The Detroit Lions are well-rested and waiting at home for a matchup with the Washington Redskins this Sunday. The Lions are just 1-5 on the season, but are coming off a 38-point win over the St. Louis Rams in their last home game, and prepared for a couple of contests at Ford Field against the ‘Skins and New York Jets.

NFL Betting: Washington Redskins @ Detroit Lions

Online Sports Betting: Detroit – 3

After a 1-2 start, the Redskins have won two of three games to get back on track in the NFC East, the lone letdown being a three-point loss to the Indianapolis Colts. Two of their three wins this season have come on the road against a couple of solid teams in the Philadelphia Eagles and Chicago Bears, with this being their second game in a row away from home.

Why To Bet On The Redskins?

Washington will look to head into the bye week on a winning note, and have the chance to close in on the New York Giants for the top spot in the NFC East with a win. Quarterback Donovan McNabb has made an immediate impact on the franchise, both in regards to his own performance, and how he has helped improve the play of the players around him. McNabb will be at his best this Sunday against a Lions’ team that struggles to get pressure on the quarterback, and that should allow the veteran to work at his own will. Turnovers have been a big part of Washington’s game this year as well, especially after cornerback DeAngelo Hall made four interceptions in the win over the Bears, and that should make a huge difference in this one as well.

Why To BetOn The Lions?

The Lions have the seventh ranked passing game in the country, even despite the loss of quarterback Matt Stafford, and if the running game can get something going, the offense will be solid. Detroit ranks in the bottom third of the league against both the pass and rush, but much of that is because four of their six games so far this year have been on the road, where the Lions have struggled mightily over the past few years. Detroit will play two in a row before heading to the road to take on the Buffalo Bills and Dallas Cowboys, and there is no reason not to believe that they can go .500 over that span.

How The Game Will Play Out

The Lions will go to the air early, but it will backfire with a talented football betting Redskins defense forcing turnovers the way that they have all year. Washington’s offense will have ample opportunity to showcase their ability in a crucial contest before the bye week, in a game that can ultimately determine how the Redskins’ season will go with no time left before the bye week.
