Many sports betting players were picking Washington to win the NFC East, despite a number of changes and a tumultuous offseason. The Redskins are talented enough, but they were burned last week, and this week in St. Louis, they’re going to take their frustrations out on the rebuilding Rams and their rookie quarterback, who will learn a few lessons in this game.

  • What: NFL betting
  • When: Sunday, September 26th, 4:05 PM ET
  • Where: Edward Jones Dome, St. Louis, MO
  • P
  • Pick: Washington Redskins -3.5

The Redskins (1-1) were rather unfortunate to lose 30-27 at home to Houston as Graham Gano missed a field goal that would have given them the win, but the offense came together in Donovan McNabb’s second game. The Rams (0-2) are still a major work in progress, but they at least put forth a good effort in a 16-14 loss in Oakland. The Redskins need this win to keep pace in the NFC East, while the Rams have zero expectations for this year, and Sam Bradford will face a tough defense in his third NFL game.

The Houston defense isn’t that scary, some critics will say, but McNabb still threw for 426 yards and a touchdown, which is no small feat. McNabb saw that the defense was having problems and put it upon himself to keep his team in the game, especially given that the running game was pretty much non-existent outside of Clinton Portis’ two scores. The Redskins gave up three sacks and McNabb was pressured a lot, which makes his big game all the more impressive.

Bradford was 14-of-25 for 167 yards, two touchdowns and a pick, and he’s been pretty good in his first couple of games, showing a feel for the pass rush and a quick and accurate release. Steven Jackson had 75 yards on 19 carries, and he may be fresher throughout the season as he doesn’t have to do it all alone. Bradford is going to hit some rough patches, but so far, he looks like he has the temperament to handle it all.

Defensive Matchups: Redskins Rams Betting

The Redskins’ secondary was torched by Houston, failing to take advantage of a great pass rush that racked up five sacks on the day. To be fair, they were going up against arguably the league’s best receiver in Andre Johnson and a prolific Houston offense, but the Redskins have a better defense than they showed last week and they’ll be eager to prove that against the Rams.

The Rams gave up 404 yards against an anemic Oakland offense, and outside of middle James Laurinaitis, there isn’t really any good players on this entire unit, which is ranked 28th through the first two games. Defensive end Chris Long has been a big disappointment, and the secondary is average, at best. There’s a lot of pressure on Laurinaitis to make every tackle, which is good for his development, but the Rams need a lot of work on this side of the ball.

Notable Injuries: Redskins Rams Betting

Rookie tackle Trent Williams (knee), safety Chris Horton (ankle) and receiver Anthony Armstrong (groin) didn’t practice this week, which means they probably won’t go for the Redskins.

Safeties Craig Dahl (concussion) and Oshiomogho Atogwe (thigh), as well as receiver Laurent Robinson (foot) are unlikely to play for the Rams.

Betting Edge: Draw

Outlook and Pick: Redskins Rams Betting

The Redskins are 3.5-point NFL betting favorites on the road against the Rams, who are 3-7 SU and 4-6 ATS in their last 10 meetings with Washington since 1994. In St. Louis since 1995, the Redskins are 4-1 both SU and ATS, and it’s safe to say they should rout the Rams this weekend. The Rams just aren’t talented enough to hang with a Washington team that will be angry from last week’s loss, and the defense will be in the mood to rough up Bradford, who has to handle the Redskins’ blitzes. Look for an easy online betting win for the Redskins on Sunday.
