Seahawks @ Redskins: Super Bowl champs picked to prevail
The Washington Redskins have suffered something of a slide since the last time they faced the Seattle Seahawks. It’s been all change for the Seahawks too, albeit in the opposite direction.
In the 2012 playoffs, the NFC East victors had taken a 13-0 lead over the Seahawks before allowing their visitors to score 24 unanswered points to advance.
The next year, Washington won just three games as their quarterback Robert Griffin III declined through injury as Seattle claimed the Superbowl.
Now, the Skins are last in the NFC East. Here’s the best three bets for Seattle’s return to FedEx Field:
The Redskins have lost their last six games played at night – either on a Monday or a Thursday – while the Seahawks have triumphed in their last eight outings on a Monday.
With Griffin injured, Kirk Cousins has deputised. He has lost his last five starts, while the defending champions come into the contest fresh from a bye week.
Last week, Cousins threw a career-high four interceptions as the Skins went down 45-15 to the New York Giants on Thursday.
With Seattle’s renowned predatory secondary unit waiting for errant passes, there isn’t a better price to take in this encounter.
Not only has the stocky Seahawks running back scored three touchdown’s running the football, but Lynch also co-leads his side in receiving touchdowns too, scoring twice from eight catches.
With the Hawks’ offensive game locked around the running back, there’s very few other options to bet on in this market.
