Redskins Betting Preview Week 8

Washington has covered just two of seven games this season but goes into Thursday night getting 15.5 points against the spread. Even with all that cushion, can we trust the Redskins to score enough points to keep this close enough

This team ranks near the bottom of the league in both offensive and defensive DVOA with very little to be excited about, especially going against a Vikings team that is firing on all cylinders. One would imagine Washington's goal is to slow the game down by leading with the rush and keeping Minnesota's offense off the field, but the Vikings are also a top-10 defensive team against the rush.

Vikings Betting Preview Week 8

Three straight wins have the Vikings at 5-2 in the standings and against the spread. In their last two games, Minnesota's offense has put up a combined 70 points in a pair of much-needed wins over NFC opponents.

Adam Thielen and Stefon Diggs having nothing more to complain about, as Kirk Cousins has finally started moving the offense in the direction many expected going into this season. The passing game is finally in sync with the dominant rushing attack led by Dalvin Cook, who is putting together an All-Pro season. Minnesota is too dangerous in every facet for Washington to compete with.

Redskins vs. Vikings Prediction

We've seen some of the large spreads wind up for bettors backing the favorite early in the season. It happened to the Patriots against the Jets and the Bills against the Dolphins so far, and it will likely continue happening at some point. Giving away astronomical amounts of points just isn't a conducive way to ensure betting success.

That said, is there any way we can back Washington here? Minnesota is in the middle of a hot streak and welcoming in a team overmatched in every way with very little to play for. We'll get the effort out of the Redskins, but maybe not much else.

Washington allows nearly 135 rushing yards per game so Behind Cook running the ball and Cousins distributing without too many mistakes, the Vikings cruise to a win and a cover.

Two extremely low-scoring games have managed to mask the fact that Washington's defense cannot stop anybody, especially in the running game.

Minnesota has scored at least 28 points in four of their last five games, including 38 and 42 in their last two games versus much better defenses than they'll face on Sunday. The Vikings' team total for points is set at 29.5 (-110) at William Hil, and we are taking the over.

For a generous NJ sportsbook bonus and some of the fairest NFL betting lines in the industry, head over to the William Hill app and take the Vikings to score at least 30 points for a third straight game in Week 8.
