The Redskins are coming off their bye week and have a tough road ahead that starts with Drew Brees and the New Orleans Saints. Alex Smith and the Skins are currently 6.5-point underdogs in NOLA, and that number will grow to 7 soon.
Washington’s road defense looks really stout as they have allowed just six points, but the sample size is too small, and it was against a terrible Bradford-led Arizona Cardinals team. That said, we can’t count the Skins out of this one. They only let the Packers put up 17 and held Luck and the Colts to 21. The Saints will most likely win this one, but the Redskins are primed for an upset.
Stay away from the Saints if the number moves to 7 or more. If the number moves to 7.5 take the Skins.
Prediction: Lean to Saints for survivor pools and to win by 6.5 points or less.
