If You Are Betting On The Washington Odds At +14
Washington is 3-4 straight up and against the spread so far this season. They average 21.1 points (21st), 241.0 passing yards (18th), 99.0 rushing yards (23rd) per game. They are coming off a bye week after beating the Tampa Bay Buccaneers two weeks ago.
QB Kirk Cousins (1737 yards, 9 TDs & 8 INTs) has completed 68.7 of his passes, posting an 85.1 passer rating so far in 2015. Cousins is coming off his best game of the season. He threw for 317 yards, three touchdowns and zero touchdowns against the Bucs.
WR Pierre Garcon (37 rec, 350 yards, 3 TDs) and TE Jordan Reed (35 rec, 350 yards, 3 TDs) are the top two pass catchers for Washington. DeSean Jackson has been sidelined since week one.
RB Alfred Morris (91 att, 302 yards, 0 TD) averages 3.3 yards per carry and leads the team in rushing yards. Rookie rusher Matt Jones (63 att, 249 yards, 3 TDs) leads the team in rushing touchdowns, but he hasn’t found the end zone since week two.
Washington defense allows 24.0 points (16th), 232.0 passing yards (11th) and 128.4 rushing yards (30th) per game. Dashon Goldson has 56 tackles, Ryan Kerrigan has 3.5 sacks and Bashaud Breeland has eight passes deflected.
If You Are Betting On The New England Patriots Odds At +14.5
The New England Patriots are 7-0 straight up and 4-1-2 against the spread so far this season. They are averaging 35.3 points (1st), 329.3 passing yards (2nd) and 85.3 rushing yards (30th) per game. They demolished AFC East rival Dolphins 36-7 on Thursday Night Football last week.
QB Tom Brady is the highest rated quarterback in the league entering week 9 with a 115.8 passer rating. He has thrown 2410 yards, 20 touchdowns and one interception this season. What makes that so amazing? This is his sixteenth year in the league and 38th on the planet.
TE Rob Gronkowski (40 rec, 646 yards, 7 TDs), WR Julian Edelman (52 rec, 584 yards, 6 TDs) and RB Dion Lewis (32 rec, 349 yards, 1 TDs) are Brady main’s targets in the passing game. And they are the largest reason for Brady’s success because he doesn’t give them much time to catch the ball. Brady’s time-to-throw average of 2.22 seconds is the fastest in the NFL.
RB LeGarrette Blount (69 att, 318 yards, 4 TDs) and Dion Lewis (45 att, 220 yards, 2 TDs) haven’t been called to run the ball much this season. Expect that to change only when coach Bill Belichick decides to.
New England defense allows 19.0 points (8th), 249.0 passing yards (15th) and 98.7 rushing yards (7th) per game. Jamie Collins leads the team with 51 tackles and 4.5 sacks.
