Packers vs Redskins NFL Week 4 Odds & Expert Pick

Written by on September 19, 2018

Washington Redskins quarterback Alex Smith and Green Bay Packers signal-caller Aaron Rodgers will always be linked because of what happened at the 2005 NFL Draft. That year, Rodgers, like Smith, was being looked at as the possible No. 1 overall pick. While San Fransisco chose to draft Smith with the No. 1 overall pick, Rodgers fell all the way to Green Bay at No. 25 for reasons that no one still can figure out.Well, Rodgers has gone on to have a sure-fire, future Hall of Fame career while leading Green Bay to one Super Bowl title while Smith has been traded twice and has never come close to sniffing a championship despite carving out a fine career the last 13 seasons. Now, in his first season in Washington, Smith will look to lead his new team to victory when the Skins host Rodgers and the Packers on Sunday as slight NFL odds underdogs. If you’re wondering whether or not Washington can hold down the fort at home against the visiting Packers, let’s find out right now.

Why Bet On The Green Bay Packers?

Why should you bet on Green Bay in this Week 3 matchup? Well, because they have the best quarterback in the game today and that alone means the Packers have a chance to beat almost everyone they play.After their stunning 24-23 comeback win over Chicago in their opener, the Packers managed to scratch out a 29-29 tie in a hard-fought contest against on Sunday. A still, clearly banged-up Aaron Rodgers went 30 of 42 for 281 yards with one touchdown and no picks, but Green Bay gave up 22 points in the final quarter and needed two missed field goals to avoid defeat.

Why Bet on The Washington Redskins?

Why should you bet on Washington in Week 3? There are several good reasons to back the Skins in this contest. First, they’re playing at home. Second, Washington has a quarterback that doesn’t make mistakes in Alex Smith and it’s always a good thing when you don’t turn the ball over.Packers vs Redskins should be a close one.Next, there’s the fact that Aaron Rodgers clearly isn’t 100 percent after suffering a strained ligament in his knee in Week 1. The former league MVP will be wearing a brace on his injured knee for the second straight week. Last but not least, Green Bay certainly isn’t a powerhouse by any stretch of the imagination.

Expert Analysis & Prediction

Despite the fact that the Redskins suffered a humbling 21-9 loss to Indianapolis this past weekend after dominating Arizona in their regular season opener, I’m going with Alex Smith and company to get the big home win to cash in as a field goal underdog. Neither of these teams plays very good defense and both have veteran quarterbacks that should be able to put their fair share of points on the board.The Packers are 1-7 ATS vs. a team with a winning record and 0-4 ATS in their last 4 games overall. Conversely, the Redskins are 4-1 ATS in their last 5 games in the month of September and 9-4 ATS in their L/13 games against a team with a winning record while the home team in this NFC rivalry has gone 3-1-1 ATS in the last 5 meetings. Again, I like Washington for the big upset.Score: Green Bay Packers 27 – Washington Redskins 28
