Minnesota Vikings vs. Washington Redskins

Point Spread Value

A few weeks ago, betting on the Vikings would have been instinctive. That's not the case anymore as the Vikings slip to a third straight defeat and 5-3-0 ATS record, highlighted by a 3.6 winning margin and +1.6 differential versus the spread. The last time we saw the Redskins they were in London where they settled on a rather unsatisfactory tie with the Bengals. (That must have stung Kirk Cousins and Company because they could have had the win.) Nevertheless, they've had a bye week to process and recharge and should be raring to go. Having said all that it's a tossup on our week 10 NFL picks. We are of two minds on this game. As such, we're hedging our bets with an ATS pick on the Vikings but a SU pick on the Redskins.

The Survivor

What's happening to the Vikings? A five-game winning streak going into a week 6 bye has turned into a three-game losing streak ahead of week 10. Since the bye week, the Vikings are a shadow of their pre-bye selves. Sam Bradford appears to have lost the plot, making it hard to trust this offense all of a sudden. The defense is still solid and should do its part to keep them in the game, but if the offensive woes continue it's hard to see the Vikings bounce back in this game.

Game Total

The Vikings are habitual UNDER performers in total betting thanks to the stout defense. As such, they are 2-5-0 in O/U betting ahead of week 10 with a run of three straight UNDERs cashing since a week 6 bye. The Redskins are the complete opposite with a high-octane offense that puts up points in a hurry. Washington boasts a 6-2-0 OVER record this season and in their last four games they've gone 2-2-0 in O/U under betting. If Kirk Cousins and the offense do light up at home, this could go against the grain and crack the low-total currently on offer at most sports betting exchanges.
