When you see that there is a Saturday NFL game then you know that the football online betting season is coming to a close. It is really as devastating as finding out that Santa isn’t real. However, it isn’t over until the nose tackle sings and plenty of football wagering to do yet. I thought I would take a look at this week’s Saturday NFL game, and for good measure throw in a pick for Thursday Night NFL as well.
Saturday NFL Game – Washington Redskins vs. Chicago Bears
The Washington Redskins go to Chi- Town to face the Chicago Bears this Saturday. In terms of the playoff picture the Bears faced extinction some time ago and really only serve as a paper weight for this game. They can play spoiler as they almost did against the Green Bay Packers this past weekend, which in turn had consequences for the Redskins. Washington is -3.5 on the pointspead and the Total Over Under wager is set at 45.5 with no Moneyline posted yet.
Saturday NFL Game – Washington Redskins Preview
Washington could have made their lives a lot easier if they had beat the Carolina Panthers last week, but they didn’t and now they have a much more difficult road to nab the last NFC Wildcard spot. Green Bay ironically with their win over the Bears locked up the first NFC Wildcard, so this Saturday NFL game against Chicago is pivotal for the Redskins.
So for the Redskins to make the playoffs it looks something like this- win their last two games of the season against the Bears and the New York Giants and then hope that the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and the Green Bay Packers both lose one of their final two games. That sounds doable right?
Saturday NFL Lines – Point Spread Betting
I think the Redskins win this game and I like them on the -3.5 pointspread. Although Kirk “Pornstache” Cousins had a brutal game against Carolina with zero TDs, I think he is too good for a repeat dud. The Skins will be motivated and their destiny is somewhat in their hands. Chicago played tough against historic rival Green Bay and is at home, but I think they are already thinking about golf etc. Redskins on the pointspread to win on the Saturday NFL game.
Thursday Night Football Betting – Picks
As promised, a sneak peek at the Thursday Night Football game between the New York Giants and the Philadelphia Eagles. The Eagles are now mathematically eliminated from a playoff run and will be playing for pride against a divisional rival.
The New York Giants sport a very solid 10-4 record and will be in the playoffs, and could potentially even win their division. This would require the electrifying Dallas Cowboys to lose their last two games of the season and for the Giants to win their remaining two games. The Giants would then clinch the NFC East division as they beat the Cowboys twice headsup this season.
Thursday Night Football Odds – Online Betting
Coming back to earth for a moment we see that the Giants are -3 point spread favorites in Philadelphia which seems about right. There is no moneyline yet and the Over Under sits at 42. This could be a tough one as eliminated teams that play against historic rivals tend to play very tough- particularly at home. I think this could turn out to be a squeaker of a game and a possible upset.
Normally I would give this game a pass, but with the season running out I might make a game time decision on the Eagles +3. Conversely, this might be a very good time to look at a New York Giants Future Bet as I sense another “spooky” Eli Manning/Giants playoff run about to start.
