Fading Vikings Search for End to Slide in Washington

Sam Bradford Vikings

The Minnesota Vikings search for an end to the three-game straight-up losing streak that has threatened their hold on first place in the NFC North when they take on the Washington Redskins on Sunday afternoon in an NFL Week 10 matchup at FedExField.

Shark Bites
  • The favored team is 3-9 ATS in its last 12 games in this matchup.
  • The total has gone OVER in seven of the Redskins' last eight games with a closing total of 42.5 or less.
  • The Vikings are 8-2 ATS in their last 10 games after consecutive ATS losses.

Last weekend, the Vikings fell 22-16 in Detroit as 5-point road chalk, and open as underdogs for the first time in six games. Minnesota has averaged just 12 points per game during its slide, and rides a three-game ATS losing streak for the first time since 2013, ending an impressive 19-2 ATS run.

The Redskins return from a bye looking to end a two-game SU slide. Washington has won two straight SU at home, but is favored for just the second time in five, and is a dismal 1-8 ATS in nine as betting chalk. The Redskins settled for a 27-27 draw with Cincinnati as 3-point road underdogs two weeks ago, but surrendered just 17.5 ppg over their previous four.

The Vikings have held the upper hand in recent dates with the Redskins, winning seven of 10 SU, 4-6 ATS, but were handed a 38-26 beating as 2.5-point chalk in their last visit to the nation's capital four years ago.
