Redskins-Cardinals Series Has Been One-Sided

The Arizona Cardinals have been underwhelming all year long, and time is running out for Bruce Arians’ club to prove it’s still a postseason contender. Next up on the docket for the Cards is a Week 13 date with Kirk Cousins and the Washington Redskins.

Shark Bites
  • The Redskins are 1-9 SU and 2-8 ATS in their last 10 games in Week 13.
  • The Redskins are 8-2-1 SU and 10-1 ATS in their last 11 games as underdog.
  • The Cardinals are 7-3 SU in their last 10 games after a loss.

Oddsmakers initially set the ’Skins as 2.5-point road underdogs with an OVER/UNDER of 50.5.

This matchup has been extremely one-sided of late, as Washington is a fantastic 8-1 SU in its last nine vs the Cards.

Just how bad are things for Arizona backers? The Cardinals haven’t covered the spread in five straight weeks, with the latest failure coming in the form of a 38-19 thumping by the Atlanta Falcons as 4-point underdogs.

Quietly, the Redskins have been the best OVER bet in the NFL this year. The OVER/UNDER has gone 9-2 in Washington’s 11 games, and 14 of the Redskins’ last 16 games have gone above the closing total dating back to last year. Expect the OVER to get a significant amount of traction based on that stat alone.

If you’re betting team totals, consider doubling down on Washington. Kirk Cousins’ crew have scored at least 26 points in five of their last six tilts.
