49ers Aim to Continue Winning Ways Against Redskins

The San Francisco 49ers will try to end their six-game SU slide when they visit the nation’s capital on Sunday for an NFL Week 6 matchup with the Washington Redskins at FedExField. The Niners fell to 0-5 with last week’s 26-23 loss at Indianapolis as 1.5-point underdogs while the 2-2 Redskins return to action after enjoying a bye last weekend.

Shark Bites
  • The 49ers are 5-1 SU in their last six games on the road against the Redskins.
  • The total has gone UNDER in 11 of the Redskins’ last 12 games when hosting a West Coast team.
  • The Redskins are 11-3 SU and ATS in their last 14 games in the early afternoon.

San Francisco tumbled to 1-12 SU in its past 13 road dates with last week’s loss in Indianapolis. The defeat also put the brakes on the club’s three-game ATS win streak. Despite their ongoing losing streak, the 49ers have produced at the sportsbooks in recent road contests, going 4-3-1 ATS over their past eight. However, point production remains a concern, with the club scoring more than 20 points just four times over their past 12 road dates.

The Redskins entered their bye week on the heels of a 29-20 loss to Kansas City as 6.5-point road underdogs, and are pegged as favorites on home turf for the first time this season. Washington has produced mixed results as home chalk, losing outright in two straight while going 3-5 SU over its past eight, and has covered just once in 12 outings as double-digit home chalk since 1992.

The 49ers hold the edge in recent matchups between these squads, winning SU in four straight. San Francisco has limited the Redskins to just 10 points per game over their past three meetings, forcing the point total UNDER in each of those contests.
