Red-Hot Redskins Looking for Fifth Straight Win and Cover

Matt Jones Redskins

Written off after an ugly 0-2 start, the Washington Redskins are suddenly one of the NFL’s hottest teams after four consecutive wins SU and ATS. They’ll look to keep the streak going in the Motor City vs the Lions, who are on a mini win streak themselves, winning and covering in two straight games.

Shark Bites
  • The Redskins are 16-5 SU in their last 21 games against the Lions.
  • The Lions are 4-12 ATS in their last 16 games after consecutive wins.
  • Detroit’s two home wins this season are by a combined four points.

Washington opened as a slight dog for the road game and has been money in this spot going back to last season. The Redskins are 5-0 SU and ATS in their last five games as road underdogs, which includes two wins this season. One interesting note regarding their current win streak is that the last time they covered the spread in five consecutive weeks was in 2012.

The teams have combined to go OVER that mark seven times so far this season and the total has gone OVER in eight of Detroit’s last 10 home games. The Skins, meanwhile, have been a hot OVER bet on the road, topping the total in five of their last six.
