Injury-Plagued Redskins are Big Underdogs vs Legion of Boom

The Seattle Seahawks are typically known as slow starters, and after Russell Wilson and company failed to get off the ground for the first few weeks of the season, they’re once again looking like the same old stellar Seahawks ahead of Week 9’s matchup with the Washington Redskins.

MyBookie opened the ’Skins as touchdown road underdogs with a total of 45.

Shark Bites
  • The total has gone OVER in 19 of the Seahawks’ last 25 games when hosting an East Coast team.
  • The Seahawks are 2-9 ATS in their last 11 games in the late afternoon.
  • The Redskins are 9-23 SU in their last 32 games on the road.

Seattle is coming off a thrilling 41-38 shootout win over the upstart Houston Texans thanks to the heroic efforts of Wilson. The Seahawks quarterback, who has already eclipsed the 2,000 passing yard mark, threw for 452 yards and four touchdowns vs a solid Texans defense. Injuries were a major issue for the Wisconsin product in 2016, but he’s as dominant as ever now that he’s at full health.

The Seahawks running game is nearly non-existent at this point due to Thomas Rawls and Eddie Lacy’s inability to get much done on the ground in the wake of the serious injury Chris Carson suffered at the beginning of the year, but it hasn’t mattered much. The defense is once again spectacular, as the “Legion of Boom” leads the NFL in the fewest points allowed per game at 15.7.

Speaking of injuries, the Redskins are one of the most banged-up teams in the league right now. On Monday, coach Jay Gruden said his team had 13 players who were questionable to play vs the Seahawks and seven that were inactive. The biggest question mark is oft-injured tight end Jordan Reed, who strained his right hamstring in his squad’s 33-19 loss to Dallas in Week 8 that dropped the Redskins to 3-4 SU in 2017.

Playing in Seattle is a daunting task for any club, however it’s nearly impossible for teams with losing records. In the Seahawks’ last 23 home games vs teams with sub-.500 records, they’re a sizzling 21-2.
