Redskins vs Cardinals FREE NFL Pick Against the Spread from Vincent King of King Sports Picks
Washington received some much needed rest after a devastating defeat on Thanksgiving Day to the Dallas Cowboys, 31-26. The Redskins had no answer for Dak Prescott who accounted for 234 total yards and a pair of scores. It was a disappointing defeat for the defending division champions who fell 3.5 games behind Dallas in the NFC East race with five games remaining in the schedule. Next up, the Redskins take on the Arizona Cardinals today and both teams are looking to rebound from a loss.
Arizona is on the verge of missing the playoffs a season after playing in the NFC Championship and showing a lot of promise for 2016. The offense has been inconsistent and troubling and they are just 19th in the NFL in scoring, averaging 22.3 points per game this season. The Cardinals are just 2-4 ATS at home on the season.
Washington is 4-1 ATS on the road this season and it’s a must win game if they want to keep their playoff hopes alive. Dallas has ran away with the NFC East but the Wild Card is within their reach but they need to get more consistent play out of their defense. Kurt Cousins and the Redskins offense will need to have a very efficient and effective game plan going up against the Cardinals defense on their home turf.
I really don’t know what to make of this Arizona team and the ups and downs of the season. The Redskins have proven to have the ability to turn it on towards the end of the season and it must start Sunday afternoon. I am taking the Redskins and the +2.5 points on the road since they have been more reliable and have covered the spread in 3 straight games and are 8-3 ATS on the season. They have played to some close losses and the extra rest will prove to be valuable.
