odds on the Washington Redskins have seen the totals start to drop as Washington continues to go under the total each week.
Gamblers that have bet Washington under the total in NFL odds have had a lot of success this season. The NFL lines are starting to go a little bit lower on Washington games but NFL odds makers have been very slow to react to the under trend.
NFL odds on Washington games have only seen one total of under 40 all season. That is despite the fact that Washington is 2-8-1 to the under this season versus the NFL odds. The big reason that Washington continues to go under the NFL odds is a defense that ranks in the Top 5 in the NFL. It also helps Washington that they have an offense that is based on running the ball. Anytime you have an offense based around the run you will shorten the game and that means lower totals in NFL odds. The Redskins rely upon Clinton Portis to move the ball down the field and that chews up the clock. Gamblers betting Washington games under the NFL odds have definitely been rewarded this season. With five games remaining, it is a guarantee that betting Washington under the NFL lines will have been profitable this season.
NFL lines stats show that Washington has not allowed more than 24 points in any game on defense while the offense has only scored more than 24 points once. A slow moving offense and a stout defense is a great recipe for unders in NFL odds. With a former quarterback as head coach in Jim Zorn, it is possible that everyone was caught off guard with how low scoring the Redskins would be this season.
Sometimes in NFL lines the oddsmakers will be slow to adjust to something, especially if it goes under the radar a little bit. That is definitely the case with Washington games going under the NFL odds. There still may be a little bit of value in betting Washington games under the NFL odds, despite the fact the totals are starting to drift lower.
