Colts Redskins Spread Sees NFL Line Value
The Indianapolis Colts and the Washington Redskins are both fresh off victories last Sunday, taking their records to identical 3-2 marks. But something will give on NFL Sunday night football for now they meet and the latest Colts Redskins spread would suggest that the road team (Indy) will win here. We have other ideas in our NFL betting preview.
Both reams are 3-2 ATS as well, but this spread of +3 points does the Redskins a lot of favours. Remember that the Colts are a dismal 1-2 on the road, while Washington have been solid value at home.
The Colts have issues in Week 6 traditionally, going only 2-1-7 ATS in their last 10 outings in this spot. They do play well on the road ATS and also have good stats against teams with winning records, but in defence of the Redskins their ATS form on grass is impeccable of late.
The reason we see line value in the home team is the quality of opposition last time out. Washington had to deal with the Packers, arguably one of the five best teams in the league. The Colts had an easy home game against a vastly overvalued Chiefs team that was ready to be abused. This looks like it should be a PK line in our opinion and we'll be backing Washington for the ATS win.
The Over/Under for the game is set at 43.5 points, and the value here could be a sneaky bet on the "Under". Bet on this NFL game and every other football game you can think of at one of our recommended sports books.
