NFL Football Betting Odds:
The Panthers pounce into this Week 6 matchup sporting a 3-1 record that ranks them 2nd in the NFC South. Right now the division is led by the 4-1 New Orleans Saints, who are off to a great start. With that in mind, it’s clear the Panthers cannot afford anymore slip ups if they are to have a chance of gunning down the Saints in the divisional round. Fortunately the Panthers are coming off a Bye Week and should be well rested in order to face this Washington squad. All in all Washington hasn’t looked that great as of late; their last matchup ended in a 43-19 blowout at the hands of the Saints, but are certainly capable of showing up this Sunday. The Panthers on the other hand, should have enough weapons to handle Washington. Right now Carolina is averaging 26.0 per game which is better than the 20.8 that the Redskins deliver.
Players to Watch: Cam Newton (883 passing yards, 7 TD, 3 INT), Christian McCaffrey (329 rushing yards, 0 TD, 1 F), and Devin Funchess (238 receiving yards, 1 TD, 0 F).
The Redskins enter this weekend’s action sitting at .500 with their 2-2 record. Washington’s two wins on the season are against the Cardinals and the Packers, so they haven’t really been beating up tough competition. Their two loses were against the Colts and the Saints, both of which were troubling. The Colts matchup is worrisome because Indianapolis doesn’t look that tough this season. The Saints contest on the other hand, ended in a blowout. On one hand you can say that Alex Smith was brought in to give this Washington offense more consistency but clearly failed to deliver in that matchup. However, you can also say that defense is the strength of this team and if you’re expect Smith to be able to consistently get you over 43-points you’re going to end up losing most matchups.
Players to Watch: Alex Smith (1,042 passing yards, 4 TD, 2 INT), Adrian Peterson (242 rushing yards, 3 TD, 0 F), and Chris Thompson (200 receiving yards, 1 TD, 0 F).
