This will happen when the Jacksonville Jaguars (2-1) head to our nation’s capitol to take on the Washington Redskins (3-1). Kickoff from FedEx Field is set for 7:00 PM, and the game can be viewed by NFL betting fans nationally on NBC. The Jaguars have had a bunch of mixed results this far this pre-season.
After failing to cover the spread in their opening two pre-season games in the friendly confines of Jacksonville Municipal Stadium, the Jags hit the road and knocked off the Bucs 23-17 in their Week 3 match-up. Jacksonville was tabbed as three-point road favorites on the NFL betting line, and easily covered the spread for their pro football betting enthusiasts.
A late Tampa Bay touchdown made Jags bettors sweat out the closing minutes a bit, but it did push the game over the closing ‘total’ of 34.5. The Jacksonville offense was opportunistic, putting up their 23 points in large part to four Tampa Bay turnovers. HC Jack Del Rio has to be concerned about his running game, which was stymied for the second consecutive week.
Even though Washington had three victorious pre-season games leading up to their Week 3 showdown with the Carolina Panthers, HC Jim Zorn has to be upset about the fact that his Skins were trounced 47-3. The first-stringers that played so well in their first three games were outscored 34-0 forcing NFL betting hat backed Washington to rip their tickets up early on.
Under bettors didn’t fare much better, as the 50 combined points easily sailed over the football betting line set at 37. DE Jason Taylor injured his leg after suffering a frightening injury in the first half, but is thankfully expected to be ready for Washington’s regular season opener against the Giants in the Meadowlands.
The NFL betting line in this contest is now Washington -3 -115 with the ‘total’ lined at 34.
