NFL gambling has not gone well at all with Washington, as they have paid out gamblers just 1 out of 7 times with the NFL odds so far this year while Atlanta is 5-2 against the spread. The Washington Redskins are 2-5 straight up and coming off their bye week, which followed a 17-27 NFL gambling loss to the Philadelphia Eagles on Monday night football in which they were 9-point home dogs with the NFL odds.
The Redskins have lost 3 consecutive games straight up and 2 straight with the NFL gambling board. Washington’s offensive problems are now notorious as head coach Jim Zorn was stripped of his play calling duties prior to the Redskins NFL gambling matchup with Philadelphia.
Washington ranks 29th overall with the NFL odds for scoring. Sherm Lewis, who was calling bingo numbers in retirement last month, is now calling the Redskins plays for the rest of the NFL gambling season. The results were not any better with him calling the shots against the Eagles.
Washington has gone under the NFL gambling total in 5 out of 7 games this year. The Atlanta Falcons are 4-3 straight up but have lost their last two NFL gambling matchups straight up. Atlanta is coming off a 27-35 loss on Monday Night Football at New Orleans but covered the NFL gambling line as 11-point dogs.
The Falcons are the defending champions of the NFC South and are struggling on defense as they rank just 29th in NFL gambling for total yards allowed. Second year quarterback Matt Ryan has also struggled as of late and has a NFL gambling quarterback rating of only 82.4 with 9 interceptions compared to 12 touchdown passes.
In his last three games he has ratings of 68.4, 66.1, and 46.6 and threw a costly “pick 6” against the Saints. I’ve got to play better,” Ryan said. “As a quarterback, you’ve got to protect the football better, and I haven’t done a great job of that the last couple of weeks.”
Atlanta has covered 9 out of their last 12 home games while Washington has gotten the cash in just 1 out of their last 7 games on the road.
