Redskins +6 at Eagles -6
The (6-5) Washington Redskins head to Philadelphia tonight to take on the (5-6) Eagles. This is a big match-up tonight considering the playoff implications at hand. The Dallas Cowboys lead to NFC East currently with a record of 7-5, and the loser of this game is most likely out of the divisional race, and also on the outside looking in as far as the Wild Card races goes. It is more a must win situation for the Eagles but the Redskins also need a win after dropping two straight.
With the loss of Alex Smith due to injury, the offense has struggled for the Redskins. Offensively, the Eagles are averaging 20.9 points per game. They will need to start playing better on the offense end if they want to win their division. Carson Wentz is completing 69 percent of his passes, totaling 2,540 yards and 16TD/6 INTs thus far.
Betting the Monday Night game-
Let’s be honest, here, the best bet that comes to mine after seeing this line is to take the Eagles at home -6, and the Redskins are without Alex Smith and on the road. But let’s dive into this one deeper-
- 5-1 ATS in their last 6 games following a straight up loss.
- 7-19 ATS in their last 26 Monday games.
- 5-0 ATS in their last 5 games following a ATS loss.
- 4-1 ATS in their last 5 games as an underdog.
- Eagles are 0-5 ATS in their last 5 home games.
- Eagles are 1-4 ATS in their last 5 games in December.
- Eagles are 2-7 ATS in their last 9 games as a favorite.

Who to pick?
The trends in this one point to picking the Redskins +6. This is going to be a super tight line in my opinion, and I do believe the Eagles win this game ultimately. With a line of +6, the Redskins can lose by around a FG and still cover, which is what I think happens in this one. Let’s not forget what happened in Colt McCoy’s last Monday Night Start.
This was in 2014, but similarly, the Redskins were an underdog and on the road against an NFC East. The Redskins, as a 9 point underdog, ended up beating the Cowboys on the road in overtime, with a score of 20-17. As far as this game goes, I have a final score of 21-17 Eagles. Pick- Redskins +6
