The Redskins opened as 4 point underdogs and now sit at getting 3.5 points. It's a little surprising that the line has tightened up considering that it appears that Drew Stanton will be available and there is even a chance that Carson Palmer could start. Against a horrible Redskins secondary, even average QB play is a huge boost for a team. So having Stanton or Palmer available is a huge plus for the Cardinals.

Despite my concern with the Redskins secondary, I will say that the Redskins are the bet here with the points even with them on the road. The Cardinals are pretty banged up across the board and with some uncertainty surrounding their QB situation this week, if they win this game it is going to be close. Chances are the Redskins will keep this game close and there is a chance they can win this game outright.

Though the Redskins defense is a big question mark, this is a game the Redskins could steal on the road. The Redskins played much better in the 2nd half versus the Seahawks and if they can play that way for a full game, they can win this game.

I like the 45.5 point over in this game as well. With the Cardinals quarterback situation looking better, there is little reason to think they won't be scoring 20+ points, and in all likelihood that will be more in that 24-27 point range. The Redskins offense gets Jordan Reed back for this game and the Cardinals just lost their best defensive player in Calais Campbell. There is reason to believe that the Redskins are good for at least 20 points (and possible more) on their own. With both teams likely and capable of putting up 20+ points, there is a good chance they hit the over in this game.

5 Prop Bets:

1. Who will score the first TD of the game (player not team)?

2. Will the Redskins have over 100 yards rushing?

3. Which receiver (Garcon, Jackson, Floyd, Fitzgerald) has the most receiving yards in this game?

4. Which team gets more sacks in the game?

5. Will the Redskins average starting field position be over/under 24.5 yardline?
