The current betting odds on tonight's game via SportsBookReview have the Redskins favored by 4 points at home, and have the over/under set at 40 points. If you feel so inclined to wager on Week 4 preseason football, the Redskins and the under are the bets I would place a few ducets on. The Redskins are 3-0 straight up and against the spread this preseason, and their defense is giving up an average of 15.7 points per game, while the offense is averaging 24 ppg.
Colt McCoy gets the start tonight, and will play the entire game. He has had a solid preseason so far as the 2nd/3rd string and looks to lock up the #2 spot on the Redskins tonight. Several offensive playmakers like Rashad Ross, Reggie Bell, Trey Williams, and others are hoping to get noticed.
Week 4 preseason football is basically a last chance show for the bottom few guys who haven't earned their spots yet. Anything can happen, and amazing performances must be looked at in a slightly different perspective.
