Oddsmakers currently have the Rams listed as 2½-point favorites versus the Redskins, while the game’s total is sitting at 42.
Quarterback Kirk Cousins was less than stellar against Miami, going 21-of-31 for 196 yards with a touchdown and two interceptions. Expect Washington to continue to lean on running back Alfred Morris, who racked up 121 yards on 25 carries last week but has scored only one touchdown in his last six contests. The defense was excellent in Week 1, holding the Dolphins to 256 total yards, but a special-teams failure – Jarvis Landry’s 69-yard punt return for a TD – capped Miami’s fourth-quarter comeback.
In their last action, Washington was a 17-10 loser at home against the Dolphins. They failed to cover the +4-point spread as underdogs, while the combined score (27) was profitable news for UNDER bettors.
Team record: 0-1 SU,0-1 ATS

Washington is 1-4 SU in its last 5 games at home
Quarterback Nick Foles was solid in his St. Louis debut last week, going 18-of-27 for 297 yards with a touchdown and no interceptions. Foles has found a comfortable target in tight end Jared Cook, who hauled in five passes for 85 yards last week and made a pair of TD catches against Washington last year. The Rams’ defense gave up 343 yards against Seattle but also recorded six sacks and came up with a huge fourth-down stop in overtime to seal the victory.
In their last action, St. Louis was a 34-31 winner at home against the Seahawks. They covered the +3.5-point spread as underdogs, while the combined score (65) was profitable news for OVER bettors.
