Sunday Night Football Free Pick, Betting Trends and Vegas Odds

ESPN will air the Oakland Raiders versus the Washington Redskins for Sunday Night Football in this Week 3 NFL betting contest at Fedex Field.  The Raiders are coming off of two wins and the Redskins are 1-1 with a Week 2 loss to the Rams.  Washington has won their last two matchups against the Raiders, with the most recent being in 2013.

The Offensive comparison on these two teams has the passing game going to the Oakland Raiders and the running game in a tie.  Oaklands QB Derek Carr has thrown for 492 yards with a 45/60 comp/att and racked up 5 TD's.  While the Redskins QB has earned two touchdowns going 41/67 for 419 yards. 

Vegas opnening line favorite is Oakland at -3½(EVEN) and the home dog Washington have been slated with a +3½(-120) point spread. This matchup has a game total posted to 54 ½(-115) for over/under NFL bettors.  In addition, moneyline odds posted by Vegas odds makers has Oakland at -170 and Washington +150.

The Redskins are a passing offense, but can win with the run game as they showed us in Week 2 against the Rams, Rob Kelley left that game with an injury and was limited in practice heading up to this week 3 matchup.  Head Coach Jay Gruden still has Rookie Samaje Perine who earned 67 rushing yards versus the Rams and Chris Thompson who posted 77 yards on the ground.  Redskins QB Kirk Cousins is an average player, but when he’s hot and uses his targets he can put on a show.

The Raiders offensive line is one of the best in the league.  Michael Crabtree has 12 receptions for 163 yards, Amari Cooper and Jared Cook both have 9 receptions each for 95 and 81 yards respectively and Jalen Richard has put up 57 yards on 3 rec.  The Raiders have only two penaltys on the year and average 384.5 yards collectively per game.

The defensive comparison for this game has the Redskins allowing 344 yards per game versus the Raiders 310.5 with the third down conversion % allowed fairly even at 53.8 versus the Redskins at 50.0.  If the points allowed per game, so far this year will sway your NFL predictions then you should know that Washington has allowed 25 ppg and Oakland only 18.
