NFL Betting Preview
Washington Redskins (3-1) at Philadelphia Eagles (2-2)
Sunday, 1:00 pm Eastern – FOX
SBG Global Opening Line: Eagles – 5.5 , Total 43
The Washington Redskins were the overlooked team in the NFC East before the season began but after last week’s upset win over Dallas, they are starting to get respect. If they can win another road game in the division they would really establish themselves as serious playoff contenders. “All four teams are solid teams, and it’s still anybody’s division,” Washington head coach Jim Zorn said. “Our goals are still ahead of us, and we made that so by beating Dallas in Dallas.” SBG Global reports that early NFL betting has the public taking Redskins on the Road.
The Redskins have scored at least 24 points in their last three games and quarterback Jason Campbell has looked much better than a year ago.
“Everybody has to look at the Redskins in a different light now,” running back Ladell Betts said. “This is a great team. We can beat anybody. We can play with anybody.” They will get a serious test on Sunday from the Eagles although they could get a break as running back Brian Westbrook is questionable for Philadelphia. “The injury is another week older, another week of rehab for me,” Westbrook said. “By the time Sunday comes around, I’m definitely more optimistic than I was last week.”
