1. Washington Football Team Covers The Spread At Home

The Rams opened up as a double-digit favorite on the road in this game. The line has gone down a bit because the public is getting on Washington. That is not a bad move heading into this one. Both Washington and the Rams are 2-2 against the spread this season.

The Rams have not covered either of the last two games. They were a huge favorite over the Giants in Week 4 and could not deliver. As for Washington, they hung in against the Ravens and ended up covering the spread in the game. They also covered Week 1 against the Eagles when they won outright.

Both of those games were at home. This would make it 3-0 ATS at home this season if Washington was able to keep this game close.

This is not saying they are going to win the game. This is saying that they could keep the game close with relatively little threat of winning.
