The Washington Football Team and Detroit Lions face off in a Week 10 NFL showdown at Ford Field in Detroit.
The Washington Football Team have had a terrible season and now the question is who will be under center for this game. Starting quarterback Kyle Allen has been lost for the season because of a leg injury and Alex Smith replaced him. Alex Smith seems like the smart choice but the team could also decide to have another look at Dwayne Haskins. Haskins is still dealing with an illness and it’s unclear if he will be good to go in this game. On the season the Washington Football Team have won only two games and on the season they are averaging 19.1 points per game. On the season the Washington Football Team is averaging only 92.2 yards per game on the ground and in this game they need to do a better job of establishing the run and controlling the clock.
On the other side of this matchup is the Lions who are struggling coming into this game having lost two games in a row and on the season they have gone 3-5. Matt Patricia is a defense first coach, but he hasn’t helped improve that side of the ball much. On the season, the Lions are giving up 30 points per game. At quarterback, the Lions are still led by Matthew Stafford who has thrown for 2,127 yards, 14 touchdowns, and seven interceptions. In the last game, Stafford really struggled and made a couple of very questionable calls. Stafford did suffer a concussion in the last game and he will have to be cleared before he can go in this game.
The under is 7-3 in Washington’s Football Team last 10 road games. The over is 9-1 in the Lions last 10 home games. The Lions are 5-14 against the spread in their last 19 games overall. The under is 9-1-2 in the last 12 meetings between the Lions and Washington Football Team.
I don’t trust the Lions in this spot and I actually think this is a game where Washington can win this game and I will be putting a few dollars on the money line. To play it safe, bet Washington against the spread.
