Monday Night Football Odds at Get That Bet — Redskins Better Get Act Together Quickly For Date with Seahawks

The Seattle Seahawks got a pretty good look at Kirk Cousins when he came in to relieve Robert Griffin III in a playoff game two years ago. Now they encounter Cousins again, who may have had his confidence shaken after an error-prone effort last time out. The defending Super Bowl champs are not known as a team to exhibit much mercy, so Cousins will have to clean up his act in a hurry if he wants to lead the Washington Redskins to a victory against the Monday night football odds, as the ESPN-televised game is scheduled to begin at 8:30 PM ET at FedEx Field in Landover, MD.

Cousins blew up – in a bad way – against the New York Giants in a Thursday night game that was televised nationally on CBS. Over a stretch of five possessions, he threw four interceptions, as the Giants laughed their way to a 45-14 victory. His head coach, Jay Gruden, called it “a great learning experience” for him, but it can also be the kind of thing that ruins his confidence, which could be deadly against a Seattle defense that, regardless of the statistics, is about as good as there is in the National Football League.

Meanwhile, the Seahawks beat the Denver Broncos in an overtime game two weeks ago, as Peyton Manning’s team failed to extract revenge for the 43-8 beat -down they suffered in the Super Bowl. As a reward, coach Pete Carroll gave the team a whole week off, and so they should be fresh and rested for this encounter in the nation’s capital.

With the Redskins dealing with some injury issues at the moment, and Russell Wilson cruising along with 69% accuracy at quarterback, there is the potential for this to be a long night indeed for the home team.

In the Monday night football betting odds that have been placed on this game at Get That Bet (http://www.getthatbet.com), the Seahawks are favored by a touchdown:

Seattle Seahawks -7 (-115)
Washington Redskins +7 (-105)

Over 45.5 Points -110
Under 45.5 Points -110

Wilson has thrown six touchdown passes and has been intercepted only once. The team is figuring out ways to use Percy Harvin, and he has already caught passes, not to mention executing some very effective runs. Seattle will look to control the ball on offense behind the bruising Marshall Lynch, who averages 4.5 yards per carry. The Seahawks have actually outgained their opponents on the ground by a 444-217 margin, which is rather astounding.

 

As they look at the statistics, Get That Bet customers can see that Seattle has allowed the opposition to convert 49% on third down, but one must also consider that they have faced the cream of the crop in terms of NFL quarterbacks, going up against Aaron Rodgers, Philip Rivers and Peyton Manning thus far. Cousins isn’t going to show them anything new and different. His left tackle, Trent Williams, dislocated his left kneecap against the Giants but will play in this one. It is also likely that Niles Paul, the tight end who leads the team with 21 catches but had a concussion against the Giants, will play as well. However, Monday night football bettors will have to take a “wait and see” attitude toward Washington’s pass protection, and such a thing makes it critical that Alfred Morris, who ranks fifth in the NFL in rushing, is able to help this team move the chains.

If Jay Gruden’s team stinks out the joint again, what will his brother Jon Gruden, in the booth as the color commentator for ESPN, have to say about it? If things get out of hand in the second half, that may be the most intriguing part of the evening.
