The Washington Redskins can clinch first place in the NFC East division with a win on Saturday when they visit the Philadelphia Eagles as 3-point betting underdogs at sportsbooks monitored by OddsShark.com.
The Redskins improved their straight-up record to 7-7 and claimed sole possession of top spot in the division with a standout performance last weekend, knocking off the visiting Buffalo Bills by a 35-25 score and notching their sixth SU win of the campaign as betting underdogs.
The victory also improves their against-the-spread record to 7-7 ahead of Saturday night’s Redskins vs. Eagles betting matchup at Lincoln Financial Field.
The Eagles prepare to face their divisional rivals after suffering a 40-17 beating on Sunday night at the hands of the Arizona Cardinals, ending a two-game SU win streak. The Philadelphia defense has given up an average of 456.6 yards over their past five games, and 43.3 points per game in three losses during that stretch.
However, a win on Saturday night would give the Eagles control of their playoff destiny ahead of their Week 17 date with the New York Giants.
Philadelphia emerged victorious in their last two home dates with the Redskins according to the OddsShark NFL Database, and can capture the division crown with wins over Washington and then the Giants next weekend.
The Kansas City Chiefs will have their eye on first place in the AFC West when they host the Cleveland Browns on Sunday as 13-point favorites. The 9-5 Chiefs have won eight straight SU to seize control of the top AFC Wild Card, and pull to within one game of the division-leading Denver Broncos.
Kansas City has also dominated at the sportsbooks, going 7-1 ATS during their current tear, and face a Browns squad that is a dismal 1-8 SU and ATS in their past nine games and has not won at Arrowhead Stadium since 2003.
The Broncos will try to end their current two-game losing skid when they host the Cincinnati Bengals on Monday night as 3.5-point favorites. Denver’s offense has struggled since their 30-24 Week 12 win over New England, averaging just 18.7 points per game while being held scoreless in the second half of their past three contests.
The 11-3 Bengals can lock up a first-round bye with a win, but are just 1-4 SU, 3-2 ATS, in their past five games against Denver.
In other NFL Week 16 betting action, the Giants visit the Minnesota Vikings as 6-point underdogs, while the Patriots visit the New York Jets as 3-point chalk, and the Baltimore Ravens host the Pittsburgh Steelers as 10-point underdogs.
