Washington Redskins vs St. Louis Rams Pick, Prediction, and Odds
In one of the more intriguing week 2 NFL match-up's that we came across, the Washington Redskins are heading on the road to take on the St. Louis Rams. The Rams nearly pulled off an impressive victory against the Detroit Lions on the road last week, but came up just short as Matthew Stafford threw a touchdown pass with just seconds remaining to get the win. The Redskins on the other hand did pull off that huge road upset, as they went into the Super Dome with their rookie quarterback in Robert Griffin III and knocked off Drew Brees and the New Orleans Saints. If things had gone just a bit different for the Rams, we could be looking at two surprise teams sitting at 1-0 going into week 2 of the season.

The Redskins will once again rely on Robert Griffin III, but they'll use that running game quite a bit as well. I expect the Rams to put up quite a fight in this game though, so look for Griffin to have to throw the ball a good bit in this game and step up to lead his team again. The Rams on the other side have a very balanced offense that features Steven Jackson who is a great option to run with, as well as Sam Bradford who showed a good bit of poise last week in their game against the Lions. This is going to be a fun one to watch, and the game will kick off at 4:05pm EST, and will be played in St. Louis.

You have to love the RGIII train that is rolling right now, as this guy is one of the hottest topics in the NFL. While I don't know if this Redskins team is a playoff team just yet, I think that they are talented enough all around to be able to go on the road and get a win against the Rams. Don't take anything away from the Rams though as this team is much improved under Jeff Fisher, but they are going to have a tough time slowly down Griffin in this match-up. I'm going to go with the Redskins to win it by just over a touchdown in St. Louis.
Prediction: Washington Redskins- 31 St. Louis Rams- 21
I like the line here and I think it's set just about where I expected. I'd like to see it move to -2.5 for the Redskins, but regardless I'm still going to be betting on the Redskins to get the win and also to cover that spread of -3.
Pick: Washington Redskins -3
