Could the wild affairs on Sunday see spill over to the NFL Monday Night Football action between Pittsburgh Washington in terms of our Free Pick. Good morning as the shock waves reverberated through the desert in pro football action last night. Arizona with their even more improved defense allowed Tom Brady’s understudy to beat them in their home crib last night. This punctuated surprises up and down the board. Only super stable element so far is that the Browns are still awful. Let us see how this can work for our advantage in the early game on Monday at 7PM with the underdog Redskins at home this evening.
NFL Monday Night Football : Stress Point
With leads not being very stable in most cities on Sunday, the Steelers are going to be hard pressed to continually stop the Redskins. Yes Pittsburgh is pretty proficient in stopping the run but they have the matador mindset for pass defense. Let them run by you and maybe they will tire out is all that can be said in their 30th rated pass defense last year. Not only does Cousins complete at a high percentage just under 70 percent, his receiving corps has young options that have jailbreak ability. Can not see any scenario in which this team is out of it the entire night. If they fall behind early, live wagering on the Skins should be a good money maker for those that like fly by your seat wagering. We have liked Kirk Cousins in this situation for Washington since the early preseason action.
Josh Norman Debut for Washington
Steelers better get their running game going as the new look Redskins secondary has Josh Norman now as their anchor. While not the very best in the game, he can shut down almost anything thrown his way. Big Ben is a proven commodity but Ladarius Green being out at tight end will be more of a factor than people will realize. The sky high total opening at 50 has migrated slightly south to 49 1/2 here.
Washington can play just enough defense to slow down the Steelers. Kirk Cousins is ready to take that next step forward in the QB elite of the league. Redskins are + 2 1/2 point underdogs. They should be the favorite. Washington ML for our NFL Monday Night Football Free Pick for the early game. Good fortune and we will see you next time here at HRWager.
