How much chalk is too much chalk? That’s the question oddsmakers have been forced to answer in regards to the Week 9 contest featuring the New England Patriots and Washington Redskins at Gilette Stadium. Sportsbooks in Vegas and offshore opened the Pats as 14-point favorites for the clash, with some even posting numbers as high as -15.
- The Redskins are 1-9 SU in their last 10 games after a win.
- The Patriots are 5-0 ATS in their last five games at home in November.
- The Redskins are 1-6 SU and ATS in their last seven games after the bye.
That’s what happens when you’re as good as the Patriots are. New England has seemingly carried the momentum from Super Bowl XLIX forward and have strung together seven consecutive wins out of the gate, going 4-2-1 ATS during that span.;
In something that’s become the unfortunate norm for ‘Skins fans and backers alike, Washington has been underwhelming to say the least in 2015. Behind new starting quarterback Kirk Cousins, the Redskins have gone 3-4 SU and ATS in their first seven games.
Washington topped Tampa Bay 31-30 in Week 7 before having a bye in Week 8, which won’t inspire any confidence for Redskins bettors. In their last 10 games after a win, the ‘Skins have collected just one victory the following week.
