Ready for some free Redskins Vs Falcons preseason picks? The Washington Redskins will be trying to pick up their first win of the preseason when they take on the Atlanta Falcons, who are also looking for their first preseason win, at the Mercedes-Benz Stadium on Thursday night. The game is scheduled to begin at 7:30 PM. ET.
Washington Redskins Analysis: The Redskins’ biggest concern going into the preseason is the quarterback position, which is a three-man race that doesn’t seem to have any clear favorite. Case Keenum, who was brought into the fold during the offseason, seems to be the default opening-day starter due to Colt McCoy being unable to play in the preseason as he is still recovering from the season-ending foot injury he suffered last season. How will this impact Redskins vs Falcons betting? Complete Week 3 preseason picks below.
Rookie quarterback could also end up being the opening-day starter, but the team has repeatedly said they do not want to throw him into the fire immediately. Also, reports coming out of the team’s camp suggest that his coaches do not think he is ready to play.
NFL Week 3 Preseason Picks Redskins Vs Falcons
Keenum, who started the first two preseason games for the Redskins, hasn’t looked particularly impressive in his limited action, completing 7 of his 16 passes for 112 yards and one touchdown. The team also hasn’t looked good on the defensive end and are giving up 26.5 points per game through their first two games.
Atlanta Falcons Analysis: The Falcons have played one more game than the Redskins but they are also looking for their first preseason win. Odds for Redskins vs Falcons betting have improved. Like the Redskins, the Falcons have been inconsistent defensively and are giving up 23.3 points per game.
The Falcons have also struggled offensively. Even though they only scored 10 points in their loss to the New York Jets in their last game, the offense looked considerably better with Matt Ryan under center in the limited action he saw in that game. With play makers like Julio Jones expected to miss the entire preseason, don’t expect to see much improvement in the offense this week.
The betting lines for this game are currently unavailable. The Redskins and Falcons are still working on a lot of issues on both sides of the field. With both offenses struggling, don’t expect to see a lot of scoring in this game. Expect the Falcons to beat the spread in this game.
