If you regularly follow the NFL, you have probably already decided who you think will win the Super Bowl this season. If your choice is the same as the one you had prior to the start of the season, then allow me to congratulate you. It is tough to make a pick and stick with it, especially when you see a team emerge that suddenly looks to be unbeatable.
The Baltimore Ravens are the team that have emerged of late to become a favorite, although the Seattle Seahawks are also giving them a run for their money. This is proving to be a tough year to make a pick, though, as there are a lot of very good teams who could get hot at just the right time when the playoffs come around.
One team that certainly falls into that category is the Green Bay Packers, who will be looking to take a firm grip on the NFC North when they host the Washington Redskins on Sunday. The Packers are in as a 13-point favorite against the Redskins, with the point total for this one set at 41 ½.

Why bet on the Washington Redskins?
The Washington Redskins record is among the worst in the league, but you have to give this team some credit for not totally tanking when it would certainly have been easy to do so. Dwayne Haskins is starting to look a little more comfortable as an NFL starting QB, with the end result being that the Redskins have now picked up back to back wins over the Detroit Lions and the Carolina Panthers.
This is a much tougher proposition, though, as it’s never easy to go to Lambeau Field and come away with anything other than a loss. The Redskins are 3-6 SU in their last 9 meetings with the Packers and are just 4-15 SU in their last 19 overall. One angle worth looking at is the point spread, with Washington going 6-2 ATS in their last 8 versus the NFC North.

Why bet on the Green Bay Packers?
The Green Bay Packers had themselves a poor showing a couple of weeks ago in a 37-8 loss to the San Francisco 49ers that had some people questioning their ability to get out of the NFC once the playoffs begin. It is perhaps a little too early to be writing off a team that is 9-3 on the season and in control of their division.
The Packers still have a legitimate shot at landing one of the top 2 seeds in the conference, but they do need to finish strong and take advantage of their games against lesser teams. They did that last week with a 31-13 win over the Giants and will be looking for more of the same here. Green bay has won 5 of their last 6 at home and are 6-2 ATS in their last 8 versus teams from the NFC East.

Redskins vs Packers Expert Pick and Final Score Prediction
While the Packers won big against the Giants last week, their performance was not as convincing as the score suggests. Still, you would expect them to come out and get the job done at home against inferior opposition.
