The Washington Redskins are 3-1 and leading the NFC East, and they are playing a Philadelphia Eagles team that is 1-4, with just one win over the St. Louis Rams to their resume. Somehow, despite all this, oddsmakers aren't convinced the Redskins should be favored. According to the latest Week 6 NFL odds at SB Nation partner Oddsshark, the game is currently a Pick 'Em in several places with neither team favored.
The line is currently even at 5Dimes.com, with the over/under set at 47 points. Evidently, many oddsmakers still believe the Eagles are the better team despite their record, because normally, home teams get a three-point bump. Bodog.com has the Redskins as a two-point favorite, which at least makes more sense given the two team's records.
Perhaps the memory of Philadelphia's 59-28 win on Monday Night Football last year in Washington D.C. is still fresh in the minds of the oddsmakers. Perhaps they still do not believe in the Redskins this season. Either way, the Redskins will be looking to prove the doubters wrong on Sunday.
