Seahawks vs. Redskins Odds: Seattle Opens as 4.5 Point Favorite

As the Seattle Seahawks look to earn their third straight victory in a row this Sunday over the Washington Redskins, Pete Carroll's boys are listed as slight favorites this week, according to Oddsshark.com.

Seattle opened as a 4.5 point favorite this week over the struggling Redskins, though the line shifted a bit back in Washington' favor and now sits a 3.5. The status of quarterback Tarvaris Jackson and his injured pectoral muscle may have caused some oddsmakers to sway away from the Seahawks just a little, even though the Redskins let a win slip through their fingers last week against the Cowboys, marking their sixth straight loss of the season. 

The small spread and struggling Redskins leads me to believe that this could be some easy money this week, as long as the Seahawks can continue their strong play with the running game. This game also includes a 37.5 over/under, another thing to think about when placing bets this weekend.
