The 2-2 Washington redskins Head to Carolina to take on the 0-3 Carolina Panthers, at Bank Of America Stadium. The Redskins only two wins this year have been on teams with a winless record, including a 9-7 win of the Rams and a 16-13 win over the Buccaneers. The Redskins also lost to the Lions in Week 3, ending Detroit’s 19-game losing streak. The Panthers, coming off of a much needed bye week, look to find their first win and beat the Redskins at home. After winning their division a year ago, the Panthers could not have gotten off to a worse start. Quarterback Jake Delhomme has thrown for just two touchdowns and a league high seven interceptions, averaging only 12.3 points a game on offense. The defense is not been any better, allowing an average of 182.7 yards a game on the ground, the worst in the NFL.

Washington vs Carolina Betting Predictions:
Final Score – Redskins 13 @ Panthers 20
Spread – Lay it down on the Panthers to cover the spread this week. Look for The Panthers to come out strong after their bye week and beat this 2-2 Redskins team, who have looked anything but impressive in their two wins this year. Look for a much better defensive game from the Carolina Panthers who went out and signed veteran defensive tackle Hollis Thomas last Thursday, to try and improve their last ranked rush defense. The Panthers running backs, DeAngelo Williams and Jonathan Stewart, need to break out of their funk this week and get back to their dominating ways from a year ago. Bet on the Carolina Panthers to cover the 4 point spread (-110).
Over/Under – I like the total to stay under the 37.5 points. These two team combined have only put up an average of 26.3 points per game. I look for Carolina’s running game to control the game against this Redskins defense, who has allowed 128 yards per game on the ground, making this one a low scoring affair. Bet the UNDER in this one (-110).
