49ers vs. Redskins 2013, Week 12: Betting odds, trends & pick

USA TODAY Sports

San Francisco hits the road as a favorite in an almost must-win situation.

The San Francisco 49ers and Washington Redskins will clash at FedEx Field on Monday night with playoff implication abound.

While the Redskins appear to be finished at 3-7 despite playing in the atrocious NFC East, the 49ers still have plenty to fight for. San Francisco enters the game third in the NFC West, trailing the Arizona Cardinals by a half-game after they dispatched the Indianapolis Colts on Sunday. Currently, Arizona resides in the sixth and final NFC playoff position.

The Redskins enter this game as a five-point underdog. They have not only been losing on the field but costing their supporters money at the betting window, going 3-7 against the spread as well. In its last seven games, Washington is a grizzly 1-6 ATS.

San Francisco on the other hand has played more to the middle, with a 6-3-1 mark ATS this season. Oddly, the 49ers are a covering juggernaut on Monday Night Football, beating the spread in each of their last seven appearances, according to OddsShark.com. Also, San Francisco is 6-1 ATS as road favorites in its last seven games.

The over/under line in this one is 47. The 49ers have been going over the last few years despite people thinking of them as more of a defensive team. In their last 21 contests, they have eclipsed the line 15 times. The Redskins have also been over four of their last five games.

Computer pick: San Francisco 29, Washington 17

In other words, bet the 49ers and the under in this one.
