Redskins vs. Eagles betting: Monday Night Football odds

Howard Smith-USA TODAY Sports

Washington owns several key betting trends as the Monday Night football betting odds have gyrated a bit against the Philadelphia Eagles.

The Washington Redskins are 9-2-1 ATS in their last 12 games played in September, and they'll have Robert Griffin III back on the field on Monday night as they start their season at home against the Philadelphia Eagles to open up the Monday Night Football doubleheader.

Griffin claims to be 100 percent healthy, and NFL fans will get their first look at him back in action on Monday night. The Redskins swept the season series against Philadelphia last year, going 2-0 SU and ATS en route to a perfect 6-0 ATS record against NFC East opponents last season.

In fact, the Redskins are 12-2 ATS in their last 14 divisional games and they are favored by 3.5 points tonight, after being as high as 6.5 points last week.

NFL fans will also get their first look in this game at Chip Kelly's NFL offense. How often will he run his up-tempo style? The Eagles are an ugly 1-8 SU and 2-7 ATS in their last nine games as an underdog.

The total is set at 52 points.

MNF's second game: Texans vs. Chargers odds

The Houston Texans enter the second part of the Monday Night football odds doubleheader as a 4-point favorite on the road against San Diego. Houston has never beaten the Chargers with an 0-4 SU and ATS franchise record against them, but their last meeting was back in 2010.

The Texans are 6-1 ATS in their last seven September games, but 0-5 ATS in their last five Monday Night Football appearances.

Mike McCoy makes his head coaching debut for the Chargers Monday night and will try to create a game plan that helps Philip Rivers cut down on the mistakes that have plagued him in recent seasons. He gets a tough first assignment going up against the Houston Texans, who finished seventh in the NFL last season in total defense.

The total for the Houston at San Diego game is set at 44 points. Houston's offense has come out firing over the last few years, resulting in a 16-4 record on the OVER in the Texans' last 20 September contests.

The OddsShark.com computer predicts a 28-23 final in favor of Houston.
