Football point spread: Washington Redskins vs. Minnesota Vikings

The betting preview and point spread of the Week 16 football game Washington Redskins vs. Minnesota Vikings.

Football point spread: Washington Redskins vs. Minnesota Vikings There is no playoff battle like the final Sunday football game, which will see the Washington Redskins (7-7) match up to the Minnesota Vikings (8-6). The Redskins are in a tougher position for the playoff berth race, Washington must win both of its final two games, including the final against the Cowboys and must hope that the Saints lose one of their two final games. Meanwhile the Vikings are on their 5-game winning streak and their final season game will be against the Broncos (6-8). If the Minnesota Vikings win the Sunday game and New Orleans loses one of its final games, Minnesota is going to the playoffs. With home advantage and playoffs in sight, it's hardly a surprise that the Vikings are the favorite team this Sunday. At the online sportsbook Bodog Sports the point spread on the Washington Redskins vs. Minnesota Vikings game is currently sitting at -6.5 points chalk the Vikings with the total at 40.5 points. The betting line on the Redskins is underdog +215 and the line on Minnesota is posted at -255 with the online bookie.

 Both football teams match up well statistically and whether the Vikings will be able to cover the spread is uncertain. Minnesota's wide receiver Sidney Rice, linebacker Dontarrious Thomas and cornerback Antoine Winfield were all listed as questionable for the game against the Redskins and will likely be a game-day decision. At the Washington Redskins camp, quarterback Jason Campbell is out for the Sunday football game and will be replaced by quarterback Todd Collins, who did a good job for the 22-10 win last week against the Giants. Washington's tight end Todd Yoder and safety Pierson Prioleau are questionable, while wide receiver Keenan McCardell was upgraded to probable. Also consider that Washington is 3-6-1 against the spread in its last 10 games and Minnesota is 4-1 against the spread in its last 5 games. The total has gone UNDER in 6 of Minnesota's last 7 games when playing Washington.
