Washington finally ended its season-long losing streak in Week 6, but the victory did little to inspire confidence heading into a Week 7 showdown with the unbeaten San Francisco 49ers. Washington pulled out a 17-16 triumph over a Miami Dolphins team that might not win a game all season – and the task becomes infinitely more difficult Sunday afternoon against a 49ers defence that ranks among the best in the league through the first six weeks.

NFL Point Spread and Betting Analysis

Bettors don’t see many scenarios in which a home team is a double-digit underdog – but that’s where Washington finds itself heading into this one. The NFC East club has been a home ‘dog of +7 points just once in the past five years – and that was in Week 5 of this year against New England, when Washington was trounced 33-7. The 49ers come in on fire as a cover option, having gone 4-1 ATS in their past five games.

Early action on the under for this game has driven the total down to 41.5 after it opened at 43. And there’s plenty of merit to the move besides Washington’s lengthy offensive struggles and the 49ers’ elite defence: San Francisco has come in under the total in four of its previous five games, and is an identical 4-1 to the under in its past five following a win. But Washington has exceeded the total in five of its past seven games at FedEx Field.

San Francisco 49ers

While the 49ers’ defensive prowess has garnered most of the acclaim during San Francisco’s unbeaten start – which includes three impressive road victories – but the run game deserves plenty of credit, as well. The 49ers’ four-headed backfield of Tevin Coleman, Matt Breida, Raheem Mostert and Jeff Wilson Jr. has helped lead the team to the second-highest rushing yard average in the league (179.8); San Francisco also has eight rushing scores.

Washington

What else can go wrong for a Washington team that has already suffered four double-digit losses and has been outscored by a combined 52 points in its first three home games? How about the potential absence of its No. 1 receiving back? Chris Thompson might be forced to miss Sunday’s Week 7 encounter as he deals with a turf toe injury suffered last week against the Dolphins. Thompson ranks sixth among running backs with 38 targets this season.
