Redskins vs. Buccaneers: Who's Picking Who in Week 4

Looking around the web, everyone’s picks for this week’s game against the Redskins are in.  I’m 0-3 when picking the Redskins, but let’s see if my pick this week can fare better.


Peter King  thinks missing Orakpo is the difference in Tampa and picks the Buccaneers 27-25.  (Fine, I’ll buy his argument on the loss, but he needs to explain how the Redskins get to 25.  Skins score four field goals and a touchdown to get to 19. Then trailing 27-19, score a touchdown and miss the 2-point conversion late in the fourth quarter?)  If that’s his reasoning, then we can eliminate his reasoning on why the Skins will lose.

At 5 experts pick the Redskins, 7 think the Buccaneers will win. The computers and readers like us with Accuscore giving the Redskins a 54% chance of winning (even if Accuscore is only correct 50% of the time), and visitors choosing the Redskins. However, Wickersham again, thinks the Redskins will lose. Wickersham is no longer the analyst over there with the best record, but he is 3-0 when picking Redskins games.  (Someone send him a bribe.)  The new leading analyst, Chris Mortensen also picks the Buccaneers.

Three of the five prognasticators at think the Redskins will win.  The ones with the better records, continue to count on the Skins to win.

Three of the sports writers at yahoo agree that the Redskins will avoid going 1-3.

CBS Sports needs to hire me since I’m better than picking against the spread than most of their writers, and I’m funnier.  But I digress.  Exactly half of the writers are taking the home team and giving the points away.

For the second straight week, the experts are pretty much evenly divided.  What is your prediction for this week’s game?

Who will win in Week 4 down in Tampa?

  • Washington Redskins (77%, 112 Votes)
  • Tampa Bay Buccaneers (23%, 33 Votes)

Total Voters: 145
