Betting market: Mark Sanchez at quarterback? Fewer than 25% of bettors are on Washington, but the Redskins have received some sharp action, as bet signals have been triggered on +4.5 and +4.

Most books are now at 3.5, so it will be interesting to see if there’s another wave of action that pushes the Redskins to the key number of +3 (check out the most updated click here for the most updated odds). — Mark Gallant

Trend to know: Since 2003, the under is 22-15-2 (59.5%) in December or later at FedEx Field, making it one of six stadiums where bettors have profited at least 6.0 units on the under in this spot.

When the Redskins face a divisional opponent in this spot, the under is 13-6-2 (68.4%), going under the total by 3.3 points per game. — Abrams

Did you know? If the current spread holds, this will be just the third time that Eli Manning will be listed as a road favorite since the beginning of the 2016 regular season, according to our Bet Labs data.

Here is a list of quarterbacks to be listed as a road favorite in more games than Manning over that span: Sam Bradford, Trevor Siemian, Derek Carr, Tyrod Taylor. — Evan Abrams
