Daily Sports Tips – Tuesday, October 9

New Orleans Saints vs Washington Redskins (11:20am)
Redskins at the Line (+7)

The Saints and Redskins will close Week 5 of the NFL and I am confident that the Redskins can cover a line currently set at 7 points, as outsiders. Washington will enter this fixture fresh after a week off and the coaching staff are sure to have devised a plan to contain Drew Brees and the Saints’ offence. The Redskins’ pass defence does look more than capable and the line subsequently seems pretty long.

Anaheim Ducks vs Detroit Redwings (1:05pm)
Ducks at the Line (-1.5) @ $2.35

The Ducks will host the winless Red Wings this afternoon and look good enough to cover a line currently set at 1.5. The Ducks are absolutely flying and have gone 2-0 through the first few days of the new season; proving far too good for the Sharks and the Coyotes on the road. This is their first game in front of the home faithful and they can give them something to cheer about.
