For the fourth time in five road games this year, the Redskins are underdogs Sunday in Seattle. The Seahawks have installed as 4-point favorites.

A look at the point-spreads for the Redskins and Seahawks.

Week 6: Redskins (plus 2.5) at Carolina. Panthers 33-20.

Week 7: Redskins (plus 5.5) vs. Buffalo in Toronto. Bills 23-0.

Week 9: Redskins (plus 4) at Miami: Dolphins 20-9.

The Redskins are 1-3 against the spread on the road. Last year, they were 5-3 ATS on the road.

Week 3: Seahawks (minus 3.5) vs. Arizona. Seahawks 13-10.

Week 4: Seahawks (plus 4.5) vs. Atlanta. Falcons 30-28.

Week 8: Seahawks (plus 2.5) at Bengals. Bengals 34-12.
