Super Bowl 2019 is still far away. Today we preview Washington Redskins betting odds. Do you love to bet? Check out these Washington Redskins betting odds.
The Washington Redskins finished with a 7-9 record last season. This was good for third in the NFC East. Despite missing out on the playoffs. The Redskins are optimistic about their chances next season. However sports betting sites aren’t as confident. Giving the Redskins +8000 odds of winning the Super Bowl.
One of the reasons the Redskins are optimistic about their chances this season is the acquisition of quarterback Alex Smith. Smith was picked up in a trade with the Kansas City Chiefs during the offseason.
The Redskins gave the Chiefs promising cornerback Kendall Fuller and a 2018 third-round draft pick for Smith, because they believe he can get them back into the playoffs. With Smith on the roster, the Redskins brought an end to the Kirk Cousins era, after using the franchise tag in the quarterback for the past two seasons.
Smith gives the Redskins a reliable veteran that doesn’t turn the ball over a lot, which was a problem they had with Cousins, but the team still has a lot of issues to address if they want to make the playoffs this season.
Super Bowl 2019 Betting Odds
Current Super Bowl 2019 betting odds for the Washington Redskins are +8000.
Washington’s running game wasn’t very effective last season, with rookie running back Samaje Perine leading the way with 603 rushing yards and one touchdown. The team also lost starting center Spencer Long during the offseason, so their running game will be a major concern for their offense this season.
Another problem the Redskins will have next season is their wide receiving corps. Last offseason, the team let their top receivers leave in free agency, and signed quarterback turned receiver Terrell Pryor as one of their starting receivers, which didn’t work out.
This year, the Redskins are hoping the acquisition of former Seattle Seahawks receiver Paul Richardson will help boost their receiving corps. The fact that Smith is very familiar with tight end Vernon Davis is also a positive for the Redskins.
Defensively, the Redskins added Pernell McPhee and Orlando Scandrick, which should boost their defensive line and secondary, and added former Virginia Tech cornerback Adonis Alexander in the supplemental draft.
The Redskins will be more competitive this season, but with the Dallas Cowboys and Philadelphia Eagles in the division, it will be difficult for them to make the playoffs.
