Washington Commanders Betting Odds

You are here

It has been a turbulent 12 months for the Washington Commanders. They suffered through an up-and-down 2017 campaign resulting in a 7-9 record. Then in the offseason, they lost their fearless leader and six-year quarterback Kirk Cousins. For most teams, a loss of that significance would mean a rebuild is in order. For Jay Gruden, however, it just means that he needed to go out and get a replacement - which he did. The Commanders signed Alex Smith, a three-time Pro Bowler with over 30,000 career passing yards, a bona fide star. Not a bad replacement. Because of Smith, the Washington Commanders betting odds will offer great potential for football bettors.

On the Attack

Offensively, the Commanders have several weapons to work with. Alex Smith has proven to be an impact quarterback who can will his team to victories almost single handedly, as he did in Kansas City. Much like the Chiefs offense, the Commanders boast a strong rushing attack to complement Smith’s passing.

Young speedsters Samaje Perine and Chris Thompson combined for only 897 yards in 2017 but showed flashes of elite caliber, explosive talent. Thompson, especially, took the NFL by surprise with a very strong start to the season. Consistency will be the name of the game for these two. The Commanders success this year hinges on their ability to wield a balanced run-pass attack. These backs will be called upon all season long and will need to deliver if the Commanders are to play meaningful games this winter.

Jamison Crowder returns, looking to build upon a 2017 season in which he totaled a team high 789 receiving yards. Young wideout Josh Doctson will also look to build upon an impressive 2017 season in which he proved his worth as a red zone threat, pulling in a team high 6 touchdown catches.

No Fly Zone

The strength of the Commanders defense is its hard hitting, lockdown secondary. Josh Norman will leave the opponent’s #1 receiver on an island and take him out of most passing plays. Meanwhile, vicious strong safety D.J. Swearinger has proven to be one of the NFL’s hardest hitters, forcing opponents to think twice before crossing over the middle of the field.

The Commanders will also return their leading tackler from 2017, linebacker Zach Brown. Three-time Pro Bowler Ryan Kerrigan joins Brown at linebacker, looking to put up similar numbers to his 2017 season in which he recorded an astounding 13 sacks and forced 3 fumbles.

Washington Commanders Super Bowl Betting Odds

The Commanders are projected to be near the bottom of the league this year, listed at 75-1 odds to win Super Bowl 53.
