2018 NFL Season: Washington Redskins Betting Recap
The Washington Redskins 2018 season wasn’t terrible, but it wasn’t great and the fans seem to be growling tired of the Redskins play. They finished with a 7-9 record and in the process lost Alex Smith for the season and probably lost him for even longer. The important question for people laying bets though is how much money they made against the spread. There are many good teams who struggle against the spread, and there are many losing teams who can make you a lot of money. So did the Redskins make anyone money? Let’s break down the Redskins betting recap for the season.
Washington Redskins Against The Spread
Even though the Washington Redskins had a losing record. they did make a person betting every one of their games at least a little bit of cash. On the season the Redskins were 9-7 against the spread overall. At home they were 4-4 against the spread but on the road they were 5-3. It seems that people seemed to underestimate what the Redskins could do on the road, which overinflated the lines, and put some money in bettors pockets.
On grass last year the Redskins were 8-5 against the spread but on turf they weren’t going coming in going only 1-2 against the spread. The Redskins didn’t make a ton of money going against the spread but it was at least positive which is all that matters.
Washington Redskins Over Under
If you bet every game on the under for Washington Redskins just like their against the spread they made you a little bit of money. Overall last year the over was the play seven times while the under was the play nine times. At home the over was the play four times and the under was the play four times.
Away from home the over was the play three times and the under was the play five times. On grass the over was the play five times while the under was the play eight times.
On turf the over was the play two times and the under was the play one time. Overall their games averaged 40 points total per game.
Washington Redskins Futures
The Washington Redskins have a ton of questions heading into next season and it shows with their futures. The Redskins are 150/1 odds to win the Super Bowl next year which is second worst in the league. Only the Miami Dolphins have worse odds.
In terms of winning the NFC, the Redskins have 50/1 odds which is third worst in the NFC. Only the Arizona Cardinals and Detroit Lions have worse odds coming in at 60/1. The biggest issue with the Redskins is they don’t know who their quarterback is going to be. They have Colt McCoy and are trading for Case Keenum but I don’t see either of those guys leading them to the playoffs, or even to that many wins.
Once the season is over I think this team will have one of the lowest win totals in the league. Don’t be surprised if this team only wins four or five games.
