1. Washington Football Team over 8.5 wins (-115)
When the NFL released the schedules for the 2021 season, many fans of the Washington Football Team recognized the difficult schedule that the team would have to face.
On Washington’s schedule, there are pockets of the season that are presumably more difficult than others, such as the stretch in October and November.
It’s hard to count games as an “automatic win” by looking at the schedule, but in this case, sorting out the schedule this way will help fans and analysts make an accurate prediction on what the season could be like for Washington.
The expectations are high for Washington this year, so it’s not far-fetched to assume that they can sweep the Eagles and Giants, and defeat teams such as the Falcons and Panthers. If Washington can at least split with Dallas, then that is seven wins right there.
Washington has difficult matchups on their schedule this year, but they are not automatic losses. Those difficult matchups are what make good teams eventually great.
Based upon the assumed victories above, Washington would have to win two more games to hit the over on WynnBet’s win total (8.5 wins). The Football Team has matchups with the Broncos, Chargers, Raiders, Saints and Seahawks that could even lean in their favor.
For Washington, there are various paths to hitting the over on their win total, and with expectations running high, it’s not out of the realm of possibility that Washington could win anywhere from 10-14 games.
