We’re onto Week 6 and the Washington Football Team has yet to win back-to-back games. That’s embarrassing for a reigning division champ, and it looks even worse when you consider the caliber of opponent they’ve faced thus far.
Unfortunately for fans, Washington’s campaign hit a new low point on Sunday, as they fell to New Orleans in humiliating fashion at FedEx Field.
Taylor Heinicke looked like anything but a franchise quarterback. The defense performed well for the most part, but a few breakdowns in the secondary were too crippling to overcome. Even the coaching was a disaster.
In sum, Washington blew a prime opportunity to rattle off their second win a row before they hit the punishing stretch of their schedule.
That’ll start in Week 6 against a Kansas City Chiefs team that is likely itching to mop the floor with their next opponent after they were embarrassed by the Buffalo Bills at Arrowhead in primetime on Sunday night.
Let’s see what the odds are saying about Washington’s chances to topple Patrick Mahomes and Co., shall we?
Washington vs Chiefs Odds Week 6
According to our friends at WynnBET, Washington is 6.5-point home underdogs for Sunday’s game. They have -110 odds to cover the spread (bet $110 to win $100) and are +245 on the moneyline (bet $100 to win $245).
The over/under is set at 55.5 points, with both sides receiving -110 odds. At the rate these defenses are giving up points, we wouldn’t think about betting the under. At the same time, though, betting for 56 points to be scored is risky business. We’d advise waiting to see if the o/u drops before placing any wagers.
Washington vs Chiefs Prediction
They don’t come much easier than this, folks. While both teams are coming off disappointing performances, something tells us the Chiefs will be out to pummel Washington and send a statement to the rest of the league that they should still be taken seriously as Super Bowl contenders.
We like Washington’s chances to keep this close, but that’ll depend on how they start the game. If Kansas City comes out guns blazing and the Football Team comes out sluggish, this one could get ugly in a hurry.
At the end of the day, we’re counting on Mahomes to rally the troops and get back on track in the form of a 35-28 win over Washington.
