The Washington Football Team’s season grows increasingly bleak with each passing week. So much so, that it’s tough to envision them accomplishing much of anything but maybe a high draft pick for 2022.
Washington sits at 2-4 through six games, and they’ll be hard-pressed to pick up win number three of the season this Sunday, as they’ll make the trek up to Lambeau Field to lock horns with Aaron Rodgers and the Green Bay Packers.
The Packers might be the hottest team in the NFL. After dropping their Week 1 tilt in embarrassing fashion, they’ve rattled off five straight wins, in which they’ve outscored their opponents 141-98.
Seeing that Washington is a significant underdog — 7.5 points, per WynnBET — and is unlikely to win, fans might as well place a wager on the game to try and earn some extra walking around money, right?
With that in mind, here are three prop bets that’ve caught our eye. As always, all odds listed come courtesy of WynnBET.
3 best bets for Washington Football Team vs Green Bay Packers
3. Over 48 total points scored (-110)
You won’t find us picking the under in any Washington games this season. Unless, you know, the number is set at something ridiculous. We lost some money in Week 6 betting the over, but who could have predicted Taylor Heinicke and the offense being rendered useless against the Chiefs’ league-worst defense?
We’re gonna return to the well this Sunday and hope for a different outcome. You can bet over 48 total points to be scored at -110 odds (bet $110 to win $100). It’s not great value, but it’s a much lower number than we were expecting.
The Packers’ offense only ranks 15th in points per game, but that can be attributed to their tough early-season schedule. Rodgers and Co. should have no trouble moving the ball against Washington’s underachieving defense.
On the flip side, Green Bay’s defense is nothing to write home about. They’re without a couple of big pieces, including Za’Darius Smith and Jaire Alexander, so a bounce back performance is definitely in the cards for Heinicke.
While Lambeau Field is a fortress, if the Old Dominion product can’t put up points against a middling Packers defense, it might be time to consider benching him. Sorry, but there’s far too many playmakers on the offense for it to not score at least 20 points this Sunday.
