The Washington Football Team failed to get off the schneid on Sunday.
They’re now riding a three-game losing streak, their longest skid since way back in the early parts of last season when they dropped five straight from Weeks 2-6.
The good news for Washington, which has been rare to come by in 2021, is that they’ll have an excellent chance to stop the bleeding in Week 8 when they travel out west to face a Broncos team that’s lost four straight after a 3-0 start.
By no means should Washington take Denver lightly. This matchup just presents MUCH easier competition compared to the last three weeks.
Will the Football Team take advantage of this opportunity? Or will they play down to their competition and suffer another listless loss? Let’s see what Vegas is saying about their chances to come away with a win.
Washington vs Broncos Odds Week 8
According to our friends at WynnBET, Washington opens as 3.5-point road underdogs. They have -120 odds to cover the spread (bet $120 to win $100). If you want to bet Washington to win outright, they have +145 odds on the moneyline (bet $100 to win $145). Given the value, that bet definitely piques our interest.
The over/under for Sunday’s game is set at 43.5 points, which isn’t surprising considering how much these offenses are struggling to score points. You can get both the over and under at -110, so bet $110 to win $100.
Washington vs Broncos Prediction Week 8
We seriously hope Ron Rivera is stressing the importance of this game, because Tom Brady and the 6-1 Buccaneers are up next on the schedule.
Believe it or not, we actually think Washington wins on Sunday. Teddy Bridgewater is nowhere close to fully healthy. Since returning from injury, the Broncos star has five touchdowns and four interceptions. Look for Washington’s defense, which is coming off arguably its best game of the year, to force a turnover or two.
However, the game will have to be won by Washington’s offense, which failed to score on each of its four red zone trips in Week 7.
The Browns gashed the Broncos for 182 rushing yards last Thursday, so this could be Antonio Gibson’s breakout game. Gibson, who’s playing through a stress fracture in his shin, has averaged just 53 rushing yards per game since Week 1.
Look for Washington to set the tone on the ground and Taylor Heinicke to throw for a pair of touchdowns en route to a 24-14 victory.
