It's hard to believe we actually made it. After a long, dramatic offseason full of twists and turns for the Washington Commanders, a new era officially dawns this afternoon when Ron Rivera's men welcome the Arizona Cardinals for their first game of the 2023 campaign in front of a sold-out audience at FedEx Field.

What an occasion it's going to be. Until then, the stories causing conversation include what comes next for Chase Young, Champ Bailey on coming home, Sam Howell's fantasy value, and odds for today's game.

Let's delve into each topic in more detail.

Commanders game day odds vs. Cardinals

Considering everything that's unfolded surrounding the Arizona Cardinals recently, it comes as no surprise to see the Washington Commanders favored to pick up success in their first game at FedEx Field without Dan Snyder for 24 years. According to the latest odds from FanDuel Sportsbook, the spread is 7.0 points in the home team's favor, which is available at -110 in both directions (bet $110 to win $100).

Anyone who wants to take Washington on the money line can get them at -360 (bet $360 to win $100), with the Cardinals a big-time underdog with odds of +290 (bet $100 to win $290). FanDuel Sportsbook has the over/under at 38.5 points at -110 either way.
