Redskins 2013-14 Season Odds
WASHINGTON, D.C. (The Spread) - Will the Redskins stay healthy enough to make another run to the playoffs this season? Let's check out their odds.
According to oddsmakers from online sports book Bovada.lv, the Redskins are 33/1 long shots to win the 2014 Super Bowl and 18/1 to win the NFC Conference this season. The Skins are also +250 to win the NFC East Division in 2014 and have an over/under total of 8.5 for the number of wins they'll compile this season. Their odds to make the playoffs are +130 for and -160 against.
The Redskins didn't make a big splash in free agency, instead addressing needs with smaller moves. They signed E.J. Biggers, Xavier Nixon, Lance Lewis, Donte Stallworth and quarterback Pat White, who had been out of football before inking a deal with Washington. The team also re-signed cornerback DeAngelo Hall.
The Skins didn't have a first-round pick but in the second they filled a need at defensive back with the selection of NC State cornerback David Amerson. In the third they drafted Florida tight end Jordan Reed and in the fourth they selected Fresno State safety Phillip Thomas. In the sixth, they took another safety in Georgia's Bacarri Rambo.
The Redskins' success this season hinders on the health of quarterback Robert Griffin III, who had an incredible rookie season while leading the team to the playoffs a year ago. He's been healthy enough to practice but Mike Shanahan doesn't want to risk his health in the preseason and instead has held him out of games. But if RGIII is completely healthy, there's no reason to believe Washington couldn't win the division again and make some noise in the postseason. The NFC East isn't the juggernaut it's been in year's past.
