Redskins' 2015 NFL Season Odds
WASHINGTON, D.C. (The Spread) - The Redskins haven't won more than four games since their run to the playoffs in 2012 and their win total for 2015 reflects their recent struggles.
According to oddsmakers from online sports book Bovada.lv, the Redskins' over/under for wins in the 2015 NFL regular season has been set at 6.5. Their Super Bowl odds are also 125/1 while their NFC Conference Championship odds are 66/1. They're long shots to win the NFC East Division as well at 14/1.
Among the Redskins' offseason additions were cornerback Chris Culliver, safeties Jeron Johnson and Dashon Goldson, as well as defensive linemen Terrance Knighton, Ricky Jean Francois and Stephen Paea. Despite his durability concerns, Brian Orakpo (Tennessee) was one of Washington's key offseason losses.
In the draft the Redskins selected offensive tackle Brandon Scherff and defensive end Preston Smith. The team will attempt to improve the protection in front of quarterback Robert Griffin III, whose career is at a bit of a crossroad. If he can somehow match the production that he had in 2012 when he took the league by storm as a rookie, then Washington could surprise this season. At the very least, the defense should be improved and the weapons around RGIII (DeSean Jackson, Alfred Morris, Pierre Garcon, Jordan Reed, Matt Jones) are potent.
