How to bet on the Washington Commanders
The moneyline is the simplest of bets, decided by the straight-up winner and loser of each game. Consider the following example:
- Washington -185
- Eagles +210
Washington is considered a heavy favorite in this matchup (indicated by -185), requiring a $185 bet to win $100 (plus the initial bet back). The Eagles are the underdog in this matchup, paying out $310 total for a $100 bet ($210 in winnings). How much either team wins or loses by does not matter in moneyline betting, the payout remains the same.
Betting on the point spread is determinant on how many points a team wins or loses by. Take the following example:
- Washington -3.5 (-110)
- Broncos +3.5 (-110)
In this example, Washington is favored by 3.5 points, indicated by “-3.5.” If the Commanders win the game 24-20, they (-3.5) win the bet and would have a total payout of $19.09 on a $10 bet ($9.09 in profit). If the Broncos keep the game within four and lose 27-24, the Broncos (+3.5) would win, and the payout would be the same as listed above.
Point total (over/under)
The point total refers to the over/under line set by books. This number projects the total number of points scored in a game and, like prop betting, is bet whether one thinks the score will go over or under the set point total. For example, Washington’s Week 15 game against the Seattle Seahawks had a projected point total of 41.5 points. The Commanders came up just short 20-15, totaling just 35 points. Those who bet the under in the game would have cashed out.
Washington fielded one of the nastiest front fours in the NFL, often wreaking havoc for opponents. Also, their six annual games against the offense-depleted NFC East caused their projected point totals to often be lower than league average. Aside from games against offensive juggernauts like Cleveland and the Los Angeles Rams, Washington saw over/unders between 43 and 48 points in 2020.
In-play and live betting
Sometimes, the most thrilling and rewarding bets are bets made while games are being played. These are referred to as live bets or in-play bets. Odds are ever-changing during games, which would prove to be fruitful for sharp and prepared bettors. For example, if Washington (-100) was favored against the Raiders (+140) before kickoff, a payout on a $10 bet on the Commanders to win would win $10.
However, say the Commanders fell to a big 17-3 deficit in the first half despite controlling the overall game (due to a costly turnover or special teams gaffe). Odds may swing in favor of the Raiders, who may be a -110 favorite at halftime. Taking Washington to come back and win the game could present plus-odds (say, +130). Should a bettor take Washington (+130) at halftime and the Commanders pull off the comeback, winners would win $13 instead of $10 (plus the initial $10 bet).
This could also be an effective way to “hedge” your bet; say a bettor took the Raiders (+140) in that game, but Washington jumps out to a 20-0 first quarter lead and is controlling the overall feel of the game, bettors could hedge by throwing some money down on Washington (-270) to return some of the inevitably-lost bet.
Parlays and teasers
You can always string bets together in the form of parlays or teasers. Usually during busy Sundays, bettors can parlay several teams to win or cover against the spread and if all bets are successful, the payouts are multiplied. Teasers function similarly, except they allow bettors to move each point spread to a more favorable line in exchange for diminished odds.
Washington 2021 recap
Record: 7-10, Third in NFC East
Record ATS: 7-9-1
Over/under record: 7-10
Realistically, Washington is in the same exact place at the end of 2021 as they were at the end of 2020: Without an answer at quarterback, hanging their hat on a ferocious pass rush, and with seven wins. Of course, they didn’t win the division and appear in the playoffs, but– at their core– this is the same team. Quarterback will need to be addressed this offseason. With a new team identity on the way, the issues surrounding the integrity of ownership will get swept progressively farther under the proverbial rug.
