The Carson Wentz disciples and truthers may want to look away from this one. The Washington Commanders traded for Wentz and got worse, if you believe one prominent sportsbook in the United States.

WynnBet Sends Washington Odds In Wrong Direction

The organization formerly known as the Football Team traded a package of picks Wednesday that reportedly included two third-round picks for the Colts quarterback less than a season after Indianapolis traded a first-round and Day 2 pick for Wentz.

But WynnBet reacted to the news by making Washington an even longer shot in Super Bowl 57 futures, moving the Washington Commanders from +6000 to +7500 to win the Super Bowl. The operator was pretty darn blunt too when asked why.

“We had them low because of possible QB improvement, said Alan Berg, senior trading manager at WynnBet. “I have no idea what the coaches or staff are thinking with this move. Reeks of desperation so we moved them higher.”

Yikes.

Either way, the Washington Commanders chances in 2022 appeared slim. The implied probability on 60-1 odds is just 1.6% versus 1.3% for 75-1.

At the time of publish, +7500 were the longest odds offered for the Commanders to win the Super Bowl with odds across other legal sportsbooks ranging from +4000 to +6000. Meanwhile, the Colts sit between +2500 and +3000 despite currently having absolutely nothing at the quarterback position (but a ton of newly created cap space.

Sorry, Washington football fans. Don’t shoot the messenger. After all, perhaps the Commanders can fly by all the haters and reach the Super Bowl anyway in 2022, like the Bengals did in 2021 at 150-1 preseason odds.
