Washington Football Team Win Total
Sean Koerner, the Director of Predictive Analytics at Action, breaks down how he’s betting the Cardinals’ win total.
To say the Football Team has had a roller coaster of an offseason would be an understatement.
Between the name change, RB Derrius Guice being arrested for charges of sexual assault then subsequently release, Ron Rivera revealing he has cancer (and has every intention of coaching through it), and reports of widespread workplace sexual harassment followed by allegations of Dan Snyder’s direct involvement, the team’s offseason would make a good 30 for 30: The Football Team one day.
However, in terms of their on-field outlook, one of the most significant developments has been Alex Smith’s return to football after what appeared to be a career-ending leg injury. I fully expect the Football Team to start Dwayne Haskins Week 1 given they spent a first-round pick to acquire him last year and need to see if he’s capable of being their QB of the future. But if he struggles early on, there’s a chance they turn to Smith.
That possibility gives their team a high floor and is one of the reasons I like their over.
One of the lone bright spots for the Football Team is their defensive line. They already had a ton of potential with Montez Sweat, Daron Payne and Jonathan Allen — all first-round picks from the previous three drafts. But now they added one of the best edge prospects we’ve seen in Chase Young.
Having an elite defensive line can make life easier on the secondary and help them sneak their way into a 6- to 7-win season.
PICK: Over 5 (-120; bet to -140)
