Football Betting Online Odds:
The Redskins are coming off a 7-9 season that saw them finish 3rd in the NFC East. All in all this marked the team’s second consecutive season that they missed out on the postseason. The club decided that enough was enough and decided to trade away Kirk Cousins. Cousins wasn’t too happy in Washington since the Redskins didn’t want to pay him his due. Now the Redskins are prepared to move forward with Alex Smith. Smith is an underrated veteran who is coming off a phenomenal season. No doubt Washington is hoping Smith can duplicate last year’s success in Washington. However, Smith was surrounded by great players on offense. Without those keys at his disposal, it seems unlikely that he will be as great as he was last year.
Players to Watch: Alex Smith (4,042 passing yards, 26 TD, 5 INT), Samaje Perine (603 rushing yards, 1 TD, 2 F), and Jamison Crowder (789 receiving yards, 3 TD, 66 REC).
The Ravens are coming off a 9-7 season that saw them finish 2nd in the AFC North. The team was coming off an 8-8 season but was unable to make much improvement. A lot of their problems stemmed from an offense that wasn’t as explosive as they had been in years past. Furthermore, Flacco didn’t look remotely close to the guy that won them the Super Bowl. Oddly enough, the Ravens gave Flacco a ton of money after winning the Super Bowl. Several years down the road, and it’s looking like Flacco is one of the most overpaid quarterbacks in the league. Just take a look at the below listed odds.
Players to Watch: Joe Flacco (3,141 passing yards, 18 TD, 13 INT), Alex Collins (973 rushing yards, 6 TD, 2 F), and Javorius Allen (250 receiving yards, 2 TD, 46 REC).
