Aviators? Red Wolves? Wild Hogs?
We wish we could offer a market on the name that will replace the Washington Football Team. (Tell you what, we’ll talk to our traders – i.e. oddsmakers.)
But don’t fret, Virginia sports fans. Even though training camp just opened, PointsBet is already offering numerous ways to bet on Washington. The Over-Under win total is 8.5, so oddsmakers are expecting a .500 season with the new 17-game schedule. Washington is +260 to win the NFC East, meaning a wager of $100 would bring a profit of $260 and total payout of $360. Dallas (+120) is the favorite.
Presumed starter Ryan Fitzpatrick is +4000 (40-to-1) to finish with the league’s most passing yards. “Fitzmagic” is +10000 (100-to-1) to win MVP, along with the Giants’ Saquon Barkley and Carolina’s Sam Darnold.
Here’s a fun one: You can bet on Washington to make the playoffs at +150 or miss them at -175 (wager $175 to profit $100). And if you’re really feeling bullish about the Team to be Named Later, you can take Ron Rivera’s crew to win the Super Bowl. That pays +5000, or 50-to-1.
