Super Bowl Path: Washington Commanders Future Betting Odds

Which Wentz Will Show Up?

A year after somehow managing to win the NFC East despite going just 7-9, the Washington Commanders notched only seven victories once again in 2021. Their 7-10 record was not good enough to reach the postseason and a mediocre season from journeyman quarterback Taylor Heinicke prompted Washington to trade for the beleaguered Carson Wentz to take over under center. Unsurprisingly, that move hasn’t done much to help the Washington Commanders’ future betting odds.

Take a look at the PointSpreads page, keep updated with the NFL news and Washington Commanders’ stats were fairly pedestrian across the board last season with the offense and defense both in the bottom-third in scoring and yardage. Wentz replacing Heineke should be somewhat of an improvement and the drafting of wide receiver Jahan Dotson in the 1st round adds some much-needed playmaking ability. But, Washington probably didn’t do enough to improve on a season in which the Commanders didn’t even reach their win total over/under of 7.5 victories.

Wentz Has a Lot to Prove

Carson Wentz

  • Passing Yards: 3600.5 (-105o)
  • Passing Touchdowns: 23.5 (-115o)
  • Interceptions: 10.5 (-110o)

Even though player Carson Wentz’s only season with the Indianapolis Colts was a successful one in statistical terms — he had a 27:7 touchdown-to-interception ratio and threw for over 3,500 yards — the Colts were eager to swap him for Matt Ryan and the Commanders didn’t have to give up much in terms of draft assets to get him. Wentz did lead the Colts to a 9-8 record but they missed the playoffs.

Now, Wentz is, yet again, with a new team where he is tasked with showing that he is a starting-caliber NFL quarterback. For most of his career, he has been very good at limiting turnovers but not as good at racking up big yardage numbers through the air. So, he might not be the safest bet in terms of Washington Commanders’ future betting odds across the board. He has had over 3,600 passing yards in a season only once since his rookie season and tends to alternate between seasons of 21 touchdowns or fewer and 27 touchdowns or more. His stats are all over the place.

Gibson is Underrated

Antonio Gibson

  • Rushing Yards: 869.5 (+110o)
  • Rushing Touchdowns: 7.5 (+120o)

After surprising a lot of people around the league with a very good rookie season (especially for a third-round pick), Antonio Gibson was even better as a sophomore. He ran for 1,037 yards with seven touchdowns, averaging four yards a carry and playing a huge role in Washington’s offense. While he might not have the strength of a Derrick Henry or the speed of a Dalvin Cook, he is a very tough runner who is a consistent performer when he gets the touches.

Gibson does have to contend with J.D. McKissic (mostly in the passing game) and rookie third-rounder Brian Robinson but he is the unquestioned top back for Washington. Look for him to get even more touches with Wentz under center. The Washington Commanders’ stats were, overall, pretty bad on offense but the rare bright spot was what Gibson brought to the table. If the Commanders are going to compete in the NFC East, Gibson will be right at the center of it and should be able to beat out his rather pedestrian over/under figures.

Receivers Have Tons of Promise

Terry McLaurin

  • Receptions: 75.5 (-110o)
  • Receiving Yards: 1000.5 (-115o)
  • Receiving Touchdowns: 6.5 (-115o)

Despite having to deal with a rotating cast of characters at quarterback during his time with Washington, Terry McLaurin has routinely put up big numbers while establishing himself as one of the best young receivers in the NFL. 2021 was no different for McLaurin as he caught 77 passes for 1,053 yards. He only reached the end zone five times, though, continuing a trend of high-yardage, low-score seasons for him.

The Washington Commanders’ future betting odds like McLaurin’s chances to eclipse the 1,000-yard mark again. While Wentz is far from a sure thing at quarterback, he is significantly better than Taylor Heineke which should only help McLaurin going forward. All McLaurin has done in the NFL is produce and he has been very durable too which always helps. Each of his overs looks promising.

Jahan Dotson

  • Receptions: 49.5 (-115o)
  • Receiving Yards: 575.5 (-130o)
  • Receiving Touchdowns: 3.5 (-115o)

It’s tough to rely on a rookie wide receiver from a gambling perspective but Jahan Dotson, who Washington drafted out of Penn State with the No. 16 overall pick in April’s NFL draft, is being thrown into the fire right away. He projects as the Commanders’ No. 2 pass-catcher, behind McLaurin, and should feature prominently in an offense that doesn’t have a ton of proven targets.

The Washington Commanders’ future betting odds are understandably low on Dotson’s projected rookie year production. But, that means he’s a very intriguing guy to bet on. Dotson caught 91 passes for 1,182 yards (with 12 touchdowns) in his final year in State College so he can handle the heavy workload that the Commanders will likely direct his way. It’s a risk betting on a rookie but Dotson is worth it.
