Washington Redskins (2-4) at Denver Broncos (5-1)
Kickoff: Sunday, October 27th, at 4:25PM Eastern
Line: Denver -12.5 Total: 58
Many experienced online NFL football wagering fans still think the Denver Broncos are the team to beat in the 2013 NFL season. Apparently, Internet oddsmakers agree. When the Broncos host the Washington Redskins this Sunday, the Skins will be 12.5 underdogs at YouWager.
The Broncos may have Peyton Manning behind center, but their defense is an entirely different story. Denver gave up 48 points to the Dallas Cowboys, and 39 points to Indianapolis. On average, Denver’s defense allows opponents 28.1 points and 397 yards per game. YouWager’s serious NFL football wagering enthusiasts say they expect to see some improvement in this unit with the return of Von Miller. Denver’s offense is the top scoring offense in the entire league, averaging 42.6 points and 469.3 yards per game. Quarterback Peyton Manning has completed 71.6 percent of his passes, with 25 touchdowns, 3 interceptions, and he has been sacked 9 times this season. Even though they just lost, for the first time in the 2013 NFL football betting season, to the Colts, many sports bettors still see the Broncos as a favorite to win the next Super Bowl. The Broncos also host Kansas City on November 17th, and the online betting community rightfully expects that contest to be an exciting and challenging contest that could offer a preview of the postseason.
The Washington Redskins seemed to begin the 2013 season in a slow, sluggish manner, but they won their last two matchups, and they will surely be playing hard to get their third victory of the season. Washington’s offense currently averages 25.3 points and 415.8 yards per game, and so far, quarterback Robert Griffin III has completed 60.1 percent of his throws, with 8 touchdowns and 6 interceptions. He has also rushed for 233 yards. Washington’s defense is allowing opponents 30.7 points and 389 yards per game, on average, with 4 interceptions, 18 sacks, and five fumble recoveries. The NFC East is still wide open, and the Redskins are not out the race. Not yet, anyway.
The Broncos are 5-1 against the spread against a team with a losing record, 4-1 against the spread after a loss, and 1-3-1 against the spread in their last 5 games. The Redskins are 6-1 against the spread against a team with a winning record, 7-3 against the spread following a win, and 2-5 against the spread in their last 7 games.
