2018 Washington Redskins NFL Betting Odds and Schedule
“Toto, I’ve a feeling we’re not in Kansas anymore.” The arrival of Alex Smith hasn’t impressed the best NFL gambling sites, as far as Washington Redskins odds go. Could it be karma? The Skins signed Smith to a four-year contract. That’s a hell of a lot more commitment than they showed Kirk Cousins. As you’ll recall, Cousins became the first quarterback in league history to be franchise tagged in consecutive years. On the other hand, maybe Smith just isn’t as demanding as Cousins.
After all, Smith is indeed known for playing it safe. Smith passed the ball 22 times when under pressure last season. That’s fifth behind Russell Wilson (33), Phillip Rivers (29), Andy Dalton (25), and Jacoby Brissett (24). Not exactly sure how that equals “playing it safe,” but there you have it. Also, Smith is just plain better than Cousins. At least according to Madden. The video game. Not the actual Super Bowl-winning former head coach.

On the defensive side, the Redskins have been stocking up on defensive backs like ants storing food for the winter. They´re up to seven at the moment, including draft picks and UFAs. They did lose Kendall Fuller in the Alex Smith trade. As well as Bashaud Breeland to free agency. “I think I can definitely add another ball-hawking defender,” sixth round pick Adonis Alexander said. “They already have a lot of great DBs there but, just adding depth. I feel like I can add a lot to the special teams, also. … A hard-nosed defender, passionate player, great teammate, physical presence.” Just the kind of presence they lack on the odds-boards at the best NFL gambling sites.
