Washington -7

The Washington Commanders are favored by seven points. Meaning that if you bet on Washington you need them to win by eight or more points. The Commanders should defeat the Cardinals by much more than eight points. The Cardinals had the second worst defense in the NFL last season and there is no reason to believe it will better this year. The Cardinals are starting journeyman quarterback Joshua Dobbs in this game. No disrespect to Dobbs but there is no belief in him going against this top ten defense. Washington winning by eight points or more may be the easiest bet of the NFL’s opening weekend.

Under 38.5 Total Points

The over/under for total points is set at 38.5 for this game. When picking the over/under on total points always think about the quarterbacks. Washington is starting second year quarterback, Sam Howell. Howell has one NFL start on his resume so far. Arizona is starting Joshua Dobbs. Neither one of these quarterbacks is expected to put up Patrick Mahomes like numbers this season. When you have a quarterback match-up like this one, points may come few and far between. Washington also has a very good defense. Everything points to this being a low scoring game. My prediction is Commanders 24- Cardinals 7 for a total of 31 points. Take the under!!

Antonio Gibson +135 to score a touchdown

If you pick a player for anytime touchdown scorer. It doesn’t matter when they score or how they score, as long as they get in that end zone. Washington Commanders running back, Antonio Gibson should definitely score a touchdown in this game. The Commanders’ offense coordinator, Eric Bieniemy, is a strong believer in running the football. The Cardinals defense gave up the fifth most rushing touchdowns in the NFL last season. This is perfect recipe for Gibson score a touchdown.
