Betting on the Redskins?

The Redskins were contenders to win the NFC last season until QB Alex Smith suffered a season-ending injury. It went all downhill from there, and Washington’s woes continue into this season.

Though rookie quarterback Dwayne Haskins shows promise, he’s still green around the edges, and it has led to the Redskins being 0-2 in the preseason.

Meanwhile, Case Keenum is still in line to get the #1 QB spot, but because of his 18:15 TD to INT ratio last year, he might miss out on the opportunity. It makes these preseason games all the more critical for Keenum because if he doesn’t perform at his top, he’ll likely see a lot of bench time.

Betting on the Falcons?

The Falcons have not had a win yet despite getting an early start this year as they played in the annual Hall of Fame game. Atlanta lost the HOF 14-10 to the Broncos, then lost 34-27 to Miami, finally losing 22-10 to the Jets last week.

However, the Falcons aren’t down and out just yet, and it’s still the preseason so they can always pick themselves up, especially when Matt Ryan comes into the fold.

Ryan should see some more playing time in this game so things might start turning around for the Falcons once we get close to the regular season.
