The Washington Redskins 2009 NFL regular season win total odds had this team favored by -175 to win fewer than 8 ½ games, meaning the oddsmakers believe the Redskins will do no better than .500.  This is where they ended up last year:  At 8-8.

Gambling911.com looks for the Washington Redskins to be a slightly improved team compared to last year's with the addition of defensive tackle Albert Haynesworth (courtesy of the Tennessee Titans).  Unfortunately, the quarterback situation is looking a little too "iffy" with the Redskins failed attempt to acquire Jay Cutler from Denver.  Now they are stuck with Jason Campbell, whose contract is up by season's end. 

Essentially we see this as another .500 team even with the addition of Haynesworth.  The team came unravelled by season's end in 2008, winning just 2 of their last 8 games. 

They could actually get off to another strong start this year playing St. Louis and Tampa at home and Detroit on the road in 3 of their first 4 games. 

It's probably safe to say they will win at least 2 of their division games.  They host two more ‘beatable" teams:  The Broncos and Chiefs.  Washington also heads to Oakland.

Bottom line is that, unless Washington completely comes unravelled this season, they should be able to win 8 games easily.  There are two wildcards in that the Redskins could win 3 of their 6 division games (they won 3 last season) and San Diego is the final game of the season.  If the Chargers play up to the level we think they will, this last game in San Diego may not matter to them all that much. 

Conceivably the Skins could go 9-7 this season.  There is certainly enough talent on this team.  Washington Redskins 2009 NFL regular season win total odds were +125 on the OVER 8 ½ games for a payout potential of $125 on every $100 bet.

Why The OVER:

Redskins added Albert Haynesworth to make for one of the strongest defensive lines in the league.

Neither the team makeup or the coaching staff has changed much over last season.

8 of the games played are against teams that won 8 or fewer games last season.

Quarterback Jason Campbell is playing for a contract.  His quarterback ranking has improved with each season as well so it is difficult to see him playing at his worse in 2009. 

Plenty of talent if it can all come together. 

If all goes according to plan, the Chargers shouldn't have anything to play for come the final game of the season hosting the Redskins. 

Why The UNDER:

Neither the team makeup or the coaching staff has changed much over last season.  This isn't necessarily a good thing since they went 2-6 the final 8 games.

8 of the games played are against teams that won more than 8 games last season.  Washington has to win 9 games to make the OVER.

Quarterback situation needs to improve or they really won't have a shot. 

While Dallas may be perceived as losing some of its thunder heading into 2009 after huge expectations last season (where they were favored early on with the Patriots to win the Super Bowl), this division should remain tight.
