Washington Commanders NFL Week 13 Betting Lines

Washington Commanders NFL Betting

While Washington Commanders PR continues to dig itself a grave, the product on the field has thankfully been able to take attention away over the last seven weeks with Ron Rivera getting the team back into playoff contention. Sunday’s 19-13 home win and cover against the Atlanta Falcons allowed for the Commandos to jump into the seven-team NFC playoff picture. As it stands heading into the Week 13 road tilt against the New York Giants, all four NFC East teams are currently playoff eligible. As slim the margins are right now, the loser of this game would find itself on the outside looking in. The stakes are high for this one with Washington looking to secure a fourth straight win and cover at the online sportsbook while at the same time take a third straight from their hated rival.

On Sunday, December 4, 2022, the Washington Commanders will hit the road to take on the division rival New York Giants in the first of two scheduled regular season clashes. Take this pivotal NFC East clash in live from MetLife Stadium on FOX at 1 p.m. ET.

NFL Week 13 Betting Odds

Washington Commanders -2.5

Washington Commanders Week 13 Matchup

Linemakers initially had Washington lined 1.5-point road favorites against the GMEN on the lookahead lines with the total set at 42. This marks the third time to date that linemakers have installed the Commanders road chalk. They covered each of the prior two instances in Chicago (12-7) and Houston (23-10) as -1 and -3 favorites respectively. Both games combined for easy unders and the betting market expects another low scorer to play out in this one with the total down to 40.5 by way of 90+ percent of the bets and money expecting points to be tough to come by. As for the point spread, NFL bettors look to be of the belief Washington’s win streak remains intact with the number to beat up to -2.5 due to 70 percent of the bets and 87 percent of the money going the way of the Commanders.

This looks to be another perfect spot for Washington’s rejuvenated running game to flex its muscles. In racking up 176 yards and 4.8 yards per carry on a poor Falcons run defense last week, the Commanders are now owners of the league’s 15th ranked rushing attack. It’s averaged over 160 yards per game over the last three weeks versus the Eagles, Texans, and Falcons. All three of those teams have run defenses ranked out amongst the bottom third of the league. That’s once again the case with New York who’s been ripped for just under 140 yards per game (No. 26) and 5.7 yards per carry when at home. With that, Brian Robinson Jr. and Antonio Gibson are once again figured to have large roles in OC Scott Turner’s plan of attack.

If not for a late end game drive that saw the Giants kick the back door in on Turkey Day, Brian Daboll’s offense would’ve failed to hit the 20-point plateau for the third time in the last four weeks. Washington’s defense could dominate this game with the multitude of injuries in the wide receiver corps and Saquon Barkley seemingly running out of steam after carrying the offense a bulk of the season. Washington has conceded an average of just 15.4 points since the switch flipped back in Week 6 at Chicago. A running back hasn’t surpassed 60 rushing yards against this unit since Week 8, and it’s only allowed 3.5 yards per carry to opposing quarterbacks. If Barkley and Daniel Jones are kept in check on the ground, it’s tough to envision NY getting much done through the air against Washington’s 10th ranked pass defense.

Washington Commanders Week 12 Recap

The box score of the 19-13 win over the Falcons was pretty even. Atlanta outgained Washington 332-314 with the teams playing even in the turnover battle (1-1). Both sides struggled to move the chains on third down with Atlanta 4/10 and Washington 5/12, but it was the Commanders holding the Falcons to a 50 percent success rate in the red zone that ultimately allowed the home team to pull out the win by margin. Though both running backs figured to show out, it was Robinson Jr. that ultimately stole the show turning his 18 overall carries into 105 scoreless yards and a 5.8 yard per carry average. Taylor Heinicke tossed two more touchdowns but also threw another interception which makes it one thrown in five of his six made starts; no bueno!

Washington does not bring much cache to the TV networks and will get limited feature exposure in 2022. The Commanders are at the Chicago Bears in a Thursday night Prime Video game in week six. And then, in week ten comes an ESPN Monday Night Football game at the Philadelphia Eagles.  There are two flex dates for the Commanders late in the season, but they are not likely to get bumped up to a feature game.

Founded in 1932 as the Boston Redskins, the franchise became the Washington Redskins in 1937. The Washington franchise has had great periods of glory and plenty of years of ineptitude.

Washington was a perennial contender and 2-time NFL champion from 1936 through 1945. Then, from 1946 through 1970, the Redskins never made the playoffs. But then head coach and general manager George Allen changed that with five playoff berths in six years from 1971 to 1976, including a 1972 NFC championship. The late Allen made the Pro Football Hall of Fame based largely on his work in Washington.

The man that made the Redskins into Super Bowl champions was another Hall of Fame coach, Joe Gibbs. From 1982 through 1991, the Redskins won three Super Bowl titles with one other Super Bowl appearance.

Since Danny Boy Snyder took ownership of the franchise in 1999, Washington has posted just six playoff appearances. Their last four postseason bids were wild card losses. Washington hasn’t been close to being a bona fide Super Bowl contender during his reign of error.

In 2020 Snyder dropped the team nickname “Redskins” in a desperate sacrifice on the altar of political correctness after allegations of sexual harassment being a systemic issue in his organization. Only a putrid NFC East Division allowed Washington to slip into the 2020 playoffs.

Subsequently, Snyder has been accused of cheating his fellow NFL owners out of their cut of FedEx Field gate receipts. With all of the trouble that Snyder has caused the league, one would think he would be a candidate for expulsion. Yet he is not, which leads to plenty of speculation about why that is.

The Redskins changed their name to the Commanders in 2022.
