Commanders Super Bowl 57 Odds

Commanders To Win Super Bowl (+11000)

The Commanders have come a long way under coach Ron Rivera but still remain a longshot to win Super Bowl 57. Washington is in the middle of the pack as far as Super Bowl odds but are far behind the favorites, including division rival Philadelphia.

Washington defeated Philadelphia at Lincoln Financial Field on Nov. 14 and have remained competitive without star defensive end Chase Young for much of the season. But the Commanders lifting the Lombardi Trophy is an extremely outcome, particularly given the loaded AFC, which the odds indicate.

Commanders NFC Championship Odds

Commanders To Win NFC Championship (+4800)

Washington to emerge as champs of the NFC is a more likely outcome since the conference is wide open and only the Eagles appear dominant.

With the way Taylor Heinicke has managed the Commanders offense since taking over for the injured Carson Wentz, and its stout defense, they have a puncher’s chance. Still, it’s an unlikely outcome given the team’s talent and the fact superior teams — Philadelphia, Dallas, Tampa Bay and others — loom in Washington’s path.

Commanders NFC East Winner Odds

Commanders To Win NFC East Championship (+17000)

It’s hard to believe Washington’s odds could actually be longer to win its division than win its division, particularly since the Commanders split the season series with the Eagles.

But the odds are that way because Washington sits in last place and has no more games against Philadelphia. Plus, the Eagles have a comfortable lead over the Commanders, along with the Cowboys and Giants, for the division lead.

Commanders Make Playoffs Odds

Commanders to Miss Playoffs (-184)

Washington has exceeded expectations, particularly after it started 1-4. But in its extremely talented division, and given the fact the Commanders have a hellacious schedule down the stretch, the most likely outcome is them finishing outside the tournament by regular season’s end even with Young likely to return.

Commanders Win Total Bets 2023

Commanders: Over 8.5 Wins (-110)

This number would’ve seemed impossible after the Commanders’ slow start, but 9-8 is the most likely finishing record for Washington at this point.

If you feel a 9-8 record will be enough to get the Commanders to the postseason then take them to qualify. I think they’ll fall just short.


How to Bet Commanders Moneylines

The simplest form of NFL bet is a moneyline wager. Betting on a Commanders moneyline means you’re backing Washington to win a specific game, and if it does, you win your bet.

Since not all matchups are created equal, the odds for this type of bet can vary based on each team’s implied probability of winning. Favorites are recognizable by a minus sign in front of their odds (-225), while underdogs are represented by a plus sign (+225).

The Commanders will be favored in a handful of games this season, but Washington will typically fall in the latter category. That does present a better betting opportunity, however, as wagering on a Commanders moneyline at (+225) odds would return $22.50 on a $10 bet.

How to Bet Commanders Spreads

Against the spread betting is the most efficient way to wager on NFL games, as it presents two evenly priced options, regardless of the potential talent differences between two rosters. The spread, which is given a value by the oddsmakers, represents the number of points that the favorite is expected to win by against the underdog.

If the Commanders are 3-point favorites at home over the rival Giants, the spread for that matchup would look like this: Commanders -3 (-110) vs Giants +3 (-110).

In this scenario, Washington would have to win by at least four points to cover the spread and pay out of your wager. If the Commanders win by exactly a field goal, you’d get your money back. If they fail to win by at least three points, then you would lose your bet.

Last season, Commanders spreads weren’t particularly profitable. Washington wasn’t always competitive in games, losing six by double digits. So far in 2022, with Heinicke at the helm and a solid defense, Washington has been far more competitive against the spread.

How to Bet Commanders Over/Unders

A third way of wagering on Washington games this season is by betting Commanders Over/Unders.

Each week, oddsmakers will set the moneyline, spread, and total, the latter of which is the number of points they expect both teams to combine to score. Interested parties can then bet on either the Over or the Under.

Commanders unders were a profitable venture in 2021, hitting at a 58.8% clip. So far in 2022, the under has been the more successful wager for Washington games thanks mostly to the club’s sterling defense and streaky offense.
