Last week we posted the betting line for the Redskins’ first 16 games of the 2012 season. Now Cantor Gaming, the same group that put out those spreads have come out with their over-under lines for the NFC in 2012. And as one might guess from the game by game lines, which had Washington favored in just four games and even in another, the Redskins’ number is on the low side.
Their number for the Redskins is 6.5 wins, a little better than last year’s 5 but a far cry from the .500 record or possible playoff contention that Redskins fans are hoping for.
And the opinion of the bookies is even worse than that. They expect a lot of action on the under so if you’re going to bet that side you will have to risk $130 to win $100. The casinos will give you even money on an over bet.
Three other NFC teams, the Vikings, Buccaneers, and Rams, have lower over-unders with six. In the NFC East, the Eagles’ number is 10, the Giants’ is 9.5 and the Cowboys’ is 8.5.
