Washington Football Team vs. Denver Broncos Odds & Game Pick (2021)

by October 29, 2021
Teddy Bridgewater

The good news for both of these teams is one of them will snap a multiple-game losing streak. I mean, possibly, there’s a chance at a tie, and with the luck of these two teams, I can’t take that out of the equation.

Overview

The 2020 NFC East winners do not look like they’ll be the first to repeat in the division since the 2003-2004 Philadelphia Eagles. Last week, they allowed Aaron Rodgers and the Packers to stay hot and get their sixth straight win. Both sides of the ball have not played well this year. The Washington offense is 22nd this season in points scored and has put up a total of just 23 points in the last two games. The defense that was supposed to have one of the best defensive lines in the league is struggling to keep offenses in check as they are 29th in total yards allowed and last in points given up.

The Denver Broncos almost had us fooled. With a 3-0 start, it looked like they had found their answer at quarterback in Teddy Bridgewater would compete with the three other AFC West teams who have their franchise quarterbacks. As we entered the week of Halloween, we’ve learned Denver gave us the treat first before the trick as they’re heading into the game losing four straight. Bridgewater hasn’t been awful, but his five interceptions in the last three games are not something to hang your hat on. Look at the defense on paper and would say it’s good as they’re ranked third in points allowed. There’s been a drastic change during the streak as they’ve allowed an averaged of 25.2 points over the last four games, as opposed to 26 total points in their first three games.

Trends

  • Denver has won 8 of its last 13 games with an Over/Under between 42-46 on Sundays.
  • The UNDER is 11-4-1 (73.3%) in Washington last 16 games on Sundays.
  • Washington is 6-8-1 in their last 15 games as an underdog.
  • The OVER is 10-10 in DEN’s last 20 games.

Bottom Line

The Broncos have been able to beat on the bad teams, and this is a Washington playing badly. The talent is there for the WFT, but they haven’t been able to put it together recently. Denver has lost some close games late while Washington hasn’t contended in any other their losses. The Broncos will win easily at home.

Pick: Broncos -3.5
