Super Bowl 50 – Redskins Odds | Fireman Mike | Old Town Post

How likely is it that the Washington Redskins will win Super Bowl 50?  Vegas odds makers do not think there is a very good chance at all for the Redskins.  The latest odds have the Redskins at 100 to 1 or some at 125 to 1, which ranks them 3rd from last.  A $10 bet would get you $1000.  A nice return on your investment but are you willing to chance your $10?   The odds on favorites to win the Super Bowl at most sports books are the Seahawks (5-1), Packers (7-1), Colts (8-1), Patriots (17-2) and Cowboys (10-1).  The worst odds for winning the Super Bowl belong to the the Titans and Jaguars at 200-1.  Super Bowl 50 will be played February 7, 2016 and televised by CBS from Levi’s Stadium in Santa Clara, Calif.

How many games will the Washington Redskins win?  Oddsmakers have set the over/under for wins by the Redskins at 6.5. Last season was a dismal 4-12.  More wins or more losses for the 2015 season?

A very positive note for the Skins is that they signed Ryan Kerrigan to a massive contract extension.  His new five-year deal is worth $57.5 million, of which $24.28 million is guaranteed. This makes him the third highest paid linebacker in the league. Only the Chief’s  Justin Houston and Clay Matthews of Green Bay make more money as linebackers.

Are there any other Washinton players worthy of a hefty contract extension such as Kerrigan received?  It doesn’t seem likely but maybe this season will display some young break out talent.

A recent Harvard study, that utilized a wealth of convoluted statistics, has projected that Super Bowl 50 will feature the Miami Dolphins against the Seattle Seahawks. For a complete breakdown of all the teams and the stats involved you can click on the link to the article:  A Way-Too-Early Prediction of the NFL Season.  The Redskins playoff chances in that article were 22%.

The first regular season game brings the Dolphins to FedEx field.  Super Bowl VII pitted the Dolphins against the Redskins.  The Dolphins won that game 14-7.  We shall see if the Dolphins are a Super Bowl favorite and if the Redskins are truly out of the picture before the season even begins.  The Dolphins are favored by 2.5 points.  Redskins Nation season begins Sunday, September 13, 2015 at 1:00 p.m.
