A big Monday Night Football win has given the Washington Redskins new hope heading into Week 14, and the change of fortune has already impacted their NFL odds. With the victory over their rival New York Giants, the Skins put themselves in a position to contend for the NFC East Division. This Sunday, hoping to capitalize on the momentum, they’ll brace for a tough contest against the Baltimore Ravens.
Although no easy opponent – the Ravens do have 18/1 odds of winning the Super Bowl – after all, a victory over Baltimore could be just what Robert Griffin III and company need to sneak into the NFC playoff picture. Their current 50/1 odds on the NFL futures suggest that such a scenario is no guarantee, granted, but it’s the possibility that makes them one of the most intriguing bet options available.
Embroiled in their own division race, however, both fans and oddsmakers can expect a riled up Ravens team hungry to stave off the Pittsburgh Steelers and Cincinnati Bengals in the AFC North. That means RGIII and company can expect only the best.
With a number of division races already settled throughout the league, each and every game on the December schedule stands to be a must-win for those who haven’t yet stamped their tickets. Unfortunately for teams like Washington and Baltimore, this Sunday somebody must also lose.
