Although Washington Redskins fans did their best to temper their enthusiasm for Robert Griffin III heading into their season opener last weekend, they’ve earned the opportunity to gloat a little. Now with Week 2 approaching, NFL oddsmakers are struggling to guess what comes next for the new look franchise.

In his debut, Griffin III threw a pair of touchdowns with 320 total passing yards and a 73.1% completion rate. The dominant performance led his Redskins past the New Orleans Saints and directly up NFL moneyline.
Now with 35/1 odds of winning the Super Bowl, Washington is one of the league’s most intriguing bet options. Although it’s important not to forget Griffin III’s inexperience in Year 1, Washington’s looming matchup with the pedestrian St. Louis Rams could mark yet another coming out party for the reigning Heisman trophy winner.
With 200/1 odds on the NFL futures, the Rams are far from Super Bowl contenders. Even with three Matt Stafford interceptions in Week 1 they failed to squeeze past the Detroit Lions. This Sunday they’ll put it all on the line in an attempt to slow the possible 2012 Rookie of the Year in his encore performance.
Whether he will and to what extent RGIII follows up on his debut is anybody’s guess.
