2023 Washington Commanders Over/Under win total odds, predictions, picks

Updated Aug. 28, 2023 5:29 p.m. ET

With the NFL season set to begin, FOX Sports gambling experts and NFL writers are looking at the Over/Under for every team in the league. Check back daily to see predictions on where your team will finish the regular season!

September's presence, mere days away, and the air turning crisp can only mean one thing … NFL football is back, baby!

Now that sportsbooks have dropped Over/Under win totals for every team in the league, it's time to dive into the fun and look at the numbers from a betting perspective.

Can the Washington Commanders eclipse their win total of 6.5?


Here is how our FOX Sports talent sees the Commanders' season playing out.

Pick via FOX Sports NFC East Writer Ralph Vacchiano: Commanders Under 6.5 wins 

There is a lot to like about this team and what Ron Rivera is building in Washington, but it’s hard to overcome their question mark at quarterback. They love Sam Howell, but he’s still a 22-year-old, fifth-round pick with one NFL start, learning his second offense in two seasons. 

In a division filled with big-money quarterbacks and potentially big offenses, that puts a lot on his plate. Howell has good weapons around him and a strong defense, but there are also big questions about his offensive line. So this will be a year about progress and growth. It’s hard to count on a lot of wins.

Pick via FOX Sports Gambling Writer Patrick Everson: Commanders Over 6.5 wins 

The value on Commanders Under 6.5 wins has been depleted. Sharp bettors got on Under 6.5 at +110, even money and -110, to the extent that Under 6.5 is now at least a -125 favorite. Some sportsbooks are out to -135. 

So Under 6.5 isn’t a value play at this point — the best odds are long gone. And it’s understandable why the price has moved so much. 

Professional bettor Adam Chernoff rightly noted that Washington has a brutal schedule early and late in the season. Still, with the Under value dried up, I’ll follow sharp player Randy McKay’s advice and grudgingly take Over 6.5 (+115). But the Under won’t surprise me at all.
