2013 NFL Win / Loss Picks and Forecast for the Washington Redskins
Many of the top rated sportsbooks have already released future odds and win totals for the 2013 season. The Washington Redskins over / under for wins heading into this season is posted at 8, depending on your sports betting outlet. The Redskins are also listed at (+2800) to win Super Bowl XLVII and (+1200) to win the NFC Championship.
RG3 is looking like he will be ready to go for the start of the NFL season; however the Redskins would be smart to be cautious with the new face of the franchise. The off season for this team was relatively quiet as the Redskins were hindered by the trade for RG3 and a salary cap penalty.
They bolstered the secondary by drafting David Amerson out of NC State and Phillip Thomas out of Fresno State, but overall did not have an impressive draft day. The Redskins did not lose anyone that impacts the team on a high level in free agency and the return of Brian Orakpo on defense is sure to give this team a nudge in the right direction.

Washington Redskins Outlook: There are too many question marks for this team headed into this season. Can RG3 get healthy and stay healthy? Can Washington find an answer at right tackle to protect their young investment and will a defense that was 30th in passing yards allowed improve? Those question marks lead to a year that could result in under 8 wins, but we will not second guess RG3 and instead put the Redskins right at eight wins.
