Washington Redskins Team History

The Washington Redskins organization played its first game in 1932 as the Boston Braves but that moniker didn’t last long. The team changed its name to the Redskins just one year later and moved from Boston to the Washington DC area in 1937.

During their many decades in the NFL, the Redskins have won three Super Bowls, five conference championships, 14 division titles, and made 24 playoff appearances. The Redskins golden age was during the 1980s. The team won two Super Bowls in that decade and made the playoffs five times.

Right now the Redskin’s biggest rivals include the Dallas Cowboys, New York Giants, and Philadelphia Eagles. The most notable names in franchise history include Joe Theismann, Sammy Baugh, John Riggins, and Sean Taylor.

Tips for Betting on Washington Redskins in 2019

The Redskins are always a popular team when it comes to betting and that’s not expected to change in 2019. With an improved defense, new quarterback, and Jay Gruden coaching for his job, there will be no shortage of action in Maryland.

With QB Alex Smith under center last season, the Washington Redskins were 6-3 and in a great spot to make the playoffs. After Smith went down to a season-ending leg injury in week 11, however, the Skins went 1-6 the rest of the way and finished below .500 for the second straight season.

With Smith expected to miss the entire 2019 season, Washington made a big move and drafted QB Dwayne Haskins with the 15th overall pick.

Haskins, who is expected to be the week one starter in Washington, takes over an offense that didn’t score more than 16 points in any of its last five games. Washington’s defense was a bit better, finishing 17th in yards per game and 15th in points per game.

While Haskins is still a question mark it seems unlikely that this will be the season that the Redskins are able to win their first NFC East title since 2015.

The Cowboys and Eagles both made the playoffs last season and come into 2019 as legitimate Super Bowl contenders.The job security of Head Coach Jay Gruden will be an ongoing storyline as many believe he could be fired if he can’t get the Skins back to the playoffs.

In terms of betting on the Redskins this year, consider these key stats and trends:

  • The Redskins were above .500 vs. the spread last season, going 9-7-0, to finish the year with a 56.2 cover percentage.
  • The Redskins which 7-9-0 to the over/under in 2018 which was pretty close to the league average.
  • The Redskins’ divisional games come in bunches. To open the season, the Skins play at Eagles (week one), vs. Cowboys (week two), and at Giants (week four). To end the season, they play three consecutive divisional games: vs. Eagles (week 15), vs. Giants (week 16), and at Cowboys (week 17).
