I get the case to be made for either side here, but for right now I’m leaning towards the Commanders. Don’t get me wrong, I don’t love this number with Washington, but right now it certainly beats the alternative which is backing this horrendous Giants team without an NFL level quarterback. Washington’s offense has been consistent for the most part in recent weeks and Sam Howell’s becoming a legit quarterback before our very eyes. I look for the Commanders to win this one fairly comfortably. Give me Washington here.
