The Washington Football Team is still undecided on what their eventual team name will become, but for now, much more urgency is being placed behind getting a win under their collective belts following a disappointing 20-16 Week 1 loss to Los Angeles Chargers.
The same can be said for Washington’s NFC East opponent tonight, the New York Giants. They are coming off of an upset loss to the Cincinnati Bengals and are now looking to earn a victory on TNF against a Division rival that they defeated twice in 2020.
NFL betting sites across the USA are predicting that the Washington Football Team will beat the Giants by at least three points, with MyBookie offering the most forgivable point spread of 3.0 going either way.

There is some room in the NFL moneyline odds that pro football bettors can capture by becoming a member with more than one online sportsbook and shopping the lines.
Evidence of this is given in the table above, as the most profitable bets on the New York Giants are currently being offered at BetOnline with a moneyline of +159.
The same can be said for sports gamblers that want to bet on the Washington Football Team to win the game. Bovada’s -175 moneyline on Washington to beat the Giants is offering the best payouts for the dollar.
The winner of this game will be granted a precious victory which were not easy to attain for NFC East teams in 2020. The Philadephia Eagles man-handled the Atlanta Falcons in Week 1 in a contest where they generated 32 points and only allowed 6.
Now that both Washinton and New York are one game behind Philly, their NFC East destiny is on the line, even at this early Week 2 juncture of the season. It should also be noted that the Dallas Cowboys played very close to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, only losing by 2 points on the road to last year’s Super Bowl Champions.
For tonight’s two teams, becoming a prominent team in the odds produced for betting on the Super Bowl in the USA are the least of their concerns.
No matter what the means may be, both NFL franchises are simply desperate for a win, and pro football fans and bettors are likely in for a fiercely contested battle.
