Saints Redskins Odds Preview

The Washington Redskins make a trip to the Mercedes-Benz Superdome to take on the New Orleans Saints Sunday and they do so as heavy Week 1 road underdogs.

Robert Griffin III makes his highly anticipated NFL debut, but he’ll have his work cut out for him as a 9-point underdog at Bovada going up against Drew Brees and the high-octane Saints offense.

The total has gone OVER in each of New Orleans’ last five games and in five of Washington’s last seven.

Will Washington's OVER pattern continue with RG3 running the show? Historically, the Redskins are a Week 1 UNDER play (7-2 past 9 season openers).
