Our pick for after Week 7

Washington Football Team +450 to win the NFC East

This choice is purely mathematical, as we have Washington at 2-5 with a 22% chance of winning football’s worst division. The Football Team have the fourth-easiest remaining schedule among all NFL teams and the easiest remaining schedule among NFC East teams (Philadelphia is in the middle of the pack).

The Football Team’s two wins are over divisional foes, which would come in handy should they either tie a game in the future or end up heads up with the Dallas Cowboys for the top spot.
