It’s been quite a disappointing start for both teams this season. Heading into the year, both Washington and Denver believed they would be playoff contenders. Washington made the playoffs last year, but a 2-5 start has put them in real danger of falling out of the playoff picture before we even get to November.

Meanwhile, the Broncos have collapsed in the last four games despite a 3-0 start. Without franchise quarterbacks and with disappointing defenses, these teams are in real trouble. This isn’t quite a must-win game for each team, but it's close. Neither team can really afford to drop another game this early into the season if they want to make a late-season playoff push.

To get you ready for this NFC-AFC matchup, here is everything you need to know from an NFL betting perspective going into Week 8.

Check out the latest Broncos vs. Washington odds ahead of their matchup in Week 8.

Washington vs. Broncos Key Matchups

Broncos WR Jerry Jeudy vs. Washington CB William Jackson III: Jeudy is back in the lineup after missing several games due to an ankle injury. Look for Jackson, the best cover guy for Washington, to follow him in this matchup.

Broncos RT Bobby Massie vs. Washington DE Chase Young: Denver has a good offensive line, but Massie is the worst of the group. He will see a ton of Young on Sunday, which is bad news for the Broncos.

Washington WR Terry McLaurin vs. Broncos CB Patrick Surtain II: The rookie cornerback has been outstanding this season, but McLaurin is among the best receivers in the league. It could be a long day for the young defensive back in this matchup.

Washington vs Broncos Player Props

Broncos QB Teddy Bridgewater Over 246.5 Passing Yards

Odds: -115 at DraftKings ➜

With Jerry Jeudy back in the lineup, look for Bridgewater to attack one of the league's worst secondaries early and often

Broncos RB Javonte Williams Under 49.5 Rushing Yards

Odds: -115 at DraftKings ➜

Melvin Gordon is still the clear cut starter, and Williams is only a part time player in Denver.

Washington WR Terry McLaurin Over 66.5 Receiving Yards

Odds: -115 at DraftKings ➜

Denver has one of the league's most expensive secondaries, but they have struggled to contain No. 1 receivers. McLaurin should have a big day.

Washington vs. Broncos Moneyline

Both Washington and Denver have been extremely disappointing this season, but the last four games have been especially rough for the Broncos. They scored a combined 40 points against the Ravens, Steelers and Browns and most of those points came late in the fourth quarter. The offense is broken and the defense isn’t as good as the talent suggests.

Considering the value, take Washington on the road to win at +140 on BetMGM as its offense can be a bit more explosive and it is more talented on defense.

Washington vs. Broncos Point Spread

If the moneyline proves to be too risky of a bet, don’t be afraid to bet on the point spread in this matchup. This is one of the few NFL spreads of the week that doesn’t make much sense as Washington is getting three points on the road.

Denver has been an awful home team lately, losing five of their last six games at Mile High. They just aren’t good enough to be giving away three points to anyone and this game does feel like a contest that will come down to the final possession and final kick.

Take Washington +3 (-110) on FanDuel ➜ to cover the spread in this matchup.

Washington vs. Broncos Totals

These two teams pride themselves in being defensive teams who can shut opponents down on offense. However, that hasn’t been the case at all this season as Washington has the league’s worst scoring defense. They have played some great quarterbacks, including Patrick Mahomes and Aaron Rodgers in back-to-back games, but the secondary remains a big problem. Each team should be able to score multiple touchdowns in this game and reach 20+ points.

For that reason, take the Over 43 (-110) at BetRivers ➜ and expect a 24-21 type of game in Denver. Be sure to shop around for the best odds at your favorite betting apps and sportsbooks as this line is different depending on where you bet.
