Commanders player props and futures
The top Maryland online sportsbooks allow you to wager on more than just money line bets, spreads bets, and totals bets for NFL games. In addition to in-game micro betting, you’ll also find a variety of player and team props and futures bets, as well. For example, here are some player proposition bets you might see available on the DraftKings mobile app or FanDuel Sportsbook Maryland:
- How many TD passes will Washington QB Carson Wentz throw?
- Will Washington DE Chase Young record more than 1.5 sacks?
- Will Washington TE Logan Thomas make more than 4.5 catches?
Chase Young is a homegrown talent with MVP-type skills. Born and raised in Maryland, he now dominates as a defensive end for Washington. After winning the NFL’s Defensive Rookie of the Year in 2020, he’s as much a contender for NFL MVP as any defensive player in the NFL.
The fact that he doesn’t play QB means the offseason odds on Young winning the MVP this upcoming season are around a whopping +12000, but that could and should change based on his performance already this season. You can keep up with the latest NFL MVP odds for the favorites and longshots like Chase Young in the feed above.
Props can also be found for team stats and accomplishments, like which team will have more passing yards or whether the Washington defense will record more than two sacks in the game.
For futures wagers, you might find season-long bets like the following at BetMGM Sportsbook Maryland:
- Washington regular-season win totals
- Washington’s odds to win the Super Bowl, conference, or division
- Players to win NFL MVP or other awards
The odds for most futures bets come out in the offseason. The Commanders betting odds may change throughout the year based on betting patterns, team and player performance, and roster moves. However, you lock in the odds on any futures bet at the time you place it. For the most part, the odds will be better the earlier you can get a bet down on football games.

History of the Washington Commanders
The Washington Commanders is one of the oldest and most storied franchises in the NFL.
Founded in 1932 as the Boston Braves, the team changed its nickname to the Redskins a year later, then moved to Washington, DC, in 1937.
In 2020, the team permanently retired its longtime nickname in favor of Washington Football Team. Following the 2021 season, the club rebranded itself as the Washington Commanders.
The franchise won two NFL Championships prior to the NFL-AFL merger in 1970. Since then, Washington has won three Super Bowl titles: 1982, 1987, and 1991. It has also claimed five NFC championships, though the team lost in Super Bowl games held in 1972 and 1983.
More than two dozen Washington players have been inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame, including:
- Sammy Baugh
- Darrell Green
- Chris Hanburger
- Sam Huff
- Sonny Jurgensen
- Bobby Mitchell
- Art Monk
- John Riggins
- Charley Taylor
Super Bowl-winning quarterbacks Joe Theismann, Doug Williams, and Mark Rypien, as well as Mark Moseley (the only kicker ever to win MVP), and defensive standout Dexter Manley head the list of notable Washington players who haven’t made the Pro Football Hall of Fame.
The team’s primary rivals are its NFC East opponents: the Dallas Cowboys, Philadelphia Eagles, and New York Giants. Washington won the NFC East in 2020 despite having a losing record of 7-9. They became the first team in NFL history to make the playoffs after starting a season 2-7. The team lost its Wild Card game, though, meaning Washington still seeks its first playoff game victory since 2005.
Owner Dan Snyder has been especially eager to get the team involved in sports betting, including lobbying lawmakers in both Virginia and Maryland. As the NFL and many of its franchises continue to explore sports betting partnerships, it is clear that Washington will remain involved in sports betting in the coming years.
Will the Commanders offer a betting app?
It appears certain the Washington Football Team intends to offer a sportsbook to Maryland sports fans. When that day might come, however, remains relatively uncertain.
With the expansion of sports betting in America, more professional teams have become involved in the burgeoning industry. And the Washington franchise has already made clear its interest in doing so as well. The Commanders have already partnered with one online sports betting operator, making the prospect of the team offering online betting in Maryland all the more likely.
Will FedExField have a legal Maryland sportsbook?
It’s coming. Maryland voters approved a referendum to authorize sports betting in November 2020. In April 2021, lawmakers passed a bill that legalized sports betting in the state. Maryland sports betting became legal starting July 1, 2021, and the state’s first seven online sportsbooks launched on Nov. 23, 2022.
The new law is unique insofar as it allows for an especially large number of sports betting licenses.
FedExField and its sportsbook partner, Fanatics, have received official approval for a sports betting license. So, how soon will a full-fledged retail sportsbook be available at the stadium? That remains to be seen.
The NFL initially did not permit teams to have betting windows or kiosks at their stadiums such as those found in typical sportsbooks. In 2020, the NFL began allowing stadiums in states where sports betting was legal to have “mobile betting lounges” inside the stadiums. Allegiant Stadium, home of the Las Vegas Raiders, was the first NFL venue to include such a betting lounge.
These lounges function as designated areas where bettors can place their wagers on their phones. There are just no actual betting windows or kiosks to bet in person.
In nearby Washington, DC, where sports betting is also legal, there is an actual retail sportsbook in Capital One Arena, home to the Washington Wizards of the NBA and the Washington Capitals of the NHL. But unless the NFL changes its rules, FedExField will host a mobile betting lounge similar to other NFL stadiums.
Which sportsbook will the Commanders work with?
In Jan. 2021, Washington partnered with FanDuel to obtain a joint sports betting license in Virginia. At the time it was the first instance of an NFL team landing a deal with an online sports betting operator.
Together, the team and FanDuel launched a VA sports betting app. Although the team plays its games in Maryland, its headquarters are in Ashburn, VA, and the team pays taxes in the state.
The Commanders and FanDuel have been working together for many years. Starting in 2014, the team first partnered with FanDuel to promote the site’s daily fantasy sports contests. The ongoing partnership means FanDuel could be involved in the team’s online sports betting presence in Maryland.
MGM Resorts has been a sponsor of the Washington franchise as well. Owner and operator of MGM National Harbor in Oxon Hill, BetMGM already has a deal with the Washington Nationals to operate a sportsbook at Nationals Park in Washington, DC.
It should also be noted the team has previously indicated its intention to partner with a minority-owned company for its sportsbook. The team additionally pledged to share revenue with Maryland business owners who have historically faced discrimination.
Such an intention aligns with Maryland’s sports betting law. The law includes the creation of a new Sports Wagering Application Review Commission charged with reviewing and approving license applicants. The commission will give special consideration to minority- and women-owned businesses during the license application process.
In any event, it will be up to the Commanders to decide how it wishes to proceed with an online sportsbook in Maryland. As with their arrangement with FanDuel in Virginia, the team gets to make that decision without the NFL’s involvement.
