Another seven-win season didn’t amount to another playoff berth for the Washington Commanders, who’ll enter the 2021 season with more motivation. Not only did Washington finally come up with a new and more respectable team name, but it also has a new starting quarterback at the helm and a returning defensive stud as a couple of dark horse picks to win the league’s Most Valuable Player of the Year award.
Nitrobetting is ready to equip its bettors with the latest news, NFL futures odds, and special features for the duration of the 2022 NFL offseason. This time, let’s speculate for a moment and predict a sleeper pick out of the Washington Commanders who could win the NFL MVP award this coming season, as well as the Commanders’ latest odds to win Super Bowl LVII.

New Orders from Washington’s Command Central
After giving Taylor Heinicke one more shot to defy expectations in 2021 and failing to do so, Washington decided that it was time for a change under center. And while some would say the signing of Carson Wentz was a half measure, the former second-overall pick is still a clear upgrade over Heinicke.
Wentz is currency a +10,000 sleeper candidate to win the MVP award and had a decent 2021 campaign with over 3,500 passing yards and 27 passing touchdowns to just seven interceptions. Sadly, however, the 29-year-old North Dakota State legend will likely be remembered for his choke job against the hapless Jacksonville Jaguars in the final game of the 2021 regular season. A new start in Landover should revitalize Wentz, who did have a solid bounce-back campaign after he was traded to Indy last year.
If Wentz appears like a risky proposition considering the competition for the best QB in the league, then perhaps literally young pass-rusher Chase Young is the right way to go instead. The 2020 NFL Defensive Rookie of the Year is currently a (+15,000) sleeper pick to win the MVP who shares the same odds as two of the league’s biggest defensive standouts in Aaron Donald and T.J. Watt. However, one must keep tabs on Young’s status for the opening week of the new season as he’s coming off a scary ACL tear 10 weeks into the previous season.
Updated Commanders’ Super Bowl 57 Odds
As of this writing, the Commanders are +6,600 longshots to win Super Bowl LVII, with only 10 NFL teams having worse odds than them to date. On the other hand, Washington is a decent +500 sleeper pick to win the NFC East with the team right behind the Dallas Cowboys (+115) and Philadelphia Eagles (+180), while also slightly ahead of the New York Giants (+800).
