Redskins Vs. Bills Odds: Washington Favored At -2.5

The Washington Redskins will open up their 2012 NFL preseason with a matchup on the road against the Buffalo Bills. The Redskins will debut first-round pick quarterback Robert Griffin III on Thursday and despite being on the road are currently opening as the favorite, listed at -2.5 according to OddsShark.

While to gamble on preseason games you'd either need to be an expert gambler or a degenerate, it's worth noting that last season for the first week of the preseason the favorite went 11-4 in covering the spread.

Ultimately wins and losses in the preseason don't matter, given the game usually comes down to who has the better quarterback depth in the matchup between the two teams, but Vegas thinks it's important enough to allow people to gamble on them.
