After disappointing Week 1 losses, both Washington and Buffalo got much needed Week 2 wins over division rivals. But which team can string together another strong performance to start the season off at 2-1?

Both of these teams won their respective divisions last year, but the competition in the NFC East and AFC East looks improved. These teams are going to need to play even better this season to repeat as division champs. To get you ready for this NFC-AFC matchup, here is everything you need to know from an NFL betting perspective going into Week 3.

Take a look at Washington vs Bills odds, injury report, betting lines and more.

Washington vs. Bills Key Matchups

Bills LT Dion Dawkins vs. Washington DE Chase Young: Dawkins has had a rough start to the year and it doesn’t get any easier against the 2020 DROY.

Bills WR Stefon Diggs vs. Washington CB William Jackson III: Jackson had a rough outing in Week 2 against Terry McLaurin, but can he bounce back against Diggs?

Washington TE Logan Thomas vs. Bills FS Micah Hyde: Buffalo has one of the best safety pairings in the NFL, but can they slow down Thomas across the middle? Thomas might lead WFT in targets in Week 3.


5 Washington vs. Bills Stats

1-4: Washington is 1-4 ATS in their last five games.

10 of 13: Buffalo has covered the spread in 10 of their last 13 games.

6: The Bills have covered the spread in six straight games against NFC opponents.

6 of 8: The total has gone under in 6 of the last 8 games for the Washington Football Team.

23: Buffalo’s defense has allowed just 23 total points through the first two weeks of the season.


Washington vs. Bills Player Props To Consider

Washington TE Logan Thomas, Over 41.5 Receiving Yards

Odds: -110 at DraftKings

Thomas has had a relatively slow start to the season, averaging just 38 yards per game. But he did see seven targets in Week 2 with Taylor Heinicke under center. Look for him to get more work on Sunday against a pass defense that can be exposed.

Bills RB Devin Singletary, Under 49.5 Rushing Yards

Odds: -110 at DraftKings

Washington’s run defense is one of the best in the NFL and we’ve seen Buffalo abandon the run in big games. Look for the Bills to use a committee approach in the backfield and for Singletary to see fewer than 10 carries.

Washington QB Taylor Heinicke, Over 240.5 Passing Yards

Odds: -115 at DraftKings

In three careers starts (including postseason), Heinicke has reached at least 270 yards in every game. He’s also completed over 26 passes in all three games, meaning that he is a decent bet to throw for a lot of yards every week. His over/under of 240.5 yards is off by at least 15 yards in this game.

Washington vs. Bills Moneyline

The Bills dominated in Week 2, which is what good teams need to do if they want to be viewed as a contender. Josh Allen still hasn’t played great yet, but this could be the game for him to get right. If the Bills can protect him against one of the best pass rushes in the league, he should be able to carve up Washington’s secondary.

However, the moneyline doesn’t offer great value here as Washington is certainly good enough to make this a game and steal one on the road. If their defense can create pressure, this will be a highly-contested game. Pass on the moneyline in favor of the point spread here.

Washington vs. Bills Point Spread

While the Bills have Super Bowl aspirations, there is still something about this offense that feels a bit off. It could be the offensive line, which really struggled in Week 1 against the Steelers. But they shouldn’t be this big of a favorite in Week 3 against another playoff team.

Washington’s defense should keep this game close and if the offense can put together a few long scoring drives, this will be anyone’s game. Expect Buffalo to win, but for it to stay within one score.

This is one of the few NFL spreads that feels a tad too big this week. Take Washington +8.5 (-105) on FanDuel . But be sure to shop around for the best price on your favorite sportsbooks as some sites have it as Buffalo -7.5 or -8.

Washington vs. Bills Totals

Buffalo’s defense has been outstanding this season as several of their young pass rushers have been able to get pressure on the quarterback. The Bills have also had some time to study and watch Taylor Heinicke, so they shouldn’t be too surprised at what he can and can’t do on Sunday.

Expect this to be a fairly low-scoring game with the winner scoring in the mid-20s. Take the under at 46 (-110) on DraftKings as this sets up to be a defensive struggle in Buffalo.

Again, be sure to check out your favorite betting apps as this total varies from 45 to 46 on different betting sites.
