Betting on the Washington Football Team (+1)
Regular Season Record: 1-2
After pulling off a thrilling win over the New York Giants at home in Week 2, the Washington Football Team got hit by a truck in the form of Josh Allen and the Buffalo Bills. Washington lost to Buffalo on the road over the weekend, 43-21. That was a very talented and stacked Bills team, though, unlike the team they’ll be facing this coming Sunday. Speaking of talent, Washington running back Antonio Gibson once again flashed his explosiveness by turning a catch into a 73-yard touchdown against Buffalo. Gibson can be a game-changer of sorts with his ability to embarrass defenses in either rushing or passing plays. Gibson and wide receiver Terry McLaurin are always a threat to pull rabbits out of the hat with big-gain plays, so watch out for them to keep on its toes Atlanta’s defense that’s the third-worst in the NFL with 31.3 points allowed per game.
Washington is 4-1 against the spread in its last five games as the road underdog.
Betting on the Atlanta Falcons (-1)
Regular Season Record: 1-2
The Falcons flew victoriously for the first time this season after they downed the New York Giants on the road last Sunday, 17-14. Sometimes, a team just needs a win to spark a streak, and that’s what Atlanta is hoping its victory in East Rutherford would be for the team, as it heads hosts the Football Team in Week 4. Matt Ryan passed for 243 yards and two touchdowns without an interception on 27/36 completions against the Giants, while running back Cordarelle Patterson led the receiving corps with 82 receiving yards on six catches. While it’s nice to see Patterson doing damage in the passing attack, the Falcons need to get rookie tight end Kyle Pitts to get going. Pitts only had three targets against New York, Bills tight end Dawson Knox posted 49 receiving yards and a touchdown on 4/5 catches in Week 3 against Washington, so that’s an encouraging sign for Pitts, who has what it takes to take Atlanta’s offense into the next level.
The Falcons are 8-2 against the spread in their last 10 games against a team with a sub-.500 record.
The Falcons win, 25-22.
