Washington vs. Buffalo Player Prop Bets – NFL, Week 3 (2021)

| September 24, 2021 12:57 pm PDT

If you planned to back Washington to cover the spread on Sunday and haven’t locked it in, I’m afraid you missed the boat. The Football Team was lurking at +10 at late as Wednesday morning. Fast forward to Friday, and Ron Rivera’s group is just +7.5.

Although the value behind backing WFT is gone, there are other ways to capitalize on this game. There are tons of Washington vs. Bills prop bets that you can get your hands on now.

Here’s a look at five of the props that caused me to raise an eyebrow.

Devin Singletary Under 67.5 Rushing + Receiving Yards (-120)

Devin Singletary totaled 80 yards from scrimmage in week 1 and 91 yards from scrimmage in week 2. Worth noting, Zach Moss didn’t play in week 1, and the Bills blew out the Dolphins (35-0) in week 2.

Looking ahead, Zach Moss is expected to have a sincere role in week 3, and I expect this game to be much more closely contested. The Football Team’s defense has playmakers at every level – none of this bodes well for Devin Singletary.

Through the first two weeks, Washington’s defense has yielded just five running back targets. That equated to running backs catching four balls for a grand total of 16 yards. With Singletary’s production likely limited to what he does on the ground, I’m jumping on the under here.

Interestingly, Singletary’s rushing prop is 48.5 yards, and his receiving prop is 15.5 yards. A little math tells me even the best NFL betting apps are projecting for under 67.5 yards.

Dyami Brown Over 2.5 Receptions (-120)

We weren’t exactly sure how much Dyami Brown would play from the get-go, but now we know. The rookie wideout out of UNC has been on the field for 113 out of Washington’s 126 offensive snaps. Curtis Samuel is out at least another week – that means another heavy dose of Brown on the outside.

Dyami got off to a slow start in week 1, but by the end of week 2, his rapport with Taylor Heinicke had already grown tenfold.

Dyami Brown’s First Two NFL Games
Game Targets Catches Receiving Yards
Week 1 vs. Chargers 4 1 -2
Week 2 vs. Giants 6 3 34

After the Bills watch the film of Heinicke peppering Terry McLaurin with targets, Buffalo will be keen on making sure “Scary Terry doesn’t get loose. That means more looks for The Football Team’s bonafide #2 wide receiver.

Josh Allen Over 35.5 Pass Attempts (-105)

Searching for value within the Washington vs. Bills player props? Look no further than latching onto Josh Allen, attempting more than 35.5 passes with reduced juice attached. Washington’s defense is going to funnel things through the air; I would have anticipated this line being installed around 38-40 attempts.

Now for some related data to support my suggestion.

Allen ended 2020, attempting at least 35 passes in eight of his final nine games.

He chucked it 51 times in week 1 versus Pittsburgh. Even in a 35-point bludgeoning against Miami in week 2, Josh still found a way to attempt 33 passes.

The cherry on top is the fact that we can hammer the over laying just -105.

Logan Thomas Over 42.5 Receiving Yards (-115)

I was one of the many who were high on Logan Thomas entering the 2021 campaign. After playing in 100% of Washington’s offensive snaps in week 1 and week 2, I feel even better about my preseason premonition.

Thomas’ moderate yardage totals thus far (30 in week 1, 45 in week 2) aren’t the most compelling, but he’s only played a total of two games with Taylor Heinicke operating as the full-time QB.

In the first one (last season’s playoff game vs. Buccaneers), Logan reeled in five of nine targets for 74 yards. In the second one (week 2 vs. Giants), Thomas caught five of seven targets for 45 yards.

If he’s going to get at least seven targets and catch at least five balls, I LOVE his chances of surpassing 42.5 receiving yards.

My Top Washington vs. Bills Player Prop Bet For Week 3

  • Cole Beasley Over 4.5 Receptions (-105)

This is my top choice out of all the Washington vs. Buffalo player props. In fact, it’s a total green-light special that you should seriously consider.

Cole Beasley has caught 12 of 17 targets through the first two games; that’s one way to look at it. Another is to focus on how Washington defends.

Looking at The Football Team’s first two games, check out what the opposing “slot receiver” has done.

  • Week 1 – Keenan Allen, 9 catches for 100 yards on 13 targets
  • Week 2 – Sterling Shepard, 9 catches for 94 yards on 10 targets

Beasley is engrained as the Bills slot receiver and is often utilized as Josh Allen’s safety blanket. Frankly, I wouldn’t be surprised if Cole catches four or five balls in the first half alone.

Those itching to pull the trigger on this game’s spread or total, here’s an in-depth preview of the matchup.
