The Washington Football Team and Buffalo Bills don’t have what you would call a storied rivalry.
In fact, after Washington defeated Buffalo Super Bowl XXVI to capture its third title in franchise history, the Bills have dominated the series by winning seven of the last eight matchups, including their most recent meeting in 2019.
Unfortunately for Washington, oddsmakers don’t love their chances to pull off the road upset on Sunday, as they’re 7.5-point underdogs. That’s not the kind of spread you would expect in a game featuring teams with the same record, but here we are.
Speaking of betting, though, we can only imagine that fans are itching to pocket some extra money wagering on the Football Team. With that in mind, let’s delve into some intriguing prop bets you should consider making on Sunday.

3 best prop bets for Washington vs Buffalo
3. Josh Allen anytime TD scorer (+165)
It pains us to include any bet that would go against Washington if it hits, but we simply can’t ignore what we saw in Week 2 when they allowed Daniel Jones to do his best prime Michael Vick impersonation.
For the game, Jones took nine carries for 95 yards (10.6 average) and a touchdown. That’s inexcusable for Washington vs a quarterback who, despite being extremely athletic, falls under the pass-first category.
Whether it was a designed run or Jones improvising on a broken play, Washington had zero answers when the Giants QB took off with his legs. Assuming Buffalo watched film from that game, they should call a handful of zone reads for Josh Allen, who is much more lethal in the open field.
Allen only trailed Cam Newton and Kyle Murray for the league lead in rushing touchdowns amongst QBs last season and the Bills superstar surprisingly doesn’t have any to his name through two games in 2021.
We, unfortunately, expect that to change on Sunday. Allen currently has +165 odds to score a touchdown at any point in the game (bet $100 to win $165). Those odds are too good to pass up given the WFT was just carved up by Jones.
