2. Washington over 24.5 points scored (+100)

If you’re reluctant to back Washington to score 25 or more points on Sunday, allow us to remind you that they posted 21 points against the Bills last weekend and the offense looked as toothless as we can remember.

Three touchdowns and two field goals (at the bare minimum) is hardly a tall ask given they’re going up against a bottom-barrel defense. Before allowing just 14 points to the Giants in Week 2, Atlanta surrendered a combined 90 points (!) to the Eagles and Buccaneers in the first two games of the season.

Fans have our permission to panic — seriously, it would be red alert time — if Washington’s offense doesn’t get back on track against the Falcons, but something tells us Heinicke and Co. will be up to the task.

We also wouldn’t rule out the possibility of a defensive touchdown. We get it, alright, Jack Del Rio’s group hasn’t been able to stop a nosebleed thus far, but it’s worth noting that Matt Ryan tossed two pick-six’s vs the Bucs.

Maybe it’s wishful thinking, but the Falcons are the type of team that beats themselves, so keep your eyes peeled for a defensive score.

That’s all we’re saying. Either way, the Washington Football Team shouldn’t have any trouble scoring 25 points on Sunday.
