Washington Commanders NFL Week 3 Betting Lines

Washington Commanders NFL Betting Online

Who would’ve ever guessed the Washington Commanders would’ve played to two of the more exciting games of the young NFL betting season through a few weeks of play? This guy, that’s who! I recommended hitting the over of the Commandos 6.5-game season win total odds – at a plus-money return no less - at the online sportsbook before the regular season kicked off, and I can’t begin to express how psyched I am to see Ron Rivera’s troops 2-0 after churning out a pair of comeback wins against the NFL odds to kick it all off. However, a major litmus test awaits in Week 3 wagering action with Josh Allen and the Buffalo Bills set to invade Landover looking to score their first road win of the year. If Washington truly is a player in 2023-24, it won’t get embarrassed. If not, the NFL betting market will look like geniuses with the amount of early money that’s hammered the visiting Bills per early week wager reports.

Washington Commanders Week 3 Matchup

On Sunday, September 24, 2023, the Washington Commanders will host the Buffalo Bills from FedExField in Landover, MD. Kickoff time is set for 1 p.m. ET with television coverage on CBS. The NFL betting line for this non-conference matchup opened with Washington taking back 5.5-points and the total lined 46. Total bettors proved to be correct in expecting last week’s tilt with the Broncos to play to a high scorer with the over taking in 53 percent of the bets as well as 57 percent of the money. They look to be reversing course this week with a majority of the early action and handle forcing a 1.5-point line move south which finds this week’s impost against Buffalo currently clocking in at 44.5. The Commanders played to a low scorer in its home opener against Arizona moving the under to a perfect 6-0 versus the closing NFL odds the last six times it buckled up in front of the hometown faithful. It’s also a moneymaking 8-2 ATS the last ten times it went off the board dogged in front of its rabid fan base. The five times that proved to be the case last season, Washington went 2-3 SU and 3-1-1 ATS with a combined 36.2 points scored on average. They’ll take the field with a chip on their shoulder for this one knowing they’ve dropped the last two meetings against the Bills with Josh Allen under center by 18.5 points per game!

Washington Commanders Week 2 Recap

By way of a failed 2-point try at the end of regulation, the Commanders escaped the Mile High City with an awesome 35-33 outright win in tow. They did so by pulling off a remarkable comeback that found them trailing 21-3 at the outset of the second quarter. But instead of crawling back into its shell and going through the motions, Washington dug down deep and rattled off 18 straight points to knot the game up at 21 apiece 3+ minutes into the third quarter. Even after Denver reclaimed a field goal lead at the tail end of the third, the Commanders took their first lead of the contest at the outset of the fourth and never looked back. Though many would argue a PI penalty should’ve been called on the game-deciding play, you can’t take the comeback effort away from them! After failing to impress in his season debut, Sam Howell took the bull by the horns and played to a 108.8 QB rating by way of completing 27-of-39 passes for just short of 300 yards and a perfect 2:0 TD/INT ratio. Brian Robinson Jr. stole the show late however and ended up combining for 129 scrimmage yards while galloping into the end zone for a pair of fourth quarter scores. While the defense gave up a whopping 15.4 yards per completion and a trio of scoring strikes to Russell Wilson as well as 5.3 yards per carry, it held the Denver offense to a four of 12 showing on third down and thwarted half its four red zone penetrations. There’s still work to be done with this team for it to compete with the Cowboys and Eagles for division supremacy, but some solid ground work has been laid through the first two weeks of the regular season.

Founded in 1932 as the Boston Redskins, the franchise became the Washington Redskins in 1937. The Washington franchise has had great periods of glory and plenty of years of ineptitude.

Washington was a perennial contender and 2-time NFL champion from 1936 through 1945. Then, from 1946 through 1970, the Redskins never made the playoffs. But then head coach and general manager George Allen changed that with five playoff berths in six years from 1971 to 1976, including a 1972 NFC championship. The late Allen made the Pro Football Hall of Fame based largely on his work in Washington.

The man that made the Redskins into Super Bowl champions was another Hall of Fame coach, Joe Gibbs. From 1982 through 1991, the Redskins won three Super Bowl titles with one other Super Bowl appearance.

Since Danny Boy Snyder took ownership of the franchise in 1999, Washington has posted just six playoff appearances. Their last four postseason bids were wild card losses. Washington hasn’t been close to being a bona fide Super Bowl contender during his reign of error.

In 2020 Snyder dropped the team nickname “Redskins” in a desperate sacrifice on the altar of political correctness after allegations of sexual harassment being a systemic issue in his organization. Only a putrid NFC East Division allowed Washington to slip into the 2020 playoffs.

Subsequently, Snyder has been accused of cheating his fellow NFL owners out of their cut of FedEx Field gate receipts. With all of the trouble that Snyder has caused the league, one would think he would be a candidate for expulsion. Yet he is not, which leads to plenty of speculation about why that is.

The Redskins changed their name to the Commanders in 2022.
