It’s no secret that Quinton Mayo loves the Washington Football Team, which takes on the Buffalo Bills in Week 3. But Mayo isn’t betting on Washington to win, as he explained on BetMGM Tonight.
“My heart is big for the Washington Football Team, of course, and this game I looked at on the schedule … one thing I wanted to say was ‘9-point underdogs, Washington and Buffalo? I’m all over that.’ And then I suddenly realized that the defense sucks," Mayo said.
“I do not trust in the Washington Football Team defense on the road against the Buffalo Bills,” he continued. “The play for me is the over. The total right now at BetMGM is 45.5.
“Buffalo’s defense has come around a little bit, but I think that Josh Allen will be able to take advantage of this Washington Football Team defense," he added. "I think they’ll be able to score at least 24, 28 points.”
There is a positive Mayo sees for his beloved team this week, and that is the aggressiveness of Taylor Heinicke against the Bills.
“I think Taylor Heinicke, one thing that he is going to do is take shots, take chances, he’s going to go out, he’s going to play the position fast. That’s kind of his thing,” Mayo said. “I think some points will be scored. I think Buffalo’s defense still has to step up in a lot of areas."
