The most favorable stat in the Bills favor is that quarterbacks in their first playoff game have struggled at home  over the last 15 years, going 7-14 straight up and and 6-15 against the spread. That is the status of Jacksonville's Blake Bortles. Then again quarterback in their first playoff game are just 4-13 straight up and 5-11-1 against the spread while on the road…

The combination of things work nicely in Buffalo’s favor again this week. The New England Patriots have a putrid 0-4 against the spread mark as home favorites in games following the Pittsburgh Steelers.

The good news for the Saints is their 6-0 record straight up and against the spread during their current six-game winning streak.

Buffalo enters 6-2 straight up and against the spread in the last eight games in this series, but 0-5 against t…
