The Bills are locked into the fifth seed no matter the result.
These two division rivals opened the season against each other at MetLife Stadium in which Buffalo prevailed, 17-16, in a game in which the Bills dominated the stats (370-223) despite losing the turnovers 4-1. It was one of a dozen games in which the Jets were limited to less than 400 yards this season.
Buffalo’s 7-1 straight up and against the spread record in the last eight home games, and its 24-8 straight up and against the spread record at home in games after taking on New England, including 14-1 SU and 13-2 ATS against losing foes, sets the table.
And remember, NFL home teams in season finales headed to the postseason are an eye-opening 146-90-6 ATS since 1980. The Jets’ 1-10 ATS away record versus .500 or greater conference opponents cements it.
Prediction: BUFFALO over Jets by 10.
