The Minnesota Vikings have opened as a 16.5-point favorite over the visiting Buffalo Bills for Week 3 in lines posted at the Westgate SuperBook. The Mirage also has a 16.5-point spread. The over-under opened at 38.5 but had moved up to 40.5 as the night wore on Sunday. But, that's not the largest margin the Bills have been an underdog, dating back to 1980, according …

The inept Bills had 33 yards and no first downs when they entered the locker room down 26-0 at the half against Baltimore in an eventual 47-3 loss – the worst season-opening defeat in Buffalo history last week.

CG Technology says it is the only sportsbook to release point spreads for all games from Week 1 to Week 16. Many sportsbooks have Week 1 odds. Virtually none of these l…
