While the Bills pulled a monumental upset in beating the Minnesota Vikings, the lesson to remember is that Vegas almost always finds a way to come out ahead.
The Bills were 16.5- to 17.5-point underdogs, depending on where the wager was made, and won 27-6 in that largest point-spread upset in the NFL in 23 years. The Vikings were an 18-1 to 20-1 money line favorite.
Noted Buffalo Bills fan and "CBS Evening News" anchor Jeff Glor saw this one coming from a mile away.
Glor, a Tonawanda native, predicted the Bills to beat the Minnesota Vikings during an appearance Sunday on the NFL Network.
Here is video of Glor's prediction:
The Bills upended the Vikings, 27-6.
Egad. The Buffalo Bills are sinking to new lows and sinking rapidly at that.
After allowing 78 points in a pair of lopsided season-opening losses, the Bills are 16-point underdogs Sunday in Minnesota. But before preparing to empty the trash, you should know that NFL non-division underdogs of 16 or more points are 14-6 ATS since 2001.
In addition, the Bills themselves…
The term “sell a bill of goods” means, of course, getting a fraudulent deal, whose etymology apparently comes from the 1920s, which also seems like the last time the team was without controversy.
Even during the Super Bowl years, many were arguing the Bills were the worst best team ever, like we got a participation trophy for playing in four straight.
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 …
Opening day in the National Football League is a glorious national holiday for both serious and casual fans, or at least it should be. It sure feels like it.
It’s like Fourth of July meets Christmas. Fireworks are expected and often blown off. Tailgates start earlier, and are expensive and expansive, like the best Independence Day blowouts. Family and friends of all age…
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.
While it appears the Nathan Peterman experiment (a 0.0 passer rating on 5-of-18 for 24 yards and two interceptions) is finally in the rearview mirror, the questi…
Nathan Peterman was named the Bills’ starting quarterback to the chagrin of some fans.
Nonetheless, the Bills were obviously not satisfied with a 300-yard offense when they jettisoned Tyrod Taylor to Cleveland and then traded up to land QB Josh Allen in the first round. Allen appears to be a work in progress, though, and with projected starting QB A.J.McCarron going dow…

Bills legend Bruce Smith will be helping tackle the Guinness World Record for largest vow renewal ceremony.
Smith will serve as the officiant for the event, scheduled for June 23 outside Seneca Niagara Resort & Casino.

Before he became the “Wizard of Westwood” and won 10 national championships coaching basketball at UCLA, John Wooden found inspiration from watching how another coaching legend, Frank Leahy, ran his Notre Dame football practice.
“I thought my basketball practices were well-organized and efficient. After observing Coach Leahy’s practice, I realized more work was needed,”…
A couple of Bills fans began their life of wedded bliss by stopping at New Era Field on Saturday to pose for pictures with their wedding party.
But they got a surprise when rookies Josh Allen and Harrison Phillips drove by and stopped to pose with the group.
There is a treasure trove of Bills goodness from the mask on one groomsmen to the "Go Bills" undies being worn…
The link between Bills third-round pick Harrison Phillips and super fan Ezra Castro, best known as "Pancho Billa," is continuing.
Castro, a longtime Bills fan from Texas, was invited onto the stage at the NFL Draft by Bills legends Andre Reed and Fred Jackson to help announce a Bills pick. That selection turned out to be Phillips, a defensive lineman from Stanford.
