Bills

The Bills have long passed the 7.5 wins that many oddsmakers projected as the team's win total, and that total started at 6.5 many places. With a week to go in the regular season, according to www.BetOnline.ag, the Bills are among 12 teams that went over their projected totals; 16 teams went under; and four are still pending. The Ravens and the 49ers were the biggest…

Analysis

The Bills (7-3) are again in their comfort zone, facing another team with a losing record in the Broncos (3-7). Buffalo’s wins have coming against teams that are currently 13-47 on the season, while its losses have been leveled by clubs that are 19-12. The Bills’ problem Sunday, though, is their 1-6 against the spread record as a non-division favorite when coming off a …

Analysis

Vic Carucci These teams have a whole lot in common, except for their records. Both have starting quarterbacks selected in the first round of last year’s draft. Both have long histories of disappointing their fans. Both entered this season giving those fans greater cause for hope than they’ve had in a long time. Granted, the Browns’ faithful had more of it after an offseas…

Analysis

We’re at the stage of the NFL season when good teams start to separate themselves from bad teams. Only in this case, the separation has already been made. If the NFL playoffs were to start this weekend, the Buffalo Bills would be one of the new kids on the block – actually not so new because the Bills made the 2017 postseason – as Buffalo would be the only AFC team that…

Bills

Oddsmakers aren't expecting many points when the Bills host the Washington Redskins on Sunday. The over/under total is 36.5, which is the lowest in the NFL this season and the lowest in the NFL since the Bills-Jacksonville Jaguars game last season. Assuming the total doesn't rise, the total will be less than the 37 combined points projected for the the Denver-Jackson…

Bills

The Miami Dolphins being favored over the Buffalo Bills by as many as 17 was among the storylines of the week. The Bills won the game, 31,-21, but did not cover. However, the one bettor who had the worst day with a wager on the game might be the one who bet $130,000 on the Bills' first-half money line with CG Technology, as reported by ESPN's David Purdum. The line w…

Bills

Since 1980, an underdog of 16.5 points or more has won the game outright four times. The Buffalo Bills have been involved in three of those games. The above statistic could come into play because the Bills are a 16.5-point favorite Sunday against the Miami Dolphins. The Bills were a 17-point underdog when they traveled to Minnesota and beat the Vikings, 27-6, on Sept…

Bills

The Bills open the week as a 16.5-point favorite against the visiting Miami Dolphins. Buffalo has been favored by 16 or more points six times since 1980, including four times in the 1992 season and a 20-point spread against Indianapolis in 1991. The last time the Bills were favored by 16.5 points was Dec. 6, 1992, against the New York Jets, a game the Bills lost, 24-…

Bills

Vic Carucci Of course, the Patriots are the obvious pick because going with the Bills means ignoring history. Well, count me among the few willing (crazy enough?) to turn my back on the past. I believe it makes sense to look at this matchup through a different lens, because I believe the Bills are better than their wobbly walk to 3-0 indicates, and I’m not convinced the P…

Bills

Let’s not concede the Patriots another Super Bowl title just yet. Yes, their stats are impeccable: No. 1 overall in scoring defense and the No. 2 scoring offense. They became the first team in the Super Bowl era to not allow a passing or rushing TD in its first three games. A muffed punt recovered in the end zone by the Jets snapped the Pats’ run of 86 consecutive point…

Bills

The New York Giants went ahead 7-0 on the Dallas Cowboys in Week 1 and then proceeded to limp to the finish line. One has to wonder how long before Daniel Jones will have his number called. This, however, is for certain: Eli Manning is 11-3  straight up and 10-2-2 against the spread in his career against AFC East opposition, including 7-0-1 against the spread as an underdo…
