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…

Bills

It’s been a long time (2006) since the Bills opened the season with their first two games on the road – and oddly, both will be in the same stadium, with Week 1 against the Jets and Week 2 against the Giants. Buffalo also could take part in up to six 2018 first-round quarterback battles when Bills QB Josh Allen faces Baker Mayfield, Lamar Jackson and Sam Darnold (twice)…

The Bills have opened as a seven-point underdog to the Dallas Cowboys for their Thanksgiving Day game, according to the Westgate Las Vegas Super Book. The Superbook, one of the primary betting outlets, released opening lines for the most prominent games of the season on Sunday, including the Nov. 28 Thanksgiving games. The only other Bills game among the lines releas…

Analysis

Vic Carucci The Sabres aren’t the only local team trending upward. The fact it’s also happening with the Bills is not surprising, because, for one thing, they’ve reached the soft part of the schedule; the Dolphins are another in a line of mainly bad opponents in this stretch. For another, their offense has had enough time for some cohesion to develop within the offensiv…

Analysis

As unreal as it seems, this matchup of underachieving 3-7 performers actually pairs the league’s No. 2 and No. 3 overall defenses. That begs the question: Where is the offense? The slumping Jaguars took a 16-0 third-quarter lead against Pittsburgh last week and then took the rest of the day off in a 20-16 loss. Meanwhile, after failing to score more than 13 points in…

Analysis

Let’s get this ugly stat for dog lovers (that would be us) right out of the way: NFL road favorites of seven or more points coming off a road win that was preceded by three consecutive home wins are 14-1 straight up (SU) and 11-4 against the spread (ATS) since 1980, including 8-0 SUATS in division games. Gulp. But because we’re handicappers and not New England Patriots …

Analysis

VIC CARUCCI Could there be a worse time for one of the NFL’s best teams to come to town? The Buffalo Bills are a dumpster fire. Their offense is a joke and their defense has shown a capacity for being just as awful at any time. If their effort is anywhere near as lifeless as it was at Indianapolis last week, the result figures to be even more humiliating than that 32-po…

Bills

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. …
