Bills Packers Betting – Bills Fall, But There Won’t Be A Blowout At Lambeau Field

Online betting players know that Green Bay is a tough team at home, which is why they’re double-digit favorites heading into this Sunday’s game against Buffalo. But the Packers have lost a major part of their offense, and the Bills have a solid defense, which will prevent Green Bay from covering the betting spread in this contest.

  • What: NFL betting
  • When: Sunday, September 19th, 1:00 PM ET
  • Where: Lambeau Field, Green Bay, WI
  • Pick: Buffalo Bills +13

What’s On The Line

The Bills (0-1) fought as hard as they could, but they fell 15-10 at home to Miami because of an offense that, quite frankly, is terrible. The Packers (1-0) almost let a 17-point fourth-quarter lead evaporate in a 27-24 win in Philadelphia, but more importantly, they lost their starting running back for the season.

Offensive Matchups: Bills Packers Betting

Buffalo mustered only 166 yards of offense, including 50 yards on the ground, and strangely, they held back rookie C.J. Spiller, who had 23 yards on just 12 touches. Trent Edwards was 18-of-34 for 139 yards and a touchdown in an efficient performance, but the Bills were never a threat to break out for a big play. We know Spiller is a rookie, but he is easily the best offensive weapon the Bills have, and they’re going to have to take his leash off soon if they want to score some points.

The Packers managed 299 yards offensively, which is nothing by their standings, and after an impressive preseason, Aaron Rodgers was 19-of-31 for 188 yards, two touchdowns and a pair of picks. The Eagles relentlessly blitzed the Packers, who showed that their offensive line still has a ways to go as Rodgers was sacked three times. The big loss came in the backfield as Ryan Grant is out for the season with a broken ankle, and now Brandon Jackson is getting his chance in his fourth season in Green Bay.

Betting Edge: Packers

Defensive Matchups: Bills Packers Betting

The Buffalo defense was the only reason for NFL betting players to give them a chance as they held the Dolphins to 296 yards. Cornerback Drayton Florence led the team with 10 tackles, including nine solo, and he showed he could be counted on as teams will throw at him more than they’ll test Terrance McGee on the other side. However, the Bills suffered a big loss as linebacker Paul Posluszny hurt his knee after amassing eight tackles.

The Packers did a good job holding the Eagles to 321 yards, considering Philadelphia was playing two quarterbacks. Linebacker Clay Matthews had seven tackles and a pair of sacks, but the Packers had some problems dealing with the dual-threat of Michael Vick. The Packers had five sacks against the Eagles, but they’ve got some spots to fill up front after losing a pair of linemen to injury, including one for the season that will hurt their depth.

Betting Edge: Draw

Notable Injuries: Bills Packers Betting

Posluszny (knee) will be out for a couple of weeks, while defensive back Cary Harris (hamstring) is questionable for this game as well.

Losing Grant (ankle) is a massive blow for the Packers, while defensive end Cullen Jenkins (hand) may be able to play with a cast. However, fellow lineman Justin Harrell (knee) is out for the year.

Betting Edge: Bills

Outlook and Pick: Bills Packers Betting

NFL betting odds aren’t giving the Bills any credit at all as they are 13-point underdogs at Lambeau Field, where they haven’t been since a 10-0 loss in 2002. The Packers are 1-5-1 ATS in seven meetings against the Bills, and we don’t have faith in them to cover in this game, although they should be able to pull out the win. The Bills have a good defense, especially in the secondary, and they’ll be able to keep Rodgers and company from going off. If they had a half-decent offense, they could scare for the win, but for now, take the Bills to keep the Packers from covering in your sports betting book.

Stan’s Pick: Buffalo Bills
