How To Bet Bills Lions – Bills End Preseason with No Wins

Posted by Tony Bryant on 8/29/2012 6:43:12 PM

Buffalo Bills @ Detroit Lions – Thursday August 30, 2012 7:00PM EST

The Buffalo Bills spent a lot of money on its defense in the offseason, but the online football betting world has learned that money does not always equal success. In all fairness to the Bills, its defense has improved since the addition of such star players as Mario Williams and Mark Anderson. The defensive secondary seems to have also picked up a boost from the addition of rookie cornerback Stephon Gilmore. The Bills linebackers appear to be more aggressive now that they know the line of scrimmage is secured by a bigger and better defensive line. So, in retrospect, maybe the Bills made some good investments on defense. Offense is a completely different story.

The online sports betting experts agree that the Bills will only go as far as its offense will take it. Before quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick signed his big contract last season, the Bills were 5-2. Ever since Fitzpatrick signed his big deal, the team has gone 1-11, including this year's preseason. The fans in Buffalo expect a winning team this season. But if Fitzpatrick cannot get his act together, then it could be another long season in the Great White North.

Why the Lions Will Win

The Detroit Lions have spent three years building this roster into a playoff powerhouse. The youth and enthusiasm does not end when you get past the starters. The second and third-string players in Detroit are just as hungry as the first string. That means that the Buffalo second and third-strings will have to play hard to keep pace in this game. The confidence the Lions are playing with is infectious and has affected the entire lineup. When this Lions team takes the field for this final preseason game, it will be ready to win.

Why the Bills Will Win

The Buffalo Bills traded for former Seattle Seahawks quarterback Tavaris Jackson and then cut quarterback Vince Young. Many in the NFL betting community do not see a move upward with these transactions, but the Bills are desperate for a decent backup quarterback. Jackson will get plenty of playing time in this game and that could mean good things for the Bills second and third-string offenses. With his experience as an NFL starter, Jackson could be the boost that the Bills backups need to succeed.

The Bottom Line

Detroit doesn't really care if it wins this game, but there are a lot of roster spots to be won on the Lions' roster. That means that the Detroit players on the field will have something to play for. The Bills' players are still struggling to learn the offense and get out of each others' way. This may wind up being no contest.

Pick: Detroit Lions
