Jets Bills Betting – Winless Bills Clash With Jets At Ralph Wilson Sunday Afternoon
On a cool October Sunday, the winless Buffalo Bills will host the first-place New York Jets this Sunday afternoon at Ralph Wilson Stadium. Both teams are right where they were projected to be heading into the fourth week of the season, New York, playing with a 2-1 record and atop the AFC East standings, while Buffalo is 0-3 and in the basement of the division. The Bills have a net points total of -40 this season, second worst in the AFC to the Jacksonville Jaguars. Meanwhile, the Jets have the best point differential in the division at plus 21, better than the New England Patriots and Miami Dolphins, who are both also 2-1.

Why To Bet On The Jets?
The Jets hold the tiebreaker in the division based on their 2-0 record against AFC East opponents after knocking off the Patriots and Dolphins in consecutive weeks. New York has a great opportunity to parlay that result into three straight wins when they play the worst team in the division, and it is difficult to project a scenario where the Jets don’t come out on top. Quarterback Mark Sanchez has avoided the sophomore jinx to date, and with LaDanian Tomlinson breaking off big runs like he did during his best days with the San Diego Chargers, there is no reason to believe that won’t continue. Sanchez has a plethora of options, both in the running game and the passing game, and as long as the line continues to hold up, so too will the offense. Nothing has changed on the other side of the ball, where head coach Rex Ryan’s units have the fifth-best scoring defense in the AFC, although they have played the Ravens, Patriots, and Dolphins in consecutive weeks, including a New England team that leads the league in scoring offense. With a stifling front-seven, New York will likely get pressure on Buffalo quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick early, and that should mean turnovers.
Why To Bet On The Bills?
After an 0-3 start, it is hard to find a reason to bet on the Bills, especially considering that they rank in the bottom-eight of the league on both sides of the ball, including the league’s worst offense. Buffalo was more aggressive with quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick under center and, although he threw two interceptions, the 27-yard old also completed over 60-percent of his football betting passes for 247 yards and two touchdowns, keeping it close against a talented Patriots’ team. A lot of the defenses struggles have been due to the offenses inability to control the ball for long stretches.
How The Game Will Play Out
Running back CJ Spiller scored the first touchdowns of his career against the Patriots in week three, a sign that the Bills’ offense is making progress under quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick. The problem is that despite the improvement, Buffalo will now face one of the toughest teams in the league, and are simply not prepared for this kind of challenge yet.
