Tips For Betting On Bills Patriots – Bills Still Full of Surprises This Season
Buffalo Bills @ New England Patriots – Sunday November 11, 2012 1:00PM EST
The NFL betting experts are just about ready to put the final nail in the Buffalo Bills’ playoff coffin, but Buffalo may show signs of life in week 10 that many people are not expecting. In week nine, the Buffalo Bills were hopefully overmatched against the Houston Texans. Despite the odds being severely stacked against it, the Bills lost the game by a score of only 21-9. Had the Bills converted just a couple of the third downs opportunities it had and put one score in the endzone, then that game may have had a much different ending. The Patriots do not have a defense like the one the Texans have, and that is what could turn this game into a shootout.
The New England Patriots is 5-3 at this point in the season and not running away with the AFC East. The sports betting experts need to see a dominating performance by the Patriots over the Bills in week 10 before anyone will start thinking that the Patriots have a shot at making it to the AFC Championship game. The problem for New England is that it has a great offense that is trying to compensate for a very poor defense. It will not be long before the New England offense is unable to keep the team in games and the defense will have to step up. That would expose the biggest weakness the Patriots have and cause the Pats to fall way down on the Super Bowl favorites list.
Why the Bills Will Win
The frustrating thing for the Bills is that the team does not always need spectacular performances from the offense to win. The Buffalo defense actually did a commendable job against the Texans’ high-powered offense, but the Buffalo offense could not contribute to the effort. The betting experts know that the New England run defense is weak. Look for the Bills to use its potent running game to try and keep Tom Brady and the New England offense off the field.
Why the Patriots Will Win
At some point, Bill Belichick and the Patriots are going to have to address the problems the team is having on defense with some significant roster moves. For now, New England feels as though its offense is enough to compensate for any problems the team may have on defense. Against a Buffalo defense that has struggled all season long, the Patriots may be right.
The Bottom Line
The Bills and its fans want to see something that would indicate hope for the future and a win over the Patriots in New England would go a long way to raising Buffalo hopes. But the Bills lack the consistency on defense and the quality coaching that a team needs to beat the New England Patriots. This game will be close, but the Pats will come away with the win.
Pick: New England Patriots
