Betting on the Buffalo Bills (-3)
Regular Season Record: 0-1
Expected to take a huge leap in 2021, the Bills got tripped up out of the gate in Week 1 by the Pittsburgh Steelers. The Bills lost to Ben Roethlisberger and company to the tune of a 23-16 score at home, and that’s despite Buffalo taking a 10-point lead into the half. Josh Allen passed for 270 yards and just a touchdown on 30/51 completions, while Devin Singletary led the ground attack with 72 rushing yards on 11 carries. Perhaps the Bills will feed Singletary with more touches in Week 2, considering how efficient he was with the rock against Pittsburgh plus the fact that Miami just allowed the New England Patriots to run all over its defense last Sunday. The Patriots rushed for 125 yards on 25 carries against the Dolphins. Still, Buffalo fans would love to see Allen have more success finding his receivers this time around. Stefon Diggs caught nine passes on 14 targets for 69 yards in Week 1, while Gabriel Davis scored the lone receiving touchdown for the Bills. The defense needs to step up as well for Buffalo after coming up with zero turnovers forced against Pittsburgh.
The Bills are 4-1 against the spread in their last five road games.
Betting on the Miami Dolphins (+3)
Regular Season Record: 1-0
Tua Tagovailoa did just enough to lead the Dolphins to a 17-16 win on the road last Sunday against the Patriots. He went 16/27 for 202 passing yards and a touchdown while giving up an interception. His rapport with wide receiver DeVante Parker and rookie wideout Jaylen Waddle was noticeable in that game. Both Parker and Waddel will be a handful for Buffalo’s secondary that allowed several crucial plays by Steelers wide receivers. However, the former Alabama Crimson Tide quarterback needs more polishing, and until he gets there, the Dolphins’ defense will have to be as good as it is right now. Against the Pats, Miami’s defense had two interceptions, two sacks, and a pair of fumble recoveries. Xavien Howard is a scary playmaker, and has the kind of disruptiveness that could cause all sorts of trouble for Buffalo’s attack. Byron Jones and Jason McCourty each had a pass defended in Week 1. Even though Miami did not record a sack against New England, the team had nine QB hits.
The Dolphins are 6-09 against the spread in their last six home games.
The Bills win, 24-19.
