The Buffalo Bills need a shot in the arm. They could get just that this week when they face off with the worst team in the NFL right now in the New York Jets, who are still searching for their first win. Will the Bills avoid becoming the Jets’ first victim? Or will the Jets add another loss to their record?
Betting Preview for the Buffalo Bills vs New York Jets Regular Season Week 7 Game on October 25, 2020
Where: MetLife Stadium, East Rutherford
When: Sunday, October 25, 2020, 1:00 PM ET
TV Broadcast: CBS
Betting on the Buffalo Bills (-13.5)
Regular Season Record: 4-2
The Bills have cooled off after a 4-0 start. They are now on a two-game skid following their losses to the Tennessee Titans (42-16) on the road in Week 5 and a 26-15 defeat at home to the reigning Super Bowl champions, Kansas City Chiefs, last Monday. But the Bills have the perfect cure to their malaise in front of them, and that’s a game against a dumpster on fire in the form of the winless Jets. Buffalo has already beaten the Jets this season. Josh Allen had 312 passing yards and two touchdowns with zero interceptions in Week 1’s 27-17 home win over New York. The Jets are arguably worse now than they were in that meeting, with running back Le’Veon Bell now escaping the team and Sam Darnold being replaced by a washed up Joe Flacco under center. In other words, the Bills should be able to take care of business on Sunday.
The Bills, who are averaging 26.0 points per game, have seen the total go over in all of their last five contests.
Betting on the New York Jets (+13.5)
Regular Season Record: 0-6
What’s happening in the Jets is embarrassing to the fanbase and the entire organization, but it appears that no degree of humiliation is enough for them to sack Adam Gase. In their last game, the Jets suffered an atrocious 24-0 road loss to the Miami Dolphins. Flacco truly had a hard time operating in the pocket, as he passed for just 186 yards and zero touchdowns with an interception on 21-of-44 completions. He was also sacked three times for a loss of 38 yards. Flacco is likely to start again with Darnold still dealing with a shoulder issue, plus there’s no need for the Jets to rush him back if their real motive is to tank the season away. That said, there should still be some fight in the players like veteran Frank Gore, who’s got no time for being part of a long-term tank job. Gore had 46 rushing yards on 11 carries in the loss to the Dolphins. One good thing for the Jets is that they are tied for third in the NFL with seven interceptions. Cornerback Pierre Desir, who had six total tackles against the Bills, lead the team with three picks.
The under is 3-1 in the Jets’ last four games overall.
The Bills win, 33-16.
