Betting on the Buffalo Bills (odds)
Regular Season Record: 4-0
Four weeks into the season and the Bills have yet to get a dent on their record. They improved to 4-0 this year after taking down the Las Vegas Raiders on the road in Week 4, 30-23, behind the passing of Josh Allen and the rejuvenated Bills defense. Allen passed for 288 yards and two touchdowns on 23-of-34 completions and worked wonders on offense with stud wide receiver Stefon Diggs, who had 115 receiving yards on six receptions and seven targets. Buffalo is currently second in the NFL with 316.2 passing yards per game and 11th in red-zone touchdown percentage, and those numbers are not a good sight for Tennessee’s defense that’s been groping for form this season. In fact, the Titans are 28th in the league with 422.3 total yards allowed per game. If Allen drives the Bills into the red zone, they could feast against Tennessee’s red-zone defense that allows a touchdown 80 percent of the time.
The Bills are 3-1 against the spread in their last four games overall.
Betting on the Tennessee Titans (odds)
Regular Season Record: 3-0
With its players and staff ravaged by a slew of COVID-19 positive tests, the Titans were forced by the NFL to skip their Week 4 date with the Pittsburgh Steelers and postpone that game to a later date. If anything, that gives Tennessee a very long rest before taking on the Bills. In their most recent game, the Titans narrowly escaped with a 31-30 win in Minnesota. Derrick Henry led the team with 119 rushing yards and two scores on 26 carries, while the defense came up with three forced turnovers. Taking the ball away from Allen’s hand is a top priority for the Titans’ defense. After intercepting Kirk Cousins twice in the Minnesota game, the Titans’ defense looked rejuvenated but it got punished on the ground nevertheless, with the Vikings rushing for a total of 226 yards on 33 carries. However, Buffalo’s offense isn’t as run-heavy as the Vikings and it doesn’t have a running back who’s on the same level as Dalvin Cook, so the Titans could sag a bit back on defense to prevent the likes of John Brown and Diggs from getting easier looks downfield.
The over is 7-3 in the Titans’ last 10 home games, dating back to 2018.
The Bills win, 33-26.
