Betting on the New England Patriots (+2.5)
Regular Season Record: 8-4
There’s no hotter team in the NFL right now than the Patriots, who are on a six-game win streak. The last time they were on the field, the Pats whipped the Tennessee Titans at home in Week 12, 36-13. Mac Jones has been steady under center for New England, which is seventh in the NFL with 28.0 points per game. Against the Titans, Jones went 23/32 for 310 passing yards and two touchdowns with zero interceptions. Wide receiver Kendrick Bourne caught both of Jones’ touchdown lobs, but it was Jakobi Myers who led the team in receiving yards with 98 on five receptions. Still, it’s the Patriots’ defense that has been the more impressive area of the team. New England is tops in the NFL with just 15.8 points allowed per game.
The Patriots, who have not surrendered more than 13 points in five of six games, are 6-0 against the spread in their last six outings.
Betting on the Buffalo Bills (-2.5)
Regular Season Record: 7-4
It’s been an up-and-down ride for the Bills of late. They have alternated wins with losses since their Week 5 win against the Kansas City Chiefs on the road. The last time they saw action, the Bills clobbered the New Orleans Saints at the Superdome in a dominant 31-6 victory, so at least they have momentum going for them. Moreover, Buffalo is well-rested. They played that Saints game on Thanksgiving Day and will be seeing action next on a Monday Night Football matchup against the Patriots. Josh Allen passed for four touchdowns and had two interceptions on 23/38 completions against the Saints, while Stefon Diggs had 74 receiving yards and a touchdown on seven receptions. Buffalo’s defense isn’t too shabby either. The Bills are allowing just 16.5 points per game and no. 1 overall with 2.3 takeaways per contest.
Buffalo enters Week 13 game against the Pats with a 4-0-1 record against the spread in their last five games versus AFC East teams.
The Bills win, 24-20.
