The Buffalo Bills are going to the playoffs, so they could use a game against a punching bag like the New York Jets as a form of preparation. However, the Jets have not looked like pushovers in recent weeks and will be determined to hurt the Bills’ chances in securing a better seed in the playoffs.

Betting on the New York Jets (6-9)
It was supposed to be the LeVeon Bell Revenge Game, but the Jets running back wasn’t able to put on a show last Sunday, albeit in a 16-10 home win over this former team, Pittsburgh Steelers. Bell rushed for 72 yards which he took 25 carries to get for an underwhelming 2.9 rushing yards per attempt. Instead, it was the defense that led the way for the Jets, as they forced three turnovers, including two interceptions. If the Jets were to give Buffalo a run for its money, it’s that kind of defense that would. When the Jets took on Buffalo for the first time this season back in Week 1, they picked off Josh Allen twice and also forced two fumbles — also by Allen — in a 17-16 home loss. The Jets are not going to the playoffs, but they are having some form of a groove of late, as they have won five of their last seven games.
The total has gone under in four of the Jets’ last five outings.
Betting on the Buffalo Bills (10-5)
The Bills failed to stop the New England Patriots from copping yet another AFC East title, as they lost to the defending Super Bowl champions last Saturday in Foxboro, 24-17. Quarterback Josh Allen was having success throwing the deep ball, but the Bills’ offense was not consistent in that aspect, which partly spelled their doom in that game. Allen went 13 for 26 for 208 passing yards and a touchdown. That includes a lone pass to wide receiver John Brown, who took the ball for a 53-yard touchdown. Brown has had some downs in recent games, but the Bills shouldn’t stop throwing at him, especially in the rematch with the Jets. In the Bills win over Buffalo, Brown went off for 123 receiving yards and a touchdown on seven carries and 10 targets. Running back Devin Singletary also had a good performance then, rushing for 70 yards on just four carries.
The Bills are 4-2 against the spread (ATS) in their last six games.
The Bills win, 21-17.
