Bills Jets Odds: AFC East Clash
Suddenly the Buffalo Bills are the Buffalo Bills again, losing big and playing sloppily, to confuse everyone who watched them beat the Patriots and other top teams earlier this season.
Now they get the New York Jets, alleged Super Bowl contenders who have looked lame in losing their past two games as well. So what gives in this AFC East battle (if you want to call it a battle)?
The Bills are 4-1 ATS their past 5 trips here and they will look to avenge a loss three weeks ago at home to these same Jets.
Oddsmakers opened the Jets as 8.5-point favorites in the game, while the betting total was sitting at 43. But since then, one sportsbook has the Bills at +11. Check out 5Dimes. Only 46% of bettors were on the Bills in the Odds Shark consensus.
