Buffalo Bills 2010 Odds

The Buffalo Bills haven’t reached the playoffs in over a decade – not since Doug Flutie and Rob Johnson were competing for the starting quarterback job.

Unfortunately for the faithful Bills fans, despite all their suffering, they may not have hit rock bottom yet. Looking up and down their roster, it’s hard not to see the 2010 forecast as anything but bleak and their AFC East odds reflect these facts. Bills 2010 Odds to win Division: +2500 Regular Season Win Total: 5.5 (OV +120, UN -150) Bills 2010 Super Bowl Odds: 150 to 1

Not much went right for the Buffalo Bills in 2009. Their quarterbacking situation was a nightmare. It seemed Trent Edwards had taken one hit too many by the time the season started and he spent much of the season looking shocked and unwilling to hang in the pocket long enough to take shots downfield. A big reason why Edwards got popped so often and gave way to the equally awful Ryan Fitzpatrick: the Bills’ offensive line was atrocious. Not only did it struggle in pass protection, it couldn’t open up holes for Marshawn Lynch. A lone bright spot for the Bills was the shifty scatback Fred Jackson, who overcame the bad line to become the team’s top offensive weapon last year. However, he broke his hand last week and may miss the start of the regular season. The Bills drafted C.J. Spiller, a great talent, in the first round of the spring draft, but can he succeed as a rookie behind that line? On the defensive side of the ball, the Bills fielded an elite pass defense last year, but it didn’t matter because they were so atrocious against the run. Unless Andra Davis and Reggie Torbor are total revelations, the Bills’ problems should continue in that department. Based on personnel alone, 5.5 wins at BetUS.com seems like a lofty total for the Bills. Factoring in their schedule, it’s even more of a pipe dream. Buffalo, like the other AFC East teams, has to battle the AFC North and NFC North, both of which are full of very tough teams. If you’re betting on Buffalo to do anything besides lose in 2010, you must be a Bills fan.
