Giants host Bills in NFL betting

The Giants and Bills have faced each other four times since 1996 and the home team has never won.

Oddsmakers installed host New York as a 3-point favorite against the surprising 4-1 Bills, who come in off a win over Philly. Both teams head for the bye week and both should be hungry for a victory to sustain some momentum.

The Giants look to rebound from a horrible home loss to Seattle when Charlie Whitehurst beat them up. Of concern, they are giving up almost 160 rushing yards per game over their past three games.

And please no chants of 'wide right' from Giants fans, harking back to the Super Bowl miss by Scott Norwood...
