Bills Return Home to Battle Slumping Jaguars

McCoy Bills

The Buffalo Bills will be desperate for a win to preserve their faint playoff hopes as they kick off a stretch of four home games in five weeks with an NFL Week 12 matchup against the free-falling Jacksonville Jaguars at New Era Field.

Shark Bites
  • The Bills are 6-20-2 ATS in their last 28 games after winning as an underdog.
  • The total has gone OVER in five of the Bills' last six games.
  • The Jaguars are 6-2 ATS in their last eight games on the road after failing to cover in their most recent road game.

The 5-5 Bills halted a three-game winless streak, both straight up and against the spread, with last week's 16-12 win over the Cincinnati Bengals as 2.5-point road underdogs. Buffalo returns home pegged as a betting favorite for the first time in four games, and will be looking to build on a solid 4-1 SU and ATS run as home chalk.

The 2-8 Jaguars continued their downward spiral last weekend, dropping a 26-19 decision to the Detroit Lions as 5.5-point road underdogs, extending their current SU slide to five games, 1-4 ATS. Jacksonville is winless in 10 as a road underdog of seven or more points, but has covered in four of its past five.

The Jaguars hold a slight edge over Buffalo in recent matchups, winning outright in five of their past nine, including two of four in Western New York. The visiting club has held the edge at the sportsbook, going 4-1 ATS over the past five. These two teams have combined for an average of  56.5 points per game over the past four, pushing the point total OVER in each.
