Bills Aim to Remain Unbeaten at Home in Week 8 Clash with Raiders

jones_bills

The Buffalo Bills will be looking to end a five-game ATS slide against Oakland when they host the Raiders on Sunday in an NFL Week 8 matchup at New Era Field. The Bills remained perfect at home this season with last week’s 30-27 win over Tampa Bay as 3-point favorites while the Raiders halted a four-game slide with a stunning 31-30 upset of the Kansas City Chiefs as 3-point home underdogs.

Shark Bites
  • The total has gone OVER in the Raiders’ last five games against the Bills.
  • The Bills are 1-5-1 ATS in their last seven games at home in October.
  • The Raiders are 4-19 SU in their last 23 games on the East Coast.

The Bills surrendered their highest point total of the season in last week’s win over the Buccaneers, but remain among the NFL’s leaders on team defense with just 16.8 points per game surrendered to date, fueling a 3-1-2 ATS run. Buffalo has also performed well against visiting teams with losing records, going 9-2 SU in its past 11.

The Raiders rediscovered their offensive touch in last week’s win over the Chiefs after tallying just 13.25 ppg during a four-game SU and ATS slide. The road continues to be a problem for Oakland, which is 2-5 SU and ATS over its past seven, scoring just 13.7 ppg during that stretch. But the Raiders have won outright in three of four as road underdogs.

Oakland has also enjoyed regular success against the Bills, going 5-2 SU and 6-1 ATS in seven meetings since 1998, but those two SU defeats came in the Raiders’ past two visits to Western New York, including a 38-35 loss as 3.5-point underdogs in 2011.
