Can Rookie Signal-Caller Peterman Reverse Bills’ Fortunes Under Center?

The Buffalo Bills and San Diego Chargers don’t collide often, which means football fans in Tinseltown will get a rare look at the Bills when the teams meet in Week 11. Both sides are coming off a pair of losses and will be looking to right the ship with the playoffs on the horizon.

Xbet opened the Bills as 4.5-point road underdogs with a total of 43.5.

Shark Bites
  • The Chargers are 7-0 SU in their last seven games at home after consecutive road games.
  • The Bills are 1-5 SU in their last six games on the West Coast.
  • The Chargers are 1-7 ATS in their last eight games at home in November.

Buffalo suffered its worst loss of the season in a 47-10 blowout at home at the hands of the New Orleans Saints. The Saints ran for 298 yards thanks to the valiant efforts of Mark Ingram and Alvin Kamara. We’ve seen the Bills start the year hot before only to fade away as it goes on, and a win over the Chargers in this one would prevent that from happening for now.

The Bills offense has been dreadful as the unit is ranked 28th in the league in total offense (292 yards per game), 30th in passing (180.4 yards per game) and 19th in scoring (20.4 points per game). As a result, Bills head coach Sean McDermott has benched starting quarterback Tyrod Taylor in favor of rookie signal-caller Nathan Peterman.

For some reason, the Chargers have a penchant for playing in close games but coming out on the wrong side. Last year, the squad suffered five losses of four points or less and this season they already have four setbacks of three points or less. The Bolts lost in a different fashion to the Jacksonville Jaguars in Week 10 in a 20-17 overtime showing in a game which they surely should have won.

The good news for Bills bettors is their ability to bounce back after dropping two straight. Buffalo is a sizzling 11-1 SU and 11-0-1 ATS in its last 12 after consecutive losses.
