Buffalo has struggled in recent divisional battles

thompson_bills

The Buffalo Bills are just 1-6 SU and ATS over their last seven games against AFC East opponents. The Bills will be at home this Sunday looking to stay in the postseason conversation with a win over the Miami Dolphins.

SHARK BITES
  • The Bills are 2-6 SU in their last eight games after a win.
  • The Dolphins are 2-7 SU in their last nine games against their division on the road.
  • The total has gone OVER in the Dolphins’ last four games against the Bills.  

Buffalo fought and clawed its way to an ugly 13-7 victory over Indianapolis in the midst of a snowstorm last Sunday. With Tyrod Taylor nursing a knee injury and Nathan Peterman knocked out of Sunday’s game with a concussion, the Bills’ quarterback situation is a jumbled mess heading into this week’s game. If both Taylor and Peterman are unable to go, Joe Webb will get the start against Miami.

In one of the biggest upsets of the season, the Dolphins knocked off the New England Patriots 27-20 with a fantastic defensive effort as 10.5-point home underdogs. After allowing 35.4 points per game over an 0-5 SU and 0-4-1 ATS slump through November, the Dolphins are suddenly 2-0 SU and ATS in December and have allowed only 14.5 points per game over that stretch. Overall, Miami is now 5-0 SU and ATS over its last five games played in December.

A 24-22 result in favor of the Bills was the prediction by the OddsShark handicapping pick engine earlier this week. View the computer score prediction and who will win the pick on the moneyline for all upcoming NFL matchups here.
