Patriots vs. Bills NFL Game Preview

The Patriots and Bills met up twice throughout last season. Zack Moss had two rushing touchdowns in the first meeting to help lead Buffalo to a 24-21 win at home. Josh Allen had four passing touchdowns in the second game, including three to Stefon Diggs. The Bills were able to dominate on the road to earn a 38-9 win and sweep the season series.

These two teams have met up 122 times throughout their histories entering this game. New England leads the all-time series with a record of 76-45-1. The Bills have won their last two games against the Patriots, but had lost seven in a row before that. Buffalo will look to keep this winning streak going on Monday night.

New England looks a bit different after facing off against the Bills last season. Mac Jones is now starting at Quarterback, rather than Cam Newton. Josh Allen is still the starter for Buffalo. The Patriots’ defense is also much improved this season and will look to shut down the Bills offense. Buffalo will look to find a hole in the defense to grab a big win at home.

Opening Odds and Line Movement

The line for this matchup kicked off at -7 in favor of the Bills. The spread has dropped down to -2 ½ only a couple of days before kickoff.

The total for this one opened up at 48 points. The over/ under has dropped down to 41 points. The lower total makes sense with it being a divisional game and both defenses playing well on the season.

The spread has dropped for -7 to -2 ½ over the course of this line opening up. The seven point spread is a bit high, but I think it has dropped a bit low. Buffalo is looking to pick up their play and end New England’s winning streak in this one.

Free Bet and Game Prediction: Buffalo Bills -2 ½ (-123)

These two teams will meet in a heated divisional battle on Monday Night as both teams look for the division lead. Buffalo has struggled a bit as of late, but I think they can get going against this Patriots team. New England has been the hottest team in the NFL recently, but I think they will struggle against a well rested Bills team.

Mac Jones has put together a strong rookie season for the Patriots. Jones has passed for 2850 yards, 16 touchdowns and 8 interceptions. Josh Allen has also been playing well for Buffalo. Allen has thrown for 3071 yards, 25 touchdowns and 10 interceptions. He has also rushed for 383 yards and three touchdowns.

The Bills are slight favorites entering this matchup and I agree with this line. The Patriots have not lost a game on the road this season, but I do not think New England can keep this up. Buffalo is also coming off a game on Thursday rather than Sunday. As only slight favorites entering this game, I really like the value on the Bills.

The Bet
Buffalo Bills -2.5
-123
