Buffalo at New England

Sunday 11/09 01:00 PM Eastern

4 units on Buffalo +4 (-115) (risk 4 to return 4)  RESULT: LOSS

It's funny how things change week-to-week in the NFL. After their win against the Chargers three weeks ago, there was talk about the Bills being Superbowl material at 5-1. But after two tough losses, fans are wondering if they will even make the playoffs. The Bills haven't changed - just the public image of them has. They are a better football team than the smoke-and-mirrors 5-3 Patriots. The Bills are better on both sides of the ball, and they have a better QB than the Patriots. Excuse my skepticism, but the Patriots' home wins against Denver, Kansas City and St. Louis don't impress me. The Pats blew out everyone last year. But this season, including games at home against the patsies mentioned above, New England has yet to win a game by double-digits! The other side of that coin is the Pats have been blown out themselves twice. So the margin for error with this team is very very slim, and their winning record very precarious. This Sunday they face a team that is better on both sides of the ball, and I think the wrong team is favored. Buffalo is in dire need of a win after dropping two straight. They are motivated to win for that reason, and because of New England's historic dominance. Coming off a home loss to a division rival, Dick Jauron is 12-2 ATS. He's also 22-7 ATS in November games. Take the Bills.
