Buffalo at New York
Sunday 10/12 04:15 PM Eastern
4 units on New York +2.5 (-110) (risk 4 to return 7.64) RESULT: WIN
Winless teams off a bye – gotta love ‘em! New York qualifies for several very high-percentage trends favoring dogs post-bye and a few other variables. After a week of rest and preparation (and watching several teams manhandle Buffalo), Herm Edwards and his team will win this game. This team is not as down as they could be at 0-4. They have faith in their head coach who turned around a similar situation last year to get into the playoffs. New York typically fares well in this matchup, having won the last four straight. Drew Bledsoe will probably be without his number one weapon – Eric Moulds and Peerless Price is not there to pick up the slack this year. Not a good omen for a team ranked 3rd worst in offense in the league (275 yards per game). Even without Moulds, the Bill’s strength is their passing game and NY matches up well there (3rd best in the league in pass defense). The Jets are 0-4 but they have played a tough schedule. Their opponents’ record to-date is 12-6 (67%). Buffalo isn’t that good. Take the Jets to win outright.
