1 unit on Buffalo +1 (-108) (risk 1 to return 1.93) RESULT: LOSS
The Jets are off a hard-hitting and physical game at home in a loss to the Bengals, and now face another physical, attacking defensive front. QB Ryan Fitzpatrick threw a pick in the loss and new RB Matt Forte had 4.4 yards per carry - good but not great. A bigger concern is the secondary, as veteran cornerback Darrelle Revis was slowed down by age and injuries last season in a disappointing campaign, then was torched by A.J. Green last week. He will have to deal with speedy Buffalo WR Sammy Watkins, who sat out the opener but will play here. Watkins reeled in 11 receptions for 136 yards as the Bills posted a 22-17 victory over the Jets in January as a +3 home dog for their fifth straight win in the series. RB LeSean McCoy also gashed the Jets that day for 112 yards rushing and five catches for 47 yards receiving. The talented Buffalo defense looked fine in the opener, holding the Ravens to 13 points in their backyard. The Bills are 9-4 ATS when following a straight-up loss, and 8-3 ATS after a spread loss. They've covered five straight against the rival Jets and the home team has covered six of the last eight meetings. Play the Buffalo Bills.
