Buffalo at New York

1 unit on Buffalo +3 (-130) (risk 1 to return 1.8) RESULT: WIN
Rex Ryan makes his return to MetLife Stadium after a 33-17 win against Miami and coming off a bye week. You can bet he has had this game circled since he left the Big Apple. Sammy Watkins caught eight passes for 168 yards and LeSean McCoy rushed for 112 yards and a touchdown before getting injured, but Karlos Williams stepped up and ran for 110 yards and two scores. Tyrod Taylor was 11-of-12 for 181 passing yards. Taylor is completing 72 percent of his passes this season and has been very efficient overall and great under pressure. New York was outgained 426-290 against Jacksonville, but still forced five turnovers in a 28-23 win. Ryan Fitzpatrick was 21-of-34 for 272 yards. The Jets are #11 in the league on offense and fourth on defense overall but they top the league in run defense. The Bills are ranked #20 offensively and #16 on defense. The Bills pass rush has been lacking with only 13 sacks. However, the Bills offense is the healthiest it has been all year and the defense allows only 3.9 yards per carry. Buffalo won both meetings last year 43-23 and 38-3. The Jets are 1-7 ATS their last eight games in November and the Bills are 4-1 ATS the last five meetings. The motivation factor is definitely on the side of Ryan and the Bills. Take the points and play the Bills tonight.
