The way these teams are going the only question for the Week 8 Monday Night Football matchup is how many points are the New England Patriots going to win by. Since opening the season 1-2, the Pats have rattled off four consecutive wins by scoring an average of over 39 points with impressive wins over up-and-comers Chicago and Kansas City in the last two. Things certainly don’t look good for the Bills, but they were bigger dogs in Week 3 and they beat the Vikings outright 27-6 when spotted a cool 16.5 points. If you think lighting can strike twice, Buffalo is available at +787 on the money line at BookMaker.eu.
Watch this Week 8 regular season matchup live on Monday, October 29, 2018, at 8:15 p.m. ET at New Era Field.

The Pats are hitting their stride and that’s bad news for the rest of the league. We saw the exact same scenario play out last season when the Pats rolled through the last three-quarters of the regular season and the playoffs to yet another Super Bowl appearance. Some of the names have changed, but the system continues to churn out the victories. One name that has been at the forefront for all of the Pats success is Brady, Tom Brady. And the Bills will be powerless to stop him, just like every other defense over the past four weeks.
If this game plays out the way I, and most everybody else, anticipates, it will be wise to hit Brady early on the live betting lines at BookMaker.eu. The GOAT has tossed 10 touchdown passes in the past four games and he’ll do damage in the first half against a Bills defense that looked like it was playing with only 10 men on the field last week. Andrew Luck threw four touchdown passes in 23 attempts and hitting Brady for the over on his scoring passes on a prop bet is a smart play.
With Sony Michel out of the lineup after sustaining an injury last week, the Pats will roll with James White, who has developed into an every down player. And that should bolster his stats on Monday night. Brady uses the short passing game as extended run plays, and that’s where White excels. His 45 receptions are good for 11th in the league and the second-most among all running backs. And his six touchdown grabs tie him for second in the NFL. White will be featured prominently and he should exceed his yards from scrimmage total on a prop bet. Throw down some coin on him scoring a touchdown, too.
The Bills pulled off the biggest upset in recent memory with their win in Minnesota earlier this season. They won’t have the guy who led the way as Josh Allen remains on the shelf with an elbow injury, taking any chance of another big upset off the table. Buffalo’s offense was bad with Allen at the helm and the group was putrid last week with Derek Anderson at the controls.
Anderson threw for 175 yards, was sacked twice and tossed three picks against one of the worst defenses in the NFL. He was signed just a few days before making his Bills debut, which might have had something to do with the performance. Buffalo failed to score a touchdown and the Bills are on a historic pace for offensive futility. They are averaging less than 12 points per game and they’ve been outscored by Todd Gurley.
The Pats aren’t the ‘85 Bears so there will be chances. Buffalo’s point total is going to be low, but I expect Anderson to be better after having some time to work with his new teammates. Behind Chris Ivory and LeSean McCoy, the Bills amassed 135 yards and 6.1 per carry against the Colts last week. Even a blind squirrel finds a nut every now and then and I believe the Bills will use the rare MNF platform to show they aren’t as bad as they’ve looked. And if the Pats get a big early lead they will let up, allowing the Bills to go over their point total on a prop bet at BookMaker.eu.
