Buffalo Bills NFL Betting

We figured it would take an improved offense for the Buffalo Bills to contend for their first AFC East title in a quarter of a century. That’s why they went out and got Stefon Diggs to pair with Josh Allen. Both had big games in the opener leading the Bills to a 27-17 win over the Jets. The Bills stay inside the division this week travelling to Miami for a showdown with the Dolphins, who dropped their opener, 21-11, to the Patriots. The Bills have won three straight and five of the last six over the Fins, going 4-2 ATS in those games. Buffalo hit the board as a 5.5-point road favorite, which would be the lowest spread in the last three meetings.

Buffalo Bills Week 2 Matchup

While the Bills are hoping to improve their point production overall, they haven’t had problems lighting up the scoreboard in recent meetings with the Dolphins. Over the last three encounters the Bills are averaging nearly 37 points while topping the 30-point mark each time. They scored 31 and 37 points in two games against Miami last season, their two highest scoring games of the season. And the new-look offense was working against the Jets last week.

Buffalo’s dedication to becoming a more balanced offense and investing in the passing attack was evident during the offseason with the acquisition of Diggs. It came to fruition on Sunday. Allen had never thrown more than 41 passes in a regular season game in his career. And he never threw for more than 300 yards. Those numbers were topped against the Jets.

Allen completed 33 of 46 attempts for 312 yards with two touchdowns and no interceptions. You expected more balls to be in the air after Diggs came on board, and that’s exactly what happened. The Bills are counting on the continued development of Allen to spark an offense that finished near the bottom of the league rankings in passing yards and points. So far so good.

As bad as the Bills and Dolphins have been offensively the last few seasons it’s hard to imagine the shootouts they’ve had. The teams have combined for more than 50 points in each of the last three meetings easily cashing the OVER every time. And going back to the 2015 season the OVER is 8-2 in those 10 games.

Miami will have to pick up the pace to hold up its end of the deal. The offense struggled in a 21-11 loss to New England with Ryan Fitzpatrick throwing three interceptions while going 20 of 30 for 191 yards. The Dolphins’ offense totaled just 269 yards. The group could be further hampered after receiver DeVante Parker exited with a hamstring injury and didn’t return.

Buffalo could give the ground game more work this week after the Dolphins were gouged for 217 rushing yards by the Patriots. Miami couldn’t stop Cam Newton, who rushed for 75 yards and a pair of touchdowns. Allen is equally dangerous running the football leading the Bills with 57 yards and a score on 14 carries against the Jets.

Buffalo Bills Week 1 Recap

The Bills looked sharp in the first half scoring a touchdown on three of their five possessions en route to a 27-17 win over the New York Jets. Allen scored on a 2-yard run then followed with a 4-yard scoring strike to Zack Moss and a 17-yard touchdown pass to Marquise Brown for a 21-0 lead midway through the second quarter. The only blemish on the first half performance was a pair of turnovers, both Allen fumbles. Things cooled off in the second half but the Bills were the superior team.

It was a dominant performance on both sides of the football over the first 30 minutes. Buffalo outgained New York 223-102. The Jets avoided the shutout when Sam Ficken hit a 31-yard field goal with no time left on the first half clock.

Allen had a career-high 312 passing yards, the first 300-yard game by a Bills quarterback since the end of the 2016 season. Allen spread the ball around with eight different receivers having multiple catches. Diggs led the way with eight receptions for 86 yards and John Brown had six catches for 70 yards and a touchdown.

Defensively the Bills held New York to 254 total yards with Sam Darnold completing 21 of 35 for just 215 yards. The unit sustained a blow, though, when starting linebackers Matt Milano and Tremaine Edmunds both left with injuries.
