Buffalo Bills NFL Betting

Once again, a season is ending in heartbreak in northern New York. However, this time it stings a little more than usual as the Buffalo Bills were the preseason Super Bowl favorites by the NFL betting odds. Buffalo went 13-3 and easily won the AFC East, but the Bills fell in the Divisional Round for the second straight season. Injuries to Micah Hyde and Von Miller hurt this defense, but there will be a number of questions about the offense going into the offseason. The Bills have been unable to run the ball or take advantage of their environment in the winter, so some observers are calling on the team to retool the roster to take advantage of the frigid conditions present in January.

Buffalo Bills 2022 Season Recap

The Buffalo Bills went 13-3 during the regular season, and they didn’t lose a game by more than three points. However, football took a back seat on Monday Night Football in Week 17 as Damar Hamlin went into cardiac arrest after making a tackle during the first quarter of a game against the Cincinnati Bengals. Hamlin remained motionless for minutes before being resuscitated and taken to the nearest hospital, but the life-threatening issue led to the game being cancelled. Fortunately, Hamlin seems to have made a full recovery, and he is walking around and talking to the team again.

Josh Allen is one of the most talented quarterbacks in the NFL, but he was turnover prone throughout the 2023 campaign. Allen completed 63.3% of his passes for 4,283 yards (7.6 YPA) with 35 touchdowns, and he was the second leading rusher on the team with 762 yards (6.1 YPC) and seven touchdowns. However, he threw 14 interceptions and fumbled eight times (losing two fumbles). Allen ended up leading the league in red zone turnovers, but this was still one of the top offenses in the league.

Stefon Diggs was named an All-Pro for the second time in his career, hauling in 108 passes for 1,429 yards and 11 touchdowns. Gabriel Davis proved to be one of the best deep threats in the league, averaging 17.4 YPR with seven touchdowns, and tight end Dawson Knox had a solid year with 48 receptions for 517 yards and six TDs.

Buffalo’s ground game averaged 5.2 YPC, but the Bills struggled to move the ball with the run game for long chunks of the season. Devin Singletary ran for 819 yards and five touchdowns, but he also fumbled three times. Rookie James Cook is probably the future of the position after running for 507 yards and averaging 5.7 YPC in 2022, as Singletary is likely set to leave in free agency.

The Bills had a top seven defense in the NFL. Buffalo allowed 19.1 PPG and 319.4 YPG, and the pass defense was very good. However, the loss of Von Miller in early December really hurt this pass rush. Defensive end Greg Rousseau had eight sacks, and he was the only other reliable pass rusher on the roster. Ed Oliver did a good job stuffing the run, and Matt Milano and Tremaine Edmunds are solid run stoppers at linebacker.

This secondary looked to be one of the best in the NFL at the start of the season. Unfortunately, Micah Hyde suffered a season-ending injury in Week 2. Hyde and Jordan Poyer had long been the best safety duo in the league, and Hyde’s presence was missed. That became an even bigger deal when Tre’Davious White was injured, but the young reserves played well in most situations.

The Buffalo Bills will open the NFL season on Thursday, September 8, at the defending Super Bowl champion Los Angeles Rams. NBC owns the tradition of televising the season's opening game each year on a Thursday night. Last year, the Bills and Rams could have been the Super Bowl matchup and is a potential preview for Super Sunday in February 2023.

The Bills' home opener is on ESPN Monday Night Football against the Tennessee Titans in week two. Tennessee is a team with a potential quarterback controversy.

From there, the Bills enter the toughest stretch of their schedule. Week three brings a game at the Miami Dolphins followed by a matchup at the Pittsburgh Steelers. And then, after a home game against the Pittsburgh Steelers comes a rematch of that epic 2021 playoff game at the Kansas City Chiefs. On October 30, the Bills are back on NBC Sunday Night Football when they host the Green Bay Packers in a week eight matchup.

Week 13 brings a potentially dangerous game at the New England Patriots on Prime Video. New England will be seeking revenge for its blowout playoff loss at Buffalo last year.

In week 17, the Bills are at the Cincinnati Bengals on ESPN Monday Night Football with a simulcast on ABC. This matchup could be a preview of the AFC playoffs.

The Buffalo Bills were founded in 1960 as charter members of the American Football League. Since that season, they have shared the same division with the New York Jets and New England Patriots. And the Miami Dolphins joined the division in 1966 as an expansion team.

Buffalo was an AFL powerhouse in the mid-1960s, winning the league title in 1964 and 1965. But for most of the next two decades, the Bills wallowed in mediocrity. But with the arrival of quarterback Jim Kelly and head coach Marv Levy, Buffalo made four consecutive Super Bowls from 1990 through 1993. However, the Bills were unable to win that final game.

Buffalo missed the playoffs just two times in the Bills' glory era from 1988 through 1999. Levy and Kelly headlined multiple Hall of Fame inductions for those teams.

Other famous past Bills include Jack Kemp, Elbert Dubenion, Mike Stratton, OJ Simpson, Joe Cribbs, Joe Ferguson, Therman Thomas, Andre Reed, and Bruce Smith.

Buffalo has a new state-of-the-art stadium project approved. The new facility will ensure the Bills’ future in the Niagara Falls area.
