Bills vs. Jets Prediction

NFL Week 17 Predictions: Buffalo Bills vs. New York Jets 1/1/17

The Bills are a slight road favorite today at 1:00PM ET against the Jets. Is Buffalo worth a play for bettors?

According to oddsmakers from online sports book BetDSI, the Bills are now 3.5-point road favorites versus the Jets after opening as a 5-point favorite. As for the total, the number hit the board at 45 but has been bet down to 42.5 at the majority of online and Vegas sports books.

BUFFALO KEY TRENDS: The Bills have failed to cover in four of their last five games overall and are just 1-4 against the spread in their last five divisional games as well. They're also 3-7-1 against the spread in their last 11 road games, are 2-6 against the number in their last eight games in January, and are 3-7-1 ATS in their last 11 contests after accumulating more than 350 total yards in their previous game.

NEW YORK KEY TRENDS: The Jets are just 2-5 against the spread in their last seven home games, are 2-5 against the number in their last seven games overall, and are 1-4 at the betting window in their last five conference games. They have also failed to cover in four of their last five games after accumulating less than 150 yards passing in their previous contest.

OUR PREDICTION: The Bills will start EJ Manuel at quarterback today, which gives me some pause when it comes to backing them at the betting window. That said, no matter who starts under center, Buffalo will rely on LeSean McCoy and he's good enough to take over the game, especially against a New York defense that checked out weeks ago. The Bills are 5-1 against the spread in their last six games versus the Jets and have covered in seven of their last 10 road games versus New York. The Jets are a mess, internally and externally.
