Eagles vs. Bills, 10/27/19 NFL Week 8 Betting Predictions

The Eagles are struggling and coming off an ugly loss to the Cowboys in Week 7, but should bettors take a buy low approach with Philly in Week 8? The Eagles find themselves as a small underdog at 1:00 p.m. ET in Buffalo against the Bills.

Philadelphia Eagles Fantasy Spin

DeSean Jackson (abdomen) has been ruled out for the Eagles' Week 8 matchup against the Bills. D-Jax still doesn't have a timeline for his return. Backup field-stretching WR Mack Hollins has one catch since Week 4, while Nelson Agholor has posted a combined 7-86-0 line on just 15 total targets over the past four weeks. Neither Hollins nor Agholor are realistic fantasy options in this tough spot.

Buffalo Bills Fantasy Spin

Devin Singletary played just 22-of-51 snaps (39%) in his Week 7 return from a hamstring injury against the Dolphins. Singletary was seeing his first action since Week 2 and played behind Frank Gore, who was in on 30 snaps and out-touched the rookie 12-7. The problem was the Bills ran a season-low 51 offensive plays, well below their season average of 67.4. It was especially disappointing considering the Dolphins allowed 65.6 plays per game. The Buffalo defense simply couldn't get off the field Sunday. Gore has played well his first year in Buffalo and has a firm grip on 1A duties to Singletary's 1B. Singletary should flirt with double-digit touches normally and will be a mere RB3/FLEX for Week 8 against the Eagles.

NFL Betting Trends


The Eagles are just 2-5 against the spread in their last seven games overall and are 2-5 at the betting window in their last seven games coming off a loss.


The Bills have covered the spread in six of their last eight games overall but have failed to cover in five of their last seven games against a team with a losing record.


The Eagles have issues far behind their banged-up, struggling secondary. They had a big issue keeping the pocket clean for Carson Wentz last Sunday night in Dallas and without Jason Peters, they’ll struggle again in Buffalo. Josh Allen hasn’t exactly been lighting opponents up but I also have a hunch this Philadelphia team is ready to wilt. There’s plenty of season left for the Eagles to turn things around eventually, but I don’t see it being on Sunday in Buffalo.
