PUBLIC BETTING: As of this writing, 57% of betting tickets are on the Patriots to cover the spread but 66% of the money is actually on the underdog Bills.

INJURY REPORT: For the Bills, E.J. Gaines (knee), Kelvin Benjamin (knee), and John Miller (ankle) are all questionable. On the other side, Alan Branch (knee) is out, but Kyle Van Noy (calf) and Chris Hogan (shoulder) are both questionable.

OUR PREDICTION: The under is 5-2 in the Bills' last seven road games and is 9-2 in their last 11 games on fieldturf. On the other side, the under is a perfect 5-0 in the Patriots' last five games in December and is 5-0 in their last five games versus a team with a winning record. The under is also 8-2 in the Patriots' last 10 games overall, is 6-2 in their last eight games coming off a win, and is 5-2 in their last seven AFC East divisional games.
