GAME OF THE WEEK (NFL): MIKE'S BILLS @ JETS BEST BET ATS
Buffalo vs. NY Jets,
09/08/2019 13:00 EDT,
Score: 17 - 16
Point Spread: +3/-108 Buffalo
The New York Jets host the Buffalo Bills in Week 1 of the NFL season this Sunday. The home team will surely close as a favorite, but I'm happy to take the points on the visiting Bills in this matchup.
Keep in mind that Buffalo boasts one of the best defensive units in pro football and gave up just 294.1 yards per game last year. Sure, the Bills were more effective stopping the pass than the run and the Jets have an outstanding running back with a point to prove in Le’veon Bell, but can new head coach Adam Gase get the best out of his team in Week 1?
The Bills have two very capable running backs of their own in LeSean McCoy and Frank Gore, and second-year QB Josh Allen must feel the pressure to step up his game this season.
The Bills are a solid 10-4 ATS in their last 14 season openers while the Jets are 2-6 ATS in their last 8 games in September. I think Buffalo will start better and its defense will keep the team in this game until the very end.
10* play on Buffalo Bills.
