Buffalo Bills Betting Analysis
The betting market is clearly infatuated with the Bills, and rightfully so, as they were 13 seconds away from hosting the AFC championship game before Patrick Mahomes delivered a miracle blow. Hence, motivation will certainly be on their side.
But Buffalo lost its fair share of critical pieces, with Brian Daboll — the offensive coordinator-turned-Giants head coach — probably most impactful. Other headliners included wideout Cole Beasley, who ranked second in team targets (112) a season ago, cornerback Levi Wallace, sack leader Mario Addison, and fellow defensive linemen Star Lotulelei and Jerry Hughes.
Even though the Bills attempted to fill some of those voids with a soon-to-be Hall of Fame edge rusher Von Miller, slot receiver Jamison Crowder and first-round pick CB Kaiir Elam, they either come with injury risk or performance uncertainty.
