How to bet on the Buffalo Bills

Moneyline

The moneyline is the simplest of bets, decided by the straight-up winner and loser of each game. Consider the following example:

  • Bills -105
  • Steelers +130

The Bills are considered slight favorites in this matchup (indicated by -105), requiring a $105 bet to win $100 (plus the initial bet back). The Steelers are the underdog in this matchup, paying out $130 total for a $100 bet ($130 in winnings). How much either team wins or loses by does not matter in moneyline betting, the payout remains the same.

Point spread

Betting on the point spread is determinant on how many points a team wins or loses by. Take the following example:

  • Bills -2.5 (-110)
  • Dolphins +2.5 (-110)

In this example, Buffalo is favored by 2.5 points, indicated by “-2.5.” If the Bills win the game 23-20, the Bills (-2.5) win the bet and would have a total payout of $19.09 on a $10 bet ($9.09 in profit). If the Dolphins keep the game within three and lose 24-23, the Dolphins (+2.5) would win, and the payout would be the same as listed above.

Point total (over/under)

The point total refers to the over/under line set by books. This number projects the total number of points scored in a game and, like prop betting, is bet whether one thinks the score will go over or under the set point total. For example, a game between the Patriots and Bills had a point total set at 52.5 points. Buffalo win the ballgame 38-9, which resulted in 47 total points. Those who bet the under in this game would cash out.

The expectation for the Bills’ explosive offense should nudge point totals near or above 50 points, though their talented defense might keep those totals perfectly average in the NFL this coming season.

In-play and live betting

Sometimes, the most thrilling and rewarding bets are bets made while games are being played. These are referred to as live bets or in-play bets. Odds are ever-changing during games, which would prove to be fruitful for sharp and prepared bettors. For example, if the Bills (-225) were heavily favored against the Panthers (+190) before kickoff, a payout on a $10 bet on the Bills to win would win just $4.44.

However, say the Bills fell to a big 17-3 deficit in the first half despite controlling the overall game (due to a costly turnover or special teams gaffe). Odds may swing in favor of the Panthers, who may be a -110 favorite at halftime. Taking the Bills to come back and win the game could present plus-odds (say, +130). Should a bettor take Buffalo (+130) at halftime and the Bills pull off the comeback, winners would win $13 instead of $4.44 (plus the initial $10 bet).

This could also be an effective way to “hedge” your bet; say a bettor took the Panthers (+190) in that game, but Buffalo jumps out to a 10-0 first quarter lead and is controlling the overall feel of the game, bettors could hedge by throwing some money down on Buffalo (-270) to return some of the inevitably-lost bet.

Parlays and teasers

You can always string bets together in the form of parlays or teasers. Usually during busy Sundays, bettors can parlay several teams to win or cover against the spread and if all bets are successful, the payouts are multiplied. Teasers function similarly, except they allow bettors to move each point spread to a more favorable line in exchange for diminished odds.

Bills 2020 recap

Record: 13-3

Record ATS: 11-5

Over/under record: 10-5-1

Buffalo quickly became the favorite Cinderella team in the AFC. Josh Allen made one of the biggest single-season improvements of any quarterback, increasing his completion percentage nearly 10 points. Newly-added Stefon Diggs (acquired from the Vikings in an offseason trade) torched secondaries for the NFL receiving crown in 2020-21. Even longtime veteran Cole Beasley had somewhat of a breakout season, nearly breaking the 1,000-yard mark for the first time in his career (he finished with 967 yards). The Bills finished third in points scored per game (29.9), though the defense took a significant step back from 2019. Their 13-3 record is the franchise’s best since 1991 and ties their highest-ever regular season win total.

11-5 was tied for the league lead in record against the spread (with Miami) as the Bills routinely defied expectations. Their offense was explosive even against some of the NFL’s best defenses– scoring 35 on the Rams in Week 3 (second in points per game allowed) and 59 on the Dolphins in Week 17 (fourth). The Bills were able to outpace almost anyone, which resulted in such a high ATS mark as well as against the point total. Their 10-5-1 record against the point total was good enough for fourth in the NFL.
