Week 2 Patriots vs Bills Betting Odds: Predict the Score!

New, comments

Can the Patriots continue their win streak against the Buffalo Bills?

David Butler II-USA TODAY Sports

The New England Patriots are heading to Buffalo to take on the Bills. The odds makers currently have the game at a push, so they're projecting an even-battle as is tradition with Rex Ryan. The even betting line favors the Bills.

The Patriots have failed to cover the spread in five of the six prior games against Rex Ryan, with the Buttfumble game the lone exception. If the line is even, and the Patriots fail to reach the line, that means that the final score projects a Bills victory.

This, of course, is counter to quarterback Tom Brady and his 23-3 record against the Bills- and that is including the Week 17 game last season where Brady played a half and most of the starters didn't play. The Patriots have reached the Super Bowl in each season they've lost to the Bills (2003, 2011, 2014).

Brady is also 4-0 in games with an even line. Two of those games happened over a decade ago (2001, 2004), and the other two happened last season: We're on to Cincinnati, and the Super Bowl.

The over/under is also set at 45. The Patriots and Rex Ryan-led Jets hit the over on eight of their prior ten games. The two exceptions were Week 16 last season where the Patriots were resting certain players, and the start of the 2013 season when the Patriots didn't really have an offense.

What is your prediction for the game?
