The Buffalo Bills came into Sunday’s game as a major underdog and lived up to that expectation after surprising NFL fans in Week 3.
The Buffalo Bills were given no chance to win the Week 3 matchup against the Minnesota Vikings. They came in as 16.5-point underdogs and left with a blowout victory.
So it goes in the betting world.
Bills fans were confident heading into today’s game, even though the team was a 9.5-point underdog against the Packers. But after last week, what was one to do when it came to betting on the game?
I sure hope no one put too much money on the Bills in this one as the team could not get into the end zone in a 22-0 defeat.
This 2018 Bills team is becoming quite difficult to predict. The group seemed destined for an 0-16 season after two weeks, only to bounce back and look like Josh Allen was the change the team needed. Then he went out and looked like a rookie in Green Bay.
As it stands now, this Bills team looks to be headed for a losing season. And that is not just an overreaction to this latest loss.
There are just too many holes on the roster, with a lot of glaring holes on the offensive side of the ball.
Kelvin Benjamin had only one reception in Green Bay, while LeSean McCoy finished with five carries for 24 yards. The offensive line isn’t exactly solidified and while Allen was at fault for a few of his seven sacks, some of that falls on the line as well.
The lack of production on offense leads to the defense being on the field often, with the confidence going lower and lower as the offense fails to score points.
The most frustrating part of all of this is that Bills fans saw the team pick up a dominant win in Week 3. The ability to win is there. But when it comes to betting on the Bills, the team is just far too unpredictable through four games.
