The Buffalo Bills are in the familiar spot of being underdogs when it comes to the betting lines. They may be a smart bet in Week 13.

I have a familiar sentence for you: The Buffalo Bills are underdogs heading into Sunday.

The Bills currently sit as 4.5-point underdogs as they prepare to take on the 5-6 Miami Dolphins on the road this Sunday.

The Bills have won two straight, while the Dolphins have lost two straight. It would be five straight for the Dolphins if not for a 13-6 victory over the lowly New York Jets a few weeks back.

The best win for the Dolphins this year came against the Chicago Bears back at a time when Brock Osweiler was starting and fans in Miami may have been thinking playoffs. But Brocktober came to an end and Ryan Tannehill is back in being average at quarterback.

The Dolphins are coming off a game they gave away to the Indianapolis Colts, while the Bills are fired up after a passionate victory over the Jacksonville Jaguars.

The two teams seem to be going in different directions. The Bills are gaining some momentum at the end of the year and the return of Josh Allen has given the team a spark after some putrid quarterback play for several weeks.

At the opposite end of the spectrum, the Dolphins have a crisis at quarterback and it may cost Adam Gase his job. A loss to the Bills certainly wouldn’t help his case to stay on the sidelines in 2019.

I have admittedly picked the Bills this season to win certain games just for fun. Because why not? Anything can happen. This time around, I believe the Bills will not only cover, but will win the game. I think this spread should be flipped.

The Bills are showing that there is enough talent on the team to win. It was just a matter of getting some production at quarterback to boost the rest of the team.

Next. 3 takeaways after back-to-back victories. dark

Do you think the Bills are a safe bet in this game?
