The Buffalo Bills are near the basement of the standings, but still open up as favorites for the Week 15 matchup against the Detroit Lions.

The Buffalo Bills are back at home this upcoming Sunday against the Detroit Lions in a matchup of teams at the bottom of the NFL standings.

The good news, at least for Bills fans hoping to see a win, is that the Bills enter the game as favorites, according to OddsShark. The line could move throughout the week, but the Bills are set as 2.5-point favorites as of right now.

Maybe the Lions will practice outside again this week and move the line in their favor. Or mutiny against Matt Patricia. One of the two.

Right now the Bills have a record of 4-9, while the Lions sit at 5-8. Both teams are out of the playoff picture and some fans on both sides may be hoping for a loss to help improve draft position.

But the Bills likely aren’t going to beat the New England Patriots and the Miami Dolphins will be a tough matchup as well. So a win over the Lions won’t change much, especially considering the Bills aren’t chasing a top quarterback prospect in the 2019 NFL Draft.

It would be nice for Josh Allen to gain some more confidence by picking up another win, and the team could use a nice bounce-back game after losing late to the Jets on Sunday. Right after a tough loss to the Dolphins.

I was confident betting on the Bills this past Sunday, and that remains true in this game against the Lions. The team is playing competitive football and the Lions have to leave the indoor confines of Ford Field to play outside at New Era Field.

Hopefully that will provide the ultimate difference and give the Bills a victory to help keep the team fighting hard over the final few weeks of the season.
