Monday Night Football caps off a thrilling Week 1, but this could be the best game on the board with the Bills traveling to East Rutherford, New Jersey to take on the new-look Jets.

While the Jets stole the headlines in the offseason, trading for Aaron Rodgers and signing the likes of Dalvin Cook to jumpstart a playoff push, its the Bills who are the defending AFC East champs and will look to remind the NFL just that on Monday Night Football.

Our betting analyst Iain MacMillian is bullish on the Bills' chances of going to MetLife Stadium and taking down the Jets in Rodgers debut.

MacMillan doesn't deny that the Jets got far better this offseason, but thinks that there could be some growing pains for some of the new pieces for Gang Green.

"I think the Jets are a team that may get better as the season progresses, but Rodgers may need time to start to gel in a new offense with new teammates," MacMillian writes.

"Also, let's not forget just how good this Bills team is. They lead the AFC last season in average scoring margin at +8.6. They seem to be somehow underrated heading into 2023, despite returning largely the same team they had last season."

Buffalo is the more proven commodity, and in Week 1, MacMillian will trust them to cover as road favorites on Monday Night Football.

"The Bills are a tough task in Week 1 for a Jets team that's looking to be a contender in 2023. They may get there by the end of the season, but I don't think they'll be ready to compete at Buffalo's level quite yet," MacMillian proclaims.
