Why Bet The Buffalo Bills To Beat The Jets
After losing to the Miami Dolphins 34-31 last week, the Buffalo Bills fired head coach Rex Ryan. The OC Anthony Lynn will serve as an interim coach for this game. They are 7-8 SU and 6-8-1 ATS this season. They average 25.9 points per game (7th) and allow 23.2 points per game (15th).
"I spoke with Rex earlier today, and we mutually agreed that the time to part ways is now," Bills owner Terry Pegula said in a statement. "These decisions are never easy. I want to take this opportunity to thank Rex for all his efforts and wish him all the best moving forward. Kim and I and our entire Bills organization share in the same disappointment and frustration as our fans, but we remain committed to our goal of bringing a championship to Western New York."
Buffalo averages 191.6 passing yards per game (31st). QB Tyrod Taylor (3023 yards, 17 TDs & 6 INTs) won’t play on Sunday. The Bills would have to pay $30.75 million to Taylor if he was injured in this game. The team made a business decision to start QB EJ Manuel and possible save 30 million. WR Robert Woods (47 rec, 570 yards, 1 TD) and TE Charles Clay (54 rec, 532 yards, 4 TDs) will finish the season as two most productive receivers. The Bills have the best rushing offense in the NFL. They average 170.8 rushing yards per game (1st). RB LeSean McCoy (229 car, 1257 yards, 13 TDs) surpassed the 1000-yard mark for the fifth time in his career.
Buffalo has the 19th total defense in the NFL. The Bills allow 245.0 passing yards per game (7th) and 133.5 rushing yards per game (28th). They have recorded 38 sacks this season (5th). LB Zach Brown leads the team with 138 tackles, and LB Lorenzo Alexander has 11.5 sacks.
Why Bet The NY Jets To Beat The Bills
The NY Jets are 4-11 SU and 5-9-1 ATS this season after getting destroyed by the New England Patriots 41-3 last week. They average 16.3 points per game (30th) and allow 26.6 points per game (29th).
The Jets average 217.6 passing yards per game (27th). QB Bryce Petty (809 yards, 3 TDs & 7 INTs) was placed on injured reserve Monday due to a torn labrum in his left shoulder. QB Ryan Fitzpatrick (2500 yards, 10 TDs & 17 INTs) will be back at the controls. WR Brandon Marshall (59 rec, 788 yards, 3 TDs) hopes to find a touch of the old magic he had with Fitzpatrick. Marshall lost his pink slip, most receiving yards bet to Steeler WR Antonio Brown and will be playing angry this week.
New York averages 111.7 rushing yards per game (13th). RB Bilal Powell (109 car, 600 yards, 3 TDs) has run hard over the last three weeks. 289-yards of his 600 rushing yards this season have come in the last three games.
New York has the 16th-ranked total defense in the NFL. They give up 249.0 passing yards per game (20th) and 100.9 rushing yards (14th). The Jets have recorded 24 sacks this season (31st). LB David Harris has 87 tackles, and DT Leonard Williams has 7.0 sacks.

Buffalo Bills Vs NY Jets ATS Pick:
This would be an easy game to pick if Tyrod was starting because when in doubt you always bet on the better QB. With Fitz under center for the Jets and Manuel for the Bills makes this a subpar game to watch and bet on. But if you must, then take points and bet the Jets.
