Why Bet On New York Giants to Beat Buffalo (-5.5)
OBJ will have favorable matchup with Bills, who have done well against the run but not so well against the pass
So far, Buffalo has been close to perfect. They’ve beaten Indianapolis and Miami in 2 out of their 3 games. But, looks can be deceiving. The Indianapolis offense was terrible until it got on track versus Tennessee last Sunday. Miami has turned out to be a pretty lackluster bunch.
The one really good team that Buffalo has faced this season beat them silly. New England dominated Buffalo on the offensive end, scoring 40 points and totaling 451 yards in a 40 to 32 win. Almost all of New England’s yards were gained via Tom Brady passes. Brady completed 38 of 45 passes for 466 yards and 3 touchdowns. TE Gronkowski caught 7 passes for 113 yards and 1 TD. WR Julian Edelman caught 11 passes for 97 yards and RB Dion Lewis caught 6 passes for 98 yards.
Eli Manning could have close to the same success with TE Larry Donnell, WR Odell Beckham or WR Ruben Randle and pass-catching RB Shane Vereen. If Eli does that, the Giants will upset the Bills.

Why Bet On Buffalo (-5.5) to Beat New York Giants
Giants’ D has yet to face a QB this season as mobile as Tyrod Taylor.
Buffalo came into the season with expectations for a great defense. New Coach Rex Ryan had built terrific defenses everywhere he had coached. The defense has been playing okay, but what Ryan has also brought is an extremely effective offense.

The Bills’ offense averages 33.3 points per game. That ranks it third in the NFL in points per game. Buffalo is the top rushing team in the NFL at 152.7 yards per game. Surprisingly, QB Tyrod Taylor averages 220.3 passing yards per game, ranking the Bills eleventh in yards through the air per matchup.
With an ability to move the ball, the Bills should have no trouble beating the Giants, right? Not so fast. The Bills’ vaunted defense is allowing opposing quarterbacks to throw for an average of 326.7 yards per matchup. That ranks thirty-first in the league. Teams average 400 yards against the Bills’ D per game.
Manning should have no trouble finding open receivers against Buffalo. It’s time to go for the upset. My final score prediction is New York Giants 33, Buffalo 21.
