Patriots vs Bills NFL Week 8 Odds & Pick for Monday Night

Bills Taking Steps Back

What a difference a year makes. Last season, the Buffalo Bills made the playoffs. This year, the Buffalo Bills are nowhere near the playoffs and they are headed down a losing path. Buffalo has run into all sorts of problem. The Bills first-round draft pick, quarterback Josh Allen is out, and journeyman Derek Anderson will be under center. LeSean McCoy is in the concussion protocol and is questionable to play. And just when you thought things couldn’t get any worse, the New England Patriots are coming to town for Monday Night Football.

Buffalo’s offense has been dismal this season. The Bills rank 31st in total yardage, 32nd in rushing yards, and 32nd in points scored. With Derek Anderson taking snaps, things don’t look to get much better.

The only bright spot for Buffalo has been their defense. The Bills rank 3rd in total yards allowed and are 4th in passing yards allowed. If the Bills hope to have any chance in this game, they’ll need great play from their secondary.

Patriots Led by the GOAT

You can’t talk about a Buffalo Bills vs. New England Patriots game without talking about Tom Brady. Brady owns a 28-3 career record against the Bills. Brady has also thrown more touchdown passes against the Bills than any other opponent. This season, Brady is 124 yards shy of 2,000, with 16 touchdowns. Rob Gronkowski only has one touchdown reception this season, but the addition of Josh Gordon has been huge.

The Patriots are 14th in passing and 13th in rushing, but 4th in the NFL in scoring. In the latest win for the Patriots; their special teams scored two touchdowns, as they went to Chicago and downed the Bears.

Patriots vs Bills should be an easy victory for New England.

The Patriots losses came back to back in Weeks 2 and 3 on the road at the Jaguars and then on Monday Night Football to the Lions. The Patriots are at home on Sunday Night Football next week as they take on the Green Bay Packers.

Patriots vs Bills Final Prediction

This game has all the makings of a New England blowout victory. The Buffalo Bills are short-handed, and they’re going up against a Patriot team that has been playing well.

Tom Brady vs. Derek Anderson. With or without Rob Gronkowski, the Patriots will roll on Monday night. We are going to go ahead and go with the favorites in this game. The final bet is on the New England Patriots -14 over the Buffalo Bills.
