Buffalo is 8-2-2 ATS in their last 12 road games and 6-2-1 ATS in their last 9 games against a team with a winning record while the over is 3-0-1 in their last 4 games following a win. Tennessee is 0-4 ATS in their last 4 games overall and 3-7-1 ATS in their last 11 home games while the over is 12-4 in their last 16 games overall. The road team is 4-1 ATS in the last 5 meetings between these two teams.
I get that the Titans as a home dog are tempting, but after missing a couple of weeks, you have to wonder if there’s going to be any rust or timing issues between Tannehill and his receivers. The Titans tend to rely on a run-first offense as it is, and that could allow for the Bills to cheat a bit and try to stop the run. I just think the Bills have more balance and have found something with Josh Allen and Stefon Diggs heading the offense. I think the Bills are more than capable of keeping their run going on the road and winning this one by a TD, so I’ll lay the points with Buffalo in this spot.
