The Bills are 9-4-2 ATS in their last 15 road games, 1-4 ATS vs. a team with a losing record and 0-3-1 ATS in their last 4 Monday games. The 49ers are 13-3 ATS in their last 16 Monday games, 1-4 ATS in their last 5 home games and 1-5 ATS in their last 6 games on grass. The over is 7-3-1 in Bills last 11 games overall. The under is 5-2 in 49ers last 7 games as an underdog. The favorite is 4-1 ATS in their last 5 meetings.
The Buffalo Bills continue to find themselves in close games and you're almost waiting for things to fall apart, but they continue to win and they're taking care of business in the games they're supposed to. The San Francisco 49ers had probably their best game yet last week in a road victory over the Rams, and the defense continues to show up, and it's only going to be more consistent with the return of Richard Sherman. With all that said, the Bills are almost being overlooked with this line, as they've been head and shoulders the better and more consistent team this season. I would need more points to even consider looking the 49ers way in this matchup. I'll gladly lay the small line with the Bills.
