The Bills are 5-0 ATS in their last five games overall and 4-0 ATS in their last four after an ATS win. Buffalo is 5-2 ATS in their last seven in Week 15 and 10-4-2 ATS in their last 16 road games.
Meanwhile, the Broncos are 7-2 ATS in their last nine versus the AFC and 5-2 ATS in their last seven in December. Denver is 4-9 ATS in their last 13 in Week 15 and 0-4 ATS in their last four Saturday games.
PICK: I’m going Bills here. Buffalo has been quite impressive all season. They’re 6-1 in their last seven games, with a two-point loss to Arizona being the only hiccup in that stretch. Each of the Bills’ last three wins have come by double-digits, and they’ve hit 26 or more points in each of their last five games. Denver had a good win last weekend, but had scored 20 points or fewer in each of their previous four. I don’t think they’ll be able to keep up with Buffalo.
