The Buffalo Bills and Minnesota Vikings clash Saunday in week 10 NFL action from Bills Stadium.

The Minnesota Vikings will be out to build on their 7-1 record and 6-game win streak after a 20-17 win over Washington last time out. Kirk Cousins has thrown for 1,999 yards, 13 touchdowns and 6 interceptions on 64.8% passing while Dalvin Cook leads the Vikings in rushing with 608 rushing yards and 5 touchdowns this season. Justin Jefferson leads the Vikings’ receiving group with 59 grabs for 867 yards and a pair of touchdowns while Adam Thielen has 38 grabs for 418 receiving yards this season. On defense, Jordan Hicks has a team-high 74 total tackles including 52 solo tackles while Za’Darius Smith has 8.5 sacks this season.

The Buffalo Bills will try to bounce back from their own 20-17 decision, losing to the New York Jets in their last game. Josh Allen has thrown for 2,403 yards, 19 touchdowns and 8 interceptions on 64.1% passing while also leading the Bills on the ground with 392 rushing yards this season. Devin Singletary has 347 rushing yards and Stefon Diggs leads Buffalo’s receiving group with 60 grabs for 857 yards and 7 TDs while Gabriel Davis has 451 receiving yards and 4 TDs as well this season. Four other Bills have 100+ receiving yards as well on the year. On defense, Tremaine Edmunds has a team-high 63 total tackles while Von Miller has a team-high 7 sacks and Greg Rousseau has 5 sacks this season.

Minnesota is 8-1-1 ATS in their last 10 games on turf and 4-0 ATS in their last 4 games in week 10 while the over is 5-1 in their last 6 road games against a team with a winning home record. Buffalo is 6-1-2 ATS in their last 9 games following a loss and 3-0-1 ATS in their last 4 week 10 matchups while the under is 6-0 in their last 6 games overall.

I get the case to be made either way here, but I’d like more concrete info on Josh Allen before really going full boar on Buffalo. Instead, I’m going to side with the over. I don’t love Kirk Cousins personally, but he should be able to have his share of success against a banged up Bills’ secondary, while the Bills should have some fun at Minnesota’s expense and I have a feeling Stefon Diggs wants this one just a little bit more than usual. Give me the over.
