The Line: Buffalo Bills -3.5 -- Over/Under: 40
The New York Jets and the Buffalo Bills will face off in Week 14 NFL action on Sunday.
The Jets stumble in here at 3-9 on the year. New York hasn’t won since October 14, dropping games to the Vikings, Bears, Dolphins, Bills, Pats and Titans.
In the Tennessee game, New York QB Josh McCown put up 128 yards and a pick, while Isaiah Crowell logged 98 yards on 21 totes. Robby Anderson posted four grabs for 48 yards to lead the Jets receiving corps.
Over on the Bills’ side, they’re 4-8 this year. Buffalo showed some moxie with a couple of wins over the Jets and the Jaguars, but then returned to their losing ways versus the Dolphins in their last outing.
In the Miami game, Buffalo QB Josh Allen logged 231 yards, two TDs and two INTs, and also led the rush with 135 yards on nine carries. Leading the Bills receivers was Zay Jones on 67 yards with two scores.
The Jets are 5-2 ATS in their last seven in Week 14 and 15-6-2 ATS in their last 23 in December. New York is 1-4 ATS in their last five road games and 1-5 ATS in their last six overall.
Meanwhile, the Bills are 4-9 ATS in their last 13 versus the AFC East and 2-5 ATS in their last seven in Week 14. The over is 19-7 in the Bills’ last 26 home games and the under is 5-2 in their last seven versus the AFC.
There’s not much intrigue going on here; both teams are the dregs of the AFC East, and they know it. The last game between the Jets and Bills was a 41-10 blowout Buffalo win, but I think this one will be much closer, especially if Sam Darnold returns to give the team a lift.
New York is adept at winning meaningless games near the end of the season, and I think they’ll at least get close. I’ll go Jets on the cover.
