The Buffalo Bills and the New York Giants meet in a week 2 inter-conference matchup in NFL action from MetLife Stadium on Sunday afternoon.
The Buffalo Bills will look to win their second game at MetLife Stadium in as many weeks after starting the year with a 17-16 win over the New York Jets in their season opener. Josh Allen threw for 254 yards, a touchdown and two interceptions on 24 of 37 passing while also rushing for a touchdown as well. Devin Singletary led the Bills with 70 rushing yards with his 4 carries while John Brown had a team-high 7 receptions for 123 yards and a touchdown. Defensively, the Bills combined for 4 sacks in the win, led by Jordan Poyer who had a sack as well as 6 solo tackles and 3 assisted tackles, the same tackling mark as Matt Milano as the Bills held the Jets to just 223 yards of total offense in the win.
The New York Giants will look to rebound after being throttled in their series opener against Dallas by a final score of 35-17. Eli Manning threw for 306 yards and a touchdown on 30 of 44 passing while Saquon Barkley led the Giants with 120 rushing yards on 11 carries and Wayne Gallman Jr. had a rushing touchdown as well in the loss. Evan Engram far and away led the Giants’ receiving group with 11 catches for 116 yards and a touchdown while Cody Latimer had 3 grabs for 74 yards. Defensively, Jabrill Peppers led the Giants with 6 solo tackles in the losing effort.
Buffalo is 4-1 ATS in their last 5 games following a win and 0-6 ATS in their last 6 road games against a team with a losing home record while the under is 7-1 in their last 8 road games. New York is 1-6-1 ATS in their last 8 home games and 2-8 ATS in their last 10 games in September while the over is 4-0 in their last 4 games following a loss. The road team is 4-0-1 ATS in the last 5 meetings between these two teams.
The Giants and points at home can be worth a look, but with the line being this low, if you take the points, you’re basically saying that the Giants win this game and normally against Buffalo, I’d say that’s a real possibility. However, the Bills were solid in the preseason, and while they started out porrly against the Jets, they still rallied from a 16-point deficit and won their game. The Bills also have the rare advantage of not having to travel for back-to-back road games with both games being held at MetLife Stadium. New York will be out to make amends for a poor showing against Dallas, but I think there’s more there than just a loss in week 1, so I’ll lay the points with Buffalo on the road here.
