The Bills have a new head coach, no proven quarterback and a lot of questions. There are only three games where the bills might be favored in NFL betting in 2010.
Betting NFL action should go against the Bills on a regular basis. The Bills are underdogs in Week 1 against the Miami Dolphins and that is going to be the case all year. It is very likely that the Bills are going to start the season 0-4. They open at home against the Dolphins and then go on the road to Green Bay and New England. They then come home to host the New York Jets. Anything other than a 0-4 start would be a surprise. They would have to win their home game against Jacksonville on October 10th to avoid starting 0-5 before they have their bye week.
Buffalo is expected to be a very poor team this season and they will not be in prime time at all. Every one of their games has a 1 pm Eastern time start. After the Bills have their bye in Week 6 it doesn’t get any easier as they travel to Baltimore in Week 7. They go to Kansas City in Week 8 and that is not a game they will be favored in. They play Chicago in Toronto in what is technically a home game although how much support the Bills get in Canada is a huge question mark. It could also be that the Bills are still winless heading into that game. The one game that the Bills should be favored in NFL betting is in Week 10 against the Lions at home. That is not a sure win though as Detroit is vastly improved from last season. Week 11 has the Bills going to Cincinnati and in Week 12 the Bills host the Pittsburgh Steelers. They go to Minnesota in Week 13 and then host the Cleveland Browns in Week 14. Perhaps the Bills can pick up a win against the Browns although Cleveland is better than they were a year ago. The last three games of the season look like losses for Buffalo. They are at Miami, host New England and then finish up against the New York Jets.
The Bills have no proven quarterback and no real offensive threats although that could change with rookie running back C.J. Spiller. They will need him to have a great rookie season since the rest of this team looks weak.
