The Bills easily covered the big NFL betting pointspread last week as they lost by one-point. This week they will host the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in a game they should win.
Football betting has the Bills a 5-point favorite with a total of 42. Last week the Bills should have won outright but they blew an 11-point lead with just over two minutes to play to lose 25-24. It was definitely not a good week for Buffalo cornerback Leodis McKelvin who fumbled a kickoff to give the Patriots their chance and then had his yard vandalized this week. "I chose to bring it out because that's me," McKelvin said. "If I had that choice, probably 100 times, I'd do it again. Next time I get the opportunity, I've just got to do my job and make sure I hold onto the ball." His head coach didn’t have a problem with his decision either which is probably why this will be Dick Jauron’s last season. "It was one of those things that happen, but I don't have any problem with Leodis," he said. "He's a guy that plays hard. He's a guy that really could take it to the house."
Buffalo is favored in football betting this week but it is always risky to take a team coached by Jauron. The team covered last week in football betting against the Patriots but they didn’t do much on offense getting Terrell Owens the ball. "He's obviously a big-time weapon in our offense and we need to keep getting him the ball," quarterback Trent Edwards said.
Buffalo faces a Tampa Bay defense that was run over in football betting as they gave up 462 yards to the Cowboys in a bad NFL betting loss last week.
