Gamblers making an NFL bet at the Sbg sportsbook might side with the Bills since they have a winning record against the spread this season.
Game in Toronto
Keep in mind when you make an NFL bet on this game that it will be played at the Rogers Centre in Toronto. That might not hurt the Bills anyway since they don’t have a huge home field edge in Buffalo.
Somehow the Chicago Bears are 4-3 even though quarterback Jay Cutler is taking a beating every week. Offensive coordinator Mike Martz continues to call plays that put Cutler at risk and he gets pounded every week. The Bears had a bye last week and Cutler needed the rest. He was sacked four times and threw four interceptions to DeAngelo Hall in the loss to the Redskins. Cutler has been sacked a league-leading total of 27 times, 19 in the last three games. The Chicago offense has been terrible lately with Cutler taking sack after sack. Chicago is horrible on third down with a league-worst 18-per cent conversion rate. Whether the bye week will help Chicago is in debate but we’ll see on Sunday.
Hard Luck Bills
There is not a team in the NFL that is playing harder than the Buffalo Bills and getting nothing out of it. Buffalo lost in overtime on Sunday for the second straight week. They looked to have beaten the Kansas City Chiefs in overtime but Kansas City head coach Todd Haley called a timeout just before the kick and Rian Lindell missed the second one. The Chiefs were able to drive down and Ryan Succop hit the game winner for Kansas City and the Bills left with another bitter defeat. Buffalo is the fourth team in NFL history to lose on the road in overtime in back-to-back weeks. The Bills are now off to the third-worst start in franchise history.
The Bears have won four of the seven meetings in this NFL betting series with the last meeting coming in 2006. The Bears won 40-7 at home that season. The Bills won the previous two meetings in 2000 and 2002, both in Buffalo.
