The Bills are the home team but it is hard to make an NFL bet on the Bills. They were slaughtered at home last week by the New York Jets and it was ugly.
Buffalo is 0-4 and there is not a lot of hope in New York that things are going to get any better. The Bills were routed 38-14 last week and they were gouged by running back LaDainian Tomlinson. That could mean that Maurice Jones-Drew has some running room for the Jaguars on Sunday. Tomlinson had 133 yards and two touchdowns for the Jets last week.
Hopeless Bills – The Bills have now allowed 30 points or more in three straight games. They are 0-4 for the third time since 2001. Quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick did nothing even though the stats will say he threw for two touchdowns. One of them was meaningless as it came in the fourth quarter. He was 12 of 27 for 128 yards overall. In their first four possessions, Buffalo had only 30 yards and one first down. The defense was awful as they gave up big chunks of yardage. They allowed 200 yards rushing two weeks ago against New England and it was even worse against the Jets. They figure to have a tough time against Jones-Drew and the Jaguars on Sunday.
Jaguars or Bills? – Who do you make an NFL bet on at Sbg global in this game? Do you trust the Jaguars on the road with David Garrard or do you go with the rotten Bills at home? Bettors seem to prefer taking a Jacksonville team that at least has won this season rather than hoping that the Bills break their losing streak. The Jaguars and Bills have split their last 10 meetings. A year ago it was the type of game you would expect as the Jaguars won an ugly 18-15 game at home. The Jags and Bills have met in each of the past four seasons with each team winning twice. The Bills have covered three of the four games including last year. The last two meetings between the two teams have gone under the NFL betting total.
