At the onset of their existences the Bills and Jets have remained in the same division. Buffalo and New York were charter members of the American Football League starting in 1960. Because of this their East Division rivalry spans multiple generations. And that is not all that these teams have in common. Recent seasons have revealed these ancient competitors as among the worst in the NFL. Consequently, Buffalo and New York are two of the least appealing teams on the Pro Football betting board. Sadly, there isn’t much to indicate that’s going to change any time soon.

Not Paying the Bills
Last year Buffalo had a Pro Football betting record of 6-10 straight up and 7-9 against the spread. A solid defense that ranked second overall was undermined by a horrible offense. As an illustration the Bills offense ranked 30th in the NFL for yards and scoring. Following a wild card playoff spot in 2017 it was a disappointing setback season in Buffalo. Furthermore 2017 was the Bills only winning season since 2004. Head coach Sean McDermott now faces the hot seat. Accordingly, offensive coordinator Brian Daboll is under intense fire.
In the same way it was a season of misery for the Jets. New York finished 4-12 straight up and 5-10-1 vs. the odds. Starting with the NFL’s 29th ranked offense did problems prevail. Defensively the Jets ranked 29th for points allowed. Correspondingly head coach Todd Bowles was fired. Fired Miami coach Adam Gase arrived to take Bowles place. The Jets have one winning season since 2010.
Buffalo and NY Jets Betting Trends
Late on the Bills have been a subpar online wagering value as road dogs. Buffalo has covered only seven of their last 16 in that situation. Only one of their last seven as away pups cleared the total. By contrast the Jets have been an inconsistent home chalk. New York has paid in six of their last 16 laying points at MetLife Stadium. Just one of their last five as home favorites went under the total.
Bills vs. Jets Head to Head vs. Spread
Buffalo has been on the short end of this recent head to head series. To show, the Bills have covered only two of their last six meetings with the Jets. Three in a row have gone over the total between these two teams. Further, the Jets have paid in two of their last three at home against the Bills. Seven of the last nine between these teams at New York cleared the total.
Matchup to Watch
In this situation the Bills could prove to be a live Pro Football betting dog. Neither team stands out which means taking the points makes sense. In comparison McDermitt could well be the coaching superior to Gase. Extending the Jets misery was the bizarre hire of a coach that flopped in his first gig.
