NFL betting for Week #2 of the preseason begins on Thursday, August 14th as the Pittsburgh Steelers face the Buffalo Bills in Toronto, Canada.
The Bills will be playing a regular season game in Toronto so this will be a good preseason beginning. Week 2 NFL odds should have the Bills as the small football betting favorite in this game.
NFL betting odds will have the Bills favored in most of their games in Toronto. The NFL betting schedule shows that there will be a total of eight games played in Toronto over the next five years, five regular season games and three preseason games. "We are very excited that this is now finally a reality, to come up north and play a storied franchise in the Pittsburgh Steelers," Russ Brandon, the Bills chief operating officer, said, "Obviously, it’s not that far a drive down to Pittsburgh here and that group travels well. The Steelers and Bills have long, storied histories and it’s a great way to kick it off for the series."
NFL betting history shows that this is the Steelers’ first game in Ontario since beating the Toronto Argonauts 43-16 in an exhibition game on Aug. 3, 1960. Football betting stats show that the seating capacity for the Bills-Steelers game will be between 50,000 and 54,000, with Toronto Argos season-ticket holders receiving priority access. Football betting schedules show that the Bills will play a regular season game at Toronto on December 7th against the Miami Dolphins. The Bills should be solid NFL betting favorites in that game.
NFL betting stats show that the Bills and Steelers have met three times since 2001 in the regular season. The Steelers have won all three matchups with two of the three games going under the NFL betting total. The most recent NFL betting matchup was last year when the Steelers won at home against the Bills 26-3 as 10 point NFL betting favorites. The two other football betting wins were at Buffalo in NFL betting in 2005 and 2001.
Week 2 NFL odds should have the Bills as a slight NFL betting favorite against the Steelers since it will be like a home game for Buffalo. In Week #1 of the preseason all of the home teams were favored in NFL betting.
