It’s been a while since the odds to win the AFC East started the year without the New England Patriots at the top. But there you have it – the Buffalo Bills at +120. We break down divisional odds in the more-competitive-than-ever AFC East at BetRivers Sportsbook.
Buffalo Bills (+120)
The Bills haven’t won this division since 1995 but are well-positioned following their first double-digit-win season of the century. Quarterback Josh Allen has sky-high potential and he now has star wide receiver Stefon Diggs to work with. In fact, it’s hard to find a weak spot on this roster. Still, there’s a lot of room for a lot to go wrong and it wouldn’t be shocking if they fell on their face again.
New England Patriots (+130)
The Bills lead the way mainly because the Patriots have been gutted by the departures of Tom Brady, Jamie Collins Sr., Kyle Van Noy and COVID-19 opt-out decisions from Dont’a Hightower and Marcus Cannon. And this is a team that went 4-5 to finish the 2019 campaign. It’s ridiculous that they’re still nearly favored to win the East.
