If you were wondering how often the Buffalo Bills are road favorites of 5.5 points, the answer is only twice in the past 12 seasons. However, one of those magical times – when the Bills were considered the superior team and justified with such a large road number – was just last season.
And they won 37-20. In a divisional game at Miami. Same scenario this week. Which is presumably a good sign for Buffalo bettors.
The Bills dominated the Jets Week 1, with the Bills new passing offense on full display. Josh Allen threw a career high 46 times on Sunday for 312 yards and two TDs. The Bills defense also gave Sam Darnold fits all game, as the third-year starter struggled to get anything going all game.
The Miami Dolphins had their hands full with Cam Newton and the New England Patriots, falling 21-11. Miami struggled against the Patriots new rushing attack, as six different Patriots had over 20 yards rushing.
