Patriots Massive Road Betting Favorites against Bills for Monday Night
The New England Patriots are massive road faves against the Buffalo Bills, according to sportsbook sites. How massively do the best online sportsbooks favor the Pats? Let’s just say the Bills better start praying to St. Jude, patron saint of lost causes and desperate situations. Because they need a miracle they’re not likely to get. Tom Brady has beaten Buffalo more times (28) than any other QB has defeated any other team. New England has averaged 36 points and 338 passing yards in their last six trips to New Era Field. Additionally, the Pats are averaging 39.2 points per game in their current four-game winning streak. As for the Bills, they’re so bad the Colts of all teams blew them out 5-37. However, Buffalo is 6-2 in eight MNF games since 1989. While New England has lost three straight MNF road games.
Tom Brady has recorded a passer rating of at least 94.2 in each of the last four games. He’ll have no shortage of targets with Rob Gronkowski expected to join Julian Edelman and Josh Gordon. On the other hand, rookie running back Sony Michel is not projected to play. Michel injured his knee on Sunday and missed three days of practice.
On defense, cornerback Eric Rowe is also expected to miss the game. However, the Pats have Stephon Gilmore, Jason McCourty, JC Jackson, Jonathan Jones and Keion Crossen at corner. Moreover, even New England’s mediocre defense shouldn’t worry about Buffalo’s neutered offense. Nor should sportsbook sites users worry about the Bills covering the spread.
Journeyman QB Derek Anderson was named the Bills starter for Week 7. He threw three interceptions, perhaps as an homage to teammate Nathan Peterman. Anderson also lost a fumble and threw not a single TD. To make matters worse, running back LeSean McCoy could be ruled out for Monday. He was placed in concussion protocol and has not yet been cleared to play.
Defensively, Buffalo is better on paper than on the field. They allowed the Colts 376 total yards – 220 on the ground.
