Bet on the NFL The Top of the AFC East, the New England Patriots, who are very much contenders for the Super Bowl title this year, will take on the worst team in the NFL this Holiday weekend.
It’s like the NFL handed the Pats a Christmas gift, saying, “here, take it easy this weekend boys.” The Pats hold a 12-2-0 record, soon to be 12-3-0 after this Sunday night. The Buffalo Bills, who host the Holiday matchup this weekend, represent the opposite end of the AFC East spectrum, the bottom, where they hold court with a 4-10-0 record going into Week 17 of the 2010 NFL betting regular season.
Even though the New England Patriots are coming off a win last weekend, coach Belichick is not getting laxy-daisy with his team. He spent time studying the tapes and has reportedely discovered struggles with both coaching and inconsistencies with his team. The Patriots clinched a playoff berth with their victory against the Bears Dec. 12. A win Sunday against the Bills would give the Patriots the AFC East title and the No. 1 seed in the conference.
Online Sportsbook lists the Patriots as the minus 8 point road favorites this weekened, with the total over under at 44 points.
In recent Buffalo news, the Bills are coming off a big win last weekend vs. the Miami Dolphins at home. When betting on football take note: Buffalo (4-10) won for the fourth time in six games after starting 0-8, while Miami (7-7) lost for the eighth time in nine home games over the past two seasons. This year Miami is 1-6 at home and 6-1 on the road, and no NFL team has ever had such a disparity. Bettors should also take note: the Bills have nothing to lose and will be putting everything on the line this weekend. I think we all know what we’ll find at the top of the Bills Christmas wish lists this year: a solid showing vs. the New England Patriots.
