New York Jets at Buffalo Bills Free Pick - Betting Odds - ATS Prediction
Two bitter rivals from the AFC East will square off on opening weekend as the New York Jets will take on the Buffalo Bills. The Jets defeated the Bills in both meetings in 2016 and presently own a two-game winning streak over the Bills. Kick-off is scheduled at 1:00 PM ET at Era Field at Ralph Wilson Stadium in Orchard Park, NY. The game will be broadcasted on CBS for regional audiences.
With the Jets trading away most of their talent to pick up draft picks and free up room in their salary cap, the ceiling for Gang Green is quite low in 2017. Some analysts believe that the Jets may not even win one game. On the contrary, Buffalo has higher expectations. Finishing 7-9 in 2016, the Bills are regarded as a potential dark horse for a wildcard berth in 2017. If Buffalo can improve its divisional record, the Bills may have a chance at winning upwards of 9 or 10 games.

New York Jets at Buffalo Bills Week 1 Prediction
As a whole, the Jets are a very difficult team to sell given the grisly prognostication that surrounds them. Often teams of this nature come accompanied with an inflated point number to entice action. There is a very good chance here that the Jets are taking back more than is required. While the both the quarterback and running back situation in New York remains a mystery, this is a team that knows how to win in Orchard Park. As mentioned, the Jets swept the Bills in the regular season series in 2016 and with that the Jets may have some confidence heading into this meeting. Though the Jets may be projected to own the top draft selection in the 2018 NFL Draft, all teams are 0-0 in Week 1. The Bills have a lot more to lose in this game than the Jets do. For New York, they will come into this game free-rolling. Basically, the Jets know that if they lose that was what was expected of them. If they win, it’s a feather in their cap. As a result, Buffalo will enter this game with far more pressure and thus they should not be trusted with the amount of points they are asking takers to spot here. This market sets up a great fade opportunity.
