Bills vs Jets Prediction & Pick

The Bills will likely be favored in every game down the stretch, making it tough to pick out when, if at all, they will be upset. This is definitely not one of those games, though. Buffalo is 5-1 straight up in its last six games against New York and won both head-to-head meetings last year by at least 17 points.

Buffalo is rolling on offense in every facet of the game. The rank second in points per game (29.0), first in passing yards per game (307.7) and eighth in yards per carry (5.0). The Jets simply don't have the talent to keep up on the scoreboard, especially after losing running back Breece Hall to an injury.

Final Score Prediction: Bills: 28 | Jets: 16

- The total has hit the under in four of the Jets' last six games against Buffalo.

Bills vs Jets Best Bet

Backing any team in the NFL to win by almost two touchdowns is risky, so shifting gears to the point total is the best move here. The under has hit in each of Buffalo's last five games, in six of New York's last nine games and in four of the last six head-to-head meetings between the Bills and Jets as well.

Both of these defenses rank among the top eight in terms of total DVOA rating and are giving up less than 20 points per game. That is the definition of dominance. Even if this game turns into a blowout, the Jets have not shown enough firepower on offense to even score garbage time touchdowns.

Bet: Under 47.5 Points (-115)
