Bills Being Disrespected by Monday Night Football Odds Against 49ers
The Buffalo Bills are rolling. They've won four of their last five games to move to 8-3 on the season, and they're well on their way to winning the AFC East for the first time since 1995.
They still can't seem to get the respect they deserve, however. Taking on the 5-6 San Francisco 49ers in a game being played at a neutral site in Arizona, the Bills are somehow 1-point underdogs according to FanDuel Sportsbook's latest Week 13 NFL odds.
The 49ers came to play last week, upsetting their division rivals in the Los Angeles Rams. That remains their only win since October, however. It is also one of only two wins they hold over teams that currently sport a winning record.
The Bills' three losses, on the other hand, have come against teams that currently hold a combined 25-11 record.
Even Football Outsiders' DVOA metrics, which suggest the 49ers may be better than their record indicates, have Buffalo as the league's 11th-best team, while the 49ers rank No. 14.
Buffalo's +2200 odds to win the Super Bowl rank No. 8 in the NFL, but the odds for Week 13's Monday Night Football matchup clearly show they're still not getting the respect they deserve as legitimate contenders.
