The 2021 NFL regular season has come to an end and the playoffs are here. Things kick off this week with the AFC Wild Card Round, which includes an AFC East showdown between the New England Patriots and Buffalo Bills.

FanDuel Sportsbook has released its odds for the Patriots-Bills clash and is currently listing Buffalo as the clear home favorite.

Patriots vs Bills Odds

As of Monday, FanDuel Sportsbook is listing the Bills as the 4.5-point home favorites in their AFC Wild Card matchup. Both Buffalo and New England have -110 odds to cover the spread.

The Patriots looked like serious contenders after a sizzling 9-4 start to the season. However, a 1-3 record in their last four has left many questioning if they're actually pretenders.

Meanwhile, the Bills enter the playoffs riding a four-game winning streak after their season looked to be in jeopardy. Buffalo's offense looks to be one of the best in the NFL during that stretch, so it'll need to keep things up to continue that success into the postseason.

The two division rivals were evenly matched in their two meetings this season. The Patriots won the first game, 14-10, back in Week 13, while the Bills got revenge in Week 16 with a 33-21 victory.

FanDuel Sportsbook has also listed the Bills as having +750 odds (T-3rd) to win Super Bowl LVI. Meanwhile, the Patriots sit at +2200 (11th) to go on a championship run.
