The Green Bay Packers and Buffalo Bills are set to face off in Week 8's Sunday Night Football game in Buffalo. These two teams were both considered Super Bowl contenders at the start of the season, but they have taken different paths since then.
Buffalo remains the Super Bowl favorite at +250, according to FanDuel Sportsbook's latest Super Bowl odds, holding a 5-1 record and leading the AFC East. The Packers, on the other hand, sit at 3-4 and in second place in the NFC North. They have also seen their Super Bowl odds drop to +3300.
Trend are an important tool for bettors looking to find an edge when wagering on a game. Sunday's game is no different, and there are some really strong trends heading into this one. There's just one issue, they contradict each other, so something has to give.
Not only are these trends strong, they are all absolutes, so one of these trends will deliver its first loss.
Based on how the two teams seasons are going the conventional wisdom would say the Bills will come away with the win, that and the 10.5-point spread that favors them. But then you have Rodgers who hasn't lost his last 13 primetime games, so maybe that is good enough to take the Packers with the points if you're not comfortable going all in on the moneyline.
Up to this point, none of these trends have delivered a loss -- but on Sunday, one will.
