NFL Betting Review on the Buffalo Bills for the 2020 Season

NFL Betting Review on the Buffalo Bills for the 2020 Season
Tue 16th February 2021

The Buffalo Bills proved themselves in 2020 as a team to beat. Quarterback Josh Allen and wide receiver Stefon Diggs make for one of the best duos in the sport.

Gabriel Davis could be the next star wideout in the making. The defense is also dangerous, as they produced the second-most turnovers in the league in 2020.

The Bills were even better than what the sportsbooks expected out of them in 2020. This NFL betting review shows that the Bills were one of the most effective teams in the sport last season. The club’s high-power offense helped the team become one of the most appealing in the sport.

Spread Performance

The sportsbooks likely did not expect the Bills to finish with a 13-3 record. The Bills had an 11-5 record against the spread, with the team quickly becoming the favorite to win late in the season.

The Bills had the second-best offense in the league with 31.3 points per game. The team also had one of the largest margins in the league by giving up 23.4 points per game.

The Bills were on fire after their bye week, as they won all six of their regular season games after that break. The club also won against the spread in all six of those matches.

The spreads were relatively low, as the Bills won by double-digits in all those matches. The highest spread was a -7 mark against the New England Patriots. The Bills had a 38-9 victory there.

The sportsbooks still didn’t respect the Bills late in the season, as they were a +3.5 underdog against the Miami Dolphins in the final game of the regular season. The Bills won that game 56-26.

Over/Under Performance

The Buffalo Bills’ high-flying offense led to the team amassing a 10-5-1 record on the over/under. The Bills averaged nearly 400 yards of offense per game, plus they have the third-best passing game with about 290 yards per match. The Bills scored fewer than 25 points only six times this season.

In another instance of the sportsbooks underestimating the Bills, the team’s over/under values were under fifty points for much of the season. There were a few exceptions, like their game against the Arizona Cardinals where there was a 56 total. The Cardinals won that game 32-30 in what would be the Bills’ last regular season loss.

The Bills had a mixed bag of results in the playoffs, as they went under in the wild card round with a 17-3 win over the Baltimore Ravens and over after losing 38-24 to the Kansas City Chiefs. But the Bills showed that the team’s powerful offense makes it a worthwhile option for over bets.

What to See in 2021

The Buffalo Bills will continue to circle the wagons in 2021 as Allen, Diggs, Davis, and many other high-value stars will keep the offense running. The fact that offensive coordinator Brian Daboll is sticking around despite being a prominent head coaching candidate also helps.

The Bills have the third-best odds to win Super Bowl LVI. They have a +1100 line to win the big game. The club also holds a -170 line to win the AFC East title, putting them well ahead of Miami at +280 and New England at +480.

The Bills also have a favorable schedule with games against the AFC South and NFC South. The team will compete against clubs that might have quarterback issues, including the Indianapolis Colts, the Houston Texans, and the New Orleans Saints.

Expect the Buffalo Bills to be a great option for NFL betting in 2021. The Bills have high hopes of bringing a Super Bowl victory to Orchard Park in 2021.
