Coming off their Week 11 bye, the Buffalo Bills (7-3) host the Los Angeles Chargers (3-7) this weekend in upstate New York.
But while these two teams currently sit at the opposite ends of their respected divisions, this game is shaping up to be quite the offensive spectacle.
Here are my favourite bets for this weekend’s match-up between the Chargers and Bills.
Spread Full Time
As we learn each and every week in the National Football League, anything can happen. But this game at least on paper, looks like one of the more lop-sided games of this weekend’s slate. And yes, Justin Herbert has been playing incredible football. But they’ve still been unable to prove they can compete with the AFC’s elite. Which is exactly what the Buffalo Bills are.
I expect Sean McDermott’s defence to confuse Herbert in the way Brian Flores attacked the rookie signal-caller two weeks prior. But for as impressive as Buffalo’s defence has been over the last several years, it’s the offence this year that has been most remarkable.
Buffalo is going to score a lot of points and should win this one convincingly.
Bet |Buffalo Bills -4.5 (1.91)
If you’d like, I would piggyback this bet with the over which is currently set at 52.5
Bonus Bet | Over 52.5 (1.92)
Justin Herbert Passing Touchdowns
What Justin Herbert is on pace to do this season in Los Angeles has never been done in the history of football. Herbert has thrown for 2,699 yards, 22 touchdowns, and 6 interceptions this season. Unfortunately, those godly numbers haven’t reflected on the win column. But one thing you can almost guarantee any time Herbert steps out onto the field, is that a big play is inevitable.
Herbert is going to have those opportunities whether it’s early on in the game or in garbage time.
Bet | Justin Herbert over 1.5 passing TDs (1.54)
Total Team Points Full Time
The theme of this article has been that I expect this game to be a high-powered affair. And since I ultimately believe that the Buffalo Bills will cover the spread and this game will hit the over, why not triple down on this and take the Buffalo Bills at Over 29.5.
Josh Allen is still hanging around the MVP race and with #1 wide receiver Stefon Diggs having a monster year, the sky is the limit for Buffalo’s offense moving forward.
Bet | Buffalo Bills Over 28.5 (1.86)
