Odds taken Mar. 25
Some are straight up matchups, while others come equipped with spreads.
Bills Should Pay Off
When it comes to dominance, nothing compares to the crushingly one-sided onslaught of watching the New England Patriots run roughshod over the Buffalo Bills. Since Week 16 of the 2000 NFL regular-\ season, the Patriots are 35-4 straight up against the Bills.
On top of that, you have to go back to that 2000 season to find a campaign where the Bills completed the year with more wins than the Patriots. Buffalo was 8-8 in 2000, while New England was 5-11.
That was also the year that Bill Belichick took over as head coach of the Patriots. As well, the team selected quarterback Tom Brady with the 199th pick in the NFL Draft prior to the season.

The Belichick-Brady tandem proved to be kryptonite to the Bills. This season, though, half of New England’s magic elixir of succession has evaporated. Brady left and signed as a free agent with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
Suddenly, it feels like there’s about to be a change in the landscape at the top of the AFC East. The Bills gave the Pats everything they could handle last season. Although New England won both games – 16-10 at Buffalo and 24-17 at Gillette Stadium – the final scores offered indication that the 10-6 Bills were closing the gap.
Tom Brady leaving the Patriots is a moment in NFL history.
Now the AFC East is open for the first time in 20 years. Have to love what the Bills and Dolphins have done.
Buffalo is obviously ahead of Miami, but both teams are young and led by smart front offices.

Buffalo QB Josh Allen has another year of experience at the helm. The Bills added wide receiver Stefon Diggs to make their offense that much more dangerous. They already suited up one of the NFL’s best defenses. As well, the Bills beefed up their special teams during free agency.
Offensively, the Patriots were mediocre last season. They were especially vulnerable against top teams. And now they’ve watched their on-field general depart the stage.
Pick: Buffalo Bills (+125).
Rivers Runs With Colts
The Los Angeles Chargers also bid adieu to their long-time QB after 16 seasons. Rivers signed a free-agent deal with the Colts.
He left a team that went 5-11 to move to a club that was 7-9. Both the Chargers and Colts are a year removed from AFC playoff appearances. But for the Chargers, it seems like they’re much further removed from being a postseason contender.
Rivers wasn’t the only key departure who bolted the Bolts. Running back Melvin Gordon, a 1,000-yard rusher in 2017 who’s found the end zone 47 times over the past four seasons, left for the Denver Broncos.
Philip Rivers is heading to Indy.
— Bleacher Report (@BleacherReport) March 17, 2020
At this stage, the Chargers look set to select a QB in the NFL Draft and ride the rapids next season with a rookie in charge of the offense. Rivers moves to an Indy squad that suits up 1,000-yard rusher Marlon Mack in the backfield and lists TY Hilton at wide receiver. To an already solid defense the Colts added pass rush specialist DeForest Buckner from the NFC champion San Francisco 49ers.
Indy opened last season 5-2 before stumbling. The Colts beat the Super Bowl champion Kansas City Chiefs and the AFC finalist Tennessee Titans.
Pick: Indianapolis Colts (-155).
Chicago Is Bear-ly Breathing
The Bears thought drafting Mitchell Trubisky made more sense than selecting Patrick Mahomes or Deshaun Watson, both playoff QBs last year. They think they can solve their issues under center by adding Nick Foles because apparently, the Bears don’t have access to Jacksonville Jaguars game film from the 2019 NFL season.
Nick Foles has gone from Philly to St Louis to Kansas City back to Philly to Jacksonville and now to Chicago in the span of seven years. Won a little Super Bowl MVP in there.
Weirdest. Career. Ever.

The Packers jumped from six to 13 wins a year ago, so maybe it’s logical to expect a bit of regression in Year 2 under head coach Matt LaFleur. But they’ll still be better than the Bears.
Pick: Green Bay Packers -1 (+100).
Let's have fun and keep it civil.
