Bills vs Packers Live
Buffalo opened as a 10.5-point underdog earlier in the week, but Las Vegas has shifted the line slightly to its current 9.5-point line, according to Odds Shark. Betting patterns have moved the line in Buffalo’s favor, as some may think the Bills can repeat their performance from Week 3, a monumental upset of the Minnesota Vikings. Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers is nursing a knee injury, which has limited his mobility and slightly limited his productivity. Thus, the Packers offense may not have the explosive plays that we are accustomed to seeing from Rodgers and company.
The consensus over/under line is set at 44.5 total points. The Packers offense is averaging 23.3 points per game, while their defense is allowing an average of 27.7 points per contest. Buffalo, for their part, are only averaging 16.7 points on offense while allowing an average of 28 points per game.
Both teams are 1-2 against the spread this year so little can be gained from this statistic. However, the Packers and their opponents have exceeded the over/under total points line in all three of their games.
With Buffalo’s offense finding some cohesion, along with a defense which gave them great field position and put the Bills in an easy position to get points on each drive, it looks like this game could see some high point totals once the dust settles on Sunday.
The Green Bay Packers are 1-1-1 to start the year. I don’t think the oddsmakers had the Packers having a start like this, but based on the way they have played, they are lucky they are not 0-3.
The good news is they are only half a game behind the Chicago Bears (yes, the Bears) for the NFC North lead. But after a 31-17 loss to the Washington Redskins on Sunday, the Packers have issues on both sides of the ball which needs to be corrected as soon as possible.
On offense, the run game is not up to par as the Packers only average 89 yards per game. The team did get Aaron Jones back this past Sunday and he should see more carries in Week Four vs. the Buffalo Bills. Also, the Packers are having issues with scoring in the red zone as they converted 1-of-5 attempts in Week Two vs. the Vikings and 1-of-2 attempts against the Redskins.
