NFL betting odds handicappers questioned why Jauron was brought back after such a poor football betting performance by the Bills last year. Jauron has not had much success against the NFL betting odds during his time in Buffalo, which is reflective of his time as head coach of the Chicago Bears where he was also a football betting loser.
In 2006 the Bills went 7-9 straight up and a strong 10-6 against the NFL betting odds. Jauron inherited a mess so he was given a pass for that first season in Buffalo. He had the Bills playing hard and proving to be a good value against the NFL betting odds.
In 2007 the Bills were again 7-9 straight up but again turned a profit against the NFL betting odds with a mark of 9-7 against the spread. Again, while Buffalo had a losing record fans thought that they played hard and were a young and improving team. Then, came 2008.
Last year the Bills started off a perfect 4-0 straight up and 3-1 against the NFL betting odds. This served to send expectations sky high and Buffalo collapsed under the pressure as they went 2-12 straight up the rest of the way while finishing 7-9 against the NFL betting odds.
The poor finish disgusted fans and gamblers who called for Jauron’s head but he was brought back. He has a career record of just 50-67 for a .427 win percentage. Buffalo’s main weakness against the NFL betting odds is their offense as it ranked 25th in yardage and 23rd in points scored.
Turk Schonert was offensive coordinator last year and returns as well under intense pressure to get the offensive production up to a respectable level. Quarterback Trend Edwards is currently listed as number one on the depth chart and he had an inconsistent season.
The 3 year pro from Stanford finished with an 85.4 quarterback rating and an 11/10 touchdown/interception ratio. Much more is needed in 2009.
