NFL betting fans are starting to take notice of the Buffalo Bills as a team that has not packed it in for the season and one that can bring plenty of NFL gambling board value.
The Buffalo Bills will host the Pittsburgh Steelers with a telecast on CBS which is set to kickoff at 1:05 PM ET. Sports-Gambling opened with Pittsburgh as a 6 point favorite and an over/under of 42.5. The Steelers will need to bring their “A” game to this one as the Bills offense has ignited after slumbering for the first half of the season.
The Pittsburgh Steelers have a record of 7-3 straight up and 6-4 with the NFL gambling odds and they have an even 5-5 split with over/unders this year. Pittsburgh is coming off a 35-3 bounceback home win over the Oakland Raiders last week that followed a 39-26 home loss to New England on Sunday Night Football.
The Steelers have split their last 4 games and are in a first place tie with Baltimore in the AFC North. The Steelers defense continues to be the foundation of the team as it ranks 5th overall in the NFL and 3rd for points allowed.
The offense has been inconsistent and ranks only 22nd overall as the passing attack ranks 21st. Running back Rashard Mendenhall has been the top performer with 811 yards rushing and 8 touchdowns.
The Buffalo Bills are riding a two game betting on NFL football winning streak and have a record of 2-8 straight up and 5-4-1 against the spread with an even 5-5 split on over/under. The Bills are coming off an impressive 49-31 comeback win at Cincinnati last week as they rallied from a 31-14 halftime deficit.
Buffalo ranks 24th for total offense and 25th for total defense. Ryan Fitzpatrick has improved at quarterback after initially starting the season as the backup. Say this for coach Chan Gailey; his players haven’t quit.
Pittsburgh has all of the obvious NFL betting advantages in this game and should be ready and take the Bills seriously thanks to Buffalo’s recent success. The Steelers had a nice rebound last week but must prove that they can be a consistent value on the board.
