NFL odds handicappers also saw the Minnesota Vikings improve their play last week in coach Leslie Frazier’s first game as they got the payout with the NFL lines.
The Minnesota Vikings will host the Buffalo Bills on Sunday with a kickoff scheduled for 1 PM ET. Sports-Gambling opened with Minnesota as a 3.5 point favorite with an over/under of 45. The game will be telecast on CBS.
The Buffalo Bill have a record of 2-9 straight up but 6-4-1 with the NFL gambling odds. The Bills have gone over the total just 5 times. Buffalo has paid out in 3 consecutive games and is coming off a 19-16 overtime home loss to Pittsburgh as 6.5 point dogs.
The Bills are riding a 6 game unbeaten streak against the board as they have provided exceptional betting value as a dog. Buffalo has also gone under the total in 4 out of 5 games this year. Buffalo ranks 20th in the NFL for offensive scoring and 29th for defensive points allowed.
Ryan Fitzpatrick has settled in as the starting QB with 2226 yards passing while Fred Jackson has 621 yards rushing. Steve Johnson has become a top receiver with 796 yards and 9 TD’s.
The Minnesota Vikings are coming off their most impressive performance of the season as they beat the Washington Redskins 17-13 to snap a 2 game losing streak and improve their overall record to 4-7 straight up and 3-8 with the NFL betting lines. The Vikings have gone under the total in 6 of 11 games.
The Minnesota defense, which has not lived up to billing for most of the year, still ranks a solid 9th overall in the NFL while the offense has struggled all year and ranks 20th overall and 30th for scoring.
The Bills have proven to be an enhanced bargain hunter’s delight with the NFL odds as oddsmakers improve their price to attract action in Buffalo’s direction which has been the exact opposite case for Minnesota this season.
While the Vikings did score a win it is asking a of a sloppy 4-7 team to lay double digits against a team that has played well as big dogs as of late.
