We have not issued an NFL Odds Upset Watch selection since Week 12 when we lost on the Lions, who were getting 7.5 points from the Patriots in New England, but we are back again this weekend. In our cross-hairs are the Buffalo Bills, who will play host to the red hot Green Bay Packers. Buffalo, according to the latest NFL Predictions Week 15 from Sports Betting Online, are getting 4.5 points from Aaron Rodgers and company; we like them to cover that number and push the Pack to the brink in this inter-conference clash at Ralph Wilson Stadium.
Green Bay Packers vs Buffalo Bills (+4.5, Over/Under 50): The Packers offense has been incredible most of the season, but it has been nearly unstoppable since the team’s Week 9 bye, averaging 40.2 points per game. Green Bay has feasted on some poor defenses during its recent run, though, facing Chicago, Philadelphia and Atlanta, which rank 28th, 24th and 32nd in yards per game allowed, respectively. The Packers also played all three of those teams at Lambeau, where they have scored 31 or more points in every game save one.
However, Green Bay has not been as prolific on the road, where it is 3-3 and averaging a modest 22.5 points per contest. The Packers had an especially difficult time in Seattle and Detroit, where they faced two of the league’s better defenses.
Green Bay totaled 478 yards in those two games, and it suffered 36-16 and 19-7 losses as a result. It will face a similar defense to those it encountered in Seattle and Detroit when it battles the Bills on Sunday.
Buffalo ranks fifth in yards per game allowed (311.9), fourth in points per game allowed (18.5), fifth in pass defense (212.8) and first in quarterback sacks. The Bills have also won their last three home games, outscoring the Vikings, Jets and Browns by a combined score of 81-29.
In other words, the Packers are on notice and they should expect nothing less than a punch in the mouth come Sunday.
NFL Betting Trend: The Bills are 4-1 against the spread in their last five games playing as a home dog coming off a road loss.
