Let’s talk about the Buffalo Bills. 2020 was a tremendous season for them. They made it to the AFC title game after bouncing the red-hot Ravens with a big home crowd on hand. They made it happen, just a win away from the Super Bowl and their best season since 1999.
But now, entering into 2021, they have pressure to win. Josh Allen is clearly a winner, so they have got plenty of good options here. That being said, they will be expected to take that next step and make it to the final game of the NFL campaign. With all that in mind, let’s take a look at the Buffalo Bills and try to predict their record for the upcoming season so you can bet against their NFL Team Totals odds.
Buffalo Bills Win/Loss Betting Odds and Prediction for the 2021-22 Season
What to Expect from Buffalo
The team should do a lot of winning. Stefon Diggs and Allen have such great chemistry on the field that is very clear. The one issue here, though, is that the run game is still not so good. Allen was their leading rusher through the three playoff games, which is only acceptable for a team like Baltimore in the modern game.
They need to diversify their offense while getting just a little more from their D. Believe it or not, it was a big Chad Henne play that kept the team out of the Super Bowl. We’re talking about a career backup that got thrust into the AFC Championship and made a big play. A tale as old as time.
When all is said and done, this group should be able to carve out a lot of victories.
OVER/UNDER: 10.5 WINS
With the year marking the start of the 17-game schedule in the NFL, teams will be playing one more game, and so a longer season is expected. They will be doing so without actually adding another bye week, which is a bit selfish for the money-grabbing and player safety.
The guys will have an extra week, with the preseason cut in half. The Bills are supposed to be great once again, and they most likely will be. So many guys on the team can make big plays, and they should be taken seriously. Even if Cole Beasley simply refuses to get his vaccine, he should be a high-impact player for them.
The defense is full of solid pass-rushers, and the sack totals should climb from the surprisingly low area it was in 2020. The team has a great coach and good coaches across the board. Winning is what we all expect them to do. So, they’ll do it.
Projecting Buffalo’s Win-Loss Totals
Regardless of the opponent, no easy matchup exists for any team lining up with the Bills. They will make it hard on all 17 teams that they see. And within the six divisional games, a 4-2 record is likely the worst they will finish. They could pretty easily sweep the Jets while potentially going 2-0 against either New England or Miami.
11 wins is a good number for Buffalo. They are not a perfect team, but a darn good one. They will beat some teams that are better than them and lose to some who are worse because that’s what pro football is.
Anything can happen, but 11-6 is the 2021 Bills prediction here.
