Expert Prediction and Betting Pick
I haven’t seen a single thing out of either one of these teams that makes me think there’s going to be any competent defense being played. Having said that, I think the best play for this matchup is a pick for the Over 38.5 total points. Both, E.J. Manuel and Dan Orlovsky are pretty decent quarterbacks that could likely start for a handful of teams leading me to believe both veteran backups will put up their fair share of points. Play the Over!
