Eagles vs Bills 2019 NFL Week 8 Odds, Game Info & Prediction

Written by on October 23, 2019

Over the years, we have become accustomed to seeing more than our fair share of surprises in the NFL. We are not just talking about the weekly games here, but also entire seasons. Teams expected to be among the favorites end up struggling, much as the Cleveland Browns are doing this year, while a team expected to be in the middle of the pack suddenly comes to life and emerges as a real dark horse. When the latter situation occurs, we very often spend a good chunk of the season waiting for that team to return to normal and fall of the pace, and while that does sometimes happen, there are other instances when they continue to excel and win.

That is where we are right now with the Buffalo Bills, a team that is presently exceeding all expectations, not that they were particularly high, to begin with. The Bills are rolling in the early going, but they will have another tough one coming this weekend when they welcome the Philadelphia Eagles to town. The Bills are in as a slight 2-point favorite for this one, with the point total set at 43 ½.

Why bet on the Philadelphia Eagles?

It’s easy to forget that the Philadelphia are just a couple of seasons removed from winning the Super Bowl, especially considering how poorly they have started the season. The Eagles come into this one at 3-4 SU on the year, with the only saving grace being that they are in a tight divisional race with the Dallas Cowboys. The downside to that is that their last games was a loss to the Cowboys, so the Eagles have already dug themselves into a little bit of a hole, albeit with plenty of time to get out.

On the bright side of things, the Eagles are 8-1 SU in their last 9 games versus AFC foes, as well as being 7-1 ATS in their last 8 meetings with teams from the AFC East. On the flipside, they are just 2-6 ATS in their last 8 games versus Buffalo.

Why bet on the Buffalo Bills?

As mentioned earlier, the Bills are easily surpassing all expectations and very much look like a playoff candidate at the moment. They come into Week 8 of the season boasting a 5-1 record, with their lone loss of the year coming at the hands of the unbeaten New England Patriots. Despite their success, the bookies seem unwilling to put a lot of stock in those wins, putting them on the board as a 2-point favorite at home against a team that is struggling to get going this season.

Eagles vs Bills is going to be a close one.

Perhaps it’s because the Bills are only managing 18 PPG thus far, but this is also a team that is giving up just 14 PPG. Perhaps unsurprisingly, the Bills have seen the UNDER hit in 5 of their last 6. Over the last 8 games, Buffalo has gone 6-2 ATS.
