New York Jets at Buffalo Bills

When: Sunday, September 10, 2017 at 1:00 PM ETWhere: New Era Field, Orchard Park, New YorkTV: CBSNFL Week 1 Odds: Buffalo Bills -8.5 / Total: 41Analysis: The Jets enter the season as the prohibitive favorite to get head Coach Todd Bowles fired first, but the Bills just had a fire sale that screams “we’re playing for next year.’ I’m thinking the key trends you need to know is that the Bills are just 1-4 ATS in their last 5 home games and 0-4 ATS in their last 4 games against teams from the AFC East while the underdog in this rivalry has gone 4-0 ATS in the last four meetings.

Atlanta Falcons at Chicago Bears

The Steelers are 5-1 ATS in their last 6 road games while Cleveland has gone 0-10-1 ATS in their last 11 games against their AFC North division rivals. The favorite in this series is 4-0-1 ATS in the last five meetings, but. I’ve got a funny feeling…
