Back the Bills to cover the points spread in the live Sunday evening clash.
New England Patriots at Buffalo Bills – Sunday 17:00, Sky Sports 1
Two familiar foes line up in Sunday’s third live offering from the NFL when the New England Patriots travel the relatively short distance to Buffalo to face off against the Bills. The Patriots won in Pittsburgh last week to take their record to 6-1 for the season, but their one blemish so far was at home to this week’s opponents when Buffalo were able to shut the Patriots out, winning 16-0. The Bills took advantage of a Pats side without Tom Brady then, who holds an irrepressible 25-3 record over them. With the star QB back in action we expect a different outcome this time round.
The Bills lost last week in Miami to halt what was an impressive run of four straight wins and they’ll be desperate to beat the Patriots again and claim a season sweep over them, a feat not achieved by any side in 15 years.
It’s hard to get away from a backlash inspired New England win here but it could be closer than the points spread suggests, the Bills took their eye off the Dolphins last week preparing for this one and we think they can cover the points spread.
