Monday Night Football features the New England Patriots on the road to take on the Buffalo Bills to complete an exciting Week 13 in the NFL.
Our team of experts at VSiN has the game covered from all angles, with a market report from South Point oddsmaker Chris Andrews, along with a pick on the game from VSiN's Wes Reynolds and Ben Brown from Pro Football Focus.
New England Patriots at Buffalo Bills (-3, 41)
Market Report from Chris Andrews: I opened Buffalo -3. After taking a lot of play on the Patriots, I dropped to Buffalo -2.5. I also took respected money-line bets on the Patriots at + 135 and + 130 to win outright. After the drop to Buffalo -2.5, bettors preferring the Bills were thrilled to lay less than a field goal. This is another game where the South Point’s “no extra juice” policy on NFL team sides will drive a very high handle. Most stores will vary their vig at either 2.5 or 3. We’ll be offering 11/10 whether we’re at 2.5 or 3. I’m interested to see if a more certain weather forecast on game day drives money in one direction or the other. Weather expectations caused a big drop in the total. My opener of 45 is all the way down to 42.5, and that will fall further if winds prove to be as gusty Monday as forecast.
Reynolds: An anti-public favorite in prime time on Monday Night Football here as the underdog Patriots have taken all the early support and have been touted by the national media all week. They will continue to be pumped up due to a 6-0 SU and ATS winning streak.
