 NFL Week 8 Sports Betting Image hosted by Payneinsider.comBuffalo (4-3) at New York (1-6)

Current Line: Jets -3, 40

Analysis: This line opened Jets -2.5 (-120), and quickly jumped to NYJ -3, with professionals buying the Jets up to the most important number in the NFL. The total has been bet down off a key total number of 41, which seems to be a reasonable spot for the Bills and Jets; two teams whom excel on the defensive side of the ball, ranking 4th and 7th in opponents yards per play, and struggle offensively, ranking 25th and 31st, respectively. The Bills are coming off an emotional high, winning in the final seconds at home vs. the Vikings. Although they grabbed the victory, they lost the services of RB’s Jackson and Spiller. While the running back position is not of high value in today’s NFL, the loss of a leader like Jackson stings. Buffalo’s porous offensive line facing arguably the best front 4 football spells a long day for Kyle Orton and company. The Jets have added rest time, and despite the poor record, should be ready to go for this one.
