NFL Betting: Bills Aim For Fourth Win While AFC Gives Chase


NFL Betting PicksThe Buffalo Bills are alone at the top of the AFC at 3-0, but fans in and around Orchard Park aren’t taking anything for granted after watching their team fall behind by 21 points in each of their past two wins. The Bills will look to keep their run going this week with a short trip west to face the Cincinnati Bengals, while the rest of the NFL betting lines conference plays catch up early on.

Buffalo Bills (-3) @ Cincinnati Bengals

Sunday, 1:00 PM ET

While it is not as surprising as that they are 3-0, the fact that Buffalo is listed as only three-point favorites this week against a struggling Bengals’ team has to have turned at least a few heads, especially considering the Bills were able to overcome a powerful New England Patriots’ team a week ago. But after falling behind in each of their last two contests, there are question marks about how long Buffalo will be able to overcome those early struggles, and they will look to avoid another slow start this sports betting week against Cincinnati. The Bills’ rushing attack ranks fourth in the NFL with running back Fred Jackson setting the tone on the ground with 303 rushing yards and three touchdowns through three wins, and he and CJ Spiller are averaging 6.4 and 8.2 yards per carry respectively. Quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick continues to produce but will need to do a better job with not turning the ball over.

NFL Betting Pick: Buffalo Bills - 3

Tennessee Titans @ Cleveland Browns (-1)

Sunday, 1:00 PM ET

The Titans are perfect through two home games, but they did lose to Jacksonville in their lone road game so far this season, and Cleveland has looked good in consecutive wins. The Browns have done a good job of bending but not breaking defensively, but they need to do a better job against the run after allowing an average of 128.7 yards per game through three contests. Tennessee hasn’t been able to get its running game going, with a league-worst average of 51.7 yards through three games, with Chris Johnson earning just 2.1 yards per carry. The Titans will need to get their rushing game going if they are going to have any chance at contending in the AFC this season, and it begins this NFL betting picks week against Cleveland.

NFL Betting Pick: Tennessee Titans +1

Pittsburgh Steelers @ Houston Texans (-4)

Sunday, 1:00 PM ET

The Steelers survived a close fishing games outing against the Indianapolis Colts on Sunday Night Football even without Peyton Manning in the lineup, because they continued to struggle with turnovers. Pittsburgh has the weapons to keep this one close, but unless they can do a better job of securing the ball and not turning it over, they will have a hard price per head time getting a win on the road against a talented Texans’ team.

NFL Betting Pick: Pittsburgh Steelers + 4
