NFL Betting Preview for October 10 - Jacksonville Jaguars (-1) vs. Buffalo Bills

 Jacksonville Jaguars (-1) vs. Buffalo Bills For two consecutive weeks the Buffalo Bills defense has allowed 38 points against. The betting world has watched as the Bills dropped their first four games of the season. As bad as the Bills have played, they were only blown out of two of those first four games. If the offense could have put up an extra touchdown in the Miami and New England games, we could be talking about a 2-2 Bills team.

The Jacksonville Jaguars shocked the entire NFL football betting world when they beat the Indianapolis Colts in week four. A last-second 59-yard field goal by Jaguars kicker Josh Scobee got Jacksonville their first win of the season, and made the Colts look very beatable. Now that the Houston Texans look like the team to beat in the AFC South, the Jaguars bring their momentum to Western New York to face the Buffalo Bills.

The key for the Bills in this game is to focus on the things they do well on offense.

Quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick is very good at finding open receivers; those receivers just need to get better at catching the ball. The Bills have a three-headed monster at running back that consists of Marshawn Lynch, Fred Jackson and rookie C.J. Spiller. If the Bills offensive line can figure out how to open up some holes against the Jacksonville defense, then the Bills running backs should be able to put up some big numbers.

The online football betting experts have the Jaguars as favorites in this game, but only by one point. The Bills have shown that they can exploit a weak secondary like the one that plays in Jacksonville. The New England Patriots have a young and inexperienced secondary, and the Bills put up 30 points on the Patriots. The Bills offense will use the same approach in this game against Jacksonville, and the results should be similar.

The Jaguars defense gave up 352 passing yards to Peyton Manning, but they shut down running back Joseph Addai in Jacksonville’s win over the Colts. The linebackers and secondary for the Jaguars were able to focus on the running game because Addai is a straight-ahead runner. The Bills offer three runners with three very different running styles. Fred Jackson is a straight-ahead kind of runner, Lynch is a bowling ball that runs people over and Spiller has tremendous speed to the outside. A diverse attack like this will give the Jags problems all day long.

When making your Northbet for this game, remember that it took a 59-yard field goal from Josh Scobee to beat the Colts. With the winds and weather in Western New York, it is a safe guess that Scobee will not be kicking a 59-yard game-winning field goal in Buffalo. The Jags will have to rely on their running game to win this contest, and the advantage at running back for this game definitely goes to the Buffalo Bills.

Pick: Buffalo Bills 21-17
