NFL Odds: Buffalo Bills vs. Green Bay Packers Predictions

NFL Odds to Win - Buffalo Bills @ Green Bay Packers (-13 ½)When the NFL schedule makers decided that the AFC East would play the NFC North this season, there was probably a collective groan coming from Orchard Park, NY. It is doubtful that the sports betting experts will make the Bills a favorite in any of the games against the NFC North, even the Detroit Lions.

First up for the Bills from the NFC North is the strong Super Bowl favorite Green Bay Packers. The NFL betting lines makers want it understood, in no uncertain terms, that the Bills are no match for the Packers by establishing a 13 and one-half point line for this game in favor of the Packers.

The Packers looked a little shaky in their opener against the Philadelphia Eagles, but the Pack toughed it out and came out with the 27-20 win. The defense for the Packers played tough, but the offense looked a little out of sync as quarterback Aaron Rodgers threw an uncharacteristic two interceptions in one game. Green Bay was able to keep the offense moving enough and the defense was able to adjust to having Michael Vick in at quarterback after Kevin Kolb was sidelined with a concussion.

The Buffalo Bills defense came to play against the Miami Dolphins in the opening game of the season. The secondary was physical with Brandon Marshall and all of the Miami receivers, and the defensive line was able to get pressure on quarterback Chad Henne. The Bills defense looked prepared for the wildcat formation and was able to render the novelty offensive scheme powerless for the entire game.

Buffalo running back CJ Spiller was a huge factor in college football betting results, but behind a totally inept Buffalo Bills offensive line Spiller was ineffective. The Bills offense is led by quarterback Trent Edwards who lacks the ability to look downfield on a play, he is unable to sense the pressure in a blitz and he has no clue when to get rid of the ball in tough situations. From a coaching standpoint, the Bills found that the no-huddle offense was extremely effective in the fourth quarter but refused to utilize it at any other point in the game.

The 13 and one-half point football betting line for this game may be generous. The Packers may get a chance to look at some of their backups in extended game play situations in this game as this one may be over by the beginning of the second half. While the Bills secondary played well against the Dolphins, the Packers present a more formidable corps of wide receivers than the Dolphins do. If Aaron Rodgers can stay standing long enough, he should be able to dissect the Bills secondary fairly easily.

Keeping Rodgers standing will be the challenge for the Packers in this game. For everything that went wrong for the Bills against the Dolphins, they were able to blitz Chad Henne and create pressure. The Packers’ offensive line still cannot pass block effectively, and Aaron Rodgers spent much of the Philadelphia game on the turf. Rodgers was sacked 50 times last season, and the Packers look like they are on their way to matching that number this season. It may not be a problem against the Bills, but the Bears will make the Packers pay for their poor offensive line play.

Pick: Green Bay Packers 45-10
