Live Betting: Packers vs. Bills game analysis

The Packers were able to win nine out of the last 10 meetings that they played SU, and the team is 7-3 ATS in that time. However, as Green Bay are in an effort to secure a title in the division and get a first-round bye (a least) in the NFC playoff games, live betting services can see that this week they’re set to face what could turn out to be a very difficult challenge when they square off with the Bills, who are 7-6, at Ralph Wilson Stadium.
The betting line opened with the Packers being the favorites by six points, and 48 was the total.
On Monday night, Green Bay were able to beat the Falcons 43-37, and this season, this would turn out to be the sixth time that they were able to score 38 points – at least. The Packers had a lead of 31-7 at halftime, and from there the team effectively held off a rally by the Falcons.
QB Aaron Rodgers threw the ball for 327 yards with three TD’s, Jordy Nelson’s very nice season continued as the player caught the ball eight times for 146 yards with two TDS’ – then Eddie Lacy ran for 73 yards and John Starks for 75.
The cover was given up by the Packers as the favorites by 13 points, letting the Falcons score in the fourth quarter on three occasions. At 10-3, the Packers have the NFC’s second seed, and they’re only behind a top-seeded Cardinals side.
Buffalo were beaten by the Broncos 24-17, but now they have a winning streak of 3-0 ATS. The Bills won possession time by a margin of 33/27, were able to outgain Denver 415-306, and for the very first time in more than three seasons were able to hold QB Peyton Manning without a pass for TD.
However, the team paid a price due to three turnovers. Because of this, Buffalo only have a ranking of 22nd place when it comes to total offense, but in total defense they’re fifth place, and against the run they’re eighth. At 7-6, The Bills are just one meeting behind the leader in their fight to get a second spot in the AFC Wild Cards.
Buffalo could give Green Bay problems on the field, as their defense is one to reckon with. The team also has an OK running game, and they have a margin of over nine turnovers. Also, the Packers’ defense is a susceptible one.
For this matchup, live betting services believe that even though Buffalo could surprise Green Bay, the team to go for should be the Packers.
