There’s a lot of social media chatter and debate about the Buffalo Bills, after Sunday’s well-deserved 29-25 loss to the 2-5 New England Patriots. The surprising result put a dent in Bills odds at Ontario sports betting sites too.
The Bills fell to 4-3; last season they had three losses over the entire season. Their offence looks out of synch and disjointed. The impact on their defence of season-ending injuries to key cogs, such as linebacker Matt Milano, cornerback Tre’Davious White and defensive tackle DaQuan Jones, was on display in the loss at Foxborough. They made Patriots quarterback Mac Jones look like Brock Purdy (272 yards passing). Going into the game, the Patriots were among the lowest in the league in points per game.
“Our season is not over,” Bills quarterback Josh Allen said. “It’s a long season. I know it feels pretty bleak right now but we’re gonna figure it out.”
What Happens Next For Bills
What about Bills future odds? A week ago at BetRivers Ontario Sportsbook, odds for the Bills to win the AFC East were 2.35, AFC 5.50, and Super Bowl 10.00 in decimal odds form. Today it’s 3.00, 7.00 and 13.00, respectively.
There are calls to fire offensive coordinator Ken Dorsey, to the point where head coach Sean McDermott had to defend him in Sunday’s post-game news conference. Slow starts on offence has been the big storyline for the Bills all season.
Are the Bills Super Bowl contenders, on the same level as the Kansas City Chiefs, Philadelphia Eagles, San Francisco 49ers? There’s a growing legion of doubters, and oddsmakers are no exception.
