Betting market: Sharps on Buffalo?! After opening on the key number of -3, the Bills are all the way up to -5.5.

Our betting percentages reveal that 76% of the cash is backing Buffalo at the time of writing after that beautiful backdoor cover vs. Brady & Belichick (see live betting data here).

The over/under has also seen sharp activity, as steam hit the over at 38.5. Though bets are split, the over is seeing 68% of the money and it’s up to 39.5 now after opening at 38. —Mark Gallant

Weather report: The temperature will be hovering right around freezing, with wind speeds of about 12 mph. No precipitation is in the forecast, though, so unfortunately Buffalo will not yield one of those snowstorms like it did for the Colts game in 2017. —Mark Gallant

Draft order: A win would almost certainly knock Buffalo outside of the top 10 in the 2019 draft.

Miami currently holds the 15th pick, and even if the Dolphins lose to the Bills, they’d need losses from Atlanta, Carolina, Denver, Cincinnati and/or Green Bay to move up the board.

It’s a longshot they’ll work their way into the top 10. Scott T. Miller

Did you know? This is just the 14th total to be listed at less than 40 points this season. For perspective, from 2003-07 there were 531 games (more than 100 games a season) with over/under of less than 40 points.

This year the over is 8-5 in games with totals of 39.5 fewer points. — John Ewing
