Betting market: Surprisingly enough, the Jets-Bills game boasts some of the most interesting betting activity on this weekend’s slate. At the time of writing the Bills — yes the Bills! — are getting more than 70% of spread bets as the favorite (see live betting data here).

Pro bettors aren’t buying into the hype, though, as the Jets are getting about 51% of the cash.

Since opening, Buffalo has fallen from -4 to -3 thanks to that money discrepancy and a bet signal on the Jets. — Mark Gallant

Weather report: This is one of several games on the week that will have temperatures right around freezing. No high winds or precipitation is expected, though. —Mark Gallant

Trends to know: Jets-Bills is the coldest game in Week 14. The forecast calls for average temperatures during the game of 26 degrees.

Many bettors think cold temperatures lead to low-scoring games but that’s not true. Since 2003, in games played in cold temperatures (32 degrees or cooler) the over has gone 139-119-5 (54%), per our Bet Labs data.

If the over/under is 45 points or fewer, the over has been even more profitable. — John Ewing

The Jets are coming off their worst passing game in terms of yardage in 2018, and they now hit the road to face the Bills, who are allowing just 187.2 passing yards per game, which is the best mark in the NFL.
