Eagles-Bills Line

The Eagles-Bills line had opened at -3 in favor of visiting Philadelphia and the betting public seemed to like that spread with backing around 65 percent by Saturday afternoon. 

“For all of the talk about a potential ‘Dream Team’ in Philadelphia, perhaps it was the expectations that were too high for this team,” notes Tony Bryant of BetOnline.com.  “The Eagles have a ton of talent at the skill positions, but where they are lacking is at the frontlines and in the trenches, where too many games are won and lost. That is where the Bills have found their improbable success early on this year, who now look to bounce back after their first loss of the season.”

Why Philadelphia is favored in this game is anybody’s guess as they only have one win versus Buffalo having only one loss and three wins.

Bryant notes:  “Regardless of how talented the Eagles are at the skill positions, the fact remains that in order to win in this league you need to be able to stop the run. Philadelphia’s defense has yet to prove that they can slow opponents down on the ground, and if they can’t hold up against Jackson and company in Buffalo, then Eagles’ fans will be in for another long afternoon.”
