Bills Fire Offensive Coordinator 

BUFFALO, NY (Gambling911.com) - Following a loss to the Denver Broncos Monday night, the Bills had little choice but to fire offensive coordinator Ken Dorsey on Tuesday night.  The team, an early favorite to win the Super Bowl, now sit at 5-5.

“We need to be a confident offensive football team, and find consistent production, and that’s really what it came down to,” head coach Sean McDermott said. “I’m as frustrated as anyone out there. We’re trying to win one game at a time right now, and we get a chance to right the ship.”

The Bills only have five days to prepare for their division rivals, the 4-5 Jets. 

“There’s never a good time to do it, right?” McDermott said in defense of the timing in letting Dorsey go. “I always want to do what’s best for the team, and felt like this was needed right now.”

Buffalo is still very much in the AFC East hunt with Miami one game ahead and also struggling after a more promising start to the season. 

The public still had confidence in Buffalo heading into Wednesday with better than 95% of the action coming in on the Bills, prompting a line move from -6.5 to -7.

The Chargers vs. Jets MNF Line and Action Analysis

LA Chargers @ New York Jets - Trick or treating was last week but the tricks could still be coming Monday night.  This one has all the makings of a trap game. The Sagarin number is Jets 2.73.  The actual line is Jets +3.5 with New York seeing close to 60% of the action overnight Sunday.  This is up from +3.  The early number was +2.5.  Sagarin gives us a number of Jets 2.7, which suggests the wrong team is favored and there is a 4.5 to 5.5 overlay.  Action is mostly balanced heading into Monday afternoon with books taking the number over the 3 to 3.5.  It's rare in football (both NFL and college) for the line to move between 2.5 and 3.5.  Over the course of the last week, however, the line has really gone from 3 to 3.5 with the 2.5 and lower number appearing within the first 24 to 48 hours. Overlays and wrong teams favored in this spot do tend to bode well for the underdogs. The number dropped to -3 across the board after 12:30 pm. 55% and nearly $1 million on average was bet on the Jets at select sportsbooks just prior to game time.  We have the Jets with a 55% shot here.
