Bills vs. Jets Betting Odds: A Critical Game

Whichever team loses in Sunday's Bills vs. Jets game probably won't be getting into the Playoffs, though this division remains extremely tight.  Let's put it another way, this is a "must win" situation for the Bills if they stand a chance to make the Playoffs.  The Buffalo Bills vs. New York Jets betting odds opened at Jets -6 ½ and that line had moved to -7 ½ just about everywhere with the exception being that a number of the so-called "sharp" sportsbooks had the Jets at -9.

The Jets (8-3) were riding high entering Thanksgiving weekend, alone atop the AFC East thanks to a five-game winning streak. The two most impressive wins during that run were the final two -- 34-31 in overtime on Nov. 13 at five-time reigning division champion New England and 34-13 the following week at previously unbeaten Tennessee.

Since beating the Titans, the Jets have fallen back to the pack with two surprising losses, 34-17 at home to Denver, followed by last week's 24-14 defeat at San Francisco.

"I didn't expect us to lose the last two games," said Jets QB Brett Favre, who ranks fourth in the AFC with 20 touchdown passes but hasn't thrown one in his last nine quarters. "But I don't know if too many people expected us to win five straight. Maybe our team did. So, if we're able to win five straight and accept that, then we have to be willing to deal with these two games that we've lost and figure out a way to turn it around."

While the Bills have won three of the last four in this series, the Jets beat the Bills in Buffalo earlier this season.

The Bills are 1-6 ATS in their last 7 road games vs. a team with a winning home record while the Jets are 5-1 ATS in their last 6 vs. AFC East.
