Jets vs. Bills Week 1 Live Odds


The Jets are significant underdogs in this one. The Bills are favored by nearly a touchdown and this line hasn’t seen too much movement since it opened in May.

The Bills are coming off of a playoff season and are seen as one of the favorites in the AFC East. Buffalo is in the hunt for a Super Bowl according to some sportsbooks. Although the Jets finished last season with a 6-2 record in the second half, most books don’t see New York as a legitimate contender this year.



Divisional games always tend to be a little wacky so seeing the Bills as such significant favorites is a little strange. After all, the Jets are 2-0 in their last to trips to Orchard Park.

There is value on the moneyline for the Jets at +240. It won’t take a massive wager to win some money if the Jets can make it three years in a row. The Bills are heavy favorites at -286 so it will take a sizable wager for that bet to make sense.


Total Points

The total points are set to 39.5 and that’s about as low as you’ll find any NFL game. Sportsbooks are projecting this one to be a low-scoring, grind-it-out type game. Without a preseason to get players up to game speed, it won’t be surprising to see offenses struggle out of the gate.

The Jets and Bills ranked near the bottom of the NFL in scoring last season. The Jets were 31st with an average of 17.2 points per game while Buffalo finished 23rd (19.6). If last year is any indication, the under looks like a safe bet.


Betting Trends & Public Splits

This line really hasn’t moved too much since it opened in May. The Jets were 6.5-point underdogs back then and although the moneyline has seen some minor shifts here and there, these odds have remained relatively steady.

In terms of the spread line, most of the bets are on the Bills, but the money is coming in heavy on the Jets. Week 1 betting splits show that only 32% of tickets are on the Jets, but they account for 79% of the money. That tells us that most of the sharp money is on the Jets to cover the spread on the road.
