Expert Pick #1 – Buffalo Bills -5.5 @-110
The Bills are on a hot run, and they have been pretty dominant in the previous few weeks. They managed to beat the Chiefs pretty comfortably last weekend, and I expect them to continue in the same fashion. I’ll take Buffalo to cover the number as my first pick.
Expert Pick #2 – Over 54 @-110
Tennessee has been pretty good offensively, but their defense has allowed too many points. On the other hand, the Bills are among the best offensive teams in the league, and we could see an efficient match on Monday evening. The Over will be my second bet for this match.
Expert Pick #3 – Bills & Over 43.5 @-115
I’ll combine the moneyline and the totals market for my third pick, and the Bills to win followed by at least 44 points in total can generate decent odds. I believe this outcome is likely possible, and I’ll back it as my third tip.
