Buffalo Bills vs. Minnesota Vikings: Bills Destined to go 0-3?
Posted by: Anthony Yaylor
The Minnesota Vikings suffered one of the most embarrassing NFL football betting ties in the history of the NFL this past weekend. After a referee gave them a golden opportunity to win the game via a questionable roughing the passer call, the Vikings were able to tie Green Bay and force overtime. Afterwards, they won the coin toss but were stuffed on their way down the field. Nevertheless, Minnesota’s defense held and their offense got the ball back, marched down the field and set up a game winning field goal. The only problem was that their kicker had already missed 2 on the day. And although they set up an easy, short distance kick, the pressure was too much and he ended up costing them the victory. So, with that meager performance in sight, will the franchise be able to bounce back in this Sunday’s Buffalo Bills vs. Minnesota Vikings matchup? Let’s take a look at the legal betting odds to find out.

The Bills are 0-2 so far this season and are widely considered the most disappointing team in the NFL. This past Sunday, they also happened to suffer one of the most embarrassing things that could happen to a team. After suffering a tough half against the Los Angeles Chargers, Vontae Davis, one of the Bills’ veteran defensive backs, decided to retire. It’s one thing to retire midseason, it’s another to retire midgame. Naturally, Buffalo became the laughing stock of the NFL. And since they share a division with the Pats, their 0-2 start basically means they’re going to miss out on the playoffs. It’s more likely than not that they’ll suffer another humbling loss this Sunday.
Players to Watch: Josh Allen (319 passing yards, 1 TD, 2 INT), LeSean McCoy (61 rushing yards, 0 TD, 0 F), and Zay Jones (89 receiving yards, 0 TD, 5 REC).
The Vikings charge into this weekend’s action sporting their rather humorous 1-0-1 record. Luckily for Minnesota, they get to bounce back against one of the worst teams in the NFL. Looking over the numbers, it’s clear Minnesota will be coming out on top this weekend. Right now the Bills are giving up a whopping 39 points per game. Since Buffalo is averaging 255 total yards of offense, while Minnesota puts up 426.5 themselves, it’s clear we can expect a lopsided finish to this weekend’s matchup.
Players to Watch: Kirk Cousins (669 passing yards, 6 TD, 1 INT), Dalvin Cook (78 rushing yards, 0 TD, 1 F), and Adam Thielen (233 receiving yards, 1 TD, 18 REC).
