Posted by: Anthony Yaylor
Monday night football continues in Week 8 of the 2018 online NFL betting season. Unfortunately, the sportsbook betting odds are predicting a rather lopsided outcome to the New England Patriots vs. Buffalo Bills matchup. Then again, considering what kind of season Buffalo is having, we’re all expecting an extremely one-sided affair this upcoming Monday night. Notwithstanding that premonition, are there any decent legal bets to make off of this AFC East pairing? Let’s check out the odds to find out.

Stream: NBC Extra, NFL Game Pass
NFL Football Betting Odds:
New England Patriots
The Pats march into this weekend’s matchup sporting a 5-2 record that ranks them as the best team in the AFC East. Nevertheless, the 4-3 Miami Dolphins are hot on New England’s tail. Although the Pats have already beaten the Fins once this season, they’ll want to secure their divisional lead in the coming weeks. Considering they’re facing the worst team in the division this upcoming Monday night, this Week 8 matchup offers the perfect opportunity to do just that. Furthermore, when considering that New England is 8-2 in their last10 matchups against the Bills, it’s easy to see why that money line is as steep as the above listed odds. New England is coming off a dominant 38-31 win over the Chicago Bears that marked the franchise’s 4th straight win. Having said that, it’s clear that New England brings enough momentum into this matchup to deliver a blowout on the road.
Players to Watch: Tom Brady (1,876 passing yards, 16 TD, 7 INT), Sony Michel (422 rushing yards, 4 TD, 1 F), and Rob Gronkowski (405 receiving yards, 1 TD, 26 REC).
The Bills had high hopes for the 2018 season after they broke their playoff drought last year. Unfortunately, some questionable decisions in the offseason have come back to bite Buffalo. Josh Allen had shown some promise after taking over for the shoddy Nathan Peterman. Allen has since gotten banged up and Buffalo was forced to pick up Derek Anderson. Anderson made his first start for the Bills last weekend and it’s safe to say that he vastly underperformed seeing as how he finished the game with 3 interceptions and lead Buffalo to just 5 points. Since Anderson was brought in to tutor Allen they might just want to get rid of him because whatever knowledge he brings is clearly not worth having passed on to your younger quarterbacks.
Players to Watch: Josh Allen (832 passing yards, 2 TD, 5 INT), LeSean McCoy (244 rushing yards, 0 TD, 0 F), and Zay Jones (226 receiving yards, 1 TD, 19 REC).
