Why Buffalo Bills are a good bet at +7.5?

Buffalo’s only 2-2 straight up in their last 4. They’re 3-1 against the spread in their last 4, though. Buffalo’s been underappreciated this entire year. They pulled off the amazing moneyline win over Minnesota as a huge +17 dog. They covered in Week 6 in a loss to Houston and they covered when losing by a single point to Tennessee in Week 5.Bills play good enough defense to keep the Colts within a TD and extra point. Leaning on their defense, Buffalo might not win the game, but they can cover the spread.

Why Indianapolis Colts are a good bet at -7.5?

Colts scored 34 against Houston, 24 against New England, and 34 against the Jets.Sure, Indianapolis failed to win any of the 3 straight up or against the spread, but all 3 opponents have decent enough offenses to score with the Colts.

Final NFL Betting Analysis for Bills at Colts

Buffalo rookie starting quarterback Josh Allen won’t play on Sunday. Allen had gone through some growing pains since starting, but he wasn’t the worst quarterback in the league. Now, Buffalo must turn to Nathan Peterman.He might be the worst quarterback in the NFL. After spelling Allen against Houston, Peterman proceeded to go 6-of-12 for 61 yards with a TD pass and 2 interceptions. Even if Buffalo’s defense can hold the Colts to 24 points or less, no way the Bills score enough to cover.Colts should blow out Buffalo on Sunday.NFL Week 7 Pick: Colts -7.5
