NFL Football Buffalo At Arizona Week 3 Winning Favorites

Written by on September 23, 2016

The Buffalo Bills are already in all-out desperation mode after two games. The AFC East playoff hopefuls will look to snap their two-game skid when they host an Arizona Cardinals team looking to record consecutive victories after getting their first win a week ago.

Now, let’s find out which team is offering the most value in this intriguing Week 3 matchup.

A Closer Look At The NFL Football Bills At Cardinals Week 3 Winning Favorites

When: Sunday, September 25, 2016 at 1:00 pm.
Where: New Era Field
Live Stream: FOX Sports GO
NFL Odds: Buffalo Bills +5.5 / Over/Under: 47

Bet The Arizona Cardinals at -5.5 Because…

The Arizona Cardinals are the better team in all three phases. Arizona bounced back from their season-opening loss to annihilate Tampa Bay 40-7 in Week 2 as quarterback Carson Palmer completed 17 of 30 passes for 304 yards and three touchdowns while running back David Johnson rushed 16 times for 54 yards and one score. Wide receivers John Brown and Larry Fitzgerald both caught touchdown passes in the win.

For the season, Palmer has passed for 579 pass yards with five touchdowns while Fitzgerald has caught 14 passes for 162 yards and three touchdowns. Defensively, Arizona picked off Buccaneers’ quarterback Jameis Winston four times while limiting Tampa Bay to just 85 rushing yards in the win.

Bet The Buffalo Bills at +5.5 Because…

The Bills are in all-out desperation mode! Buffalo fell to 0-2 on the season by losing to the New York Jets 37-31 in their Week 2 AFC East divisional battle despite getting 297 passing yards and three touchdowns from quarterback Tyrod Taylor.

Wide receiver Marquise Goodwin caught two passes for 112 yards and one score but the Bills were limited to a miniscule 86 rushing yards with starting running back LeSean McCoy getting limited to a modest 59 rushing yards on 15 carries. Defensively, the Bills allowed Jets’ running back Matt Forte to reach the 100-yard plateau and score three rushing touchdowns.

Expert Pick & Final Score Prediction

The Arizona Cardinals looked really good last week in obliterating a Tampa Bay Buccaneers team that looked really good in their Week 1 win and I believe the Buffalo Bills are in for more, even though they’re playing at home in this matchup. The Cardinals have compiled a blistering 6-1 ATS mark in their last seven games in the month of September while also going 15-7 ATS in their last 22 road games, and 1-4 ATS in their last five games overall.

While the Bills have gone 4-1 ATS in their last five home games, Rex Ryan’s underachieving team is also 2-5 ATS in their last seven September games. More importantly, the Cardinals are the better team in all three phases of the game and will cover the spread by winning outright!

My Pick: Arizona 30 Buffalo 24
