Sunday Night Football: Green Bay Packers versus Buffalo Bills Lines and Match Info

Why bet on Green Bay versus Buffalo?

Green Bay heads to Orchard Park on a 3-game losing streak. The Packers lost to the Giants in a London game and then followed up the loss to NYG in a terrible losing performance versus the New York Jets.

Last Sunday, the Washington Commanders beat Green Bay. Things aren’t going well, but there’s hope. Aaron Rodgers will have success against Buffalo’s stout defense. Not only that, but Green Bay is too good to play four lousy games in a row. Also, the odds make it possible for the Packers to lose by 10 and still win against the spread.

Green Bay Packers at Buffalo Bills Final Betting Prediction

Green Bay is a disaster. After GB traded Devante Adams, NFL handicappers gave the Packers the benefit of the doubt. Aaron Rodgers and head coach Matt LaFleur, the thinking went, would find a way.

After 7 games, 4 of which Green Bay has lost, and 3 of which the Pack has lost in a row, it’s apparent that, no, LaFleur has not found a way

Green Bay is getting worse week to week, not better, which means what Aaron Rodgers said after losing to Washington, that some starters shouldn’t be starting, is likely true. Who starts doesn’t fall on Rodgers’ shoulders. 

It falls on LeFleur’s. The problem is that LaFleur is likely starting folks who shouldn’t because he has no choice.

In any case, the pick for this game is a no-brainer. On one side you have a franchise in discord with the head coach and future hall of fame quarterback on different pages.

On the other side, you’ve got the soon to be NFL MVP, a head coach who has developed a lock down defense, and players with a single goal, to win a Super Bowl. Buffalo wins and covers.
