Late night discussion: Should the Bills be bigger favorites?

September 12, 2019 - 3:10 am

The Bills are on the road again and they are heading back to MetLife stadium. Buffalo's Week 2 matchup features the 0-1 New York Giants. A team that along with the Miami Dolphins, is seen as one of the poorest rosters in the NFL. 

Las Vegas has the Bills at a -2 favorite despite being the road team. While being on the road could be a factor in the lower line, the New York Giants are coming off a loss to the Dallas Cowboys where they allowed nearly 500 yards of offense (494 to be exact). 

On offense, RB Saquon Barkley was the only legitimate threat for New York. 

This possess the question, should the Bills be bigger favorites? At what line are people comfortable with taking the Giants to cover? 

Fans headed to Twitter to give their two cents on Wednesday's late night discussion. 


Giants should be heavy dogs 

Many contributors to the discussion wouldn't feel comfortable with the Giants covering the spread unless the number is in the double digits. 

A lot of confidence flowing through the veins of Bills fan and a belief that the Giants are in the cellar of the NFL. 


Not so convinced

There were some who are still skeptical that the Bills can roll through a team, regardless of opposing talent. 

The Bills have an opportunity to prove that this is a new era of Buffalo football.

It is hard to imagine a scenario where the Giants get a win, even at home, if they continue to play that poorly defensively. QB Eli Manning also continues to show that he productive days are long gone. 

If Dak Prescott can throw for 405 yards, Josh Allen should be able to put up a pretty big game too. 

As for stopping Barkley, the Bills were able to hold another star RB in Le'Veon Bell to just 60 rushing yards on 17 carries (3.5 YPC) last week. 

Only take the Giants to cover if it is a 10+ point spread.
