The Buffalo Bills are off 9-7 season, but still that wasn’t good enough to get them back to the playoffs for the first time since 1999. Vegas isn’t really expecting much more from the Bills this year, as they have their win total set at 8.5 with the over shaded at -120. Vegas Odds have the Bills listed at +500 to win the AFC East, +1800 to win the AFC and +4000 to win Super Bowl 50. Let’s take a quick look at the Buffalo Bills, along with their 2015 Schedule.
Last year the Bills ranked 16th in the league in scoring, at 21.4 ppg, while also ranking 26th in total yards (318.5 ypg), 18th in passing (225.9 ypg) and 25th in rushing (92.6 ypg).The Bills have been rather average on offense the last few years and I'm not sure that will change this year. They have a few solid skill players, including newly acquired LeSean McCoy (RB) and WR's Sammy Watkins, Percy Harvin and Robert Woods, but they don't really have a good QB and Rex Ryan is not an offensive minded coach. He had some offensive talent with the jets at times and never knew how to use it. Overall they do have skill position depth and a solid OL as well. If Rex Opens up the offense and if they get some solid QB play from EJ Manuel then they do have a chance at being a top 10 offense, but I just don't see it happening.
Defensively, the Bills were very good last year, ranking 4th in points allowed (18.1 ppg), 4th in yards allowed (312.2 ypg), 3rd vs the pass (205.8 ypg) and 11th vs the run (106.5 ypg). Rex Ryan is a defensive minded coach and he will be inheriting one heck of a defense that finished in the top 4 in points allowed, yards allowed overall and vs the pass. The Defensive line is anchored by Kyle Williams, who is one of the best nose tackles in the league, while the LB corp is led by Mario Williams and Jerry Hughes, who combined for 24 sacks last year. The secondary has a lot of young talent and also has some solid depth as well. Overall this defense will again be one of the best in the league.
The Bills win total is set at 8.5 i feel that they can get 9 wins, especially if their offense is better than average and it will be if they get some solid QB and Ryan doesn't play as conservatively as he did with the Jets. The defense is stout and the Special teams are solid. The Bills open with 2 games at home and finish with 2 games at home, which is a plus and they also may catch a break by facing the Pats without Brady in game 2 at home. The Bills should get at least 9 wins this year and possibly contend for a playoff spot.

Free NFL Betting Pick: Minnesota Vikings at San Francisco 49ers
It may be June, but this Monday Night Football bet is already a hot commodity with bettors jumping to bet against the San Francisco 49ers. Pro bettor Steve Fezzik loves the Vikings at +3 here, and says this bet is one you want to run, not walk to get before the number before this three-star bet disappears. With Adrian Peterson back, Teddy Bridgewater maturing, and the 49ers imploding, this is a perfect spot to fade a bad team and bet big on an underrated team this 2015 NFL season.
