How the public is betting Buffalo Bills vs. Arizona Cardinals

Buffalo is coming off a big win, while Arizona should have a bad taste in its mouth after last weekend. Where is the money headed, and should you be following the public?

The Buffalo Bills will take their 7-2 overall record on the road as they get ready for Sunday afternoon’s matchup with the 5-3 Arizona Cardinals in one of the best games of the weekend. The Bills are coming off an impressive showing, handling the Seattle Seahawks with relative ease 44-34 for their third consecutive victory. On the other side, Arizona is coming off a 34-31 home loss to the Miami Dolphins.

So where are sports bettors going as we get closer to game time? Let’s take a look. All odds and info were provided by DraftKings Sportsbook.

Point spread

The Cardinals come into this game as 2.5-point favorites at home, and sports bettors are all over the road underdogs. Of the point spread wagers on this game at DraftKings, 78% of the action is on the Bills as well as 67% of the handle to cover this spread.

Is the public right? No. Arizona is going to cover this numbers as slight favorites. The Cardinals should’ve beaten Miami and let it slip away despite outgaining the Dolphins by 130 yards, and they’ll be motivated to right the wrongs from last weekend.

Over/under

DraftKings has this point total set at 55.5 for the highest of all the games being played in Week 10 of the NFL season, but it’s not high enough for the points-hungry bettors. Seventy-six percent of point total bets in this one are on the side of the over as well as a whopping 93% of the handle.

Is the public right? Yes, the public is correct. The 55.5 is an incredibly high number, but it’s not high enough. Don’t be afraid to root for the points. Arizona reached the 30s in each of its last four games, and Buffalo is coming off a 44-point performance in its last time out.

Moneyline

Arizona’s moneyline odds are set at -148 on DraftKings with Buffalo at +128. The Bills moneyline is getting the majority of wagers heading into this game. Among the moneyline bets, Buffalo is getting 79% of the wagers as well as 76% of the money on its side.

Is the public right? No. Arizona has way more motivation to win this game. It would be a bit of a surprise if the Bills fail to win the AFC East, while the Cardinals are in need of a win to keep pace in a competitive NFC West all within 2.5 games of each other. Take Arizona to win this one outright.
