Our picks for Falcons vs. Bills

Pick against the spread: BUF -14

The Bills should cover if they can avoid the trap game here. They are getting hot at the right time and should be able to handle business to stay atop the AFC East in this game. Their defense should be able to key on Cordarelle Patterson and Kyle Pitts and keep the Falcons out of the endzone. They are getting their offense back to full capacity with the alleviated COVID protocols. Bills by 90 (or like 18).

Over/under: OVER 44

I don’t expect the Falcons to do much on offense and their defense is awful. The Bills will be able to score big early and work on continuing their momentum to end the season. I don’t know that they put up 44 by themselves, but I think the Falcons do barely enough to help eek this one over the hump.

Preferred player prop: Devin Singletary OVER 54.5 rushing yards -115

Singletary hasn’t gotten the workload he probably deserves, but when given a shot he’s been efficient with his touches. The Falcons are middle of the pack in allowing rushing yards, but this game sets up well for the Bills to have a lead throughout, which means more opportunities for Singletary.
