ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. [WKBW] — For the first time since 1993, the Bills [4-1] are 17 point favorites as they welcome the winless [0-5] Miami Dolphins into town. Coincidentally, the last time the Bills were favored by such a wide-margin they lost. But will they have the same trouble on Sunday? Our staff gives their thoughts:
Does the 17-point spread say more about the Bills or the Dolphins? While the logical answer is both, personally, I think it says more about how bad the Dolphins have been. They are allowing 36 points per game and can't produce any consistent offense. With an injury-plagued offensive line, the Bills should have success rushing the quarterback.
All that said, 17 points is a huge margin. If on Monday the Bills win by 16 points will anyone really think they underachieved? While I think the Bills will get the win, I also have a hunch it'll be closer than most of us think.
Bills 24, Dolphins 14
No explanation necessary... mostly because I’m
on vacation and typing this from Western Michigan.
So, enjoy this one Bills Mafia. I know all of my extended family (die-hard Bills fans) will. Pretty sure they’re looking forward to welcoming my new brother-in-law to the family. Did I mention he happens to work for the Dolphins?
Bills 34, Dolphins 6
