The Buffalo Bills are not used to having the “underdog” word thrown their way in 2021.
But that is the case in Week 14.
As the Bills (7-5) look to right the ship against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers (9-3), Buffalo is not the favorite. Rather, the defending champs are.
Throughout this season, there was only one other time that the Bills were an underdog. That contest was Buffalo’s Week 5 matchup against the Kansas City Chiefs.
The Bucs being the favorite certainly makes sense. Yes, they’re defending champions, but Tampa also has won three-straight games.
Meanwhile. the Bills have had no sense of consistency.
Since that prior mentioned Chiefs game, one which Buffalo won on Oct. 10, the Bills have alternated winning and losing ever since.
On one hand, that leaves some disappointment. But the Bills have bounced back from losses very well, so there could be some reason to take Buffalo as the underdog this week against the Buccaneers.
But if some other wagers are more your speed, the over/under has opened at 52.5. That’s the highest of any Week 14 game in the NFL as things currently stand.
The moneyline sits at Bucs (-174) and Bills (+146).
