Free Picks: Buffalo Bills vs Los Angeles Rams

Josh Allen and the Buffalo Bills will host Sean McVay and the Los Angeles Rams. Inter-conference matchups are always interesting as there is a smaller sample size for data and trends, but in recent history, meetings between the Rams and Bills have been high scoring affairs. 888sport has the OVER/UNDER set at 47.5.

Time to make a statement

It may come as a shock that the Buffalo Bills are 2-0. Yes, they’ve beaten up on some bottom-feeders in the Jets and Dolphins, but the Bills look pretty good. It’s strange to see, but the Bills are averaging 359.5 yards per game, as opposed to just 263.5 for the Rams. Granted, it’s only Week 3 and the Rams have faced tougher opponents but it’s still noteworthy.

In recent history, meetings between these two teams have hit the OVER often, which is a trend I’m comfortable betting on this week. The OVER has hit in 7 of the last 8 meetings between the Rams and the Bills.


Sean McVay seems more committed to the run game more than ever, which is odd considering that there is no true lead running back in the Rams’ backfield. They also have good options at wide receiver and tight end which makes it even more puzzling.

The Rams will have to adjust their game a bit this week, as they may be playing from behind for a good portion of the game. Everyone knows the story on the Rams, but the Bills are an overlooked and sneaky good team. Josh Allen has established a great connection with Stefon Diggs early on and has a pass completion percentage of 70.4% across the first two games of the season. He also has 6 passing touchdowns and 0 interceptions.

I’d take the Bills on the Moneyline in this one, which 888sport has at 1.77. It’s hard for me to trust the Rams right now, as their offense is too much of an enigma week-in and week-out. This game should be close but I expect Buffalo to win this one at home and make a statement about who they are by beating a quality team.



  • Buffalo is 13-7 SU in their last 20 games
  • The OVER has cashed in 4 of the last 5 home games against Los Angeles
  • Los Angeles is 2-6 ATS in their last 8 games against Buffalo
  • Buffalo is 4-1 SU in their last 5 games against an NFC opponent
