    Comparing Bills point spreads

    Early point spreads for next week’s Bills game can come out even before the Bills and their upcoming opponents wrap up this week’s games. However, the true spread comes out right after the previous week’s action ends. News and information regarding injuries, weather and other factors that may affect the outcome of the game can cause books to adjust the spread throughout the week. So can big betting on one side or the other.

    Let’s say the Bills are seven-point favorites at home over the New England Patriots on Monday morning, but everybody and their brother in Western New York remember history, thinks the Pats are hot, and bets on New England at +7. Sportsbooks will want to even out the betting, so they can make a small profit without worrying about which side wins. Therefore, they may move the line to Bills -6.5, hoping to attract more bets on Buffalo.

    Of course, you may be able to benefit by betting against the public. Oddsmakers aren’t wrong very often, and here, you can bet on a seven-point favorite at a slightly better line. Whether you’re betting against the Bills spread or with the Bills spread, pay attention to line movement to see if you can get some value out of it.

    Bills over/under odds

    The same is true of betting on the total in a Bills game, where you bet on the combined score landing over or under a line that the sportsbook sets. If the line is 55.5 points and the public bets big on the over, sportsbooks may adjust that line.

    You will then be able to bet the under on a higher line. It’s like betting on exactly what oddsmakers think will happen with a bit of a cushion built in. Just remember, sports betting sites in New York look at offensive and defensive production stats for both teams before they set the line. You should do the same when betting on it.

    Buffalo Bills futures odds

    Suppose you want to bet on the Bills to do any or all of the following:

    • Make the playoffs
    • Win the AFC East
    • Win the AFC championship
    • Win the Super Bowl

    You can do it in the NFL futures market at legal betting sites in New York, such as DraftKings Sportsbook and FanDuel online sportbook. The odds on these bets come out in the offseason and change with the team’s chances of accomplishing any of these goals throughout the year. You, however, will lock in the current Bills betting odds whenever you place a futures bet.

    That means the closer Buffalo is to making the playoffs, or winning the AFC East, the AFC championship, or the Super Bowl, the tighter the Bills betting lines will get. In other words, many futures bets pay better the earlier you can get a bet down.

    Buffalo Bills player props

    Player props are mostly about betting on the statistical success of an individual player in an NFL game. That includes betting on things like how many yards Josh Allen will throw for, or how many TDs Stefon Diggs might score. Props are often yes/no or over/under-style bets. NFL prop bets available for Bills games might include the following:

    • QB passing yards
    • QB completions
    • QB interceptions
    • WR receiving yards
    • WR receptions
    • WR touchdowns
    • RB rushing yards
    • RB touchdowns
    • RB rushing plus receiving yards

    You can also place NFL futures bets on season-long achievements like Josh Allen winning the MVP or Offensive Player of the Year award. See current Bills player props above.

    Bills tailgate traditions

    The parking lot outside Highmark Stadium in the Buffalo suburb of Orchard Park is famous for its tailgate parties at Bills home games. Fans are known as the Bills Mafia, and the tailgate parties they hold include various traditions:

    • Fans jumping over and into flaming folding tables.
    • Standard tailgate fare like grilled meats, chicken wings, and beer.
    • Bills dreamers playing catch with a football.
    • Games like cornhole and ladder golf, along with blaring music.
    • Pinto Ron’s ketchup and mustard ceremony, where he gets doused in condiments.

    Highmark Stadium seating chart

    How much are Bills season tickets?

    The Bills had 33 price levels for 2021 season tickets. These ranged from $390 to $3,675 per seat. Close to 80% of Bills season ticket holders in 2020 left their money as account credit when it became clear fans would not be able to attend games. That gave them the first shot at season tickets in 2021.

    Season tickets sold out for the 2021 season. However, the Bills offer a season ticket waiting list that gives members priority access to individual game tickets, discounts at the Bills Store and the earliest opportunity to obtain season tickets next year, should they become available. The cost to join the waitlist is $125 per general seat and $200 per club seat.

    How much are the Bills worth?

    According to Forbes, the Buffalo Bills are worth about $2.27 billion. That’s an 11% increase over 2020, but the Bills have dropped to 32nd place on the Forbes list of 32 NFL teams. In 2020, the Bills were worth $2.05 billion, but were 31st, ahead of the 32nd place Cincinnati Bengals. The average NFL franchise is worth $3.48 billion. The Dallas Cowboys are the league’s most valuable team at $6.5 billion.

    How many Super Bowls did the Bills lose in a row?

    The Buffalo Bills lost four Super Bowls in a row between 1990 and 1993. It’s a rather dubious NFL record, but those looking for a silver lining can point to the fact that the 1990s Bills are also the only team in NFL history to make it to four consecutive Super Bowls.

    What are Jim Kelly and Scott Norwood doing now?

    QB Jim Kelly and PK Scott Norwood were key figures on some of the best Bills teams in franchise history.

    Kelly now lives south of Buffalo with his wife and their two daughters. After retiring from the NFL, Kelly spent most of his time devoted to his son, Hunter James Kelly, who was diagnosed with globoid-cell leukodystrophy after his birth in 1997. Hunter died in 2005, and Kelly established a nonprofit organization called Hunter’s Hope that advocates on behalf of globoid-cell leukodystrophy patients. Kelly also founded the Hunter James Kelly Research Institute at the University at Buffalo in 2004, which studies the disease.

    Kelly was inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame in 2002. He was diagnosed with cancer in his jaw in 2013 and contracted MRSA within his bones in 2014. He was diagnosed with cancer again in 2018, but had surgery and has been cancer-free since 2019.

    After the Bills’ second Super Bowl loss in a row, they waived Norwood. He went back home to Northern Virginia and maintained a low profile. He emerged selling insurance in the late 1990s and moved back to Buffalo in 2002, starting a career as a real estate agent.

    What is “wide right”?

    The phrase “wide right” is a reference — infamous in Buffalo — to Norwood’s missed 47-yard field goal attempt with eight seconds to go in Super Bowl XXV. It went wide to the right, the New York Giants won the game as a result, and Norwood became synonymous with the Bills’ failure to win a Super Bowl while going to four in a row.

    After the Bills’ second Super Bowl loss, they waived Norwood, but some still hold him accountable for all four losses, since his missed kick began the dubious run. Here’s an NFL Films short doc telling the whole story:
