Point spread Week
8: Bills vs. Jets, Oakland at Tennessee
Final pair of betting reviews
and point spread on the Week 8 football games Buffalo Bills vs.
New York Jets and Oakland Raiders vs. Tennessee Titians.
will close this week's betting previews with the odds and spread
on the two games which promise a great payout if you get them
right. First we'll start with the Week 8 football game between
the Buffalo Bills (2-4) and the New York Jets
Bookmaker the Jets are posted
as favorite to win at -155 and the Bills will do another
underdog game with odds +135. The point spread for the
Buffalo Bills vs. New York Jets is currently favoring the
Jets -3 points with total listed at 37.5 points. Betting trends
show that Buffalo is 11-4 against the spread in its last 15
games and the NY Jets are 0-4-1 ATS in their last 5 games. The
total has gone UNDER in 4 of the NY Jets last 6 games when
playing at home against Buffalo.
The Bills will stick with rookie
quarterback Trent Edwards, who has improved their stats since
given the chance, after starter Losman was sidelined with ankle
injury. Trent Edwards has also proven he could lead the Bills to
victory against the Jets after going 22-out-of-28 in September,
when he Jets lost 17-14 against the Bills. Buffalo is still far
from a good team, but the Jets aren't any better and both teams
share some of the lowest stats in the league. But the New York
Jets will have the best motivation this weekend - getting fired.
On Wednesday coach Eric Mangini said that Chad Pennington will
keep his job, but Mangini is reviewing the entire team and the
future of some players with the Jets depends totally on their
game against the Bills. With such motivation is quite possible
that this game could go against the bookies. Limited Thursday
practice in New York: Chad Pennington, Laveranues Coles, Chris
Baker and Dewayne Robertson. Missed Thursday practice in
Buffalo: Ryan Denney, Chris Kelsay, Ryan Neufeld, Josh Stamer
and Ashton Youboty.
Southwest of New York, the Tennessee
Titans (4-2) will welcome the Oakland Raiders (2-4).
Bookmaker the Titians are
favorite in Week 8 with odds -325 and the Raiders are seeing one
of their worst underdog odds at +275, after bailing on the
bookies and losing 12-10 to the Chiefs in Week 7, while -135
favorite. The point spread for the Oakland Raiders vs.
Tennessee Titans is favoring the Titans -7 points and the
total is listed at 40.5 points. Tennessee is 11-3 against the
spread in its last 14 games and Oakland is 2-9 against the
spread in its last 11 games. The total has gone OVER in 4 of
Tennessee's last 5 games when playing Oakland.
The Titans won their last week's game in
Houston 38-36 without Vince Young, but backup Kerry Collins did
a good enough job for Tennessee to go home with another victory.
But coach Jeff Fisher is expecting Vince Young on the field this
weekend, which would make the Titans job much easier. Oakland
quarterback Daunte Culpepper may be replaced by Josh McCown, who
did a full Thursday practice and so did wide receiver Jerry
Porter. Tennessee will likely play without RBs Ahmard Hall and
Chris Brown, who missed practice yesterday. WRs Chris Davis and
Brandon Jones did a full practice and will join the Titans in
