New England Patriots vs. Buffalo Bills point spread and line

 One of the most wagered on football games in NFL Week 17 is the New England Patriots vs. Buffalo Bills and below you will find the current point spread, as well as what's the line on the Patriots - Bills game. Finishing the last regular season with a perfect record, this year the New England Patriots (10-5) are in a tough situation - they not only need to win the Sunday game against the Bills, but will need help from the Jets, who are facing the Dolphins, or from Jacksonville, who are playing the Ravens. If neither team delivers help and the Pats win over Buffalo, they will end up tie with the Dolphins for wild-card, but lose the tie-breaker, which will make them the second 11-5 team ever to miss the playoffs, along with the '85 Broncos.

 Considering how much is riding on the Patriots vs. Bills game on Sunday, the popular sports betting website Bookmaker has listed New England as the favorite with -275 betting line, while Buffalo will be an underdog sitting on a +235 line to win. The New England Patriots vs. Buffalo Bills point spread is currently at -6 points chalk the Pats with the total expected by the sportsbook posted at 41 points. Keep in mind that Buffalo is not only 1-5 against the spread in its last 6 games at home, but the Patriots are 5-1 against the spread in its last 6 games when playing Buffalo. Another interesting note - the Pats have won 15 of the last 16 games against the Bills, winning the last 10 in a row. The total has gone UNDER in 7 of New England's last 10 games when playing on the road against Buffalo.

 Patriots linebacker Tedy Bruschi, defensive end Richard Seymour, plus two safeties James Sanders and Raymond Ventrone all missed Wednesday practice, while New England linebackers Gary Guyton and Vince Redd, cornerbacks Ellis Hobbs and Lewis Sanders, plus defensive end Ty Warren, all had a limited practice yesterday and are questionable for the Patriots vs. Bills game.
