DraftKings Thursday Night Football preview: Bills vs Patriots
This week’s Thursday Night Football encounter comes to us from one of the tightest divisions in the NFL, the AFC East. The Buffalo Bills and the Miami Dolphins are tied for first, with matching .727 win percentages. The New England Patriots, meanwhile, are last, trailing the New York Jets, and risk dropping to .500 if things don’t go their way on Thursday night.
The Bills won 28-25 in a close game against the Detroit Lions last week and will be looking to keep their momentum going in Massachusetts. The Patriots, for their part, will be looking to bounce back after the Minnesota Vikings ended what had been a three-game winning streak. With a healthy dose of rivalry and both teams still nurturing postseason ambitions, this promises to be an exciting contest.
As of right now, the Bills are five-point favorites to win on Thursday night. Moneyline odds are Buffalo -220, New England +190, and the over/under is 43.5 points. DraftKings also has several prop and parlay options available on the game, including anytime touchdown scorer odds, which currently favor Rhamondre Stevenson (-110), Stefon Diggs (+105), Devin Singletary (+125) and Josh Allen (+160).
