The NFL lock of the week is on a roll and has now cashed three straight games. Last week there was an easy winner on the San Francisco 49ers. The 49ers demolished Tampa Bay and led from start to finish and never looked back. That is the essential definition of a lock in NFL betting. A game that was an easy win and was never in question. This week the NFL lock of the week will take place in New York as Big Blue will devour the Buffalo Bills.
Emotion is huge in the NFL. If you don’t think it plays a role in the betting aspect of football games, you are crazy. Some of the easiest wins and easiest picks were based off emotion and this week is no exception.
The New York Giants were embarrassed a week ago. They were double digit home favorites against the Seattle Seahawks and got beat in every area of the game. The offense was shaky, defense was shredded and they took a very lopsided loss.
Meanwhile the Buffalo Bills continued their impressive start to the season with a win over the Philadelphia Eagles. This prompted the sports betting public to hop on the Bills this week catching three points in New York. This is an overreaction to last week’s results and the difference will be evident this week.
The Bills are 5-11 ATS in their last 16 games following a win and 1-6-1 ATS in their last 8 games as an underdog of 0.5-3.0. The Giants are 22-8-1 ATS in their last 31 games in October and 6-2-1 ATS in their last nine games following a double-digit loss at home. This game will be reversal from a year ago as the Giants win big.
