AFC Wild Card picks for Patriots vs. Bills
Before you tune in to Saturday’s Bills vs. Patriots game, you need to see the NFL picks from SportsLine’s advanced computer model. The model, which simulates every NFL game 10,000 times, is up over $7,400 for $100 players on top-rated NFL picks since its inception six-plus years ago. The model enters the 2021 NFL playoffs on an incredible 136-97 run on top-rated NFL picks that dates back to the 2017 season.
The model also ranked in the top 10 on NFLPickWatch four of the past five years on straight-up NFL picks and beat more than 94 percent of CBS Sports Football Pick’em players four times during that span. Anyone who has followed it is way up.
For Patriots vs. Bills, the model is backing Buffalo to cover the spread. New England got the best of the Bills when these teams met in Buffalo in Week 13, but Josh Allen and company got their revenge three weeks later. The Bills defeated the Patriots by 12 points to give New England its second-biggest defeat of the season. The Bills also covered in that game and went 3-0-1 against the spread over their last four.
On the other hand, New England is just 1-3 against the number over its last four games, with only a cover against the NFL-worst Jaguars coming in that span. The Patriots’ defense has faltered down the stretch and allowed 103 points (25.8 per game) over the last four games, compared to just 73 during its preceding seven-game win streak.
The model has the Bills winning by seven points and Buffalo (-4.5) covers in well over 50 percent of simulations.
