The New England Patriots are the hottest team in football at the moment, as Mac Jones has this team ready to compete for a championship in his rookie season. New England has won six straight games, putting them in first place in the AFC East after coming off a 7-9 season in 2020.
Jones may have his toughest test yet in primetime this week, though. He will have to tussle with Josh Allen and the Buffalo Bills. After some puzzling losses in the middle of the season, Sean McDermott has this team locked and loaded. A win could vault them right back into the pole position in the division.
New England might have one of the best defenses in the league due to a strong secondary, but Allen, offensive coordinator Brian Daboll, and star receiver Stefon Diggs are good enough to totally wreck any defensive gameplan.
Will Jones and the Patriots keep riding the wave and stay hot? Or will the Bills completely dismantle New England and end their winning streak? The latest Patriots odds don’t seem to be very hopeful when it comes to Jones potentially adding a seventh straight win.
Patriots vs Bills Odds for Week 13
According to our friends at WynnBET, the Bills are three-point home favorites. They have -105 odds to cover that spread (bet $105 to win $100). Buffalo is -150 on the moneyline, while New England checks in at +130.
The over/under is set at 44 points (both at -110). With these two teams sporting some of the best defensive units in the game, expect a low-scoring slugfest in the frigid Buffalo air. Winning the turnover battle is going to be even more important in this game.
Patriots vs Bills Prediction for Week 13
The Bills appeared to be completely out of sorts for some time, but Allen seems to have found his footing by dominating the Saints on Thanksgiving. With extra time to prepare and rest up for this game, Buffalo has a good chance to move the ball against this Patriots defense with some degree of success.
If the Patriots can control time of possession with their running back tandem and make it an ugly game, they can pull off the upset. If they fail in accomplishing that goal, Jones may find it hard to win a road shootout against Allen in his first trip up to western New York.
