The Bills will enter the season with former Syracuse’s Doug Marrone as head coach. Marrone has previous NFL experience with the Jets and Saints. Among his new duties is turning rookie EJ Manuel into the Bills’ new franchise quarterback.
Buffalo had a record of 6-10 last season and 7-9 against the football spread.
The offseason has not been very kind to the Patriots, with Aaron Hernandez hitting the headlines accused of murder, Wes Welker leaving the team or Rob Gronkowski missing post-surgery rehab and partying instead.
It will be up to head coach Belichick and franchise QB Tom Brady to lead New England thru a tougher season this time around.
The Patriots lost the AFC Championship to the now Super Bowl Champs Baltimore. The Pats had an ATS record of 9-7 last season.
The last time these two teams met was back on Sunday November 11, 2012, when the Patriots at home took the victory with a score of 37-31. Bets on Buffalo covered the point spread as +13.5 underdogs, while the game went over the betting line of 54 points.
