Well, the last nine days have seen quite a bit of upheaval with the Buffalo Bills, as well as enough rumors to fill an entire season. Buffalo has made a major change on its coaching staff, and we will see the result of that on Sunday as this team faces off against the Arizona Cardinals, beginning at 1 PM ET at New Era Field in Orchard Park, NY. This game will be televised regionally over the Fox Network, and BetAnySports customers will have the chance to place wagers on it even after it starts, utilizing the considerable facilities of Live Betting Ultra.
Arizona lost its opening game to the New England Patriots, who were starting Jimmy Garoppolo at quarterback, and that was certainly disappointing, especially as it happened at home. But they showed what they were capable of by roaring back with a 40-7 victory over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, intercepting Jameis Winston four times. If they confounded Winston, there is a good chance that they will keep Tyrod Taylor off-balance. The Bills’ quarterback threw for two long touchdowns last time out against the New York Jets, but didn’t do a whole lot otherwise. This has been an offense marked by inconsistency, and that is one of the reasons head coach Rex Ryan announced the firing of offensive coordinator Greg Roman the day after the 37-31 loss to the Jets.
In the pro football betting lines posted on this game by the people at BetAnySports, the Cardinals are laying points on the road:
Arizona Cardinals -3.5
Buffalo Bills +3.5
Over 47 points -110
Under 47 points -110
The rumors have been flying, and they include the idea that Bills owner Terry Pegula ordered the firing of Roman. That has been emphatically denied by all sides, but one cannot help but think Ryan was looking for a scapegoat. While it is true that the offense has not performed the way it should, the defense has to take a lot of the responsibility as well. Ryan Fitzpatrick of the Jets, who had previously experienced nothing but headaches against Rex’s defenses, threw for 374 yards and at times made it look easy.
Opponents have averaged 36 minutes of possession time in these first two games, and that is not the way coach Ryan wanted it at all. BetAnySports patrons who followed this team last year know that they were #1 in the NFL in rushing, and the belief is that Anthony Lynn, who is now the new coordinator, will get back to basics, including more use of Shady McCoy, the former All-Pro who has averaged only 3.8 yards per carry.
Still, Buffalo is really going to have to improve its third-down efficiency, as they of converted only 26% thus far. And Arizona is pretty good at keeping down the big-play, allowing only 5.6 yards per passing attempt. As far as their offense is concerned, the Cardinals should have some receivers with enough size to give Buffalo’s defensive backs a hard time, and Carson Palmer has not thrown an interception in his first 68 attempts.
