After last week’s debacle of Thursday NFL games, I think I am now a combined 1-332 in predicting Thursday games.
That’s not very good.
Not sure why that is. Do teams get pumped for a Thursday game the same way they do for a Monday nighter? Is it because they’re on national television?
Who knows. All I know is that Thursday night games always give me trouble for some reason.
New York Jets at Buffalo Bills, Jets favoured by 2 1/2
Technically, this is a home game for the Bills, even though they’re playing in Toronto. The Jets have a record of 3-4 as the favourites, while the Bills have a record of 5-3 as the underdogs.
What’s more, is that the Jets are 2-6 in their last eight games, defeating only the Carolina Panthers and the Oakland Raiders. Mark Sanchez doesn’t look to be as great as what he was in the first three games of the season.
As a nice bonus stat, the Bill defeated the Jets earlier this season in New York.
Throw in a new coach and a happy Terrell Owens, this all adds up to a Toronto… er… Buffalo win.
Bills to win.
