The Buffalo Bills are 6-2 this season after they lost to the New York Jets by a score of 20-17 in their last game. Buffalo led this game 14-3 in the second quarter, but couldn’t get the offense going in the second half and was only able to score three points for the loss. The Buffalo offense is averaging 27.5 points per game with 292.1 passing yards per game and 124.3 rushing yards per game. Josh Allen is questionable for this game and will be a game time decision.

Minnesota is 3-1-1 ATS in their last 5 November games and 1-3-1 ATS in their last 5 road games. The over is 11-5 in Minnesota’s last 16 games. Buffalo is 5-1-1 ATS in their last 7 home games and 11-4-1 ATS in their last 16 November games. The under is 6-0 in Buffalo’s last 6 games.
Josh Allen’s status for this game is obviously the biggest headline of this game. If Allen is able to play, I love the Bills to win this by a field goal. If Allen is not able to play, I like Minnesota with the points. The Vikings have done a good job of taking advantage of backup quarterbacks and mistakes by the opposing team this year and this would be no exception. I have the feeling that Allen will not play, so I am going to take Minnesota.
