Miami is 4-1 ATS in their last 5 Saturday games and 3-7 ATS in their last 10 games. The over is 4-1 in Miami’s last 5 road games. Buffalo is 2-5 ATS in their last 7 games and 2-5-1 ATS in their last 8 games against a team with a winning record. The under is 9-2 in Buffalo’s last 11 games. The over is 6-1 in these two teams last 7 head to head meetings in Buffalo.
Buffalo comes into this game on a four game winning streak and will have home field advantage for this matchup. Miami has lost two games in a row and there are questions about how they will handle the cold weather in Buffalo. Both teams have explosive offenses, but Miami has a struggling defense. I think this game will turn into a shootout and I like the over.
