Bills at Titans Betting Preview: Bills (-3/-111), Titans (+3/+101)
Most rebuilding teams vow to build around a young quarterback, then botch the process by not getting him enough weapons. The Bills followed through on their promise to develop Josh Allen by acquiring proven veteran receivers like John Brown, Cole Beasley and Stefon Diggs the last two years.
And Allen has become an MVP candidate by averaging more than 331 yards passing per game in a 4-0 start. Diggs is on a pace to catch a career-high 104 passes, while Brown continues to stretch defenses and Beasley’s ability to move the chains and find open spots is a valuable complement to his teammates.
One concern for Buffalo is its defense, which has allowed at least 23 points in each of the last three games. And it will have to button things up against an opponent that has a sledgehammer running back in Derrick Henry, plus a quarterback in Ryan Tannehill who has resurrected his career.
Through three games, the Titans have found ways to win close games. Stephen Gostkowski has hit winning kicks late and the defense has made stops at the end to protect narrow leads against Jacksonville and Minnesota.
Now what? Is there any way to predict what this team will do in this game after not playing for 16 days due to the COVID-19 outbreak that has affected 23 players and staffers? Can a team regain its identity following the kind of situation Tennessee’s been embroiled in since its last game?
Another source of worry for Titans fans might be their secondary against Buffalo’s high-powered passing attack. Tennessee has notched only four sacks in three games, and if its front seven can’t generate a consistent pass rush against Josh Allen, it might be a long night for the DBs.
Bills at Titans Betting Pick for October 13, 2020
It’s hard to know just what to expect from this game. Tuesday night is normally a player’s one night off from the sport during a week, and it won’t be this time. An unevenly played game, rife with big plays and some astounding mistakes, isn’t out of the question.
When you get that kind of game, you often get a lot of points. And with offenses capable of lighting up a scoreboard, it wouldn’t be shocking if both teams got to or over 30. The guess is that Allen leads a late drive that keeps Buffalo unbeaten.
Bills at Titans Betting Pick:
Bills 31, Titans 30

The trends all suggest hammering the over. Dating back to last year, 12 of Tennessee’s last 16 games have hit the over. Four of Buffalo’s last five games, counting its playoff loss last season in Houston, have gone over. With two good offenses and defenses that have proven susceptible to big plays at times, play the over on Tuesday night and cash in later.
