After both teams lost and failed to cover the spread in their Week 1 games, the Jets and Bills will try to stay out of an 0-2 hole when they face off on Thursday Night Football. This hasn’t been much of a rivalry the past few seasons as the Bills have gone 5-0 SU and ATS in the last five games between the teams. The turnover differential was the story of those games as New York coughed up the ball 18 times compared with just one giveaway by Buffalo.

- The Bills are 19-6 ATS in their last 25 games in Week 2.
- The Jets are 2-7 SU in their last 9 games on the road after a loss on the road.
- The total has gone UNDER in the Jets’ last 3 games against the Bills.
Buffalo has been a money bet at home as they’ve covered the spread in seven of their last 10 games at Ralph Wilson Stadium, including four straight home covers to close out last season. These trends carry over from previous seasons, but the Bills have been great at bouncing back as they’ve gone 8-3 SU and ATS in their last 11 games after a loss.
The Jets were a team to fade on the road last season as they finished the year with just one cover in their final six road games. Jets QB Ryan Fitzpatrick struggled in the two games vs Buffalo last season. His 49.9 QB rating against them was his lowest of any team he played.
With the spread in this game expected to be a tight one, it should be noted that these teams rarely have close matchups. They haven’t had a game decided by three points or less since October 2009, and the average margin of victory over their last eight games has been 16.75 points.
