The Buffalo Bills will not be playing in their final game in 2021 on Sunday against the New York Jets, who will be doing just that.

That sentence explains how different the two teams have seen their respective seasons go… and thus, why the betting odds have opened the way they are.

The Bills (10-6) have opened as huge favorites over the Jets (4-12) ahead of their meeting in Buffalo on Sunday. Buffalo has a three-score edge as a 16.5-point favorite. That line comes to us via Tipico Sportsbook (access USA TODAY Sports’ betting odds for a full list).

The spread comes from a clear angle.

Buffalo has a ton to play for. In order to lock up the AFC East title for a second-straight year, they must win, most likely.

That is, unless the New England Patriots lose to the Miami Dolphins, who have nothing to play for this weekend.

Similarly, New York has been looking forward to the offseason for a few weeks already. They have only pride on the line.

Plus, there’s Round 1 that’s worth mentioning. The Bills completely routed the Jets in that one, 45-17.

In addition to the spread, the over/under opens at 45.5. The moneyline sits at Bills (-1350) and Jets (+810).
