The New England Patriots are red hot while the Buffalo Bills are the defending AFC East champions.

In a game that will play a huge part in the way the division crown is awarded in 2021, the Bills (7-4) are the slightest of favorites over the Patriots (8-4) heading into Week 13.

Slated for a Monday Night Football matchup, Buffalo has opened as a three-point favorite next week. That line comes to us via Tipico Sportsbook (access USA TODAY Sports’ betting odds for a full list).

While given the edge, as it typically goes in the sportsbooks, this might be different if played elsewhere.

Buffalo is the home team and usually the spread gives a three-point bump to the hosts . Since that’s the Bills, if this upcoming contest was in New England, the spread might be a different story.

Or if we were at a neutral site, we might be looking at a pick ’em.

While the Bills did sweep the Pats last season, as referenced, the visitors are hot. New England is currently on a NFL best six-game winning streak.

Buffalo hasn’t been as consistent this season, but they’re still fresh off another blowout win themselves. The New Orleans Saints were on the wrong end of that one on Thanksgiving, a 31-6 final.

In addition to the spread, the over/under for the contest in Orchard Park opens at 44. The moneyline sits at Bills (-152) and Patriots (+128).
