How Buffalo Bills Betting Odds Are Calculated

Oddsmakers for every sportsbook will have their own method for calculating the odds of a game for the Buffalo Bills. But most will use some combination of advanced math, algorithms, complex statistics, and any information deemed relevant to the Bills or the opponent. 

Oddsmakers will decide how likely an event will occur during a game using this information along with their respective experience. That likelihood or probability will get expressed in the form of a point spread, moneyline, and/or total.

Once the opening line gets set, it is subject to change depending on a host of factors, including how the public bets, injury news, inclement weather conditions, COVID-related absences, etc.

Let’s look at the odds for the Wild Card game on January 15 against the New England Patriots: 

 Point SpreadMoneylineTotal (Over/Under)
New England Patriots+4.0 (-110)+16543.0 (-110)
Buffalo Bills-4.0 (-110)-19543.0 (-110)

Buffalo Bills Moneyline Odds

If you want to pick a winner without a point spread involved, you want the moneyline. To keep people from just taking the favorite all the time, sportsbooks give you the chance to win more if you bet on the underdog, and they win. What you win is indicated by the moneyline.

Let’s say you take the Bills to beat the Patriots and bet the moneyline, -195. That means you will need to bet $195 to win $100. But if you take the Patriots at +165 and they win, a $100 bet will win you $165. 

You do not have to bet $100, of course. Plug the odds and your wager into an odds calculator to find out what any bet will win.

Buffalo Bills Points Spread

Betting the spread refers to the point spread. If you take the Bills (-4.0), you will have to subtract four points from their final score. If that number is still higher than what the Patriots score, you win the bet. You will need to bet $110 to win $100. 

Buffalo Bills Futures Odds 

Super Bowl LVI+800+800+750
AFC Championship+350- +370

Buffalo Bills Prop Bets

Prop bets, or proposition bets, are wagers bettors can make regarding whether something does or does not happen during a game (or series)—and not tied to the game’s outcome. Sportsbooks will often offer prop bets regarding a quarterback’s production in a game, whether it is over or under a given number. 

Also included in the definition are things like Super Bowl MVP, whether the Bills will go 17-0 during the regular season (exotics), most passing yards, etc. 

For example, last season, fans had the option of betting on Josh Allen to throw for over or under 300+ yards in the AFC title game against the Kansas City Chiefs (-112), but he ended up throwing for only 287 yards.
