Buffalo Bills @ Houston Texans | Saturday, Jan. 4, 4:35 PM EST on ESPN
Ben Rolfe at Oddschecker likes the under in this one just like we do, but he also likes the Bills on the road at +2.5 at -110.
Rolfe highlights the fact that this Buffalo defense is special, but the offense is a bit of a different story when it comes to putting points on the board. For Houston, it’s the lack of consistency they’ve shown on their home turf that’s concerning.
“The concern for me here is the form the Texans have demonstrated this season at home. Their only two covers have come against a reeling Atlanta Falcons team, and as underdogs against the New England Patriots. Meanwhile the Bills have been extremely strong on the road and have managed to overcome the inconsistencies of their offense. In this game the key matchup will be the Bills run game against a Texans run defense which has struggled. The Bills should be able to control this game on the ground and put up enough points to at least stay close in this one.”

Tennessee Titans @ New England Patriots | Saturday, Jan. 4, 8:15 PM EST on CBS
While this game may scream ‘take the under,’ we actually like the over in this one and Rolfe is getting even more specific in the over department and likes the Titans to score more than 19.5 points at -120.
Tennessee has scored at least 20 points in every game Ryan Tannehill has started this season while New England has allowed 20 or more points in four of its last five contests.
“The Patriots defense looks really worn down and the Titans offense is rolling right now. Even without Derrick Henry in Week 16 they took it to the New Orleans Saints and demonstrated their potential. There is so much power in this offense, but there is also the opportunity for explosive plays with both AJ Brown and Jonnu Smith having plenty of potential. This line feels about a field goal too short, especially with the Patriots allowing 27 points against the Dolphins last week.”
