Bills at Rams Betting Preview
Now let’s continue with the Bills at Rams Betting preview!
A while ago, the line for this game was set at Pick Em, but oddsmakers quickly refreshed those numbers after the news of Mathew Stafford’s elbow problems.
But, everyone at the Rams organization was downplaying the talks about Stafford’s elbow during the weekend.
This includes Stafford himself, who mentioned this after Saturday’s team practice: “I don’t know if you guys were watching, I felt like I could make any throw I wanted today.”
There is still some time left before this game takes place, and by the time the game starts, Stafford’s elbow situation can be just one more training camp story.
That being said, the markets are indeed reacting.
And, we all well know that the NFL is a quarterback-driven league.
So, with Stafford hurrying to get back in top shape before a game versus the top prospect to get the MVP, chances are that the Rams, even though they are playing at home, will struggle against Buffalo.
