How can the 1-6, New York Jets be favored to win over the Buffalo Bills this week who have a winning record? I will try to explain why this happened, and yes Vegas wants you to pick the Bills.

According to Pregame, Jets(-3) are the FIRST 1-6 team to be favored over a winning team, #Bills, ever.
The problem with this pick is the Bills are struggling right now, and they lost their running backs. The Jets gained a weapon in Percy Harvin from the Seahawks and Rex Ryan is on the hot seat.
If the Jets do not come out and beat the Buffalo Bills this game at home, then Rex Ryan could be without a job. John Idzik the general manager has finally made a move to land Rex Ryan a star player and if it does not work out I would expect Rex to be on the way out. The team is favored because the Jets SHOULD win this game. I am a huge Buffalo Bills fan, but I too am very scared of this game. Something is not right, I would stay away from this game on your ticket.
Remember the Bills have not won in New Jersey since 2009….
