2017 Buffalo Bills Futures Bet

Season Win Total Prediction

Buffalo rebuilding…. again.

Head coach Rex Ryan and general manager Doug Whaley were fired, as was the entire scouting and personnel staff. Sean McDermott is the new coach; his former colleague with the Carolina Panthers, Brandon Beane, is the new GM,

Offense?

Tyrod Taylor is back for at least 2017, though the Bills hedged their bets by signing veteran free agent T.J. Yates and drafting Nathan Peterman in the fifth round. The Bills have been the best running team in the NFL in each of the past two seasons, but they also one of the worst passing teams. Top wide receiver Sammy Watkins has to stay healthy or the passing game will not improve. Update…he has been traded and it looks like the Bills are already looking to 2018.

New coach, new defense.

Last season the Bills ranked 16th in points allowed and 29th in rushing yards allowed. The Bills defensive personnel are better suited to McDermott’s 4-3 defensive scheme, because linemen such as Marcell Dareus and Kyle Williams can return to tackle positions, while Jerry Hughes and Shaq Lawson can go out and be pass-rushing ends.

 

2017 Buffalo Bills season win total prediction


The Bills have brought in new coaches and they should be better on defense. However, the offense really shows no sign of improving. I have the Bills falling out of the playoff hunt early. This will allow the new staff to take a look at a lot of young talent, including at quarterback. Taking the under on 6.5 wins. I am making my bet at 5dimes.eu because they have a +105 under 6.5 wins. I am going to split my under bet at 5dimes.eu with half under 6.5 (+105) and half on under 6 (+176). 5dimes.eu is the one online sportsbook you need to checkout for futures betting. They offer several win totals on each team.

After the Watkins trade I am still on the under. The Bills are a 4 win team this season.
