2016 NFL odds: Jaguars are 7-point underdogs to Bills

NFL: International Series-Buffalo Bills at Jacksonville Jaguars Steve Flynn-USA TODAY Sports

After a disaster of a showing against the Detroit Lions, the Jacksonville Jaguars are once again underdogs by a touchdown on the road, with Vegas making the Buffalo Bills seven-point favorites at home.

Even though the Jaguars kept the score closer than I thought they would (and a garbage time field goal is the only thing that covered the spread for the Lions) it was only because of awful play by both teams that the score was as close as it was. Detroit ran for just 14 yards, didn't get a sack, turned the ball over twice, missed an extra point, muffed a punt, allowed three sacks on Matt Stafford... and still led for most of the game.

I suspect the Bills will be a bit better prepared and with the Jaguars going back up north for the second time in as many weeks, this one could get ugly.

Bet the Bills plus-seven and spend that money on beers to celebrate the fact there are only five more games left.
