Since their last NFL playoff appearance in 1999 – currently the longest dry spell in the league – the Buffalo Bills have proven to be the picture of a team treading water. In fact, they’ve pulled their heads above water just twice since 2000, with 9-7 marks in 2004 and 2014.
The Bills have gone 8-8 three times, 7-9 four times and 6-10 on five occasions over that span. In the past three seasons, Buffalo was 9-7, 8-8 and 7-9 – exactly 24-24.
Could this be the year that the playoff dry spell finally ends for the Bills? Don’t hold your breath waiting on that one, and most importantly, don’t wager on it happening.

How To Win Buffalo Bills Bets
One area of wagering where the Bills excelled in 2016 was in the total. Along with AFC East division rivals the Miami Dolphins and the Washington Redskins, the Bills were an NFL-best 12-4-0 in the over-under last season. At home, the Bills went over in all eight games, joining the NFC champion Atlanta Falcons as the only teams to do so.
While betting on the Bills to win isn’t a healthy approach, betting on LeSean McCoy to defend his NFL rushing title might not be a bad wager to make. True, no back has repeated as the league’s leading rusher since San Diego’s LaDainian Tomlinson did it in 2006 and 2007 but McCoy figures to be the centerpiece of the Buffalo offense, and that equals plenty of times he’ll have his hands on the ball. Bovada will even give you +10,000 on McCoy winning the NFL MVP award.
