The Buffalo Bills haven’t made the playoffs since 1999. Their drought is the longest in the NFL, and the longest of any franchise in the four major professional sports. It’s no wonder that the fans in Buffalo are excited about their team’s 4-2 SU and ATS start. But can they keep it up and finally get back to the playoffs?

 

Will Ezekiel Elliott rush for 130 or more yards in Week 8?

Yes: +300
No:  -500

Ezekiel Elliott has rushed for more than 100 yards in four straight games, but can he do that against the Eagles’ top-flight defense? Elliott did run for 157 yards two weeks ago against the Green Bay Packers, who have the NFL’s top-ranked rush defense; however, the Packers are giving up 7.9 yards per pass (26th in NFL), so teams have been exploiting them that way. The Eagles’ defense is third in the NFL in points per game allowed (14.7), but they’re 24th in yards per carry allowed (4.5), so Elliott should find some room to run.

 

Will Ezekiel Elliott Break Eric Dickerson’s Single-Season Rushing Record (2,105 Yards)?

Yes: +1000
No:   -5000

No recent greats have broken Eric Dickerson’s single-season rushing record, and that includes players like Adrian Peterson, Barry Sanders and Terrell Davis, so it’ll be an uphill battle for Elliott. There are fewer games in a college football season than NFL, meaning Elliott has never had as many carries in a season as he’ll need to break Dickerson’s record. Elliott’s high mark for carries was 289 in college; he’s already at 173 this year and is on pace for 365. He’s played exceptionally well, but is on pace for 1,875 rushing yards. He’d need to play even better down the stretch to reach 2,105 yards.

 

Who Will Record More Passing Yards in Week 8?

Carson Wentz: -140
Dak Prescott: Even

The Eagles-Cowboys showdown will pit two rookie quarterbacks against each other. Each of these young studs has been impressive so far, but Prescott has been more consistent. While Wentz has the highest one-game passing total of the two quarterbacks (301 yards versus Pittsburgh), he has also thrown for less than 180 yards in each of his last two games. Prescott has thrown for at least 227 yards in each contest this season while averaging 247.7 passing yards per game on the season. Wentz, on the other hand, is averaging 220.7 yards per game on the season.

 

Will Tom Brady Throw an Interception in Week 8?

Yes: +110
No:   -150

Tom Brady has yet to throw an interception this season and will try to extend his streak when the Patriots face the Buffalo Bills this Sunday. The Bills are second in the league with turnover ratio at +8, are fourth in sacks per attempt and lead the NFL in red zone defense. But their numbers are based on softer quarterbacks like Joe Flacco, Ryan Fitzpatrick, Carson Palmer, Jacoby Brissett, Case Keenum, Colin Kaepernick and Ryan Tannehill. The Patriots want revenge for their Week 4 loss to Buffalo and their offense is firing on all cylinders.
