How will Pats players opting out affect playoff chances?
Anita Marks expects the Patriots to have a down season after seeing multiple key players opt out of the 2020 NFL season.
Buffalo Bills (25-1 to win Super Bowl; opened 28-1)
Odds to win AFC: 10-1
Odds to make playoffs: Yes -175, No +155
Bills under 9 wins (-105)
Johnson: Buffalo traded for Stefon Diggs and Tom Brady took his talents to Tampa Bay, and now it seems the whole world loves the Bills in 2020. I'm not in that camp. They shift from one of the easiest schedules in the NFL last season to one of the toughest (they face the AFC West and NFC West out of the division). They missed the fourth-fewest starts as a team in 2019, and when adjusting for the actual quality of those missed starts, the Bills were the healthiest team in the NFL by a fairly big margin last season.
