What are the Bills vs. Jaguars odds, our prediction, and what channel is the game on, or where can you stream this Week 9 matchup?

On the surface, this Buffalo Bills vs. Jacksonville Jaguars matchup appears a simple one to make a prediction for. However, with the NFL always springing surprises, could we be in for one here? Let’s take a look at the current NFL odds, TV channel, how to live stream, as well as make a prediction for Bills at Jaguars in Week 9.

Buffalo Bills vs. Jacksonville Jaguars prediction and odds | Week 9

  • Spread: Bills -14
  • Moneyline: Bills -1000, Jaguars +650
  • Over/Under: 49
  • Odds from DraftKings sportsbook

As you see, the sportsbooks’ prediction for Bills at Jaguars is not all that close, with a spread of 2 touchdowns. In the NFL, a spread of that size is always something to be wary of, as was proven last week with the ferocious comeback by Houston against Los Angeles. Then again, this game does appear to be a clear mismatch.

Heading into Week 9, the Bills are 5-2 against the spread and 4-2 covering when favored. Additionally, they have covered both double-digit spreads they have had this season, including Week 8 against the Miami Dolphins. The Bills have largely done exactly what is expected of them this season. In this soft part of the schedule, they will be looking to flex their muscles and bank some crucial wins for later in the year.

In contrast, the Jaguars are 2-5 against the spread, including a 2-4 record as underdogs. The Jaguars have also lost five games this season by double-digits, including an embarrassing 31-7 defeat last week coming off their bye. Entering this game, the Bills lead the league in points scored and points allowed. Meanwhile, the Jaguars are a bottom-10 team in both of those categories. This should be a comfortable game for the Bills, and with the Jets on the slate next week, there is no danger Buffalo gets caught looking ahead.

Bills vs. Jaguars prediction

This is one of those games where the Bills’ reputation in terms of the 2021 season can only go down. If they handle the Jaguars with comfort, people will shrug because that is what they should have done. However, if they stumble as they did last week against the Dolphins through three quarters, then eyebrows will be raised.

The stakes are somewhat higher for the Jaguars. After the good feeling of their Week 6 victory in London, they were brought crashing back down to earth by a Geno Smith-led Seahawks team. A sixth double-digit loss this season after serious investment in the offseason must lead to some difficult questions in Jacksonville.

The simple prediction here is to look at the Bills winning by somewhere between 10 and 17 points. It should be relatively comfortable for the Bills this week. However, if that is the case, we could see the Jaguars pull off a backdoor cover with a late score when the Bills drop into prevent mode.

Prediction: Bills 31, Jaguars 20
