Bills 2021 Season Preview
Looking for 2021 Buffalo Bills Predictions? You’ve come to the right place. Short of winning the Super Bowl I am not sure any team had a better season than Buffalo. Sure the Chiefs might have beat them in the playoffs and made the “big game” but Buffalo has taken control of the AFC East and looks poised to do a lot of winning.
They are as set at the quarterback position as any team in the league and have shown a knack for bringing in the right pieces to improve. The defense slid a little but some of that was health so improvement can be expected.
Buffalo is looking great for 2021 and beyond.
NFL Bills Predictions & Handicapping Insight
2021/22 NFL Team Predictions – Buffalo Bills
- Bills 2021 Win Total NFL Odds: 10.5 (Over -155/Under +127)
- Buffalo Bills AFC East Odds: -150
- Buffalo Bills AFC Championship Odds: +600
- Buffalo Bills 2022 Super Bowl Odds: +1200
- DE Gregory Rousseau
- WR Emmanuel Sanders
- QB Mitch Trubisky
The Bills used the draft to add to their pass rush which was only about league average last season. Rousseau has amazing measurables and should be able to be an immediate contributor.
Sanders is one of the craftiest receivers in the game. He is going to be where he is supposed to be and should take advantage of the development of Josh Allen. He is going to have a good year but might take some catches away from Cole Beasley. They are very similar.
Speaking of Allen, he is awesome but he takes his hits because of his style of play. Trubisky is an upgrade over last year’s backup Matt Barkley.
- WR John Brown
- DE Trent Murphy
- CB Josh Norman
Brown is one of the fastest receivers in the league which paired great with Allen’s big arm but he always had trouble staying healthy.
Murphy has been a mainstay with the Bills for years. While always having a high motor his production had been on the wane.
Norman is well past his best seasons in Carolina. Ever since he left the Panthers he has not justified anything close to anything other than a league-average corner.
2021 Buffalo Bills Predictions: Offseason Analysis
The big question about the Bills and the only reason for the excitement to be dampened is whether Josh Allen is for real. He was so good last season, leading the second-best offense in the NFL. That was primarily because the Bills were the second-best passing team in the NFL.
I am a believer and see no reason he doesn’t repeat that kind of year. His numbers might take a small hit if they do decide they want to run the ball a little more.
They were just 20th in that area.
Swapping out Brown for Sanders might make that a little better and the offensive line is intact. There is no reason for them not to be great again, they led the AFC in scoring 31.2ppg.
The offense carried the defense last season. The 23ppg they allowed was far from terrible but that unit should be better this season. For starters they get Star Lotulelei back in the middle of that defense (he sat out due to COVID last season). They also hopefully get a full season from LB Matt Milano.
The Bills play a 4-2-5 and they need those 2 to be strong. Tre’Davious White is an elite corner and I love the way he plays with an edge. The pass rush is where they need to be better. Rousseau and Boogie Basham were their first two picks. If they can increase the heat on opposing QBs that will make the defense even better.
It will help close the gap when they play really good teams, where outscoring them is a little more challenging.
2021 Buffalo Bills Win Total Prediction:
The Bills only lost three games a year ago, one was by just two points at Arizona and another was that weirdo game on a Tuesday against the Chiefs. This season they look great to best that 10.5 total but shop around because you don’t want to juice up a bet like that too much.
In looking at the schedule the Bills have a great chance to get off to a good start with four very winnable games to start including three at home. Back-to-back games on the road against Tennessee, two teams that beat them last year are tough ones heading into an October bye week.
After that they only have one other tough stretch hosting Indy, then at New Orleans on a Thursday night, hosting the Pats on Monday and then at Tampa. That group looks a lot less daunting if the Pats are not improved and the Saints slip without Drew Brees. Both are 50/50 proposition.
Buffalo won 13 games last season and have a great chance t match that total this season, especially with the 17th game added. I don’t see any losses at home on the schedule and they are likely favoured in all but a few on the road.
