Here’s the latest installment of the Play of the Day, which uses odds from the South Point. Our three sports writers started with a $10,000 bankroll — fictional, of course.
Buffalo Bills minus-2.5 vs. New York Giants in NFL Hall of Fame game: $550 to win $500 It’s been a long offseason with no football to bet on. But rejoice! Starting today, we will have a NFL game to handicap every Sunday through Super Bowl weekend in early February. Let’s start making some money back!
Be warned: The parity-driven NFL is nearly impossible to handicap in the preseason. When first-team players see limited action, it’s like flipping a coin. Heads or tails?
With that in mind, there is still small value in Buffalo. Its fans traveled by the masses to Canton, Ohio, to support Andre Reed on Saturday for his induction into the Pro Football Hall of Fame. They’ll stay for Sunday’s game, trying to make a statement to the football world that Buffalo is a pro city. The Bills could be sold and moved to Toronto — something fans are obviously fighting. They’ll have the nation’s attention Sunday. Expect them to be loud and proud. And expect the Bills to easily beat the Giants.
Standings: Bern (41-28-1, $14,234), Keefer (32-37, $8,942), Brewer (29-38-3, $4,015)
