Odds to win AFC East: +2000
Odds to win Super Bowl: 120 to 1
In order to get the betting community interested in what your team is doing, you first need to make necessary changes to the areas where your team is lacking. The NFL betting experts are not giving the Buffalo Bills much of a chance to win anything in 2010 because the Bills did nothing to give themselves a chance.
When the Buffalo Bills entered the 2010 NFL draft, the team desperately needed a quarterback. Currently on the Buffalo Bills roster for quarterbacks is Trent Edwards, Ryan Fitzpatrick and Brian Brohm. Last year it was Edwards who started the season and was promptly benched for Fitzpatrick. Neither quarterback could win and the Bills ended the season at 6-10. Brohm is a career back-up, even to quarterbacks the quality of Edwards and Fitzpatrick.
With the Bills already set in their ways at quarterback, the next need in the draft was a pass rusher that impacted NCAA football betting and had a chance to doing the same in the NFL. The Buffalo Bills, instead, chose running back C.J. Spiller to add to a list of two other starting running backs on the Bills roster. This probably spells the end of Marshawn Lynch’s time in Buffalo, but that hardly addresses any of the problems the Bills have going into the 2010 season.
With their current trend of decision making in both player personnel and coaching staff choices, the Bills look to be out of the Super Bowl odds picture for a very long time. Head coach Chan Gailey got the job because no other coach wanted it. The Bills publicly courted such names as Bill Cowher and Charlie Weiss, but when it came down to it no one wanted to coach in Buffalo.
On defense the Bills have no one to put pressure up front, and if defensive end Aaron Schoebel retires then the Bills will have no pass rush to speak of. The secondary is not talented enough to make up for the lack of a pass rush, and the linebackers are incapable of staying healthy for an entire season.
It will be a long, cold season in Buffalo again. The Bills will be lucky to win six games in 2010, and unless there are some serious changes in attitude in the Bills front office it will be a while before Bills fans can even dream about a playoff berth.
