Just When The Bills Mafia Thought It Couldn’t Get Worse…
The Buffalo Bills are a pretty bad football team, there's no other way around it. But I don't feel they deserve to be treated this poorly. Every year, a team is so down and out on it's luck, that Las Vegas experts create an imaginary match-up. It's always one really bad NFL team versus a top college team to see who the betting public thinks would win, and by how much. Would the Buffalo Bills beat Alabama. And if so, by how much?
I'm not a fan of the Buffalo Bills football team but I have love for their passionate, loyal, die-hard fans. The Bills Mafia are a fanatical bunch of stained jersey wearing, beer chuggin' rowdies capable of jumping through burning tables and other various parking lot shenanigans that would make even a Raiders fan blush.
But they don't deserve this treatment. The Bills would only beat a team of 18 and 19 year olds by how much?
According NYUP.com, Jeff Sherman, the VP at SuperBookUSA thinks a match-up between an NFL bottom feeder and an NCAA power would have the Bills favored to win by 28.5 points.
While I do believe even the Bills would absolutely crush Alabama by 40 or more, the reply tweets were hilarious:
"Hammering Bama. Bills aren't scoring 29 points against the wind" -Will Brinson
"Breaking News: An expert believes the Buffalo Bills are capable of scoring 28.5 points in 4 quarters" -Ryan Fowler
Funny stuff. And certainly a fun hypothetical for sports fans to debate. But the Buffalo Bills fans (not necessarily the players) don't deserve this.
I'd be betting the Bills and laying the points. I ain't betting against the Mafia.
