Why Bet on the Green Bay Packers?
In their most recent contest, Green Bay fell to the Jets 23-14, bringing their record to 0-2. Kurt Benkert did all the heavy lifting for his team, as he had 151 yards on 18-of-25 passing, including one interception and one touchdown. Wide receiver Malik Taylor led the receiving corps with 66 yards and 4 receptions, followed by Amari Rodgers who had 31 yards and 4 receptions. Despite having 10 yards more than the Jets at 279 and six more plays at 59, the Packers failed to convert the opportunities.
Defensively, the team had to work harder against a more efficient Jets team. Innis Gaines and Henry Black fronted with 6 tackles (4 solos) each. Isaiah McDuffie had 4 tackles, while T.J. Slaton and Isaac Yiadom combined for 8 tackles in the game. It’s clear that the team packs a punch on the defensive end, but the Packers have to be more productive offensively if they want to break the Bills’ winning streak.
Why Bet on the Buffalo Bills?
The Bills are coming off a blowout victory against the Chicago Bears, taking down the NFC North team 41-15 to win their second game. After topping the AFC East last year, Sean McDermott is determined to bring his squad to the playoffs and compete for the Super Bowl trophy this season, and what better way to start than recording two-straight wins. They now have a chance at finishing the preseason with a perfect record as they host the Packers this coming Friday.
In their previous game, Mitch Trubisky was on fire, ending his night with 221 yards and a touchdown on 20-of-28 pass completions. Fullback Reggie Gilliam also performed well, rushing for 24 yards and 2 touchdowns on 8 carries. On the receiving end, it was Isaiah McKenzie who topped the unit with 72 yards and 7 receptions throughout the game.
All in all, the Bills’ offense worked like a well-oiled machine. Meanwhile, the defense was pretty much ironclad. Carlos Basham Jr. and Andre Smith finished with 5 tackles each, and Nick McCloud had 2 tackles and an interception.

Packers vs. Bills Expert Betting Predictions
Looking at previous preseason results alone, the Bills look dangerous. With momentum and home-field advantage on their side, there will be less pressure on the team. More than that, both offensive and defensive sides show consistency throughout the games. However, the Packers could also be due for a win just before the preseason ends. All in all, we are bound for another interesting matchup in Week 3.
