Buffalo QB Josh Allen has long since silenced the critics who beat up the bills for choosing him number 7 overall in the 2018 draft. But he has rewarded bettors who have supported him and the Bills all along. Those who bet on Allen earlier this season to win MVP honors and / or who joined the Bill’s Mafia in early 2021 will be cramming their pockets or online wallets this winter.
Allen has weather in New York and on sports betting sites in Ontario talking about NFL MVP honors and a trip to Super Bowl 56.
Allen led the Bills into the AFC Championship Game last season, but suffered a 38:24 loss to Patrick Mahomes II and the Kansas City Chiefs. In the continuation of Week 5 of 2021, Bill’s Mafia gave their hosts a hit and scored a 37:20 triumph at Arrowhead Stadium.
The Bills are now the top team that won the AFC and Allen the top pick in the MVP talk in the NFL futures markets. The Bills overtook Kansas City as the top pick in the AFC while Allen overtook Mahomes as the consensus MVP choice.
Odds makers and NFL betting experts have been big on the bills this season. Those who grabbed both Buffalo and Allen early were given a value that was unlikely to return. This week the Bills are visiting Tennessee on Monday night.
The odds increase after the success in 2021

This is how the odds for Allen and the Bills have developed this season at DraftKings and FanDuel.
Allen ended up in north New York after being drafted from Wyoming three years ago. He had a rough introduction to the NFL and AFC East, but showed a lot of raw skill.
He was originally destined to be the newest young AFC East passing talent to be washed out by supernova Tom Brady. But Brady left for Tampa Bay ahead of the 2020 season. The Patriots have selected rookie QB Mac Jones to lead their rebuilding.
All MVP betting favorite
As mentioned above, Allen has made a significant climb in the MVP betting markets in just five weeks. He’s now number 1 in the NFL. Mahomes was the first choice for preseason bettors

Here are the current MVP odds at FanDuel:
Allen’s preseason O / U for TD passes was up 34.5 at DraftKings.
Allen threw 37 touchdowns last season. We supported him in exceeding that number before the season started. He has 12 TD passes in 2021 and is well on his way to throwing 35 a year. As we suspected, this will be scarce. Bettors who support this over here might want the Bills to stay close to the competition in the AFC as that would mean Allen playing in all 17 games rather than sitting out the last game of the season when the team is in its playoff Position is locked.
The pass numbers among the top QBs in the league have been staggering this season. Six QBs average over 300 yards per game. Allen is ninth in the NFL with 1,370 yards of passing and an average of 274 YPG. His total was in the preseason

WR Emmanuel Sanders has finally come out to take some pressure off Stefon Diggs, especially in short distance situations. Given Buffalo’s success at playing the ball this season, the Bills are 5th in the NFL averaging 140.4 yards per game. Allen is unlikely to have to throw more as the season progresses.
Support for everyone A winning proposition
How well has Allen done against NFL spreads during his career?
Very well, thank you.
To start off, Allen is 31-20 (60.7%) ATS in his career. With those numbers, he ranks second behind Teddy Bridgewater among active NFL starting QBs against the spreads who have started more than 16 games. Sports betting and betting apps have shifted onto the bills in recent years due to the loyalty of Buffalo bettors and the legality (in retail stores) of sports betting in New York.

All of our records include the postseason and are via Pro Football Reference.
With our system of wagering $ 100 on Allen ATS every week of his career, with the industry standard -110 line per point spread bet available on most betting sites, the ones Allen have been doing weekly since his debut in 2018 supported, up $ 727 in less than three full seasons.
The wings and beer are on you.
