Tune in to the “Ultimate Betting Show” on NESN on Friday at 5:30 p.m. ET for daily NFL training camp previews. First up: the Buffalo Bills.

The Buffalo Bills’ 2021 season ultimately ended due to their inability to slow down Patrick Mahomes and the Kansas City Chiefs. The coin toss didn’t help, either, though.

Buffalo is on the short list of legitimate Super Bowl contenders entering the 2022 campaign. Josh Allen and company had a very clear path to Los Angeles a season ago but ultimately fell short in a divisional-round thriller at KC. Now, they’ll look to finish the job and deliver the Lombardi Trophy to western New York for the first time ever.

Here’s what bettors need to know about the 2022 Buffalo Bills:

Look ahead to 2022

Conference: +300
Division: -225
Win total: 11.5 (over -140)

2022 award contenders

2022 outlook
The betting market does tell the story for Buffalo: The Bills are the Super Bowl favorite, and Allen is the MVP front-runner. They have been building to this, and maybe the flip of a coin was the difference between going home and talking about them here as the defending champions. As long as Allen stays healthy, the Bills’ one and only goal is to win it all, and anything less would be a letdown.
