- Josh Allen is expected to face a dangerous defense in dangerous weather conditions on Monday.

- There will be winds ranging from 20-40 MPH during the game, as well as a possibility of snow.
BUFFALO, N.Y. - Josh Allen has been struggling recently, passing for under 270 yards in four of his last five games. The Buffalo Bills’ signal-caller averaged 284 yards per game last year, and even this year is averaging 279 yards per game, but he’s hit a bit of a slump.
His team has slumped with him - the Bills haven’t strung together two consecutive wins since Weeks 4 and 5.
Against a resurgent New England Patriots team riding a six-game win streak, can Allen find himself in time for his Bills to take a commanding position in the AFC East divisional race?
Josh Allen Passing Yards O/U Odds
- Over 235.5 -114
- Under 235.5 -114
Allen will have other adversaries than the Patriots on Monday, however. The weather is expected to be awful, with winds ranging from 20-40 mph at kickoff, although it is expected to taper off as the game goes on.
Temperatures will be low, running in the 20-30 degree range, and there is a chance of snow in addition to these already formidable difficulties.
"Whatever the weather has in store for us, we'll have to adjust, and find out. But so does the other team," said Allen, addressing the likely difficulties he’ll face on Monday. "We all know what Buffalo is and how things can change in an instant. I have to be ready to play in whatever type of weather and execute a game plan."
This is to say nothing of the rock-solid New England Patriots defense, which has limited opposing teams to 200.9 pass yards per game, third in the league.

One of two teams above them in this category is Allen’s very own Buffalo Bills, so he should have some experience against elite pass defenses simply from practice, but the online sportsbooks are still bearish on his yards totals.
Josh Allen Passing Touchdowns O/U Odds
- Over 1.5 -115
- Under 1.5 -112
The Patriots are also near the top of the NFL in terms of passing touchdowns allowed - they’re giving up an average of 1.2 per game, second in the NFL. They are once again second to the very team they’ll be facing, however - the Buffalo Bills lead the league in this category, giving up a minuscule 0.7 passing touchdowns per game.
Allen has only had two games with less than two passing touchdowns on the season - in normal conditions, this bet would be a lock.
However, between the awful weather and the prowess of the Patriots’ defense, NFL betting fans will have to question whether Allen is up to the task.
The Buffalo Bills take on the New England Patriots on Monday Night Football. The game will kick off at 8:15 p.m. EST and will be broadcast on ESPN.
