Pick via FOX Sports Betting Analyst Will Hill

I was all over the Cowboys last week, but I’m going the other way this time. 

The Cowboys are fresh off of an emotional statement win against their division rivals, and now have to go on the road to take on a desperate Bills squad. 

Dallas is a warm-weather dome team that loves to play at home. Here they have to travel and play outdoors in cold conditions against a team that needs every win it can get to stay alive. 

This is the perfect letdown spot for the visitors. I like the Bills to keep it going. 

PICK: Bills (-2.5) to win by more than 2.5 points
