The Buffalo Bills had a promising 2022 season, but their journey ended in disappointment as they fell short in the AFC Divisional Round again.
Looking ahead to 2023, the return of Vonn Miller from a torn ACL will be a significant boost for the Bills’ defense, which was significantly injury-hit by the end of the campaign.
Additionally, the potential addition of an offensive playmaker like DeAndre Hopkins could significantly help Josh Allen and enhance Buffalo’s chances of competing with the Chiefs and Bengals at the top of the AFC.
Let’s look at the latest Bills betting odds for the 2023 NFL season.

Bills Super Bowl 58 Odds
Bills: Win Super Bowl (+900)
After being the favorites in the Super Bowl odds for most of last season, the Bills are considered strong contenders this time around.
After all, Buffalo has one of the NFL’s top quarterbacks in Josh Allen. It also has won 10-plus games and reached the playoffs each of the past four seasons.
Still, Sean McDermott’s squad has to prove it can get over the hump in the postseason. After three painful playoff exits, this team should be plenty motivated to overcome any obstacles it faces on the path to the Super Bowl.
Bills AFC Championship Odds
Bills: Win AFC Championship (+500)
The Bills (+500) are the second-favorites in the AFC Championship odds, falling only behind the Chiefs (+330) and just ahead of the Bengals (+550).
The team’s well-balanced roster, elite quarterback play, and history of recent results make them an obvious contender in the AFC.
However, they will face plenty of competition in a loaded conference that continues to bring in elite quarterbacks. Kansas City and Cincinnati are still significant hurdles that Buffalo has failed to clear in recent years, while dark horses like the Chargers, Dolphins, Jets, and Ravens are only getting better.
If you’re looking for more reasons to avoid this steep price, the Bills haven’t filled the hole at linebacker after losing Tremaine Edmunds in free agency, and keeping Gabe Davis in the No. 2 wideout spot remains a potential flaw.
Bills AFC East Winner Odds
Bills: Win AFC East (+115)
After winning three consecutive division titles, the Bills remain at the top of the AFC East odds.
However, the chasing pack is closing in. Last year, Buffalo didn’t run away with the division until December and was aided by some late-season blemishes by New York and Miami.
This offseason, the Jets and Dolphins have taken significant steps forward, while Buffalo has been rather quiet.
History would point to the Bills maintaining the division crown for another season, but this bet doesn’t feel as secure as it has in previous years.
Bills Make Playoffs Odds
Bills: Make Playoffs (-240)
While Buffalo could face a challenge for the AFC East crown, I’m not expecting this team to fall off the map entirely.
As long as Allen stays healthy, the Bills should make the playoffs for the fifth straight season.
Bills Regular-Season Win Total Odds
Bills: Over 10.5 Wins (-140)
The Bills’ win total is set at 10.5 games, with the Over (-140) taking more money than the Under 10.5 (+120).
Buffalo has cleared this mark each of the past three seasons, but will face its biggest challenge in 2023.
A difficult schedule is one of the reasons why, with non-divisional trips to Cincinnati, Kansas City, Los Angeles (Chargers), and Philadelphia on the docket for this season.
While 11 wins still feels like an achievable outcome, I don’t think I’d want to lock my money up and lay the -140 here on a team I’m not the most confident in.
