Week 10: Monitoring Buffalo
After Nicole wreaked havoc along the east coast late this week, a cold air mass is filtering its way into the country. As a result, most of the US is going to be clear, with cooler temperatures this weekend. As of now, there are no significant impacts being forecasted for NFL Week 10 due to weather. However, we will continue to monitor the conditions in Buffalo, as there is a chance for some wind and lake effect precipitation for the game between the Minnesota Vikings at the Buffalo Bills.
With the remnants of Nicole pushing out to the north and east this weekend, much of the country is going to feel much cooler than it has any other time this fall. Temperatures are going to dip into the 30’s over much of the country, making things feel more seasonal (borderline winter?). This is aided by a deep trough digging into America's heartland and helping to unlock some of the cooler air to the north.
As of now, there are no significant risks due to weather. However, as stated above, we will continue to monitor conditions in Buffalo as there is a chance of some lake effect precipitation and elevated winds. This is not concerning at this point, but it is worth monitoring.
Game Impacts: Minnesota Vikings @ Buffalo Bills (1:05 pm ET)
DK Sports Book O/U: 42.5 pts
Temperatures in Buffalo for game time are forecasted to be the upper 30's/low 40’s with sustained winds 10-15 mph and gust 20-25 mph. There is a 40% chance of lake effect precipitation during game time.
As of now, we are not expecting impacts in this game. However, if precipitation does occur, it does increase risk and reduce the floor for both offenses, especially if Josh Allen is unable to start. Running backs may get a heavier workload with an already low O/U, indicating that Vegas is hedging on Allen potentially missing.
