Call me crazy, but I have no clue why Cleveland is favored here, maybe someone sees something I don't see. Yes, the Browns are at home and the Bills’ 6 wins haven’t been a murderers’ row of opposition, but this is a Browns team that’s in full on struggle mode and just lost to a Denver team sending a QB out who had never thrown a pass in a game prior to last week. There’s something seriously wrong with the Browns right now and I’m not going anywhere near them until they figure it out, especially as a favorite. I’ll take my free field with what I think is the better team getting points, and that’s Buffalo.
