The Cleveland Browns and Buffalo Bills face off on Sunday in an NFL showdown at Ford Field. This game was moved from Buffalo because of the snowstorm.
The Browns come into this game with a 3-6 record overall and they have gone 4-5 against the spread. The Browns have been up and down this season and coming into this game they have lost five of their last six games. Against the Miami Dolphins, the defense really struggled giving up 39 points, and they were blown out. Jacoby Brissett did play pretty well though completing 22 of his 35 passes for 212 yards, one touchdown, and zero interceptions. Nick Chubb finished with 11 carries 63 yards and a touchdown. The Browns are averaging 24.1 points while their defense is giving up 26.4 points per game. The defense is ranked 31st in the NFL, and is going to need to be a lot better here.
On the other side of this matchup is the Buffalo Bills who sit with a 6-3 record overall and they have gone 4-4-1 against the spread. Even though it’s been a good season, they have lost two games in a row. Against the Vikings in the last game, they blew a big 4th quarter lead. Josh Allen just needed to get the ball out of the end zone late but fumbled it and blew the game. Allen finished the game throwing for 330 yards, one touchdown, and two interceptions. He needs to clean up the turnovers in this game. The Bills are averaging 27.8 points while their defense is giving up 16.8 points per game. Devin Singletary scored two touchdowns in the last game, and they are going to need a more balanced rushing attack going forward.
The Bills are 3-0-1 against the spread in their last 4 games after allowing more than 30 points in their previous game. The under is 5-0 in the Bills last five games against the AFC. The under is 6-0 in the Bills last six games in Week 11.
If this game was in Buffalo there might not even be 20 points scored, but since this game is indoors, there is no worry about the weather. Josh Allen is going to have no issue against this Browns defense that is giving up 26.4 points per game. Don’t be shocked when the Bills scored 40 points by themselves. I also expect another solid game from Brissett and that will be enough to push this game over the total. Back the over.
