cleveland browns 23 vs buffalo bills 31
The Bills have now dropped two straight games, will they rebound at home against the Browns?
The Bills are coming off what may have been the craziest game of the season. Beginning with the “will he/won’t he” play narrative for Josh Allen all week, the Vikings pulled off one of the most unlikely victories of the season, thanks to a victory formation fumble on the Bills own 1 yard line, resulting in a Vikings Touchdown to give them a 3 points lead with less than a minute left. Allen drove the Bills down in under a minute for the game tying field goal, and then the Vikings ultimately won it in OT. The Bills have a ton of frustration to unleash on their next opponent, assuming this loss won’t carry a hangover with it.
After starting the season 2-1, the Browns have now lost 5 of their last 6 games. Apart from blowout losses to the Patriots and last week at the Dolphins, the Browns have been competitive in every game this season and most have come down to the wire. Whatever success they’ve had has largely been supported by the legs of Nick Chubb. Chubb has had at least 100 yards OR a touchdown in every game this season except for the Patriots blowout, he’s averaging 5.7 yards per carry, and he’s 3rd in the league in rushing yards behind only Saquon Barkley and Derrick Henry.
Everyone expects the Bills to score a ton of points every game, but because they’ve come slightly back down to earth and their defense gives up the fewest points in the league, the under has hit in 6 of the Bills’ last 7 games.
WHY BET ON THE cleveland browns
The Browns are 2-4 against the spread in their last 6 games and 1-4-1 against the spread in their last 6 games against the Bills. Their 25th ranked defense will have its hands full against the Bills 3rd ranked offense.
WHY BET ON THE buffalo bills
The Bills defense has been vulnerable against the run this season. Can Nick Chubb and the Browns take enough advantage of that? Or will Josh Allen just be too difficult to contain?
