Prediction:

Looking at the trends, the Bills have a slight advantage over Cleveland while playing in Buffalo. The Bills are 1-0 against the spread while playing the Browns in Buffalo since 1992, and 2-1 ATS vs. Cleveland all-time since 1992. Buffalo is also 8-1 when playing against a team with a losing record over the last two seasons and 6-0 ATS when playing a team with a losing record in the second half of the last three seasons. The best bet in this game, however, might be the under with assumption of bad weather tonight in Buffalo. The weather reports show that it’s expected to snow tonight, which could mean a bad playing surface. We predict the Bills over the Browns in a tight game, 17-16.
