Browns vs. Bills Pick
Given how inept the Browns continue to be offensively, will the under cash for bettors when Cleveland visits the Bills on Sunday?
According to oddsmakers from online sports book BetDSI, the Bills are 10-point home favorites over the Browns after opening as a 9.5-point favorite earlier this week. As for the total, the number hit the board at 43.5 and has been bet down to 41.5 at the majority of online and Vegas sports books.
The Browns fell to 0-13 on the year with another uninspiring performance last Sunday at home against the Bengals. They fell behind early and despite making it somewhat of a game in the third quarter, they lost 23-10 to their AFC North rival. The Browns have now failed to cover the spread in seven straight games and are 2-11 at the betting window this season.
The Bills couldn't stop Le'Veon Bell last Sunday as the Steelers won in Buffalo, 27-20. Rex Ryan is now firmly on the hot seat again as the Bills fell to 6-7 on the year and further behind the AFC wild card contenders. Buffalo has now lost back-to-back games and has failed to cover the point spread in three consecutive contests. The Bills are 5-8 ATS in 2016.
OUR PREDICTION: With how inept the Browns are offensively, coupled with what could be poor playing conditions again in Buffalo, the under should be a safe play on Sunday. The under is 4-1 in the last five meetings between these two teams and a perfect 5-0 in the Browns' last five games overall. The over is 6-0 in the Bills' last six home games but given how poorly Tyrod Taylor is playing and the fact that Buffalo's defense should show up against Cleveland's poor offense, I still like the under to cash.
