NFL Free Pick: MNF
The Monday Night Football Game this week features two AFC teams when the Cleveland Browns travel to Buffalo to take on the Bills.
Oddsmakers from online sports book Sportsbook.com have made the Bills a -5 point spread favorite. The over/under for this game has been set at 42 total points.
Both of these teams have struggled over the past couple weeks, but the Bills are still well in the hunt for a playoff spot in the AFC. They need a victory to keep pace with the Patriots and Jets in the AFC East and stop their three-game losing streak.
These two teams don’t meet a lot, but the Buffalo is 2-1 against the spread vs. Cleveland since 1992 and 1-0 against the spread against the Browns in Buffalo since 1992. Two of three games in this series have also gone over the total since 1992, including 1 of 1 going over in Buffalo since 1992.
The Bills really dominate the team stats in this matchup. They lead in points for (21.3 PPG to 19.1 PPG), points against (21.0 PPG to 21.6 PPG), passing yards per game (213.8 to 180.1), pass defense (205.3 YPG to 226.9 YPG) and run defense (103.9 YPG to 145.2 YPG).
Brady Quinn gave the Browns’ offense a lift last week, but the Bills play a much tougher defense than the Broncos and will certainly look to pressure the young quarterback into mistakes. As long as Trent Edwards can stop turning the ball over, Buffalo should come away with a much-needed win.
