Betting on the Cleveland Browns
With Deshaun Watson’s possible return to action a week away, the Browns have their postseason aspirations pretty complicated by having to face the Bills and Buccaneers in back-to-back weeks.
Cleveland’s defense, which is certainly not one of the best in the league, was easily outplayed by the Dolphins’ powerful offense. The Browns’ 39 receiving points are the most they have allowed to any opponent this season as well as 491 total yards.
With these results, not only are they tied for sixth in most yards allowed per play with 5.8 average, but they are seventh in most average net yards per pass with 6.7 and fifth in average yards per carry with a high 4.8.
On the offensive side, they also failed to score their second-lowest number of points and for the first time failed to surpass 300 total yards. Overall, the Browns’ offensive has worked well, notably their ground game, which now ranks second in rushing touchdowns (16) and sixth in average yards per run (4.9). They also rank 11th in yards per play with an average of 5.6.
Betting on the Buffalo Bills
The Bills surrendered the AFC East lead with their loss to the Vikings and need to get back to winning ways if they don’t want their postseason aspirations to become more tangled than expected.
Buffalo conceded 13 points to Minnesota in the final period to blow a 10-point lead. No team had been able to score more than 20 points against the Bills this season, so that was by far the most points they had given up. Moreover, it was also the first time this year they have allowed more than 400 total yards and are now tied for eighth-fewest yards allowed per play with an average of 5.2.
On the offensive side, things didn’t work out either. Josh Allen, who was confirmed as part of the starting team shortly before kickoff (he had been suffering from elbow pain) threw for 330 yards and a touchdown but also two interceptions for the third game in a row. In total, the Bills lost the ball four times, but remain one of the best offenses by leading the league in yards per play with an average of 6.5.
Buffalo’s defense won’t have as difficult a time stopping the Browns’ offense as they did the Vikings’, but the Bills’ offense will still have plenty of opportunities to score against one of the worst defenses in the league.
Buffalo is fourth in points scored with 250, while Cleveland is the ninth team with the most points allowed with 238. The Under has occurred in five of the last seven meetings between the two, but with such a low point line on Sunday, we’re sure this will be an entertaining matchup.
Prediction: Over (CLE 20 – BUF 31).
