Why bet on Buffalo versus Cleveland?
So the Bills should come out guns blazing. If Josh Allen is okay, and signs suggest he is, then Buffalo has a chance to score at will versus a Browns side that allows over 26 points per game.
For the first time in 3 weeks, Buffalo’s D faces a quarterback they should have no trouble containing. Jacoby Brissett is a great backup, but he won’t punish the Bills’ secondary the way Zach Wilson and Kirk Cousins did.

Cleveland Browns at Buffalo Bills Final Betting Prediction
Losing to the Jets made sense, but the Bills shouldn’t have relinquished a 14-point halftime lead against the Vikings. The fact Minnesota rallied to tie the game and then beat Buffalo in overtime is a sign the Bills have some work to do to win the Super Bowl.
With that being written, we shouldn’t read too much into Buffalo’s losing streak. The Jets are for real and Josh Allen played hurt in the game against the Vikings.
The Bills have listed Allen as questionable to start this week. Ah, but even if Allen isn’t one-hundred percent, he should play well enough to lead the Bills to a win and cover.
Cleveland allows over 131 rushing yards per game. So all Buffalo must do is lean on running back Devin Singletary and call Allen’s number in the rushing attack. The Bills win and cover.
