NFL Week 11 Browns vs Bills predictions, picks and odds: Who is the favorite?

The Bills have stumbled to two consecutive losses after widely being considered the most balanced team in the league. Don’t expect that to continue.

Following their Week 10 loss, you can bet that the Bills are looking to make an example of someone and we’ve got a feeling the Browns are about to be the unlucky recipient of a beating. With that said, let’s get into the odds and predictions.

Bills vs Browns: The Lay of the land

With a record of 6-3, Josh Allen and the Buffalo Bills are still in decent shape as we approach the business end of the season, but having lost their last two games, they will likely be in no mood to tolerate a third. On the other side, we’ve got the Browns who are 3-6 and have definitely struggled as they try to see out Deshaun Watson’s suspension. Then there is the weather. Record snow in New York over the last few days will likely play a major factor in this game. Indeed, due to the inclement weather, the clash has been shifted to Detroit where it will be played at Ford Field at 1:00 p.m. ET.

Frustrated Bills look to steady ship

Having suffered back-to-back losses to the Jets and Vikings respectively, The Bills - given their elite quarter back and stellar offense - are without doubt looking to take out their frustrations on the next caller. There were of course concerns about Josh Allen’s elbow and to be honest, he made some uncharacteristic errors in both of those losses, but by all accounts, Buffalo’s QB is fit as a fiddle and ready to go. Aside from that, the Bills have other injury issues too, with DE Greg Rousseau, LB Tremaine Edmunds and CB Tre’Davious White all ruled out of this game.

The Browns defense has been the issue

Though it wasn’t on the cards, the Browns managed to defeat the Bengals last week Monday, before going into their bye. Unfortunately, any energy that was conserved during the rest was quickly extinguished in their clash with the Dolphins on Sunday gone, when they fell to the Dolphins in Miami. After going up 7-0, the Browns collapsed and, in the end, lost 39-17. Yet, it’s got to be said that even though they are without QB Deshaun Watson, who has two more games of his suspension to serve, backup QB Jacoby Brissett is not the problem. In truth, Cleveland’s offense has been relatively stable, while their defense has been the absolute opposite. If they’re to get anything from Sunday night’s game, it will be of critical importance that the defense gets it right.

Bills vs Browns: The Prediction

With the weather having forced this game to be relocated, the home crowd advantage won’t be as big a factor. We’ve also got to consider that both teams are in need of a win right here and now, so regardless of whose fans turn out in greater numbers, this one is going to get intense. On either side we’ve got two teams who run the ball very well and ironically both have been susceptible on defense to the run game. With that in mind, we’re going to bank on a Bills win here. Despite their recent fumbles, expect Josh Allen and Co. to make the score climb.
