Buffalo at Cleveland

Friday 08/17 07:30 PM Eastern

2 units on Buffalo +3.5 (-115) (risk 2 to return 3.74)  RESULT: win

2 units on Game Total UNDER 40.5 -105 (risk 2 to return 3.9)  RESULT: win

Cleveland followers already are going bonkers over Baker Mayfield, but it's only one preseason game against mostly backups on the opposing team.  Mayfield was 11-of-20 for 212 yards and two touchdowns and projected starter Tyrod Taylor completed all five of his passes for 99 yards and a TD against the Giants. The game still went UNDER by five points as New York didn't show much on offense. Buffalo lost 28-23 to Carolina as the Panthers defense was uncharacteristically soft. Nathan Peterman, rookie Josh Allen and AJ McCarron combined for 25-of-39 for 351 yards. Bills' coach Sean McDermott went UNDER three of four preseason games in 2017 and Cleveland coach Hue Jackson went UNDER all four games last year and he's now 10-2-1 UNDER in his preseason career. The posted total is slightly inflated due to Buffalo's performance last week and Mayfield's good showing. However, Buffalo will keep this one close and Mayfield still has a lot to prove. Grab the points with the Bills plus play the UNDER.
