Week 3 NFL Picks And Predictions: Most Experts Pick Bills Over Browns

Coming off two close losses to begin the season, the Cleveland Browns are picked by only a few experts to beat the Buffalo Bills in their third game of the season. The Bills beat the Kansas City Chiefs, 35-17, last week, but they got crushed on the road against the New York Jets in Week 1.

Of the nine experts putting in picks for CBS Sports, only the game projection system sees the Browns getting their first victory of the year. The system simulates the game 50,000 times, and apparently it sees Cleveland faring better in those simulations.

At ESPN, experts are a bit more optimistic about the Browns, as Merril Hoge, Adam Schefter and Seth Wickersham pick in their favor. Only Mike Golic and the Accuscore projection system see the Bills winning among experts to offer their predictions already.

Yahoo! Sports sides with the Bills, though, as expert Jason Cole and the collective Yahoo! users both predict a Buffalo victory.
