How the NFL's Move of Browns vs Bills to Detroit Will Affect Odds

VSiN host of “The Lombardi Line,” former NFL General Manager, Michael Lombardi, discussed how the move from outdoors to indoors will favor the Bills, and what to look for as the numbers on the odds board react to the move.

The NFL announced Thursday that Sunday’s game between the Buffalo Bills and Cleveland Browns will be moved from the Bills home field in Orchard Park, NY, to Ford Field in Detroit due to an intense snow storm expected to hit the Buffalo area from Friday into Sunday.

Potentially Historic Buffalo Snowfall Could Create Travel Danger

Although NFL games are often played in foul weather, this storm is expected to create dangerous, if not impossible travel conditions.  Up to 4 foot of snow is expected in the area where snow could fall as rapidly as 3 inches per hour causing whiteout conditions.

Indoor Field Favors Faster Team

The move from Buffalo’s chilly, windy, outdoor Highmark Stadium to Detroit’s indoor, climate-controlled Ford Field will impact how the game will be played, which in turn impacts the odds. Lombardi mentioned that the faster team, which he believes is the Bills, will benefit from playing indoors compared to facing the Browns outdoors on Highmark Stadium's snowy surface.
