NFL Betting: Week 11
The following article contains information that is not representative of the opinions of CommRadio. It solely expresses the opinions of Max Savitt.
The NFL has passed the midpoint of the season and it is now time to start seeing which teams can pull ahead into the playoffs. For Week 11, there are a few key games where the real teams will show themselves, and the fake teams will also show themselves.
Here are five picks that will look to go 5-0.
Giants vs Buccaneers
The Giants are going into Tampa Bay to face Tom Brady and the Buccaneers on Monday Night Football. The current line of the game has the Giants +11 points. This game will not be a blowout in any way. The Giants have proved themselves as competitors thus far this season.
In football anything can happen. There are upsets every week and this is looking to be one. Daniel Jones and the Giants have the chance to make a statement against the Buccaneers. Although the Giants moneyline is a great pick, being safe and taking the Giants +11 is a great pick.
The pick: Giants +11
Cardinals vs Seahawks
The Cardinals are going to Seattle to take on the Seahawks in Week 11. The current line of the game has the Cardinals -1.5, but there is something weird about this line.
The Cardinals, who are 8-2, are playing the Seahawks, who are 3-6. The Seahawks just got shut out versus the Packers in Week 10 so it’s hard to see them bouncing back this season even with Russell Wilson at quarterback.
If Kyler Murray plays in this game, then the Cardinals should be a lock. Even if Murray is out, the Cardinals winning this game is still a possibility.
The pick: Cardinals -1.5
Cowboys vs Chiefs
The Cowboys are going into Kansas City to play the Chiefs in what looks to be an amazing game. The current line of the game has the Chiefs - 2.5.
This is a game that can turn some heads. The Cowboys are the real deal and have the potential to make a serious playoff run this season. On the other hand, many have been disappointed with how the Chiefs have been playing all season.
The Chiefs have turned things around, but they have not beaten great teams over the past three games. Therefore, they have too much on their plates with the Cowboys this week. For those reasons, the Cowboys moneyline is a smart pick.
The Pick: Cowboys Moneyline
Lions vs Browns
The Lions will take on the Browns in Cleveland for Week 11. The over/under of the game is 42.5 points.
This is extremely low for an NFL game but the under is still a real possibility. The Lions will get down big and will struggle to move the ball on offense against the Browns frontline defense.
The Browns will score easily, but with no Odell Beckham Jr. they are not as scary of an offense as they were a few weeks ago. Therefore, this looks to be a run-heavy game with more field goals than touchdowns and the under can hit.
The pick: Under 42.5
Steelers vs Chargers
The Steelers will be taking on the Chargers in Week 11. The current line of the game has the Chargers -5.5. The Chargers are better than the Steelers in nearly every aspect of the game.
The Steelers play clean football, though, so they can keep themselves in games and punish bad teams.
The Chargers are not a bad team by any means, and the Chargers should win this game. The Steelers struggle to win games against good opponents and the Chargers will give them problems.
Although the Chargers may cover 5.5 points, the safe pick is to just take them on the moneyline.
The pick: Chargers Moneyline
