Week 11 in the NFL gets underway on Thursday night with the Patriots taking on the Falcons. The action continues with a big slate on Sunday and as always, we have you covered with betting picks for EVERY game below.
NFL Week 11 Betting Picks
New England Patriots at Atlanta Falcons
Thursday Novemer 18th, 8.20pm (ET)
The Patriots seem to have found their mojo over the last few weeks, particularly on offense. We always knew they were going to be a strong defensive team this season, but they have put up an average of 37.5 points per game over the last four weeks, allowing just 12.5 points per game in those same four weeks. Naturally, they are 4-0 in those games and now sit just 0.5 games behing the AFC East leading Buffalo Bills.
After starting the season with a 1-3 record, the Falcons have stayed alive in the NFC Playoffs race, currently maintaining a 4-5 record. Theyve been given a lifeline over the past few weeks with Tampa Bay losing multiple games to keep the NFC South race wide open.
Hard to bet against the Patriots here. They have been arguably the best team in the NFL over the last four weeks, boasting impressive wins over the likes of the Chargers and Browns. We are getting a few extra points due to them being on the road, but I don’t thinnk that phases them too much. In fact, they are 4-0 on the road this year and just 2-4 at home.
Pittsburgh Steelers at LA Chargers
Sunday Novemer 21st, 8.20pm (ET)
The Steelers are in the midst of an extremely tight battle in the AFC North, where all four teams are seperated by just one win. Although they didn’t lose, they were the first team to fail to beat Detroit this season in Week 10 as the two teams played out a tie after the game went to overtime. It’s a disappointing loss for the Steelers, who had the chance to level the Ravens on wins after Baltimore lost to the Dolphins on Thursday night.
The Chargers started the season in hot form, winning four of their first five games, but since then they have been pretty ordinary, going 1-3 in their last four including a loss in Week 10 to the Vikings. They too are in the midst of a tight divisional battle, with the AFC West also separated by just one win.
The Chargers start as 5.5 point favourites on the road and it’s hard to like the Steelers after their performance against the winless Lions. Ben Roethlisberger remains on the sidelines for the foreseeable future, and Mason Rudolph didn’t look particularly settled in the line-up in Week 10. The Steelers have struggled to score at the best of times, but have a solid defense, so I think this one goes under.
New York Giants at Tampa Bay Buccaneers
Monday Novemer 22nd, 8.15pm (ET)
It’s been a rough couple of weeks for the Bucs, who went from having a stranglehold on the NFC North to being right in the mix of a battle, having lost their last two games to the Saints and Washington. Luckily, they find themselves with a really winnable stretch of games against the Giants, Colts and Falcons over the next three weeks.
The Giants will be coming off their bye week, which probably came at inconvenient time as they had just recorded a fantastic win over the Raiders to move to 3-6 on the season. They are one of jhust a few teams in the NFC that is out of the playoff picture, so should throw balls to the wall for the rest of the season.
Really like the Bucs to bounce back in a big way here. They haven’t been themselves over the last few weeks and now have new found motivation. They are just one game up on the Saints and Panthers in the division, and certainly won’t want to relinquish that lead. Back them to cover the 11.5 point spread at home.
Baltimore Ravens at Chicago Bears
Sunday November 21st, 1.00pm (ET)
