NFL Best Bets Week 11
We turn the National Football League page to Week 11. The week gets started with a fantastic Thursday Night Football game, and ends with a terrific Monday Night Football affair. We have some picks that we love for Week 11. Let’s take a look at our Week 11 National Football League Betting Predictions.
Houston Texans -4 over Arizona Cardinals
The hottest team in the National Football League could be the Houston Texans. The Texans are now in a postseason spot, and have three straight games at home. CJ Stroud has been outstanding behind center for Houston. He is likely going to be the runaway winner of the offensive Rookie of the Year. They take on a different-looking Arizona team on Sunday, but it’s still an under talented Arizona team. Look for the Texans to grab a home win, and put pressure on Jacksonville in the race for the AFC South. Houston wins by a touchdown or more in this one!
Miami Dolphins -12 over Las Vegas Raiders
The Dolphins have shown the ability to blow away teams with lesser talent. That is definitely a knock on them, as they have struggled against good teams. We would not consider the Raiders one of the good teams. Sure, the Raiders have been solid as of late, in fact with back to back wins. But, this is a game the Dolphins want to win, and push some distance between them and whoever will make a run at them in the AFC East. Look for a big game from the Dolphins offense, and they beat the Raiders easily. Take Miami at home here.
Detroit Lions -10 over Chicago Bears
Dan Campbell and his Detroit Lions passed the test in Week 10 going on the road and beating the Los Angeles Chargers. Now, the Lions will want to make sure they do not look beyond a divisional rival in Chicago. Sure, the Lions play on Thanksgiving Day, but this is a game they have to win first. The Bears may get Justin Fields back in this game, but Tyson Bagent has not been awful in his starts. Look for more rushing attack from the two headed monster of Gibbs and Montgomery in this one. When they are not running, Jared Goff gets the job done via the air. This is Detroit by double digits over the Bears in Week 11.
Carolina Panthers +11 over Dallas Cowboys
This is a classic look-ahead game for the Dallas Cowboys. The Panthers are not as bad as having just one win. The Cowboys have a big Thanksgiving Day, and they are going to play on cruise control here. On the other side, the Panthers are going to give a good effort. Do not be surprised if the Panthers have a chance to win this game late. In the end, Dallas may still get the job done, but betting the Panthers here is the best choice to make.
San Francisco 49ers -11 over Tampa Bay Buccaneers
Christian McCaffrey did not score in the win over the Jacksonville Jaguars, and that was the biggest story coming out of the game. The fact is - the 49ers needed the bye week, they got it, and they are back to being scary. Baker Mayfield is going to be running for his life here, and the Buccaneers do not have enough to keep up. This looks to be a blowout in the making. Look for the 49ers to pour it on in this game. In fact, the 49ers know they need to win to keep pace with Seattle, who is tied with them. Take the big favorites.
Others to Consider:
Washington Commanders -9.5 over New York Giants - The Giants are not even going to try to win games. Caleb Williams to New York?
Seattle Seahawks -1 over Los Angeles Rams - Seattle needs revenge on the Rams from the season opening loss.
Minnesota Vikings +2.5 over Denver Broncos - Minnesota is underdog? Don’t like it. Sure, the Broncos are hot, including the win on Monday Night over the Bills, but still not buying Denver.
There you have it. Those are our favorite plays for the week. Remember that next week is Thanksgiving week. There are a trio of games Thursday, a game on Friday, and a few less on Sunday. Good luck with all your NFL Betting!
