NFL Week 11 picks and predictions

  • Updated

NFL Carolina Panthers Cincinnati Bengals

Cincinnati quarterback Joe Burrow (9), wide receiver Trenton Irwin (16) and tight end Hayden Hurst (88) will lead the Bengals into Pittsburgh on Sunday.

Minnesota is the top team in the NFC entering Week 11, having won seven in a row by 8 points or less. In our game of the week, Kirk Cousins and the Vikings host the Dallas Cowboys. Watch now for all our picks and predictions.

One week into the second half of the NFL season, things are trending upward for yours truly.

Picking mostly chalk last week was the right call, as I went 9-5 against the spread to improve my season winning percentage ATS to over .500. That's right, after 10 weeks, I'm at 51% against the spot, 75-71-4. And still at 61% in straight money line bets.

This week, there's a lot to consider.

The major news is that the Cleveland Browns vs. Buffalo Bills game is being moved to Detroit due to the weather forecast that is calling for more than 2 feet in Buffalo this weekend. 

In our Week 11 best bets we originally said to take the under in that one. That's when we thought the game was being played in a blizzard. This changes things, as the Over/Under is 48.5. We're hammering the over as well as the Bills to cover the 8.5.

Then there are the road warriors.

Out of 13 games on Sunday and Monday's slate, six teams are road favorites. I'm riding with five of them straight up, and four of them to cover the spread: Philadelphia (-7.5) over Indianapolis; Washington (-3) over Houston; Cincinnati (-5) over Pittsburgh; and Kansas City (-6.5) over the Los Angeles Chargers.

My four picks are a combined 56% (20-16-1) against the spread and 58% (15-11) as favorites ATS. As road favorites, they are a combined 6-6.

In this weird weekend right before Thanksgiving, here at FrontPageBets we're looking forward to all the stuffing.

On to the picks!
