5 favorites to bet in NFL Week 11

NFL Week 11 is upon us, as we take a look at 5 teams favored to win this week.

5. Denver Broncos at Los Angeles Chargers (-7)

This was a tough week to find favorites I liked. Normally, this would be a stay-away for me, considering the Chargers are hard to trust considering their history of playing up and down to competition. Additionally, the Broncos are coming off their bye week and although they are 3-6, half of those losses were in close games against the Los Angeles Rams and Kansas City Chiefs. However, the Broncos are likely facing a lost season with a wayward head coach, and Los Angeles knows it must win to keep pace with Kansas City in the AFC West.

4. Dallas Cowboys at Atlanta Falcons (-3)

Again, another favorite that would normally be a stay-away. The Falcons are coming off a humiliating defeat at the hands fo the Cleveland Browns, but that’s actually why I like them in this spot. The pressure to win is through the proverbial roof, and Atlanta is a much better home team, especially on the offensive side of the ball. Dallas won against Philadelphia on Sunday night at Lincoln Financial Field, giving the illusion that the Cowboys are about to make a run. Don’t buy into that narrative.

3. Oakland Raiders at Arizona Cardinals (-5.5)

Yes, the Cardinals are laying 5.5 points to somebody that isn’t in high school. Even more incredibly, I’m swallowing those points. The main reasoning centers around one team playing hard, and the other one completely laying down. Turn on tape of the Raiders, and you see a team that gave up a month ago. The Cardinals damn near pulled an upset at Arrowhead Stadium on Sunday against the Chiefs, and while they aren’t good, they have some players. Who do the Raiders have? This, believe it or not, is a mismatch.

2. Tennessee Titans at Indianapolis Colts (-1.5)

The Colts are rolling as winners of three straight, getting them to 4-5 and back on the brink of the AFC playoff picture. Meanwhile, the Titans have won two straight including an impressive 34-10 victory over the New England Patriots last weekend. For this game, the premise comes down to one team being defensive-minded, while the other puts its hopes on the quarterback. In 2018, the team with the better quarterback, especially when playing at home, has a distinct advantage if the rosters are even remotely comparable.

1. Carolina Panthers (-4.5) at Detroit Lions

This is the lock of the week. The Lions are 3-6 and going absolutely nowhere, playing for a coach who has a pencil over his ear despite his play sheet being laminated. The Panthers are coming off an absolute shelling at the hands of the Pittsburgh Steelers, but that game was on last Thursday. In other words, the Panthers have had 10 days to stew and plot their revenge against a team that is already checked out. Swallow the points and don’t look back.
