NFL Week 11 lines: Reason to bet on each underdog
NFL Week 11 should be a great one, and the underdogs look like good bets in many fo the affairs.
Arizona Cardinals at Seattle Seahawks (-3)
The Cardinals are the better team right now. They have a dynamic offense led by Kyler Murray and DeAndre Hopkins, and Seattle’s defense is a tire fire.
Atlanta Falcons at New Orleans Saints (-5)
Jameis Winston isn’t Drew Brees. Atlanta beat the Saints in New Orleans last year, and with Winston capable of throwing interceptions galore, there’s reason to think it happens again.
Cincinnati Bengals at Washington Football Team (-1.5)
Outside of Pittsburgh and Baltimore, the Bengals have been in every game. Frankly, they’re better than the Football Team due to their limited offense.
Detroit Lions at Carolina Panthers (-3)
The Lions are getting Carolina with a banged-up Teddy Bridgewater and no Christian McCaffrey. Detroit is 4-5 and in the race, while the Panthers have lost five straight.

New England Patriots (-2) at Houston Texans
The Patriots have no ability to score, and the defense is one of the league’s worst in the front seven. Deshaun Watson will have ample time to throw.
Philadelphia Eagles at Cleveland Browns (-3.5)
Carson Wentz and Co. need this desperately, and even if they don’t win outright, the Browns have struggle to cover all year. This should be within a field goal.
Pittsburgh Steelers (-10) at Jacksonville Jaguars
Pittsburgh has a long-standing history of playing down to competition, especially on the road. The Steelers almost certainly win, but the Jaguars covering? Not absurd.
Tennessee Titans at Baltimore Ravens (-6.5)
The Titans and Ravens are both 6-3 but reeling. Each has a gaping hole at left tackle and the quarterbacks aren’t playing the way they did last year. This screams tight game.
Miami Dolphins (-3.5) at Denver Broncos
Tua Tagovailoa has played decently, but 165 passing yards per game isn’t lighting it up. If the Broncos can play sound special teams and avoid turnovers, this will be close.
New York Jets at Los Angeles Chargers (-8.5)
The Jets are off their bye week, and nobody is a bigger choking dog than the Chargers. That’s the case.
Dallas Cowboys at Minnesota Vikings (-9.5)
The Cowboys get Andy Dalton back, and while Dallas is a deserved underdog, getting 9.5 points against a sub-.500 team is great value.
Green Bay Packers at Indianapolis Colts (-2.5)
This is about Aaron Rodgers making plays against a talented Colts defense. Indianapolis is good, but this would be its best win of the year. Give me Rodgers.
Kansas City Chiefs (-6.5) at Las Vegas Raiders
The Raiders are at home, lead the league in third-down rate and can run the rock. Kansas City should win the rematch, but perhaps Las Vegas has the winning formula as it did in Week 5.
Los Angeles Rams at Tampa Bay Buccaneers (-3.5)
The Rams have the better defense, which ranks top-five in myriad categories. If they get pressure on Tom Brady consistently, they’ll win.
