NFL Who’s Hot and Who’s Not - Week 11
Heading into Week 11 of the NFL regular season, New England remains the frontrunner in the AFC at a perfect 9-0 straight-up, while the 9-0 Carolina Panthers have a two-game lead for the top spot in the NFC. The Patriots struggled to get past the New York Giants this past Sunday to fall to 5-2-2 against the spread and the Panthers covered at home against Tennessee to move to 7-2 ATS on the year.
The hottest team in the league with BetAnySports was the Cincinnati Bengals, but Monday night’s stunning 10-6 loss to Houston as heavy 12-point home favorites ended that amazing run. The 8-1 Bengals are still a profitable 7-1-1 against the spread through their first nine games and they hold a 2.5-game lead over 6-4 Pittsburgh in the AFC North.
The top team now for NFL bettors is the surprising Minnesota Vikings. Coming off last week’s bye they are 6-2 SU with an 8-1 record ATS. They will be back in action at home this Sunday in a crucial division showdown against the reeling 6-3 Green Bay Packers, who have now dropped their last three games both SU and ATS. BetAnySports has listed this game as a PICK and the NFL betting odds for the total have been set at 44.5.
The Vikings have also been a solid bet on the total line with six of their nine games staying UNDER with two more ending as a PUSH, but the top team in the league when it comes to betting the UNDER is the Steelers. Following Sunday’s 30-9 romp against Cleveland with a closing line of 43.5, eight of their first 10 games have stayed UNDER the total. Conversely, it was just the third time in 10 games that the total did not go OVER for the Browns.
The top team for betting the OVER has been the 7-2 Arizona Cardinals. They are coming off a huge 39-32 upset against Seattle as three-point road underdogs to move to 6-3 ATS. The total went OVER BetAnySports’ closing 43.5-point line and it has now gone OVER in seven of Arizona’s first nine games.
A few teams to go against in Week 11 could be Baltimore and Atlanta at home. The 2-7 Ravens are a costly 1-7-1 ATS this season and after a perfect 4-0 start both SU and ATS, the 6-3 Falcons have failed to cover in their last five games.
The Philadelphia Eagles have no doubt been the surprise of the year in the NFL. Going into this season nobody gave them a chance to make the Super Bowl. Most of the big names in NFL “pick em land” predicted the Giants and Cowboys; look how that ended up. The Seahawks are out, the Rams Read More…
The Patriots just need to show up for this one and it’s a win. With no Carson Wentz, this is over before it begins. Look, all the folks out there the ones that think they know it all, they will tell you for sure that the Eagles will cover the spread. They will lay it Read More…
