NFL Week 11 brings us two great prime-time matchups and an interesting game on Sunday night. It’s another week where there are several big favorites after last week saw the Cowboys favored by more than 17 points against the Giants. They easily covered and now are favored by more than 10 points on the road at Carolina. Five games have double-digit spreads as of Monday afternoon.
The Baltimore Ravens and Cincinnati Bengals start the week on Thursday night. Both teams had stunning defeats in Week 10 and the Bengals currently sit in last place in the AFC North with a 5-4 record. The Bengals had plenty of injury issues heading into Sunday’s game and that’ll continue to be the theme this week heading into Thursday. It seems unlikely Tee Higgins will play after suffering a hamstring injury in practice last week. The defensive line is also banged up with Sam Hubbard missing Sunday’s game and Trey Hendrickson suffering a hyperextended knee in the final minutes of Sunday’s loss.
Week 11 also brings a rematch of last year’s Super Bowl between the Chiefs and Eagles. It’s on “Monday Night Football” in Kansas City, and both teams are coming off their bye weeks, so both teams should be relatively healthy. The coaching staff for both teams have had this game highlighted on their calendars since the schedule was released earlier this year.
It’ll be Jalen Hurts versus Patrick Mahomes. Hurts appears to favor a knee issue, and he hasn’t been running much in the last few weeks. It’ll also feature a brotherly battle of Travis Kelce vs. Jason Kelce.
- Favorites are now 96-48 straight up with 5 pick’ems, favorites are now 75-61-8 against the spread (55.1%)
- Unders are now 87-61-1 (58.8%) and primetime unders continue to hit at 24-7 (77.4%)
