We have officially passed the season’s midway point, and the race to make the playoffs is on.
Week 11 has several high-leverage video games all weekend long that will assist us in getting a better photo of what the playoffs might look like in 2021.
To get us prepared for the week ahead, here are our best choices and picks for Week 11 of the NFL season. Would you please keep in mind that all NFL gameday chances are current at 1:45 p.m ET on Thursday, November 18?
Aaron Rodgers wasn’t at his finest in Week 10, as his Packers only scored 17 points. That wasn’t entirely unexpected, as Rodgers was cleared from COVID-19 on Saturday.
Despite not participating in a single practice all week, Green Bay earned a double-digit win in a vast NFC contest.
The Packers will now take-on the Vikings in Minnesota in Week-11, but they are far much better. With the ‘No. 1’ seed in the NFC in reach, I do not anticipate Green Bay to slip up here.
Shockingly, the Packers are less than 3-point favorites in this game.
Yes, they are on the road. However, the Vikings are simply close to being as good as the Packers are this season. Green Bay is also a remarkable 9-0 ATS in their last nine games and should have no-problem winning by at least a field goal on Sunday.
As good as the ‘Packers’ have been this ‘season’, their offense has not lit up the scoreboard. They are balancing under 22 points per video game, which is ranking No. 19 in the NFL.
On the other hand, Minnesota’s offense has been more respected, balancing 24.6 points per video game. This typical figure is a low-scoring NFC North matchup in which both groups attempt to establish the run.
Take the Under here and try to find this to be a 23-20 type of game in Minnesota.
Russell Wilson went back to the field for the Seahawks in Week 10. However, it’ll take a while before he begins to appear like himself again.
Wilson threw two-interceptions in the loss, both of which were picked off in the end zone. The ‘offense’ did not score a point versus the Packers and amounted to simply 208 yards.
Heading into Week 11, the Seahawks must ‘win’ this game to prevent going to 3-7 and running out the NFC playoff hunt. With the ‘unknown’ status of Kyler Murray and DeAndre Hopkins, the Seahawks are a great bet to win this game at home.
Expect Wilson to look much crisper in Week 11 and for the Seahawks offense to look better.
It’s hard to take too-much out of what we saw on Sunday from Wilson and the Seahawks. The offense looked clunky, and Wilson missed out on numerous tosses.
With another entire week of practice, it’s reasonable to expect Wilson to return on track and for Seattle to expose the ‘underwhelming’ secondary of the Cardinals. They must win outright. However, the 2-point cushion makes this a simple choice for our NFL bet of the day.
If there is one factor to be encouraged about the Seahawks this year, it’s their defense. They have permitted simply 20.7 points per video game and have quit a total of 37 points over the last three weeks.
If Murray does play, that changes things in this video game. If it is Colt McCoy under-center again, consider this total a lock to go Under.
