NFL Week 11 Betting Tips

Arizona Cardinals at Seattle Seahawks 

Friday, 12.20pm (AEDT)

The Cardinals produced one of the great finishes of the NFL season so far last week as they defeated the Buffalo Bills on a hail mary pass from quarterback Kyler Murray. The win marked their second straight victory, and helped them take the lead in the hotly contested NFC West division. They currently sit ahead of both the Seahawks and the Rams on tiebreakers alone, so a win here would be absolutely massive for either team. 

Offense has been the name of the game for both of these sides this year, and they have both struggled to stop anyone defensively. The Cardinals allow more yards from scrimmage than any other team while the Seahawks allow the most passing yards per game by a country mile. Combined, the Sehawks and Cardinals allow 53 points per game while they score a whopping 61.8 points per game between them.

Love the look of the over here. This should be an absolute score fest between two of the best offenses in the league against two of the worst defenses in the league. Back points, points and more points here. 

New England Patriots at Houston Texans

Monday, 5.00am (AEDT)

This was shaping up to be a bit of a boring affair, but the Patriots found some form last week, racking up back to back wins in the span of six days against the Jets and Ravens. They are back in the hunt for the AFC East title, and will no doubt be hunting a third straight win against what has been a lacklustre Houston Texans team to date. 

The Texans are just 2-7 on the season so far and 2-7 against the spread. Both of their two wins this season have come against the Jacksonville Jaguars. They have a pretty tough road ahead, with games agains the Patriots, Colts, Lions and Bears to come over the next four weeks.

The Patriots should continue to roll here if they come to the game with form resembling what they brought against Baltimore in Week 10. Their defence looked really solid as they kept Lamar Jackson and the Ravens to just 17 points. Back the Patriots to cover a small spread on the road. 

Los Angeles Rams at Tampa Bay Buccaneers 

Tuesday, 12.15pm (AEDT)

The game of the round sees the Buccaneers hosting the Rams on Monday Night Football (Tuesday afternoon Australian time). The Buccaneers were taught a football lesson by the Saints in Week 9, going down by 35 points at home. They bounced back in Week 10, however, defeating the Panthers by 23 points on the road. They have another really tough test on Monday night as they face the Rams, who have looked like one of the best sides in the competition over the past few weeks. 

The Rams became the first team in the league to hold the Seahawks to under 27 points in Week 10 as they claimed a fantastic 23-16 win over Seattle at home. They sit at 6-3 on the season and are deadlocked with both the Cardinals and Rams in the NFC West, but with those two teams playing eachother this week, the Rams have a great chance to jump to the top of the division here. 

Tough game to call here. The Buccs start as slight four point favourites at home but we are actually giving the slight edge to the Rams. LA's defence has looked fantasitc of late and we saw that the Buccs offence can have a tendancy to go missing, as they did against the Saints in Week 9. Back the Rams to cover the spread here.
