While the Thanksgiving Day smorgasbord of games are on tap next week, the NFL Week 11 slate of contests offers a feast of opportunities for bettors to earn significant profit. Three matchups – including Monday night’s bookending Super Bowl rematch – showcase multiple teams that are playoff-bound in games against each other.
Week 11 kicks off with an AFC North rivalry contest between the Cincinnati Bengals (5-4) and the Baltimore Ravens (7-3). The Bengals shockingly fell at home to the suddenly-hot Texans 30-27, a game where Houston amassed over 544 total offensive yards.
The Ravens lost ground on their division lead and blew a two-touchdown advantage in the fourth quarter to Cleveland. With both team’s defenses struggling last week, this contest features an over/under total starting at 46 points.
An AFC South rivalry renews Sunday when the Tennessee Titans (3-6) travel to Jacksonville for a matchup against the Jaguars (6-3). Tennessee struggled offensively Sunday, unable to move the football either through the air or on the ground against Tampa Bay.
The Jaguars similarly regressed Sunday, falling 34-3 to the 49ers with a punitive offensive display. With both teams struggling to move the football, this contest’s over/under total is set at 40 points.
The Los Angeles Chargers (4-5) continue their up-and-down season in Week 11 against the Green Bay Packers (3-6). Los Angeles has dropped four of their five games this season by a combined 11 points, including a wrenching 41-38 matchup Sunday on game-ending Detroit field goal try.
The Packers also have lost four games this year by a combined 11 points, including a back-breaking 23-19 defeat in Pittsburgh in Week 10. Expect this game to be a close contest, one oddsmakers have set at 44 points for the over/under wager.
The New York Giants (2-8) are one of four teams with eight losses through Week 10, showing little signs of life with QB Daniel Jones finished for the year.
Conversely, the Washington Commanders (4-6) fought throughout their game Sunday, losing on a last-second field goal to homesteading Seattle. This Week 11 matchup has the lowest over/under total, starting at 36.5 points.
After Las Vegas fired their head coach, the Raiders (5-5) revived their season by winning two straight contests. Miami enters the game fresh from a bye week for the Dolphins (6-3).
Both teams need this win to maintain their playoff hopes and continue pace with their divisional rivals. With Miami’s historic offense, this Week 11 matchup offers bettors a 46.5-point over/under point total wager.
In October, fans would have assumed the Week 11 matchup between the Arizona Cardinals (2-8) and the Houston Texans (5-4) would have been for draft positioning. The Cardinals finally saw QB Kyler Murray return last week, helping the NFL’s worst franchise through the first nine weeks secure their second win.
The Texans have won four of their past six games, surprisingly defeating the Bengals 30-27 on Sunday. This contest features an over/under total as high as 48 points, the largest for any Week 11 game.
Two NFC North rivals heading in opposite directions collide Sunday when the Chicago Bears (3-7) travel north to play the Detroit Lions (7-2).
Both teams enter this game coming off wins, however, as the Bears beat Carolina on Thursday night and the Lions outlasted the Chargers in a thrilling Week 10 battle. This contest’s over/under total starts at 46.5 points.
Another AFC North divisional showdown is set for Sunday when the Pittsburgh Steelers (6-3) travel to Cleveland to play the Browns (6-3). Both teams enter their contest on a two-game winning streak after Pittsburgh stopped Green Bay 23-19 Sunday while the Browns eked past the Ravens 33-31.
In a matchup of two strong defenses, the over/under total for this game starts at 33.5 points, the smallest total figure for any game in Week 11.
The Dallas Cowboys (6-3) need a win Sunday to maintain pace with the NFC East leading Philadelphia Eagles. Carolina, meanwhile, needs a win to help the Panthers (1-8) feel they’re headed in the right direction for the 2024 season.
The over/under total for this contest starts at 42 points.
After starting the season 3-1, a four-game losing streak derailed Tampa Bay’s playoff hopes. For the Buccaneers (4-5) to regain their momentum, Tampa Bay needs to stop the NFC’s second-ranked offense in San Francisco in Week 11.
The 49ers (6-3) retook the division lead and ended their own three-game losing streak with a 34-3 pounding of Jacksonville last week. This contest’s over/under total starts at 41 points.
The NFC West’s pecking order could be determined in a game featuring the Seattle Seahawks (6-3) and the Los Angeles Rams (3-6).
While the Rams have lost three straight games, the Seahawks are entering this contest fresh off a 29-26 victory over Washington at home. This contest’s over/under starts at 46 points.
An AFC North matchup for second-place in the division unfolds when the New York Jets (4-5) travel upstate to face the Buffalo Bills (5-5). Both teams have lost two straight entering this contest.
The Bills inexplicably fell to Denver Monday night 24-22 by having too many players on a failed field goal try; the Jets, not to be outdone, fell 16-12 to the Las Vegas Raiders and had multiple chances to close the game with a victory. This contest’s over/under total is set at 39 points.
Two teams that were left for dead to begin this season take the field in the Sunday primetime game when the Minnesota Vikings (6-4) battle the Denver Broncos (4-5). The Vikings own the longest current win streak in the NFL at five games, coming out of a Week 10 game against the New Orleans Saints victorious.
The Broncos own the second-longest winning streak at three games, having last defeated the Buffalo Bills 24-22 Monday night. This game has an over/under total starting at 43 points.
The NFL Week 11’s most-anticipated game will occur Monday as the Philadelphia Eagles (8-1) travel to Kansas City to take on the Chiefs (7-2).
Both teams own their respective conference’s best record and both enter the game fresh off a bye. The last Super Bowl rematch features an over/under starting at 45.5 points.
Bye Week: Atlanta Falcons, New Orleans Saints, New England Patriots, Indianapolis Colts
