NFL Week 11 Tips

Green Bay Packers @ Seattle Seahawks

The Thursday night game in the NFL is an important one for two bubble teams in Week 11. The Green Bay Packers, at 4-4-1, will travel to Seattle to face the 4-5 Seahawks. With the Wild Card standings in the NFC featuring two teams that have 5 and 6 wins at this point in the season, the loser between Green Bay and Seattle will take a major step backwards when it comes to playoff contention.

In this case, bettors should be backing Aaron Rodgers and the Packers. Rodgers has faced criticism for several weeks now for what is a mediocre overall season for Green Bay. However, you have to know that he's simply going to rise to the occasion and prove his doubters wrong. Something like that happened last week as he lead the Packers to a comfortable spread-covering victory over Miami.

The odds are really a selling point for Green Bay in this game. They enter as moneyline underdogs, priced at $2.25 in the contest. 

For the criticism that has gone Rodgers' way, let's not ignore that Seattle is having a poor season -- albeit much more quietly. Take $2.25 in this game for the Packers to win on the road.

Minnesota Vikings @ Chicago Bears

The Chicago Bears are probably going to handle the Minnesota Vikings in their Week 11 match-up. It's a game that will likely determine the favorite to win the division. In Chicago's case, if they get the win then they will be two up in that column with Minnesota holding a tie-game result in their record.

A 4-1 home record for the Bears makes them a clear pick to win on Sunday. But another trend to look at is that Chicago has often won big at home. They beat the Lions by 12 in their last game and they beat the Jets by 14 a few weeks ago. Also, the Bears posted a 38-point victory against Tampa Bay in the early part of the season.

Minnesota is a tougher customer than the teams that Chicago has beaten up on in the examples provided. But the Vikings are having a disappointing season at 5-3-1. 

Take Chicago to win this test at $1.71.

Tennessee Titans @ Indianapolis Colts

The Indianapolis Colts appear to have sorted out some of their problems from earlier in the season. They have won three straight games and, in two of them, they've posted either big or huge spreads. The competition has not been great lately but the Colts were 1-5 a few games ago. Now at 4-5, their fans have to be optimistic about their chances of beating a 5-4 Tennessee team this week.

One thing that the Colts have done well of late is protecting their quarterback. That's a good explanation as to why they've posted their two best offensive games recently. 

But if you take a close look at the Colts, they weren't actually incredulous offensively at any point in the season. They have just one game where their offense wasn't there at all and that was back in Week 2 when they scored just nine points. They didn't get demolished in a game at New England, they only lost to the Texans by three, and a loss at Philly by 4 isn't anything discrediting.

The Colts appear to have some substance as they face Tennessee. Take Indianapolis on the moneyline at $1.83 with Ladbrokes.

Pittsburgh Steelers @ Jacksonville Jaguars

The Pittsburgh Steelers enter Week 11 with all kinds of momentum. They look to continue it as they face the Jacksonville Jaguars, a team that has posted five straight losses to fall to 3-6. Clearly, the Jags are one of the disappointments for this season and it will now take a minor miracle for them to make the playoffs.

Yet, the Jags are only entering Week 11 against Pittsburgh as small +4.5-point underdogs with Unibet. That's  a tough line to take on Jacksonsville given all of their struggles. A handicap that small would have only helped their backers one time in their last five losses. 

Bettors should probably go for something in this game. Forget the standard spread bets that are priced as coin tosses. Instead, go for Pittsburgh covering a large adjusted spread. The Steelers can be found at $4.40 to cover -15.5 with Unibet. The way Pittsburgh is playing they could run the score up in this Week 11 contest. In two of Jacksonville's last five games, they did fall by 16 or more. $4.40 is long enough to justify the risk in this case.

Super Bowl LIII Tips

The 2018 Super Bowl saw the Phildelphia Eagles beat the New England Patriots to claim their maiden NFL title. With the season complete, betting odds are now open for the next season with some sportsbooks and you can get in early for Super Bowl LIII.

When betting well ahead of time, you should only look for long odds. You might think that the New England Patriots are going to win but their odds of $6.00 with Unibet aren't likely to shorten in the offseason. One team with long odds that might see some improvements over the offseason is Los Angeles Rams.

The Rams had a break-out year that saw the emergence of their young quarterback. Jared Goff, playing in his second season, threw for a completion rate of 62.1%. That marks an improvement of 7.5% from the previous season and his QB rating improved by nearly 40 points. 

At $21.00 to win the Super Bowl, the Rams are worth a long-range poke as they have a talented young QB to rally and build around. Certainly, those odds are long enough that you can make a meaningful bet without having to commit a big portion of your bankroll.
