NFL Week 11 Betting Lines
Some NFL experts tout the Atlanta Falcons as a team that could surprise for the 2021 campaign. Falcons quarterback Matt Ryan is winding down an excellent career but still has enough in the tank to win games. Atlanta’s problem has been a defense that has been defenseless for the past several seasons. Rookie head coach Arthur Smith takes over and brings a much-needed new voice and fresh ideas. The Falcons will be hosting the GOAT of coaches Bill Belichick and the New England Patriots in the Thursday night game. The Hoodie was humiliated last year after Tom Brady broke away on his own and led the Tampa Bay Buccaneers to Super Bowl glory. Meanwhile, New England flopped badly without the GOAT of quarterbacks. Belichick has still failed to add game breakers to his offensive lineup.
BYE WEEK: Denver, Los Angeles Rams
One of the great NFC North rivalries will be renewed when the Minnesota Vikings host the Green Bay Packers. Minnesota was rated as one of the biggest disappointments of the entire 2020 season. It is interesting to note that the Vikings were within one game of the Super Bowl in 2017, and have not been that close ever since. Kirk Cousins was brought in as quarterback in 2018 but has failed to fulfill the billing as the final piece of the Super Bowl puzzle for the Vikings.
The Jacksonville Jaguars will have a representative body of work by this point in the season when they host the San Francisco 49ers. The big question that gamblers have is which 49ers team and quarterback will we get for this one? San Francisco was ravaged by injuries in both 2018 and 2020 but went to the Super Bowl in 2019 when they were able to stay healthy.
The Cincinnati Bengals lost 2020 NFL Draft number one overall pick, Joe Burrow, to a horrific injury early in the season. The Bengals and Burrow will attempt to regroup as they travel to Las Vegas to face a Raiders team that continues to frustrate gamblers. Chucky Gruden has not moved the needle as far as most NFL observers expected in his three years on the job. Las Vegas had a strong offense last year, but the defense was a major liability. Not much has been done to fix the problem, and gamblers are running out of patience.
Perhaps the marquee matchup of the week is the Dallas Cowboys at the Kansas City Chiefs. Sure, Dallas is always overhyped, but this year they almost certainly will be improved. However, Arrowhead Stadium is not for the faint of heart. Especially when going up against Patrick Mahomes and the Chiefs.
The Los Angeles Chargers will host the Pittsburgh Steelers on NBC Sunday Night Football. Veteran Pittsburgh gunslinger Ben Roethlisberger and 2020 NFL Rookie Offensive Player of the year Justin Herbert of the Chargers make for an outstanding matchup of quarterbacks.
The Tampa Bay Buccaneers will host the New York Giants on ESPN Monday Night Football. Last year, the Giants were a pesky and profitable team because of a top-ten rated defense and hard-nosed attitude instilled by head coach Joe Judge. But the Buccaneers showed everyone in the Super Bowl that their success was no fluke. Tampa Bay will be a better and more confident football team for 2021.
