Week 11 NFL Predictions
Created on Nov 13, 2013 9:50 AM EST
Week 10 tightened the Football.com Experts Standings with Brett Spielberg maintaining a one-game lead over Evan Grossman for the top spot. Grossman led all experts with eight wins against the spread last week, followed by Zach Doleiden and Doug Orth's seven correct picks. Spielberg leads the pack with 35 wins on the season, followed by Grossman (34), Doleiden (33) and Josh Grossman (33).
Week 11 has its share of games we love, games we hate, and games we're totally torn on.
The Lions, Chargers and Seahawks are this week's unanimous picks against the spread with all eight experts on their side. Even with Seattle spotting the largest spread (13.5) of the week, the group has no faith in the Vikings being able to stay that close. The Chargers are also a juicy pick, opening as two-point underdogs to the Dolphins in Miami. Detroit is also attractive, giving three points to the sputtering Steelers.
The Colts, Jets, Cardinals, Bears, Browns, Chiefs and Saints are heavy favorites among the group all with seven experts backing them. The Kansas City-Denver game should be a treat to watch, and most of the experts think the eight points the Broncos are spotting the undefeated Chiefs in Denver is too much. Another championship-game-caliber tilt has the 49ers going into New Orleans, opening as a two-point underdog.
Finally, you might want to stay away from the Bucs, Eagles, Giants and Patriots this week, based on our picks. Despite the Monday night matchup between the Patriots and Panthers being a must-watch game, the 2.5 points the Panthers are spotting the road Patriots is not a number many of our experts could get behind in force.
