Bears vs Vikings

Two legendary franchises clash on Sunday Night Football when the Chicago Bears host the Minnesota Vikings. Kickoff is at 8:20 p.m. ET from Soldier Field in downtown Chicago. With the Green Bay Packers breathing down their necks, the winner is in excellent position to seize the NFC North and host a playoff game, while the loser must jostle with more than half-a-dozen teams in the crowded NFC Wild Card race. Chicago opened as a 3-point favorite and is now laying 2.5. The Over-Under, which opened at 45.5, is now at 43.5 in the latest Vikings vs. Bears odds after falling throughout the week. Before you make any Vikings vs. Bears picks for Sunday Night Football in Week 11, check out what the SportsLine Projection Model has to say.

The advanced computer model simulates every NFL game 10,000 times, and those who have followed it have seen massive returns. SportsLine’s proprietary computer model went 176-80 last season and beat over 95 percent of CBS Office Pool players in 2016 and ’17. It also performed better than 98 percent of experts tracked by NFLPickWatch.com during that span. Additionally, it went 48-34 on A-rated picks against the spread last season, and $100 bettors who followed it the past two seasons are up nearly $4,000.

The model has continued to nail its top-rated picks in 2018, entering Week 11 on a blistering 10-0 run. For the season, it is now 24-9 on all top-rated picks, extending its two-year run to a strong 72-43. And when it comes to all straight-up picks, the model is 98-48 this season, again ranking in the top 15 for NFLPickWatch.com. Anybody who has been following it is way, way up.

Now the model has dialed in on Vikings vs. Bears. We can tell you it’s leaning under, but it’s also generated a spread pick that’s cashing in nearly 60 percent of simulations. You can only see it over at SportsLine.

The model has factored in that Bears quarterback Mitchell Trubisky’s maturity has flourished in his sophomore pro season. Already having thrown 19 touchdown passes, he’s showing tremendous poise in the pocket. As a rookie, he seemed unsure of how to elude pressure, but now he’s making smarter decisions with the football. He’s rushed for 320 yards — many on key third downs that have kept drives alive. Receivers Taylor Gabriel and Allen Robinson have combined for 68 receptions and tight end Trey Burton has hit pay dirt five times.

The Bears’ rushing attack has been relentless behind Jordan Howard, who has scored five times this season. Backfield compatriot Tarik Cohen is adept at causing coverage mismatches when he flares out of the backfield on screens. Not only is he netting 4.4 yards per carry, he’s also crushing defenses as a receiver. Three of Cohen’s five scores have been through the air.

But just because the Bears have been motoring on offense doesn’t mean they’ll cover on Sunday Night Football, especially against a divisional rival that’s won six of the last seven in the series.

After a sluggish start, the Vikings have propelled themselves back into playoff contention. Quarterback Kirk Cousins is completing 71 percent of his throws and has 17 touchdowns. He’s been buoyed by the dynamic receiving duo of Adam Thielen and Stefon Diggs.

Thielen is putting together another Pro Bowl-worthy season with 78 catches for 947 yards and seven scores. His ability to out-jump defenders on 50-50 balls and set his squad up with game-changing field position has allowed the Vikings to score at a brisk pace. Diggs continues to menace secondaries in the open field with 283 yards after catch despite battling injury.

Raiders vs Cardinals

Raiders vs Cardinals Odds, Analysis, NFL Betting Pick

Click here to Watch Now

Denver is a dismal 1-4 against the spread over its last five games, playing below expectations. Arizona, meanwhile, isn’t doing any better in the win column but at least it’s making money, going 3-0-1 ATS its last four times out. Who’s the better bet for Thursday’s Broncos-Cardinals battle?

NFL point spread: The Broncos opened as two-point favorites; the total was 40.5 early in the week, according to sportsbooks monitored by OddsShark. (Line updates and matchup report)

NFL betting pick, via OddsShark computer: 23.1-20.4 Broncos (NFL picks on every game)  

Why the Broncos can cover the spread

Denver started 2-0 this season but now seeks to stop a four-game losing skid after falling at home last week to the 6-0 Rams 23-20. The Broncos trailed Los Angeles at the half 13-3 and 20-3 in the third quarter, twice pulled to within one score but could not complete the comeback.

However, Denver did cover the spread as a seven-point home dog.

Frre Singup to watch now

On the day, the Broncos got beat on the stat sheet, but what really hurt was a taunting penalty in the first quarter that probably cost Denver four points, two other penalties that took the Broncos out of field-goal range and an interception in Rams territory that cost them another shot at points.

So Denver has played two of the favorites to reach the Super Bowl this season, the Rams and Chiefs, and lost to them by a total of seven points.

Why the Cardinals can cover the spread

Arizona is looking to bounce back this week from a 27-17 loss at Minnesota last week. The Cardinals actually drew first blood with an early field goal, and only trailed 13-10 at halftime. They then gave up the first 14 points out of the locker room to fall out of contention but scored on a David Johnson touchdown with seven minutes left and ended up pushing the spread as 10-point dogs.

On the day, Arizona also got beat on the stat sheet but what really hurt was an early fumble that led to a Vikings field goal, two plays that came up empty from the Minnesota 1-yard line and two later drives that ended inside Vikings territory without points.

Then again, Minnesota can be a tough place to play, especially for a rookie quarterback.

Two weeks ago the Cardinals and their rookie QB picked up their first win of this season, 28-18 over San Francisco. Just before that Arizona lost to Seattle 20-17 but covered getting 3.5 points. And just before that the Cardinals lost to Chicago 16-14 but covered at plus-5.5. So Arizona has been keeping games close as of late.

Smart betting pick

Despite recent its performance, Denver is still the better team here, playing on the road against a short spread. So the Broncos are the better bet.

NFL betting trends

The Broncos are 5-1 ATS in their last six games vs the Cardinals.

The total has gone over in the Broncos’ last seven games vs the Cardinals.

The Cardinals are 2-7-1 ATS in their last 10 games at home after covering in their most recent home game.

Philadelphia Eagles vs. New Orleans Saints Odds, Analysis, NFL Betting Pick

The Philadelphia Eagles are suffering through a case of the Super Bowl flu, winning just four of their first nine games outright this season and going 3-6 against the spread. The New Orleans Saints, on the other hand, own an eight-game winning streak, with seven covers in a row.

The Saints are favored by a big number for Sunday afternoon’s bout with the Super Bowl champs at the Superdome.

fREE singup to watch now

NFL point spread: The Saints opened as seven-point favorites; the total was 52 early in the week, according to sportsbooks monitored by OddsShark. (Line updates and matchup report)

NFL betting pick, via OddsShark computer: 36.3-16.8 Saints (NFL picks on every game)

           

Why the Eagles can cover the spread

Philadelphia is hoping to rebound from a 27-20 loss at home to Dallas last week. The Eagles were trailing the Cowboys 13-3 in the second quarter before tying the score at 13-13 in the third. Philadelphia went down 27-20 with three minutes to go before driving to the Dallas 32-yard line in the final seconds. They completed a pass inside the 10-yard line, only to have time run out.

On the night Philadelphia produced 421 yards of total offense. It just needed about nine more to force overtime. The Eagles’ five losses this season have come by a total of 22 points, none by more than seven points. At 4-5 overall Philadelphia trails Minnesota by a game-and-a-half in the battle for the second NFC Wild Card spot.

 

Why the Saints can cover the spread

The Saints are the hottest team in the league, winning eight in a row, including a 51-14 blowout of the Bengals in Cincinnati last week. New Orleans scored touchdowns on its first five possessions of the game, led 35-7 at the half and pushed that to 51-7 in the fourth quarter as they strolled to the pay window as a six-point favorite.

On the afternoon the Saints made 33 first downs to just 13 for the Bengals, out-gained Cincinnati 509-284, won the ground game 244-110, dominated time of possession by a 40/20 split and won the turnover battle 2-0.

New Orleans has now out-rushed each of its last seven opponents. As mentioned above, it’s 7-0 ATS over that span. At 8-1 overall the Saints trail the Rams by a half-game in the battle for the best record in the NFC. But they also hold the tiebreaker on Los Angeles, thanks to that 45-35 head-to-head victory two weeks ago.

 

Smart betting pick

Most signs point to New Orleans here, the hot team against the struggling opponent. But the point spreads will eventually catch up to the Saints. Meanwhile, the Eagles are playing close games. New Orleans will probably win this one outright but smart money takes Philly and the points.

 

NFL betting trends

The total has gone over in six of the Eagles’ last eight games vs. the Saints.

The Eagles are 5-2 ATS in their last seven games on the road vs. the Saints.

The total has gone over in 13 of the Saints’ last 17 games in the late afternoon.

Why the Broncos Can Cover the Spread

The Broncos are trying to buck a two-game losing streak after falling to Houston Texans 19-17 in Week 9.

Denver fell down 7-0 to the Texans early and trailed 13-3 in the second quarter. They then rallied to go ahead 17-16 in the third. At the end, down by two, Denver drove 53 yards into field-goal range but usually reliable kicker Brandon McManus pushed a 51-yarder wide right.

On the day, the Broncos outgained Houston 348-290. But the only turnover of the game, a second-quarter fumble and an ill-advised field goal attempt near the end of the first half combined to cost Denver 10 points.

The Broncos have outgained each of their past three opponents, and outrushed two of them. Also, four of their six losses this season have come by a total of 16 points. Still, at 3-6 overall, Denver only trails the Cincinnati Bengals by two games in the battle for the second AFC wild-card spot.

 

Why the Chargers Can Cover the Spread

Los Angeles rides a six-game winning streak into this contest, after beating the Oakland Raiders on the road 20-6 last time out.

The Chargers spotted the Raiders the first three points of the game but led 10-3 at the half. Los Angeles then scored the first seven points out of the locker room and held on from there for the victory and the cover as a 10-point favorite.

The Chargers outgained Oakland 335-317, and 42 of the Raiders’ yards came on a fake punt. So Los Angeles has now outgained five of its past six opponents and outrushed four of its past six foes. It’s also 4-1 ATS its past five times out.

At 7-2 overall Los Angeles trails the first-place Kansas City by two games in the AFC West but also owns the No. 5 spot in the AFC playoff standings.

 

Smart Betting Pick

The Chargers are hot, but Denver has been keeping games close. Also, four of the past five meetings in this series have been decided by one score or less. Los Angeles should win this game outright, but the smart money bets the Broncos plus the points.

 

NFL Betting Trends

The Broncos are 5-2 SU and ATS in their past seven games on the road against the Chargers.

The total has gone under in the Broncos’ past five games on the road against the Chargers.

The total has gone under in seven of the Chargers’ past eight games against divisional opponents.

Texans vs Redskins

 

The Houston Texans (6-3) return from their bye week looking to extend their six-game winning streak on Sunday when they visit the Washington Redskins (6-3) as small road favorites at sportsbooks. Both teams are leading their respective divisions, with the Redskins coming off a 16-3 road victory against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers last week.

NFL point spread: The Texans opened as three-point favorites; the total was 43 early in the week, according to sportsbooks monitored by OddsShark. (Line updates and matchup report)

The favorite is 4-0 straight up and 3-0-1 against the spread in the past four meetings in this series, according to the OddsShark NFL Database, which obviously bodes well for Houston here. The Texans are also an impressive 3-1 SU and 4-0 ATS in their last four games following a bye after edging the Denver Broncos 19-17 two weeks ago on the road as one-point underdogs.

They were fortunate to take advantage of a missed 51-yard field goal by Denver kicker Brandon McManus as time expired, but those are the lucky breaks that go your way sometimes when you are having a special season.

Many thought Washington would lose last week at Tampa Bay, but the team’s defense held strong, especially in the red zone. The Buccaneers became the first team in NFL history to rack up more than 450 yards of total offense and score three points or less, which is definitely a testament to the Redskins defensively.

Of course, Tampa Bay’s ineptness was the deciding factor in that game, and Houston will be a new challenge. Washington has gone 6-2 SU and ATS in its last eight home games though.

The Redskins have thrived as home underdogs recently, going a perfect 3-0 SU and ATS in that situation this season. While the Texans have played extremely well since an 0-3 start, three of their six wins during their current streak have been decided by three points or less, with two of them going to overtime.

Washington’s defense will slow down Houston’s offense in this one, with safety D.J. Swearinger improving to 3-0 against his former teams this year after already beating the Buccaneers and Arizona Cardinals.

Buccaneers vs Giants

After the atrocity in New Orleans, the Giants will look to avenge themselves in Tampa Bay against a young Buccaneers team that is much better than most people give it credit for. While the Bucs are just 3-4, a one-point loss to the Redskins is the only thing keeping 2014’s worst team under .500 at the moment.

Additionally, the Bucs are coming off an encouraging win in Atlanta, while the Giants are of course coming off their horrendous defensive performance and soul-crushing loss in the Superdome.

Eli Manning threw a career-high six touchdowns in a hostile environment and still lost 52-49 thanks to the Giants’ hideous defensive performance. Though New York has a new defensive coordinator in Steve Spagnuolo, it’s more of the same from this group, which has gotten gashed through the air for years now.

Even with Manning’s stellar performance, the Giants allowed opposing QB Drew Brees to tie an NFL record with seven touchdowns—he entered the game with just eight for the season. Even so, they still had a late lead, before a facemask penalty by punter Brad Wing set the Saints up in field-goal range and allowed Kai Forbath to knock one in with no time remaining.

Buccaneers vs Giants Football Live Stream

While “all signs point” to defensive end Jason Pierre-Paul returning against the Bucs after being a full participant in practice, fans should temper expectations for him. After all, he still hasn’t proved he can play in the wake of his fireworks accident. He also had nine sacks in the team’s final five games last season, which could be viewed as a late push for a big contract in meaningless games.

The mere fact is that JPP hasn’t consistently proved he’s one of the game’s elite defensive ends, but maybe his incident will make him more motivated to dominate. The Giants could certainly use that type of fire from the front four this Sunday against Tampa.

The star wide receiver is tied for second in touchdowns among wide receivers in their first 20 career games, according to the Giants’ official Twitter account. Beckham trails only Randy Moss, who had 20 in his first 20 games.

The Giants have a whopping 11 players on the injury report this week,

It’s mainly guys who were out last week with some new faces mixed in, such as wide receiver Rueben Randle. He did not practice Wednesday, and if he can’t go Sunday, an already-thin group of wide receivers is going to lose an established weapon.

Click Here>>>Buccaneers vs Giants Live

Every NFL team endures injuries, and head coach Tom Coughlin would be the first to tell you that there are no excuses. Blame general manager Jerry Reese for the team’s razor-thin depth for the Giants’ lack of competence when key players go down.

Evans, the second-year wide receiver, is often overlooked because he came from an amazing draft class last year that was headlined by Giants stud Odell Beckham Jr.

He’s having a down year this season after an explosive 1,000-yard performance as a rookie. Evans has been banged up and has had to undergo another quarterback change in Tampa, but the 6’5″ wideout cannot be overlooked. He’s big and quick and a huge threat to be a game-changer on Sunday.

Though he has yet to have a game with double-digit catches this year, you can blame rookie QB Jameis Winston for that. When he finally realizes how valuable Evans is, especially on the deep ball, this duo will be one of the best in the game.

The Giants usually struggle against mobile quarterbacks, and though Winston makes his noise with his arm, he still has the ability to avoid pressure by moving in the pocket.

After years of having the most feared defensive line in the league, the Giants are now a laughingstock. Opposing quarterbacks have enough time to do their grocery shopping between the time they snap the ball and the time they release it, which makes it much easier for them to go through their reads multiple times and find an open receiver.

Let’s not blame Jason Pierre-Paul for this debacle. The Giants took a “one man’s trash is another man’s treasure” approach to their defensive line in free agency, and they’re paying for it now. They rank last in the league with just nine sacks in eight games and have shown how ugly the defense is when QB pressure isn’t masking it.

Winston is a rookie quarterback who is prone to making mistakes. Though he threw four interceptions against the Panthers earlier in the year, he hasn’t thrown a pick in three weeks—the Giants need to pressure him and change that.

With Rueben Randle affected by a hamstring injury and less than a sure bet to play Sunday, Dwayne Harris may have to step up in his absence.

Only the Giants would sign a guy as a special teams player and have him become their No. 2 receiving option just a few weeks later, but they mistakenly thought Victor Cruz would be ready to start the season and cut James Jones, who has six touchdowns on the season for the Packers.

Harris hasn’t had a 100-yard game this season, but he had two touchdowns last week in New Orleans and tied his career total with three on the season. He’s far from a solid option as a No. 2 wide receiver, but once again, the roster is poorly constructed.

Though he won’t be able to carry an offense, hopefully Odell Beckham Jr. can get off to a hot start and draw enough attention to make Harris useful on Sunday.

Jameis Winston will be able to exploit the Giants secondary.Kevin C. Cox/Getty Images

After I picked the Giants to win a close game in New Orleans, they once again displayed their inability to close out a game in the fourth quarter.

Guessing they’d lose on a last-second field goal set up by a facemask penalty by their punter, though? That’s a new one for sure.

The bottom line is that this team finds ways to lose games in the most inexplicable and frustrating ways, so banking on it to win on the road at this point is just unwise. The Giants will be short-handed again on the defensive side and also could be without a key offensive target in Randle, so there’s not much to like heading into this matchup.

My guess is that Doug Martin runs free and Mike Evans has a huge day to lead the Bucs back to .500, as the Giants sink further into a hole, and the hot seat for Coughlin gets a little warmer.

A key AFC South matchup will take place in Indianapolis on Sunday when the Colts (4-5) host the Tennessee Titans (5-4) as small home favorites at sportsbooks. The Colts have won three straight games following a four-game losing streak while the Titans have won two in a row to pull within one game of first place in the division.

NFL point spread: The Colts opened as three-point favorites; the total was 49 early in the week, according to sportsbooks monitored by OddsShark. (Line updates and matchup report)

Titans vs Colts NFL Football Free Signup

Tennessee has posted its two biggest wins of the season in consecutive weeks, beating the Dallas Cowboys 28-14 on the road in the Week 9 Monday night matchup and then routing the New England Patriots 34-10 at home last Sunday.

The Titans were underdogs of more than four points in both games and won each easily after losing three straight prior to that. In fact, they are 5-2 straight up and 6-1 against the spread in their last seven games as underdogs, according to the OddsShark NFL Database.

Indianapolis quarterback Andrew Luck has never lost to Tennessee, going a perfect 9-0 SU in nine all-time meetings. With or without Luck under center, the Colts are 9-1 SU in the past 10 games between the teams at home and 10-3 ATS in the previous 13 overall as well.

The Colts have also gone an impressive 26-11 SU in their last 37 games versus divisional opponents, and the Titans are just 4-17-1 ATS in their last 22 against AFC South opponents on the road. All of those trends are obviously favorable for the home team here, giving Indianapolis a great shot to win and cover the spread.

The small number makes it tempting to take the Colts in this spot because all they basically need to do is win the game. They have won their last four as home favorites of three points or less, going 3-0-1 ATS in those games. And the push came against the Jacksonville Jaguars last Sunday when they won 29-26 as three-point home favorites.

Indianapolis led Jacksonville 29-16 at halftime though, and you can bet the team will try much harder to score in the second half this time. Take the Colts to win and cover

Steelers vs Jaguars

 

Jacksonville pulled a trick last year that only one other team, an older edition of the Jaguars, had ever accomplished—beating the Steelers twice in Pittsburgh in the same season.

The streaking Steelers get their shot at revenge on Sunday afternoon in Jacksonville, Florida.

NFL point spread: The Steelers opened as 3.5-point favorites; the total was 47.5 early in the week, according to sportsbooks monitored by OddsShark. (Line updates and matchup report)

Pittsburgh rides a five-game winning streak with five straight covers into this contest, after crushing Carolina last Thursday 52-21.

The Steelers spotted the Panthers the first seven points of the game, and they then scored the next 24 to lead 31-14 at the half. Pittsburgh scored the first 21 points out of the locker room, on its way toward some easy cash at minus-3.5.

On the night, Pittsburgh outgained the Panthers 457-242, outrushed the Panthers 138-95 and won the turnover battle 2-0, resulting in 14 Steelers points.

Pittsburgh has now outgained and outrushed each of its last five opponents, most by large margins. Also, after allowing 29 points per game through their first four games, the Steelers have held opponents to just 19 points per game during the winning streak.

The Jags are a tougher client to shill for at the moment, as they are the owners of a five-game losing skid after falling at Indianapolis last week 29-26.

Jacksonville fell down to the Colts in the second quarter 29-13, but it pulled to within a field goal with four minutes left in the game. The Jaguars then got the ball back and drove to the Indianapolis 23-yard line but fumbled it away, killing the comeback.

On the day, the Jaguars outgained Indianapolis 415-366, held a 24-17 edge in first downs and won time of possession by a 35/25 margin. They also pushed the spread as three-point dogs.

Leonard Fournette, in his first action back after missing four games to injury, accounted for 109 yards from scrimmage and two touchdowns.

The Jaguars beat the Steelers twice last season by scores of 30-9 and 45-42, which would seem to give Pittsburgh plenty of motivation for this game. However, revenge is not a reliable factor when it comes to handicapping sporting events.

Also, while Jacksonville just got Fournette back, Pittsburgh may play this one without James Conner. And, of course, Le’Veon Bell isn’t coming back anytime soon.

Panthers vs Lions

 

Two NFC teams coming off losses will meet in Detroit on Sunday when the Lions (3-6) host the Carolina Panthers (6-3) as small road favorites at sportsbooks.

The difference is the Lions have lost three games in a row, while the Panthers suffered their first loss in four games following a three-game winning streak when they were blown out 52-21 by the Pittsburgh Steelers in the Week 10 Thursday night matchup.

NFL point spread: The Panthers opened as 3.5-point favorites; the total was 50.5 early in the week, according to sportsbooks monitored by OddsShark. (Line updates and matchup report)

You can certainly argue that Detroit’s road loss to the Chicago Bears was equally bad last Sunday, trailing 26-7 at halftime and 34-10 at the end of the third quarter.

The Lions scored two garbage touchdowns in the fourth to make the final score 34-22, but they still performed poorly as the Bears snapped a 10-game skid against NFC North opponents.

Carolina will be on the road for the second consecutive week, although the team has had extra time to prepare for Detroit and has won six of the past seven meetings.

The Lions have played better at home this season for the most part outside of a pair of ugly losses to the New York Jets in their first at Ford Field and to the Seattle Seahawks in their last.

In between, they upset the New England Patriots 26-10 as seven-point home underdogs and beat the Green Bay Packers 31-23 in a key divisional game.

Detroit’s three-game losing streak is definitely concerning, but the team begins a crucial three-game homestand now that will make or break Matt Patricia’s first year as head coach. After the meeting with the Panthers, the Lions will host Chicago on Thanksgiving and the Los Angeles Rams in Week 13.

Detroit’s season is obviously on the line here, and while it is doubtful that Patricia would be fired after just one year, he cannot afford to see his team’s struggles continue, either.

The Lions are 8-2 straight up in their last 10 at home after losing their previous game there. That is a trend worth wagering on, so take Detroit to at least cover the spread and possibly pull off the small upset.
