Week 11 of the NFL is already upon us and what a drama-filled season it’s already been.
News broke on Thursday that Cowboys running back Ezekiel Elliot will not protest his suspension, so Dallas will be without one star when they face division leaders the Eagles this week.
The Steelers and Titans kick another week in the NFL and there are some high-quality games scheduled.
12:35pm Pittsburgh Steelers vs. Tennesse Titans
Both teams are riding four-game winning streaks heading into this game and it should be a great opening to round 11.
The Steelers have beaten the Chiefs, Bengals, Lions and Colts, but they struggled to get past the Colts last week – winning by a mere late field goal.
The Titans last three wins have come by less than five points and we think they might struggle away from home here.

Steelers by 10
5:00am Chicago Bears vs. Detroit Lions
The Bears were expected to beat the Packers last week, but we knew the Packers had the upset in them, mostly because the Bears can’t be trusted.
Neither can the Lions, but they have played very well away from home this season (3-1) and they’re clearly the better team.
Bookmakers have this one close, but the Lions should have too much fire power.
Betting tip: Lions –3 @ $1.90 (BET NOW)
Lions by 6
5:00am Cleveland Browns vs. Jacksonville Jaguars
The season can’t be much worse for the Browns at 0-9.
That’s a dreadful record and the majority of those losses have come at home. Playing the Jaguars at home this week won’t help and we’re not sure the Browns can stop the run.
Expect the Jaguars to feature the run heavily and it’s something the Browns won’t be able to stop.
Betting tip: Jaguars –7.5 @ $1.90 (BET NOW)
Jaguars by 12
5:00am Green Bay Packers vs. Baltimore Ravens
Green Bay needed to beat the Bears last week to keep their season alive and they did it in style.
They have struggled without Aaron Rogers at the helm, winning just one game, but Brett Hundley will have more confidence now and the Ravens are a team that is struggling.
The Ravens are one of those teams that punters typically follow throughout the season, but they’re offering little and the Packers could continue to win.

5:00am Miami Dolphins vs. Tampa Bay Buccaneers
This was supposed to be the opening game of the season, back when dreams of making the playoffs were a reality.
Fast forward 11 weeks and the playoff chances seem dim for both teams, with these teams only winning one game from their last eight combined.
That was the Buccs’ win over the Jets last week 15-10, and they might be able to ride that momentum late in the season with a new QB.

5:00am Minnesota Vikings vs. L.A. Rams
The Vikings and the Rams set down for what should be a top-quality game on Monday morning.
Vikings’ fans have plenty to be excited about at 7-2, but the Rams have been the highest scoring team of the season and they don’t look like slowing down.
Bookmakers have the Vikings as the slight favourites and the home advantage would have something to do with that, but don’t write off the Rams completely as they have looked like one of the better teams this year.
Betting tip: Vikings -2 @ $1.91 (BET NOW)
Vikings by 3
5:00am New Orleans Saints vs. Washington Redskins
The Saints are marching into the playoffs and the Redskins are unlikely to stop them.
After a thrashing of the Bills on Monday, the Saints improved to 7-2 on the back of stellar offensive production and a defence that doesn’t like giving up points.
Those two factors will make them tough to stop moving forward.

5:00am New York Giants vs. Kansas City Chiefs
The Chiefs have hit a rough patch, but expect that to change this week.
New York is offering absolutely nothing to get excited about this season and cue up another loss to Eli Manning and his men.
Bookmakers have installed the Chiefs as double-digit underdogs and we’re not surprised at all.
Betting tip: Chiefs –10.5 @ $1.91 (BET NOW)
Chiefs by 21
5:00am Houston Texans vs. Arizona Cardinals
Both of these teams need the win desperately and the bookmakers are finding it tough to split them in the market.
At 3-6, the Texans are struggling without their star quarterback and the Cardinals are in a similar boat.
This could be a battle of the turnovers and the team that avoids the big mistakes should come out on top.

9:05am L.A Chargers vs. Buffalo Bills
We were rather confident that the Bills would make something of their season this year after hitting 5-2, but pressure isn’t something they like.
They have dropped both games since in horrible fashion and now they’re starting a rookie QB in place of Tyrod Taylor.
This plays right into the hands of the Chargers which will be ready to strike at home.
Betting tip: Chargers –4 @ $2 (BET NOW)
Chargers by 10
8:25am Denver Broncos vs. Cincinnati Bengals
For some reason the Broncos attracted a lot of support from punters against the Patriots last week, but they got taught a harsh lesson.
The Broncos were manhandled by the better team and a quick bounce back will be needed against the hungry Bengals.
Both teams look gone for the playoff race and this might be won by the team that wants it more. We’re picking an upset.
Betting tip: Bengals @ $2.25 (BET NOW)
Bengals by 7
8:25am Oakland Raiders vs. New England Patriots
This is listed as a Raiders home game, but it’s being played in Mexico and the Patriots should be the heavily-favoured side.
They destroyed the Broncos last round and there’s plenty more offence in store for teams coming up against the Patriots this season.
Oakland have looked out of sorts this season and there’s no consistency in their side.
We’re expecting the Patriots to put on a show for the Mexican crowd and cover the spread easily.
Betting tip: Patriots –6.5 @ $1.91 (BET NOW)
Patriots by 14
12:30pm Dallas Cowboys vs. Philadelphia Eagles
The Cowboys couldn’t get the job done without Elliot last week and we’re not sure they’ll get it done this week either.
The Eagles are flying high this season at 8-1 and they look like one of the top Super Bowl contenders.
Playing them away from home will concern punters, but they’re 3-1 away from home this season and the Cowboys have on and off-field problems to worry about and there’s little QB Dak Prescott can do about it.
Betting tip: Eagles -4 @ $1.91 (BET NOW)
Eagles by 12
12:30pm Seattle Seahawks vs. Atlanta Falcons
Falcons’ fans would have been happy with their performance last week, but that might only last one week.
The Seahawks are tough to beat at home and although they haven’t been able to protect QB Russell Wilson this season, they’re still 6-3 on the season.
The 12th man is a factor when teams come into Seattle and Atlanta is a Dome team – not suited to playing in the harsh conditions in Seattle.
Betting tip: Seahawks –2.5 @ $1.91 (BET NOW)
