The season of major injuries continued in Week 10, with Drew Brees going down with broken ribs and a partially collapsed lung. It is always interesting to see how an injury of that magnitude to such an important player affects the team as a whole. This is especially true when the team in question is one that many people are looking at as a legitimate Super Bowl contender. This is why it is never a good idea to get too excited about any team, as they are all just one bad injury away from their season falling apart. We can only hope that Brees recovers quickly and that the major injuries grind to a halt as we look ahead to our Week 11 parlay picks. That being said, let’s get right to it so you can wager against their NFL odds.
Week 11 Parlay Picks for the 2020 NFL Regular Season
NFL Week 11 SU Parlay – Bengals, Browns, Packers
The first step in rebuilding a football team is to get a franchise QB in place to build around. The Bengals look to have that with Joe Burrow, while Washington looks a million miles away in that regard. These two teams hook up this weekend, with the Bengals getting the nod.
While it is the Steelers getting all the headlines in the AFC North, we should give some credit to the Cleveland Browns, who are putting together a winning season. I think they pick up win #7 this weekend against the struggling Philadelphia Eagles.
The race for the #1 spot in the NFC looks as though it might be about to go down to the wire. The Green Bay Packers are very much in the hunt, but they have a tough one on the road in Indianapolis in Week 11. A close one, but I am taking the Packers to win.
NFL Week 11 ATS Parlay – Dolphins (-3 ½), Vikings (-7), Chiefs (-7)
The Miami Dolphins are making a serious move in the AFC, winning 5 in a row and looking great with Tua Tagovailoa under center. The Dolphins have covered the spread in each of those wins and are 5-0 ATS in their last 5 visits to Denver. Let’s call this one #6.
Another team that has suddenly woken up heading into the second half are the Minnesota Vikings, who have now reeled off 3 straight wins. They are at home to a banged-up Dallas Cowboys team on Sunday, so I like them to win and cover again.
The 8-1 Kansas City Chiefs will be out for revenge this weekend on the road to the Las Vegas Raiders, who happen to be the only team to beat the defending champs this season. I can’t see the Chiefs losing to the same team twice.
NFL Week 11 O/U Parlay – Falcons (U51 ½), Lions (O49), Steelers (O46 ½)
At the top of this piece, we spoke about the injury to Drew Brees and how that might affect the Saints. We will get out first hint this weekend when they host the Falcons. I see the Saints relying heavily on the run, which should help keep the point total UNDER.
The Detroit Lions are looking to build on a 30-27 win over Washington last weekend and will have a good shot at doing so against a Carolina Panthers team without Christian McCaffrey in the fold. 4 of the last 6 games in this matchup have gone OVER.
The Steelers are a perfect 9-0 and are huge favorites to hit double-digit wins this weekend when they face the hapless Jacksonville Jaguars. Pittsburgh doesn’t tend to run up the score, but I think they win big here and take the total OVER.
