Follow us as we take you through an early online football betting outlook at some of the sure ATS picks you can start writing in your agenda as you get ready for an exciting round of Pro Football.
ATS Picks For NFL Week 11
Buffalo Bills at Cincinnati Bengals (-5.5)
Week 11 NFL ATS Pick: Bengals (-5.5)
Looking at the manner in which the Buffalo Bills played spiritedly in the 2015 season and hanged tough with some of the best teams in the league, it wouldn’t be far-fetched to expect a strong fight from them when they play Cincinnati in this fixture. Unfortunately for the Bills, the Bengals have had their number in recent history, winning all of their last three straight meetings, including the 34-21 win over Buffalo when the two teams met last year. With this 2016 matchup set to take place in Cincinnati, I’d expect nothing less than another comfortable win by regular-season win specialist, Andy Dalton, and the Bengals.
Tampa Bay Buccaneers at Kansas City Chiefs (-7)
Week 11 NFL ATS Pick: Buccaneers (+7)
The Chiefs and Bucs haven’t played each other since 2012 and a lot has changed for both teams since then. But as an interesting note, the Chiefs have lost their last four straight games to Tampa Bay dating back to 1999. So is it that Tampa Bay has been Kansas City’s Achilles foot over the recent years? Seemingly so, I believe. That said, the Chiefs are a more formidable unit than they were in 2012, so even with their bad history against the Bucs, they should be able to win this fixture. As for the point spread, well, that’s another thing altogether. I mean, the Bucs are not an elite football powerhouse, but Jamies Winston had a solid rookie season, something we believe will carry on and give him the confidence to play even better in 2016. And if Tampa Bay’s defense is equally able to chip in with a decent production, as we expect them to do, the Bucs should have a shot at covering the spread against KC.
Arizona Cardinals at Minnesota Vikings (-1.5)
Week 11 NFL ATS Pick: Cardinals (+1.5)
When you have a run-reliant team with a top-6 rushing offense playing against one with a top-6 rushing defense (Arizona), then the game is most likely to be decided by who is able to pass or defend the pass better. That’s the scenario we are likely to have when the Vikings (ranked #4 in rushing offense last season) host the Cardinals (#6 rushing defense last season) meet in Week 11. The fact that both teams have also improved greatly over the past couple of seasons further makes it harder to predict the winner of this game. Even so, Arizona boasts of a much-better passing game, thanks to the strong arms of veteran QB Carson Palmer, and the Zona D is no slouch either. This should give Arizona some slight edge here. Plus, even if Palmer isn’t able to bring his A-game in the passing game and Zona’s passing defense proves somewhat vulnerable to Teddy Bridgewater and his aerial targets; Arizona’s offensive runners (ranked #8 last season) are talented enough to exploit the weaknesses in Minnesota’s #17-ranked rush defense from last year. And need I remind you, the Cardinals—in spite of losing their previous three straight games to Minnesota—ended their ominous run against the Vikings with a 23-20 win when the two teams met on December 10, 2015. All said, I therefore expect another close game that will see Arizona claiming another narrow win.
Philadelphia Eagles at Seattle Seahawks (-9)
Week 11 NFL ATS Pick: Seahawks (-9)
The Seahawks have won their last two overall meetings against Philly by margins of 10 points and 17 points, so getting favored by 9 points at home in this game comes as no surprise. Obviously, there is enough talent in veteran QBs Chase Daniel and Sam Bradford, as well as rookie signal-caller Carson Wentz to make life difficult for the Seahawks. But when you consider that battle-tested Russell Wilson will the guy on the opposite side of the field and Seattle’s solid defense has been among the best in the league for the past 5-or-so years, it goes without saying that the betting value here will be with the top-to-bottom balanced Seahawks.
