A trio of playoff and Super Bowl hopefuls are all looking good s they get set for their respective Week 11 matchups. Can the Cleveland Browns get the upset over the struggling Pittsburgh Steelers? Will the Minnesota Vikings snap out of their funk against the Arizona Cardinals? Last but not least, can the L.A. Rams take down the streaking Miami Dolphins to record consecutive victories for the first time since Bill Clinton was in office? Let’s find out the NFL lines now!

NFL Week 11 ATS Picks

Pittsburgh at Cleveland

When: 1:00 PM ET, Sunday, November 20, 2016
Where: FirstEnergy Stadium, Cleveland, Ohio
TV: CBS
NFL Odds: Pittsburgh -9

Analysis: I know the Pittsburgh Steelers have lost four consecutive games, but I’ll be completely stunned if Ben Roethlisberger and company don’t blow the Cleveland Browns out of the water in their Week 11 AFC North divisional showdown this coming weekend. Despite their struggles, the Steelers still have one of the most dangerous trios in the league in Roethlisberger, Antonio Brown and Le’Veon Bell and I fully expect all three to play at a high level as the Steelers roll all over their overmatched division rivals. Pittsburgh has won two straight over Cleveland and five of the last six meetings overall while going 4-2 ATS along the way. Pittsburgh wins by double digits to easily cover the spread!

NFL Pick: Pittsburgh -9.5 Points

Arizona at Minnesota

When: 1:00 PM ET, Sunday, November 20, 2016
Where: U.S. Bank Stadium, Minneapolis, Minnesota
TV: FOX
NFL Odds: Arizona -1

Analysis: The Arizona Cardinals (4-4- 1 SU, 3-6 ATS) may not look much like the 13-win team they were last season, but Carson Palmer and company are still the pick to win and cover the NFL betting line against a Minnesota Vikings (5-4 SU, 5-4 ATS) team that has lost four straight – after winning their first five games this season. While the Vikes have been limited to 20 points or less in each of their last four games, Arizona has scored 23 points or more in three of their last five games. More importantly, the Cardinals are starting to play much better defense as they’ve limited four of their last five opponents to 21 points or less and two of those opponents to six points or less. Arizona has the best quarterback and running back in this matchup and will win outright to cover the spread against a Vikings team that has gone 0-4 ATS over their last four games.

NFL Pick: Arizona -1 Point

Miami at L.A. Rams

When: 4:05 PM ET, Sunday, November 20, 2016
Where: Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum, Los Angeles, California
TV: FOX
NFL Odds: L.A. Rams -1

Analysis: I can not tell a lie. After repeatedly ripping the Miami Dolphins and quarterback Ryan Tannehill, I’m backing off the gas pedal because of Miami’s suddenly newfound desire to actually compete for four full quarters. The Fins have won four in a row while not giving up more than 25 points in any contest while Jeff Fisher’s mediocre Rams squad has been limited to 10 points or less in three straight games. The Dolphins are suddenly getting after people defensively and have played well enough offensively to beat most teams, including Los Angeles. The Rams are mediocre at quarterback with veteran Case Keenum still starting over No. 1 overall draft pick Jared Goff and will lose this game outright while failing to cover the spread!

Pick: Miami +1 Point
