The NFL will once again expand its horizons in Week 11, with the Texans and Raiders heading to Mexico City for the Monday night game. This will represent the first time since 2005 that the NFL has made the trip south of the border. I tend to try and steer clear of the neutral site games, as it’s tough to know how either team is going to react to the unfamiliar surroundings. While I will be skipping this one entirely, there are still a few games that jump right off the page in the NFL Week 11 schedule. I have already put together parlay picks for the first 10 weeks of the season, and I have to say that the last couple were a little trickier than most. This week looks a little more clear cut, as there are potentially a couple of David versus Goliath match-ups here that should make my NFL betting picks a little easier this time around. Let’s take a look at the 4 games I like in Week 11.
Analyzing The Week 11 Parlay Picks And Predictions For 2016 NFL
Colts over Titans
It can be argued that the Indianapolis Colts overachieved last season, especially with QB Andrew Luck sidelined for a large portion of the season. The silver lining there was that this team proved they are more than just their star QB, and they could well be in a position to make a real Super Bowl push if Luck can stay healthy this season. This has the potential to be a trip up game for the Colts, but I still believe they will get the job done quite comfortably at home.
Steelers over Browns
My first two parts of the parlay ticket each week are usually made up of home teams, but this one is a little too juicy to pass up. The Steelers have absolutely owned the Cleveland Browns for as long as anyone can remember, and Big Ben has delivered some of his best passing numbers against their AFC North rivals. This may very well be the first pick that I add to my parlay ticket his week.
Chiefs over Buccaneers
Since I already took a road team this week, let’s go with another home team who I think should come up with a win in Week 11. The Kansas City Chiefs are looking to build on a solid 2015 season, and they will be hoping that Alex Smith can continue to excel at the QB position. Their D should be as good as ever, and they are more than good enough to stop the throwing and running game of Jameis Winston, who may well be forced into making a number of errors in this one.
Jaguars at Lions
I am one of those people who believe that the money spent by the Jacksonville Jaguars in the offseason is going to make them a much better team this year. That said, there is still that little niggle of doubt in the back of my mind, which is why I have this as my iffy pick of the week. If the Jags do gel as expected, this is a road game that they should be able to take.
