Right from the off, we all tend to talk about the playoffs and which teams will make it in. The reality, though, is that it’s a conversation we probably shouldn’t be having until much later in the season. As we head into Week 11 of the NFL season, now seems like a good time to start having the playoff conversation. We have seen enough out of each team to get an idea of how they might play throughout the rest of the season, making it easier to make those bold postseason predictions. That said, some of the early favorites are having their issues, which includes the Baltimore Ravens, who have hit a bit of a sticky patch. They will be looking to snap out of that minor slump with a win on the road in Chicago this weekend. They are in as a 6-point favorite, with the O/U set at 45. It’s time we take a look at our NFL Betting analysis for the upcoming match between the Baltimore Ravens and the Chicago Bears.

Why bet on the Baltimore Ravens
At this stage of the season, 6-3 is not a bad record, as is a spot atop the AFC North. For the Ravens, though, getting to that point has been a bit of a slog. They have had to come back from double-digit deficits far too often and it has begun to catch up with them, as they have now lost 2 of their last 3 games. It is also worth noting that 2 of their 3 losses this season have come on the road, so expecting them to waltz into Chicago and come away with an easy win is perhaps not the best thought. The Ravens are 2-4 SU in their last 6 games versus the Bears, but on the flipside, they have made a habit of covering the spread versus Chicago, going 6-3 ATS in their last 9 meetings. The UNDER has hit in 6 of the last 7 road games for Baltimore.
Why bet on the Chicago Bears
When you choose to roll the dice with a rookie QB under center, there is always the possibility that you are in for a long season. Justin Fields has not been terrible by any stretch of the imagination, and it has become clear that this team needs much more than a competent starting QB. Chicago comes into Week 11 of the season with a 3-6 record and a 4-game losing skid that they are looking to snap out of sooner rather than later. They played the Steelers close in their last outing before the bye week and can take some positives from that. Their performance against the Steelers should perhaps not be so surprising given that they are 7-1 ATS in their last 8 games versus teams from the AFC North. In terms of the point total, the UNDER has hit in 12 of the last 17 that Chicago has played at home.
Expert Pick and Final Score Prediction
Despite not playing great over the past few weeks, you do get the feeling that the Ravens are ready for a breakout game. I think they might just get it in this one, which is why I am on them to win and cover the spread.
