It has been a season of surprises in the NFL, which is why we at a point where no clear Super Bowl favorite has emerged. Sure, the Tennessee Titans and the New England Patriots are hot at the moment, but given what we have seen this season, can we really be sure that those hot streaks will last? This, though, is very often the part of the season where we begin to see teams get on a roll as we head closer to the playoffs. The task now is to try and figure out which team or teams will emerge from the pack and make a deep run this season. This is all talk for another date, as there is still a lot of football to be played before we get to that point. Right now, we are looking ahead to Week 11 and our O/U picks for the weekend so you can place your bets against the NFL Betting Odds.
2021 Season Week 11 Over/Under Picks | NFL Betting
Detroit Lions at Cleveland Browns (UNDER 44 ½)
There were a lot of fans and pundits who believed that the Detroit Lions were destined to go 0-17 this season, and while they still might not win a game, they did manage to get a tie in a defensive struggle with the Pittsburgh Steelers this past weekend. The Cleveland Browns saw their chances of making the playoffs take a hit in Week 10 after getting hammered 45-7 by the New England Patriots. The Browns have now lost 2 of their last 3 to fall to 5-5 on the season. The good news is that the AFC North is proving to be a whole lot tighter than expected, but they still need this game. The Lions offense has not been firing, which is why they have seen 6 of their last 7 games fall UNDER the point total. The UNDER has also hit in each of Cleveland’s last 5 games in Week 11.
Houston Texans at Tennessee Titans (UNDER 44 ½)
With the whole DeShaun Watson saga in Houston, the Texans came into the season with a problem at the QB position. The reality is, though, that the Texans would probably still be struggling, although perhaps not as badly as the offense is right now. This is an offense that has been held to single digits in 4 of their last 6 games, so don’t expect a sudden explosive outburst from this group. The Titans are on a roll at the moment and have won 6 straight games coming into this weekend. They are averaging around 31 PPG during that run, and they probably won’t need anywhere near that total to get the win here. In the last 5 visits to Tennessee, the Texans have seen the UNDER hit 4 times.
New Orleans Saints at Philadelphia Eagles (OVER 43 ½)
We are at the stage of the season where it’s time to actually start paying attention to the playoff races in both conferences. Things are about as tight as it gets at the moment, with the standings seeming to change on a weekly basis. As it stands now, the Saints are in a playoff spot in the NFC, while the Eagles are sitting below the line. The Saints are in a slump and have lost a pair of consecutive tight games, while Philly has won 2 of their last 3. The OVER is trending all over the place with these two, including 5 of the last 6 Saints games going that way. Furthermore, the OVER has hit in 4 of the last 5 trips that the Saints have taken to Philadelphia.
