Over/Under Picks NFL Week 11

Over/Under Picks NFL Week 11

Oakland Raiders at Arizona Cardinals
When: Sunday, Nov. 18 at 8:20 pm ET
Where: State Farm Stadium, Glendale, AZ
Over/Under: 41

Analysis: Neither one of these teams should do much in the scoring department. Arizona averages 13.8 points per. That ranks 31st in the NFL. The Cardinals allow 25 points per. That seems like a lot.

It’s not when you put it into perspective. Arizona battled Kansas City in Week 10. The Chiefs, who usually score 35 points per game, only put 26 onto the Cardinals. Arizona’s defense actually played well in defeat.

Oakland’s offense might not score more than 6 points against Arizona on Sunday. The Raiders only average 16.3 points per. Opponents can score against Oakland, but the Cardinals prefers to rush the football.

This one’s going under.

Pick: Under

Minnesota Vikings at Chicago Bears
When: Sunday, Nov. 18 at 8:20 pm ET
Where: Soldier Field, Chicago, IL
Over/Under: 45.5

Analysis: At first glance, this looks like an under game. Minnesota and Chicago play in the former black and blue division, the NFC North. Both teams have good defenses. The Vikings’ ranked first in the NFL last season while the Bears’ start one of the top linebackers in the NFL in Khalil Mack.

A closer look reveals that both these teams pick up the pace on offense. Minnesota scores close to 25 points per. Chicago averages 30 points per and has scored 40 or more twice this season.

Bears and Vikings should crash right through this total.

Pick: Over

Kansas City Chiefs vs. Los Angeles Rams
When: Monday, Nov. 19 at 8:15 pm ET
Where: Estadio Azteca, Mexico City, MX
Over/Under: 63.5

Analysis: The total’s gone up 4 points since opening at 59.5. That’s crazy considering that Kansas City only scored 26 points in the win over the Arizona Cardinals in Week 10.

Both teams do have excellent offenses. But, both teams also have smart coaches. Neither Rams’ coach Sean McVay, nor Chiefs’ coach Andy Reid will put his defense in trouble by speeding up the game. Both have excellent rushing attacks and close to perfect quarterbacks.

This could end up a strategy game where both coaches try to one-up the other in time of possession. I see this hyped battle going under.

Pick: Under
