Upset Picks NFL Week 11

Who’s the pick when the Minnesota Vikings try to hold it down at home against the streaking Los Angeles Rams in a game that is now one of the most intriguing matchups on the entire Week 11 schedule?

Can Jameis Winston and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers get the road win in South Beach against Jay Cutler and the lowest-scoring team in the league when they visit the Miami Dolphins?

Last but not least, which team is going to show more fight when the Denver Broncos host the Cincinnati Bengals in a meeting between two struggling teams that have seen their postseason hopes pretty much evaporate over the last few weeks?

L.A. Rams (7-2) at Minnesota Vikings (7-2)
When: November 19, 2017, 1:00 PM ET
Where: U.S. Bank Stadium
NFL Odds: Minnesota -2.5

Analysis: The Rams have won four straight and have scored at least 33 points in each of their last three games. Minnesota has won five straight while putting at least 33 points on the board in each of their last two games. So, who’s getting the win in this matchup of identical 7-2 teams? I’m going with the Rams for the outright upset in this Week 11 tilt.

L.A. ranks first in scoring and now, fourth in points allowed. I’m thinking that’s going to be good enough to get past a Minnesota team that ranks 10th in scoring and fifth in points allowed. The high-flying Rams get it done on the road in this one because of their superior offense!

Upset Pick Week 11: L.A. Rams +2

Tampa Bay Buccaneers (3-6) at Miami Dolphins (4-5)
When: November 19, 2017, 1:00 PM ET
Where: Hard Rock Stadium
NFL Odds: Miami -3

Analysis: Both of these Florida-based teams have been severely disappointing this season after coming into the 2017 campaign with legitimate playoff hopes. Still, for me, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers are the pick if only because Miami has struggled to score points in a major way this season. The Fins have been held to 16 points or less in half of their eight games this season and Tampa Bay looked pretty good in getting past the Jets this past weekend. The Bucs are a pristine 5-0 ATS in their last five meetings against the Dolphins and Miami is just 1-2-2 ATS in their last five home dates.

Upset Pick Week 11: Tampa Bay +3

Cincinnati Bengals (3-6) at Denver Broncos (3-6)
When: November 19, 2017, 4:25 PM ET
Where: Sports Authority Field at Mile High
NFL Odds: Denver -2.5

Analysis: I don’t know why 58 percent of public bettors like the Denver Broncos in this contest, but I don’t – and that’s saying a lot with the way the Cincinnati Bengals are playing right now! Cincy has dropped two straight and three of four, but they’ve at least looked competent in defeat. Denver has dropped five straight and hasn’t scored more than 23 points in any contest. More importantly, the Broncos’ defense has given up at least 41 points in each of their last two losses. I’m thinking Von Miller and company are exhausted from constantly trying to pick up the slack for their pitiful offense. Cincinnati is 5-2 ATS in their last seven road games while Denver has failed to cover the chalk in five straight!

Upset Pick Week 11: Cincinnati +2.5
