NFL Week 11 Pick Against Spread


Mayfield has been cleared to play despite the injury and a sick shoulder, but Jared Goff is expected to be out for the Lions (0-8-1), who will start substitute Tim Boyle instead. Detroit took Pittsburgh into overtime last week and looked edgy as they finally tried to get a win. If Mayfield is even somewhat effective, and running back Nick Chubb clears Covid-19 protocols, Cleveland should cover at home. To take: Browns -10

Houston Texans vs. Tennessee Titans, 1 p.m., CBS

Line: Titans -10.5 | Total: 44.5

The Titans (8-2) have won their two games without star running back Derrick Henry, but they are still without Julio Jones (hamstring), who must miss at least two more games while in the reserve. injuried people. Ryan Tannehill, AJ Brown and the cast of replacement Titans full-backs are expected to face little resistance from the Texans (1-8), who are resting after a week off but whose defense has yielded the second most. large number of rushing yards (1,232) in the league. To take: Titans -10.5

Miami Dolphins in Jets, 1 p.m., CBS

Line: Dolphins -3 | Total: 45.5

The Dolphins (3-7) made their 2020 blitz methodology aggressive to beat Lamar Jackson last week, and that can certainly give Joe Flacco problems. Mike White threw four interceptions against the Bills, clearing up any quarterback controversy for the Jets (2-7). With Zach Wilson still recovering from a knee injury, coach Robert Saleh chose to pitch 14-season veteran Flacco against White. To take: Dolphins -3

New Orleans Saints vs. Philadelphia Eagles, 1 p.m., Fox

Line: Eagles -1.5 | Total: 45

After skipping the run earlier in the season, the Eagles (4-6) have run for over 130 yards in each of their last four games, including two 200-yard performances. This strategy might not work against the Saints (5-4), whose defense only allowed more than 100 rushing yards once. The Saints have been unbearably hard to predict, but while running back Alvin Kamara’s (knee) status isn’t clear, the defense is likely to carry New Orleans, forcing the Eagles back to lean on Jalen Hurts. To take: Saints +1.5

San Francisco 49ers to Jacksonville Jaguars, 1 p.m., Fox

Line: 49ers -7 | Total: 46

Jacksonville (2-7). The 49ers offense relies on bad direction and contact play, a challenge for a defense that still sits there.

Trevor Lawrence has oscillated during his rookie season so far and is tied for third in interceptions with nine. His mistakes could give the San Francisco offense additional possessions, a less than healthy strategy against coach Kyle Shanahan. To take: 49ers -7

Cincinnati Bengals to Las Vegas Raiders, 4:05 p.m., CBS

Line: Bengals -1 | Total: 49

What a difference a month makes. After Jon Gruden resigned his coaching position in October, the Raiders’ (5-4) efforts to remain stable and effective failed in November amid more staff shuffles – including the release of the first picks. tour of 2020 Henry Ruggs III and Damon Arnette. Las Vegas has lost its last two games and looked sloppy and disorganized doing so. Kansas City exploited the Raiders’ passing defense weaknesses last week and reported communication issues in the covers, beating them with 422 passing yards.
