Week 11 of the NFL season is coming up this weekend, and that means that we are starting to get into the thick of the fight for playoff spots and NFL Betting Predictions. The Detroit Lions are looking at a potential Wild Card spot this season and will be looking to keep their challenge alive with a rivalry game against the Chicago Bears.

The Green Bay Packers finally got a win with backup QB Brett Hundley under center and will look to keep it rolling at home to the Baltimore Ravens. The Cardinals and Texans are both heading in the wrong direction, and really need a win to keep their season alive.

Detroit Lions vs Chicago Bears

Date/Time: November 19, 2017, 1:00 PM ET
Location: Soldier Field, Chicago Illinois
Odds: Lions -3

The Lions are back over .500 after recording their second straight win last weekend. Detroit could still conceivably run down the Minnesota Vikings in the NFC North, but they are probably more realistically looking at a Wild Card spot. Going on the road this weekend is not going to be an issue, as they are 3-1 away from home this season. They are also 7-1 SU in their last 8 meetings with Chicago.

Top Betting Predictions for NFL Week 11

The Bears have been, for the most part, fairly competitive this season, but they have no shot at the postseason and are now committed to getting rookie QB Mitch Trubsiky some playing experience. While the Bears are just 3-10 SU in their last 13 games, they have covered the spread in 4 of their last 5 games. The Lions are a 3-point favorite, and I like them to win and cover here, albeit only just. I also like the OVER 41.

Game Prediction: Detroit Lions 24 Chicago Bears 20

 

Baltimore Ravens vs Green Bay Packers

Date/Time: November 19, 2017, 1:00 PM ET
Location: Lambeau Field, Green Bay, Wisconsin
Odds: Ravens -3

The playoffs are once again beginning to look like a longshot for the Ravens, and that may well mean the end of the road for coach Harbaugh. Baltimore needs this win to get back to .500 in the year but is just 1-5 SU versus the Packers. The Ravens are 2-5 SU in their last 7 and are also just 2-4-1 ATS in those games.

The Packers season looked to be killed off with the loss of Aaron Rodgers, but Brett Hundley got his first win at QB last weekend, and you get the sense that the win may serve as a confidence builder for this group. The Packers are always good at home and are 6-3 ATS in their last 9 games at Lambeau Field. The Ravens will go on the road as a slight 2-point favorite, and I think they may be in trouble here. I like the Packers to win, and I like this one to go OVER the 39-point total.

Game Prediction: Baltimore Ravens 20 Green Bay Packers 21

Arizona Cardinals vs Houston Texans

Date/Time: November 19, 2017, 1:00 PM ET
Location: NRG Stadium, Houston, Texas
Odds: Cardinals -1.5

Of these two teams, it is the Cardinals who still have a shot, albeit a very slim one, at the postseason. The Cards are at 4-5 in the year but are seeing the injuries starting to pile up in a big way. The offense has gone off the rails due to those losses, and they have now only covered in 1 of their last 5 road games. The Houston Texans were a team on the rise until rookie QB DeShaun Watson went down with a season-ending injury.

They are now just 3-6 on the season, and almost certainly out of the playoff conversation. The good news is that the Texans are 10-4 in their last 14 home games. The injuries to both teams have this game off the board in most places, but keeping checking back in, as the odds will go live later in the week.

Game Prediction: Arizona Cardinals 17 Houston Texans 20
