We received some great feedback in the comments section last week regarding updating the picks on Saturday or Sunday when injuries are clearer. I will be doing that via Twitter and commenting below this article with any injury-related adjustments to the Best Bets. Thank you all for following along all season, you are one of the MANY resources used to make these selections, but mOST of the key ones can be found right here at Razzball.

Now let’s get to it! Week 11 picks for your betting pleasure.
The Ravens sorely missed Calais Campbell and Brandon Williams last week, when New England ran their defense over. As the week progresses, we will have an eye on the injury report since Derrick Henry is coming to town poised to do the same to the Pats. On the other side, Lamar Jackson looks different without Marshal Yanda in front of him. That offensive line has not lived up to expectations, and Tennessee is stout against the run. They will keep Jackson in check on the ground. On paper, this game appears to me as a field goal one way or the other. The Titans facing an injured defense and getting more than six points? Take that twice on Sunday.
Andy Dalton is on track to return for Dallas this Sunday. It’s quite laughable, but he is a significant upgrade over whoever they have been rolling out under center lately. Minnesota’s secondary has gotten better, but be honest; it couldn’t have gotten any worse. Amari Cooper and Ceedee Lamb pose bug challenges to that group, giving the Cowboys a decent edge in the matchup. The Vikings are on a short week off a grueling physical contest with their division rivals. Dallas’ offensive is nearly all healthy, boding well for Dalton and company. Their defense is talented. This spread is just too high. We side with the road dog getting more than a touchdown.
It’s not often Patrick Mahomes gets to exact revenge. This week, he will attempt to avenge his only blemish on the year, coming at the Raiders’ hands. Mitchell Schwartz will be a name to monitor this week for Kansas City, as he was deemed close contact and will need clearance to play on Sunday night. If he does go, Mahomes will have a full line in front of him, unlike in his first meeting with Las Vegas. Andy Reid is 7-3 against the spread coming off a bye (KC had a bye last week) as the Chiefs head coach. Mahomes is 21-10 ATS when he has been favored by fewer than ten points. You can lay less than a touchdown on Mahomes and Reid continuing their high level of success. Sign me up.
Happy tailing, TnPers!
