We’re continuing our regular NFL predictions with a 6/1-plus treble for Sunday’s Week 11 fixtures.
After passing the halfway stage of the regular season, the stronger teams are really beginning to establish their Super Bowl credentials.
Saints vs Falcons under 51.5 points @ Evens
There is no love lost between these rivals but unfortunately for the Saints they will be without Drew Brees for the NFC South showdown.
The quarterback is ruled out with rib and lung injuries and it is unclear whether Jameis Winston or Taysom Hill will take his place.
Either way, the loss of Brees is a blow for the Saints’ offence and a much-needed boost for the Falcons defence, which ranks 31st against the pass.
The total points spread is set at 51.5 points and under would have paid out in five of the last six meetings so looks the obvious call again for the first of our NFL predictions.
Steelers -10 points to beat Jaguars @ 87/100
Can anyone stop the Steelers? They have won their opening nine matches and have been cut to 8/1 in the NFL odds to go through the regular season unbeaten.
Last week’s win was a comfortable success, with Ben Roethlisberger throwing four touchdowns passes in a 36-10 victory over the Cincinnati Bengals.
Next up are the Jaguars, who sit bottom of the AFC South and are without a win since the opening weekend.
There is little to suggest they can cause Pittsburgh many problems and another double-digit win looks a solid pick.
Patriots -1.5 points to beat Texans @ 91/100
New England finally have some momentum and will now be looking to return to the .500 mark this weekend after recording back-to-back victories.
Cam Newton has gone three games without throwing an interception and last week’s 23-17 victory against the Baltimore Ravens was arguably their best result of the season.
Even though Newton’s confidence must be growing, the Patriots will surely look to run the ball as often as possible against the worst run defence in the NFL.
The Texans have won just two of their nine matches, losing three of their last four, and the Patriots should have no trouble winning by at least two points.
