Here we are once again as Week 11 is about to get started. The Elldee Sports Team is cranking up the formula machine early this week and getting the Elldee Sports Best Bets out there for two reasons. Number one is the fact that after our first losing week of Best Bets, I simply can’t wait to get that taste out of my mouth! Secondly, I like the Thursday night game a lot.
Green Bay @ Seattle (-2.5)
Carolina (-4) @ Detroit
Pittsburgh (-6) @ Jacksonville
Philadelphia @ New Orleans (-8)
Green Bay is traveling across the country to match up with the Seattle Seahawks on a short week while Seattle gets to wait at home. If that isn’t enough, the Seahawks boast one of the toughest stadiums to play at. If that still isn’t enough, the formula calls for a win anyways!
The Carolina Panthers head out for another road game after being dismantled in Pittsburgh last week. One difference, this Detroit team isn’t Pittsburgh. Look for the Panther defense to stiffen up against the Lions and their passing attack while the offense pounds the ball on the ground and makes use of timely deep passes.
Pittsburgh has caught fire the last few weeks and the Jaguars have wilted under the pressure. I wouldn’t say Jacksonville has necessarily wilted but they arent the same team without a power rushing attack. Fournette is supposed to be back this week but even with him, the Steelers have been playing so well, I don’t think the Jags can hang.
Philadelphia appears to have a Superbowl hangover. Compound that with the fact that the Eagles have been bitten by the injury bug and the outcome is a 4-5 record through the first half of the season. New Orleans has been toying with teams and the Philly secondary should pose no threat as the Saints roll.
There you have it, the top picks for the week. I fully expect a complete turnaround from last week’s poor showing. Follow along and be amazed!
