I was back with picks this past week after a week away, and I went 1-1. I may need to stop fading the Ravens with the way Lamar Jackson is playing. Luckily, the Packers were able to keep the Panthers out of the end zone late to cover the 4.5 point spread.
I’m now 10-8 with my NFL spread picks this season. I will be using SportsInteraction.com for all of the spreads and picks below. You can see our full SIA review here. I’m going with just 2 picks again in week 11.
New Orleans Saints @ Tampa Bay Buccaneers
- New Orleans -5.5
- Tampa Bay +5.5
The Saints offense could not figure out the 1-7 Falcons last week, and ended up losing the game 26-9 at home. This should be a big wake up call to Drew Brees and the Saints that they need to improve if they are going to challenge for the Super Bowl this season.
That said, I do think this Saints offense has the ability to be among the best in the league. Brees should be able to air the ball out against this Bucs defense that is the worst in the league vs QB’s. I expect the Saints to blow out the Bucs this week to regain confidence in the offense.
The fact that the Saints lost to Atlanta last week should force players to focus up for this game against the lowly Bucs, which should translate to plenty of points on the field and for this spread to be covered fairly easily.
Play: Saints -5.5
New York Jets @ Washington Redskins
- New York +1.5
- Washington -1.5
The Jets were able to beat the Giants this past week, and at 2-7 Darnold was still talking about making a playoff push after the game. At first glance this sounds ridiculous, but the Jets do have a pretty favourable schedule coming up and it wouldn’t be crazy for them to be 6-7 after week 14 with games against the Redskins, Bengals, Dolphins and Raiders at home in that span.
I do think this Jets offense is finding a bit of a groove and they should be able to put up points in Washington.
On the flip side, the Redskins haven’t scored a touchdown in three weeks. This should be a low scoring game, but I don’t think the Redskins offense will suddenly appear, and one or two TD’s from Darnold and company should be enough to win this game.
Play: Jets +1.5
