NFL Week 11 picks against the spread Steven: 10-4 (72-61-3 season)
Luke: 8-6 (65-68-3 season)
Charles: 7-7 (57-76-3 season)Steven: Actually kind of disappointed with with my picks last week. Especially my Browns pick. Stop picking the Browns, Steven. I also talked myself out of going with the Colts against a Steelers team that always seems to struggle as road favorites. Lessons learned.Luke: I will salvage this turd of a season and finish over .500. I will. I know it. And if you believe something will happen, it will happen.Charles:Steven: The Titans defense seems to be playing better of late and Thursday night games always produce weird results. If this games was on a Sunday, I'd back the Steelers. But it's not, so I say Tennessee keeps it close and covers the spread.Luke: I'm not reading too much into the Steelers' almost-loss last week because, as we've seen, they're prone to some weird results now and again. That said, I think there's enough evidence there to suggest the Titans, who seems to be hitting their stride recently, will cover this.Charles: The Titans aren't bad enough to be underdogs by a touchdown and the Steelers aren't good enough (see: last week) to be favored by seven. Plus, Thursday night is weird. Taking the points.Steven: I'd rather bet on Brett Hundley than take Joe Flacco giving points on the road. As Hundley gets more comfortable, this Packers offense will at least look competent. I can't say the same for Baltimore. Give me the points.Luke: Picking this Ravens team to win outright is a scary proposition, but two points just isn't enough. I just don't think the Packers have enough to keep it that close.Charles: I have no clue what to do here. I still don't believe in Brett Hundley and I just think Baltimore's D is enough of a factor to give him a hard time. I'll go with the road favorites.Steven: The Bears locker room has all but given up on John Fox. The defense will keep it close for most of the game but then the Lions will pull away late like they did last week against the Browns. Detroit.Luke: The Bears are starting to get figured out recently. They've been good at grinding out wins against iffy teams, but they won't be able to keep up with the Lions.Charles: Man, there are some tough games to pick this week. Like this one: The Bears can cover spreads like this at home even without much of a passing game and their defense is good enough. I keep going back and forth, but after last week's loss to Brett Hundley, I have to back Matty Stafford.Steven: The Giants might be the worst team in football right now. Chiefs.Luke: Ugh. The Giants are awful. I guess I'll take the points simply because 11 is SO MANY to be getting at home, but to be honest, I'll be furious at myself if (when?) the Chiefs blow them out easily.Charles: Although no one should believe in the Chiefs' defense, I do believe in the Giants giving up big games to tight ends every week. And Travis Kelce happens to be an elite tight end. Final score: Chiefs 40, Giants 20Steven: I'm really high on this Saints team but the Redskins don't get blown out. New Orleans won't have as much success on the ground as it did a week ago and Washington will stick within a touchdown. Take the points.Luke: The Saints are rolling so hot right now, but they're due for a slip-up at some point sooner rather than later. Take the points this week.Charles: If the Skins could cover against the Seahawks on the road, they can cover against the Saints too. They'll lose this game, but by less then eight.Steven: Wade Phillips has the Rams defense playing at a high level and Case Keenum is due for a bad game. I'll take the Rams. Bonus prediction: Teddy Bridgewater gets on the field in this one.Luke: Ohhh, this is tough. Awesome offense against awesome defense. Hmm. I think I'll ride with the Rams, simply because they have the potential to put someKelvin Benjamin Authentic Jerseyquick points on the board that the Vikings simply won't be able to match.Charles: I have no idea what to do here. Zero. I have arguments for both sides for days, and I'm pumped for what should be one of the week's best games. I'll put my faith in the home team with the better defense.Steven: Oh man. I just said at the top of this post that I was done picking the Browns, but, you know what? I'm doing it. Myles Garrett and Emmanuel Ogbah have led a good run defense, and I don't trust Blake Bortles on the road. Browns lose a close one but cover.Luke: Jags. That is all.Charles: What do the Jags do well? Run the ball. What do the Browns do surprisingly well? Stop the run (they're fourth in the NFL in run defense). Even while facing the Jags legit defense, I'll take the points in a low-scoring affair.Steven:Sean McDermott made this a no-brainer when he decided to bench Tyrod Taylor for Nathan Peterman. Philip Rivers will play and dice up Buffalo's defense.Luke: Bills are setting about dismantling a surprisingly good season for no reason, so I'm happy to ride with the Chargers.Charles: If Philip Rivers plays, I'll take the Chargers all day with Nathan Peterman making his first start. If he doesn't play, I guess I'll take the points and assuming the Chargers' league-worst rushing defense gives up a big day to LeSean McCoy.Steven: The Patriots are hitting their stride and the Raiders weren't exactly convincing against a bad Dolphins team the last time we saw them. Lay the points.Luke: Never bet against Belichick.Charles: The Pats' offense might put up 45 points. They might give up 39 though. I'll take the points thanks to a backdoor cover.Steven: Woof, this is bad game. Give me the better quarterback and the points, I guess.Luke: I don't care how good the defense is. I'm not going to swallow points with Brock Osweiler. Just won't do it.Charles: Another tough one with both teams struggling. My faith in the Bengals pass D and in the fact that Andy Dalton > Brock Osweiler means I'll take the Bengals.Steven:HAHAHAHAHAHAHHAHAEagles.Luke: Weird result last week, but I'll take the home underdogs. Dallas will bounce back from this.Charles: The Eagles are Super Bowl contenders and their front seven will neutralize the running attack that will miss the heck out of Ezekiel Elliott. Fly, Eagles, Fly.Steven: Earl Thomas is back, but the Seahawks could be without Kam Chancellor and will be without Richard Sherman. That concerns me enough to take the points, although I wouldn't be surprised if the Seahawks make this one a laugher.Luke: The Falcons on the road are a very different proposition than the one that beat Dallas at home - especially against Seattle's D - but this offense is so slow moving that I don't like picking them to cover. Atlanta will muster up enough points to cover.Charles: The Falcons aren't as good as they looked last week. I'll take the Hawks here.Steven: Give me the Dolphins. I know they looked bad last Monday, but Tampa Bay won't be able to run like Carolina did. Also, do you really feel comfortable betting on Ryan Fitzpatrick? I don't.Luke: Sad times in Tampa if they're getting Pick 'ems against Miami. I guess I'll ride with the BucsCharles: The Dolphins were embarrassed on Monday by the Panthers, but these Bucs are certainly not the Panthers. Bank on a solid Jay Cutler day - stop laughing,Torrey Smith Authentic Jerseyit'll happen - and take the Phins.Steven: Um, the Cardinals, I guess. I don't care. AsLuke Kuechly Authentic Jerseylong as I don't have to watch this game.Luke: What a bore of a game. Give me the Cardinals. Whatever.Charles: Blaine Gabbert vs. Tom Savage!! UGHHHHHHHHHHHHH. I will pick neither team and skip this altogether. [Listens to earpiece] We can't do that? Fine. The Cardinals are slightly better, with Patrick Peterson shutting down DeAndre Hopkins.MORE:6 under-the-radar fantasy football pickups that could win you a titleMike Golic nearly retired when he found out 'Mike &Devin Funchess Authentic JerseyMike' was endingBehold, an NFL Network reporter's epic burn to a Twitter trollMike Tyson KO'd Jimmy Kimmel with an outrageously rude 'mean tweet'Nike Greg Olsen Jersey On Sale Mike Adams Jersey Russell Shepard Jersey Corn Elder Jersey David Mayo Jersey Greg Olsen Jersey Cheap Nike Torrey Smith Jersey On Sale Matt Kalil Jersey Teddy Williams Jersey Mike Remmers White Elite Jersey Kony Ealy Jersey Andrew Norwell Jersey Devin Funchess White Elite Jersey Nike Julius Peppers Jersey On Sale Cole Luke Jersey Shaq Thompson Jersey Paul Soliai Jersey Captain Munnerlyn Jersey James Bradberry Jersey
