Okay BetUS NFL online betting nation, can the reeling Philadelphia Eagles pull off the big upset over the Cleveland Browns to keep their playoff hopes alive in the ugly NFC East? Will Washington take care of business at home in their Week 11 matchup against the Cincinnati Bengals? Last, but not least, can Aaron Rodgers and the Green Bay Packers get the road win to extend their winning ways against Philip Rivers and the Indianapolis Colts?
With three highly intriguing Week 11 interconference matchups on tap this coming weekend, let’s find out where the best sportsbook betting value lies against the Week 11 NFL odds in all three contests.
Philadelphia Eagles (3-5-1) at Cleveland Browns (6-3)
When: Sunday, 1 p.m. ET
Where: FirstEnergy Stadium, Cleveland, OH
NFL Odds: Cleveland -3½ (Approximate
Total: 46½ (approximate)
The Eagles had their two-game winning streak snapped in an embarrassing 27-17 road loss against the Giants while never coming close to covering the spread as a 5-point road favorite. Quarterback Carson Wentz went 21-for-37 for 208 yards and while he avoided tossing an interception for the second time this season, he also failed to throw a touchdown pass. Philadelphia’s defense gave up one rushing score to quarterback Daniel Jones and two to running back Wayne Gallman.
Cleveland got back in the win column by getting past Houston 10-7 in an ugly affair. While quarterback Baker Mayfield completed 12 passes for the second straight game, running backs Nick Chubb (126 yards, 1 TD) and Kareem Hunt (104 yards) combined to become the first pair of Browns running backs to top the century mark in the same game since 1966. Still, the Browns failed to cover the chalk as a 4.5-point home favorite and have been one of the coldest ATS teams in the league.
While I’m not fond of Mayfield and I believe he may not be the starter in Cleveland long after this season, the Browns are the pick to take care of business at home in this Week 11 interconference affair. The Eagles have gone 2-5 ATS in their last seven games against a team with a winning record and 1-6 ATS in their last 7 games following a straight-up loss.
The Browns are 4-1 ATS in their last 5 home games against a team with a losing road record while the home team in this rivalry has gone a perfect 5-0 ATS in the last five meetings. This game is going to be ugly, but the Browns are the pick to get it done!
Pick: Cleveland 27 Philadelphia 21

Cincinnati Bengals (2-6-1) at Washington Football Team (2-7)
When: Sunday, 1 p.m. ET
Where: FedExField, Landover, MD
NFL Odds: Washington -1 (approximate)
Cincinnati got completely manhandled 36-10 against Pittsburgh on Sunday while never coming close to covering the spread as a 6.5-point road underdog. Rookie quarterback Joe Burrow was harassed into a 21-for-40 passing day for 213 yards with one touchdown, but the No. 1 overall pick in this year’s NFL Draft didn’t throw an interception for the second straight game after tossing one in three straight prior to his past two.
Washington put up a good effort but suffered its second consecutive three-point loss by falling to Detroit 30-27 on Sunday while coming up just short of covering the spread as a 2.5-point road dog. Quarterback Alex Smith passed for a stupendous 390 yards but failed to throw a TD pass. Running back Antonio Gibson did score a pair of rushing touchdowns, but it wasn’t enough.

I’m impressed with Burrow but Washington is due for a win, seeing as how each of their last three losses has come by an agonizing three points or less. Cincinnati has the better offense and the best quarterback but Washington’s defense is the only unit in this matchup that is ranked inside the Top 15. I know the Bengals are 6-0 ATS in their last 6 games following a straight-up loss, but I say toss that trend to the side for this matchup. Washington is desperate, playing at home – and again – due for a confidence-boosting win!
Pick: Washington 28 Cincinnati 24
Okay NFL betting nation. Quick question. Will the Pittsburgh Steelers go undefeated in 2020?
Green Bay Packers (7-2) at Indianapolis Colts (6-3)
When: Sunday, 4:25 p.m. ET
Where: Lucas Oil Stadium, Indianapolis, IN
NFL Odds: Indianapolis -1½ (approximate)
Total: 51 (approximate)
Green Bay got past Jacksonville last weekend, but the Packers definitely didn’t look like world-beaters in their 24-20 home win while never coming close to covering the spread as a whopping 13.5-point home favorite. Aaron Rodgers passed for 325 yards with two touchdowns and one interception, but the Week 11 affair was close throughout as Jacksonville went into the fourth quarter tied at 17 all.
Indianapolis won for the third time in four games by smacking Tennessee around en route to a commanding 34-17 road win while covering the spread as a 1-point favorite. Philip Rivers passed for 308 yards with one touchdown and no picks while running back Nyheim Hines added 115 yards from scrimmage and one rushing and receiving touchdown in the win.
The Packers have dropped two of their last five, not to mention their lackluster effort in their win over Jacksonville. Indianapolis leads the league in total defense while ranking a stellar second against the pass, third against the run and fourth in points allowed (19.7 ppg).
The Home team in this rivalry has gone 4-1 ATS in their last 5 meetings and the Colts are 13-5 ATS in their last 18 games against a team with a winning record. I like Indy to take care of business at home in this huge Week 11 interconference clash!
Pick: Indianapolis 27 Green Bay 21
