The Daily Dollar: NFL Best Bets for Week 11 (11/21)by Sam Schneider November 21, 2021 0 comments
It’s great to have my fine, feathered friends back for Week 11 of the Daily Dollar. Vegas completely blew some lines this week, and we are gonna take advantage of those misgivings. Let’s make some money.
You can find the Daily Dollar throughout the NFL season here.
Green Bay Packers -1 (-110) vs Minnesota Vikings
Broken record take of the day: Las Vegas cannot get the line for the Green Bay Packers right, week in and week out. Since their drubbing by New Orleans in Week 1, the defense is finally getting come credit, allowing just 15 points per game. Their lone loss in those contests was an ugly 13-7 affair against the Kansas City Chiefs when they were without Aaron Rodgers. They get a Vikings squad giving up over 23 points every week and has an inconsistent offense. This is an absolute no-brainer, and possibly the easiest win of the week. The Packers roll on as one of the NFC’s Super Bowl favorites.
Book it: Packers -1 (-110)
Baltimore Ravens -5 (-110) at Chicago Bears
There are some that say Justin Fields is the next Lamar Jackson. Maybe, but not in 2021. Fields has looked abhorrent under center for the Chicago, save for some undesigned run plays that turned into big games, In the running category, Jackson is still the undisputed champion of the current NFL landscape with 639 yards rushing en route to his third-straight 1,000 yard rushing season. The Bears’ “smoke and mirrors” act is coming to an end as Baltimore marches into Soldier Field and absolutely obliterates Chicago on their home turf. Bonus points for anyone who has ‘Matt Nagy gets fired after week 11’ on their Bingo card.
Book it: Ravens -5 (-110)
Cincinnati Bengals at Las Vegas Raiders o50.5 (-110)
Let’s keep this really simple. Regardless of which team you may root for, bettors are looking at numbers, and you should be, too. The Bengals with Joe Mixon are still ranked 24th in the NFL in rushing, Zac Taylor would prefer to throw the ball with future star Joe Burrow than keep it on the ground,
The Raiders rank 28th in rushing, It’s been the Derek Carr show from the jump, so why switch it up against a team susceptible to the long ball. Desean Jackson is likely to blow by Eli Apple on at least one route.
At the end of the day, this should be one of the more entertaining games on the slate. Both defenses have had flashes of brilliance and plenty of struggles through the first half of the season, leading to a shootout in Sin City. The total does not stand a chance in this contest.
Book it: Bengals/Raiders over 50.5 points
Bonus bet: Just take the Bills minus a million, for crying out loud.
