Week 11 NFL Picks
After a 1-2 week, my record stands at 16-10-1. Time to end my mini cold streak with 3 winners this week.
Lions +6.5 over Cowboys
Detroit has a ridiculously long road losing streak, but this is a fade on Dallas instead of a ringing endorsement of the Lions. Dallas should not be a touchdown favorite on anyone at this point. Calvin Johnson should make enough plays to keep this close, and Dallas has no answer for Ndamukong Suh.
Detroit 24, Dallas 21
San Diego -9.5 over Denver
Coming off a bye, the Chargers are due for a dominant performance. Offensively and defensively, San Diego has great numbers. Denver can throw the ball, but on the road, their defense will get torched. Look for Philip Rivers to put up a big number.
Chargers 38, Broncos 24
Oakland +7.5 over Pittsburgh
The Steelers have no offensive line, and Oakland is hot. The bye is a good thing for the Raiders, who needed to get Nnamdi Asomugha, Louis Murphy, and Zach Miller all healthy. The Raiders won this matchup last year and should have a chance this year. At the very least, they will keep it within the number.
Steelers 20, Raiders 17
