Lions at Panthers / Panthers -3
I fully expect the Carolina Panthers to be coming off a loss heading into this Week 11 game. I also expect the Detroit Lions will win or lose an ugly game in Week 10 against the Washington Football Team. The Lions on the road are often a team that gets faded, but the status of Kenny Golladay is up in the air as of right now. Golladay will move the line, and I actually expect Golladay to play in Week 11. That will provide some value on the dog if this game goes to +3.5, especially if the Lions lose an ugly game in Week 10. So, we wait on this line and we watch the Lions' result. We then fire on +3.5 if the line gets there.
Cowboys at Vikings / Cowboys +9
The Dallas Cowboys simply can’t get any more bad news heading into this game, can they? They also can’t look bad in Week 10, which will have the public thinking Dallas didn’t do anything to hurt their stock any further while on a bye week. But Week 11 will be another week in which the Dallas offense will either get Dalton back or get another week of Garrett Gilbert under center, who actually looked "ok" in his first game as an NFL starting quarterback. Plus, all the Dallas weapons and the Cowboys' defense can only get healthier. This line looks to be too high. I say it closes Dallas +8 or +7.5. Grab the +9 right now.
Chiefs at Raiders / Chiefs -7.5
The Kansas City Chiefs are on a bye in Week 10 and that rest will have the bettors looking at them first and foremost in Week 11. The Las Vegas Raiders, on the other hand, can only hurt themselves here on Sunday with a loss to the Denver Broncos or with a string of injuries on either side of the football. Patrick Mahomes on the road has been rock solid since he started his stellar run in the NFL, and the big talking point will be if Lock & Co can throw for a ton of yards, then what can Mahomes and Tyreek Hill do? This line will close at -8.5 or -9 in favor of Kansas City. Don't forget it's a revenge game from Week 5, too
