Week 10 saw the most thrilling weekend of the season with key victories for the Cowboys and Steelers solidifying their position at the head of the NFC. The best of the week 11 betting opportunities summarised below
Miami Dolphins at LA Rams
The Dolphins have won 4 in a row to climb to a winning record and second place in the AFC East. The change in offensive strategy to emphasise the running game behind a retooled offensive line is paying dividends as it takes the game out of the hands of Ryan Tannehill and a more conservative style is producing results
The Rams have won of the worst offenses in the league, have twice won games this season without scoring a touchdown and now have turned to number one draft pick quarterback Jared Goff to help fire this stagnant unit, and in particular help a running game stymied by the absence of big play threats so defenses can load up to stop the run. There are likely to be growing pains with Goff though, starting this weekend against Suh, Wake and co in the Dolphins pass rush.
The Dolphins -1.5 at 10/11 with Bet365 is a firm bet here
Tennessee Titans at Indianapolis Colts
An AFC South clash this weekend as the 5-5 Titans travel to the 4-5 Colts. The Titans are developing nicely, have a power running game behind a very good offensive line and Mariota can now make defenses pay. Whilst the Titans are not the finished article yet, two first round draft picks next year should see them in contention for the play-offs soon
The brilliance of Andrew Luck sees the Colts through some games. The defense is slow and lacks talent while his offensive line is inconsistent at best. The Titans are +3 on the handicap at Evens with Bet365. I have them as favourites for the game and the better team
Green Bay Packers at Washington Redskins
In a very tough NFC East this year the Redskins are competitive, recovering from losign their first two games to a 5-3-1 record behind Kirk Cousins and his receivers and an under-rated defense. Meanwhile this season has been a struggle for Aaron Rdgers and the packers, with no running game, problems at receiver and the franchise looking like it is entering a rebuilding stage.
The Packers are down to 3rd place in the NFC North with a 4-5 record and the Redskins should be favoured -2.5 on the handicap spread at 10/11 with Bet365
