Brandon's Best Bets Week 11
Alright readers so last week we suffered our first loss as we went 1-2, with the Patriots
struggling in New York and the Saints defense and offense imploding. That leaves us with a
total of 5-3-1 where if you bet an average of 100$ each game you would be up about $140 for a total of $1,040. Let’s try and get back on track this week! All spreads made using Bovada.
Minnesota Vikings (pick em) vs. Green Bay Packers
This game should be rewarding the Packers some points. This is in windy Minnesota where the Vikings are used to playing in adverse conditions as they wait for their new stadium. This is a team predicated on tough defense and a strong running game, something the Packers are struggling to find since Eddie Lacy began to look like one of us writers out there. Rodgers doesn’t trust his receiving options and the Vikings will do a good job of containing him, look for the Vikings to claim the NFC North with a victory.
Oakland Raiders -1 at Detroit Lions
I’ve feel the narrative of “how bad” the Lions are has been overblown all year, but they should still be getting more than one point versus Derek Carr’s Raiders.
When you have a team you feel is significantly better and is only getting -1 take them.
Buffalo Bills -7 1/2 at New England Patriots
I’m crazy, I know, but those injuries have to start adding up for the Patriots don’t they? They laid a pretty big beat down on the Bills the first time and I expect them to win but I’ve never seen Rex Ryan get blown out by the Patriots two times in one season. It always tends to be a close game. I think this week it is good to feel comfortable with the 7 ½ points.
Good luck out there, go Jets and Eagles!
