Week 11 in the NFL is upon us, and that means another week of pro football betting. BetMGM has the latest NFL betting odds out, and a few NFL money lines catch my eye.
Which ones are they? Here are four that you should look at before placing your bets.
4. Jacksonville Jaguars (+230)
This bet is for the bold bettors because backing the 2-7 Jaguars is risky. However, I think this is excellent value, especially with the 49ers coming off their blowout win against the Rams.
San Francisco has not proven that they are a consistent team, and now they have to travel to the east coast just six days after getting their biggest win of the season.
One other thing to watch is that Jaguars QB Trevor Lawrence is slowly improving. He has only thrown two interceptions in his last six games, and Jacksonville faces a team that is almost as bad in turnover margin.
If Lawrence keeps up his streak of protecting the football, the Jaguars could steal one in Week 11.
3. New York Jets (+140)
What makes this an exciting money line for me is that the Jets have been known to pull off home upsets this year, with victories over the Titans and Bengals. Now, they face a division rival coming off of their biggest win of the season against the Ravens.
The Dolphins seem to be in a similar spot as the 49ers, and they may get caught looking ahead of the Jets here. But, admittedly, there are question marks for who the Jets’ QB will be in this game.
But I am skeptical that the Dolphins have the offense to be road favorites, so I am willing to take my chances on the Jets at home.
2. New Orleans Saints (+100)
The Saints vs. Eagles game is a tight spread this week, with Philadelphia being home favorites by just one and a half points. That is why I believe that if you like the Saints in this game, you may as well take the money line for even money rather than putting up the juice at -110 odds on the spread.
I think New Orleans will come into this game angry, with Sean Payton not being happy about the officiating of their last game.
The Saints’ defense has proven they are for real, holding the Titans to just 23 points (though some would say seven of those were questionable) and allowing less than 20 points per game on the season.
Plus, Philadelphia is going to have their hands full trying to run the ball. They have the third-best rushing offense, but the Saints have the NFL’s best rushing defense. New Orleans gives up about half of the rushing yards that Philadelphia averages in a game.
If their defense shows up here, I expect the Saints to come out on top.
1. Dallas Cowboys (+120)
Admittedly, this is a more challenging game to read than others this week because I don’t know which Chiefs team will show up. The one that beat the Raiders 41-14 last week, or the one that was struggling for most of this season?
Dallas is an underdog by less than a field goal at Arrowhead, and they are the most talented team with a positive money line on the board this week.
Even if the Chiefs are back, the Cowboys have the offense to keep up with them. They lead the NFL in total yards per game (433.9) and points per game (31.6).
Kansas City’s defense has been below average this year, so unless they get another outstanding performance from the offense, I think you are getting excellent value with Dallas at +120.
