NFL fans will have to wait until the small hours of Tuesday for the highlight of week 11 – a re-run of last season’s Super Bowl between the Kansas City Chiefs and the Philadelphia Eagles.
The last of our NFL week 11 predictions comes in that match but there are two other great bets to get to first, including the best against-the-spread team in the league this season.

Spread-slaying Detroit can make light of layers’ lines again
The Lions have been making light of the bookies’ estimations of them all season long and they welcome Chicago to Motor City as the best team in the NFL against the spread. Dan Campbell’s men have covered in seven of their nine outings so far this term.
Detroit have been given a -8.5-point handicap for their week 11 assignment, which feels well within reach given four of their last six wins have come by at least 12.
The visitors’ scoring troubles should play right into our hands with the Bears registering 17 points or fewer in four of their last five games.
Take advantage of total-line setters’ short memories in Landover
The Giants 14-7 win over the Commanders on October 22nd is notable for being the only win the New York side have managed to earn in their last eight NFL matchups.
However, the game itself evidently can’t have been all that memorable for the odds compilers setting the total points line for the return fixture – it’s set a full 12.5 points higher than the 21 the sides managed between them at the MetLife Stadium.
New York average a league-low 11.8 points a game this season, while Washington average 18.5 points per home game and play opponents that limited them to seven points less than a month ago.
Over looks super-gettable in mid-season Super Bowl LVII re-run
Arguably the blockbuster scrap of the season so far lands on Monday Night Football as the Chiefs and Eagles play back last season’s Super Bowl at the Arrowhead Stadium.
The sides shared 73 points when they faced each other for the Vince Lombardi trophy but the total line is set at a far more modest 46.5 for this regular season encounter.
That’s quite a discrepancy just nine months later when this clash will surely be an occasion both sides – well-rested after week 10 byes – want to send a message to one of their main rivals for glory this season.
Patrick Mahomes and friends have averaged 27.8 points per game at home this season while Philly average 25.6 on the road. A regression to the mean will be more than enough to land our bet here, but both sides pulling out all the stops is far more likely.
