Free Prediction and Pick

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers would love to grab a game in the standings. Not only could they make ground in teh divisional play, but a win for Tampa Bay would go along way towards a wildcard spot. The Falcons with a win could nearly wrap up the NFC South; as they would move to four games up. The Falcons need to find a way to get off to a good start on the road. Look for this game to be tight throughout, but in the end, the veteran team in Atlanta will come away with a win.

Prediction: Atlanta Falcons 27-24

The Atlanta Falcons are just a single point favorite over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. It will depend alot on whether the Buccaneers can slow down the high powered Atlanta offense. The Falcons will have to do a better job taking care of the ball if they want to beat Tampa Bay. The five turnovers for Atlanta was a cause of concern for the staff. We like the Atlanta Falcons -1 in this game over Tampa Bay.

Pick: Atlanta Falcons -1

In what should be an excellent game in the National Football League – the Indianapolis Colts will head to Foxboro to take on the New England Patriots. if the end of the regular season was right now – both of these teams would make the postseason out of the AFC. The Colts are leading the wildcard spot with a 6-3 record. Indianapolis is coming off a win over the Jacksonville Jaguars. New England has a two game lead in the AFC East; and beat the Buffalo Bills on Sunday.

The New England Patriots continue to have one of the best quarterbacks in all of the NFL. Tom Brady has thrown for 284.3 yards per game, and led the Patriots to nearly 300 points on the season. Steven Ridley has been a diamond in the rough for New England, as he has rushed for 814 yards and 6 touchdowns.

The Patriots are preparing for two road games; at the New York Jets and Miami Dolphins within the next two weekends.

Odds and Sports Betting Line

  • Indianapolis Colts +9.5
  • New England Patriots -9.5

Free Prediction and Pick

The New England Patriots would love nothing more than to show the Colts that they just are not ready for the primetime. These two teams have played many big games; when Peyton Manning was the Colts quarterback. Tom Brady will come out very focused for this game against the Colts. Look for Brady to throw the ball all over the field and come away with a very easy win over the Colts. We like New England to win this game by double digits.

Prediction: New England Patriots 34-14

New England is just shy of a double digit favorite in this game. The Patriots haved played several close games this season. Look for the Patriots to be focused enough that they cannot let Indianapolis stick around in this game. Look for New England to put points on the board in a hurry and come away with a win, and easily cover the spread.

Pick: New England Patriots -9.5

NFL Week 11 Betting: Chicago Bears @ San Francisco 49ers Pick and Prediction

On Monday Night Football in Week 11 – the Chicago Bears will head out west and take on the San Francisco 49ers. This game is a battle between two divisional leaders – as the Bears lead the NFC North and the 49ers are in the lead atop the NFC West. The Bears are coming off a loss to the Houston Texans, while the 49ers played in a tie against the St. Louis Rams at home. These two teams are both seeking a postseason spot out of the NFC.

The San Francisco 49ers are looking into whether their quarterback Alex Smith can play in this game or not. Smith left the game against the Rams in the first half with a concussion. In the recent game against the Rams, the 49ers had a chance to win it, but David Akers missed a field goal. San Francisco was fortunate to not be beat on several occassions, and settled with the tie. Frank Gore, the running back from San Francisco has rushed for 753 yards and 5 touchdowns through 9 games. The 49ers play two straight road games after this; at San Francisco and St. Louis.

The Chicago Bears are also questionable whether their quarterback Jay Cutler will play or not. Cutler also left the game with a concussion in the Sunday Night loss to the Texans. Chicago ranks 30th of 32 teams in the league with 189.8 passing yards per game. Cutler’s top target has been Brandon Marshall, with 904 yards and 7 touchdowns. Chicago’s defense leads the NFL in turnovers, including five in their most recent win over the Tennessee Titans. The Bears will come home and host Minnesota and Seattle after getting back home from this West Coast trip.

Odds and Sports Betting Line

  • Chicago Bears +3.5
  • San Francisco 49ers -3.5

Free Prediction and Pick

Well, this should be a very interesting game. The oddsmakers had a tough job with this game, especially with both teams having quarterbacks as questionable for this game. Cutler and the Bears offense is better overall than Smith and the 49ers. In the end, the defenses will have to come up strong, and we feel the 49ers will be able to beat the Bears at their own game – turnovers. The Bears turn it over more than the 49ers and San Fran wins.

Prediction: San Francisco 49ers 24-20

The San Francisco 49ers are a 3.5 point favorite in this game. San Francisco feels like they are a team that can get to the title game within the NFC. Chicago has proven that they can play with the best of them; but have struggled against the top teams. The two Bears losses have come to the Green Bay Packers and Houston Texans. In the end, we feel the San Francisco 49ers will be able to barely cover the spread over the Chicago Bears.

Pick: San Francisco 49ers -3.5
