NFL Week 11 Betting: Green Bay Packers @ Detroit Lions Pick and Prediction

The Green Bay Packers and the Detroit Lions will get together Sunday afternoon in a huge tilt between NFC North teams. These two teams are both trailing the Chicago Bears in the division. Green Bay comes into the game with a 6-3 record, and they have won four staight games overall. Detroit has been one of the more disappointing teams in the NFL this season; as they come into the game with a 4-5 record. Detroit lost their most recent game to the Minnesota Vikings.

The Detroit Lions need a win in a bad way. The Lions will have to get their receiver Calvin Johnson going on the offensive side. Johnson has just two touchdowns on the season. Mikel LeShoure, the running back out of the University of Illinois has four rushing touchdowns; with three of them coming in one game. The Lions are the top passing team in the NFL behind quarterback Matthew Stafford. Detroit is passing for 307.3 yards per game. The Lions are two games behind for the NFC wildcards spot. The Lions are playing their first of three straight home games; as they see the Texans and Colts come to town the next two weeks.

The Green Bay Packers have been red-hot since their loss at Indianapolis. The Packers have beaten Houston, St. Louis, Jacksonville and Arizona all by a touchdown or more. The Packers leading receiver has been Randall Cobb with 500 receiving yards and 6 touchdowns on the season. Green Bay has been unable to run the ball effectively, as they are rushing for just 99.7 yards per game. The Packers have outscored opponents 239-187. Green Bay is playing their second of two straight road games. Next weekend, the Packers will head to New York to take on the Giants.

Odds and Sports Betting Line

  • Green Bay Packers -3.5
  • Detroit Lions +3.5

Free Prediction and Pick

The Green Bay Packers are looking to win their fifth straight game. The Packers feel they are just as good, or better than any other team out of the NFC. Green Bay can pass just as well as anyone. Detroit will have a tough time slowing down the passing game of the Packers. We do not feel they are disciplined and talented enough to score with the Packers. In the end, Green Bay comes away with a win in this game over the Lions.

Prediction: Green Bay Packers 31-17

The Green Bay Packers are just over a field goal favorite in this game; despite being on the road. We feel the Packers will continue their run at catching the Chicago Bears in the division. The Packers score early and score often, and come away with a win, and will cover the spread over the Lions.

Pick: Green Bay Packers -3.5

NFL Week 10 Betting: Houston Texans at Chicago Bears Pick and Prediction

In one of the best Sunday Night Football games of the season – the Houston Texans will travel to Chicago to take on the Bears. Many have said this game could be a preview of the Super Bowl, which will take place in February. The Houston Texans are currently the top seed out of the AFC with a 7-1 record. Chicago is second, behind Atlanta in the NFC with the exact same record – of 7-1. Both teams lone losses came to the Green Bay Packers.

The Chicago Bears have been winning games on the defensive end. The Bears looked terrific last week against Tennessee, blocking a punt for a touchdown, returning an interception for a touchdown, and recovering numerous fumbles by the Titans offense. Chicago is looking for some consistency from their pass offense, led by Jay Cutler. The Bears rank 29th in the league with 196.8 yards per game. Chicago’s running back Matt Forte is once again having a solid season; running for 539 yards and 3 touchdowns. Chicago has won all four of their games at home this season.

The Houston Texans are coming off a 21-9 win over the Buffalo Bills last week. The Texans have a tremendous defense. The Texans rank fourth in passing yards allowed and 2nd in rushing yards. The offense for Houston has been pretty good most of the season with the trio of Matt Schaub, Arian Foster and Andre Johnson. Houston has been a very effective team running the ball, with Foster at 770 yards and 10 touchdowns. The Texans come into the game with a 1.5 game lead over the Indianapolis Colts in the AFC South. Houston and Indianapolis have yet to play this season; playing twice in the final three weeks of the season.

Odds and Sports Betting Line

  •  Houston Texans +1
  • Chicago Bears -1

Free Prediction and Pick

 This should be a very interesting game. Both teams would like to show the world, that they are going to be a force to reckon with in the postseason. Both teams have teams breathing down their back in the division. The Packers are chasing Chicago and Indianapolis continues to surprise. Look for the Texans running game to give the Bears some fits. Jay Cutler has got to have a good game, and hasn’t been a real good player on Sunday Night’s in the past. We like the Texans to come away with a road win in this one.

Prediction: Houston Texans 24-21

The Chicago Bears are -1 in this game. Houston can play just as well on the defensive side of the ball as Chicago, they just don’t get as many turnovers. If the Texans can take care of the football on offense, look for them to win the game. In the end, Houston covers the spread, and wins the game.

 Pick: Houston Texans +1

NFL Week 10 Betting: Dallas Cowboys at Philadelphia Eagles Pick and Prediction

In a battle of two of the most underacheiving teams in the National Football League – the Dallas Cowboys will take on the Philadelphia Eagles on Sunday. Both teams come into the game with a 3-5 record, which is 2.5 games behind the Giants in the NFC East. The Eagles and Cowboys are both on a losing streak, and needing wins to stay remotely alive in the postseason picture.  The Eagles lost to the Saints on Monday Night, while Dallas was downed by the Atlanta Falcons on Sunday Night.

The Philadelphia Eagles are a mess right now. Michael Vick cannot hold onto the football, and the offense in general cannot score. Andy Reid is fighting for his head coaching life – basically things are ugly in the city of brotherly love. For the second straight season, Philadelphia is in jeopardy of missing the postseason after being a favorite to get to the Super Bowl. The Eagles last win came on September 30th against the Giants. Vick has thrown for just 10 touchdowns through 8 games this season. DeSean Jackson, who had a long touchdown on Monday night, has just two on the season. The Eagles top running back LeSean McCoy is probable to play with a slight injury.

Dallas is not much better when it comes to the “bad news” department. Their head coach Jason Garrett is also being rumored to be let go, possibly by the end of the season. The Cowboys last win came on October 21st at Carolina. Dallas’ quarterback Tony Romo has thrown for 2,394 yards, but just 10 touchdowns, as he also has thrown several key interceptions. The Cowboys may be without their top running back threat in DeMarco Murray. Dallas is 2-3 in road games so far this season.

Odds and Sports Betting Line

  •  Dallas Cowboys -1.5
  • Philadelphia Eagles +1.5

Free Prediction and Pick

The Philadelphia Eagles have a ton of talent. They need to put it together, and things will settle down a bit. That has yet to happen, as even their three early wins came by the slimmest of margins. The Eagles will play well against their divisional rival on Sunday. In the end, we look for Philadelphia to find a way to come away with a win in this one. Look for Vick to take care of the football, and Philadelphia moves to 4-5.

Prediction: Philadelphia Eagles 21-20

The Eagles are actually home underdogs, which is not usual for them. Dallas does not have much on Philadelphia in terms of why they should be favorites; especially on the road. We feel the oddsmakers are putting alot of stock into the crashing mess that the Philadelphia Eagles are. Talent will win games, and that’s what happens here. We like the Eagles to cover the spread and win the game.

 Pick: Philadelphia Eagles +1.5
