Schedule, Odds And Predictions For Sunday Games

Published

on

Get ready for an action-packed Sunday during Week 11 of the 2021 NFL season. There are 13 games on tap today, many of which will have an impact on the playoff picture.

It all starts at 1 p.m. ET, with an early afternoon slate that features divisional leaders like the Buffalo Bills, Baltimore Ravens, Tennessee Titans and Green Bay Packers looking to stay ahead of the pack. Plenty of fringe postseason contenders such as the Carolina Panthers, Philadelphia Eagles, Cleveland Browns, Minnesota Vikings and Indianapolis Colts will also be seeking a much-needed victory in this time slot.

Only three contests will kick off during the late afternoon window, but all three feature clubs with legitimate playoff aspirations going head-to-head. The Cincinnati Bengals and Las Vegas Raiders will each try to avoid falling to .500 when they square off at 4:05 p.m. ET. An important NFC West affair gets underway at 4:25 p.m. ET, with the division-leading Arizona Cardinals looking to fend off the Seattle Seahawks.

Week 11’s marquee matchup also starts at 4:25 p.m. ET, a game that will see the Dallas Cowboys visit Arrowhead Stadium for a clash with the Kansas City Chiefs. Both teams are atop their respective divisions and are coming off huge wins, setting up a can’t-miss clash on Sunday.

The day ends with a Sunday Night Football showdown between the Pittsburgh Steelers and Los Angeles Chargers. The Steelers saw their four-game winning streak come to an end after a disappointing tie to the Detroit Lions in Week 10, while the Chargers fell to the Vikings for their third defeat in their last four outings. Both teams are still right in the hunt for a playoff berth, but neither can truly afford to take an “L” in this nationally televised game.

With so many great games on the schedule, it can become a bit overwhelming to try and identify the best to bet on. If you are looking for some guidance before making your last-minute Week 11 wagers, you have come to the right place.

Read on for a full viewing guide for all of today’s NFL games, including the start times, TV channels, live stream information and updated odds, plus some key betting trends and picks for Week 11’s top contests.

Prior to Week 11, the Eagles had been underdogs in each of their four home games this year, going just 1-3 ATS and 0-4 SU in those matchups.
