After 10 weeks of NFL action, every team has at least one win and every team has at least one loss. Not only did the last undefeated team go down in Week 10, but the NFL also made its regular-season debut in Germany. While there were plenty of fun games last week, Week 11 shapes up to be another great one with some converging trends and storylines to follow and enjoy.
This week, the action gets underway on Thursday Night Football with a good matchup between the Titans and the Packers. There are eight games in the early 1:00 p.m. ET Sunday window, followed by three late games, including a big NFC showdown between the 8-1 Minnesota Vikings and the 6-3 Dallas Cowboys. The Sunday night game is an AFC West contest between the Kansas City Chiefs and Los Angeles Chargers, and we close out the week with another matchup from the West, where the 49ers take on the Cardinals in Arizona on Monday Night Football.
As you break down all the matchups and get your betting cards ready on DraftKings Sportsbook, take a look at these trends against the spread and totals to help you make the right picks. The lines provided are as of Wednesday morning, and odds and lines are subject to change leading up to kickoff.
