NFL Week 11 Best Bets: Bengals, Chiefs Pegged as Slim Favourites

Two teams aiming to snap losing streaks and claw their way back into the NFL playoff picture clash on Sunday as the Cincinnati Bengals host the Las Vegas Raiders as slim 1-point favourites. The Bengals return from a Week 10 bye searching to end a two-game slide, while the Raiders try to overcome a humbling 41-14 loss to the Kansas City Chiefs. Kansas City is featured in this weekend’s marquee matchup, as quarterback Patrick Mahomes leads the Chiefs into action against Dak Prescott and the visiting Dallas Cowboys as 3-point chalk.

Cincinnati Bengals -1 vs Las Vegas Raiders

Team Records
Bengals: 5-4 SU, 4-5 ATS
Raiders: 5-4 SU, 4-5 ATS

The Cincinnati Bengals aim to resuscitate their flagging playoff hopes as they travel to Las Vegas to face the Raiders as slender 1-point favourites on the NFL Week 11 odds at Bodog. The Bengals emerged as one of the surprise stories of the season while opening their campaign on a 5-2 SU run that lifted them to the top of the AFC North standings. However, the wheels have fallen off while losing outright as betting favourites in their past two outings.

The Bengals were stunned by a 34-31 road loss to the New York Jets and followed up with a crushing 41-16 defeat at the hands of the visiting Cleveland Browns before enjoying last week’s bye. While Cincy should return to action well-rested, their chances of returning to the win column will hinge on a return to form of passer Joe Burrow, who was sacked five times while failing to find the end zone for the first time this season in the team’s recent loss to Cleveland.

The Raiders also have a mountain to climb after getting bounced from the top of the AFC West standings with back-to-back SU and ATS losses to the New York Giants and Kansas City. Las Vegas has averaged just 15 points per game during its current swoon and has been limited to 16 or fewer points four times during its current 2-4 SU run.

Best Bet: Bengals -1 (1.91) at Bodog

Dallas Cowboys vs Kansas City Chiefs -1.5

Team Records
Cowboys: 7-2 SU, 8-1 ATS
Chiefs: 6-4 SU, 3-7 ATS

Fresh off of last weekend’s 41-14 rout of the Raiders, the Kansas City Chiefs aim for a fourth straight win as they host the NFC East-leading Dallas Cowboys as 3-point chalk on the NFL Week 11 odds at Bet99. While the Chiefs offence was rolling in their demolition of the Raiders, it has been a stout defence that has vaulted the team back to their familiar position atop the AFC West standings.

Losers in four of their first six outings of the season, while surrendering 29 or more points on five occasions, the Chiefs have settled down considerably during their current 4-1 SU run, allowing fewer than 13 points per game over their four recent victories. While Kansas City has lost ground since opening the season neck-and-neck on the Super Bowl 56 odds with Tampa Bay, they have recovered somewhat during their recent surge, and currently sit as a 9.00 bet on the NFL futures at Sports Interaction.

The Cowboys travel to Arrowhead Stadium for Sunday’s clash with the Chiefs on the heels of a dominating victory of their own. Dallas faced little opposition while marching to a lopsided 43-3 win over the visiting Atlanta Falcons, and now enjoys a sizeable 3.5-game lead over second-place Philadelphia in the NFC East.

With quarterback Dak Prescott showing no ill effects from the gruesome ankle injury that ended his 2020 campaign, the Cowboys have regularly run up the score. Dallas has averaged a league-leading 31.6 points per game, generating steady dividends for loyal sports bettors by covering in eight of nine outings, including a pair of outright wins as road underdogs. The Cowboys also hold the historical edge in head-to-head meetings with Kansas City, going 5-2 SU and 4-2-1 ATS in seven clashes in 1989. However, unlike past clashes between these two teams, expect offensive fireworks in a highly anticipated showdown between Prescott and Chiefs pivot Patrick Mahomes.

Best Bet: Chiefs -3 (1.95) at Bet99
