Editor’s note: NESN.com’s Mike Cole, Ricky Doyle and Andre Khatchaturian deliver their NFL picks every Thursday of the season, and here’s who they like in the New England Patriots-San Francisco 49ers Week 11 game, with the line from OddsShark.
(-13) New England Patriots (7-2) at San Francisco 49ers (1-8), 4:25 p.m. ET
Mike: 49ers. Might be a “Get in, get out and don’t get anyone hurt game” for the Patriots, which makes this line a bit too high for my liking.
Andre: Patriots. The 49ers are so bad they forced four turnovers against the Arizona Cardinals and still managed to lose. Tom Brady returns home to the Bay Area to play arguably the worst team in football after a heartbreaking loss against the Seattle Seahawks. He’ll be hungry and have a video game performance against a team with an average margin of defeat of 15.5 points over its last eight games.
Ricky: Patriots. It’s a homecoming for Tom Brady, who grew up a 49ers fan in San Mateo, Calif. Just another reason for him to mop the floor with San Francisco.
