The New England Patriots travel to face the Indianapolis Colts in a Week 11 matchup of divisional leaders on “Sunday Night Football.” The Patriots remain field-goal underdogs, according to sportsbooks monitored by OddsShark.com.
The Patriots have controlled this series, going 4-2 against the spread versus the Colts, and 16-2-1 ATS in Indianapolis. The total has climbed as high as 58 points, but it is still worth a look. The two teams have gone OVER in the last five matchups, and both teams currently rank in the top three in scoring. Both teams are as healthy as can be expected on offense. The OddsShark Computer predicts a 35-33 Patriots victory, which would provide for the New England cover and the OVER.
The closest line of Sunday belongs to Atlanta-Carolina. It opened with the Panthers as 2.5-point favorites, but it has dropped to even, with a couple sportsbooks monitored by OddsShark.com listing the Falcons as 1-point favorites. Atlanta is 2-4 ATS in its last six games in Carolina, but the computer predicts a 22-16 Falcons win.
The biggest game of the week features the Detroit Lions and Arizona Cardinals in a matchup of surprising first-place teams. The Cardinals opened as field-goal favorites, but the line has come down to them as 1-point favorites. Arizona has won five straight against the spread, but it will turn to Drew Stanton after Carson Palmer suffered a season-ending ACL injury. The computer predicts a close 25-24 Cardinals win.
Green Bay hosts Philadelphia and Kansas City hosts Seattle in two other huge matchups. The Packers are 6-point favorites against an Eagles team that’s coming in on a short week after “Monday Night Football.” Both teams are 5-1 ATS in their last six, and Philadelphia has won seven of 10 on the road. The computer predicts a slim 34-33 Eagles win.
The Seahawks are underdogs for the first time since the Super Bowl, getting one or two points, depending on the sportsbook. The Seahawks are 8-1 ATS as road underdogs the last two seasons, and the OddsShark Computer predicts another win, 32-30.
Denver is the biggest road favorite Sunday, giving 10 points to St. Louis. The Broncos are 5-1 ATS in their last six games and 5-2 ATS on the road. The computer predicts the cover with a 30-14 win.
The only other significant road favorite is San Francisco at the New York Giants. The 49ers are as high as 4.5-point favorites. The 49ers are 12-6-1 ATS as road favorites under Jim Harbaugh. The computer predicts a Giants cover, with a 21-19 49ers win.
