We have got a big weekend of NFL action ahead of the Thanksgiving week, but before that, we have three bets for three big games this Sunday!

 

With week 11 up and running after Thursday night, we have got three bets for three big games this Sunday. We are firmly in the business end of the season now and everything matters. Here are three matchups to take a look at and here’s a nice treble around 6/1.

Patriots

The New England Patriots have had a tough season compared to their normal procession to the playoffs. Obviously, everyone knew it would be tough without Tom Brady, but sitting at (4-5) was not what they hoped. Cam Newton has looked ok at times, but nowhere near what many hoped. He has rushed for nine touchdowns, the second-most in the league, but only thrown three through the air. Also, he has thrown seven interceptions in the Patriots nine games, which is cause for concern. However, they have looked better in recent weeks, winning two of their last three games.

They have been decimated by injuries on the offense and because of that, they will struggle to put up points. Starting running back Sony Michel is on injured reserve, and so is star wide receiver Julian Edelman. Damien Harris played well against the Ravens last Sunday, but he is also questionable for this game. N’Keal Harry and Jakobi Meyers are now the two main targets for Newton. One positive is the defense, which despite Covid opt-outs, looks competitive and has the ability to win the team games.

Texans

The Houston Texans are having a bad season that needs to come to an end. They are currently sitting at (2-7), with an interim head coach, and struggling to get wins. Both of their wins came against the Jacksonville Jaguars and it could get worse on Sunday. Deshaun Watson is a star Quarterback, but he doesn’t seem to have the talent around him that he needs. The offensive line has been poor, which leads to him having to escape the pocket more often than he would like. Watson has thrown 18 touchdowns and rushed for another, but has also thrown five interceptions.

The running back room has struggled since David Johnson went down with an injury two weeks ago. Since then, Duke Johnson has taken over, but he’s always been a better pass catcher than a true between-the-tackles runner. At wide receiver, the Texans have got three decent options in Will Fuller, Brandin Cooks, and Randall Cobb. Unfortunately, none of them have been consistent and have struggled to put up decent numbers. Also, the defense has been poor for most of the season but did look a bit better on Sunday against the Browns. However, looking at both teams objectively, the Patriots might have the better roster with a strong chance of winning.

The bet : New England Patriots to win with the spread (-2.0) at 10/11

 

Philadelphia Eagles vs Cleveland Browns

Eagles

The Philadelphia Eagles have had a poor year so far, but somehow still top the NFC East. They currently sit (3-5-1) and just came off a disappointing loss to the Giants. So far, Carson Wentz has looked bad, although his offensive line has been decimated with injuries which has not helped. He has thrown 12 touchdowns in nine games, but he has also thrown 12 interceptions. Miles Sanders has 519 yards rushing (6.0 yards-per-carry) and three touchdowns in just six games.

At wide receiver, the Eagles have struggled to keep their main guys on the field. Alshon Jeffrey has been injured all season and Desean Jackson has been in and out for the team. The main pass catcher has been Travis Fulgham, who has picked up four touchdowns this year. At tight-end, the Eagles have missed both Zack Ertz and Dallas Goedert during parts of the season, but both are back. Defensively, the Eagles have played poorly, but they have missed players due to injury.

Browns

The Cleveland Browns have not looked great since the start of the season, but they still sit at (6-3). They lost to the Vegas Raiders two weeks ago and managed to pick up a win against the Texans last Sunday. They have only managed to score 16 points over the last two games, but it seems to be working since their still winning. Baker Mayfield has thrown for 15 touchdowns and seven interceptions. Also, the loss of Odell Beckham Jr has been tough for Baker over the last few weeks.

One positive is that Nick Chubb has come back from injury and will reunite with Kareem Hunt. Both guys have done well this year and will continue to churn up the yards in the Brown ground game. This is what makes the Browns dangerous with only Jarvis Landry at receiver. Landry has yet to score a touchdown, which shows how much they rely on the run game. Defensively, the Browns have been decent in the last couple of weeks, only giving up 23 points in the last two games.

The Bet : Cleveland Browns to win with the spread (-3.0) at 10/11

 

Miami Dolphins vs Denver Broncos

Dolphins

The Miami Dolphins are on a great run, having won their last five games in a row. They began at (1-3), but have managed to beat some good teams on their way to (6-3). Tua Tagovailoa replaced Ryan Fitzpatrick and is currently undefeated so far in his short career. He has not been amazing, but he has not had to be. The defense has been playing much better over the last few weeks and likely will carry momentum deep into the season. The 49ers and Rams put up 17 points against them and the Chargers only managed 21.

At running back, Myles Gaskin is still injured and Jordan Howard has been released. However, the Dolphins have little known Salvon Ahmed who rushed for 85 yards and a touchdown against the Chargers. At wide receiver, the Dolphins lost Preston Williams to injury, but Devante Parker is still a superb option for Tua. Also, at tight-end, Mike Gesicki is a young, emerging talent who could step up and be a reliable target.

Broncos

The Denver Broncos have had a rough start sitting (3-6). It is unlikely they will be able to turn it around given the number of injuries they have had. They lost star defender Von Miller at the beginning of the season and Courtland Sutton after just a few games. Also, starting quarterback Drew Lock has been struggling with injuries of his own and it’s unknown if he will play this game. However, he’s been inconsistent at best and has thrown only seven touchdowns to ten interceptions this year.

At running back, the Broncos have both Melvin Gordon and Phillip Lindsay who complement each-others running styles well. Gordon has been the main guy, hitting five touchdowns to Lindsay’s one, but both are capable runners able to grind down a defense. At wide receiver, Jerry Jeudy is Lock’s favorite target and Tim Patrick has been productive. The defense has struggled with injuries giving up a lot of points over the last four weeks.

The Bet : Miami Dolphins to win the spread (-3.5) at 10/11
