With the Jacksonville Jaguars and Tampa Bay Buccaneers picking up their first wins of 2013 this past week, every NFL team has at least one victory. The Kansas City Chiefs had a bye in Week 10, ensuring that they would remain the only undefeated team left. That, however, is expected to change in Week 11.
For just the second time this season, the Chiefs are underdogs. That’s because they’re visiting the Denver Broncos, who have been favored in every contest. Despite their unblemished record, the Chiefs are predicted to lose big to their division rivals. The betting odds have the Chiefs getting 8.5 points, making the Broncos the second-biggest favorites of the week.
Only the Seattle Seahawks are favored by more than the Broncos is Week 11. They are giving the Minnesota Vikings 13.5 points. Two weeks ago, the NFC West leaders were even bigger favorites at home, but almost blew their game against the Buccaneers. They needed a 10-point comeback in the fourth quarter and overtime to pick up the victory. Seattle is known for being a dominant home team, but they are only 2-2 against the spread in games at CenturyLink Field.
A number of games are expected to go down to the wire. Three feature betting lines of less than two points. Following their first win, Tampa Bay is the smallest underdog, as they get one point from the Atlanta Falcons. The New York Jets and San Diego Chargers are 1.5-point underdogs on the road.
The Thursday Night Football and Monday Night Football games both have point spreads of a field goal or less. The Indianapolis Colts begin the week with a visit to Tennessee, while the Carolina Panthers are favored against the visiting New England Patriots in the final contest of the week.
Only two teams have a bye this week. The Dallas Cowboys are off and will have no control over the Philadelphia Eagles’ quest to take sole possession of first place. The St. Louis Rams are idle after a big win over the Colts.
