NFL Picks: Week 11 Eagles vs Chiefs
On a highly anticipated Monday night, NFL action takes center stage at Arrowhead Stadium where the formidable Philadelphia Eagles will take on the Kansas City Chiefs in a battle of titans. The Eagles, boasting an impressive 8-1 record, come in refreshed from a bye week and a recent victory over the Cowboys. Meanwhile, the 7-2 Chiefs, also coming off a bye, are looking to capitalize on their momentum from a victory in Germany against the Dolphins.

Spread: Eagles +2.5 (-102), Chiefs -2.5 (-118)
Moneyline: Eagles +120, Chiefs -140
Total: O 46 (-109), U 46 (-111)
The Eagles have demonstrated a robust offense this season, averaging 28.0 points per game, complemented by a strong defense that’s held opponents to 21.7 points per game. Their aerial attack has been particularly potent, with 15 touchdowns and an average of 247.1 yards per game, alongside a solid ground game with 12 rushing touchdowns and an average of 129.7 yards. Philadelphia’s latest triumph saw them overturn a halftime deficit against the Cowboys, with Jalen Hurts contributing three touchdowns to seal a 28-23 win. Philadelphia’s track record on the road is notable, with eight consecutive wins following a home win. However, they have historically struggled to cover the spread in Week 11 games when pegged as underdogs.
Kansas City Chiefs
The Chiefs, known for their dynamic offense, have shifted gears, focusing more on a defense that’s allowed a mere 15.9 points per game, while the offense scores 23.1 points on average. Their passing game, led by Patrick Mahomes, has produced 17 touchdowns, and the rushing efforts have added four more to the tally. In their last outing, the Chiefs dominated the first half against the Dolphins and managed to secure a 21-14 victory in an international setting. Kansas City has a remarkable winning streak in November, with 14 straight victories. However, they’ve found it challenging to cover the spread in November when facing NFC opponents, something bettors should consider.
The upcoming match is tipped to be a close contest, with both teams coming in well-prepared after a restful bye week. While the Eagles didn’t dazzle against the Cowboys, they’ve shown the ability to score consistently in recent games. The Chiefs, despite some offensive stutters in Germany, are known to be explosive starters. This game is poised to be a high-octane clash, with the prediction favoring the Eagles to cover the spread in BUSR’s NFL Odds, in what’s expected to be the best game out of this week in the NFL.
