Each week, FOX Sports’ Colin Cowherd has his five favorite picks against the spread in the NFL on the second hour of “The Herd” podcast. In addition, Cowherd provides a wealth of stats and knowledge to back up his picks, which is uncommon in sports media sometimes. Despite Cowherd’s struggles early in 2020, he has been on a bit of a heater in the last month. Here is a look at his picks for Week 11 in the NFL.
Atlanta Falcons (+4.5) vs. New Orleans Saints
Falcons coming off a bye, and they are 3-1 with Raheem Morris. Here is why Cowherd likes the Falcons.
- Since Week 6, the Falcons have allowed fewer than 30 points in five straight.
- We know the Falcons can move the ball.
- The Saints are experimenting too much with Taysom Hill, per Cowherd.
Cowherd’s Prediction: ATL 28-27
Philadelphia Eagles (+3.5) vs. Cleveland Browns
Head coach, QB, and practice habits are getting crushed this week. They are focused, per Cowherd. Here is why they win against Cleveland.
- Eagles defense is better than the Browns, per Colin.
- Baker struggles under pressure, Philly can get there.
- Too much adversity, and the Eagles prevail.
Cowherd’s Prediction: PHI 24-20
Indianapolis Colts (-2.5) vs. Green Bay Packers
Colts team with extra prep time after Thursday Night Football last week. We know about Cowherd’s opinion on Aaron Rodgers, here is why he likes the Colts.
- Packers have created just seven turnovers, making Rivers comfortable.
- Rivers has 100+ passer rating in three of the last four, and the Packers cannot get pressure.
- It’s ALL about Rivers being comfortable and the Colts can get after Rodgers under pressure.
Cowherd’s Prediction: IND 24-20
Kansas City Chiefs (-8.5) vs. Las Vegas Raiders
Andy is 18-3 off a bye. Absurd, and they got beat by the Raiders earlier this season. Here is why the Chiefs cover, per Cowherd.
- LV only has 11 sacks, only one pass rusher.
- KC is healthy and well-coached.
Cowherd’s Prediction: KC 36-26
Tampa Bay Buccaneers (-4.5) vs. Los Angeles Rams
Cowherd is 6-1 betting on Rams games this season. Here is why he likes a Rams game again, but on Tampa’s side.
- When Goff is uncomfortable, he is a different QB.
- Bucs have second-best rushing defense, and Whitworth is out for the Rams.
- With the Bucs getting a ton of pressure, this is a bad omen for the Rams.
Cowherd’s Prediction: TB 28-23
