Redskins & Chiefs On Warpath In Week 11 Upset Alert

Videos by OutKick

Once again we made like a gymnast and did the splits on Week 10 upset picks with an outright and ATS loss by the Bengals but cashed an outright money line winner by the Giants. Let’s stop the nonsense and sweep the week with a wager on the Redskins and Chiefs!

Texans (6-3 SU, 4-4-1 ATS) at Redskins (6-3 SU, 6-3 ATS) – Sunday, 1:00 PM ET

The Redskins took the bend-but-don’t-break strategy to its absurd degree when they allowed Ryan Fitzpatrick to toss for over 400 yards yet yielded only a field goal in their 16-3 win in Tampa last week. The Washington defense was opportunistic as they picked off Fitzy twice and recovered two fumbles, which derailed the prolific Bucs’ attack. Alex Smith did what Alex Smith does and contributed a solid, although unspectacular, performance passing for 178 yards with one TD strike. That’s all it took to get the win and now the Skins prepare to entertain the Texans this week.

Speaking of Houston, the Texans were lucky to escape Mile High with a 19-17 win over the Broncos before Houston’s bye last week. A 51-yard Brandon McManus field goal attempt sailed wide as time expired and gave Houston the victory. The issue we have with the Texans is that while their defense is stout, ranked seventh in points allowed, their offense is erratic. Yet the are -3 on Sportsbook Review’s best online sportsbooks.

Similar comparisons can be drawn to Washington, a team that clocks in at No. 4 in points allowed, yet whose offense ranks near the cellar at 27th. We don’t see a lot of points being scored in this one but we are partial to Smith managing the game and not taking unnecessary risks. Deshaun Watson has more than double Smith’s interceptions this season and the Washington defense is adept enough at making Watson pay if he’s reckless.

Washington is 4-1 ATS over their last four while Houston is 2-8 ATS over their last 10 road games versus a team with a winning home record. We’re getting a field goal head start with the home team against a squad that has an identical record and one that is similarly built. Grab the points but watch for an outright Washington win!


Chiefs (9-1 SU, 8-2 ATS) at Rams (9-1 SU, 4-5-1 ATS) – Monday, 8:15 PM ET

The first thing we did when we saw this potential Super Bowl preview was to click on over to Sportsbook Review, home to all things sports betting including the latest lines from all the best online sportsbooks to find out just how high the oddsmakers were willing to go on the total. Well, lo and behold, this is not just high but stratospheric as most of the premier books are hanging the number at a historic 63.5 and it could go even higher!

Obviously, this is the marquee matchup of the week, and it will now be held in Los Angeles instead of Mexico City due to field problems down south. In a test between two exemplary offenses, we must look to the defensive side of the ball. After a rough start, the Chiefs’ D has come alive as evidenced by the 17 PPG average by their opponents over their last four games. Conversely, the Rams are flat out winning track meets, defense be damned, and are surrendering over 28 points per game. Now they face one of the most prolific aerial attacks in the league and the scoreboard will be electrified with crooked numbers all night long.

If you’re into stats, check out a few of these trends;

  • Chiefs are 4-0 ATS vs. a team with a winning record.
  • Chiefs are 5-1 ATS in their last six Monday games.
  • Chiefs are 12-3 ATS in their last 15 games overall.
  • Rams are 1-5 ATS in their last six games following a straight up win.
  • Rams are 1-6 ATS in their last seven games overall.
  • Rams are 0-5 ATS in their last five games after scoring more than 30 points in their previous game

So if you’ve got a hunch then bet a bunch and get on over to Sportsbook Review where you can see not just one but all the point spreads and totals from the best online sportsbooks in one place. Grab the points, back the Chiefs, and start next week on a winning note!
