NFL Week 11 Monday Night Football features one of the top games of the entire season. Not only do we get a rematch of Super Bowl 57, but we also get all the Taylor Swift drama we know everyone is craving. Or maybe it’s the fact that we get Travis Kelce and Jason Kelce, brothers by blood and co-hosts of the New Heights Podcast, squaring off here in the regular season. Whatever drama you prefer – romance, sibling rivalry or gridiron battles – this should be a hot one as Jalen Hurts and the Philadelphia Eagles head into Arrowhead stadium to take on Patrick Mahomes and the Kansas City Chiefs. Now the question is – how do you bet this extraordinary game? We’ll take a look at football picks against the spread, going over or under on the game total, best bets and, of course, our favorite player props for Monday Night Football. So, buckle up and let’s get going!
NFL Monday Night Football Best Bets: Philadelphia Eagles vs Kansas City Chiefs
The Spread: Chiefs -2.5
This is probably one of the tougher games to pick against the spread as the Chiefs are 6-3 ATS on the season and 4-1 ATS both at home and over their last five overall. The Eagles are 5-2-2 ATS on the season and 3-1-1 ATS both on the road and over their last five games as well. It’s the irresistible force meeting the immovable object. So where do we go? The Chiefs beat the Eagles in the Super Bowl last year and covered the spread. Does that work? Probably not, and when you look at the match-ups – the Chiefs with a strong pass defense and mid-level run defense; the Eagles with a strong run defense and a mid-level pass defense – you’re not getting much help either. Traditionally, this would be a no-bet for me, but since we’re in the business of making picks, I will say that the coaching in Kansas City is superior and in a close game I’ll follow the current trends of favorites being 8-4 straight up and 6-4-2 against the spread.
Pick: Chiefs -2.5 (-115)
The Total: 45.5
The game total seems much less aggravating if you are looking for action on the game. The under is 11-1 on Monday Night Football and it is 25-8 in prime-time games, hitting 16 of the last 18 times. With both defenses having so much strength, the under being 4-1 at Arrowhead this season and the under going 3-2 in Eagles road games, we’ll simply let the trend be our friend this week.
Pick: Under 45.5 (-110)
