Full list of Week 11 straight-up picks with confidence levels

The NFL returns for Week 11 and we’ve got a look at who we think will win each game taking place this week, and at what level of confidence.

The NFL is back for Week 11, and it’s set to open on Thursday Night Football with the Seahawks hosting the Cardinals in a huge NFC West matchup. The week wraps on Monday Night Football with the Buccaneers hosting the Rams.

It’s time once again to start picking winners. Each Thursday, I put together a list of straight up picks for the weekly schedule. I’ll have picks against the spread over the weekend, but this is a chance to just pick winners and losers. This year though, I’ve changed up the approach. Instead of simply picking winners and losers, I’m also grouping the picks by confidence — high confidence, medium confidence, low confidence, no confidence.

I had a solid performance last week, going 10-4. Below I’ve posted all my picks, with my record in that confidence level in parenthesis. A game with three asterisks (***) after it indicate a game where I’m picking the betting underdog to get the win.

High confidence (35-8)

Steelers over Jaguars
Chargers over Jets

Medium confidence (30-16)

Ravens over Titans
Browns over Eagles
Saints over Falcons
Colts over Packers
Chiefs over Raiders

Low confidence (15-20)

Seahawks over Cardinals
Dolphins over Broncos
Buccaneers over Rams

No confidence (8-9)

Panthers over Lions
Texans over Patriots
Washington over Bengals
Cowboys over Vikings
