Guide to NFL Betting in November 2020
After a COVID scare in October, bookies get info on upcoming spreads, rescheduled matchups, and important oddsmaker info for NFL betting in November.
As we move into November, it appears the NFL passed its first COVID crisis. In October, the Tennessee Titans and New England Patriots had pandemic scares that sent ripples throughout the NFL schedule. The results were numerous changes, canceled games, and canceled wagers for pph sportsbook bookies.
The NFL has survived. Bettors can now focus on key games, teams, and potential point spreads for matchups throughout November.
NFL Betting November, Week 8
Pittsburgh Steelers at Baltimore Ravens, November 1st at 1 p.m. ET
After surviving versus undefeated Tennessee, the 6-0 Pittsburgh Steelers get another tough matchup, this time on the road, versus a division opponent.
Early odds have the Ravens favored by approximately 5.5 points as they have just one loss on their regular-season record and are coming off a Week 7 bye.
Also, while Ben Roethlisberger led his Steelers past Tennessee, he had three interceptions in the game, and the offense only scored three points in the second half. The Ravens defense should fare better as they allow a league-best 17.3 points per game.
This matchup should garner plenty of sports betting attention. Although the Steelers are entering the contest with an impressive 5-1 record ATS, anticipate action on both sides of the point spread.
NFL Week 9
New Orleans Saints at Tampa Bay Buccaneers, November 8th at 8:20 p.m. ET
Tom Brady gets his second shot at Drew Brees and Naw’Lins after suffering a 34-23 loss in Week 1 as 4-point underdogs. That said, Week 1 feels ages ago, and it appears both teams are slowly going in different directions.
The Saints seem to be in decline on both sides of the ball; the Bucs are ascending. Brady is finding his groove, and the talent on defense seems to have finally clicked. Tampa Bay ranks third in total yards and held the 6-1 Green Bay Packers to just 10 points in Week 5.
Anticipate at least a 3-point spread with the Bucs at home. Also, notorious and talented wide receiver Antonio Brown is coming to Brady’s already elite receiving core, which should garner plenty of interest on the Bucs’ spread.
NFL Betting, Week 10
Buffalo Bills at Arizona Cardinals, November 15th at 4:05 p.m. ET
If Week 7 against the Seattle Seahawks has proven anything, it’s that Cardinals quarterback Kyler Murray is must-see TV. Murray posted 360 passing yards, 67 rushing yards, and four touchdowns in a 37-34 OT win over Seattle, cementing his status as a growing star.
He’ll face a Bills team who, up until Week 5, had a must-see QB themselves. Josh Allen and the Bills scored at least 27 points per game before meeting Tennessee in Week 5. Unfortunately, they scored just 16 in Week 5, 17 against the Kansas City Chiefs in Week 6, and 18 in a Week 7 win versus the lowly New York Jets. They won one of three straight up and lost all three against the spread.
Despite the Bills’ struggles, expect the Cardinals to open only as 2-3 point favorites as their defense has struggled since losing leading pass rusher, Chandler Jones. Bettors will likely lean Cardinals in the matchup.
NFL Betting – November, Week 11
Tennessee Titans at Baltimore Ravens, November 22nd at 1 p.m. ET
Tennessee failed its first big test versus Pittsburgh in Week 7, but get another shot at an AFC contender in the Ravens.
The Titans were home underdogs versus the Steelers, therefore expect them to open as underdogs by five points or more versus a Ravens team itching for payback after a 28-10 loss in last season’s divisional round.
NFL Week 12 – Thanksgiving Week
Baltimore Ravens at Pittsburgh Steelers, November 26th at 8:20 p.m. ET
Anyone trying to understand how to become a bookie should circle Thanksgiving weekend as a perfect starting point to garner player interest. During the holiday, players will have plenty of time to watch the games and place bets with free betting software. Two marquee matchups will garner plenty of attention, one of them a rematch of the Steelers/Ravens bout from Week 8.
The division lead in the AFC North could be on the line in this Thursday matchup. Expect the Steelers to be approximately 5.5-point favorites. The spread ultimately depends on how their Week 8 matchup unfolds on November 1st.
Kansas City Chiefs at Tampa Bay Buccaneers, November 29th at 4:25 p.m. ET
Thanksgiving Sunday lines up a potential Super Bowl matchup with Brady and the Bucs facing Mahomes and the Kansas City Chiefs.
Earlier in the season, oddsmakers probably would’ve hedged the odds towards the Chiefs. But with the Bucs playing hot and new weapons on the way, expect a 2-point spread in the Bucs’ favor.
If Tampa comes into the game rolling, bookies offering pph software may see more action on Tampa’s side. Though the Chiefs are 5-2 ATS this year and have an easy schedule leading to this matchup, they’ve looked beatable on any given Sunday.
