All Week 11 odds are now in at the best online NFL betting sites. And you know what that means: It's time for another batch of NFL predictions.

So much is at stake this late into the season. Even with two additional games tacked on to the schedule, there isn't that much football left to play. The odds on Super Bowl betting options are beginning to narrow, giving fringe contenders only so much leeway to establish themselves. And that brings us to our NFL Week 11 picks, in which we ask whether the Kansas City Chiefs are officially back.

Of course, the NFL Week 11 schedule has plenty to offer beyond the Chiefs' matchup with the NFC East-leading Dallas Cowboys. Let's check out all the latest Week 11 NFL betting odds, courtesy of BetOnline:

Week 11 NFL Predictions

For those who are new around these parts, here's a crash course in how we make our NFL picks. Including Chiefs-Cowboys, we'll pluck out our seven best NFL bets for Week 11, aiming to focus on marquee matchups and the best money-making opportunities. 

Get it? Got it? Great. Let's go.

Chiefs Stay Hot Against Cowboys

It was touch and go for the Chiefs over the past two months. Their defense is among the worst in the NFL, and they were losing what should've been winnable games.

The tides appear to have changed. Parades shouldn't be thrown for beating the Las Vegas Raiders, New York Giants and Green Bay Packers without Aaron Rodgers, but Kansas City is gradually starting to look like a Super Bowl contender again.

If nothing else, Patrick Mahomes leading a 41-point charge in Week 10 is enough to convince us Kansas City can take down the Cowboys.

Patriots Get It Done vs. Falcons

Don't look now, but the New England Patriots have won five of their past six games and snuck back into the AFC East title discussion. Talk about a quick rebuild.

New England is above .500 thanks to the league's second-ranked defense. We still don't trust the offense under rookie quarterback Mac Jones, but the Patriots do a good job protecting the ball overall—particularly on the ground.

At any rate, beating the Atlanta Falcons these days isn't a challenge. New England is the pick.

Panthers Squeeze By WFT

Cam Newton is back with the Carolina Panthers and looking sprightly. Not all games will unfold as easily as the win in Week 10, but the Washington Football Team currently has the 28th ranked defense and continues to struggle mightily against the pass and opposing QBs.

Loosely translated: Both Cam and the Panthers should feast on Sunday.

Vikings Grab an Upset Victory Over Packers

We picked the Minnesota Vikings to upset the Los Angeles Chargers last week, and the prediction hit. Call this our heat check.

Really, we just believe the Vikings are an undervalued team. They have a top-10 passing offense and are subtly good at limiting downfield opportunities on the defensive side.

Going up against Aaron Rodgers and the Packers is never a treat, but the reigning MVP didn't look game ready when he returned from COVID-19 in Week 10. Given that Green Bay's premier running back Aaron Jones is out with an injury, the door is open for Minnesota to grab this one.

OSB Prediction: Minnesota Vikings (+125)

Ravens Get Back on Track Against Bears

Anyone who still had doubts about the Baltimore Ravens' Super Bowl stock was validated in Week 10, when they lost 6-3 to the Miami Dolphins.

For as good as Lamar Jackson is, he always seems to follow up a stretch of great performances with a few disappearing acts. It's worth monitoring as we head into the playoffs.

But Week 11 isn't the playoffs. The Ravens are facing the Chicago Bears, a team in transition with a rookie quarterback who's piloting a bottom-three offense. Baltimore should be fine.

OSB Prediction: Baltimore Ravens (-275)

New Orleans Finds a Way Against Philadelphia

On the surface, this is a risk. The New Orleans Saints lost quarterback Jameis Winston for the season and now star running back Alvin Kamara is dealing with an injury. Their offense will be hard-up for big-play potential.

That's okay with us. The Saints have Mark Ingram to fall back on in their ground game. And more than that, the Philadelphia Eagles have been one of the more inconsistent home teams this season while sporting a spotty rushing defense

OSB Prediction: New Orleans Saints (+101)

Miami's Defense Makes Life Tough on New York Jets

With injured quarterbacks galore, the Dolphins shouldn't be seen as easy money. Then again, the New York Jets stink. They're also dealing with QB injuries of their own. Mostly, though, they stink.

Plus, the Dolphins' defense is starting to perk. They limited the Ravens to just six points in Week 10 and held the Houston Texans to only 10 points in Week 9. The Jets have an offense that's on par or worse than Houston's attack. Miami should be able to notch another W.
