Beating the Book: Chris Liss Handicaps Week 11
Beating the Book: Chris Liss Handicaps Week 11

This article is part of our Beating the Book series.

Last week wasn't great – 6-6-1, and though I won my best bet (Bears), I went 2-3 in the Super Contest

This week, I felt the lines were pretty tight – in fact, my numbers were within half a point of the market's on seven of 14 games. I especially like the Cowboys and Chargers, while I'm dicey on the Saints, Bears and Eagles.

Steelers +3 at Browns

I made this line three, so I was on the Browns when it was 2.5, but now that it's three it's a coin flip. Give me the team with the better coach – the Steelers. 

Browns 20 - 19


Cowboys -4.5 at Lions

I don't know whether Matthew Stafford will play, and if he doesn't, I like the Cowboys to roll. Even if he plays, the Cowboys should run roughshod over Detroit's soft defense. Lay the wood. 

Cowboys 27 - 17

Saints -5.5 at Buccaneers

I made this line exactly 5.5, so this is another coin flip for me, but I'll take the Saints to bounce back after an inexplicably terrible week. 

Saints 30 - 23

Falcons +5.5 at Panthers

Maybe the Falcons have turned a corner on defense, but I'll need to see it for more than one game before I buy in. Give me the Panthers at home, coming off a tough loss. 

Panthers 31 - 24

Jaguars +3
