Safest Bet: New England Patriots (+1.5)

This week's Monday Night Football matchup features the vaunted New England Patriots squaring off against the red-hot Carolina Panthers in Charlotte, and the Panthers' recent success has translated to the team becoming betting favorites this week.  

Carolina has played lights-out during its five-game winning streak (the fifth-ranked pass defense and second-ranked run defense have led the charge), and the return of a consistent rushing attack has also opened up more room for quarterback Cam Newton to work.

The Patriots are fully rested after a perfectly timed bye in Week 10, though. While the team didn’t start the season playing well (ranked 18th with 232 passing yards per game), the return of tight end Rob Gronkowski has helped Tom Brady and the New England offense return to elite form.

As well as the Panthers have played this season, New England knows how win close games in the latter half of the season.

Predicted Final Score: New England 20, Carolina 17

Riskiest Bet: Denver Broncos (-7.5)

The Denver Broncos have the most explosive offensive unit in the NFL (ranked first, racking up an average of 353.4 yards per game), but the 7.5-point spread over the currently undefeated Kansas City Chiefs is the riskiest bet of the day.

On paper, it looks to be a slap in the face to the Chiefs. Kansas City is a great team predicated on running the ball with Jamaal Charles and playing stingy defense.

While Denver has made each of its opponents look foolish this season, that won't be the case Sunday against its AFC West division rivals.

Not only do the Chiefs boast the NFL’s sixth-best pass defense (allowing only 208.3 yards per game), but the fact that Broncos starter Peyton Manning could be dealing with the residual issues associated with an ankle injury, per Mike Klis of the Denver Post, may become an issue in this game.

If you are looking to make a wager on games this week, bettors should stay far away from this matchup unless they are putting money on the Chiefs to cover. While the Broncos may win the game outright, covering the 7.5-point spread is far from a lock.

Predicted Final Score: Denver 27, Kansas City 24
