NFL Betting Power Rankings – November
NFL Betting Power Rankings
The NFL standings will show you a team’s position in the league, but it’s important to also be aware of how all 32 teams are performing against the spread (ATS). Using their margin of victory (MOV) as a tiebreaker, Bovada’s NFL Betting Power Rankings will help you figure out which teams have better odds of covering the spread in the weeks to come. Now let’s take a closer look at the current NFL Betting Power Rankings heading into the month of November.
NFL Betting Power Rankings – November
1.Dallas Cowboys (6-0 ATS, 9.8 MOV)
The Cowboys are the only NFL team remaining with a perfect record against the spread. With QB Dak Prescott leading Dallas to a league-best 34.2 PPG, and the defense sitting third in the NFL with 14 takeaways, this is one team you do not want to bet against any time soon.
2. Arizona Cardinals (6-1 ATS, 15.9 MOV)
Arizona remains undefeated in the standings and is 6-1 ATS so far this season. Cards QB Kyler Murray has played at an MVP-level, helping the team to cover some sizable point spreads as large betting favorites.
3. Green Bay Packers (6-1 ATS, 3.1 MOV)
The Packers defense has struggled as they deal with several notable injuries including CB Jaire Alexander, however, QB Aaron Rodgers and WR Davante Adams continue to lead Green Bay to victory week after week.
4. Tennessee Titans (5-2 ATS, 4.1 MOV)
Following a couple of huge betting upsets versus the Bills and Chiefs, the Titans are now getting the respect they deserve from odds makers. With some tough matchups in the weeks to come, Tennessee should provide some excellent betting value.
5. Indianapolis Colts (5-2 ATS, 2.9 MOV)
Despite their sub-.500 record in the standings, the Colts are an impressive 5-2 ATS heading into November. With QB Carson Wentz returning to form, and a defense that excels at creating turnovers, the Colts have become a solid betting option.
6. Buffalo Bills (4-2 ATS, 17.5 MOV)
Combining the NFL’s top-ranked scoring defense with the second-best scoring offense is a recipe for success and explains why the Bills have such a sizeable MOV. With QB Josh Allen at the helm, Buffalo has enough skill to cover just about any point spread.
7. Los Angeles Chargers (4-2 ATS, -0.3 MOV)
The Chargers have played well so far this season but their leaky run defense was just exposed in a 34-6 beatdown at the hands of the Ravens. Franchise quarterback, Justin Herbert, will need to pick up the slack if they want to be serious AFC contenders.
8. Cincinnati Bengals (4-3 ATS, 8.7 MOV)
The connection between QB Joe Burrow and rookie WR Ja’Marr Chase continues to terrorize opposing defenses. The Bengals have become a popular betting pick this year and that should continue following their big win over Baltimore.
9. Los Angeles Rams (4-3 ATS, 8.7 MOV)
While they own one of the league’s best records at 6-1, the Rams have faced a number of large point spreads this season and gone just 4-3 ATS. This team has legit Super Bowl aspirations but is currently one game back off the Cardinals in the competitive NFC West.
10. Las Vegas Raiders (4-3 ATS, 2.0 MOV)
Most expected the Raiders to crumble following the resignation of head coach Jon Gruden, but the black and silver responded with impressive wins over the Broncos and Eagles. Could this be the year we see NFL playoff action in Las Vegas?
11. Cleveland Browns (4-3 ATS, 1.1 MOV)
Although the Browns have been hit with injuries to several key players, they are still in the thick of the AFC North. Betting on Cleveland has been a quick way to lose your money over the past 20 years, but the Dawg Pound is starting to make some noise in 2021.
12. Seattle Seahawks (4-3 ATS, -1.7 MOV)
Speaking of injured quarterbacks, the Seahawks are struggling to stay afloat without Russell Wilson. While QB Geno Smith has been shaky in replacement duties, the lower expectations have helped Seattle win two in a row ATS.
13. Detroit Lions (4-3 ATS, -10.3 MOV)
You may be surprised to find the 0-7 Lions so high on this list, but Detroit has actually been a profitable team against the spread this season. As double-digit underdogs nearly every week, the Lions are finally worth betting on this year.
14. New Orleans Saints (3-3 ATS, 6.5 MOV)
The Saints offense has slowed down with QB Jameis Winston at the helm, even with the help of All-Pro RB Alvin Kamara. The good news is that the defense is rolling on all cylinders and currently sits third in the NFL with just 16.8 points allowed per game.
15. Minnesota Vikings (3-3 ATS, 1.7 MOV)
Vikings QB Kirk Cousins has been one of the more underrated performers this season, throwing for 13 TD versus just 2 interceptions. If Minnesota can tighten things up on defense, we could see them pull off some betting upsets down the stretch.
16. Atlanta Falcons (3-3 ATS, -6.8 MOV)
They weren’t getting much betting interest after being blown out in the first two games of the year, but Atlanta has turned things around as of late. Rookie TE Kyle Pitts is becoming a matchup nightmare, putting up 16 catches and 282 yards over his past two games.
17. Tampa Bay Buccaneers (3-4 ATS, 12.3 MOV)
The defending Super Bowl champs are sitting comfortably atop the NFC South but have a losing record ATS. QB Tom Brady leads the NFL in passing yards and TDs but the Bucs need to address their shaky secondary to start covering for bettors.
18. New England Patriots (3-4 ATS, 5.6 MOV)
Rookie QB Mac Jones has played well, but the Pats betting record is not as it seems; two of their three wins this season came in blowout fashion over the incompetent New York Jets. Take away those two easy victories and the Pats are 1-4 ATS on the year.
19. Baltimore Ravens (3-4 ATS, 3.3 MOV)
When it comes to betting ATS, the Ravens have alternated between wins and losses through the first seven games. With QB Lamar Jackson leading one of the league’s best rushing units, look for Baltimore to heat up in November.
20. Denver Broncos (3-4 ATS, 1.9 MOV)
The Broncos were a great bet to start the season after going 3-0 ATS, but it appears those wins were simply the result of easy matchups against the Giants, Jaguars and Jets as they’ve gone 0-4 against the spread in the weeks since.
21. Carolina Panthers (3-4 ATS, 0.0 MOV)
The honeymoon is over for Sam Darnold and the Panthers; the former Jets QB led the Panthers to three straight wins to start the year but reality is beginning to sink in for a team with a talented roster but limitations at quarterback.
22. Philadelphia Eagles (3-4 ATS, -3.7 MOV)
It has been an up-and-down season so far for the Eagles, who are still trying to figure out if Jalen Hurts is their quarterback of the future. With RB Miles Sanders hurt heading into November, things could get ugly in Philly over the next few weeks.
23. New York Giants (3-4 ATS, -5.9 MOV)
The Giants have offered decent betting value this season, due in part to the improved play of QB Daniel Jones, but the upcoming month will be tough with WR Kenny Golladay and RB Saquon Barkley both out with injuries.
24. Chicago Bears (3-4 ATS, -8.7 MOV)
Different year but same old story for the Bears, who once again boast a talented defense but are hampered by anemic play at the quarterback position. It’s hard to blame rookie Justin Fields as he works behind one of the league’s worst O-lines.
25. Houston Texans (3-4 ATS, -15.1 MOV)
There’s no doubt the Texans are one of the worst teams in the NFL but they’re not always such a bad bet when you consider the huge point spreads they see nearly every week. With QB Tyrod Taylor returning to full health, we could see the Texans cover a lot more games.
26. Pittsburgh Steelers (2-4 ATS, -2.5 MOV)
It’s the end of an era as Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger has really struggled over the first half of the season, but Pittsburgh can still get the job done with the help of elite pass rusher TJ Watt and a defense that knows how to take care of business.
27. Jacksonville Jaguars (2-4 ATS, -9.3 MOV)
Things are looking up in Jacksonville after ending their 20-game losing streak with a win over the Dolphins in London. First overall pick Trevor Lawrence has a long way to go at quarterback but has already shown flashes of great potential.
28. Kansas City Chiefs (2-5 ATS, -2.1 MOV)
The Chiefs have struggled mightily as they lead the NFL with 17 giveaways while the defense is giving up over 400 yards per game. Betting on QB Patrick Mahomes is always tempting but may not be the safe investment it once was.
29. Miami Dolphins (2-5 ATS, -11.4 MOV)
The betting expectations were high for the Dolphins following last season’s 11-5 record against the spread, but Miami has now lost four straight ATS. Things could change in a hurry though with rumors of a Deshaun Watson trade in the works.
30. San Francisco 49ers (1-5 ATS, -2.3 MOV)
Injuries are once again dictating San Francisco’s season as the 49ers have had trouble keeping both QBs Jimmy Garoppolo and Trey Lance healthy, not to mention TE George Kittle and their entire stable of running backs.
31. New York Jets (1-5 ATS, -15.8 MOV)
The Jets would likely be at the bottom of this list if not for their recent bye week following a trip to London. With unproven QB Mike White now stepping in for injured first-round pick Zach Wilson, you should probably stay away from betting on the Jets.
32. Washington Football Team (1-6 ATS, -9.1 MOV)
There hasn’t been much great football in the nation’s capital as Washington has just one win against the spread heading into November. They’ll need a better effort from DE Chase Young and the entire defense if they want that to change.
