There are eight NFL teams on a winning streak of three games or longer. The best of the best are pulling away right now. Interested in getting on your own streak? Starting with Emory Hunt’s NFL picks makes a lot of sense. He’s on quite a run of his own.
Hunt played running back and has earned the nickname “The Czar of the Playbook.” As CEO of Football Gameplan, he watches more game film than a lot of coaches. That’s where he spots tendencies he can exploit.
In his last 30 NFL picks, Hunt has been dead-on 20 times — a robust 67 win percentage. That’s quite a streak! Those who have jumped on board with him have certainly been happy with their bottom line.
Hunt has released his top NFL picks for Week 11 over at SportsLine. Putting these three in a parlay will return a huge 6-1 payout. If you bet $100 on it, you would make $600. If you go big, it could be a life-changing bet.
We’ll give one away: Hunt is a big fan of the Browns covering a 7.5-point spread at home against the Jaguars. Cleveland hasn’t won a game, sitting at 0-9 and out of every race except the one for the No. 1 pick in the 2018 draft.
But the Browns aren’t as terrible as it looks in the standings. Four of their nine losses have come by a single field goal, including against the likes of playoff contenders Pittsburgh and Tennessee. Like this Sunday’s game, both of those narrow defeats were at Cleveland.
Cleveland’s defense ranks a solid 11th overall, but most important for this weekend, is No. 4 against the run, allowing just 86.4 yards per game.
Jacksonville has leaned on rookie RB Leonard Fournette for success. The Jaguars possess the top rushing attack in the NFL at 163 yards per game. With that in mind, Hunt sees this as a game in which the QBs will play a prominent role.
DeShone Kizer has ranked among the league’s worst quarterbacks, statistically speaking. He has just four TDs with 12 INTs, with a 54.4 QB rating. But there’s been marked improvement. The last two weeks, he’s thrown for 411 yards, one TD and one INT. Jacksonville, however, brings in the NFL’s top-ranked passing defense.
Meanwhile, Jags QB Blake Bortles will likely be without starting WR Allen Hurns (ankle), and fellow starting WR Marqise Lee (knee) is also banged up but expected to play.
In a matchup of Bortles vs. Kizer, Hunt likes the rookie to — at least — keep the Browns within a touchdown of the 6-3 Jaguars.
Hunt has also identified a home underdog that Vegas isn’t respecting. In fact, Hunt thinks they’ll win straight-up. He is also targeting a home team covering the spread in a key showdown. He’s sharing those picks over at SportsLine.
So what are the three NFL picks that Hunt is confident in that could return a huge 6/1 payout in Week 11 if you parlay them together? Visit SportsLine now to see which line oddsmakers have completely wrong, and which team isn’t getting enough respect, all from the expert on an astonishing 20-10 run on his NFL selections.
