Action Network NFL analyst C Jackson Cowart is in his first season in The Post’s Bettor’s Guide. Here are his best bets for Week 11. All lines are provided by BetMGM and were accurate at time of writing.
NEW ORLEANS SAINTS (-3) vs. Los Angeles Rams
If this is what the Rams’ offense looks like with Cooper Kupp, I can only imagine how dysfunctional it’ll look without him. Los Angeles’ superstar receiver won’t be on the field Sunday, erasing almost 30 percent of that production from a unit already averaging just 14.5 points over its last six games.

Kupp has been a clear security blanket for Matthew Stafford, who sat out last week with a concussion and is still questionable for this one. This is just too tough of a spot to bet the short-handed road underdogs in a hostile environment.
DENVER BRONCOS vs. Las Vegas Raiders: Under 41.5 points
We backed the Raiders last week, but their feckless offense came back to bite us in a shocking loss to the Colts in Jeff Saturday’s debut. That’ll only help us this week in what should be a low-scoring affair against the rival Broncos.
Betting on the NFL?
Through its first nine games, Denver has gone 8-1 to the Under thanks to the NFL’s worst scoring offense (14.6 ppg) and best scoring defense (16.6 ppg). Those margins have helped the Broncos fly well below their total most weeks, so don’t be surprised if this game finishes in the low 30s.
Last week: 0-2. Seahawks (L), Raiders (L).
