  • Former NFL lineman Geoff Schwartz offers his best Week 11 NFL bets based on the battles up front.
  • He's picking a side in Titans-Colts plus the historically high over/under in Chiefs-Rams.

Welcome back to the trench report! It’s slim-pickings with six teams on bye, but we’ve got two plays for Week 11, including an over/under bet for the high-powered offensive showdown on Monday Night Football between the Kansas City Chiefs and Los Angeles Rams.

Kansas City Chiefs at Los Angeles Rams

  • Spread: Rams -3
  • Over/Under: 63
  • Time: 8:15 p.m. ET
  • TV: ESPN

This one is simple. The Rams have a fantastic offensive line. They’re first in adjusted line yards and seventh in adjusted sack rate, per Football Outsiders.

Meanwhile, the Chiefs’ O-line ranks only 19th in adjusted line yards but ninth in yards per carry. What they do really well is protect the passer. Through 10 games, Patrick Mahomes has only been sacked 17 times.
