NFL Luck Rankings: Week 11 Picks According to Expert Projections for Lions vs Giants, Colts vs Eagles, More article feature image

Our Action Network Luck Rankings are in for Week 11.

The unlucky team from the Action Network Luck Rankings are 63-53-2 (54.2%) against the spread (ATS) overall. That improves to 34-27 (55.7%) when teams differ by at least 10 places and 18-13 (58.1%) when the difference is 16 or more since we started tracking in Week 3.

Here are the matchups we’re targeting for Week 11.

NFL Luck Rankings – Week 11 Notable Games

Each team’s luck ranking is in parenthesis.

Nick Giffen: The Washington Commanders showed the formula for beating the Philadelphia Eagles: Run the ball.

Thankfully for the Colts, they should be able to do just that. Star running back Jonathan Taylor just ripped off 147 yards on the ground vs. the 24th ranked Raiders run defense by DVOA. Now, he faces an Eagles defense that’s ranked even worse in 28th.

That contrasts sharply with the Eagles top-ranked pass defense, making the Eagles a run funnel to exploit.

What is QuickSlip?

QuickSlip is an Action Network feature that allows users to automatically load their bet slip at FanDuel Sportsbook.


Sean Koerner: At some point the Giants’ luck is going to run out. While New York is 7-1 in one-possession games, the Lions are 2-4.

The Giants are coming off a Week 10 win that was the luckiest in the NFL by our expected score metric. They have also faced the third easiest schedule to date. When we use expected score and schedule adjust those results, the Giants actually come out lower than the Lions in third-order Pythagorean win percentage.


Nick Giffen: This seems like a great bounce-back spot for Houston, which suffered Week 10’s worst beat at the hands of the Luck Rankings’ No. 1 one team in the Giants.

Not only that, but the Texans face a Commanders team that may be perceived as better than they are after dismantling the previous week’s number one lucky team, Philadelphia.

These teams are nearly equal in third-order Pythagorean win percentage, so getting Houston as an underdog at home is nice.
