Lorenzo’s Lock is a weekly series with our partner Gannett Media and part of Bet For the Win. It includes 3 picks for the upcoming NFL weekend.
NFL week 11 is here and so is Lorenzo with his picks, brought to you by Tipico Sportsbook! After an entertaining Week 10, Lorenzo is back to deliver his locks of the week.
COMMANDING THROUGH HOUSTON
Lorenzo is starting things off with a team that is somehow still under the radar despite being super consistent. The Commanders have been buzzing ever since Taylor Heinicke took over as QB. Before he was QB they were only averaging 17 points per game, now they are averaging 22.3 points per game, thanks to Heinickes performances. Washington keeps getting undervalued and have been able to cover four of their last four, and the one they didn’t cover was a push. On top of that, the Texans have lost their past four and only covered in one of those games.
HURTS WILL HURT
Moving on to a team that’s trending in the right direction. The Bears are a completely different team when Justin Fields is in him element as a dual threat QB. The Bears are the only team in NFL history to put up 29 points in three consecutive games and lose them all. That tells us their offense is clicking and that a few adjustments on defense could lead to them dominating the Falcons. Atlanta has failed to cover in their four games and have lost three of those games.
Lorenzo is locking in Bears to win outright.
JETS FLY HIGH
Finally, Lorenzo’s last lock comes from a game where both teams are fresh off a bye. Even though the Jets lost and didn’t cover in their last matchup against the Patriots, Lorenzo sees this as a good buy-low opportunity. Zach Wilson threw three interceptions in that loss against the Patriots, which likely won’t happen again. The Jets' defense is great at shutting down opponents’ offense in their own half, helping them keep games a lot closer than they should be. Which is a big reason why the Jets are 4-0 against the spread on the road this season. If the jets avoid bad turnovers, Lorenzo sees them covering and winning this game. Lorenzo loves that three-point cushion and is fading New England at home.
Lorenzo is locking in New York -3.
