First of all, Happy Thanksgiving everyone!

We’ve got some time off and plenty of football to watch this weekend, including the Las Vegas Raiders taking on one of their most hated rivals, the Kansas City Chiefs, as significant home underdogs on DraftKings Sportsbook. We’re also in crunch time for our Silver and Black Pride Pick’em competition with just seven weeks to go in the regular season.

DraftKings Sportsbook also offers lines and prop bets for every game during the long weekend. For a few other notable contests, the Jacksonville Jaguars are slight favorites on the road against the Houston Texans in a battle for the AFC South lead, and Derek Carr and the New Orleans Saints are slight road underdogs against the Atlanta Falcons in a crucial NFC South matchup.

Of course, Silver and Black Pride’s Pick’em competition is live and active as below is a look at where our writers stand after Week 11.

  1. Bill Williamson 112-52 (68%)
  2. Ray Aspuria 95-55 (63%)
  3. Matt Holder 99-65 (60%)

FINALLY! I’ve been in a terrible rut recently that has basically eliminated me from the competition, but your boy broke through with a strong 10-4 performance in Week 11. That was the best among our writers for the week as Bill went 9-5 and Ray was 8-6. Now it’s just a matter of digging out of a 13-game hole...

Week 11 Top Pickers

torindorn4life 11-3

Just Win Baby 11-3

Tatum31 11-3

Sir Whiskey Ray 11-3

Mashed You 11-3

We have a new leader (kind of)! Chrome&Onyx has been in sole possession of first place for several weeks now. However, Dirty Harry had 10 winners last week to Onyx’s nine to tie up the top of the standings. We also have 12 people who are within two picks of each other so the community crown is still very much up for grabs.

Big shoutouts are in order for the five people above who had 11 correct picks last week. That’s impressive and we also had 14 community members go 10-4, so another impressive outing by the group as a whole.

Best of luck to everyone! Don’t forget to make your picks and may your picks be good!
