With the Atlanta Falcons remaining undefeated with a win over the Dallas Cowboys and the Houston Texans and the Chicago Bears both improving to 7-1 SU with double-digit wins last Sunday, the NFL’s top contenders seem to be solidified. Here’s a look at some of the best bets for Week 10.
Tampa Bay -3.0 vs. San Diego at 5Dimes
Don’t look now, but the Tampa Bay Buccaneers are suddenly one of the NFL’s hottest teams. With the emergence of rookie Doug Martin as an elite running back, the Bucs are averaging a staggering 36 points per game over their last four games and are 3-1 SU and ATS over that stretch. On the season, Tampa Bay is 6-2 ATS and hasn’t lost a game by more than seven points.
San Diego picked up its fourth win of the season both SU and ATS Sunday over the Kansas City Chiefs, but the Chiefs are historically bad. San Diego’s wins have come against Kansas City (two), Oakland, and Tennessee; three bad teams. San Diego is 4-7 SU and ATS in its last 11 road games, and on the road against a quality offense, look for the Chargers’ struggles to continue.
Seattle -6.5 vs. New York Jets at Pinnacle
Sometimes home field advantage means everything, and that could be the case when the Jets visit the Seahawks this Sunday. The Jets have struggled badly on the road recently with a 3-9 SU and 4-8 ATS record over their last 12 road games. Seattle, meanwhile, is one of the NFL’s best home teams with a 12-2 ATS record over its last 14 home games and a 6-1 SU and 7-0 ATS record over its last seven.
Also, on paper, this looks like a good matchup for the Seahawks. The Jets have a weak offense averaging just 21 points per game while the Seahawks have one of the league’s best defenses allowing just 17.1 points per game. The Jets have also struggled against the rush and Marshawn Lynch is one of the NFL’s top rushers. Seattle should take this one by a touchdown or more.
Other lines available this week (all at Pinnacle) include Indianapolis -3 at Jacksonville, Detroit -1 at Minnesota, Oakland +9.5 at Baltimore, Tennessee +6 at Miami, the NY Giants -4 at Cincinnati, Denver -3.5 at Carolina, Buffalo +11 at New England, Atlanta -1 at New Orleans, St. Louis +11 at San Francisco, Dallas -1 at Philadelphia, Houston +1 at Chicago, and Kansas City +11.5 at Pittsburgh.
