2017 NFL Week 10 Preview

Facebooktwittergoogle_plusmail

The race for the NFL Playoffs continues this weekend and there are a number of divisions where there are very little between the leading contenders.

There are a host of big games this weekend and it really would not surprise if this ended up being a big week of upsets.

We have analysed every game set to take place in the NFL this weekend and our complete 2017 NFL Week 10 tips can be found below.

Arizona Cardinals Vs Seattle Seahawks

Friday November 10, 12:25am, University Of Phoenix Stadium

The Arizona Cardinals have the home-ground advantage, but it is the Seattle Seahawks that will start this clash as clear favourites.

Winning away from home has been something of an issue for Seattle and they have won only two of their past four games as home favourites.

Arizona have struggled for consistency this season, but they have won four of their past six games in front of their home fans.

The problem for Arizona has been stringing together back-to-back wins and they have only only one of their past seven games on the back of a victory.

This is a game that the market looks to have got just about right and I am happy to stay out from a betting standpoint.

No Bet

Tampa Bay Buccaneers Vs New York Jets

Monday November 13, 5:00am, Raymond James Stadium

The New York Jets will start this clash with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers as narrow favourites.

This season continues to go from bad to worse for Tampa Bay and they have now lost five games in a row.

Raymond James Stadium does give them the chance to return to winning form and they have won two of their past three games as home underdogs for a clear profit.

The New York Jets ended their own losing streak with a win over the Buffalo Bills, but they have won only two of their past six games on the road and they have been a losing betting play in this scenario.

Tampa Bay will never have a better chance to return to winning form.

Buffalo Bills Vs New Orleans Saints

Monday November 13, 5:00am, Ralph Wilson Stadium

The New Orleans Saints have won six games on the trot and they will start this clash with the Buffalo Bills as clear favourites.

New Orleans’ improvement on defence has been one of the big stories in the NFL this season and they are genuine contenders in the NFC.

The Saints have won their past two games as away favourites and they have covered the line in both of these games.

Buffalo produced one of their worst performances of the season to go down to the New York Jets last weekend and this is a tougher challenge.

The Bills have won six of their past eight games at home, but their record against the line is only middling.

New Orleans can continue their winning ways and cover the line in the process.

Back New Orleans To Beat The Line (-2.5 Points)

Detroit Lions Vs Cleveland Browns

Monday November 13, 5:00am, Ford Field

The Detroit Lions are the shortest-priced favourites in the NFL this weekend.

Detroit have won three of their past four games as home favourites, but they are only a middling 2-2 against the line in this scenario.

The Cleveland Browns are still chasing their first win of the season and the number 1 draft pick looks set to be theirs once again.

Cleveland have covered the line in only four of their past 14 games and it is impossible to have any faith in them.

Detroit should win this clash, but there is no value at their current price.

No Bet

Chicago Bears Vs Green Bay Packers

Monday November 13, 5:00am, Soldier Field

This will be the first time in several seasons that the Chicago Bears will start a game against the Green Bay Packers as favourites.

The Bears have started only one game as favourites over the past 12 months and they lost this game, while they have won just one of their past eight games against the Packers.

It has been a tough time for the Packers since Aaron Rodgers went down with a season-ending injury and you can’t have any faith in them from a betting standpoint.

This is another game that doesn’t represent any value whatsoever from a punting perspective.

No Bet

Jacksonville Jaguars Vs Los Angeles Chargers

Monday November 13, 5:00am, EverBank Field

This is a huge game for the Jacksonville Jaguars and they will start it as clear favourites.

Jacksonville have recorded two impressive wins on the trot, but they have still won only two of their past five games as home favourites and they are a tough team to trust.

The Los Angeles Chargers had their winning run ended by the New England Patriots last weekend, but they were still far from disgraced.

Los Angeles are capable of winning on the road and there really isn’t as much between these two teams as the current betting market suggests.

Back Los Angeles To Win @ $2.70

Washington Redskins Vs Minnesota Vikings

Monday November 13, 5:00am, FedEx Field

There is very little between these two teams in betting.

The Minnesota Vikings have recorded four wins on the trot and they have been one of the most underrated teams in the NFL this season.

Minnesota have won their past three games as away favourites and their record against the line is just as good.

The Redskins returned to winning form with an upset win over the Seattle Seahawks, but winning games back-to-back has been an issue.

Washington have won only one of their past three games as home underdogs and have also been a losing betting play against the line in this scenario.

Minnesota are excellent value and they are one of the safest betting plays of the week.

Back Minnesota To Win @ $1.80

Indianapolis Colts Vs Pittsburgh Steelers

Monday November 13, 5:00am, Lucas Oil Field

The Pittsburgh Steelers will start this clash with the Indianapolis Colts as clear favourites.

Pittsburgh have won six of their past eight games and they are one of the most reliable betting sides in the NFL – they have won seven of their past eight games as away favourites and they are 6-2 against the line in this scenario.

The Colts returned to winning form with an upset win over the Houston Texans, but this is a much tougher assignment.

Indianapolis have lost their past three games as home underdogs and they are 1-2 against the line in this scenario.

This is a game that the Pittsburgh Steelers should win comfortably and the line of ten points will not be enough.

Los Angeles Rams Vs Houston Texans

Monday November 13, 8:05am, Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum

The Los Angeles Rams will go into this clash with the Houston Texans as extremely short-priced favourites.

Los Angeles have recorded two dominant wins on the trot and they have been the big improvers in the NFL this season.

In saying that, they have still won only two of their past six games as home favourites and it is tough to get them as short as their current quote.

The Texans clearly missed DeShaun Watson last weekend and they went down to the Indianapolis Colts in disappointing fashion.

Houston have won only three of their past nine games as away underdogs, but they are 5-4 against the line in this scenario.

There isn’t as much between these two sides as the current betting market suggests and I am keen to back Houston with the big start of 12 points.

Back Houston To Beat The Line (+12 Points)

San Francisco 49ers Vs New York Giants

Monday November 13, 8:25am, Levi's Stadium

The San Francisco 49ers and the New York Giants have two of the worst records in the NFL this season.

It is the Giants that will start this clash as clear favourites and it is tough to back a side that is coming into this clash on the back of a heavy loss at the hands of the Los Angeles Rams.

I continue to make the argument that the 49ers are a better team than their current record suggests and this their chance to record their first win of the season.

In saying that, it is still impossible to have any faith in the 49ers and they have been a losing betting play across every single metric.

This is a game that I don’t want to get involved in.

No Bet

Atlanta Falcons Vs Dallas Cowboys

Monday November 13, 8:25am, Mercedes-Benz Stadium

This is one of the games of the weekend and is vital for both teams that will be in the mix for the wildcard berth in the NFL Playoffs.

The Dallas Cowboys produced their best performance of the season to beat the Kansas City Chiefs last weekend, but it is still the Atlanta Falcons that will start this clash as clear favourites.

Atlanta have lost three of their past four games and they have been a losing betting play as home favourites, but they are 5-4 against the line in this scenario.

Winning away from home has not been an issue for the Dallas Cowboys and they have won five of their past eight games on the road for a small profit.

There really isn’t a great deal between these two teams and the Cowboys do represent serious value at their current price of $2.25.

Denver Broncos Vs New England Patriots

Monday November 13, 12:30am, Mile High

The New England Patriots will start this clash with the Denver Broncos as clear favourites.

New England continue to be the most reliable betting team in the NFL and they have won their past eight games as away favourites, while they are 6-2 against the line in this scenario.

The Denver Broncos have lost four games in a row and even their defence has started to struggle in recent weeks.

Denver leaked over 50 points against the Philadelphia Eagles and they will have a tough time stopping New England in this clash.

Back New England To Beat The Line (-7 Points)

Carolina Panthers Vs Miami Dolphins

Tuesday November 14, 12:30am, Bank Of America Stadium

The Carolina Panthers have won two games in a row and they will go into this clash with the Miami Dolphins as clear favourites.

Carolina have struggled from a betting perspective this season and they have been a losing play across just about every metric over the past 12 months – they have covered the line in only one of their past five games as home favourites.

Miami head into this game on the back of poor losses against the Baltimore Ravens and the Oakland Raiders, but they are a side that has made a habit of winning when they are least expected to.

The Dolphins have won four of their past seven games as away underdogs and they are a great bet to cover the line with a very healthy start.

Back Miami To Beat The Line (+9.5 Points)


2016/2017

The rivalry between the Baltimore Ravens and Cleveland Browns is one of the most complicated in the history of sport and they do battle again on Friday morning.

There are a number of meetings between divisional rivals in week 10 of the 2016 NFL season and the highlight could be the key AFC South clash between the Jacksonville Jaguars and the Houston Texans.

The Pittsburgh Steelers and Dallas Cowboys are two of the most successful franchises in NFL history and they have a rare clash on Monday morning before the New England Patriots host the Seattle Seahawks in a rematch of Super Bowl 49.

You can find all our NFL week 10 tips below!

Baltimore Ravens Vs Cleveland Browns

Friday November 11, 11:25am, MT&T Bank Stadium

Baltimore Ravens 28 - Cleveland Browns 7

The Cleveland Browns season continues to go from bad to worse and they are at long odds to record their first win of the season.

Cleveland have lost their past eight games as away underdogs and they are an average 3-5 against the line in this scenario.

Baltimore ended a losing streak of their own with a quality performance against Pittsburgh and they really should be able to make it two wins on the trot.

Unfortunately, Baltimore are a tough side to trust from a betting standpoint and they have won just two of their past five games as home favourites, while they are 1-1-3 against the line in this scenario.

Baltimore should win this game comfortably, but it is tough to get them as short as their current quote.

No Bet

Tennessee Titans Vs Green Bay Packers

Monday November 14, 4:00am, Nissan Stadium

Tennessee Titans 47 - Green Bay Packers 25

This is a must-win clash for the Green Bay Packers, who go into this clash on the back of two straight losses.

The Packers will still start this clash as narrow favourites and they have won four of their past five games as away favourites for a clear profit, while they have an identical record against the line.

Tennessee lost a high-scoring clash to the San Diego Chargers last weekend, but there were still some positives to take from the performance.

The problem for the Titans is that they have lost their past five games as home underdogs for a clear loss, while they have an identical record against the line.

Green Bay will be able to win to winning form and the line of 2.5 points should not be enough.

Back Green Bay To Beat The Line (-2.5 Points)

Washington Redskins Vs Minnesota Vikings

Monday November 14, 4:00am, FedEx Field

Washington Redskins 26 - Minnesota Vikings 20

The Minnesota Vikings have regressed significantly following their strong start to the season and they will go into this clash as underdogs

Minnesota have now lost three games on the trot and they are losing control of what was previous a firm grasp on the NFC North.

The Vikings have won four of their past five games as away underdogs for a clear profit, while they are 4-1 against the line in this scenario.

Washington and Cincinnati played out a stalemate last weekend, but the Redskins have still won four of their past six games.

Their record as home favourites does not inspire confidence – they have won just one of their past four games as home favourites for a clear loss.

Minnesota have an excellent chance to return to winning form and they are one of the best value bets of the weekend.

Back Minnesota To Win @ $2.30

Tampa Bay Buccaneers Vs Chicago Bears

Monday November 14, 4:00am, Raymond James Stadium

Tampa Bay Buccaneers 36 - Chicago Bears 10

Carolina Panthers Vs Kansas City Chiefs

Monday November 14, 4:00am, Bank Of American Stadium

Carolina Panthers 17 - Kansas City Chiefs 20

This is one of the most interesting games of the weekend.

Carolina have returned to winning form with wins over Arizona and Los Angeles and they will go into this clash as clear favourites.

The Panthers have won seven of their past nine games as home favourites for a clear profit and they have an identical against the line.

Kansas City made it four wins on the trot with their narrow victory over Jacksonville and they are only a game behind in the highly competitive AFC West.

The Chiefs have won one of their past three games as away underdogs for a loss and they have the same record against the line.

I expect Carolina to be able to grind out a victory and cover the line of three points.

Back Carolina To Beat The Line (-3 Points)

Philadelphia Eagles Vs Atlanta Falcons

Monday November 14, 4:00am, Lincoln Financial Field

Philadelphia Eagles 24 - Atlanta Falcons 15

This is another very competitive clash and the market finds it tough to split the Philadelphia Eagles and the Atlanta Falcons.

Philadelphia suffered their second straight loss at the hands of an NFC East rival against the New York Giants, but they will still go into this clash as narrow favourites.

The Eagles have won just two of their past five games as home favourites and they have lack composure at key moments in the past fortnight.

Atlanta made it two wins on the trot with their high-scoring victory over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and they continue to set the pace in the NFC South.

The Falcons have won four of their past seven games as away underdogs and their record away from home over the past 12 months has been strong.

Atlanta have been an outstanding betting team all season long and I am not willing to jump off them this week.

Back Atlanta To Win @ $1.95

New York Jets Vs Los Angeles Rams

Monday November 14, 4:00am, MetLife Stadium

New York Jets 6 - Los Angeles Rams 9

The clash between the New York Jets and the Los Angeles Rams is unlikely to have Playoffs consequences, but it is still an interesting clash from a Playoffs perspective.

New York went down to Miami last weekend, but they will still go into this clash as narrow favourites.

The Jets have actually won three of their past four games as home favourites and they have an identical record against the line.

Los Angeles made it four losses on the trot when they went down to the Carolina Panthers and they are sinking to another season of mediocrity.

The Rams have actually won three of their past six games as away underdogs for a big profit, while they are 3-1-2 against the line in this scenario.

This is a game that the market looks to have gotten just about right and I am happy to stay out from a betting standpoint.

No Bet

New Orleans Saints Vs Denver Broncos

Monday November 14, 4:00am, Mercedes-Benz Superdome

New Orleans Saints 23 - Denver Broncos 25

The New Orleans Saints kept themselves in playoffs calculations with another high-scoring victory over the San Francisco 49ers and they will go into this clash as favourites.

Favourtism is not a position that has suited the New Orleans Saints over the past 12 months and they have won just two of their past five games in this position.

Denver lost their crucial AFC West clash with the Oakland Raiders and they need to win this game to keep in touch with their divisional rivals.

The Broncos have won four of their past seven games on the road and they have beaten the line in their past two games as away underdogs.

Backing Denver as underdogs has been a highly profitable play over the past couple of seasons and they are good value at their current quote of $2.10.

Back Denver To Win @ $2.10

Jacksonville Jaguars Vs Houston Texans

Monday November 14, 4:00am, EverBank Field

Jacksonville Jaguars 21 - Houston Texans 24

Houston have struggle to string together back-to-back wins this season and they have the chance to do that against the Jacksonville Jaguars.

The Texans have won their past seven games as favourites and their record against the line is this scenario is a profitable 6-1.

Jacksonville suffered their third straight loss on the trot against Kansas City and this has really been a season.

The Jaguars have lost their past two games as away underdogs and it is very tough to see them ending that streak against the Texans.

Houston should win this clash comfortably and they are a safe bet to cover the line of 1.5 points without an issue.

Back Houston To Beat The Line (-1.5 Points)

San Diego Chargers Vs Miami Dolphins

Monday November 14, 7:05am, Qualcomm Stadium

San Diego Chargers 24 - Miami Dolphins 31

San Diego returned to winning form against Tennessee and they will start this clash with the Miami Dolphins as clear favourites.

The Chargers have won two of their past three games as home favourites over the past 12 months and have the same record against the line.

Miami have won three games on the trot heading into this clash and they have found some form in the middle of the season.

The Dolphins have won just one of their past five games as away underdogs for a clear loss and their recent against the line is 2-3.

San Diego are simply a better team than the Dolphins and they should be able to cover the line of 3.5 points.

Back San Diego To Cover The Line (-3.5 Points)

Pittsburgh Steelers Vs Dallas Cowboys

Monday November 14, 7:25am, Heinz Field

Pittsburgh Steelers 30 - Dallas Cowboys 35

The Dallas Cowboys have won seven games on the trot, but they will still go into this clash with the Pittsburgh Steelers as clear underdogs.

Dallas have won three of their past five games as away underdogs for a clear profit and they are playing with a great deal of confidence.

This is the toughest task that they have faced for some time and Pittsburgh have a most impressive record as home favourites.

Pittsburgh have won their past six games in this scenario and their record against the line is a most impressive 5-1.

This will be one of the most exciting games of the weekend, but the market looks to have got it just about right and I am happy to stay out from a betting standpoint.

No Bet

Arizona Cardinals Vs San Francisco 49ers

Monday November 14, 7:25am, University Of Phoenix Stadium

Arizona Cardinals 23 - San Francisco 49ers 20

The Arizona Cardinals are the shortest-priced favourites of the weekend and should have no problems accounting for the San Francisco 49ers.

Arizona have won six of their past ten games as home favourites for a loss, while they are a very poor 3-1-7 against the line in this scenario.

San Francisco suffered their seventh straight loss when they went down to New Orleans last weekend and they continue to struggle through a horror season.

The 49ers have won just one of their past seven games as away underdogs and their record against the line is just as poor.

There is little doubt that Arizona will win this clash, but it is tough to get them as short as their current quote of $1.11.

No Bet

New England Patriots Vs Seattle Seahawks

Monday November 14, 11:30am, Gillette Stadium

New England Patriots 24 - Seattle Seahawks 31

The rematch of Super Bowl 49 is set to be a fascinating clash.

The New England Patriots have been just about flawless so far this season and it is no surprise that they will start this clash as clear favourites.

New England have won six of their past eight games as home favourites for a clear favourites, while they are 5-1-2 against the line.

Seattle produced an improved offensive effort against the Buffalo Bills to return to winning form and they are in control in the NFC West.

They have won just one of their past four games as away underdogs and their record against the line in this scenario is 2-2.

New England are deserving favourites, but Seattle are a better team than their odds suggest and they are a good bet to cover the line with a start of 7.5 points.

Back Seattle To Beat The Line (+7.5 Points)

New York Giants Vs Cincinnati Bengals

Tuesday November 15, 11:30am, MetLife Stadium

New York Giants 21 - Cincinnati Bengals 20

There is very little separating these two teams in current betting.

The Cincinnati Bengals will start this clash as narrow favourites following their overtime thriller with Washington last weekend, but their record is fairly unconvincing as home favourites and they have actually been a losing betting proposition in this scenario.

New York head into this clash on the back of three straight victories and they need to win this clash to remain in the NFC Playoffs mix.

The Giants have lost their past three games as home underdogs for a clear loss, but they are 2-1 against the line in this situation.

The market looks to have got this clash just about right and I am more than happy to stay out from a betting standpoint.
