(The rest of) NFL Week 10 picks

by Dan Bilicki In: Football, Picks

The lines are from 5Dimes and the home teams are in CAPS.

Pittsburgh -3 over CINCINNATI
The Steelers will be fired up after that late loss to Baltimore on Sunday night. This is the Bengals first huge test too.

Denver +3 over KANSAS CITY
The Chiefs aren’t as bad as they played last week against Miami, but this Bronco running game with the option threat is really interesting.

INDIANAPOLIS +3 over Jacksonville
This is the Colts biggest and best shot at not going winless this season and I say they take it.

Buffalo +5.5 over DALLAS
Even as a fan, I can’t trust the Cowboys to win big against a good team.

Houston -3 over TAMPA BAY
I don’t know how the Texans are winning without hardly any semblance of a passing game, but they’re doing it.

Tennessee +3.5 over CAROLINA
Cam Newton is amazing, but he scares me as a favourite.

Washington +4 over MIAMI
You’re trying to tell me that the Redskins are worse than a one-win team that has Matt Moore at QB?

New Orleans (pick) over ATLANTA
If there’s one game that the Saints get absolutely fired up for every year, it’s at Atlanta.

Detroit +1.5 over CHICAGO
I don’t believe in these Bears. Don’t know why, but I just don’t.

St. Louis +1.5 over CLEVELAND
I seriously hope that nobody is forced to watch this game. Pure torture.

PHILADELPHIA (no line) over Arizona
Kevin Kolb wouldn’t be able to exact revenge even if he was playing and Josh Skelton is just bad.

SEATTLE +7 over Baltimore
This feels like a big let-down game for the Ravens, through and through.

New York Giants +3 over SAN FRANCISCO
For some reason, Eli Manning always plays better when the stakes are highest and he’s counted out.

NEW YORK JETS (pick) over New England
When your defence is that strong to begin with, is cutting players every week really the way to go, Bill Belichick?

Minnesota +14.5 over GREEN BAY
The Vikings aren’t two touchdowns worse than the Packers. Plus, Monday Night divisional tilts are usually close.

This week: 0-1
Last week: 7-7
This season: 65-64-2
