NFL Week 10 picks

by Dan Bilicki In: Football, Picks

The lines are from Vegas and the home teams are in CAPs.

CINCINNATI -6 over Cleveland

It takes a lot to have the fourth-worst quarterbacking day in NFL history. Andy Dalton looked absolutely awful and I’m not sure why the Bengals even continued to call enough passes for him to get 10-for-33. Ugly.

JACKSONVILLE +6.5 over Dallas

With Tony Romo likely playing and the Cowboys needing a win, I see them pulling out a close one, but not covering.

DETROIT -2.5 over Miami

Getting Megatron back and motivated should push the Lions over the top of the frisky Dolphins.

Kansas City (pk) over BUFFALO

The Chiefs are picking up steam and the Bills running game should suffer in this one.

San Francisco +5 over NEW ORLEANS

The Niners have a decent record in the Big Easy and will be fired up after that tough loss to the Rams.

BALTIMORE -10 over Tennessee

The Titans are a wreck and the Ravens are dynamite at home.

Pittsburgh -4.5 over NEW YORK JETS

I wouldn’t bet against Big Ben throwing for six touchdowns for the third week in a row with this matchup.

Atlanta -1 over TAMPA BAY

The Falcons completely destroyed the Bucs earlier this season and the Bucs seem to think that going back to Josh McCown will be the answer here – I don’t.

OAKLAND +12.5 over Denver

The Raiders did OK in Seattle last week, enough to think that this line is too high for a home dog, even if this is a mismatch.

ARIZONA -8 over St. Louis

The Cardinals are starting to look like a good, consistent Super Bowl contender. Could we actually see a host team in the big game?

New York Giants +10.5 over SEATTLE

The Seahawks just aren’t the same this season. If the Raiders can cover in Seattle, so can the Giants.

Chicago +8 over GREEN BAY

Can you really give eight points to a desperate team in a division matchup coming off of a bye week?

PHILADELPHIA -7 over Carolina

Is it completely wrong to think that Mark Sanchez might actually be an upgrade over the turnover-prone Nick Foles?

Last week: 9-4

This season: 72-61-1
