NFL Week Ten Picks

November 15th, 2020

Well, this week’s off to a smashing start. Thanks to my gross overestimation of the Titans, I’m headed into Sunday’s game at an 0-1 deficit both straight up and against the spread. That’s fun.

Week nine was no great shakes for me either. I finished 9-5 straight up, 8-6 with the points to land at season records of 76-47-1 (.643) and 60-69-4 (.466) respectively.

Not sure there’s much more to be said at this point, except here’s what not to expect today and tomorrow.

Houston (+4) at Cleveland
I don’t know that the Browns are quite there yet, but they’re at least solidly average (and probably a bit better than that). The Texans are clearly awful. Cleveland by seven.

Washington (+3) at Detroit
What happens when you don’t have a defense and your opponent suddenly develops an offense? That’s right, you lose. Brand X by a field goal.

Jacksonville (+13.5) at Green Bay
Try not to look too closely at this one. Packers by 17.

Philadelphia (-4) at NY Giants
We’re halfway through the season and a win here would land the 2-7 Giants just behind the 3-4-1 Eagles for the NFC East title. So, yeah, it’s one of those. If New Jersey can keep it close enough to lean on their ground game, they can win this. And they kept it close in Philly a few weeks back. So I’m thinking Giants by three.

Tampa Bay (-6.5) at Carolina
The Bucs need to get right. The Panthers won’t make it as easy as some might expect, but the visitors should still manage a win. Tampa by four.

Denver (+3.5) at Las Vegas
I’m not entirely convinced that the Raiders have developed a defense. But that shouldn’t present too much of a problem this week since the Broncos don’t have an offense. Las Vegas by six.

LA Chargers (+1.5) at Miami
There’s a possibility that the Dolphins are turning into an actual football team. If they could only figure out how to stop the run they might be semi-dangerous. Miami by a point.

Buffalo (+2.5) at Arizona
When these teams are good, they’re very good. I think the Cards are bit more consistent. Arizona by a field goal.

Seattle (+2.5) at LA Rams
The Seahawks more than likely are the better team here. But not by all that much. And they’re playing a second straight road game. Rams by four.

San Francisco (+9.5) at New Orleans
There’s no mystery here. The Niners are in no condition to keep up with the Saints. New Orleans by 14.

Cincinnati (+7.5) at Pittsburgh
The Steelers have their quarterback. That’s about what you need to know. Pittsburgh by 10.

Baltimore (-7) at New England
The Ravens are a challenge for the Patriots when the Patriots are good. And the Patriots aren’t good. Baltimore by 13.

Minnesota (-3) at Chicago
This game almost looks like it matters even though it doesn’t. Bears by six.
