NFL Football Picks
The Cowboys’ have played six teams who rank in the bottom half of defensive scoring and only one team that ranks in the top ten (Saints No. 10). This week they’ll play the No. 4 team in that metric who should be fully motivated after last week’s loss against the Chiefs.
Green Bay’s performance in L.A. last week was mind-boggling. They didn’t show up at all, which leads one to wonder if they weren’t distracted by all the hot chicks and sunshine in Tinsel Town (They have neither in Wisconsin!) Nonetheless, we expect them to get back on track vs. the Panthers Sunday.
The public will be one-siding the Ravens this week vs. a Bengals team who appears to have thrown in the towel. Andy Dalton has been benched and injuries have wrecked the Bungles season. However, a double digit division underdog? Laying this many points vs. a divisional opponent hasn’t been a good bet in years past.
I keep waiting for the San Francisco 49ers to let up but it just hasn’t happened yet. Seattle comes to town for a Week 10 MNF battle and will be a formdiable opponent. How will the loss of Kwon Alexander affect the Niners strong defensive unit. Seattle has been gaining steam, but shows cracks on the road at times. This is going to be an excellent game!
Detroit has lost four of their last five, but they have been competitive with three of the losses by one score. That said, this week the line is under a field goal, so a close loss may not get you the spread win. Read on to see who Loot is betting and why.
The Rams seem to have gotten back on track, averaging 30+ in four of their last five games. Pittsburgh played like garbage on MNF a couple weeks ago and barely got by a beat up Colts team last week. Mason Rudolph has the worst arm of any QB in football. The Rams look like as good of a bet as any in Week 10!
The Dolphins finally won last week! While it’s not probably they get it done on the road in Week 10 vs. the Colts, it COULD happen. Indy is banged up at almost all of their skill positions. In the end, they’ll probably get trampled by Marlon Mack but keep it close enough to cover and payoff at the window.
The Chiefs haven’t stopped the run and that’s where the Titans thrive. Expect Derrick Henry to push 30 touches in a game where we also believe KC is rushing Mahomes back too soon. The Titans are a barking dog and easily Week 10 NFL’s underdog bet of the week!
If you threw two turds at the wall, which would make a bigger splatter? We shall see Sunday as the G-Men and J-E-T-S meet up for a Week 10 Super BOWEL! While only down two scores last week vs. Dallas, the Giants pretty much gave up mid-way through the fourth quarter. The Jets are hot garbage as well. It’s Spongebob vs. Pee Wee Herman here.
This game may come down to whether the Bills can stop the Browns run game if they can’t then we may see a result similar to the Buffalo’s blowout loss to the Eagles. If they do, it may be a long day for the home team. Read on to see where Loot’s money is landing.
Don’t sleep on the Arizona Cardinals! They’re getting healthier, Kyler Murray is gaining experience and the bookmaker has conveniently built himself in (2) key numbers in +3 and +4 (not a coincidence!) The Bucs put up a nice fight vs. Seattle but are not a good football team. This game should stay close throughout. Great underdog bet value here!
Week 10 TNF features a pair of California teams gaining momentum. Seeing the Bolts stomp the Pack was somewhat mind-boggling and the Raiders beating up a semi-hot Lions team was also against public consensus. This game will likely come down to whether or not Philip Rivers can complete long passes vs. a weak Oakland secondary. You will also need to check the status of Oak RB Josh Jacobs before betting on this one!
The Pokes bring a five game winning streak vs. the G-Men and there’s no indication that will get any better as the NYG have struggled mightily vs. stiff competition as evidenced by them playing four teams so far this year that should make the playoffs – Dallas, New England, Buffalo and Minnesota, in which they didn’t cover the spread against any of those teams and lost by an average of 16 points.
Patriots coach Bill Belichick is a master of taking away the other team’s strength. We fully expect his gameplan to be to stop Lamar Jackson’s run game, forcing him to pass more vs. New England’s stingy secondary. With the Pats being 8-0 and 6-2 ATS, this -3.5 line looks like an easy bet-win-cover.
In what I believe is the Best Bet of Week 9 NFL, the Lions head to the Black Hole to take on the Raiders as a short +2 underdog. The Lions are one of the most improved teams in the NFL this season, despite their .500 record.
The Bucs stake claim to the “mind boggling point spread of the week” as they’re getting +6.5 vs. a Seattle team that just about got backdoored last Sunday and then had to fly coast to coast back home. This is way too many points in a game where Tampa Bay actually matches up very well with the Seahawks of Seattle.
