Week 10 ATS (Against the Spread) and Over Under Picks with MyBookie Head Oddsmaker, David Strauss
Week 10 of the NFL season got underway on Thursday night with the Indianapolis Colts defeating the Tennessee Titans in a critical AFC South matchup. That was just one of many big games on the schedule for this week.
Now that we have officially passed the midpoint point of the season, teams are in a position where they pretty much know exactly what needs to be done in the second half to make a serious run at the playoffs.
It is going to be fun to see if the teams at the top can maintain their momentum, while also looking out for a team or two that might get hot in the final weeks of the season.
For now, though, all we can do is focus on the games coming up this weekend, so let’s get right into our O/U picks for Week 10 so you can place your bets against their NFL odds.
Week 10 O/U Picks
Jacksonville Jaguars at Green Bay Packers (OVER 51)
While we all tend to focus on the battles at the top of the standings, it is worth noting that there are things going on down at the bottom, too. Most notably, we are looking at teams potentially tanking to finish last and get the first pick in the upcoming draft, which would likely mean landing QB Trevor Lawrence.
The Jacksonville Jaguars are very much in that conversation and look to be ready to take another pounding on the road in Green Bay this coming weekend. Aaron Rodgers and the Packers have been putting on a bit of an offensive clinic this season, so we would certainly expect them to run up the score in this one. The OVER has hit in 6 of the last 9 for the Jags, while the Packers have seen 7 of their last 10 go the same route.
Tampa Bay Buccaneers at Carolina Panthers (OVER 50 ½)
Just when it looked as though Tom Brady and the Buccaneers had slipped into high gear, they were driven off the road by the New Orleans Saints for the second time this season. The Buccaneers are going to need to try and shrug off that stunning 38-3 loss and find a way to get back on track quickly, as they are now behind the 8-ball a little in the NFC South.
This is by no means an easy one, though. The Panthers may have lost 4 in a row, but they have Christian McCaffrey back in the fold and are a team that can put points on the board. The downside is that their D needs work, which is why the OVER looks so tempting here. The OVER has hit in 14 of the last 20 for the Bucs, so another reason to consider this bet.
Baltimore Ravens at New England Patriots (OVER 43 ½)
This was always going to be a transition season for the Patriots after shipping Tom Brady out of town, but it has perhaps gone worse than expected. They struggled to get past the hapless New York Jets on Monday night and will now have a short week to prepare for the Baltimore Ravens.
While the Ravens have not been as explosive offensively as they were last season, this is still a very good football team. They have also been great on the road, winning 10-straight, so expect them to win again here. While the under has been trending for both of these teams, that seems to change when they go head to head, with 5 of their last 6 meetings going OVER. This point total is low enough to see the OVER hit again.
Week 10 ATS Picks
Many of the divisions are still in the too close to call category at the moment, so even the teams that are playing well and leading the way right now are well aware that they cannot take their foot off the gas. For now, let’s turn our attention to Week 10 and the ATS picks that we have made for the upcoming games so you can go ahead and bet on their NFL odds.
Week 10 ATS Picks for the 2020 Season | NFL Betting
LA Chargers at Miami Dolphins (-3)
There were some who thought that the Miami Dolphins may have pulled the trigger a little too quickly in naming Tua Tagovailoa as their starting QB a couple of weeks ago. It now looks like a brilliant move, as he has led his team to back to back wins, including an incredible shootout against the Arizona Cardinals this past weekend. He will try to go 3 for 3 this week when the Dolphins host the Chargers, who have a great young QB of their own in Justin Herbert. The Chargers, though, come into this one having gone just 4-9 in their last 13 games against the Dolphins, while Miami has now covered the spread in 6 of their last 7 games overall. I like Miami to win and cover and keep the good times rolling.
San Francisco 49ers at New Orleans Saints (-9)
While certainly not out of it in a tight divisional race in the West, it is increasingly looking as though the 49ers are about to join the growing list of teams that fail to make the playoffs the season following a Super Bowl loss. In fairness to the 49ers, they have been absolutely hammered by the injury bug this season. Things are not about to get any easier for them, as they will be on the road this weekend against a Saints team that has now won 5 in a row and who are coming off a blowout win over Brady and the Buccaneers. They have shown little mercy against lesser teams, covering in 5 of their last 6 games against teams with a losing record.
