Week 10 odds to consider:
- Seattle Seahawks at Los Angeles Rams – Seahawks +2.5 and the Game total O/U 54.5 –Seattle was just destroyed on the road against Buffalo 44-34. Their defense, specifically the secondary, was exploited by an up and coming offense. Seattle currently has the worst pass defense in the NFL. This is a good thing for the gambling public. We can expect teams to attack Seattle through the air going forward. Teams with a lot of playmakers will attempt to turn games into track meets. The Rams are such a team. Expect a high scoring, back and forth game. I don’t see 54.5 points being a high enough total to be cautious about. As far as taking Seattle at +2.5 – My thoughts are it’s Russell Wilson vs Jared Goff – who would you take? With the spread being this close, Vegas is saying that these teams are evenly matched. The Rams are coming off of 10 days of rest and will have a solid gameplan. Seattle is coming off a big loss in which Russell Wilson turned the ball over four times. I’ll take a pissed off Russell Wilson against anyone, especially when you consider that Wilson is 24-12-2 ATS after a loss and 23-9-2 ATS as a straight-up underdog.
- Houston Texans at Cleveland Browns – O/U 45.5 – This is 100% weather-related. The game total dropped from 55 to 45.5 from Monday. This is due to the weather predicted for Sunday’s kickoff. Cleveland weather is expected to be around 40 degrees with a 20% chance of wet weather. However, the concerning factor for this game is 28 mph wind gusts throughout. In Week 8, Cleveland played in similar conditions against Las Vegas, and those teams combined for just 22 points. If you are a believer in the weather, the Under is perfect for you this week. If there happens to be a significant change to the forecast keep in mind that both teams have an up-tempo offense and this is the healthiest the Browns have been all season.
- Los Angeles Chargers at Miami Dolphins – Chargers +1.5 – This is more gut than data related. Justin Herbert is playing lights out and at some point, the Chargers are going to find a way to win a close game. The Chargers come in with the leagues 7th best passing offense DVOA (Defense-Value-Over-Average) and are 5th in yards per pass. With a depleted group of RBs expect Herbert to air it out 40+ times. Miami’s defense is ranked 23rd in touchdowns allowed, giving up a TD on 68% of Red-Zone trips. At the time of this article, the Chargers are receiving 60% of the money on the Spread and 74% of the Moneyline bets.
- Denver Broncos at Las Vegas Raiders – Denver at +4 or better – Over 50.5 –Denver has underperformed in recent games and still scored over 27 points in their last two contests. If Denver can have any kind of offensive success early in this game, their chances of winning outright increase dramatically. The Broncos’ defense has allowed 27.1 points per game. 5 of Denver’s 8 games have gone over the point total. Denver is 3-1 ATS as a road underdog this season. The Raiders and their opponents have combined for 50.5 points or more in 7 of 8 games this season.
