You never know when a monumental upset will occur like the Jaguars over the Bills this past Sunday.

NFL underdog bets are a staple of NFL betting, providing people the ultimate chance to say they were right about the team that was supposed to lose.

Following up a wild Week 9 that had some upsets, let’s take a look at some underdogs in Week 10 that could potentially walk away with a win.

Week 10 NFL Underdog Bets – Bills at Jets

The Jets are the biggest underdog of the week, as the Bills have opened as 13-point favorites over their division foe. On paper, it makes complete sense.

The Bills allow the fewest points per game, and the Jets surrender the most. But, conversely, the Bills score the fourth most per game, and the Jets are 27th in that department.

Still, this game will be at MetLife, where the Jets are 2-1, with wins over the Titans and Bengals. They’ve also scored 64 points over their past two contests against the Bengals and the Colts.

The Bills, meanwhile, struggled to score for three quarters against the Dolphins and the entire game against the Jaguars, two poor defenses.

Picking a 2-6 team against a Super Bowl contender seems insane, but momentum appears to favor the Jets, who will also have extra rest because they played on Thursday.

Chiefs at Raiders

The Sunday Night Matchup for the week opened with the home team as 2.5 point underdogs. They’ve dealt with a lot of turmoil and just had a disappointing loss to the Giants, but are still 5-3 with a 3-1 record at home.

Among those home wins was a Monday Night Football showdown with the Ravens, one of the best teams in the league.

Meanwhile, the Chiefs’ offense has been uncharacteristically ineffective lately, scoring only 12 points a game over their past three games.

The key will be the Raiders pass defense, which has 21 sacks and is fifth in the league, allowing just 206.9 yards per game, against the Chiefs passing game, which is sixth in the NFL.

Vikings at Chargers

This game is a battle of two teams that like to play nail biters, with the Chargers being the slight favorites.

The Vikings have played eight games, and seven of them were decided by one score. Unfortunately, they’ve lost five of those seven so far, albeit all to teams with a winning record.

The Chargers have also played eight games, and six of those were by one possession. However, they’ve been better at pulling them out, winning four of the six.

When these teams meet on Sunday, it’s likely to come down to the wire, and then it just depends on who makes the big plays to seal the victory. I think the Vikings have an excellent opportunity to pull out a win here.

Seahawks at Packers

The Seahawks will head to Lambeau on Sunday as 4-point underdogs.

Quarterback Russell Wilson will likely be returning and starting this game. On the other sideline, it’s not as likely that Aaron Rodgers will be able to return by Sunday.

The Packers’ offense was a shell of itself during Jordan Love’s first start. The defense has been tremendous all season, especially the last two games, but as we saw against the Chiefs, it doesn’t matter if they can’t score.
