Over-under bets for Week 10 offer some value if you know where to look. It’s been a high-scoring year, although some teams have been playing better defensively as of late.
NFL betting odds suggest at least four games might have over-under totals in the 50s. Here are some of the best bets for this category this week.
Over-Under Bets: NFL Week 10
Week 10 opens up in Miami when the Dolphins (2-7) host the first-place Baltimore Ravens (6-2). The over-under for that game sits at 46.5.
The Dolphins have given up almost 27 points per game so far this season. The Ravens have averaged around that much on offense after eight games.
Last week, the Dolphins put up 17 points against the Houston Texans, one of the worst teams in the NFL. Quarterback Tua Tagovailoa will be a game-time decision for the Dolphins in Week 10.
The Dolphins have scored more than 20 points only twice this season. On the other hand, the Ravens averaged almost 28 points in their last five matchups.
I like the over for this game. Lamar Jackson should have no problem shredding the Dolphins’ secondary.
As for the under, I like the Philadelphia Eagles on the road against the Denver Broncos. The over-under for that game rests at 44.5. The under is favored at -145.
In five games this year, the Eagles scored somewhere in the 20s. Even after putting up 30 points against the Dallas Cowboys last week, the Broncos have averaged nearly 21 points per game.
I don’t see these two teams scoring 45.
High-and-Low Scoring Games This Week
The Atlanta Falcons at Dallas Cowboys game has the highest over-under in Week 10. The current line is 54.5.
I think the Cowboys’ loss against the Broncos last week was just a fluke. They’ve been stellar in their other games at home this season.
The Falcons, on the other hand, have given up 27.5 points per game. They’ve averaged about 22 points on offense in each of their matchups.
The Cowboys are the fourth-highest scoring offense in the NFC.
So, it depends on how well their defense can contain Matt Ryan. In his last five games, the Falcons averaged almost 27 points, which is above their average.
Although it’s the highest among over-under bets, the point total for Atlanta at Dallas could go either way.
The lowest over-under total comes from the Detroit Lions at Pittsburgh Steelers. The line for that game is 42.5.
In eight losses, the Lions have given up nearly 31 points per game. They’ve averaged barely 17 points on offense in those contests. (The worst in the NFC in both of those categories.)
The Steelers have won their last four matchups, averaging a modest 23.5 points per game during that span.
The weather is expected to be cold in Pittsburgh on Sunday afternoon. So I’d take the under for that game.
