If last week’s action proved anything, it’s that NFL underdog betting lines have value. After a heavy news week, a lot of NFL betting picks got turned upside down. A few teams suffered upsets at the hands of unlikely opponents.
So for these Week 10 NFL games, will the trend continue, or does normal prevail? Well, there is still some underdog betting value in upcoming games. So here are a few bold picks for NFL underdog betting this week.
Bills at Jets (+13)
Last week’s 9-6 loss to the Jaguars has become a familiar pattern for the Buffalo Bills. Of course, the mid-season offensive struggles are a big concern for a team that has Super Bowl aspirations. But, even stranger, the Jets seem to play the Bills the toughest.
Buffalo owns the advantage in wins and losses, but they haven’t beaten the Jets by more than 10 points since 2018. The Jets aren’t great, but they have shown improvement with Mike White at quarterback.
Buffalo will get back on track, but I don’t believe they’ll win by 13. The point spread is too high here, so I like the Jets to cover.
Falcons at Cowboys (-8.5)
The Dallas defense laid a massive egg against the Broncos on Sunday night. Dan Quinn says he’s not thinking about his former team in Week 10 NFL action, but Quinn also knows his unit can’t spot teams 30 points and expect to win.
Meanwhile, the Atlanta Falcons are winning close games and are back to .500. Confidence is building behind rookie coach Arthur Smith.
I have the Falcons covering against the spread in another close one.
Seahawks at Packers (-3.5)
With so much drama in Green Bay this week, it’s easy to forget there’s a big game on the schedule. However, this Week 10 NFL matchup will likely feature two returning star quarterbacks.
Russell Wilson has gotten clearance to play, and it couldn’t have come at a better time for the 3-5 Seahawks. A win in Green Bay will put Seattle back in the thick of the NFC Wild Card race.
Green Bay expects Aaron Rodgers to clear COVID protocol by Saturday. But, whether he plays or not, the week of media coverage doesn’t help this team stay focused, and Rodgers will have limited practice time before this weekend’s game.
I expect the Seattle Seahawks to capitalize on the momentum of Wilson’s return, so I like them as NFL underdogs to cover the 4 points.
Chiefs at Raiders (+2.5)
A different sort of drama is playing out in the AFC West for Week 10 NFL games. The bad news keeps coming out of the Raiders’ camp with another starter released. The good news for the Raiders is that they are home again in Las Vegas, where they are 3-1.
In Kansas City, the concern is what’s happening with Patrick Mahomes and the Chiefs’ offense. Grumblings about missed receivers and poor scoring plague the Chiefs right now. Even after squeaking out the win against Green Bay, they are still last in the division.
The Raiders have been proving the oddsmakers wrong all season. I believe that the Raiders will bounce back and reclaim the division lead.
Best NFL Underdog Betting Lines
Several teams around the NFL Week 10 schedule are struggling to regain consistency. In the middle of the season, that presents an opportunity for underdog betting value. Spoilers are existent everywhere this week.
But even better, there are NFL underdog betting lines with more considerable potential. Two of the matchups mentioned in particular have me looking at the money line. I like Seattle at +160 and the Raiders at +125 to win this week.
