Half of the NFL schedule has been completed so far, and bettors are anxiously looking towards Week 10 in the NFL to start the second half of the season.
BetMGM has their latest NFL betting lines out, and there are a few lines that stand out.
What are the most exciting lines in the NFL this week? Let’s take a look.
Colts (-10.5) vs. Jaguars
Last week, I picked against the Jaguars, and not only did they cover, but they won the game outright. So now, this week, I am doing it again, but for different reasons.
The Jaguars are coming off of their biggest win of the season against the Buffalo Bills and may be due for a letdown game. Plus, the Colts were facing a similar opponent in a similar situation, with the Jets coming off of a big home upset win over the Bengals in Week 8 before falling to the Colts on the road last week.
Indianapolis tends to handle their business against less than average teams this year. They are 4-0 outright and ATS when facing teams under .500 at the time of playing them.
Playing an unproven team in the Jaguars at home, I like the Colts to cover in this spot.
Titans (-3) vs. Saints
This game is purely a pro Titans pick because, in my opinion, they have been one of the most undervalued teams by sportsbooks all season. To give you an idea, they got five points at home vs. the Bills, they got seven points last week at the Rams, and they got four points at home against the Chiefs.
Tennessee not only covered in those games but won them outright, and they have the third-best record ATS in the NFL at 7-2. Some people have been concerned about what they might be without RB Derrick Henry, but I think they have proven that they can win without him.
I am skeptical that the Saints’ offense can keep up here, especially with question marks at the QB position. Until I see some consistency from New Orleans, I am going to back the Titans.
Packers (-3.5) vs. Seahawks
This pick is for bolder bettors because, at the time of writing, it is unclear whether or not QB Aaron Rodgers will be able to return in time for Sunday’s game due to COVID protocols. But, he should be able to play as long as his tests come back negative.
With that in mind, there are some QB questions on the other sideline, as QB Russell Wilson looks like he will play in this game. That news has most likely been the critical factor in this line going down from the opening of -5.
In light of that news, I think the Packers have the better overall team, and their defense has been impressive the last two weeks, giving up just 21 points to the Cardinals and 13 to the Chiefs. In their previous six games, the Packers defense has only allowed just over 16 points per game.
If you believe Rodgers will play Sunday, I think that taking the Packers is the smart play.
