NFL picks, Week 10: Straight up and against the spread

New, comments
NFL: Kansas City Chiefs at Dallas Cowboys Kevin Jairaj-USA TODAY Sports

Let’s check the damage from last week shall we?

I had a rough week on the straight up picks as I went 7-6 last week. I knew last week would be tough and that shows in my picks. This week appears to be a little easier so hopefully I can get closer to the 12-1 record I had two weeks ago.

I did much better against the spread going 7-2 last week.

Straight Up Picks

Seahawks @ Cardinals: Seahawks

Jets @ Buccaneers: Buccaneers

Saints @ Bills: Saints

Browns @ Lions: Lions

Bengals @ Titans: Titans

Packers @ Bears: Bears

Chargers @ Jaguars: Jaguars

Vikings @ Redskins: Redskins

Steelers @ Colts: Steelers

Against the Spread

When betting against the spread I pick what I think the spread to each game should be. Then if my spread is two or more points away from the actual spread, I place a bet on the team my spread favors. Remember, I do this for fun. If you’re expecting to make money off of these, don’t.

Update: Some of the lines have changed, so I added a few more picks against the spread.

Seahawks (-7) @ Cardinals: Cardinals
My spread: Seahawks (-5)

Packers @ Bears (-6): Packers
My spread: Bears (-3)

Browns @ Lions (-11.5): Lions
My spread: Lions (-14)

Bengals @ Titans (-5): Bengals
My spread: Titans (-3)

Chargers @ Jaguars (-3.5): Jaguars
My spread: Jaguars (-9)

Patriots (-7.5) @ Broncos: Broncos
My spread: Patriots (-5)

Giants (-3) @ 49ers: 49ers
My spread: EVEN

Dolphins @ Panthers (-9): Panthers
My spread: Panthers (-12)

I’m not a big fan of a lot of those picks, but I have a process that I stick with.... wish me luck!
