NFL 2023 Week 10 Prequel

NFL 2023 Week 10 Prequel

Thursday, November 9, 8pm

Carolina Panthers at Chicago Bears (-4) — Both of these teams are terrible. In a battle of terrible teams, a 4 point spread is simply too high. Bears win but fail to cover

Sunday, November 12, 9:30am

Indianapolis Colts (-1 1/2) at New England Patriots — This game is in Germany, so it is not a true home game for the Patriots. Gardner Minshew is playing better than Mac Jones. The Patriots offense outside of Rhamondre Stevenson is lacking. Jonathan Taylor runs well as well. Go with the better quarterback. Colts cover


Houston Texans at Cincinnati Bengals (-7) — The Bengals have won four straight and are back to being the elite team of the last couple seasons. They are also at home. CJ Stroud had a game for the ages last week, but the Buffalo defense is formidable. After watching the Bengals easily handle Buffalo, they should keep rolling. Bengals cover

Green Bay Packers at Pittsburgh Steelers (-3 1/2) — The Steelers are not that special, but they still know how to win a street fight. They gutted out a tough home win over Tennessee last week. The Packers are a bad team. Jordan Love is not getting it done. If the Steelers can continue to pound the rock, they will win ugly again. Steelers win but fail to cover

Tennessee Titans at Tampa Bay Buccaneers (-1) — Both of these teams suffered heartbreaking losses last week. The Titans lost a brutal defensive boneblack at Pittsburgh while the Buccaneers were shocked at Houston in a shootout decided in the final seconds. Baker Mayfield is playing well enough to expect him to win at home. He has better receivers that the Titans have. Buccaneers cover

Cleveland Browns at Baltimore Ravens (-6) — The Browns are good but the Ravens are very good. The Ravens formula of running the ball and playing great defense still works. DeShaun Watson has not regained his early career for yet. Lamar Jackson is playing well. Ravens cover

San Francisco 49ers (-3) at Jacksonville Jaguars — This spread is odd given that the 49ers have lost three straight. They have talent, a great defense and a great coach, but the Jaguars are no slouches either. Trevor Lawrence knows how to sling the ball around. At home, give the Jaguars the benefit of the doubt. The 49ers do not get that until they turn it around. Upset special, Jaguar win outright

New Orleans Saints (-2 1/2) at Minnesota Vikings — Joshua Dobbs showed plenty of heart in a comeback win at Atlanta last week. Derek Carr has more weapons and the Saints have a much better defense. Dennis Allen will have several new wrinkles for Dobbs to contend with. Saints cover

Atlanta Falcons (-1 1/2) at Arizona Cardinals — The Cardinals are a complete and total mess. The falcons are nothing special, but in games like this they do not have to be. Falcons cover

Detroit Lions (-3) at Los Angeles Chargers — The Lions overachieve and the Chargers underachieve. Yet the Chargers are at home. Jared Goff and Justin Herbert are both solid. The Lions have the better defense and are more physical. Both coaches take bold gambles, but Brandon Staley is too reckless. This is one of those games to just trust the home field. Upset special, Chargers win outright

New York Giants at Dallas Cowboys (-16 1/2) — Yes, the spread is insane. However, the Cowboys beat the Giants 40-0 in the opener. Now the rematch is in Dallas. The Cowboys will be angry after a crushing loss in the final moments at Philadelphia. The Giants are down to their third string quarterback. The Giants gave up eight sacks last week. Micah Parsons will be licking his chops. Cowboys cover

Washington Commanders at Seattle Seahawks (-6 1/2) — The Seahawks lost by 34 points last week, but are at home against an average at best Washington team. Yet the Commanders play hard for Ron Rivera, and this game does not look like a blowout. Seahawks win but fail to cover

New York Jets (-1) at Las Vegas Raiders — The Raiders responded well in their first game without Josh McDaniels, but the Jets have a far better defense than the Giants. The Giants were playing wit a third string quarterback. Zach Wilson has not proven anything, but neither has Aidan O’Connell. The Raiders could come out flat, but interim coach Antonio Pierce seems too intense for that. Raiders cover 

Denver Broncos at Buffalo Bills (-7 1/2) — The Bills lost at Cincinnati. The Bills will be angry and at home against a Denver team that is atrocious. Josh Allen will want redemption, and he will get it in spades. The Bills have the better defense. Yet the Broncos have been more competitive in recent weeks, so a garbage touchdown is possible. Bills win but fail to cover
