Officially on the back nine of the 2020 NFL season, which in itself is an accomplishment. Onward to the Week 10 picks... Indianapolis @ Tennessee - Should be a fun one between evenly matched squads. Go with the home team who has the better running game. Houston @ Cleveland - How is it to be a Houston sports fan these days? Astros are as hated as anyone in sports, everyone now wants off the Rockets and the Texans continue to perform head-scratching things in the front office and behind the scenes. I say team on the field at least turns off the nonsense for three hours. Washington @ Detroit - The Burgolders now down to Alex Smith at QB, if anything happens to him the team would reluctantly be forced back to Dwayne Haskins. Jacksonville @ Green Bay - Week 9 not good for those who took prohibitive favorites Kansas City or Pittsburgh against the number. Jaguars hang around for a while and lose something like 34-24. Philadelphia @ NY Giants - The Giants covered a few weeks back despite blowing the win in the final minutes. My hunch has the Eagles winning again, and could be 5-4-1 if they defeat ceremonial NFL East member Cleveland next week. That may all but secure the NFC's No. 4 seed. Tampa Bay @ Carolina - Sometimes you throw out analytics and go with a hunch. The Bucs were horrible last week while Carolina gave Kansas City a game. Tampa bounces back on the road. Denver @ Las Vegas - Broncos did not come close to covering in Atlanta, they somehow keep it close this week. LA Chargers @ Miami - Positive vibes can be taken out of the Chargers last game, Justin Herbert all but threw a game-winning TD pass on the final play. The Bolts head into the future knowing they are set behind center.
Buffalo @ Arizona - Go to the betting window and put a wager on the Cardinals winning the Super Bowl. At least Arizona has as good a chance as anyone out of the NFC and currently the conferences point differential. The Cards must win though after falling to Miami last week, a win and Arizona could find themselves tied for first in the NFC West by day's end. Seattle @ LA Rams - Almost could flip a coin on this, will go with Seattle to bounce back after falling flat in Buffalo. San Francisco @ New Orleans - Saints have gone from -7 to -10 during the week, look for them to roll for second straight week.
Cincinnati @ Pittsburgh - I have to pick a few dogs with the points, it is in Pittsburgh but will take Cincy and the 7.5. Baltimore @ New England - Time to realize the Patriots are not just bad, they are NFC East bad. Ravens win easily in Foxborough. Minnesota @ Chicago - Vikings suddenly trending up while Bears implode and fans dream about Jim Harbaugh becoming coach. If holding a fantasy draft for the final eight weeks, Dalvin Cook could easily be the No. 1 overall choice. Locks: Tennessee v. Indianapolis, Miami v. LA Chargers, Arizona v. Buffalo, Baltimore @ New England, Minnesota @ Chicago Overall Record: Last Week 6-8, Season 65-61-1
Locks: Last Week 2-3, Season 26-19
