NFL Week 10 schedule: 5 best bets on favorites

After a deep dive into the NFL Week 10 schedule, these five favorites are the best bets to not only win but cover their spreads.

5. Dallas Cowboys (-9) vs. Atlanta Falcons

Last week, many bettors took a huge loss with the Cowboys, who were laying 10 points in most books to the Denver Broncos only to be blown out at home. Will we have a repeat with the Falcons coming to town? Not likely. Atlanta has tight end Kyle Pitts but precious little else in the way of weapons. Additionally, the Falcons’ defense is much worse than Denver’s and doesn’t have the ability to stop Amari Cooper, Michael Gallup, Dak Prescott and Co. Dallas should have a big day.

4. Arizona Cardinals (-10.5) vs. Carolina Panthers

This is all about whether Kyler Murray plays, which remains unknown. If he doesn’t, scratch this and move on. If he does, you’re getting Murray against P.J. Walker, who is stepping in for the injured Sam Darold until Cam Newton can get himself ready to play. Walker is a nice story after reviving his career in the XFL, but he’s no match for Murray and the one-loss Cardinals, who are dominant in almost every analytical metric. Expect a blowout if Arizona is healthy under center.

3. Denver Broncos (-1.5) vs. Philadelphia Eagles

Why are the Broncos only laying 1.5 points in this game? Philadelphia is 3-6 and hasn’t played good football at any point this year. Now, the Eagles travel to the Mile High City, where the Broncos are always tough even when they lack sufficient star-power to be a contender. Philadelphia allows opposing quarterbacks to complete a league-high 75 percent of passes against, and Teddy Bridgewater is one of the more accurate passers in the game. Not good for the Birds.

2. Tampa Bay Buccaneers (-9.5) at Washington Football Team

Both teams are coming off a bye, and the Buccaneers might be without receiver Chris Godwin in addition to tight end Rob Gronkowski and receiver Antonio Brown. However, they still have Tom Brady going up against one of the league’s worst defenses, while Washington is countering with Taylor Heinicke. Ultimately, this is a game which flips on a few Washington mistakes.

1. Los Angeles Rams (-4) at San Francisco 49ers

This is a simple one. The Rams were beaten badly on national television last weekend by the Tennessee Titans and will be laser-focused. Meanwhile, the 49ers were boatraced by Colt McCoy last Sunday in a bad loss to the Cardinals. Two teams going in opposite directions, with only one having the talent to turn everything around.
