NFL Week 10 odds: 5 favorites worth betting on
In Week 10 of the 2020 NFL season, there’s 14 games but five favorites stand out as good bets to cash in with.
5. Tampa Bay Buccaneers (-5.5) at Carolina Panthers
This game has all the makings of Tampa Bay playing very well. The Buccaneers were humbled on national television by the New Orleans Saints on Sunday night, losing 38-3 at home. Head coach Bruce Arians has had a full week to lay into his team, alongside future first-ballot Hall of Fame quarterback Tom Brady.
Meanwhile, Carolina is without All-Pro running back Christian McCaffrey due to a shoulder injury. Look for the Bucs to get up early and pull away.
4. Los Angeles Rams (-1.5) vs. Seattle Seahawks
An absolutely great spot for the Rams. They’re at home and coming off a bye, while the Seahawks just had to travel across the country last weekend to lose 44-34 to the Buffalo Bills. Los Angeles also has one of the best defenses in the league, while Seattle decidedly has the worst.

The Rams have been inconsistent at times over the past season and a half, but they’ve been very good against Seattle in the Sean McVay era. It won’t change on Sunday.
3. Green Bay Packers (-13) vs. Jacksonville Jaguars
Jacksonville is starting Jake Luton under center, and while he was decent against the Houston Texans, he’s facing a different weight class in Green Bay at Lambeau Field. Aaron Rodgers should have few issues putting up a litany of points against Jacksonville’s porous defense, putting Luton in a position where he must throw early and often.
Having to cover 13 points is significant, but Green Bay shouldn’t have much issue at home against one of the league’s worst two teams.
2. Cleveland Browns (-3) vs. Houston Texans
The Texans haven’t stopped anybody all season — including the Jaguars, who are the only team Houston has beaten. Now they head to Cleveland, where the Browns are coming off a bye, are at home, and are facing a must-win for their playoff hopes.
The Browns are 5-3 after losing two weekends ago to the Las Vegas Raiders, and a loss to Houston would be a catastrophe. As long as Baker Mayfield doesn’t submarine the Browns, they’ll win going away.
1. Baltimore Ravens (-7.5) at New England Patriots
Frankly, this appears easy money (and so we’ve jinxed it). Baltimore is one of the top five teams in football, and New England has been awful since starting 2-1. The Patriots are incredibly banged up including the loss of receiver Julian Edelman to knee surgery.
Conversely, Baltimore is trying to keep pace in the AFC North with the Pittsburgh Steelers. The Ravens should have no problem dispatching the Patriots.
