We’re starting to get down to the business end of the season of the NFL where every game becomes more and more important.
There are no marquee games in round 10 this week, but that’s going to provide punters with even betting markets, which kicks off this Friday when the Seahawks look to recover after a shock loss at home on Monday.
12:25pm Arizona Cardinals vs. Seattle Seahawks
Fortunes changed for both teams last week as the Seahawks suffered a rare defeat at home to the Redskins and the Cardinals scored a win over the 49ers.
Beating the 49ers isn’t much to gloat about this season, but it got their season back on track and Seattle has their fair share of injury problems.
Richard Sherman is in doubt and Earl Thomas is out for Friday’s game and we think the Cards could score a rare back-to-back win.

5:00am Buffalo Bills vs. New Orleans Saints
The Bills look to continue their unbeaten winning streak at home, but it’s going to be tough against the visiting Saints.
Exceeding expectations at 6-2, the Saints have been led by seasoned quarterback Drew Brees this season and they have been steamrolling through teams this season.
Bills fans had plenty to be excited about this season before losing to the Jets on Friday last week, but they’ve had more rest than the Saints and they’re a top defensive unit.
Close game, but we love winning home records.

5:00am Chicago Bears vs. Green Bay Packers
The Packers are struggling with Brett Hundley at the quarterback position and we’re not sure they’ll recover without Aaron Rodgers.
They have now lost all three games since Rodgers went down and although the Bears aren’t much chop, they did look good when beating the Ravens and Panthers in consecutive weeks.
This will be a good test for Hundley against a team that doesn’t score points in bunches and there could be an upset on the cards here.
Betting tip: Packers +6 @ $1.90 (BET NOW)
Packers by 4
5:00am Detroit Lions vs. Cleveland Browns
We’ll keep this one short because it should be one of the most one-sided games of the week.
The Lions came back from their bye-week with a solid win over the Packers and the 0-8 Browns will likely continue to lose this season.
Lions’ backers should be very confident of an easy victory.

5:00am Tennessee Titans vs. Cincinnati Bengals
The Titans are rolling with three straight wins this season and they’re back into playoff contention.
Wins against the Colts, Browns and Ravens have put them in good stead at 5-3 on the season, but they’re not a sure thing this week.
Cincinnati are a tough team to play and they’re looking for a rebound performance after losing to Jacksonville, where they scored only seven points.
The Bengals are capable of beating a team like the Titans and we’re expecting a close game.
Betting tip: Bengals +5.5 @ $1.91 (BET NOW)
Bengals by 2
5:00am Indianapolis Colts vs. Pittsburgh Steelers
The Colts could have put the cue in the rack this season, but they fought hard for the win last week against the Texans.
Houston was missing its star quarterback, but the defence held off late in the game and that’s a positive moving forward.
Pittsburgh is one of the better teams in the competition this season and after three consecutive wins and a bye week coming into this, the Colts will be up against a different force.
Betting tip: Steelers –10.5 @ $2 (BET NOW)
Steelers by 14
5:00am Tampa Bay Buccaneers vs. New York Jets
This season looked promising for the Buccaneers, but it’s all gone horribly wrong.
They have lost their last five games and they will need to call upon their 2-2 home record to hold off the Jets, which are full of confidence.
The Jets travel to Florida having beaten the Bills convincingly last Friday and that came after three consecutive narrow defeats.
Bookmakers are giving the slight edge to the visiting Jets and we’d have to agree. They’re travelling the better this season and it looks like a good bet.

5:00am Washington Redskins vs. Minnesota Vikings
Punters were writing off the Redskins against Seattle last week, but they pulled off the almighty upset.
Travelling into Seattle is never easy, but Kirk Cousins and the Redskins were able to come away with the 17-14 win.
That came a week after losing three of their four games, but the confidence will be up after that encouraging effort.
The Vikings are another team will full confidence after winning their fourth consecutive game. They haven’t quite faced the best teams in the NFL, but they will feel confident about taking on the Redskins this week.

5:00am Jacksonville Jaguars vs. L.A. Chargers
The Jaguars suspended star running back Leonard Fournette last week and they still scored impressively.
The rookie running back is back against the Chargers this week and he’ll be hungry to make amends for his ill-discipline last week.
Jaguars’ fans have every reason to be excited after wins against the Colts and Bengals, and they look like a solid playoff threat.
The Chargers lost 21-13 to the Patriots before a bye week and they’ll need to be refreshed to win here. Earlier wins against the Giants, Broncos and Raiders have them at 3-5 on the season, but a loss here could end their playoff chances.
Betting tip: Jaguars -4 @ $1.90 (BET NOW)
Jaguars by 12
8:05am L.A. Rams vs. Houston Texans
The Rams continue to roll this season and Houston are going to continue to struggle without their quarterback.
This is one of the biggest bookmaker lines of the week and we’re extremely confident the Rams will do the job easily this Monday.
They have scored 84 points and given up only 17 in their last two games and it’s hard to see Houston getting close.
Betting tip: Rams -12 @ $1.91 (BET NOW)
Rams by 20
8:25am Atlanta Falcons vs. Dallas Cowboys
The Falcons are in dire straits after going to 4-4 on the season and we’re not sure they’re the same team this year as they were last season.
With a losing record at home, the Falcons are just struggling to stay relevant this season and it’s not about to get easier against the Cowboys.
Coming off a solid 28-17 win over the Chiefs, the Cowboys have now made it three straight wins and all three have been impressive.
They are 3-1 away from home which is surprising and the better than even money odds is appealing.

8:25am San Francisco 49ers vs. New York Giants
This is a classic game between two bad teams and not many people will be watching.
The 0-9 49ers look to score their first win of the season and they won’t get a better chance against the hapless Giants.
Sitting at 1-7 on the season, the Giants have lost all identity on the season which was expected to be so much better.
It’s tough to get excited here, but we’ll go with the home side.

12:30pm Denver Broncos vs. New England Patriots
There were some concerns about the Patriots earlier in the season, but they’re rolling now and another Super Bowl appearance looks likely.
With four consecutive wins to boast, the Patriots are rolling and facing a team which has lost four straight is going to make it easier.
The Broncos look out of sorts after dropping games to the Giants, Chargers, Chiefs and Eagles. They have failed to even get close in those games and the Patriots should pick them apart.
Betting tip: Patriots –7.5 @ $1.89 (BET NOW)
Patriots by 17
12:30pm Carolina Panthers vs. Miami Dolphins
Unfortunately, it’s not quite the Tuesday afternoon spectacular we’re used to, but it should be a close game.
The Panthers look back on track after solid wins over the Buccs’ and Falcons, which puts them back into contention at 6-3 on the season.
At 4-4 is the Dolphins, which have lost their last two games. That included a 40-0 loss to the Ravens and we’re not confident QB Jay Cutler can score enough points to win this week.
Betting tip: Panthers –9.5 @ $1.90 (BET NOW)
