Time to move ahead to Week 10 for betting football and right off the top, for me personally as a handicapper, had a very difficult time coming up with three choices, with the NFL odds makers spot on.


An extremely hard to swallow loss last week by Philadelphia gave me a losing week and unfortunately when working the NFL odds, you cannot figure in-game coaching arrogance and ignorance.

Thus, we move ahead with a still strong 18-8-1 ATS season record for those reading or watching Odds Couple video.

This week we try and start a new winning streak for our NFL picks and when looking at A-rated sportsbook Intertops, where you should review great first-time bonus sign ups, we are ready to get back on track.

 Top Dog - Falcons Fly Past Philly

Not sure I have seen more ignorant coach than how Doug Pederson essentially give away a game his Philadelphia teamed worked so hard to get back in after trailing 14-0. Being aggressive is one thing, but stupidity is another and he should know as well as anyone that these are all professionals. Coaching edge goes to Atlanta. Another factor in the Eagles game with Atlanta is Carson Wentz, as with each passing week is making more rookie mistakes. When you start looking at the quarterback difference in this matchups, Matt Ryan really starts to stick out. The fact of the matter is Atlanta is on an uptick and the Eagles are settling into what we thought they would be. Also, know this, November home teams like Philly with a point spread of +3 to -3, are 9-31 ATS off a division loss.

False Favorite - Pittsburgh Not the Same Team As Expected

The Steelers have said this is turning point game or are doing a Chris Berman "circle the wagons" game, hosting Dallas. Le'Veon Bell's return was supposed to spark the running, which meant clearer passing lanes for Ben Roethlisberger. However, Pittsburgh is averaging 79.7 yards per game on the ground in last four and faces Cowboys defense which ranks 6th against the run. Maybe the Steelers do rise to the occasion at home and they are 15-2 ATS in their building off upset loss to division rival. But Dallas is the best team west of Massachusetts, can run the ball and really exploit Pittsburgh secondary and 7-1 SU and ATS this season, 13-2 ATS on real grass and 6-0 ATS on the road off two or more victories.

Top Total - Packers/Titans Total Headed Right Direction

With Green Bay having allowed 30 or more points in three of past four games and Tennessee permitting 31.2 PPG the last month, no wonder the total has gone up from 48 to 49.5. Both defenses are clearly beatable and the offenses are capable of putting up points. With the Packers 23-9 OVER away off a home loss, like this as Top Total.
