Find out how the NFL betting landscape takes shape for week 10 in this early NFL betting preview and analysis. Where is the early value to be had for your NFL picks?

What did week 9 NFL betting reveal?
To start with, it leaves three teams unbeaten on the season: New England Patriots, Cincinnati Bengals and Carolina Panthers. The Denver Broncos were bumped out of the undefeated ranks in week 9 NFL betting, while Aaron Rodgers and the Green Bay Packers succumbed to their second straight loss of the season, marking the first time they went back-to-back losses since 2010. Finally, it saw the Titans snap the worst losing streak with a shock upset over the Saints on the road and the Niners win behind Blaine Gabbert (what?), amongst other things.

 

Week 10 NFL Odds Preview
On the heels of a rather exciting week 9, odds makers roll out NFL odds for week 10 which has the potential to serve up more surprises and intriguing storylines. Five divisional rivalries feature on the menu, as well as four inter-conference clashes along with five intra-conference clashes. Four teams head into a bye this week: Niners, Chargers, Falcons and Colts.

Arguably, all eyes are going to be on the Patriots, Panthers and Bengals as they attempt to extend their streaks to an impressive 9-0 SU season – what would be records for the latter pair – at the close of the week’s round. If the NFL odds were any indication, the chances look pretty good (see Table 1) of that happening.

Divisional Rivalries To Spot: Bills vs. Jets and Cardinals vs. Seahawks
Of all the divisional rivalries to spot on week 10’s NFL betting menu, this pair has the best potential to serve up surprises. Rex Ryan takes his rejuvenated Buffalo Bills to his old stomping grounds in NY in the hopes of serving up the upset as the 3-point road dogs. Bills (4-4) trampled the Dolphins 33-17 in week 9 while the Jets edged the Jaguars 28-23. Jets will be at home, where they are 3-1 SU this season and justifiable favourites. Then again beating the Browns, Redskins and Jaguars is nothing to get charged about.

Meanwhile, the NFC West showdown between the Cardinals and Seahawks (both coming off bye weeks) has potential title implications within the divisions. It’s worth noting the 6-2 SU Cardinals opened as the 2.5-point underdogs on the road but are slowly creeping up on the NFL odds board. As it is, they are up to a field goal disadvantage. Seattle’s home dominance is renowned over the past few seasons, but this term they’ve only mustered up wins over the Bears and Lions at home while losing to the Panthers in their last home appearance. Might it be back-to-back home losses here for the Seahawks?

Green Bay Packers will look to bounce back in week 10 NFL betting over the hapless Detroit Lions, marking the NFC North showdown. Given how awful the Lions have been this season, the bookies have opened this game on double-digits. It’s likely this game is going to continue trading in the double-digit range as beating the Packers at Lambeau Field is a tough ask for some the best teams in the game, never mind the 1-7 SU Lions.

 

MUST-SEE Games: Patriots at Giants
The New England Patriots are simply the class of the NFL right now, playing at such a high level that some NFL betting experts are predicting a 16-0 SU season. Those that aren’t in accordance with that lofty prediction are looking to week 10’s clash with the Giants on the road as a potential stumbling block. It’s happened in this matchup before.

Odds makers have opened this game with the Patriots as the 7-point road chalk – they had no option really given how the Patriots are dismantling opponents from week-to-week and the public is all over them on their NFL picks. The Giants (5-4SU) are one of the most unpredictable teams in the league and they could give the Pats a run for their money as the 7-point home dogs. This game should see a lot of betting action during the week and we won't be surprised if this NFL betting line goes down as sharps weigh in on the Giants.
