Alright people, the home stretch. This is not a drill. By now you should have a good grasp on which teams are ready for the NFL playoffs and which teams you should wager against each and every NFL football week of action. That was a joke. It’s the NFL – no one knows what can happen from week to week! That said, we have a good idea about these four games. These are our week 10 NFL picks. Let’s get to it.

Week 10 NFL Picks
Cleveland Browns vs Baltimore Ravens (-10)
I don’t care what the spread is. You don’t bet on the Browns. You just don’t do it. They are akin to the Washington Generals right now. So in addition to the money line I am leaning towards laying double digits and grabbing the Ravens this week. Baltimore can smell a division run and it begins with this game.
Denver Broncos vs New Orleans Saints (-1.5)
This is a nice value pick right here. The Broncos were still competitive last week on the road despite a ton of injuries prior to and during the game versus the Raiders. So, to now get points, albeit on the road, is eye-popping. Give me the Broncos with the points, since I believe that they will win straight out with a lot of defensive big plays.
Miami Dolphins vs San Diego Chargers (-1.5)
This might be one of the most entertaining games of the season. Both teams are coming off wins and both teams are desperate to remain in the playoff hunt. While both teams have squandered many opportunities this season, chances are they won’t tie and someone will actually win a meaningful game! I like the Chargers here. They could easily be 6-3 and not 4-5, maybe more. While injuries have really rocked them this season I like Philip Rivers to rise up and carry his team. As for Ryan Tannehill? I don’t see him winning on the road across the country. Lay the small spread and take SD.
Seattle Seahawks vs New England Patriots (-7.5)
The Pats are rolling and are virtually unstoppable at home. That said, this Seahawks team is good, very good. Their offensive line is finally looking decent and Jimmy Graham is making Russell Wilson look more Russell Wilson-like. This is a lot of points to lay against a strong opponent, even in Foxboro. Tom Brady and the Pats are amazingly coached, but they are not perfect. As such, give me the high spread and take the points.
