2016-NFL-Week 10-Sunday football-Full betting preview

Chiefs at Panthers (-3, 44) – 1:00 PM EST

Kansas City
Record: 6-2 SU, 3-5 ATS, 6-2 UNDER
Super Bowl Odds: 15/1

The Chiefs split their first four games of the season, but Kansas City is riding a four-game winning streak, capped off by an ugly home victory over Jacksonville last Sunday. Nick Foles started in place of the injured Alex Smith at quarterback, as Foles led the Chiefs to the end zone only once, while Kansas City needed four field goals in a 19-14 win as seven-point favorites. Smith is expected back under center on Sunday as the Chiefs are listed as an underdog for the second time this season, losing to the Steelers in Week 4 in their other opportunity as a ‘dog.

Record: 3-5 SU, 2-5-1 ATS, 5-3 OVER
Super Bowl Odds: 45/1

The Panthers lost just once in the 2015 regular season, but won only one game through the first six contests this season. Carolina is looking to make a run by beating Arizona and Los Angeles the last two weeks, as the Panthers are facing their second AFC West opponent this season. The first interconference game didn’t work out for Carolina in a 21-20 opening week loss at Denver, as Carolina has cashed once in its last four chances against AFC opponents at home since 2014.

Best Bet: Kansas City +3

Broncos at Saints (-3, 49) – 1:00 PM EST

Record: 6-3 SU, 6-3 ATS, 5-4 OVER
Super Bowl Odds: 18/1

The Broncos remain in the mix for the AFC West title in spite of last Sunday’s loss at Oakland. Denver starts Week 10 one game behind Oakland in the division after a 30-20 defeat at Coliseum as the Broncos were outrushed, 218-33. Denver is making its first trip to the Superdome since 2004 as the Broncos dropped 530 yards on New Orleans in its previous matchup in 2012 in a 34-14 blowout at Sports Authority Field.

New Orleans
Record: 4-4 SU, 6-2 ATS, 5-3 OVER
Super Bowl Odds: 85/1

Following an 0-3 start, the Saints have come back to life by winning four of its past five games. New Orleans dominated San Francisco last Sunday as five-point favorites, 41-23, while racking up 571 yards on the 49ers’ awful defense. The Saints have covered five consecutive games, including the last two in the role of a home underdog. New Orleans has struggled in the home favorite role at 0-2 SU/ATS with losses to Oakland and Atlanta, while losing four of its past six contests against AFC foes.

Best Bet: Denver +3

Falcons (-1 ½, 50) at Eagles – 1:00 PM EST

Record: 6-3 SU, 6-3 ATS, 8-1 OVER
Super Bowl Odds: 13/1

The Falcons have rebounded from a two-game skid to win each of their last two contests to sit atop of the NFC South at 6-3. Atlanta dominated Tampa Bay in Week 9 as 4 ½-point favorites, 43-28 to eclipse the 40-point mark for the third time this season. Matt Ryan tossed at least three touchdown passes for the fifth time in 2016, including the third instance on the road against the Bucs. Although Atlanta covered last week, the Falcons own a 2-10 ATS record as a favorite since the start of last season.

Record: 4-4 SU, 4-4 ATS, 5-3 OVER
Super Bowl Odds: 80/1

The Eagles should be thrilled to be back at Lincoln Financial Field after losing each of the past two weeks inside the division to the Cowboys and Giants. Philadelphia has lost four of five road games, but has compiled a 3-0 home record, including victories as an underdog against Pittsburgh and Minnesota. Carson Wentz threw for a career-high 364 yards in last Sunday’s 28-23 loss at New York, but was intercepted twice. The rookie of North Dakota State owns a 5/2 touchdown to interception ratio at home, while the Eagles haven’t allowed more than 10 points in a game at home this season.

Best Bet: Philadelphia + 1 ½

Vikings at Redskins (-2 ½, 41 ½) – 1:00 PM EST

Record: 5-3 SU, 5-3 ATS, 6-2 UNDER
Super Bowl Odds: 20/1

The Vikings are in the midst of a free-fall following a 5-0 start by losing three straight games. In the three losses (all in the favorite role), Minnesota’s offense mustered a total of 36 points, while falling in overtime to Detroit last Sunday, 22-16. The Vikings’ defense has done its part by allowing four offensive touchdowns in the last three games in regulation, but Minnesota hasn’t rushed more than 93 yards in any of its three defeats. Minnesota is flipped into the underdog role this week, as the Vikings have posted a terrific 14-2 ATS record in its past 16 opportunities when receiving points.

Record: 4-3-1 SU, 5-3 ATS, 5-3 UNDER
Super Bowl Odds: 90/1

The Redskins are back from the bye week following an unimpressive result in London, a 27-27 tie with the Bengals. Washington has work to do to catch Dallas in the NFC East, but the Redskins are still in the Wild Card mix after winning four of its past six games. The Redskins will be without one of their big offensive threats as wide receiver DeSean Jackson is sidelined with a shoulder injury. Washington has stumbled to a 2-9 ATS record under Jay Gruden in the favorite role, including a home loss to Dallas back in Week 2.

Best Bet: Minnesota +2 ½

Dolphins at Chargers (-4, 48 ½) – 4:05 PM EST

Record: 4-4 SU, 4-4 ATS, 5-3 OVER
Super Bowl Odds: 150/1

The Dolphins embark on a two-game swing to southern California that will keep Miami out west for the next week. Miami heads to Los Angeles in Week 11, but first the Dolphins need to take care of the Chargers and keep their winning streak alive. The Dolphins started 1-4, but have won three consecutive games, including recent home divisional victories over the Bills and Jets. Miami has yet to pick up a road win this season (0-3 SU, 1-2 ATS), while last winning at Qualcomm Stadium in 2005 (0-3 SU/ATS last three visits).

San Diego
Record: 4-5 SU, 6-3 ATS, 7-2 OVER
Super Bowl Odds: 60/1

The Chargers are several plays away from sitting above the .500 mark and really having a legitimate shot at the AFC West title. San Diego needs to go on a run to capture a Wild Card spot, but the Bolts have played better recently by winning three of their past four games. The Chargers pulled away from the Titans last Sunday in a 43-35 triumph as running back Melvin Gordon posted his second straight 100-yard game, while the defense scored a pair of touchdowns. Last season, the Chargers closed the season with four consecutive UNDERS at home, but San Diego has cashed the OVER in three of four games at Qualcomm Stadium in 2016.

Best Bet: San Diego -4

Cowboys at Steelers (-2 ½, 50) – 4:25 PM EST

Record: 7-1 SU, 7-1 ATS, 5-3 UNDER
Super Bowl Odds: 8/1

The Cowboys own the longest winning streak in the NFL at seven games following their opening week one-point defeat to the Giants. Dallas rolled Cleveland last Sunday, 35-10, as the Cowboys have held five of their last six opponents to 17 points or less. Dak Prescott continues to make his case as starting quarterback by throwing three touchdown passes against the Browns, while getting intercepted only twice in eight games. The Cowboys have won four of their past five road games against AFC opponents, as Dallas is making its first trip to Pittsburgh since a 20-13 loss at Heinz Field in 2008.

Record: 4-4 SU, 4-4 ATS, 6-2 UNDER
Super Bowl Odds: 15/1

The Steelers jumped out of the gate with a solid 4-1 mark, but have fallen backwards by losing three in a row. Ben Roethlisberger injured his knee in a loss at Miami and although he returned last week at Baltimore, the Steelers haven’t scored more than 16 points in any of the past three losses. Pittsburgh has won 10 consecutive regular season home games in the favorite role since 2014, including a 3-0 SU/ATS record this season. The Steelers have fared well against NFC foes at Heinz Field since 2011, going 7-3 SU and 6-4 ATS, including a 2-0 SU/ATS mark last season.

Best Bet: Pittsburgh -2 ½
