Jay’s Plays NFL Picks: Week 10 betting lines, picks


SHARE THIS STORY

It was a perfect 6-0 for Barstow the Cat, who filled in admirably for Ernesto the Prediction Iguana last week in making our NFL picks. Our first undefeated week here at GNN puts the season tally at a more-than-respectable 28-9 overall.

BARSTOW THE CAT WENT 6-0 LAST WEEK IN NFL PICKS, SO WE'LL BRING HIM BACK FOR A CURTAIN CALL

This week, we're gonna ride the hot hand and let Barstow have another go. He earned it, along with some sweet cream, tuna, and catnip as a bonus. Here are Week 10's winners before they happen.

GREEN LIGHT!



EAGLES (+1/2) vs. Dolphins

Sam Bradford has solidified the Eagles offense, and the defense should handle an inconsistent Dolphins team that doesn't travel well. The Dolphins came into the season with high hopes and a reasonable schedule. Instead they still search for answers and breakthroughs.

Patriots (-1) at GIANTS

It's the regular season. The Giants can't beat the Patriots until February...late January at the earliest.

AMBER ALERT

Browns (+10.5) at STEELERS

The Steelers can't consistently move the chains with Landry Jones at the helm. Josh McCown is probable for the Browns and will put up enough points against a shaky Steelers secondary.

BRONCOS (-1/2) vs. Chiefs

Payton Manning needs just four yards to break the all-time NFL passing yardage record, currently held by Brett Favre. Star Chiefs running back Jamaal Charles is still out, and, with no ground game, the Chiefs will have a tough time stopping Denver's vicious blitz schemes that could have Alex Smith running for his life in the pocket.

RED ROVER!

Panthers (EVEN) at TITANS

Interim Titans head coach Mike Mularkey won his first game against the Saints last week, but the Panthers don't make as many mistakes as New Orleans. Their devastating D and well-balanced offense should be too much for a Tennessee squad deep in the throes of a rebuilding year, Marcus Mariota or no Marcus Mariota.

RAIDERS-Vikings OVER 36.5

Don't look now, but Minnesota is 6-2, and after two straight wins have tied the Packers for the lead in the NFC North. Quarterback Teddy Bridgewater can move the team and will play this weekend despite being concussed in last week's win against the Rams. Meanwhile Derek Carr, (nickname: "Who?") has thrown three or more TDs in his last three games.
