Its hard to believe that Week 10 Football is already here but luckily so are my NFL betting tips for this weekend. Week 9 wasn’t kind to me on my point spread recommendations, but I won on the moneylines which I will take. For this week’s football picks I thought I would take an in-depth look at the Seattle Seahawks and New England Patriots matchup. This is like a repeat of Super Bowl XLIX but without all of the recrimination. As always, combine my picks with your own handicapping!
Week 10 Football – Seattle Seahawks vs. New England Patriots
This is shaping up to be one of the most eagerly anticipated games of the weekend. The perennial powerhouse that are the New England Patriots host the Seattle Seahawks at home at Gillette Stadium. Helmed by master tactician Bill Belichick, the Pats are tied atop the NFL with a 7-1 record and they don’t look like they are slowing down. New England is a -7.5 favorite for this tilt and for good reason.
Smart NFL Picks – New England Patriots
New England’s one loss occurred during the four game suspension of Tom Brady at the start of the season. Since that time, no team has given the Pats any kind of real trouble. Bank on the Patriots to win the AFC at -125– and they are a good shot to win the Super Bowl at +200 although that is short value.
Online Football Bets – Seattle Seahawks
The Seahawks are a respectable 5-2 and are +285 dogs heading into Sunday’s contest with the Pats. Although they are on top of the lacklustre NFC West, the Hawks have struggled to finish off opponents and at times have looked fragile. They are +320 to win the NFC and +800 to win the Super Bowl– I like the NFC bet better than the championship wager.
When it comes to Week 10 football, it is only a top 10 defense that is keeping them competitive when Russell Wilson and the offense are struggling. Pete Caroll is an excellent coach who has done wonders with a Beast Mode- less Seattle team, but we have seen him been bested by Sith Lord Belichick before. I think Seattle is in tough here and the only question is whether they can beat the +7.5 point spread.
Betting on Football – Patriots Beat the Seahawks
So what the is the final analysis here? The Pats are as good as always and are playing at home against a team that can have trouble scoring points. The Hawks have a top 10 defense but the Patriots defense is ranked #15 so maybe that’s a wash. Moneylines are always tough on profits and I don’t think there is an upset here. The Total or Over/Under bet is at 49 however, and there may be opportunity for some profit there. I think you could probably take NE at -7.5, but I think I like the Under 49 even better. Two good defenses on the field and so this game will end up being grittier than the total suggests.
