NFL Picks Week 10

pro football predictions

Games being played November 15 and 16, 2015

The spreads and over/under’s were taken from the MGM Grand Sportsbook as reported by on November 15, 2015.

This is the latest I’ve ever written and posted my picks article.  It is 10:00 AM EST on Sunday November 15, 2015 just to be clear.  If my predictions are perfect this week, please believe that there was no funny business or post editing involved.  I’ve sacrificed early week predictions for more thorough research, so hopefully, it pays off in a better success rate.

Dallas Cowboys at Tampa Bay Buccaneers
November 15, 2015
Pick: Cowboys -1

They Cowboys are a point favorite but I think they’re a lock to win this game.  Matt Cassel is starting to settle into the offense so scoring point should be an issue for Dallas.  Their defense is strong enough to hold Jameis Winston in check.  Tampa Bay has been impressive at times and I fully expect them to play well this game.  I look for this to be a surprisingly tough fought, entertaining game with Dallas pulling away at the end.

Carolina Panthers at Tennessee Titans
November 15, 2015
Pick: Panthers -4 1/2

I know Marcus Mariota has been great.  Frankly, I’m shocked how well he has played.  And, yes, in their first game with a new coach last week, Tennessee looked good.  But forget all that noise.  Lining up with three Tight Ends isn’t going to fly against Carolina.  I expect the Panthers to blow-out Tennessee in this game.  This is as certain as I’ve felt about a prediction all year.

Kansas City Chiefs at Denver Broncos
November 15, 2015
Pick: Broncos -4 1/2

I’m making this pick on the belief that whatever happened last week in Indianapolis was a fluke. Also, I’m picking this game on the fact that Denver plays better at home.  Their defense looks impenetrable when they’re in the comfortable surroundings of Sport Authority Field.  As long as Peyton Manning could manufacture 6 points I believe that will be enough to win.

Houston Texans at Cincinnati Bengals
November 16, 2015
Pick: Texans +10 1/2

The Texans have had a disappointing year and the Bengals are the darling of the league with their undefeated start (8-0).  But 10 1/2 points!!!  That’s ridiculous.  Houston is a competent NFL team that has underperformed only at a couple key positions.  They still can compete with any team in the league on any given day.  It is far more likely this game ends up being close than it does a blow-out.
