Week 10 of the NFL season features plenty of quality matchups and BetAmerica analyst Scott Shapiro is ready to take a run at them.
More than half of the league has reached the midway point in their 2019 NFL season and we have learned a lot. The Patriots and Saints are once again among the elites, Kyle Shanahan is a really good football coach, Aaron Rodgers is back as a legitimate MVP candidate and the Bears wish they did not trade up to get Mitchell Trubisky in the 2017 draft. Hopefully the second half of the campaign is as entertaining as the first half.
The Cowboys and Giants resume one of the greatest rivalries in the NFL on Monday night when the two teams meet at MetLife Stadium. Dallas has historically owned this matchup, posting a 67-46-2 record since 1960, and come in as heavy favorites over the sputtering Giants, who have lost four straight and rank a distant 28th in total defense. We have odds and analysis for that NFC East grudge match as well as all of the biggest Week 9 trends and storylines from around the National Football League.
We'll play against the Eagles and Bears, and also against a sagging Broncos in a difficult road setting. Our last two weeks have been profitable, with a 7-3 ATS record.
Week 8 may feature a number of potential mismatches and some questions about starting quarterbacks, but that doesn't mean money can't be made.
With the Dolphins, Redskins and Jets playing teams likely to make the playoffs, there are a few large spreads in Week 7, but for the most part there are a slew of evenly matched games to sink our teeth into.
The season is still young, but there have been some big moves in the odds to win the Super Bowl. Now is the time to determine if some of these recent movers are real contenders or just early season pretenders.
It turns out Kirk Cousins isn’t the weakest link after all. The Vikings QB responded to criticism on Sunday by throwing for 333 yards and four TDs in Minnesota’s 38-20 trashing of Philadelphia. “Captain Kirk” will have a chance to prove that his latest outing wasn’t a fluke this coming weekend when the Vikings travel to Ford Field to take on Matthew Stafford and the Lions.
Now that every team in the league has played at least four games, we have reached the the quarter point of the NFL season. There have been some surprises and some upsets but also some expected results. There is still a long way to go, but if the season were to suddenly get called off today, here is who would win each end-of-season award.
Favorites took it on the chin, as underdogs went 11-4 ATS in Week 4. A trio of vulnerable favorites are among our five picks this week.
