NFL Week 10 Odds: Patriots favored in big matchup vs. Seahawks
The New England Patriots (7–1) return from their bye week as the only one-loss team in the AFC and one of two in the NFL overall. Tom Brady and company are listed as 7.5-point home favorites at sportsbooks monitored by OddsShark.com for their Sunday night matchup this week against the Seattle Seahawks (5–2–1).
The Seahawks have enjoyed some road success versus the Patriots, going 4–1 straight up and against the spread in the past five road meetings. However, only one of those games was played at Gillette Stadium, which opened in 2002. New England won that matchup 30–20 as three-point chalk in 2004 and earned a 28-24 victory in Super Bowl XLIX the last time the teams met on February 1, 2015.
There are a few more intriguing cross-conference games in Week 10 as well. The defending Super Bowl champion Denver Broncos (6-3) will try to avoid their fourth loss in six games when they visit the New Orleans Saints (4-4) as 1.5-point road underdogs. The Broncos have won the past four meetings, going 3–1 against the spread. The Saints have dropped six of seven SU following consecutive wins.
The Kansas City Chiefs (6–2) are another AFC West team on the road this week as they visit the Carolina Panthers (3–5) as three-point underdogs. The bad news for a Carolina team that has won two in a row is that the favored team is 1–4 ATS in the past five meetings.
The Green Bay Packers (4–4) will look to end a two-game skid when they visit the Tennessee Titans (4–5) as 2.5-point favorites. The Packers have lost three of the past four meetings with the Titans, who are 0-5 ATS in their last five as home underdogs.
The Dallas Cowboys (7–1) are riding a seven-game winning streak behind rookies Dak Prescott and Ezekiel Elliott, as they travel to Pittsburgh to take on the reeling Steelers (4-4) as 2.5-point road underdogs. Pittsburgh is mired in a three-game slump but has won seven of nine SU after losing as a favorite. Dallas is 5–2 SU in the past seven meetings.
And the Cincinnati Bengals (3–4–1) are back from their bye as well and visit the New York Giants (5-3) in the Monday night matchup as 2.5-point road underdogs. The visiting team is 0–7 SU in the past seven meetings, and the Bengals are 0-8-1 SU in their last nine versus teams above the .500 mark. The Giants are 7–2 SU in their previous nine at home against teams below .500.
