NFL Week 10 Opening Odds Roundup: Packers Biggest Favorite


Aaron Rodgers and the Green Bay Packers are the biggest favorite on the early NFL Week 10 betting lines at the sportsbooks as they host the Detroit Lions at Lambeau Field.

The Packers have dropped two in a row to unbeaten Denver and Carolina to fall into a tie for first in the NFC North with the Minnesota Vikings at 6-2. Rodgers and cohorts are 11.5-point favorites against visiting Detroit, which has only won one game.

The favored team has covered in the last six games of this NFC North matchup. According to the betting trends, the Packers are 7-1-1 SU in their last nine games after consecutive losses and are 6-2 SU in their last eight after losing as favorites.

The Lions are 4-2 ATS in their last six post-bye week games, but are 1-8 ATS in their last nine November games as underdogs.

The unbeaten Cincinnati Bengals are a double-digit favorite for the second week in a row. They opened as 13-point favorites against the Houston Texans for Monday, although that has been bet down to the 11-point range at many sportsbooks.

The Bengals are 5-0 SU and 4-1 ATS in their past five November games, but the Texans are riding a 6-1 ATS trend against their AFC rival.

Tom Brady and the unbeaten Patriots are a 7.5-point favorite against the New York Giants. The Patriots have not covered in their last four games against the Giants and are 7-21-2 ATS in their last 30 games following consecutive ATS wins.

Speaking of the Panthers, they are a 5-point road favorite against the Tennessee Titans. Carolina is 6-0 SU and 5-1 ATS in their last six games after winning as an underdog, as they did in their 37-29 win against the Packers. The Titans are on an 0-10 ATS streak in games following an ATS win.

For Thursday, the New York Jets opened as 3-point favorites against the Buffalo Bills in coach Rex Ryan’s return to MetLife Stadium. The Seattle Seahawks are also favored by 3 points in a Sunday Night Football showdown against the NFC West-leading Arizona Cardinals.

Coming off their first loss, the Denver Broncos sit as a 7-point favorite against Kansas City. Denver is 8-2 ATS in its last 10 games after losing as a favorite.

Elsewhere for the Week 10 board, the St. Louis Rams opened as a 9-point favorite against Chicago, the Philadelphia Eagles are a 7-point home favorite against Miami, Pittsburgh is a 4.5-point home favorite against Cleveland, and Dallas is a 1.5-point road dog at Tampa Bay.

The New Orleans Saints-Washington Redskins tilt opened as a pick ’em, and the Minnesota Vikings-Oakland Raiders game is off the board due to the uncertain status of Vikings QB Teddy Bridgewater, who was knocked out of Sunday’s game by a late hit.
