5 betting tips for Week 10 of the NFL season

Need a cheat sheet or some help spotting situational edges with a new week of NFL action fast approaching? We've got you covered.

Here are five spots to look at as you do your homework for Week 10.

Andy Reid slumping as a double-digit favorite

If you thought Kansas City Chiefs spreads were primed for inflation following their red-hot start, Week 10's 16.5-point line over the Arizona Cardinals is officially the longest in the NFL this season.

The Chiefs are 5-0 to the under in their last five times laying double digits under head coach Andy Reid - averaging a total score of 28.4 points - and 1-4 against the spread, losing two of those games outright.

Also, Arizona is on the road and coming off its bye week. Teams on the road following the bye are on a 60-23 run (72.2 percent) against the spread after all three in last weekend's situation - the Titans, Chargers, and Falcons - covered in their respective games.

Seahawks streaking to the under on the road against divisional opponents

The Seattle Seahawks versus the Los Angeles Rams will be a rematch of Week 5, when the two teams combined for more than 60 points in the Rams' 33-31 road victory. However, recent history points to a lower-scoring affair in Los Angeles for Week 10.

The Seahawks are on an 8-1 run to the under when playing on the road against NFC West opponents. Only one of the nine games topped 42 points while five registered fewer than 32.

Falcons scuffling versus the AFC

It was just last season that the Atlanta Falcons needed a fourth-quarter comeback over the New York Jets to avoid being swept by the AFC East. It's been a common theme under head coach Dan Quinn, as Atlanta's 0-8 against the spread in its last eight games against non-conference opponents. The Falcons lost outright to the Cincinnati Bengals as 3.5-point favorites and were handled by 24 on the road against the Pittsburgh Steelers this season. The Falcons are currently -4 in most shops for Sunday's game against the Cleveland Browns.

Cowboys' offense a no-show on the road

The Dallas Cowboys' offense has been mired in an offensive slump this season, ranking No. 26 in the league in points scored with 19.2 per game. Playing away from home has been an even bigger obstacle for Dallas dating back to last season, as the Cowboys are 6-0 to the team total under, averaging just 13.3 points per game over that stretch. Against the Philadelphia Eagles on prime time in Week 10, their number should be around the 18.5-19 range for bettors who want to jump on the bandwagon.

Consider Blake Bortles and the Jaguars in Indianapolis

Not only do the Jacksonville Jaguars fall into the road-team-off-a-bye angle, but this is a matchup that Blake Bortles has thrived in. The Jags signal-caller has posted an average quarterback rating of 105.3 with 10 touchdowns and zero interceptions in the team's last six games against the Indianapolis Colts, while the team is 6-0 against the spread in that span. Jacksonville is currently a three-point underdog, and if history repeats itself, a sprinkle bet on the moneyline might not be the worst option in the entire world.
