NFL Best Bets – Week 10

Cleveland Browns @ Miami Dolphins

The Miami Dolphins look to maintain their perfect streak in games Tua Tagovailoa starts and finishes.

Vegas has been nailing the spread of Miami games. Since Tua returned, the winning margin has fallen within a point of the spread. After defeating Chicago last week by three — as a four-point favorite — they’ll shoot for a bigger win this week.

Jacoby Brissett and the Browns are trying to keep things afloat while they wait for the return of Deshaun Watson.

Cleveland is currently two games back of a Wild Card slot. Brissett will need to win one, if not two, of the next three to give Watson a shot at the playoffs. That’s a tall order, though, as he faces Miami, Buffalo, and Tampa Bay. Watson may be handed the team with a 3-8 record.

As for the game at hand, while the Browns do have a strong defense, there has yet to be a defense that can shut down Tua. On top of that, the Browns’ offense has been extremely inconsistent, and this should be another easy win for the Phins.

Miami -3.5 (-110) & Over 49.5 (-110)

Dallas Cowboys @ Green Bay Packers

The Packers have hit rock bottom after losing to the Detroit Lions, and worse than losing to the Lions is only scoring nine points on the Lions. So now the question is, will they stay there?

Reigning MVP, Aaron Rodgers, enters Week 10 with a 3-9 record. However, due to an underperforming NFC, the Packers are still just a game and a half out of playoff contention. If they can right the ship quickly, they can still make a playoff run.

As for the Cowboys, they are having a tremendous season, but with a 6-2 record, they are two games back in the NFC East. This division has had a wild turnaround after sending a 7-9 team to the playoffs just two years ago.

Dallas holds a tie with the Giants for the first Wild Card slot, and that’s likely as high as they will go in the standings, with the Eagles still hanging a zero in the L column.

This is a pretty straight forward pick. Prescott has been carving up opponents since returning from the injured list. He defeated Detroit by 18 and Chicago by 20. Coming off a bye, they should make quick work of the Packers.

While we’re all just waiting on the Packers to make their bounce back, bettors should not lay money on them until they have shown they can win again.

Dallas -4.5 (-110)
