What is your favorite parlay for NFL Week 10?
Buffalo Bills +2.5 / Atlanta Falcons +13 / Lions/Bears u42.5
The wheels are officially flying off the wagon in Cleveland as the Browns suffered one of their worst losses of the season last week in Denver. Officially 2-6 on the season (and 2-6 ATS), the Browns now welcome to town a Bills steam quietly humming along at 6-2 and allowing just 16.4 points per game. Things are getting ugly in Atlanta where the Falcons have lost six straight and show no signs of improvement. As a general rule of thumb for me in the NFL, however, 13 points is just way too many for divisional opponents who know each other as well as these two. Lastly, in this Lions vs. Bears game, I’m struggling to find where 42 points are supposed to come from. The Lions’ offense has been efficient, but they now head to Chicago to face a Bears’ defense allowing just 3.67 yards per rush and 18 points per game. On the other side of the ball, the Bears are one of the league’s worst offenses behind Mitch Trubisky and scoring just 17.8 points per game. At nearly 7-to-1 odds, I love the value this parlay offers.

Carolina Panthers +5.5 / Pittsburgh Steelers +4 / Ravens/Bengals u45.5
The Panthers are simply not getting enough respect. Outside of a debacle two weeks ago in San Francisco, the Panthers have won five of their last six games by an average of 10.4 PPG. The Chargers’ defense confused Aaron Rodgers last week by bringing relentless pressure. He now gets to face a Carolina defense that leads the league with 34 sacks. The Steelers are a great bet as home underdogs this week, particularly because of the struggles of Rams quarterback Jared Goff on the road. Yes, the Rams are coming off a bye, but I love the momentum Pittsburgh has built during their current three-game winning streak. Lastly, the Ravens head to Cincinnati off a huge win against the previously unbeaten Patriots. Baltimore’s defense will be licking its chops to get after Ryan Finley who will be making his first NFL start. Instead of toying with the point spread and wondering if this is a letdown spot for Baltimore, just take the under as the Bengals should have trouble scoring in this one.
