NFL Week 10 Top 3 Picks
The experts are betting the farm this weekend and ‘Big Ben’ and the Pittsburgh Steelers lead the way. After going 6-1 last week in NFL freebies, our handicappers are picking all point spread favorites this weekend. Favorites have taken a beating in recent weeks so it will be interesting to see if the expert can keep their streak alive with these ambitious picks.
Professional handicappers Bill Young, John Martin and Larry Cook give you the best they have to offer for week 10.
1) John Martin – Take Pittsburgh Steelers -10
The Pittsburgh Steelers look like the same Super Bowl Champs they were a couple years ago. They put up 35 first half points against the Ravens last week on Monday Night Football. You can only imagine what they will do to the overrated Cleveland Browns Sunday. Pittsburgh is 7-0-1 ATS in their last 8 meetings with the Browns, winning by at least 11 points in every game they covered the spread. The Steelers won 34-7 over Cleveland earlier this season. The Browns are intimidated by Pittsburgh and it shows every time they face one another. Pittsburgh is 17-6 ATS as a favorite of 3.5 to 10 points over the last 3 seasons. The Browns are 1-7 ATS in their last 8 games as a road underdog of 3.5-10.0 points. This is not a good spot for Cleveland Sunday. More from John
2) Bill Young – Washington Redskins -3
The Washington Redskins are one of the toughest teams in all of football. They put one of the best pass rushes in the league on their opponents. Donnovan McNabb was right when he said he wasn’t the only one that reporters should be blaming for the Eagles’ struggles this season. Philly has no receivers, as usual, and even worse their offensive line is one of the worst in the league. McNabb can’t excel if he has nobody to throw it to and no time to throw it. This is exactly what you will see again Sunday when the Washington defense puts all kinds of pressure on McNabb. The favorite is 8-3-1 ATS in the last 12 meetings. The Eagles are 2-9 ATS in their last 11 games after accumulating less than 90 yards rushing in their previous game. Philly won’t be able to run the ball on this defense Sunday either. The Redskins are 4-1-1 ATS in their last 6 meetings with the Eagles. They have this team figured out and will kick the Eagles while they are down Sunday. More from Bill
3) Larry Cook – Take Baltimore Ravens -4
The Baltimore Ravens will defend their home turf with a passion as they always do. The Ravens committed 6 turnovers against the Bengals in their first game of the season and still had a chance to send the game into overtime in the closing seconds. Now they get the Bengals at home and it’s going to get ugly in a hurry for Cincinnati. Not only are they struggling, but now they have to face a pissed off Ravens’ defense looking for revenge. The home team has won the last 4 meetings in this series. The favorite is 13-3 ATS in the last 16 meetings between the Ravens and Bengals. More from Larry
