Welcome back for Week 10 of the 2020 NFL season. We opened with the Colts handling their business against the Titans on Thursday Night Football and I am off to an inauspicious 0-1 start in my weekly picks. The Titans were a one-point favorite when I made my pick, and it was not pretty.
Last week was brutal for me, going 3-11 with my picks and 1-4 with my five best bets of the weekend. It drops me to 62-69-2 on total picks and 25-20 on my best bets. A year ago, I went 131-117-4, finishing with a 52.78 win percentage. That’s barely turning a profit, but for a season’s worth of picks, that’s not too bad. I did not track my best bet percentage over the course of the season, but will make sure to do that this year.
I’m going to pick my five “best bets” each week, similar to what you might use in the DraftKings Pro Football Pick ‘Em National Championship. Lines are moving so some of the lines below will be different from what you see on game day. Look for value where you can!
In the meantime, here are my five picks of choice for this weekend:
12:44 p.m. update: After sleeping on the Lions-Washington game, I’ve decided to back off that one and swap in Chargers over Dolphins.
