The NFL is back for Week 10 and one has to wonder if favorites will be able to get back on track. Last week was a ridiculous one for underdogs. The Jaguars shocker over the Bills was the big one, but we also saw upsets in the Broncos over the Cowboys, Browns over Bengals, Giants over Raiders, Falcons over Saints, Cardinals over 49ers, and Titans over Rams. Even the Bears gave the Steelers a whole lot of trouble on Monday to close the week.
I was all over the place with my picks last week. I went 8-6 overall, but got both my no confidence picks right. I offer up straight-up picks on Thursday broken down into four levels of confidence — high, medium, low, and no. A game with three asterisks (***) after it indicate a game where I’m picking the betting underdog to get the win.
We’re back with this week’s picks and I’m not feeling great about it. I’ve got five games in the high confidence level, and given how recent weeks have gone, I have to think at least one or two of those teams is going to lose this weekend. From the high confidence picks, I am probably least confident in Ravens over Dolphins and Steelers over Lions.
