NFL Week 10: The Best Betting Odds and Predictions From MaximBet
Bet on Ben Roethlisberger’s Steelers to beat the Lions and turn $10 into $325 with this week’s four-team parlay.
What’s frustrating about dropping our “MaximBet Lock” last week is who did it.
I’ve missed on three this season in total. The first was thanks to Tom Brady, who has been making my life miserable for the last two decades or so. There was nothing new there.
After Brady, we won for a few weeks until I put my trust in the Cincinnati Bengals. Something my friend that roots for the Bengals told me was a huge mistake. He was right.
Last week, though, that one hurt. To lose thanks to a Lamar Jackson overtime turnover? Et tu Lamar?
Of course, we nailed the upset pick, predicted the outcomes of both worst games and was a Packers win away from hitting my second four-game parlay of the season, so the week wasn’t a total wash.
But my stated goal every week is perfection. Close only counts with horse shoes, hand grenades and Aaron Rodgers apologies.
So, I have perused this week’s NFL odds at MaximBet to regroup and, much like Rodgers’ second appearance after his COVID-19 diagnosis on the Pat McAfee Show, come back humbled and attempt to do some damage control.
Lock Of The Week
Detroit Lions at Pittsburgh Steelers (-9)
The Steelers, thanks to a little official help, come into this game on a four-game win streak a month after everyone was calling them done, burying Ben Roethlisberger in the cold, cold ground and all but hiring Mike Tomlin as the new head coach at USC.
The Lions had a bye to prepare for this one, sharpening their teeth and preparing to gnaw on every knee at Heinz Field. It won’t matter. Because Jared Goff is now 0-15 without Sean McVay as his head coach, Detroit won’t be able to stop Pittsburgh’s run game and nine months from Sunday, Goff will give birth to T.J. Watt’s baby after the multi-sack performance the all-pro edge rusher will unleash.
Worst Games Of the Week
Jacksonville Jaguars at Indianapolis Colts (-10.5)
Buffalo Bills (-12.5) at New York Jets
Both these lines are high and I don’t trust either of them. The Jaguars have won two games this season (including last week’s shocker against the Bills) when they should have won exactly zero. Mike White might turn out to be the second coming of Kurt Warner for the New York Jets for all we know. So not only are these games awful, but they’re scary too.
I think Buffalo will bounce back because they have to, right? And the Colts’ front will cause way too many issues for Jacksonville. Still, those spreads are not to be trusted.
Take the Colts moneyline (-450) and/or the Bills moneyline (-625). Or, you know, steer clear. They’re the worst games for a reason.
A Shocking Upset Of The Los Angeles Rams?
Stan Kroenke bought controlling interest in the Rams in 2010, so he might be shocked to learn that the team is, in fact, owned by Jimmy Garoppolo and Kyle Shanahan. Garoppolo, as a starter for the 49ers, has never lost to the Rams and Shanahan is currently riding a four-game win streak over his best bud Sean McVay in Los Angeles.
Does that mean I think the Rams will lose? Just like last week, I don’t. But, I do think Rams, currently 4-point favorites at MaximBet, on the road after getting embarrassed by the Tennessee Titans defensive line (a strength of these 49ers as well), should make everyone a little nervous. I think L.A. wins, but not by four.
Take the 49ers at +4.
Drop $10 On A Four-Team Parlay
How did Hamilton, an arrogant immigrant, orphan, bastard, whoreson somehow endorse Thomas Jefferson, his enemy? A man he’s despised since the beginning? Because Jefferson talked him into laying a bill with his face on it on this four-team parlay.
We don’t think the 49ers will win, but cover. But what if they do win? Like I said, it’s not like Garoppolo and Shanahan haven’t made life hell for McVay’s boys over the last few seasons. So, let’s take that Niners moneyline (+172) and add three more to it.
I like the Cleveland Browns (+115), the New Orleans Saints (+125) and the Seattle Seahawks (+155).
The Browns have the running attack to dominate the New England Patriots and the Pats are still a team QBed by a rookie.
The Tennessee Titans are riding high after an upset of the Los Angeles Rams last Sunday, but their offense did absolutely nothing in the game. You think the Saints defense can’t shut them down like the Rams did?
And, lastly, Aaron Rodgers is coming off two weeks of COVID-19, where he’s not been able to work out, run or toss so much as a tennis ball. The 3-5 Seattle Seahawks are playing for their football lives at this point, as a sixth loss would probably knock them out of the postseason with half a year to go and they’re getting their own All-Universe QB back in Russell Wilson.
A $10 parlay bet win on these four teams pays $325.
