NFL Line Watch Week 10

Each week during the pro football season, AAA Sports looks at the NFL odds and tells you which spread to bet now, which one to bet later, and which total to watch as the week plays out.

Game to bet now

Pittsburgh at Indianapolis (+10)

Wasn’t it just a few weeks ago that Ben Roethlisberger was questioning whether he wanted to even play football? Things have certainly changed, as the Steelers now are riding a three-game win streak, have taken complete control of the AFC North and at 6-2 are tied with New England for the best record in the AFC. Pittsburgh will play this one coming off its bye week against a Colt team with a newbie quarterback and is in no way prepared to compete against elite teams. The line on this one has already crossed the Rubicon from 9.5 to 10, and is unlikely to change again unless heavy money comes crashing down on one side or the other.

Game to wait on

Houston at Los Angeles Rams (-11)

DeShaun Watson’s season-ending injury and subsequent loss to the Colts this past Sunday has rocked the Texans into considering signing Colin Kaepernick, a move that would do the league a solid by taking pressure off outspoken owner Bob McNair and putting an end to the QB’s embarrassing suit against the NFL. The Texans are in a deep hole at any rate, and now they have to contend with the most surprising team in the league. The Rams (6-2 SU and 6-2 ATS) have morphed into an offensive power, scoring the most points in the NFC West by a 74-point margin, and the second-most in the NFC. There are some moving parts in this line, not the least of which is to find early betting reaction to LA’s 51-point outburst against the Giants this past Sunday. The line probably hasn’t firmed up yet.

Total to watch

New York Giants at San Francisco (42)

The Niners will eventually turn their team over to Jimmy Garoppolo, so what better place to open up their new toy than at home against one of the worst defensive teams in the entire league? The 42 number is obviously a nod to both team’s offensive shortcomings, but it ignores the fact that neither has shown any interest in stopping opponents. San Francisco is ranked 27th overall defensively, and the Giants are 30th.
