The NFL is back for Week 10 of its schedule, and the OddsShark Computer is going heavy on the chalk. However, three predicted underdog wins against the spread include two conference matchups and one inter-conference contest.

The Baltimore Ravens are 5.5-point favorites at home against the Jacksonville Jaguars. The Ravens are 0-6 ATS in their last six home games, and the computer has them winning but failing to cover again by a final score of 24.5-23.7.

The Carolina Panthers are 5.5-point favorites on the road against the Tennessee Titans. Carolina is coming off a big win and cover against the Green Bay Packers and might be overlooking the Titans. The computer has them winning by a final score of just 23.8-21.2.

And the Green Bay Packers, still second on the odds to win Super Bowl 50 despite their recent skid, are an 11.5-point favorite at home against the Detroit Lions. The Lions are 2-6 ATS in their last eight games against the Packers, and 1-5 ATS in their last six at Lambeau, but the computer has them covering in a 27.2-17.7 SU loss.

One game that could prove tough to predict has the Pittsburgh Steelers hosting the Cleveland Browns as a five-point favorite at sportsbooks monitored by Ben Roethlisberger is not expected to play, but unexpectedly practiced on Thursday. The computer predicts a 24.2-18.6 Steelers victory.

The closest line of Week 11 has New Orleans between a pick ‘em and -1 against Washington. The computer has the Saints covering in a 27.5-23.4 victory in spite of their abysmal defense.

Sunday concludes with an NFC West matchup on Sunday Night Football. The Seattle Seahawks are a field goal favorite at home against the Arizona Cardinals. The Cardinals under Bruce Arians are 15-1 ATS when underdogs of less than a touchdown, but the OddsShark Computer predicts a slim Seahawks cover with a 23.8-19.3 victory.

The week wraps up with a big favorite projected to cover on Monday Night Football. The Cincinnati Bengals are a 10.5-point favorite at home against the Houston Texans. The Texans are 6-1 ATS in their last seven games against Cincinnati, but the computer predicts a 30.2-18.8 victory for the Bengals.
