The NFL kicks off Week 10 with the New York Jets hosting the Buffalo Bills on Thursday Night Football. The Jets are a 2.5-point betting favorite at sportsbooks monitored by OddsShark.com in a game in which they welcome back former head coach Rex Ryan.
Quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick will be starting for the Jets, but is expected to have surgery the next day on the thumb of his non-throwing hand.
The biggest line of the week belongs to the Green Bay Packers. They are a 11.5-point favorite at home against their divisional rival, the Detroit Lions. The Packers have lost two straight and failed to cover in their last three, but are 5-1 ATS in their last six home games against the Lions according to the OddsShark NFL Database.
The closest line of the week has New Orleans ranging between a pick ‘em and 1.5-point favorites on the road against Washington. New Orleans is 2-2 ATS on the road this season, while Washington is 2-2 ATS at home this season. The Saints are 1-5-1 ATS in their last seven November games, while Washington is 1-7 ATS in its last eight November games.
Only two other road teams are favorites in Week 11. The New England Patriots are a 7.5-point favorite at the New York Giants. The Patriots have lost three straight to the Giants, including two Super Bowl appearances, and the Giants are the only NFL team New England has not beaten since 2008.
The Carolina Panthers are a 4.5-point favorite heading out on the road to face the Tennessee Titans. The Panthers are 6-2 ATS this season, and 5-2 ATS in their last seven games as a favorite. The Titans are 4-4 ATS this season, having alternated ATS wins and losses the last four weeks. They are 0-10 SU and ATS in their last 10 games following an ATS win.
The Pittsburgh Steelers are a 4.5-point favorite at home against the Cleveland Browns. Ben Roethlisberger is not expected to play, although he says he has not ruled himself out yet. Josh McCown sat out Tuesday practice, and his status remains in question for the Browns.
The week wraps up on Monday Night Football with the second biggest line of the week. The Cincinnati Bengals are a double-digit home favorite for the second straight week, this time against the Houston Texans. The Bengals are 7-0-1 ATS, while the Texans are 3-5 ATS.
