NFL 2021 Week 10 Picks: Patriots Favourites to Beat Browns

NFL 2021 Week 10 Picks: Patriots Favourites to Beat Browns

Cleveland Browns vs New England PatriotsSunday, November 14th, 2 pm ET

Despite the Patriots' poor form so far at home this season (1-4), they come into this game as the clear favorites against a Brown's side that picked up a victory last week.

The Patriots were beaten by all of the Cowboys (OT), Buccaneers, and Saints this season at Foxboro but they should expect to have a slightly easier ride in this game with the Browns clearly not quite up to the same level as those sides.

Bill Belichick will need to come up with a plan for his defensive line to stop or at least slowdown Baker Mayfield in the pocket. With a spread of less than a field goal, the Patriots should be able to cover it if they can secure a much-needed victory.

Back the overs!

You may not know this from watching them, but the Patriots have a top-ten scoring offense this season. With an average of just under 26 points per game, the influence of rookie quarterback Mac Jones is growing with each game the team plays.

Both teams will likely use their rushing attacks to great effect during this game meaning the likelihood of them both hitting the 20-point mark is high so the over has a great chance of landing.

With Nick Chubb healthy again and the Odell Beckham Jr situation firmly in the rear-view mirror now, it should be a great game with plenty of points on the board.

Atlanta Falcons vs Dallas CowboysSunday, November 14th, 2 pm ET

When you talk about bad days at the office, they don't get much worse than what the Cowboys suffered last week against the Broncos. They were 30-0 down at one point at home and struggled all day to sustain any sort of offensive momentum during the game.

They'll look to rebound against the Falcons this week who are coming off a big win against the Saints in New Orleans.

On paper, the Cowboys are quite comfortably the better and more talented team, so expect them to play at a faster pace and with more urgency in this game to get back to winning ways and get momentum back on their side.

With that said, Matt Ryan is playing very well for the Falcons right now and will cause the defensive line a lot of problems. Since week 3 he is averaging 282.2 passing yards per game and has a passer rating of 106.1, so this game could end up being much closer than anticipated.

Back the Falcons spread!

Ultimately I think the Cowboys will get back to winning ways in this game, but the Falcons are the best bet with a spread of +9.

With a former MVP at quarterback, they have the firepower on offense to keep pace with the Cowboys and if they can contain the rushing attack then they'll be able to keep the scoreline quite close.

With a poor defensive play so recent for the Cowboys, the Falcons are likely to push them hard and that makes the spread the best bet.

Minnesota Vikings vs Los Angeles ChargersSunday, November 14th, 2 pm ET

Statistically, this game is the worst rushing defense in the league vs one of the best rushing offenses in the league, which means points galore are expected.

The Chargers are allowing over 160 rushing yards per game this season while the Vikings are averaging nearly 125 yards per game on the ground. That's a huge advantage in favor of the home side, and it doesn't help that the Chargers have been decimated by injuries in their secondary.

With Justin Jefferson and Adam Thielen visiting town now, this will be a super close game with great entertainment value almost guaranteed.

Back the underdog!

It's not often that this is the play, but the Vikings are a great price for this game with their spread set at +2.5.

They have lost each of their last two games on the final possession, meaning they are always in games until late on. Seeing out games has been a problem for both teams in this game though, with the Chargers also struggling to hold onto leads.

With such a close game on paper, the price of -103 for the team to earn a victory based on the handicap seems like the perfect bet for this game to earn you some cash.
