    Green Bay Packers vs Minnesota Vikings

    After receiving clearance from COVID-19 the day before the game, Aaron Rodgers was far from his best during week 10 as the Packers scored just 17 points in their victory over the Seattle Seahawks.

    Despite that though, the defense stood firm as they earned a clean sheet and stopped their opponents from scoring a single point in the game to earn yet another double-digit victory for the season.

    They now come into this game with the Vikings having been able to train again and with the number one seed in the NFC up for grabs, don't expect them to fall short against an inferior side.

    While they are on the road in this game, the Vikings just aren't close to being as good as the Packers are this season. With the spread only sitting a -2.5 for this game, it seems like a banker that the visitors will be able to continue their streak of being 9-0 ATS this season for another relatively comfortable victory.

    Pittsburgh Steelers vs Los Angeles Chargers

    After relatively decent starts to the season for both sides, there is no way they aren't highly disappointed by their performances in week 10.

    The Steelers were only able to earn a 16-16 tie with the Detroit Lions while the Chargers were smashed to a ten-point defeat by the Vikings at home.

    As it stands neither team is playing particularly well, but the Steelers' defense seems to be more reliable game-to-game right now and can cause chaos for the backfield. It's likely to be a low-scoring game but with big playoff implications in the AFC to come from the result, it's a must-see.

    The Chargers are at home yet again after their defeat last week, but there will be plenty of Steelers' support in the stands.

    Justin Herbert is really struggling as of late with just 6.64 yards per attempt and against a strong Steelers defense, he could be in for a very rough night on the field.

    It's likely to be a very close game and because of the difference in defensive reliability, I think the Steelers will be able to keep the score to within a field goal at the very least. With one of the better kickers in the league in Chris Boswell in their ranks too, don't be surprised if they actually win the game rather than just cover the spread.

    With how everything has played out recently, catching the Steelers with a +4.5 spread seems like a great bet.

    Seahawks to Beat Cardinals 

    Russell Wilson's return did not go to plan in the slightest as the Seahawks were demolished by the Packers last week, with the quarterback throwing two interceptions in the end zone for a pointless game.

    The result in week 10 means this week's game against the Cardinals is a must-win or they risk slipping to a 7-3 record and thus being out of the running for the playoffs already.

    Arizona will likely be without duo Kyler Murray and DeAndre Hopkins for the game which means the Seahawks will have a great opportunity to earn a victory in their home stadium in front of their fans.

    Wilson can't look much worse than he did last week, so an improved version of him can only be a positive for a team chasing just their fourth win of the season.

    It's hard to put too much stock into the performance last week, with the Packers' defense completely dominating and forcing the Seahawks to make errors and look clunky. But after a full week of practice, it's not farfetched to expect Wilson to be better and for Seattle to expose the not-so-great secondary of the Cardinals.

    Ultimately they should be able to claim an outright win on the night at +128 but you can get them on the spread at +2.5 with odds of +101 to further cement that status and make your bet a little bit easier and more likely to land.
