Week Ten Predictions

In terms of my predictions, week nine ended up being a solid one as I fared well straight up, and managed to go over .500 against the spread. With playoff races in play for many of this weeks games, it will be interesting to see how some teams respond to the “second half” of their season. At this point the majority of the league has had their bye meaning they’ve only played in eight games. Over the years, plenty of teams have rode strong second halves into impressive playoff runs, so it will be fun to watch the developments that take place down the stretch.

Last week: 9-4, Season: 92-40

Last week against the spread: 7-6, Season: 74-58

Game of the weak: Jaguars vs Ravens: A game between two teams with a combined four wins at this point in the year doesn’t figure to have much meaning. But then you remember: fantasy football if it isn’t already, is more popular than the actual games. Heck,  I texted a friend who’s a Jags fan following the Andrew Luck injury developments and he was more worried about replacing his quarterback than the team he roots for having a possible shot at a division title.

But After years of offensive ineptitude, the Jaguars suddenly have three players who in terms of fantasy points are among the ten best at their positions (Blake Bortles, Allen Robinson and Allen Hurns). That trio is going against a struggling Ravens secondary so they should be able to produce in a big way once again. Just keep that in mind if you’re at a sports bar this weekend and see a group of people crowding around this one in excitement. Jaguars 23 Ravens (-5.5) 26

Game of the week: Cardinals vs Seahawks: Believe it or not, but this could be a huge deciding factor in if we see the Seahawks involved in the postseason this year. With the Vikings/Packers runner up and Falcons having big leads as wildcards, the Seahawks look like they’ll have to win the division. Being two games behind the Cardinals heading into this, it would be awfully hard to make up a three game deficit with seven to play. All I know is this divisional matchup between two very talented teams and the noise of the “12th man” should be awfully fun to watch. Cardinals 20 Seahawks (-3.5) 17

Lions 17 Packers (-11.5) 34

Cowboys 23 Buccaneers (-1.5) 20

Panthers 24 Titans (+5.5) 17

Bears 20 Rams (-7.5) 24

Saints 28 Redskins (+1.5) 23

Dolphins 20 Eagles (-6.5) 27

Browns 14 Steelers (-5.5) 17

Vikings 23 Raiders (-3.5) 28

Patriots 34 Giants (+7.5) 24

Chiefs 17 Broncos (-6.5) 26

Texans 16 Bengals (-10.5) 28
