NFL Week 10 look ahead lines

NFL Week 10 look-ahead lines are out. Despite coming off the bye and enjoying a mostly dominating season so far, the Detroit Lions opened as road underdogs against a Chargers team on a short week following Monday Night Football.

Every week, usually on Friday, TheLines will post look-ahead lines for the following week’s games, pulled from NFL betting sites. These look aheads give an early snapshot of the current market opinions of teams absent the week-to-week bias that can take hold following weekend results.

Week 10 NFL NFL Primetime Games

Thursday Night Football Odds

It’s the game everyone has been waiting for.

In all seriousness, any potential line movement for this game depends heavily on the status of Justin Fields. After the SNF stinker, it doesn’t look like Tyson Bagent is a viable NFL quarterback, and the Bears are expected to endure another road blowout in Week 9. If Fields can get clearance by game time, then bettors will most likely see Bears odds at -3 here. Whether that actually can happen is anyone’s guess.

Sunday Night Football Odds

The Raiders have turned the page on their team, and Aidan O’Connell will presumably serve as the team’s starting QB from here on out. He didn’t completely embarrass himself in his only other significant action against the Chargers, managing 6.1 YPA, but a 6.6 QBR paints a less rosy picture.

Still, he does get a chance to impress, facing a Giants defense that has been better of late but still sports mostly ugly numbers. They also just dealt helpful defensive piece Leonard Williams.

If O’Connell completely bombs, then Jets odds as high as -3 could pop up here. But they’ll be coming in off a short week with long travel, so the line creeping closer to a pick seems more likely.

Monday Night Football Odds

Denver comes into this one off the bye, while the Bills have a huge, marquee SNF game in Cincinnati. That alone should have bettors on alert for a possible letdown spot for Buffalo, and consider that the Bills also have big revenge game against the Jets on tap the following week.

Don’t expect much market movement here unless Josh Allen’s shoulder discomfort is a more severe ailment against the Bengals.

Bills Upcoming Schedule

Arizona Cardinals 4 – 13 – 0 Week 1: Sep. 8, 2024
Miami Dolphins 11 – 6 – 0 Week 2: Sep. 12, 2024
Jacksonville Jaguars 9 – 8 – 0 Week 3: Sep. 23, 2024

MORE POTENTIAL WEEK 9 IMPACT ON WEEK 10 LOOK-AHEAD LINES

Browns At Ravens

This is a fascinating market if one puts a couple of simple pieces together, or rather juxtaposes them. On the one hand, Ravens odds look like they will close -6 or -5.5 against the Seahawks in Week 9. The Seahawks just played the Browns, where they closed around -4, so the market is saying the Seahawks are clearly a better team than the Browns, given home field is worth around two points.

Yet, the Ravens opened as shorter favorites against the Browns?

Perhaps this is just the market baking in divisional underdogs, or perhaps it’s voicing confidence that Deshaun Watson will be healthy and play. It sounds like he’s around 50/50 to play in Week 9. It’s hard to see the Ravens closing shorter than -4.5 here, though, so they may have some value in early look-ahead lines.

Lions At Chargers

Detroit comes into this off the bye, so they won’t have the opportunity to move the market. However, the Chargers have a road test against a good defense in the Jets, in primetime to boot. This is exactly the sort of game they’ve flubbed pretty often under Brandon Staley.

Another one, and we’ll likely see Lions odds move to favorites. They could really use the bye with the injuries to their offensive line, so keep an eye on how that situation develops. It wouldn’t be a surprise to see them close as a slight favorite, given the huge rest and preparation advantage.

HOW TO USE NFL LOOK-AHEAD LINES

The look-ahead lines allow you a sneak peek at the projected lines for the following week’s games. This information from a leading sports betting site will help provide lessons in understanding lines and projections before the current week’s games are played.

Many bettors tend to overreact to the previous week’s scores and results. The NFL Week 10 look-ahead lines provide a sense of stability from the oddsmaker. They sometimes offer a clear, unbiased snapshot of perceived team strength.

Bettors can also gain an edge or find value in the lines once the weekend results take hold. See if you can find any over- or under-reactions by the market.

Of course, always take note of key injuries, travel and scheduling situations, and NFL power rankings. Adjustments are part of the process, along with accounting for teams’ strengths and weaknesses, against-the-spread angles, and personnel matchups.
