NFL Week 10 implied team totals

Each week during the NFL season, TheLines will compile a list of implied team totals. In other words, NFL Week 10 implied team totals are how many points each team is expected to score this week, based on simple math with the spread and over/under.

Readers can make use of these team totals in a variety of ways for NFL Week 10 and beyond. Those ways include handicapping props, making fantasy decisions, etc.

All lines come from DraftKings Sportsbook as of Nov. 8 and are rounded to the nearest whole number.

Highest NFL Week 10 Implied Team Totals

Kansas City Chiefs

The NFL’s top scoring team is right where you’d think they’d be in implied team totals– the top. The Chiefs host the Jaguars this week, a team that’s come back down to Earth after a hot 2-0 start. Jacksonville is 23rd in defensive EPA per play over the last three weeks, but they’ve faced inept offenses like the Broncos and Raiders. Oddsmakers expect little resistance from the Jags in Kansas City this week.

A high point total mixed with the Chiefs being heavy favorites project them for a favorable 30 points this week.

Philadelphia Eagles

You may as well be reading off the list of top scoring offenses in the NFL. The Eagles sit just behind the Chiefs on the season and this week in implied team totals at 27.5 points. They play the Commanders, who have been playing good defense lately, particularly against the rush. They held Dalvin Cook to 2.8 yards per carry a week ago and Jonathan Taylor to 4.8 a carry the week before. While the Eagles offer more of a rushing scheme that attacks space and the edge more often, they’ll encounter a tough Washington defensive front.

The Commanders are also middle of the pack in explosive passing plays allowed. While the Eagles offense is extremely efficient, they aren’t going against a pushover defense in Week 10.

San Francisco 49ers

Few teams are as listless against the run game than the Chargers are. The 49ers host them on Sunday Night Football this week and will be able to move the ball up and down the field on LA. Was a bye week able to correct the defensive issues? Unlikely.

It’s also worth noting the injuries on the Chargers’ defense, most recently DT Austin Johnson; he joins JC Jackson as key defenders not playing. The Chargers just don’t have the personnel to match what Kyle Shanahan and the 49ers can do on offense.

Indianapolis Colts

No team in the NFL has so outwardly given up like the Colts have. Despite playing one of the NFL’s worst defenses in the Raiders, the Sam Ehlinger-led Colts offense is expected to fizzle. Rightfully so: not only did they bench Matt Ryan for the season, but they fired Frank Reich and replaced him with Jeff Saturday– the first head coach in the NFL with no pro or college coaching experience. Zero coaches on the staff have called plays before, either.

Expect the Colts to be permanent members of this section for the remainder of the season.

Houston Texans

The Texans offense at this point of the season is just sad. They managed to score 14 on the Eagles’ stout defense, which felt like an accomplishment. This week, they take on a Giants team coming off a bye who are excellent at ball control and play halfway decent defense. Xavier McKinney is on the NFI list, but Davis Mills and the Texans D-list receiving corps aren’t the team to expose that.

Houston is a weekly resident at the bottom of implied team totals and they’re here once again.

Washington Commanders

Taylor Heinicke and the Commanders offense have the tall task of playing the Eagles’ defense on the road in primetime. Recent outings for Washington include 17, 17, 23, 12, and 10 points; the last time they played Philly (Week 3), they were stifled to just eight points and 3.2 yards per play. That was under Carson Wentz, but even Heinicke’s high-flying antics aren’t enough to boost oddsmakers’ confidence in this team.

Do note that the Eagles are down star rookie Jordan Davis in the middle, but the addition of Robert Quinn pretty much offsets that.

Other Notable Implied Team Totals

Buffalo Bills

Josh Allen is being examined this week for a UCL injury after an awkward bend at the end of the Jets game last week. It’s an injury he’s had before– and notably played through– but the line came crashing down from -9.5 on the lookahead line. Depending on whether or not Allen goes this week will certainly change the spread and point total, therefore changing the Bills’ implied team total. However, a source close to the team tells our Injury Expert Will Carroll that Josh Allen will not play.
