‘Intern Mike’ Has His Week 10 NFL ‘Locks of the Week’, Are You Ready?
Season Record: 25-19-1 .568 W/L%
Cleveland Browns @ Baltimore Ravens, 1:00 PM, FOX
Both of these teams are coming off dominant performances in Week 9. In their wins this season, the Ravens haven’t exactly let the other team hang around. Just one of their seven wins this season is by less than a touchdown.
Lamar Jackson has won six straight against Cleveland, and not much tells me this week won’t be seven. Baltimore's defense is more than capable of neutralizing this pedestrian Deshaun Watson led offense. Trust Lamar and this stout Ravens defense in this bout.
PICK: Ravens -6.5
San Francisco 49ers @ Jacksonville Jaguars, 1:00 PM, FOX
The bye week came at a perfect time for the Niners.
Three straight losses has people in San Fran questioning if what Brock Purdy achieved last season was just a flash in the pan. The addition of DE Chase Young at the deadline adds to an already elite defensive line for the Niners, a group that will give Lawrence fits this Sunday.
The Jags are also off a bye, and winners of five straight. Taking the desperate team seems like the play here. I expect a much more polished version of Purdy in this one en route to a road victory.
PICK: 49ers -3
Detroit Lions @ Los Angeles Chargers, 4:05 PM, CBS
The Chargers are fresh off a dominant performance on the defensive side of the ball. As a Jet fan, I can say it was largely due to the ineptitude of the Zach Wilson-led offense.
The Lions are off a bye and will be getting their bruiser RB David Montgomery back for this one. The Chargers on the other hand will be on just six days of rest, and the crowd in LA will be majority Lions fans. Take Goff to impress in his hometown in this game.
PICK: Lions -3
Washington Commanders @ Seattle Seahawks, 4:25, FOX
This Seattle team is off a brutal loss in Baltimore.
It was a game where they couldn’t get anything going on offense, whether it was through the air or on the ground. This week they welcome in a surprisingly high flying offense in the Commanders and Sam Howell.
This is a great bounce back spot for Pete Carroll’s Seahawks. Taking a good team off a bad loss is a betting formula that has held tried and true for all of time. Back at home, take Seattle to cover this relatively large number.
PICK: Seahawks -5.5
New York Giants @ Dallas Cowboys, 4:25 PM, FOX
It seems as if the Giants have packed it in for the season.
In what was supposed to be an exciting year for the G-Men, has turned into an unmitigated disaster on all fronts. Tommy DeVito will get the nod in this one, against a ferocious Dallas pass rush.
In their five wins this season, the Cowboys have won four of them by a margin of 23 or more points. I can’t envision a scenario in which this is not a blowout. The Giants would have to be nearly perfect on defense, and get some breaks on the other side of the ball. It’s a massive number, but one that Dallas will have no problem covering.
PICK: Cowboys -17
