NFL Week 10 Matchup Odds: Green Bay Packers A Rare Home Underdog

Who Will be Throwing Passes in the Rams-Cardinals NFC West Showdown?

Coaching Matchup Could Steal the Show in Vegas

Who would have thought that the quarterback in the best situation from a health and production standpoint would be Dak Prescott of the Dallas Cowboys? The NFL injuries and uncertainty has played in a role in the ever-changing NFL Week 10 matchup odds.

Denver’s Russell Wilson, Green Bay’s Aaron Rodgers, Arizona’s Kyle Murray and Matthew Stafford of the Los Angeles Rams have had better seasons and all have dealt with or are dealing with injury issues. The Colts likely will go with Sam Ehlinger once again.

It could make for some unpredictable play in a season where things have hardly played to form.

The Week 10 NFL point spreads have seen movement in all three games as the week has gone on.

Here’s a look at the three late games on Sunday.

Colts vs Las Vegas

Game: Indianapolis Colts vs Las Vegas Raiders
Date; Time & Streaming:
Location: Allegiant Stadium
Moneyline: Colts +210, Raiders -260
Line: Raiders -6

The coaches will be front and center in this one. The Colts made the stunning move to name former star offensive lineman Jeff Saturday the interim head coach after firing Frank Reich. Saturday has no coaching experience and was a television analyst at the time of his appointment, bringing strong reaction when news of Saturday’s hiring became known. The Raiders continue to pick up steam as a solid favorite in the NFL Week 10 matchup odds.

Josh McDaniels, in his first season with the Raiders, agreed to become the Colts’ head coach in 2018 only to declare the same day that he would remain on the staff of the New England Patriots.

As for the game, receiver Davante Adams is coming off a huge game with a season-high 146 yards in a loss to Jacksonville; for a team that is winless on the road but has picked up both wins at home.

A key for the Colts will be the health of running back Jonathan Taylor. He is considered questionable as is center Ryan Kelly.

The teams are a combined 6-11 against the spread this season. Just one of the Colts’ nine games went over the total.

The NFL point spreads line opened with the Colts as 3.5-point underdogs before moving to the Raiders being a six-point favorite.

Cowboys vs Green Bay

Game: Dallas Cowboys vs Green Bay Packers
Date; Time & Streaming:
Location Lambeau Field
Moneyline: Cowboys -230, Packers +190
Line: Cowboys -5

How bad have things become in Green Bay? The Packers are five-point underdogs at home for just the third time since the start of the 2008 season. The line originally opened at three.

There have been mixed results in the two previous games with the Packers falling to Minnesota 16-0 in 2017 as an 8.5-point underdog and beating Detroit 45-41 in 2012 with the Lions favored by 6.5 points.

It has been a tough season for future Hall of Fame quarterback Aaron Rodgers as his 6.6 yards per attempt is the lowest in his 15 seasons as a starter. Rodgers has been held out of practice with a thumb injury.

The Cowboys could get running back Ezekiel Elliott back for the game, although he will need to do more in the late-week practices to be certain to return to action.

Green Bay has won the last three games with the Cowboys with an average of 63 points being scored in those contests.

The Cowboys are 6-2 against the spread this season. That matches Dallas’ overall record as the Cowboys look to remain in contention for the NFC East title.

Cardinals vs Rams

Game: Arizona Cardinals vs Los Angeles Rams
Date; Time & Streaming:
Location: Lambeau Field
Moneyline: Cardinals +105, Rams -125
Line: Rams -1

There are question marks surrounding both starting quarterbacks. Arizona’s Kyler Murray has been limited in practice due to a tender hamstring while Los Angeles Rams’ Super-Bowl winning QB Matthew Stafford is in concussion protocol. It is not making life easy for the people setting the NFL Week 10 Matchup Odds.

There is never a good time to be without your franchise QB, however, the 3-5 Rams and 3-5 Cardinals both need to start winning or run the risk of missing out on the postseason.

The Rams rank 31st out of 32 NFL teams in total offense while the Cardinals are 26th in yards allowed per game.
The Cardinals at +105 and the Rams priced at -125 in the moneyline shows how close this NFL matchup is. The line moved from 3 to 1 as the iffy situation of the quarterbacks is wreaking havoc with oddsmakers.

The Rams are 8-1-1 against the NFL odds in the last 10 games against Arizona. Just two of the eight games played by Los Angeles have gone over the total. The teams are a combined 6-10-1 against the spread so far this season.
