Expert NFL Week 10 Picks to Bet ATS

Why Bet On NY Jets?

The Jets ended a three-game losing streak with a 34-21 win over Buffalo last Thursday. Matt Forte ran for two touchdowns four days after complaining the Jets didn’t run the ball enough. Forte scored on runs of 10 and 5 yards and had 14 carries for 77 yards. Quarterback Josh McCown had a 10-yard scramble to open the scoring, and New York rushed for 194 yards overall. McCown was the starting QB for the Bucs in 2014. He has been an ideal fit in coordinator John Morton’s short-pass attack, having completed at least 60 percent of his passes in nine games. He already has six games with a 100-plus passer rating – McCown had only 16 in his first 14 seasons. Robby Anderson is leading the Jets with 483 yards and a 15.6-yard average on 31 catches with four touchdown receptions — including one in each of the last three games. Jets linebacker Jordan Jenkins was named AFC Defensive Player of the Week with his two sacks and a forced fumble against the Bills. He’s the second Jet to win it this season as Terrence Brooks won it in Week 3. In the last three games, Jets LB Darron Lee has notched two 11-tackle games, three tackles for loss, his second sack and a pass defense. Lee started slowly but right now he’s moved to the top of the defensive charts with 10 tackles for loss/no gain, 6.5 of those TFLs, and including those two sacks 12 tackles at or behind the line. New York has been a shockingly highly competitive team — a credit to Todd Bowles and his coaching staff. They lost three games by seven points or fewer, with only one blowout defeat. If they hadn’t lost their poise in a couple of fourth quarters, they could be 6-3 instead of 4-5. New York will be without WR Jeremy Kerley the next four weeks due to suspension for violating the NFL policy on performance enhancing substances. Kerley is fourth on the team with 227 receiving yards this season. He signed a one-year deal with the Jets in early September. Bowles expects rookies Chad Hansen and ArDarius Stewart to see increased playing time in Kerley’s absence.

Why Bet On Tampa Bay?

Tampa has lost five straight games following a 30-10 defeat in New Orleans last week. Just about everything that could go wrong did. QB Jameis Winston was pulled due to a shoulder problem and then started a skirmish that eventually led to top WR Mike Evans being suspended for this game. Winston aggravated the sprained AC joint in his right shoulder against New Orleans when he took a hit late in the second quarter. Coach Dirk Koetter said the team made a decision to sit Winston for “at least two weeks” to heal the injury. Ryan Fitzpatrick will start at quarterback on Sunday against the New York Jets, the team he played for in 2015 and 2016. Winston has generated only a 39.4 QBR, down more than 20 points from his 59.5 mark from a year ago. He has missed open receivers on a weekly basis. Are the Bucs a safe bet in NFL Week 10? Evans, meanwhile, was flagged 15 yards for running across the field and drilling Saints CB Marshon Lattimore in the back, then pouncing on Lattimore when he hit the ground. A Saints player then tackled Evans to get him off Lattimore. Everything started when Winston — who was not playing at the time — pushed Lattimore in the back of his helmet while appearing to suggest that he go back to his own sideline. Evans leads the Buccaneers in receptions (40), targets (72) and receiving yards (532), and his four touchdown receptions are tied with Cameron Brate for the team lead this season. So Fitzpatrick will start for the Bucs and the speedy DeSean Jackson would figure to become Tampa Bay’s No. 1 wideout. Last season, Fitzpatrick tossed 17 interceptions. In three appearances this season, the 13th-year vet has thrown for 358 yards, four touchdowns and two picks while completing 62.5% of his passes.
