Week 10 NFL Upset Picks Primed To Pull Off Road Upsets!
The Minnesota Vikings and Kansas City Chiefs may both be on the road in their respective Week 10 matchups, but both teams look like they’re primed to pull off outright upsets. Now, let’s find out why both teams are offering a bunch of value.
In Depth Analysis On The Week 10 NFL Upset Picks Primed To Pull Off Road Upsets!
Minnesota at Washington
When: 1:00 PM ET, Sunday, November 13, 2016
Where: FedEx Field, Landover, Maryland
NFL Odds: Washington -2.5 / Over/Under: 42
Analysis: Minnesota (5-3 SU, 5-3 ATS) has lost three straight games since opening the season with five straight wins, but the Vikes have also played some stellar defense in not allowing more than 22 points during the three-game stretch.
The Washington Redskins (4-3-1 SU, 5-3 ATS) had a bye last week after playing Cincinnati to a 27-all tie in Week 8, but have been limited to 20 points or less in two of their last four games. While Washington is playing at home and enters this contest with a real sense of urgency as they try to keep up with the Dallas Cowboys in the NFC East, I like the Vikings to get the road upset because of their stingy defense.
Minnesota is 19-5 ATS in its last 24 games and a bankroll-boosting 9-2 ATS in their last 11 road games, Washington has gone an uninspiring 1-4 ATS in their last five meetings against the Vikes. Simply put, I like Minnesota to get the road upset and ATS cover.
Pick: Minnesota +2.5 Points
Kansas City at Carolina
When: Sunday, November 13, 2016 at 1:00 PM ET
Where: Bank of America Stadium
NFL Odds: Carolina Panthers -3 / Over/Under: 44
Analysis: Alex Smith and the Kansas City Chiefs (6-2 SU, 3-5 ATS) have won four straight games while Cam Newton and the Carolina Panthers (3-5 SU, 2-5-1 ATS) have won two straight. While Carolina is playing at home and enters this Week 10 inter-conference clash with some legitimate desperation, I like Kansas City to get the ATS cover – by beating the Panthers outright.
The Chiefs have the better defense in this contest and should be able to force Newton into at least one costly turnover while getting their usual steady performance out of Smith. Kansas City is 7-3 ATS in their last 10 road games while Carolina has gone 1-4-1 ATS and 2-4 SU in their last six games. More importantly, Carolina just can’t find any consistency while Kansas City is the definition of consistency. The Chiefs get the outright win to cover the spread.
Pick: Kansas City +3 Points
