Week 10 NFL picks: Getting through the 49ers bye week

New, comments

We're back with Week 10 NFL picks for our Yahoo! pick 'em contest. I've also included my pick against the spread for Thursday Night Football between the Bills and Jets.

Welcome back for another round of picks! Week 10 of Thursday Night Football kicks off later tonight, with the New York Jets hosting the Buffalo Bills. This game marks Rex Ryan's return to the Meadowlands, which should make for fun times. The Jets will send out Ryan Fitzpatrick to start, but he is having surgery on the thumb of his non-throwing hand the next day. It will be interesting to see if that impacts the center-QB exchange.

I'll be posting my full picks against the spread on Saturday, but for today, I have posted my straight up picks down below, as well as my ATS pick for TNF. You can view the NN pick 'em contest results over here. I put together a 7-6 Week 9, which brings me to 84-48 for the season.

The 49ers are on bye this week, sitting at 3-6 SU and 4-5 ATS. After the bye, they travel to face the Seattle Seahawks. In mid-October, the look-ahead line had the Seahawks as 13-point favorites. Following the 49ers win over the Falcons, the look-ahead line has the Seahawks as 11- or 11.5-point favorites, depending on your sportsbook of choice. The Seahawks host the Arizona Cardinals this weekend on Sunday Night Football. Win or lose, they likely remain double-digit favorites over the 49ers next week.

On Thursday, the Jets host the Bills as a 2.5-point favorite. The Bills are 4-4 ATS this season, while the Jets are 4-3-1. The Bills are 4-1 ATS in the last five games between these two teams. The Bills snapped a two-game ATS losing streak with their win over Miami last week, while the Jets are 0-2-1 in their last three games. The home team is 5-1 ATS in the last six games. I am going with the Jets at this point. I'm sure Rex Ryan will have his team motivated for this game, but I do wonder if his personality is a bit too much, and the team is a little over-amped. I'm taking the Jets at -2.5.
