Here are some NFL bets that jump out in Week 10 on DraftKings Sportsbook.
Murray’s been a machine running the ball so far this season, not only making the most out of his scrambles, but also getting a heavy dose of runs calling his number. Kyler’s averaging 68 rushing yards and a rushing touchdown per game this season, and a cushy Buffalo defense isn’t a matchup that should prevent him from continuing to run wild. The Bills have given up some big rushing games to QBs this season, and not all of them would even be considered mobile guys. Murray’s coming off a season-high 106 rushing yards on 11 carries against Miami. He’s run for 67 or more yards in three-straight games, and has at least 67 yards in six of his eight games this season. This doesn’t feel like the game Kyler slows down, if he ever does.
The Seahawks are on pace to have one of the worst defenses in NFL history. But Russell Wilson and the offense have still found ways to put up enough points to win games. Seattle is a tempting dog here, but the points are the safer play. The Seahawks are the highest-scoring team in the NFL at 34.2 points per game, but rank 30th in points allowed at 30.4 — an insane total of 64.6 points per game. The Rams are on the opposite end of the spectrum, but Seattle has to dictate the pace of the game — it hasn’t been in a single grinder all season. The Rams won’t be shy to attack the Seahawks through the air, either, as Jared Goff has thrown over 60 times in a game this season, and has the WRs to cause matchup problems. Seattle has gone over 54.5 points in six of its eight games in 2020, with the two unders finishing 54 points against Miami and 53 points against Minnesota. Not overthinking this one.
Despite sneaking out a 30-27 win over the Jets on Monday night, the Patriots showed that they are completely cooked this season. The Pats have only put up points when the matchup dictates this season, and they’ve had some awful showings in the other games. I don’t think Cam Newton and the worst group of WRs in the NFL stand much of a chance of putting up points against Baltimore’s top ranked defense — allowing just 17.8 points per game. Meanwhile, we saw the likes of Joe Flacco and Breshad Perriman absolutely torch New England’s defense, which is about as embarrassing as it gets. Will the Patriots clean it up a bit? Perhaps, but not enough to keep this game within a touchdown. The Ravens have always played the Patriots tough, and dominated the Patriots after they got out to an 8-0 start last season, winning 37-20 in Baltimore. I would be surprised if the Pats could keep it that close this time around.
