TPL Picks: Week 10 + Spread Bets

Welcome to an upsettingly brief Picks piece. Sometimes real life commitments get in the way of talking football, even for us. So there's no Game of the Week this time around, but rest assured that we're very excited to watch Carolina's fantastic front 7 go against the 49ers O-Line, which still holds the title of best line in football.

Elsewhere there are NFC North honours up for grabs as the 5-3 Lions travel to the 5-3 Maybe-Cutlerless Bears. As well as Josh McCown has played since stepping in there's no doubt that a healthy Jay Cutler is a better option, it's just whether he's fully recovered from his groin injury or not.

We also have our No. 1 team, Denver, back in action this week on the road in San Diego. It's a good slate of games, and you can see our picks, as well as Toby's improving spread picks, after the jump!


TD's Spread Picks (Last week: 2-1, Overall: 8-15):

I'm clawing my way back toward respectability!

Seattle (-4) over Atlanta

The Falcons are completely banged up in their passing game. There's a real chance that Seahawks would be best served by putting Richard Sherman on Tony Gonzalez rather than Harry Douglas or a banged up Roddy White. The Seahawks are vulnerable to teams with a good ground game and good pass rush, the Falcons have neither of these.

Oakland (+7) over New York

The Raiders aren't as bad as they played against the Eagles, and importantly the Giants don't have it in them to be that good on offense. It looks like Terrell Pryor will play, so I feel good about this one.

Titans (-13) over Jacksonville

Even for the Titans, you can't make this line high enough. No Blackmon means even fewer options for a struggling offense.
