Ten Betting Tips: NFL Betting Bits To Watch For Week 10

Week 10 of the 2012 NFL betting campaign is about set to kick off on Thursday night, as all 32 teams continue their conquest to lift the Lombardi Trophy. Today, we take a look at our Top 10 Betting Tips, as we point out some of the most important people, teams, and trends that you’ll be hearing all about as the season continues.

The defense of the San Francisco 49ers defense has something to be happy about right now. This unit is one of the best in the league, and it is holding teams down to just 271.4 yards and 12.9 points per game. There hasn’t been a single touchdown scored against this unit for over 131 minutes of game time, a mark that is clearly the best in the league. Now, the 49ers are laying 11 to the St. Louis Rams this weekend on the NFL odds. The only team laying more? The…

BetOnline.comNew England Patriots. And why not? QB Tom Brady and the New England offense rolled off 580 yards on the Buffalo Bills a month and change ago when these teams met for the first time this year, and they’re liable to do it again. Remember that in that game, both RB Brandon Bolden and RB Stevan Ridley had over 100 yards, and the offense had seven touchdowns, four of which came on the ground. There’s just no stopping this team right now offensively, but the next question is whether there is any team out there that can stop the…

Atlanta Falcons. The Falcons are 8-0 this year, and they are running away from the rest of the field in the NFC South. They’re still not believed to be the best team in football, but they definitely have an offense that can be lethal. QB Matt Ryan is likely to throw for at least three touchdowns in this one this week against the New Orleans Saints, and when that happens, the Falcons, who are 2.5 point favorites this week, have never lost. About the only reason that Matty Ice wouldn’t be rolling to a ninth straight win in that situation would be if…

Drew Brees went off. Brees clearly has the ability to do that, as he is on his way to posting a third 5,000 yard passing campaign in his illustrious career. He didn’t play all that well last week against the Philadelphia Eagles, but the team did show something that it hadn’t all year long: A defense. Defensive Coordinator Steve Spagnuolo really brought the heat to QB Michael Vick, and his team came up with seven sacks. That’s why the man that really has to be salivating right now is…

DeMarcus Ware. Ware has had six straight games with at least a piece of a sack, and he has had three multi-sack games on the campaign. The linebacker from Troy has nine sacks for the campaign, and one more gives him his seventh straight season with double digits worth of sacks. With 108.5 sacks in his career, Ware is now 19th all-time in sacks, and he clearly has at least a few more men waiting in the wings to catch. This week, the Eagles are on deck, and the Cowboys are slender road favorites because of the way that the bettors believe the defensive front is going to manhandle Philly’s lousy offensive line. If Philly has anything else to be happy about, it’s the fact that one of the worst offensive lines in the league last year belonged to the…

Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Now look at the Bucs! Even with G Carl Nicks on the shelf with a toe injury for the rest of the year, RB Doug Martin is tearing opposing defenses apart. This young man has 794 yards, third best in the league, and he has a total of 1,039 yards and eight TDs in just eight games. No rookie has ever flirted with 2,000 total yards before, and this could be something truly special this year for the Bucs and for Martin. Unfortunately for Martin though, QB Andrew Luck is clearly in front of him in the Rookie of the Year race. In front of them both though, is…

Robert Griffin III. RGIII is just a man on a mission at the moment. His team is on bye this week, but the Washington Redskins might be favorites over the Cowboys in Week 11. Griffin has thrown for 1,993 yards and rushed for 540 more, and he has accounted for a total of 14 touchdowns in his first nine games out of the blocks. This sounds like something that a young…

Cam Newton was able to do just a year ago. Newton is still taking a lot of heat for the way that he is playing this year, though he did at least get a win last week against the aforementioned Skins. It’s not like Newton isn’t putting up respectable numbers this year, because he is. There’s no shame in 1,902 passing yards and 347 rushing yards. The Panthers would love to see some more touchdowns hit the board over the course of the year, as he has just nine between his arm and his legs. Things might improve this week though, when an old familiar face comes to town…

John Fox is going to be back, but he is going to be leading the Denver Broncos, not the team that he once led to the Super Bowl, the Panthers. This is the first trip back to Tobacco Road for Fox since leaving Carolina, and he has to be looking forward to the visit. The Broncos are playing great ball right now, and that’s why they are four-point favorites. The truth of the matter though, is that this defense really needs to pick it back up at some point. Ranking 13th in the league in scoring with 21.9 points per game allowed doesn’t cut it, especially for a defense that appears to be just as talented as that of the…

San Francisco 49ers. The problem with both of these teams is that they are playing on the West Coast, thus they really don’t get the same type of attention that they deserve. Don’t be all that shocked if the 49ers take another step in the right direction this weekend by shutting down the Rams and coasting to their seventh ‘W’ of the campaign.
