Week 9 of 2012 NFL regular season went very much as expected, with almost every favorites picking up a win. Underdogs went just 4-10. Week 10 might not end the same way, as there are five road favorites.
The visiting team is favored in the first game of the week. The Colts are giving the Jaguars three points on Thursday Night Football. It’s the first time that the two division rivals are facing each other this year.
The other primetime games could be two of the more interesting matchups of the week, but for very different reasons.
The Sunday Night Football game features the smallest point spread on the schedule. The Texans are getting just one point, as they visit the Bears. Both teams are in line to get a bye in the playoffs, and enter the game at 7-1.
Monday Night Football could feature the biggest blowout on the slate of games. The Chiefs are getting 12.5 points, as they visit the Steelers. Kansas City still has yet to hold a lead in regulation. With five losses by more than one score, and just one win on the year, the Chiefs might be the worst team in the league.
Peyton Manning and the Broncos are road favorites, once again. Denver is giving Carolina four points, with both teams coming off victories.
Six divisional matchups are on the schedule. The Eagles and Cowboys are set to face off in a matchup that could, essentially, end one club’s season. Both NFC East teams are 3-5.
Oddsmakers continue to show little faith in the Falcons. Even though Atlanta is the only remaining undefeated team, they are just 2.5-point favorites in New Orleans.
The Browns, Packers, Redskins and Cardinals are off.
