Week 10 of the regular season saw the Dallas Cowboys extend their winning streak to eight successive victories in the 35-30 win over the Pittsburgh Steelers, while the Kansas City Chiefs, New York Giants and Miami Dolphins also continued their good form with another win apiece.
Elsewhere the Los Angeles Rams beat the New York Jets in a low scoring 9-6 game and the Cleveland Browns lost match ten of ten to the Baltimore Ravens.
The Saints travel to the Panthers, with both sides in desperate need of a win to keep hopes of catching divisional leaders the Falcons.
The Saints were narrowly beaten by the Broncos last weekend, but will take heart from a decent Drew Brees quarterback display as the Saints rushing game was muted by the Broncos defense. The Panthers lost a 17 point lead against the Chiefs last week, as costly errors ended up punishing Carolina. They will need to pick themselves up quickly to avoid another slump. Saints to take it on the points spread.
The Ravens have a tough Texas test, against the most in-form NFL side at the moment, the Dallas Cowboys.
The Ravens made it two wins in a row against a poor Browns team, but had a couple of interceptions in an otherwise easy job. The Cowboys have won eight on the bounce and looked a strong attacking unit in the victory over the Steelers, although the defence must improve, with Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger throwing for over 400 yards. Cowboys is our main NFL bet to win this one comfortably.
Philly Eagles face a difficult task as they travel to face the Seahawks on Sunday evening.
The Eagles pulled off an excellent victory over the usually free-scoring Falcons last time out, as the Philly defence limited the Falcons to just 15 points in one of their best performances.
The Seahawks made it two wins in a row, with a seven point win over the Patriots in a pulsating game, inflicting what is only New England’s second defeat of the season. The Seahawks are looking very useful at the moment and should win this one easily.
