Detroit Lions vs Chicago Bears Odds


The playoffs could be on the line for the Chicago Bears as they host the Detroit Lions on the NFL odds menu for Week 10.

Baltimore Ravens vs Seattle Seahawks Odds


Baltimore falls into a classic letdown spot here on the road in Week 10 odds, making the Seatle Seahawks a possible solid bet at home.

As big chalk, the Ravens are just 1-6 ATS in their past 7 games as a fave of 8+ points. That includes a weak Monday Night effort where they lost in Jacksonville this season.
