NFL Week 10 point spread: Atlanta at Carolina, Vikings vs. Packers

The point spread and odds on the Week 10 NFL games Atlanta Falcons vs. Carolina Panthers and Minnesota Vikings vs. Green Bay Packers.

NFL Week 10 point spread: Atlanta at Carolina, Vikings vs. Packers We start this week's football betting odds and point spread preview with the game between the Atlanta Falcons (2-6) and the Carolina Panthers (4-4). The Falcons finally got theoir break against the 49ers last week, but for Week 10 at Bookmaker the Falcons are listed underdog with odds +180 and the Panthers are favorite with betting odds -210. The point spread on the Atlanta Falcons vs. Carolina Panthers game is sitting at -4 points chalk the Panthers with total at 35.5 points. Keep in mind that Atlanta is 4-1 against the spread in its last 5 games and Carolina is 0-5 ATS in its last 5 games at home.

 The Panthers will have an opportunity to tie for the first spot in the NFC South if they beat the Falcons this weekend and that sounds as very good motivation for the team to give 100% on the field. Quarterback problems are the Achilles heel of the Panthers - David Carr missed Wednesday practice after concussion against the Titans last week, Vinny Testaverde returned to practice, but coach John Fox has not named Testaverde a starter yet and rookie QB Matt Moore may get his first play against the Falcons on Sunday. It sounds like a good decision, the next couple of games will match the Panthers with Green Bay and the Saints and you would want to have healthy veteran quarterbacks on the field. The Falcons desperately need Ws, but RB Warrick Dunn and TE Alge Crumpler had a limited practice n Wednesday and RB Jerious Norwood was a no-show yesterday. Overall, the Panthers should be able to beat the Falcons, although with a rookie quarterback it's questionable if they will cover the -4 point spread.

 Now we go to Wisconsin for the Week 10 football game between the Minnesota Vikings (3-5) and the Green Bay Packers (7-1). At Bookmaker the Packers are favorite with odds -250 and the Vikings will be underdog with betting odds +210. The point spread on the Minnesota Vikings vs. Green Bay Packers game is posted at -6 points chalk the Packers with total listed at 40 points. Minnesota is 3-4-2 against the spread in its last 9 games on the road and Green Bay is 7-1-1 ATS in its last 9 games. The total has gone UNDER in 4 of Green Bay's last 6 games when playing Minnesota.

 The Green Bay Packers are sitting atop of the NFC North, but are feeling the heat from the Lions and a win against the Vikings is a must. Packers are on their 3-game winning streak and will shoot for a forth, while the Vikings will try and get fourth win this season, boosted from the 17-35 victory over the Chargers last week. The Packers have the awful habit of losing their home games more often than losing away and will have to rely on their 12th ranked defense (313.6 yards allowed) to hold off the Vikings' record-breaking running back Adrian Peterson. Minnesota quarterbacks Tarvaris Jackson and Kelly Holcomb had limited Wednesday practice, as well ass wide receivers Sidney Rice and Bobby Wade. The list of Green Bay players who had limited yesterday's practice is much longer, WR Ruvell Martin, RB Ryan Grant, LBs Brady Poppinga and Tracy White, DTs Corey Williams and Ryan Pickett, and many more. If the Packers don't get healthy for the Sunday football matchup, the game could go against the bookies.
