Guest Column- Against The Spread picks Week 10 by William Jones

Upset Special
Arizona (-1) vs. Detroit - How this is nearly a "pick 'em" is beyond me. Detroit coming off 3 straight wins while Arizona has the exact opposite trend losing 3 in a row (including last week after a bye.) Both teams give up a ton of passing yards but the Lions are 17 turnovers better and that is huge underdog margin. Look for this to be a high scoring affair with the Lions coming out ahead. Pick - Detroit +1.

Buffalo (-3) vs. Miami - Again, this is nuts. Buffalo coming off 3 straight wins vs. Miami coming off 8 losses. Despite having a bye week, Miami has found no solutions for any of ails them and with Buffalo coming to town, they won't find any this week. Losman is in a groove and Lee Evans has woken up. Add in the rookie RB Lynch and we'll have a laugher. Pick - Buffalo -3.

Only 2 plays this week. There doesn't seem to be many clear cut opportunities so we'll take what we can get and not try to force the plays.
