NFL teams may win more games coming off a bye week, but the same can't be said about hometeam performances against the spread when it comes to sports gambling. 


Surprisingly, NFL home teams, in general, have performed well under ATS expectations as a whole since 2010, and it'd be wise to keep that in mind as we start delving into all the NFL Week 10 opening betting lines, spreads and totals.

Week 10 features quite a laundry list of teams coming off Week 9 byes: the Cincinnati Bengals, Indianapolis Colts, New York Giants, Philadelphia Eagles, Arizona Cardinals and Jacksonville Jaguars. 

Among these six teams on a bye last week, three of them are playing at home in Week 10. The Colts are minus-3-point favorites hosting the Jaguars. The Bengals are plus-5.5-point underdogs against the Saints in Cincinnati. The Eagles are plus-7-point favorites in Philadelphia against the Dallas Cowboys. All odds via FanDuel Sportsbook


The disparity between home team records following a bye and ATS records following a bye since 2010 are certainly glaring, but the Bengals-Saints game is one that should catch your eye after Tuesday's injury report out of New Orleans included all five starting offensive linemen.
