– With their victory over the Rams on Sunday, the Arizona Cardinals (8-1) became the first team to clinch a season win total, going over their total.
– Yesterday we posted an article in which we recalculated our NFL win total projections based on the results to date.

– Favorites went 9-4 ATS in Week 10 moving their season record to 75-68. Home teams went 7-5 ATS in week 10 and are now 70-70 ATS on the year. It was also a terrible week for contrarian betting with teams receiving less than 50% of spread bets posting a 3-10 ATS record.
– The over went 7-6 in Week 10 and is now 78-68 on the year. Also noteworthy is that no over has received less than 40% of public bets all season.
– Each week former Caesars oddsmaker Todd Fuhrman tweets out the teams being pounded by sharp money and the teams being hammered by the less-informed public. This week the Pros went 1-4 ATS while the Joes went 2-1 ATS.
