With six teams on bye in Week 10, savvy bettors will need to dig a little deeper to find wise investments this upcoming slate of NFL action.
The six-team bye weeks are usually killers for fantasy football players, but an underrated loser in those weeks are gamblers. With only 13 games on the schedule, there are fewer opportunities for bettors to make some smooth wagers in those weeks.
There is still value to be had, however, and FanSided is here to help. Check out our five best bets of the week, including a potential shootout in Tampa Bay.
5. Cardinals-Buccaneers Over 54
Neither one of these teams are any good, but one thing that they do have in common is they love to score points. Tampa Bay is fourth in the league in scoring, averaging 28.8 points per game, while the Cardinals chip in 21.7 per contest.
Neither squad has a good defense either, as each team has been routinely shredded, and both rank in the bottom-four in the league in points allowed per game, with Arizona surrendering 27.9 points per game and the Buccaneers getting gashed for a whopping 31.5 points a contest. The over/under total of 54 seems far too low with these two, so expect a barnburner in Tampa.
