WEEK 10 MISMATCH

San Diego Chargers at Tampa Bay Buccaneers (-3, 47)

Philip Rivers’ swagger vs. Bucs' bad pass defense

Philip Rivers has never had an issue with confidence before, wearing that shit-eating grin on the sidelines most Sundays no matter if the Bolts are winning or not. But, the Chargers’ cocky QB did need a little pick-me-up after losing three in a row. That boost came in the form of Kansas City and an 18-for-20 passing day for Rivers last Thursday.

With a bit of swagger back, Rivers takes aim at the Buccaneers’ porous pass defense, which ranks last in the league after allowing 321.1 yards through the air per game. Tampa Bay made Oakland QB Carson Palmer feel like it was 2005 again, watching the aging arm pass for more than 400 yards and four TDs. Palmer did, however, get picked off three times. But c’mon, it’s Carson Palmer.

Jets vs Seattle

Public perception: This is one of only two games with more of the public on the 'dog. It has to do with the fact the Seahawks are heading into their bye -- again, teams are 3-17 ATS in that role -- and the Jets are coming off their bye; teams are 10-6 in that role.

Wiseguys' view: The sharps love to bet the Seahawks at home, but that's usually as an underdog. They're pretty much split on this game.
