NFL picks and score predictions for Week 10 as the 2021 season keeps rolling.

Believe it or not, we’re officially past the midway point of the 2021 NFL season. Luckily, there are still another nine weeks of action left on the docket, and plenty more excitement, frustration, and hair-pulling is guaranteed to come with them.

As usual, we’ve got you covered with the Week 10 edition of NFL picks and score predictions. Just as in years passed, I’ll never claim to know what the future holds. As it turns out, odds are high at least a few of my picks will be completely wrong. I will, however, make my selections based on research, experience, and careful consideration.

After a tough Week 8, I bounced back with my Week 9 effort. When all games were finally in the books, my Week 9 NFL picks had culminated in a 10-4 record. That moves my overall record on the year to 92-44. I won’t go as far as bragging, but that’s certainly a solid showing through the first half of the season.

Just remember that making picks is not a science. Plenty of research goes into it, but there’s no crystal ball — craziness occurs every Sunday. Then again, isn’t that part of the fun of it all?

Now that we’ve gotten all of that out of the way, here are my NFL picks and score predictions for Week 10. Just keep in mind that I assume no responsibility if you choose to place wagers based on my picks — that’s your decision, not mine.

Baltimore Ravens (6-2) at Miami Dolphins (2-7)

Thursday, November 11, 8:20PM ET

Considering the way things are going this season, I’ll probably regret siding with the Baltimore Ravens in this one. However, I can’t in good conscience roll with the Miami Dolphins considering how inept they’ve been on both sides of the ball this year.

It’s unclear at this point if Tua Tagovailoa will be back in the mix, which doesn’t help the Dolphins’ chances. Their young quarterback has been erratic at times this season, but certainly gives their offense a slight boost on Sundays. Against a tough Baltimore defense, a backup quarterback isn’t likely to enjoy too much success.

Meanwhile, the Ravens should have their way against the Miami defense. Lamar Jackson is enjoying another outstanding season so far, and his wide array of weapons continues to step up when called upon. Especially with players like Rashod Bateman and Marquise Brown answering the call, the Ravens could rack up some big yards in Week 10.

The Dolphins don’t get completely blown out, but I don’t think they ever threaten much in this one. Baltimore gets the early lead and never looks back, continuing to assert themselves as one of the beat squads in the AFC.

Prediction: Ravens win 35-17 | Spread: Ravens (-7.5)
