The Vegas bookmakers seem to have declared Week 10 a home team weekend, as home teams this week are favored in 11 of the 14 games. That's not going to sit well with Cowboys fans, as Dallas is traveling to Tampa Bay this weekend and is the underdog there.

But Week 10 got off to a highly auspicious start for Cowboys fans when the New York Jets, who had been favored by -2.5 points over the visiting Bills, were the first home team favorite to lose their game. Might more such upsets be in the works this weekend?

The consensus vote from our Pick 256 participants only has two such upsets planned for this weekend, a road win by Dallas in Tampa and a road win by Arizona in Seattle.

TNF Early Games Late Games SNF MNF
Game BUF @ NYJ DET @ GB DAL @ TB CAR @ TEN CHI @ STL NO @ WAS MIA @ PHI CLE @ PIT JAC @ BAL MIN @ OAK KC @ DEN NE @ NYG ARI @ SEA HOU @ CIN
Favorite NYJ: 69% GB: 99% DAL: 90% CAR: 93% STL: 92% NO: 83% PHI: 57% PIT: 85% BAL: 77% OAK: 67% DEN: 94% NE: 95% ARI: 58% CIN: 99%

If you had to pick additional home favorites for an upset this weekend, which team would that be?

I'm assuming everybody wants Philly to lose to Miami. But wouldn't it be nice to see Green Bay extend its losing streak to three against the lowly Lions? How about Jay Cutler showing up Jeff Fisher? Someone else?
