NFL Week 9 Picks Against the Spread

2018 New Orleans Saints

NFL week 9 is here. Picking NFL games straight up is hard enough, but picking against the spread is even tougher. Here are the NFL week 9 picks against the spread. (Spreads are from tallysight.com as of Wednesday morning)

Last week: 8-6, Overall: 64-54-1

Thursday Night

Green Bay Packers (-6) at San Francisco 49ers

While the Packers are struggling at the moment, the 49ers have had so many injuries. Now they will be without George Kittle and Jimmy Garoppolo. The Packers should be able to cover on the road.

Pick: Packers

Sunday Afternoon

Seattle Seahawks (-2.5) at Buffalo Bills

The Seahawks have played great football this season, but they are traveling across the country for this one. Buffalo has an offense that can exploit Seattle’s weaknesses on defense. The Bills will at least keep this one very close.

Pick: Bills

Baltimore Ravens (-2.5) at Indianapolis Colts

Indianapolis looks like a team that is going to make the playoffs by running the ball and playing good defense. The Ravens lost to the Steelers by three and did not play well. If they play decently this week, they will cover on the road.

Pick: Ravens

Chicago Bears at Tennessee Titans (-5.5)

Chicago still can’t get their offense going, while Tennessee’s defense has not lived up to expectations. This should be a close, relatively low-scoring game. The Titans may win this one, but the Bears’ defense will keep it close.

Pick: Bears

Detroit Lions at Minnesota Vikings (-4)

The Vikings played well against the Packers last week. They were able to pick up a lot of yards on the ground. Winning one game against a good team is great, but they are still a two-win team that shouldn’t be favored in many games.

Pick: Lions

Carolina Panthers at Kansas City Chiefs (-10.5)

After starting the season off well, the Panthers have slowed down a bit. The Chiefs aren’t familiar with slowing down and should be able to win and cover at home.

Pick: Chiefs

Houston Texans at Jacksonville Jaguars (-7)

Jacksonville could be without Gardner Minshew this week, who has a thumb injury. That means Mike Glennon or Jake Luton will start. This pick should be an easy one.

Pick: Texans

Denver Broncos at Atlanta Falcons (-4)

So far this season, the Broncos have defeated the teams that they are supposed to beat. They have won three of their last four games and should be able to beat a bad Falcons’ team on the road.

Pick: Broncos

New York Giants at Washington Football Team (-3)

Washington gets the advantage of this one being on their home turf, but it is a pick ’em game either way. Washington may win, but the Giants may just be able to keep the game within three points after a good performance against the Bucs on Monday Night Football

Pick: Giants

Sunday Evening

Las Vegas Raiders at Los Angeles Chargers (-1.5)

The Chargers have played well with Justin Herbert under center, but their only two wins on the season have come over the Bengals and Jaguars. Jon Gruden’s squad is over .500 and playing for a spot in the playoffs. They will pull off the upset on the road.

Pick: Raiders

Pittsburgh Steelers (-13.5) at Dallas Cowboys

The Cowboys don’t even know who will be starting at quarterback this week. The Steelers’ defense may score more than the Cowboys offense in this game.

Pick: Steelers

Miami Dolphins at Arizona Cardinals (-4.5)

With Tua Tagovailoa still getting his feet wet, the Dolphins will not be able to keep up with the Cardinals’ offense. Kyler Murray will find room to operate on the ground and through the air.

Pick: Cardinals

Sunday Night

New Orleans Saints at Tampa Bay Buccaneers (-5)

The Saints still look like they haven’t really hit their stride yet. Getting Kwon Alexander helps, but it will take time for him to get acclimated. Tampa Bay will win and cover at home.

Pick: Buccaneers

Monday Night

New England Patriots (-7) at New York Jets 

New England is struggling, but the Jets are still the Jets. Cam Newton should be able to improve this week and help the Patriots get back in the win column.

Pick: Patriots
