Week 9 NFL Picks

Another week in the NFL and another batch of crazy games on the slate.  Last week there were 8 games with lines of 3 points or less and now we are looking at 7 home underdogs.

After going .500 and then having a winning weekend, it would seem things are back on track around here.

Last Week: 7-6
Season: 53-60-4

Tampa Bay at Atlanta (-8.5) – Falcons

Chicago at Buffalo (+3) – Bills

New England at Cleveland (+5) – Patriots

NY Jets at Detroit (+4.5) – Jets

Arizona at Minnesota (-8) – Vikings

New Orleans at Carolina (+7) – Saints

Miami at Baltimore (-5) – Ravens

San Diego at Houston (+3) – Texans

NY Giants at Seattle (+7) – Seahawks

Kansas City at Oakland (-1) – Chiefs

Indianapolis at Philadelphia (-3) – Colts

Dallas at Green Bay (-7.5) – Packers

Pittsburgh at Cincinnati (+5) – Steelers

This really is a crazy week.  Not only are there 7 home dogs, but no double digit spreads on the board.  I’ve decided to take just two of those underdogs.

Good luck figuring out just what the Chicago Bears have going on and the Bills have shown the last two weeks that they are dying to get their first victory.  Buffalo returns home and I have to believe they will finally get over the hump while the Bears will continue to confuse, this time coming off their bye week.

Speaking of confusing, the Chargers beat a good Titans team last week but lost 4 of 5 before that and look to be without Antonio Gates.  Not to mention that San Diego has yet to win a game on the road, yet here they are favored against a pretty good Texans squad.

The Chiefs-Raiders game comes down to one simple thing for me: Kansas City has the better running game.  It’s close, though, and that’s what makes what is basically a PK game an easy choice for me.
