NFL Week 9 odds, picks and predictions
Week 9 kicks off with some great match ups across the league. Lets navigate the schedule and see where we can pick some games we feel comfortable about.
St. Louis @ Minnesota (-1)
Two smash mouth teams built around strong defense and the run game. Should be a low scoring affair and that would hold consistent with trends. The Vikings have hit the under in all but one game this year. The Rams have had five of seven hit the under as well. Im going with the Vikings at home with the UNDER.
Rams 13 Vikings 23
Oakland (+4.5) @ Pittsburgh
The Raiders looked pretty good against the number three defense in the league last week vs. the Jets. I think they carry it into Pittsburgh this week. Although I have this funny feeling they are going to win, it is only my heart talking but I think it will be a close game.
Raiders 31 Steelers 27
Washington @ New England (-14)
The point spread in this game is very risky but I think the Revenge Tour continues for Coach Belichick, Tom Brady and the Patriots. The Redskins are 1-9 in their last ten games after victory. Patriots are 5-0 in November ATS in their last five games.
Redskins 17 Patriots 37
