Week 9 makes up for last week’s lackluster slate with a playoff caliber stable of games under the lights for all your NFL betting needs. Up first we have the Battle of the Bay as the Oakland Raiders make the trip across the Bay Bridge to face off against the San Francisco 49ers. You want to see how nuts the books have gotten on Jimmy Garoppolo this offseason? The NFL odds opened with the 49ers as a four-point favorite.
Sunday Night gives us a game we’d all have loved to see on a Sunday in February about 11 years ago when the Green Bay Packers travel to Gillette to take on the New England Patriots. When the NFL odds were originally released, the Patriots were at -6 if you can believe it.
Monday Night Football gets back on track with two of the best offensive lines in the league shoving people around under the lights. The Tennessee Titans face off against the Dallas Cowboys at Jerry’s World. The Cowboys opened at -3.5.
NFL Week 9 Betting Odds
Thursday Night Football Odds (Nov. 1)
Oakland Raiders at San Francisco 49ers
Kickoff: 8:20 p.m. EST
Broadcast: FOX, NFL Network, Amazon Prime
Opening Line: 49ers -3.5, 4.75
This is the kind of game Thursday-nighters should always try to be. Good matchups of equally talented (or close) teams we don’t see play very often. In fact, unless these teams make the Super Bowl, they won’t see each other for another four seasons.
If the 49ers have come out the gate strong in the first half of the season, this should be a rocking crowd and both these teams should be in the mix for a postseason bid. For Oakland, they have a legitimate shot at an AFC West title if they just play up to their capability. San Francisco is probably looking at battling for a Wild Card berth and that’ll take 10 wins in the NFC.
If I was picking this game today, I’d go Raiders all the way and by the time the opening whistle blows, I wouldn’t be surprised to see this line creep down to a Niners -1 or a pick em.
