NFL Week 9 Betting Guide: Football Odds, Predictions & Picks

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 -4

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.

Sunday, Nov. 4, Early Games

Chicago Bears at Buffalo Bills
Kickoff: 1 p.m. EST
Broadcast: FOX
Opening Line: Bills -1.5

Kansas City Chiefs at Cleveland Browns
Kickoff: 1 p.m. EST

Sunday, Oct. 4, Late Games

Houston Texans at Denver Broncos
Kickoff: 4:05 p.m. EST
Broadcast: CBS
Opening Line: Pick em

Los Angeles Chargers at Seattle Seahawks
Kickoff: 4:05 p.m. EST
Broadcast: CBS
Opening Line: Pick em

Los Angeles Rams at New Orleans Saints
Kickoff: 4:25 p.m. EST
Broadcast: FOX
Opening Line: Saints -2

America’s Game of the Week steps up to the plate and swings for the fences with two of the best offenses in the league facing off at the Superdome. I’m not sure that Saints -2 will hold up. It looks like a pick em to me, but that might depend on how each team looked the week before.

The offensive star power on both teams could lead to a fantasy point bonanza. Will Brandin Cooks have something a little special for the team that traded him away two years ago? Do they have a defensive back that can run with him?

As it is, if you like the Rams for your NFL betting needs, it’d probably be best to jump on this one early.

Sunday Night Football Odds (Oct. 4)

Green Bay Packers at New England Patriots
Kickoff: 8:20 p.m. EST
Broadcast: NBC
Opening Line: Patriots -6

Back in 2007-08, this was the Super Bowl we all thought we wanted. The Patriots were wrapping up an undefeated regular season and run through the playoffs. On the NFC side, it looked like the only team that could derail their coronation as the greatest team of all time was the Aaron Rodgers-led Packers. Then Eli Manning stepped up did the job himself.

It’s 11 years later and this is a contest that happens all too infrequently. If this is Tom Brady’s final season, and I kind of think it will be, this will be our last chance to watch him and Rodgers square off.

I don’t see this line staying at -6. It’ll be closer to -3.5 by gametime.

Monday Night Football Odds (Oct. 5)

Tennessee Titans at Dallas Cowboys
Kickoff: 8:15 p.m.
Broadcast: ESPN
Opening Line: Cowboys -3.5

There are a handful of terrific games on Week 9’s schedule, but for once MNF might have landed the best one. I’ve stated time and again that I think this Titans offense will put up a ton of points this year under offensive coordinator Matt LaFleur. The last two teams LaFleur coached for did alright in that regard, the 2016 Atlanta Falcons and the 2017 Los Angeles Rams. Marcus Mariota will get actual professional coaching for the first time in his young career.

As for the Cowboys, the Dak Prescott and Zeke Elliott express will be deep in its third season at this point and I’m confident, especially with the extra prep time, this one is going to be a shootout. The line might not move, but look hard at the point totals when they come out.
