The Grueling Truth - Where Legends Speak / 2017 NFL Beating the Spread Week 9: Previews and Predictions

2017 NFL Beating the Spread Week 9: Previews and Predictions

NFL Week 9 Picks
Publish Date: 11/04/2017
Fact checked by: Simon Briffa


Denver Broncos at Philadelphia Eagles(-7.5)

It is never a good thing to be missing a starting tackle as you get ready to face a fierce pass rush like the Broncos. What the Eagles do have is a defense that will shut down the Broncos offense and in the end Carson Wentz will make enough plays to get it done.

Prediction: Eagles 24ย  Broncos 13

Los Angeles Rams(-3.5) at New York Giants

The Rams may well be the biggest surprise of the season and the Giants maybe the biggest disappointment.

Prediction: Rams 27ย  Giants 17

Tampa Bay Buccaneers at New Orleans Saints(-6.5)

The Bucs were supposed to be a contender this year and so far they have been far from it. The Saints surprise has been on the defensive side of the ball where they have been very good over the last few weeks.

Prediction: Saints 31ย  Buccaneers 23

Cincinnati Bengals at Jacksonville Jaguars(-5.5)

The Jaguars defensive front will maul the Bengals all day long. The Bengals play uninspired football and they are poorly coached. Put that all together and you have all the ingredients for a butt kicking.

Prediction: Jaguars 34ย  Bengals 13

Atlanta Falcons(-2.5) at Carolina Panthers

Both of these teams have been hot and cold all year long and that makes this a tough game to predict.

Prediction: Falcons 27ย  Panthers 24

Indianapolis Colts at Houston Texans(-6.5)

Two snake-bitten teams square off in a game that is hard to predict. I will go with Bill O’Brien over Chuck Pagano.

Prediction: Texans 17ย  Colts 10

Baltimore Ravens at Tennessee Titans(-3.5)

It looks like Flacco will play. With that being said, neither one of these teams has been impressive this year. I will take the Titans to win and the Ravens to cover.

Prediction: Titans 17ย  Ravens 16

Arizona Cardinals(-2.5) at San Francisco 49ers

Adrian Peterson will be the difference in this game.

Prediction: Cardinals 24ย  49ers 17

Washington Redskins at Seattle Seahawks(-7)

I look for the Seahawks to cover in an entertaining game to watch.

Prediction: Seahawks 34ย  Redskins 24

Kansas City Chiefs at Dallas Cowboys(-2.5)

Great matchup. With Zeke in the backfield you have to go with the Cowboys.

Prediction: Cowboys 27ย  Chiefs 20

Oakland Raiders(-3) at Miami Dolphins

Both teams are a mess, but the Raiders are a more talented mess.

Prediction: Raiders 31ย  Dolphins 14

Detroit Lions(-2) at Green bay Packers

The Lions have to win this game and they will.

Prediction: Lions 31ย  Packers 16
