We went 6-7 in week 8 after going 19-6 the previous 2 weeks, so there is plenty of room for improvement in week 9. Quite a few of our teams didn't show up last weekend, but some of the highlights were calling wins from the Miami Dolphins, Oakland Raiders, and Indianapolis Colts despite all 3 squads being listed as underdogs in Las Vegas. There are a few more upsets on the horizon in week 9 and we hope to get back to our winning ways.
Record against the point spread: 48-32
Kansas City Chiefs at San Diego Chargers -8
The Chargers played terribly last week but should be able to blow out the Chiefs in a much-needed win at home.
Denver Broncos -3.5 at Cincinnati Bengals
Peyton Manning and company are humming along, but they'll lose outright against a Bengals team that can score big points as well.
Arizona Cardinals at Green Bay Packers -11
The Cardinals can't move the ball on offense with John Skelton at quarterback and the Packers will win here by 14 or more thanks to turnovers and field position.
Miami Dolphins -2.5 at Indianapolis Colts
Indianapolis plays well at home but the Dolphins are above average on both sides of the ball and are just now getting the recognition they deserve. Go with Miami to pick up another win.
Baltimore Ravens -3.5 at Cleveland Browns
Cleveland is very overrated, but Baltimore has huge holes on both sides of the ball as well lately. I'll take the Ravens to cover the point spread here because of veterans at key spots.
Buffalo Bills at Houston Texans -10.5
I can't see any way the Bills keep this one close. Their defense is terrible and will give up 30 or more points, while their offense only looks good against poor defenses. Houston by 20+.
Carolina Panthers at Washington Redskins -3
Carolina is a dangerous team when they can move the ball and they will put up big points against what might be the NFL's worst defense. Go with the Panthers in a potential upset.
Detroit Lions -3.5 at Jacksonville Jaguars
The Lions are finally playing decent football although it's nowhere near their potential. That is enough to win by 4 or more against a Jacksonville team that might be the worst offensively in the league.
Chicago Bears -3.5 at Tennessee Titans
The Bears are ripe for an upset, but the Titans simply don't have the pieces to be the team that delivers the defeat. Chicago can run the ball all day here and will win comfortably.
Minnesota Vikings at Seattle Seahawks -5
Seattle is a great team but the Vikings play strong defense. This has all the makings of a low-scoring game decided by a late field goal, and there is plenty of value on Minnesota getting 5 points.
Tampa Bay Buccaneers at Oakland Raiders -1.5
The Buccaneers are showing quite a bit of improvement, but they also still have some holes and I believe the Raiders are playing well enough to exploit them. Oakland wins by 3 or more on Sunday.
Pittsburgh Steelers at New York Giants -3
New York is winning games left and right lately but the Steelers have plenty of talent and simply need this game more. Go with Pittsburgh in the upset.
Dallas Cowboys at Atlanta Falcons -4
I can't believe I'm saying this, but I'm going with the Cowboys. They look great at times and the Falcons simply are not playing strong enough football to remain undefeated. Don't ask me how, but Dallas wins.
Philadelphia Eagles at New Orleans Saints -3
These underachievers have big problems but ultimately the Eagles are the better team on defense and that will be the difference. I think Philadelphia gets the win and turnover machine Michael Vick keeps his job for another day.
