We ended up at 7-7 with our week eight NFL predictions. We'll hope for better success in week nine. We correctly predicted the New Orleans Saints and the Cincinnati Bengals would win outright as underdogs against the Green Bay Packers and the Baltimore Ravens, respectively. However, we whiffed in thinking the Chicago Bears and St. Louis Rams would keep it close against their respective opponents. After a few weeks of hovering around .500 with our predictions, we think that week nine will be the breakthrough we've been waiting for.
NFL Record Year-to-Date: 65-49-1
New Orleans Saints -2.5 at Carolina Panthers
Carolina's defense isn't nearly as good as last year, but the Saints don't play well on the road and Jimmy Graham isn't at 100%. Take the Panthers to win while scoring around 30.
San Diego Chargers at Miami Dolphins -2.5
Miami keeps winning us money and we aren't moving away from them now against a Chargers squad that's struggled recently. The Dolphins are for real!
Jacksonville Jaguars at Cincinnati Bengals -11
The Jaguars' defense seems improved, but I don't trust their offense on the road. Cincinnati wins by at least 20, even if A.J. Green sits out another week.
Tampa Bay Buccaneers at Cleveland Browns -6.5
The Buccaneers might be the worst team in the NFL and I can't see them hanging in here. Tampa Bay will crowd the line and dare Brian Hoyer to throw, but they don't have the secondary to make it work. Browns by 11.
Washington Redskins at Minnesota Vikings -2.5
Did Las Vegas odds makers forget Minnesota is a terrible team and Washington has Robert Griffin III coming back? This line is bizarre, and the Redskins should be able to win outright.
Philadelphia Eagles -2 at Houston Texans
This matchup is a tossup, and the hardest of week nine to predict. Ultimately, I think Houston's defense is a bit overrated, and Philadelphia has the much stronger offense. Take the Eagles to win by three.
New York Jets at Kansas City Chiefs -10.5
No team in the NFL has cost us more money than the Jets have this season, but we haven't learned our lesson. New York still has a top 10 NFL defense, and should be more productive on offense with Michael Vick under center. Take the Jets, or just burn your money. Up to you. Eventually they have to cover the odds, right?
Arizona Cardinals at Dallas Cowboys -3.5
These squads are both a bit overrated. The Cardinals don't play well on the road, don't have a great defense because of injuries, and are limited at times offensively. I think Dallas wins by double digits.
St. Louis Rams at San Francisco 49ers -10
The Rams have been hit harder than anyone in terms of key injuries, but the 49ers aren't far behind. San Francisco is coming off a bye week and getting some guys healthy, so I'll call for them to cover the odds against a St. Louis squad with barely any healthy bodies.
Denver Broncos -3 at New England Patriots
Tom Brady and the Patriots are playing great recently but it's easy to forget their defense isn't anything special. Denver has a legitimate defense and the better offense. Peyton Manning and his boys by double digits.
Oakland Raiders at Seattle Seahawks -15
Seattle wins 34-3. Next.
Baltimore Ravens at Pittsburgh Steelers pk
The Steelers and Ravens both have strong offenses, but their defenses are iffy. Pittsburgh is worse off on the defensive side of the ball, so take Baltimore to get the road win.
Indianapolis Colts -3.5 at New York Giants
The Colts were exposed like we predicted last week, and might be in for another tough game. Indianapolis' defense is below average and they are going up against a strong defense. Look for Eli Manning to lead his team to an upset win.
