Exclusive NFL Week 9 Picks by Scott

Week 9 is upon us in the NFL and that means that by the end of this week we’re going to be over halfway through the regular season. I must admit that there have been some surprises this season and I’m sure we’re in store for more. Check out our NFL picks below and make sure you choose one of our recommended betting sites to place wagers on our picks if you decide to tail us this Sunday.

  • Denver Broncos (2-5) will meet the Oakland Raiders (4-3) in a divisional match-up this weekend. Tebow is expected to start for the Broncos in this game and Palmer will start for the Raiders. Oakland is favoured by -7 right now and I took the Broncos at +7 this weekend. Denver should be up for this rivalry game and they also need to bounce back after getting blown out last weekend. Look for the Broncos to run the ball more and their defence to cause a couple turnovers to keep this game close right down to the wire.
  • Pittsburgh Steelers (6-2) will meet the Baltimore Ravens (5-2) for the 2nd time this season. The Ravens humiliated the Steelers earlier in the season and I think the Steelers will want revenge. The Ravens have looked terrible the past two weeks while the Steelers have been riding a 4-game win streak. Pittsburgh and Baltimore seem to be heading in opposite directions right now and I like the home favourite by -3 points. Steelers should get their revenge in front of their home crowd and I think they’ll be able to cover the -3 point spread.
  • New York Giants (5-2) will travel this weekend to take on the New England Patriots (5-2). I think the Patriots will win the game and bounce back from their recent loss last week, but I don’t think they’ll cover the -9 point spread. I’ll be on the Giants at +9 this weekend. Both teams can score points and the Patriots have a very weak defence. Giants should score enough points to keep this game close and win ATS this weekend.

Part of my sports betting strategy in the NFL is to make sure I find the valuable underdogs every week. I love getting points in the NFL and I usually have more underdogs on my card each week than favourites. There are a couple other games that I’m taking a look at this weekend as well, but I haven’t pulled the trigger. I like the Jets +1 on the road this weekend in Buffalo, as it’s a game that the Jets need in the division right now.

I also like the 49’ers at -3.5 this weekend although I’d rather get -3 in case there is a push. For some reason this game is the most heavily bet on game this weekend and the public is hammering the 49’ers. I normally don’t like going with the public in these types of situations because there is often a letdown on the road favourite. The 49’ers have looked great this season, but I could see them sleepwalking through this game and winning by a FG, which is why I haven’t bet on the game yet.
