2019 NFL Week 9 Betting
We turn towards the home stretch of the 2019 NFL regular season as every team has reached the midway point by Week 9. Division races and conference playoff battles heat up while other clubs will have their sights set on the draft and next season.
Most teams prefer having their bye week in the middle part of the season and four teams get their wish with the Falcons, Bengals, Rams, and Saints all taking the week off, leaving us a 14-game slate. Not to worry, though, the schedule is loaded with mouth-watering matchups that will keep the betting public interested.
The betting week gets underway on Halloween night with one of four divisional matchups on the weekly docket. It’s a scary proposition for NFC West rivals San Francisco and Arizona, who face each other twice in three weeks starting on Thursday night. The Cardinals have had the better of the series recently winning eight straight games and they haven’t lost to the Niners in the desert since the 2013 season.
Sunday’s schedule gets an early start with the last of four games this season overseas. The Jaguars will play for the seventh straight year at Wembley Stadium where they’ve split the first six games. London has become a home away from home for the Jags, who extended an agreement with the NFL to play a game there through the 2020 season. The Houston Texans make the trip across the pond for the first time for this critical AFC South showdown.
Former Dolphins coach Adam Gase makes his return to Miami with his New York Jets for an AFC East tilt. Gase spent three seasons in South Beach leading the Fins to a playoff berth in his first season. He was unable to replicate the early success and was relieved of his duties following a 7-9 campaign in 2018. His tenure with the Dolphins ended with a 23-25 regular-season record.
There are a number of other intriguing matchups on Sunday. The Tampa Bay Buccaneers and Seattle Seahawks will forever be linked as expansion teams that together joined the NFL for the 1976 season. The first-ever win in Seahawks history occurred during the inaugural season, 13-10, over the Bucs. Tampa has made the series respectable by winning four of the last five meetings, including a 14-5 home win in the last meeting in 2016.
Cody Parkey’s last field goal attempt for the Chicago Bears was a miss in last season’s playoffs that gave Philadelphia the upset road win. The Bears have been cursed at the position since they released Robbie Gould a few years ago. They’ll trot a new leg onto the turf in Philly with a chance to avenge that defeat.
It’s been a half-century since the Kansas City Chiefs played in a Super Bowl, which is ironic since their founder actually came up with the name of the biggest sporting spectacle on the planet. KC won Super Bowl IV, the last championship game before the AFL-NFL merger, beating the Minnesota Vikings. The teams meet on Sunday for the first time since the 2015 season and just the 13th time overall. KC hasn’t lost at home to the Vikings since 1974, but they’ve played just four times.
There is a showdown between two of the best quarterbacks in the game in the late Sunday window when Aaron Rodgers takes his Packers to face Philip Rivers and the Chargers. The two have gone head-to-head twice with Rodgers coming out on top both times. The Packers are one of two teams Rivers has yet to beat as a starting quarterback and this could be his last chance.
