NFL Week 9 Betting Lines
Last year at this time, it was an open topic of speculation as to whether or not the New York Jets would tank their season to get Trevor Lawrence. But the Jets being the Jets, they couldn’t even pull that off as they won two of their final three games that followed an 0-13 start. But things may turn out well anyway. Zach Wilson burst onto the scene as the second most coveted quarterback out of college football behind only Lawrence. Wilson and the Jets will go up against the Indianapolis Colts to get Week 9 started in a Thursday night matchup. The Colts also have a new quarterback in Philadelphia Eagles refugee Carson Wentz. Wentz has gone from being the favorite whipping boy in the City of Brotherly Love to a potential savior of the Colts offense. By the time this Week 9 game takes place, we’ll know if the haters in Philadelphia were justified or if Wentz just needed a new good home.
BYE WEEK: Detroit, Seattle, Tampa Bay, Washington
It will be a potentially interesting day from Charlotte, North Carolina, where the Carolina Panthers will host the New England Patriots and their former NFL Most Valuable Player quarterback Cam Newton. The question is if Newton will even play in the game or if number one draft pick Mac Jones will be holding down the job at that point. We’ll also learn if new Carolina QB Sam Darnold has found career salvation with the Panthers after a bad start to his career as a member of the New York Jets.
A potential Super Bowl preview will occur from Arrowhead Stadium in Kansas City, where the Chiefs will host the Green Bay Packers. Two of the best quarterbacks in football will go at it with Aaron Rodgers of the Pack and Patrick Mahomes of the Chiefs. A lot of gamblers will be thinking over the total for this one,
Possibly the most underrated game of the day comes from San Francisco, where the 49ers will host the Arizona Cardinals. Arizona is one of the potentially dangerous dark horses in the NFC with a vastly improved defense. Of course, the 49ers have a quarterback quandary to settle between rookie first round draft pick Trey Lance and Super Bowl QB Jimmy Garoppolo.
The Los Angeles Rams will host the Tennessee Titans on NBC Sunday Night Football. The Rams and head coach Sean McVay gambled everything on a trade that sent Jared Goff to the Detroit Lions for veteran Matthew Stafford. By the time this game takes place, we’ll have a good idea if Stafford was the answer or if the Rams are paying the price for a fit of pique by McVay, who believed Goff didn’t man up enough and play hurt. Tennessee and quarterback Ryan Tannehill took a step back last year, and the Titans are again facing the doubts of gamblers.
Images of bruising football will be on the minds of many when the Pittsburgh Steelers host the Chicago Bears on ESPN Monday Night Football. Pittsburgh’s top draft pick, running back Najee Harris out of Alabama, will have a solid body of work for fans and gamblers to judge him on at this point. Bears fans are begging that Justin Fields take over at quarterback now, but certainly by the time this game takes place.
