NFL Week 9 Betting Lines
This is the halfway point of the NFL season, so we will have a pretty good idea of who is a contender and who is a pretender coming into Week 9. The seasons are changing so we could see cold weather make a major impact for the first time, especially with home games in places like Kansas City, Buffalo, and New York. Some old rivalries will give us plenty of excitement too as Dallas hosts Pittsburgh and Baltimore faces off against Indianapolis.
NFL Week 9 Schedule & Lines
BYE WEEK: Cincinnati Bengals, Cleveland Browns, Los Angeles Rams, Philadelphia Eagles
The week will kick off with a rematch of last year’s NFC Championship Game. San Francisco smashed Green Bay in January to get to the Super Bowl, taking a 27-0 lead into halftime and cruising from there. Jimmy Garoppolo only threw the ball eight times in the game, while the unheralded Raheem Mostert had a record-breaking day by running for 220 yards and four touchdowns against this Packers’ defense. Aaron Rodgers will have revenge on the mind, but he had a tough time beating this defense until garbage time last season.
There will be a rematch of Super Bowl XXXIII too when Atlanta hosts Denver. The Falcons and Broncos have both had their ups and downs over the last two decades, and John Elway is sure to have some nostalgia as leading Denver to the Super Bowl was his last act as a player.
The Baltimore Colts’ midnight flight to Indianapolis in 1984 has always provided a tense backdrop for whenever these two teams meet. Baltimore was despondent when its team left with no warning, and long-time residents of this city consider the Colts their most hated rival. The Ravens will likely be favored in the Hoosier State with Lamar Jackson and a dominant run game leading the way, but Philip Rivers and the Colts won’t be an easy team to knock off.
Pittsburgh and Dallas were the first teams to meet in the Super Bowl on both two and three separate occasions. The Steelers knocked off the Cowboys both times in the 1970s as Jackie Smith was infamously the ‘sickest man in America’ due to his drop in Super Bowl XIII, but Dallas knocked off Pittsburgh in Super Bowl XXX thanks to two errant passes from Neil O’Donnell. These teams have arguably the two biggest fanbases in the NFL, so there will be a ton of eyes on this game no matter how bad either team is through the first half of the season.
Tom Brady and Drew Brees will meet for the second time this season when New Orleans heads to Tampa Bay for Sunday Night Football in Week 9. The Buccaneers and Saints are expected to compete all year for the NFC South title, and we have seen more NFL futures action on Tampa Bay than any team in quite some time. The Super Bowl odds on the Buccaneers have fallen significantly since March.
Since taking over the Patriots, Bill Belichick has dominated the AFC East and the New York Jets. New England is 31-11 against Gang Green, and the Jets’ only big win in that stretch was in the 2010 AFC Playoffs when Mark Sanchez led the team past the Pats and on to the AFC Championship Game. The Patriots are 16-2 against the Jets since that loss, and both of New York’s victories came in overtime.
