Chicago (4-3) at Buffalo (2-5)
- When: Sunday, November 4, 2018, 1:00 PM ET
- Where: New Era Field, Orchard Park, New York
- TV: FOX
- NFL Week 9 Odds: TBA
The Bears laid a straight-forward 24-10 smackdown on the Jets on Sunday while the Buffalo Bills had the weekend off, thankfully. Chicago rebounded nicely from their heartbreaking 38-31 Week 6 loss against New England as second-year quarterback Mitchell Trubisky passed for 220 yards with two touchdowns and no interceptions and running back Jordan Howard rushed for 81 yards and one score on 22 carries.
The Bills have lost two straight and three of their last four games while getting held to 13 points or less in each of their last four games. Buffalo can’t pass or run the ball consistently and Chicago has a bunch of motivation. The Bears are averaging 16.2 points per game more than Buffalo this season while also giving up 4.5 fewer points per game defensively. Chicago has gone 6-3 ATS in their last nine games while Buffalo has gone 2-6 SU over their last eight. The Bills have problems everywhere and not much hope of doing anything this season while Chicago has a whole lot to play for. The Bears win this one by double digits to cover the spread as a near, touchdown road favorite I suspect.
Pick: Bears 27 – Bills 14
LA Rams (8-0) at New Orleans (6-1)
- When: Sunday, November 4, 2018, 4:25 PM ET
- Where: Mercedes-Benz Superdome, New Orleans, Louisiana
- TV: FOX
- NFL Week 9 Odds: New Orleans -1 (Total 60)
The Rams remained unbeaten by getting past Green Bay 29-27 on Sunday as Jared Goff threw for 295 yards and three TD passes and Todd Gurley added 114 rushing yards on 25 carries while adding another 81 receiving yards and one touchdown on six catches. New Orleans was even more impressive in their 30-20 road win over Minnesota that I predicted a week ago.
Drew Brees had a modest game with 120 passing yards while going 18 of 23 with one touchdown and one interception. However, the Saints defense was overpowering as cornerback P.J. Williams recorded a 45-yard pick against Kirk Cousins and the Saints got two touchdowns from running back Alvin Kamara. New Orleans got their payback for their crushing ‘Minneapolis Miracle’ loss against the Vikings last postseason that denied them a trip to the conference championship game.
“This one had a little extra special meaning,” Brees said afterward.
PredictionThe first thing you should know is that this contest should be a knock-down drag-out brawl for it all. The Rams are averaging a stellar 33.0 points per game while limiting the opposition to just 19.4 points per contest defensively. Conversely, the Saints are putting up 33.4 points per game and while they are giving up 26.1 points per game this season, they’ve allowed just 20.0 points per game over their last four.
Los Angeles has gone 1-4 ATS in their last five games following an SU win while the Saints have gone 5-0 ATS in their last five games, 19–7 ATS in their last 26 games following a straight up win and a stellar 20-8-1 ATS in their last 29 games following an ATS win. I basically like the Saints to hold it down at home in a flat-out thriller.
Pick: Rams 28 – Saints 31
Green Bay Packers at New England Patriots
- When: Sunday, November 4th, 8:20 p.m. ET
- Where: Gillette Stadium
- TV: NBC
- NFL Week 9 Odds: New England -6.5 (Total TBA)
The Packers put up a helluva’ fight, but they lost a heartbreaker against the Rams 29-27 as Aaron Rodgers passed for 286 yards with one touchdown and no picks and Aaron Jones rushed 12 times for 86 yards and one score. Unfortunately, Green Bay’s defense allowed Jared Goff to toss three TD passes while Todd Gurley added 225 total yards of offense and one score.
New England won in Buffalo 25-6, which means five victories in a row.
PredictionFor this Week 9 matchup, I’m going to get right to the point by saying that New England is the pick for me, simply because of the fact that they are playing at home and Green Bay is pretty awful defensively. Yes, I know New England has been stunning ineffective defensively this season, but the combination of Bill Belichick and Tom Brady lead me to believe that New England is going to win by a touchdown to cover the chalk.
Green Bay is 3-7 ATS in their last 10 games and although they’ve gone 4-1 ATS in their last five against the Patriots, I think their lack of a competent defense is going to cost them big in this one. New England has gone 14-6 ATS in their last 20 games while winning 11 of their last 12 home games straight-up. I like New England in a fairly high-scoring affair.
Pick: Packers 28 – Patriots 35
