Will the loss of superstar defensive end J.J. Watt throw Houston’s 2019 campaign off track? Can Pittsburgh take care of business to reach .500 this coming weekend? Last but not least, can Lamar Jackson and the Baltimore Ravens pull off the huge upset against Tom Brady and the visiting New England Patriots?
Okay NFL betting faithful, with Week 9 quickly-approaching, let’s get down to business by examining three matchups that all look like they’re offering plenty of betting value.
2019 NFL Week 9 Parlay Betting Picks
Minnesota (6-2) at Kansas City (5-3)
- When: Sunday, November 3, 2019 at 1:00 PM ET
- Where: Arrowhead Stadium, Kansas City, Missouri
- NFL Week 9 Odds: Minnesota -2.5 / Total: OFF
Minnesota has won four straight and although they’ve beaten the lowly Giants and Redskins along the way, the Vikings are looking pretty good on both sides of the ball, particularly in recent emphatic wins over Philadelphia and Detroit. Running back Dalvin Cook is having a monster season with 823 rushing yards and nine scores and Minnesota’s defense is playing a stingy brand of football in limiting the opposition to just 16.5 points per game to rank third in points allowed.
Kansas City has lost three of four with their only win during the stretch coming against offensively-inept Denver. While the Chiefs put up a great effort in their 31-24 loss to Green Bay this past weekend, they clearly are not as good as they would be with Patrick Mahomes under center. Don’t get me wrong, veteran backup Matt Moore is pretty good. He’s just not as gifted as the reigning league MVP. Oh…did I forget to mention there’s the fact that Kansas City’s defense is borderline atrocious and that the AFC West Super Bowl contenders are 1-4 ATS in their last five home games? Minnesota wins and covers the chalk here.
Pick: Minnesota 27 Kansas City 21
Indianapolis (5-2) at Pittsburgh (3-4)
- When: Sunday, November 3, 2019 at 1:00 PM ET
- Where: Heinz Field, Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania
- NFL Week 9 Odds: Pittsburgh -1 / Total: 42.5
Indianapolis has won three straight and five of their last six including a thrilling 15-13 win over Denver that came on a 51-yard game winner by future Hall of Famer Adam Vinateri. More impressively, Indy smacked down, both Houston and Kansas City the previous two weeks.While the Colts are ranked a modest 16th in scoring (22.6 ppg) and 14th in points allowed (21.6 ppg), Indianapolis simply finds a way to exploit their opponent’s weakness at the most opportune time. Not only that, but while the Colts rank an uninspiring 22nd in passing, underrated quarterback Jacoby Brissette has been very efficient in completing 64.5 percent of his passes while throwing 14 TD passes and just three interceptions.
After starting out 0-3 following the season-ending loss of franchise quarterback Ben Roethlisberger, Pittsburgh has gotten it together by winning two straight and three of four including a 27-14 win over the atrocious Miami Dolphins on Monday night.
Pittsburgh is ranked just 19th in scoring (19.0 ppg) and 13th in points allowed (20.7 ppg), but young quarterback Mason Rudolph has been solid in throwing nine TD passes and just three picks while completing 63.8 percent of his passes in six starts.
The Colts have gone a consistent 5-1-1 ATS in their last 7 road games and 4-1 ATS in their last 5 games following an ATS loss while Pittsburgh has gone 3-7-1 ATS in their last 11 games when playing on Sunday following a Monday night game and 1-5 ATS in their last 6 home games against a team with a winning road record. For me, I’m saying, no Andrew Luck, no problem. Indy wins with a solid all-around performance.
Pick: Indianapolis 24 Pittsburgh 20
New England (8-0) at Baltimore (5-2)
- When: Sunday, November 3, 2019 at 8:20 PM ET
- Where: M&T Bank Stadium, Baltimore, Maryland
- NFL Week 9 Odds: New England -3.5 / Total: 44.5
Tom Brady and the defending Super Bowl champion Patriots might be a perfect 8-0, but I think it’s important to note that seven of their victories have comes against teams with losing records and their only ‘real’ test resulted in a narrow 16-10 win over Buffalo. Still, the Pats are ranked first in scoring (31.2 ppg) and first in points allowed (7.6 ppg) and they’ve got a pair of future Hall of Famers in Brady and head coach Bill Belichick that are both still getting the job done, with relative ease I might add.
Baltimore has won three straight and will be well-rested after getting a bye in Week 8. The Ravens have gotten it done in a hostile setting by beating Pittsburgh in overtime in Week 5 and they’ve gotten it done in emphatic fashion over a quality opponent by smacking Seattle around in Week 6. Quarterback Lamar Jackson has rushed for a mind-boggling 268 yards in Baltimore’s last two wins while adding a rushing score in each contest. The Ravens are ranked a modest 16th in points allowed (22.3 ppg), but a fantastic second in scoring (30.6 ppg).
The road team in this rivalry has gone 6-1-1 ATS in their last 8 meetings, but the underdog has gone 5-2-1 ATS in the last eight meetings. You heard it here first Mybookie.ag NFL sports gambling faithful. Lamar Jackson leads Baltimore to the confidence-boosting upset at home against Tom Brady and the unbeaten defending Super Bowl champs.
Pick: Baltimore 21 New England 20
