Highlight Sharp NFL Betting Picks For Week 9
If you’re looking for some sharp NFL betting picks, then consider your ticket punched! Drew Brees, Derek Carr and Russell Wilson are all in the spotlight as they look to lead their respective teams to Week 9 victories.
Thanks to the trio of sharp NFL picks that you’re about to get, you’re going to have a great chance to cash in three times this coming weekend. Now, let’s get started.
Analyzing The Highlight Sharp NFL Betting Picks For Week 9
Denver at Oakland
When: Sunday, November 6 at 8:30 PM ET
Where: Oakland Coliseum
Odds: Denver -1
Analysis: The Denver Broncos have won two straight games and managed to get past San Diego 27-19 this past weekend. The Oakland Raiders have also won two straight, but they’re the talk of the NFL because of their young quarterback, gifted wide receiver and generally thrilling style of play. I know Denver has an elite defense that ranks fifth in points allowed (17.0 ppg) and that the Broncos picked off Philip Rivers three times last weekend, but I’m going to urge you to back the Raiders in this Week 9 AFC West showdown because of their explosive offense.
I’m not real fond of Denver’s mediocre offense and I believe the loss of running back C.J. Andersen for this contest will hurt the broncos far more than they expect, while Oakland gets at least two or three huge passing plays to turn the tide. The Raiders may have the best pair of starting wide receivers in the NFL in veteran Michael Crabtree and young star Amari Cooper and I believe both players will make their marks felt in this contest – even against Denver’s stout defense.
I know the Broncos are 8-2 ATS in their last 10 games and 4-1 ATS in their last five road games, but Oakland has gone 9-4 ATS in their last 13 games against their AFC conference counterparts and 4-2 ATS in their last six games overall. With the Raiders getting a point at home, I say Derek Carr and company get the upset to cover the NFL betting line.
Pick: Oakland 24 Denver 21
New Orleans at San Francisco
When: Sunday, November 6, 2016 at 4:05 PM ET
Where: Levi’s Stadium
Odds: New Orleans -3
Analysis: If the San Francisco 49ers (1-6 SU, 1-6 ATS) had done their due diligence and looked at all of the issues plaguing Chip Kelly toward the end of his tenure in Philadelphia, they would have never hired the former architect of Oregon’s perennially powerful program. Now that they have, they’re finding out that Kelly and his fast-paced offense simply aren’t suited for the NFL, the Niners are in dire straits. Drew Brees and the New Orleans Saints (3-4 SU, 5-2 ATS) have won three of their last four games, including Sunday’s stunning 25-20 upset over Seattle.
San Francisco has lost six straight games since winning their opener including their humbling 34-17 Week 7 loss against Tampa Bay. There’s no way the Niners win this contest against a Saints team that has a future Hall of Fame quarterback and can score the ball with the best teams in the league. New Orleans averages an impressive 28.7 points per game to rank second in scoring while San Francisco averages just 20.5 points per game to rank 23rd. The Saints have won seven of their last 10 meetings against San Francisco and are the easy pick to get the ATS win in this Week 9 pairing.
Pick: New Orleans 31 San Francisco 21
Buffalo at Seattle
When: Monday, November 7, 2016 at 8:30 PM ET
Where: CenturyLink Field
Odds: Seattle -6.5
Analysis: The Seattle Seahawks (4-2-1 SU, 3-4 ATS) haven’t looked like a Super Bowl contender in tying Arizona two weeks ago and falling to New Orleans 25-20 this past weekend. Still, Russell Wilson and company are the pick to get the win and ATS cover against a Buffalo Bills (4-4 SU, 4-4 ATS) team that has lost two straight and got smacked senseless in their 41-25 Week 8 loss against New England last weekend.
The Seahawks should be a bit desperate to get back in the win column and I believe they will thanks to their stout defense (15.5 ppg) which ranks third in points allowed. Buffalo quarterback Tyrod Taylor is completing just 58.7 percent of his passes this season and Shady McCoy is still banged-up and almost assuredly not at 100 percent.
I’m expecting Seattle head coach Pete Carroll to thoroughly outcoach New York’s Rex Ryan to help Seattle improve on their uninspiring 3-6 ATS mark in its last nine games. With Buffalo going just 2-6 SU and 2-5-1 ATS in their last eight road games, I say the Seahawks get the win and super narrow ATS cover.
Pick: Seattle 27 Buffalo 20
