Posted by Eric Williams on Friday,November 4, 2016 10:35, EST in

Seven intriguing NFL matchups are in the spotlight as we look at the odds for the biggest matchups on the Week 9 docket.

Will the Oakland Raiders upset the Denver Broncos in their highly-anticipated FC West divisional showdown or will the Philadelphia Eagles snap the New York Giants’ modest winning streak in their NFC East divisional date? Let’s take a look inside the odds.

Here’s A Closer Look At The NFL Week 9 Betting Lines For Biggest Matchups

 

 

Denver at Oakland

When: Sunday, November 6 at 8:30 PM ET
Where: Oakland Coliseum
TV: NBC
Odds: Denver -1

Analysis: The Denver Broncos and Oakland Raiders have both won two straight games and both have legitimate playoff hopes right now. The Broncos are a 1-point road favorite, because of their outstanding defense, but I’m not so sure they should be, seeing as how Derek Carr and the Raiders keep finding ways to ‘just win baby’.

Philadelphia at NY Giants

When: Sunday, November 6, 2016 at 1:00 PM ET
Where: MetLife Stadium
TV: FOX
Odds: NY Giants -2.5

Analysis: The Philadelphia Eagles (4-3 SU, 4-3 ATS) have lost three of four while the

New York Giants (4-3 SU, 2-3-2 ATS) have won two straight. Both teams have identical 4-3 records right now, but still, for me, it doesn’t feel like the Giants are the better team with Philly ranking inside the top 10 in both scoring and points allowed defensively.

Buffalo at Seattle

When: Monday, November 7, 2016 at 8:30 PM ET
Where: CenturyLink Field
TV: ESPN
Odds: Seattle -6.5

Analysis: The Buffalo Bills (4-4 SU, 4-4 ATS) have lost two straight and had their three-game winning streak emphatically snapped against New England last weekend.

The Seattle Seahawks (4-2-1 SU, 3-4 ATS) enter this contest off a Week 6 tie and 25-20 Week 7 upset loss against New Orleans. While Russell Wilson and company are my pick to get the win and ATS cover, I’m not real fond of the 6.5-point spread – and I believe Seattle’s uninspiring offense could give Seahawks betting backers a reason for concern.

Indianapolis at Green Bay

When: Sunday, November 6, 2016 at 4:25 PM ET
Where: Lambeau Field
TV: CBS
Total: 54

Analysis: Andrew Luck and the Indianapolis Colts are putting up a solid 26.0 points per game to rank an encouraging ninth in scoring. Aaron Rodgers and the Green Bay Packers are averaging 24.5 points per game to rank respectable 11th in scoring. Make no mistake about it, this looks like an exciting, high-scoring shootout just waiting to happen – and 54 total points looks very manageable to me!

Pittsburgh at Baltimore

When: Sunday, November 6, 2016 at 1:00 PM ET
Where: M&T Bank Stadium
TV: CBS
Odds: Baltimore -3

Analysis: The Steelers (4-3 SU, 4-3 ATS) have dropped two straight games, but will get quarterback Ben Roethlisberger back on the field for their Week 9 matchup against the Baltimore Ravens (3-4 SU, 2-5 ATS). Can the Ravens cover the spread as field goal home favorites against their hated AFC North division rivals or will Big Ben get the Steelers back on track for a high seed in the AFC playoffs?

Detroit at Minnesota

When: Sunday, November 6, 2016 at 1:00 PM ET
Where: U.S. Bank Stadium
TV: FOX
Odds: Minnesota -6

Analysis: The Detroit Lions (4-4 SU, 4-4 ATS) had their three-game winning streak snapped in their humbling 20-13 loss to Houston last weekend, but Minnesota (5-2 SU, 5-2 ATS) has been limited to just 10 points in two straight losses against Philly in Week 7 and Chicago on Monday night.

Can the Vikes cover the spread as nearly touchdown home faves or will Matthew Stafford and the Lions turn this NFC North divisional matchup into a knock-down, drag-out affair?  I’m going with the former – but just barely.

NY Jets at Miami

When: Sunday, November 6, 2016 at 1:00 PM ET
Where: Hard Rock Stadium
TV: CBS
Odds: Miami -3.5

Analysis: The New York Jets (3-5 SU, 3-4-1 ATS) and Miami Dolphins (3-4 SU, 3-4 ATS) have both won two straight games, but let’s be honest for a moment.

Miami’s wins over Pittsburgh and Buffalo have been far more impressive than New York’s wins over Baltimore and lowly Cleveland. I know you’re going to be shocked to see me write it…but I’m actually thinking Ryan Tannehill is going to be the best quarterback on the field in this one, making the Dolphins the pick to win and cover the NFL betting line as 3.5-point home favorites against the Jets.
