Posted by Derrick Harper on October 31, 2017 in

The National Football League is in the second half of the season for most teams already. After 8 weeks, we have a mess on which teams are actually contenders, and which teams are not. The Philadelphia Eagles have just one loss on the season, while there is a pair of teams that have yet to win this season. Those two teams are the Cleveland Browns and the San Francisco 49ers. The Browns are off this week, while San Francisco will host Arizona in a game they could win. Let’s take a look at the latest pro-football odds and Must Bet for NFL Week 9.

NFL Week 9 Must Bet Games & Expert Picks

New York Jets +3 over Buffalo Bills

Two teams out of the AFC East will get together for the Thursday Night Football game. While the Buffalo Bills have 5 wins, they need to look out for the Jets in this game. Sure, New York is last in the division, but have been a competitive bunch all season, including last week against the Jets. Josh McCown is putting up pretty good numbers here. Look for the Jets defense to contain Tyrod Taylor and Le’Sean McCoy, and McCown put up some good numbers against a really good Bills defense. Taking the home New York Jets is the way to go here.

New York Giants +3.5 over Los Angeles Rams

Eli Manning does not have a ton of weapons, but what his team can do is play defense. The Giants are starting to rush the football more effectively as well, with Orleans Darkwa leading the way. The Rams are coming off their bye week, as the leaders of the NFC West. This seems like a spot where the Giants make Jared Goff beat them, and that does not happen. In a low scoring game, the New York Giants find a way to win this game at home over the Rams.

Houston Texans -13 over Indianapolis Colts

DeShaun Watson has been one of the best quarterbacks in all of the National Football League in his rookie season. He is going to get plenty of good chances to blow away the worst scoring defense in the league. Will Fuller has been huge for the Texans, and of course, DeAndre Hopkins is still an elite receiver. Look for the Texans to blow the doors off the Colts at home. Indianapolis loses their 7th game of the season, which is the second most in the AFC.

Deshaun Watson and the Texans are huge favorites for NFL Week 9 against the Colts.
