NFL Week 9 gambling: 5 favorites to bet

We’ve already covered the NFL Week 9 Underdogs in this week’s betting. Today, we’ll take a look at the best favorites bets for NFL Week 9.


5. Houston Texans at Denver Broncos (-1)

Right up front, this is one of those picks from the gut. The favorites aren’t all great bets this week, and the Broncos feel like a team ready to put forth a good effort. Denver has been a tough out all year and a loss here would all but end the season. Additionally, the Texans have perhaps the least-inspiring five-game winning streak in the history of the sport. Going into Mile High is never easy, but Houston draws the tough assignment of playing a desperate team as well.

4. Pittsburgh Steelers at Baltimore Ravens (-3)

Maybe the best game of the week in terms of meaning and passion. Baltimore and Pittsburgh have a genuine dislike for each other, something you rarely see in pro sports. The Ravens have lost two straight and either win this game or wave goodbye to their dreams of becoming AFC North champs. Meanwhile, the Steelers are gunning for their fourth consecutive victory and a season split with the Ravens, who beat them at Heinz Field back in Week 4. Baltimore needs this one more, is at home, and the defense should be flying. Look for the Ravens to get it done.

3. Kansas City Chiefs (-8.5) at Cleveland Browns

The Chiefs are simply a much better team, and the Browns are trying to rejigger their entire coaching staff this week. Why Cleveland didn’t wait until its bye week to fire Hue Jackson and Todd Haley is anybody’s best guess, but Kansas City is in prime position to take advantage of it. Patrick Mahomes leads the NFL in passing yards and touchdowns, and the Browns, while solid defensively, are going to have a brutal time keeping up.

2. Los Angeles Rams at New Orleans Saints (-1.5)

The Saints and Rams are going to wage an epic battle in the Superdome come Sunday afternoon. Two of the top offenses in the league will go at it, while Sean McVay and Sean Payton match wits on opposing sidelines, hoping to find the one weakness in the other that tips the scales. While the Rams are undefeated, the Saints haven’t lost since Week 1, and at some juncture, Los Angeles is going to fall. It’s been close in a couple of games, and it finally happens here in a thriller.

1. Chicago Bears (-10) at Buffalo Bills

The Bills are starting Nathan Peterman. Have you seen Nathan Peterman? He might be the worst quarterback to ever attempt at least 50 passes, completing 45 percent of his throws with three touchdowns and nine interceptions over two starts and four appearances. In 2018, it’s almost impossible to be that bad… unless you’re Nathan Peterman.
