2017: On The Line — Week 9
The lines are looked at vigorously for those trying to make some extra money or those just looking for who is favored this weekend. Before my picks each week, I will list my current win/loss and push record from the previous week with my overall season record. I present to you the Vegas line of each NFL game this week:
Week 8: 7–5–1
Overall Record: 58–59–2 (49.6%)
TNF: Bills (-3) at Jets
Jets (+3). I️ don’t know what it is about Thursday’s but the road team has been terrible all year. J E T S Jets, Jets Jets!
Ravens at Titans (-3.5)
Titans (-3.5). Take the Titans in a game where Mallet is starting.
Buccaneers at Saints (-7)
Saints (-7). The Saints are clicking on all cylinders and the Bucs are in too deep of disarray that I cannot take them.
Rams (-3.5) at Giants
Rams (-3.5). The Giants will get boo-ed continuously at home and Todd Gurley is fresh off his bye. He will run over this Giants defense.
Broncos at Eagles (-8.5)
Eagles (-8.5). I wish I could take the Broncos but I need to see what Osweiler can do now that he is back as the Denver starter. Eagles by 10.
Falcons at Panthers (-1)
Falcons (+1). Give me the struggling Falcons over the team that just traded their best receiver to the Bills.
Bengals at Jaguars (-5)
Jaguars (-5). I despise the Bengals and the red rifle (Andy Dalton) more than Blake Bortles. New defensive tackle Marcel Darius makes an impact play on defense for the Jags.
Colts at Texans (-12.5)
Colts (+12.5). Two hours after I️ originally posted this, Houston quarterback Deshaun Watson suffered a torn ACL. Horrible loss for the Texans. Take the points now.
Cardinals (-2) at 49ers
49ers (+2). Shanahan gets his first win over Drew Stanton and the Cardinals.
Redskins at Seahawks (-7.5)
Redskins (+7.5). The Redskins are too banged up for me to pick my upset but they can cover.
Chiefs (-1) at Cowboys
Chiefs (-1). Kareem Hunt gets himself back on track and destroys this Cowboys defense.
SNF: Raiders (-3) at Dolphins
Raiders (-3). Give me the quarterback and the pass rush of the Raiders.
MNF: Lions (-2.5) at Packers
Lions (-2.5). Sorry Hundley, Stafford puts the game out of reach and you make mistakes because of it.
