Action is rolling in, and the Week 9 NFL odds are on the move as we head towards a 14-game slate with four teams on bye. The Dolphins are still winless at 0-7, but they host the 1-6 Jets on Sunday. The Jets are now favored by only a field goal after Miami challenged its last three opponents and is riding a three-week streak of covers. At three points, that game now features one of the tightest NFL lines of the week after the spread opened at 5.5. Meanwhile, after opening as a pick’em, the Colts are now one-point favorites on the road over the Steelers, who could be without running back James Conner (shoulder). Another one of the Week 9 NFL spreads on the move is Browns vs. Broncos, as Denver opened up as a 1.5-point favorite only to see that line shift all the way to Cleveland -3. The reason: Brandon Allen will start this week in place of the injured Joe Flacco (neck). Before you make any NFL picks, you need to see the latest NFL predictions from the proven computer model at SportsLine.
This model, which simulates every NFL game 10,000 times, is up almost $7,000 for $100 players on its top-rated NFL picks since its inception four years ago. It enters Week 9 of the 2019 NFL schedule on a 25-17 run on top-rated NFL picks and an incredible 87-60 roll on top-rated NFL picks that dates back to the 2017 season. The model also ranked in the Top 10 on NFLPickWatch the past three years. Anyone who has followed it has seen huge returns.
Now, it has examined the latest Week 9 NFL odds and lines, simulated every snap, and its Week 9 NFL predictions are in. Here are three of the games it’s most confident in this week:
Lions vs. Raiders (-2, 50.5): The model’s strongest Week 9 NFL pick comes in Lions vs. Raiders (-2), one of four late-afternoon (ET) kickoffs Sunday. In fact, SportsLine’s model says one side of the spread hits in almost 60 percent of simulations. Both teams have hot quarterbacks and playoff hopes: The Lions are 3-3-1, the Raiders 3-4. And both are 4-3 against the spread, with the Lions going 4-1 ATS as underdogs. These teams haven’t met since 2015.
Colts vs. Steelers (+1, 43): Despite the slight bobble in the line, the model is still high on one side of Colts vs. Steelers from Heinz Field. In fact, it says one team covers in well over 50 percent of simulations. Conner is coming off a huge game, but he suffered an AC joint sprain late in Pittsburgh’s win over the Dolphins last week. As a result, Jaylen Samuels, who’s coming off a knee injury, could be the lead back. Indianapolis is 4-2-1 against the spread this season overall and 5-1-1 in its last seven road games. However, the Steelers are 4-1 against the number in their last five games after gaining at least 350 yards of total offense in their previous contest.
Texans vs. Jaguars (+1.5, 46.5): Another one of the strong Week 9 NFL predictions comes in the 2019 NFL London game, a 9:30 a.m. ET kickoff. In this AFC South battle, the Texans are favored by 2.5 over the Jaguars. The model favors one side in well over 50 percent of simulations. Houston (5-3) has won nine of the past 11 meetings, including a 13-12 squeaker at home in Week 2. The Texans, who just lost J.J. Watt (pectoral) for the season, didn’t come close to covering that Sept. 15 meeting as 7.5-point favorites. Jacksonville (4-4) enters off two straight wins and covers.
The model also has made the call against the spread, on the over-under, and on the money line for every other game on the Week 9 NFL schedule. It’s projecting a Super Bowl contender to go down hard, so you need to see its NFL picks before locking in any of your own.
Who should you back against the spread, on the money line and the total in every Week 9 NFL game? And which Super Bowl contender gets stunned?
