NFL Betting – More Week 9 Picks

NFL Betting – More Week 9 Picks Now that all the NFL odds for Week 9 are posted, it’s time to peruse more games. Earlier this week we tried to sell on you on the Cardinals and Eagles; here are some more NFL picks to consider.

Washington Redskins @ Atlanta Falcons (-10)

Sunday, November 8, 1:00 p.m. ET

Finally, a break for the Falcons. As much as they’ve stumbled in recent weeks, their last five opponents were New England, San Francisco, Chicago, Dallas and New Orleans. Four of those games were on the road. It’s not that the Falcons will necessarily light up the Redskins; Washington actually ranks second in the NFL in pass defense and Matt Ryan has been easily rattled in the pocket of late. It’s that Washington just won’t score. The Falcons rank near the bottom of the league in total defense but that stat partially reflects their tough schedule. They showed the Saints in Week 8 that they can pressure a quarterback and they’ll be very successful if they do that to the jittery Jason Campbell. The game may not be a barn burner but the Falcons should cover.

Online betting pick: Falcons -10

San Diego Chargers @ New York Giants (-4.5)

Sunday, November 8, 4:15 p.m. ET

Even against the struggling Giants, the Chargers will get exposed as pretenders this week. Forgive me for not getting excited about a team whose four wins came against Oakland (twice), Miami and Kansas City. The Giants will gobble up the Chargers’ anemic rushing attack and, more importantly, they should run wild themselves. Brandon Jacobs and Ahmad Bradshaw are due to bust out and the Chargers, who allow 132.1 rushing yards per game, are the perfect facilitators. Don’t be surprised if the Giants run 40 times on Sunday as they get back in the win column and cover the 4.5-point spread quite easily. They’re excellent sportsbook options this week.

Online betting pick: Giants -4.5
