Welcome back to our Five Favorite Bets For Week 9 of the 2021 season! Last week we hit on 3 of our five bets. We are now at 23-19 on the season with our best bets. Time to rebound and get a clean sweep in Week 9.
New York Jets at Indianapolis Colts (-11.5)
The Jets just stunned the Bengals on Sunday, who is a better team than the Colts. I don’t think the Colts will overlook the Jets, but 11.5 points is not a number I trust Carson Wentz to cover.
Pick: Jets +11.5
Houston Texans at Miami Dolphins (-7)
This matchup will be ugly as it can get. Both teams are bad, but I think a 7 point spread is way too much here. Dolphins might win, but the Texans can cover. So I think the under is in play here as well.
Pick: Texans +7
Green Bay Packers at Kansas City Chiefs (-7)
I was fully prepared to hammer the Packers this week before the news that Aaron Rodgers will miss the game due to Covid. Jordan Love gets his first start this week against Patrick Mahomes. We have no idea what to expect. In that case, I will go with Patrick Mahomes. This line will move higher, in my opinion, so if you like the Chiefs, grab them at this number while you can.
Arizona Cardinals (-2.5) at San Francisco 49ers
The Cardinals and Niners always play close games. The Cardinals were dealt their first loss of the season by the Packers last week. I am going on a gut feeling here and taking the 49ers to win outright at home and give the Cardinals their second loss.
Pick: 49ers +2.5 (ML bonus)
Tennessee Titans at Los Angeles Rams (-7.5)
This game is the only week nine matchup between two teams with winning records, and sadly lost a lot of its spark with the news of Derrick Henry’s injury. Henry was the Titan’s offense. Everything fed off of him. With Julio Jones not having made any impact this year, it’s hard to see Ryan Tannehill find a way to pull this one out. The Rams take care of business at home.
Pick: Rams – 7.5
Best of luck to everyone this week, and thank you for reading our Five Favorite Bets For Week 9!
