NFL Week 9: Computer Predictions
Fresh off a winning week, the OddsShark Computer heads into November poised for a strong finish to the NFL regular season.
The Computer’s Week 9 picks are highlighted by an upset play in the Chicago Bears-Green Bay Packers Monday night game.
Green Bay has won six straight against the Bears, covering the number in five of those meetings. The Packers have covered the spread in 12 of their last 13 NFC North games overall and will be facing a Chicago team without starting quarterback Jay Cutler. Josh McCown is expected to start for the Bears.
Nevertheless, the Computer likes Chicago to keep it close and cover the double-digit point spread in a shootout at Lambeau Field.

The Computer has tabbed the New Orleans Saints as one of the biggest locks on the Week 9 board. The Saints are 6-point favorites on the road at the New York Jets, but the Computer believes the Saints are headed for an easy 18-point victory.
The Computer also foresees the Indianapolis Colts having no problem on the road at the Houston Texans in the Sunday night game. The Colts are 3-point favorites over a Houston team expected to start backup Case Keenum at quarterback. The Computer has Andrew Luck and the Colts winning easily, with the final score somewhere around 28-11.
The Computer expects the undefeated Kansas City Chiefs to keep rolling, easily covering the spread in a double-digit win at the Buffalo Bills. Buffalo quarterback Thad Lewis is battling bruised ribs and missed practice time this week.
The Computer is calling for just one upset this week, as it sees the Oakland Raiders winning their second straight game by knocking off the favored Philadelphia Eagles in a low-scoring affair.
