2015 SuperContest: Week 9 Lines Set

Two of the four remaining undefeated NFL teams are double-digit favorites, one is a road favorite and the other a home underdog on the Week 9 SuperContest Card.

The Cincinnati Bengals (7-0) kick off the week on Thursday Night Football by playing the first of two meetings against the Cleveland Browns (2-6) as 11.5-point home favorites.

Last year, the Westgate Las Vegas SuperBook was having technical issues before this game in Week 10 and could not take any more SuperContest picks on either side. It ended up being a good thing for those who liked the Bengals as 6-point home chalk because they lost 24-3 to the Browns.

The defending Super Bowl champion New England Patriots (7-0) are the biggest favorites on the SuperContest Card and will need to beat the Washington Redskins (3-4) by two touchdowns or more to cover the 13.5-point spread.

The Patriots are coming off a 36-7 rout of the Miami Dolphins (3-4) in the Week 8 Thursday Night Football game as 8-point home chalk, so they will have extra time to prepare for the Redskins, who just had their bye after a 31-30 win over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

BRONCOS SET AS ROAD FAVORITES AGAINST INDY

The Denver Broncos (7-0) crushed the Green Bay Packers (6-1) in the Week 8 Sunday Night Football matchup 29-10 and visit the Indianapolis Colts (3-5) next as 5-point road chalk. Denver quarterback Peyton Manning has dropped two of three meetings with the Colts since signing with the Broncos.

That includes a 24-13 divisional playoff loss at home back in January as 9.5-point favorites and the team’s only visit to Indy with him under center two years ago, which resulted in a 39-33 setback as 6.5-point chalk.

Finally, the Packers will try to rebound from their first loss of the season at Denver against the Carolina Panthers (7-0). Green Bay will be playing an unbeaten team on the road for the second consecutive week as a favorite, this time as 2.5-point chalk.

The Packers have won their last five games following a loss while the Panthers will be playing on short rest after topping the Colts 29-26 in overtime on Monday Night Football. Carolina failed to cover as a 5-point favorite, falling to 5-2 against the spread.
