Either the New York Jets or the Buffalo Bills will take a step closer to making the playoffs when the teams clash in an AFC East battle Sunday.
The Jets come off their bye to face a Bills team that hammered Washington last Sunday. New York has lost the past two seasons post-bye, but before that had reeled off 8 straight ATS victories. And while the Jets are 4-1 SU and ATS in their past 5 at Buffalo, NFL bettors looking for line value may find it on the total.

Suddenly the Cincinnati Bengals are a serious playoff threat and good investment for bettors as the Week 9 NFL odds come out.
The Bengals come off an impressive road victory and open as small underdogs at Tennessee, a team with a brewing controversy at running back where Javon Ringer has outplayed superstar Chris Johnson. Of note, the teams have played 6 straight OVERs at Tennessee.
However, many of the trends seem to point to a Cincy cover here. The Bengals are 5-0 ATS their past 5 road games and they have packed a nasty bite as an underdog, going 6-1 ATS in seven recent games. The young Cincinnati team is worth a look here and we expect the spread to move during the week.

One week after a 62-7 thrashing of the Colts, the Saints were upset as 15-point favorites by the winless St. Louis Rams.
So what happens as they return home to face a division rival that has caused them plenty of headaches over the years? For starters, these teams tend to play low-scoring games as the past six games all went UNDER the total.
Second, the Buccaneers are terrific road warriors going 10-2 ATS and 9-3 SU in their past 12 road games. They have also been tough as a dog, at 7-3 ATS past 10 games as an NFL underdog.

Washington comes off a humiliating shutout loss against Buffalo to face a surging San Francisco 49ers team that is eyeng the NFC West title.
The 49ers are 6-0-1 ATS in 7 games this season and 5-1-1 ATS in their past 7 November road games. San Fran has also been a solid NFL betting option when favored (they opened at -3) going 6-0 ATS lately.
The Redskins are just 1-6 ATS in their past 7 November home games and they have struggled against the NFC West 2-8-2 ATS past 12.
However, the 49ers have struggled against the NFC East as well, going 2-12 SU lately.

Miami lost again in Week 8 to fall to 0-7 but the Dolphins played much better and are a serious threat to win here at Kansas City.
Historically, they have done well against the Chiefs, going 6-2-1 ATS in the past nine on the NFL spread vs KC, but they have been a toothless underdog lately as well, going 1-6 ATS in seven games. The Chiefs will play on a short week after their Monday Night match against the Chargers.

Even before Peyton Manning was lost for the 2011 season, the Indianapolis Colts had struggled as an underdog.
Now, the Colts have lost 10 straight as a dog and opened as 8-point home pups against the Atlanta Falcons in Week 9 NFL wagering action. And even when they were winning, the Colts were not a good bet at home in November (8-1 SU, but 1-8 ATS past 9 games).
Atlanta comes off its bye week in good shape and historically has been a good bet in November, going 8-3 ATS in past few seasons.

Cleveland struggles to score and Houston continues to make due without WR Andre Johnson as the teams hook up on the Week 9 NFL odds menu.
Not surprisingly, these teams have played 5 straight unders when they meet. The UNDER angle has also prevailed lately when the Texans are favored (7-1 past 8 times).
For the Browns, they have struggled to win on the road in November, but they have been pretty adept at covering the point spread (they are 2-7 SU but 7-2 ATS). The Browns opened as double-digit road underdogs and this line bears watching as it may climb during the week.

The Oakland Raiders have not been favored by this much since the 2003 season and we'll see if they learned much from their bye week as they host the Denver Broncos in Week 9 NFL betting action.
In past years, the Raiders have been a betting wasteland after their bye - they lost 8 consecutive season ATS (and the UNDER was a solid bet too at 7-1). They get an opponent and a situation they have dominated however here.
