Denver-Indianapolis Betting Odds

Denver Broncos Peyton Manning

It’s always interesting watching longtime Indianapolis Colt Peyton Manning face off against his former club, but the Week 9 date between the Denver Broncos and Colts at Lucas Oil Stadium features a matchup of two teams heading in opposite directions. Historically speaking Indy has been a lights out straight up and against the spread when playing Denver, as the Colts are 7-1 SU and 8-0 ATS in the last eight meetings between the clubs.

Shark Bites
  • The Broncos are 8-1 SU in their last nine games after winning as an underdog.
  • The Colts are 5-13 ATS in their last 18 games at home in November.
  • The Broncos are 9-3 SU in their last 12 games on the road in November.

Denver is coming off a huge 29-10 triumph over the Green Bay Packers in which they made superstar signal caller Aaron Rodgers look human. The Broncos’ smothering defense is a big reason for their spotless 7-0 SU record, as the unit ranks first in the NFL in total yards against at 261.1 per game and first in points allowed (16).

Home field advantage is always big in the NFL and it’s been no different in this matchup. Home teams have gone 7-3 SU in the past 10 clashes between the Colts and Broncos.

Week 9 SNF Betting: Eagles at Cowboys

Demarco Murray and Sam Bradford Eagles

Just how underwhelming has the NFC East been this season? How much time do you have? Regardless of the less than stellar quality of play on the field, the Philadelphia Eagles and Dallas Cowboys collide once again in Week 9 at “Jerry World.” 

Road teams have dominated this matchup when it comes to cashing spread bets, as the visiting club has gone 7-1 ATS in the last eight meetings between Philly and Dallas.

The Cowboys got talented wideout Dez Bryant back in Week 8’s loss to the Seattle Seahawks, but it’s under center where Dallas’ issues are most pressing. Matt Cassel, filling in for injured QB Tony Romo and replacing Brandon Weeden, was unimpressive once again. Cassel finished with just 97 passing yards on the day and looked uncomfortable in the pocket which was most obvious in a failed last minute drive to win the game with the score 13-12 in favor of Seattle.

Vikings on a Tear for UNDER Bettors

Teddy Bridgewater Vikings

A battle of poorly performing offenses collide in Week 9 when the St. Louis Rams invade U.S. Bank Stadium for a date with the Minnesota Vikings. The Rams rank 30th in the NFL in total offense, while the Vikes aren’t much better at 29th in that department. St. Louis will be attempting to exact some revenge after 2014’s 34-6 dispiriting Week 1 loss. 

As a result of both teams’ offensive struggles, the UNDER has been cashing in their matchups. The OVER/UNDER is 1-6 in Minny’s first seven games and has paid out in five out of St. Louis’s seven appearances so far.

Minnesota held on for a 23-20 win over division rival Chicago in Week 8, covering the closing -1.5 spread in the process. Teddy Bridgewater’s squad continues to be on fire for bettors this year, going 6-1 ATS – a number which ties them with the Bengals for the most covers in the 2015 campaign.

Jaguars Have Had Edge ATS vs. Jets

Jaguars wide receiver Hurns

In what’s become a common theme in Jacksonville, the 2015 season could soon become yet another lost one for the Jaguars if the team can’t find ways to string together victories. Gus Bradley’s club will try and get things on the right track in Week 9 opposite the New York Jets at MetLife Stadium. 

The Jags (2-5 SU, 3-4 ATS) are lucky to be playing in the suddenly weak AFC South, but have allowed opponents to put up 207 points while only registering 147 of their own so far this year.

The Jets, who failed to cover the -3 spread in Week 8 by losing 34-20 to the Oakland Raiders, have historically not performed well in this position. In their last 12 games following a SU loss as favorites, New York is a paltry 1-11 ATS.

Falcons on a Four Game ATS Skid

Atlanta Falcons Freeman

It’s been a season to forget for the San Francisco 49ers, as an offseason of turmoil has culminated into a 2-6 record through eight weeks of play. Levi’s Stadium, the Niners’ new plush home, hasn’t exactly done the 49ers any favors when it comes to covering the spread. San Fran is just 3-11 ATS in their last 14 home games – a trend that won’t exactly inspire any confidence in backers of the red and gold ahead of the team’s Week 9’s clash against the Atlanta Falcons in the Golden State.

Atlanta (6-2 SU, 4-4 ATS) has looked considerably better under first year head coach Dan Quinn but has hit a rough patch as of late. The Falcons have failed to cover in four consecutive games after going 4-0 ATS to start the year. 

Atlanta was listed as 8-point chalk in Week 8 but fell to the lowly Tampa Bay Buccaneers 23-20, meaning a date with the down and out 49ers could be just what the doctor ordered for this team to get back on track at the betting window.

PIT Good at Bouncing Back After Losses

Antonio Brown Steelers Wide Receiver

The Oakland Raiders aren’t looking like the same team we’ve seen over the last decade for a multitude of reasons, thanks largely in part to a young offense that’s finding its groove. But in light of Week 8’s 34-20 victory over the New York Jets, Oakland will need to gain some consistency. Derek Carr’s squad, who closed as 3-point underdogs in that game, are just 2-10 SU and ATS in their last 12 games after winning as dogs the previous week.

Pittsburgh lost to division rival Cincinnati last week but suffered an even bigger loss on the field. Star running back Le’Veon Bell was forced to leave the game with a knee injury, and has since been ruled out for the season due to a torn MCL.

One good bit of news for bettors of the Steel Curtain is the club’s ability to bounce back after a loss. Pittsburgh is 8-2 SU and 7-2-1 ATS in their last 10 games after coming up short the previous week.

NFL Odds: Patriots Look to Pummel 'Skins

Redskins Garcon

How much chalk is too much chalk? That’s the question oddsmakers have been forced to answer in regards to the Week 9 contest featuring the New England Patriots and Washington Redskins at Gilette Stadium. Sportsbooks in Vegas and offshore opened the Pats as 14-point favorites for the clash, with some even posting numbers as high as -15. 

That’s what happens when you’re as good as the Patriots are. New England has seemingly carried the momentum from Super Bowl XLIX forward and have strung together seven consecutive wins out of the gate, going 4-2-1 ATS during that span. 

In something that’s become the unfortunate norm for ‘Skins fans and backers alike, Washington has been underwhelming to say the least in 2015. Behind new starting quarterback Kirk Cousins, the Redskins have gone 3-4 SU and ATS in their first seven games. 

Washington topped Tampa Bay 31-30 in Week 7 before having a bye in Week 8, which won’t inspire any confidence for Redskins bettors. In their last 10 games after a win, the ‘Skins have collected just one victory the following week.

NFL Week 9 Expert Betting Odds Picks

Going with two favorites and a total for the NFL Week 9 card. Let's begin with the totals play, which is under 45 on the Atlanta-San Francisco game.

The 49ers have played much stronger defense at Levi's Stadium giving up an average of only 15 points per game. That would rank No. 1 in the NFL if that number included all of San Francisco's games.
