49ers Road Chalk vs Redskins

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.


Chiefs Host Dolphins in Week 9 Betting

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.


Point spread favors Falcons over Colts

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.


Texans host Browns in Week 9 betting

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.


Rans Try for Second Win in Desert

St. Louis looks to make it two straight wins after their upset of the Saints at the expense of an Arizona team that is sputtering badly in Week 9 NFL odds action.

The teams have played 6 straight unders in a battle where the Rams have struggled to a 1-8 SU run past 9 vs the Cardinals. Arizona meanwhile is 0-6 SU and ATS in their past 6 games within the NFC West.

Totals bettors should be aware that the Cards have played OVER in 7 of their past 8 November home games. They blew a big lead in falling to Baltimore last week.


Raiders vs Broncos AFC West Pick

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.
