Week 9 NFL Picks and College Football Picks | Odds Shark’s Guys & Bets (Episode 287)

With football being at the forefront of sports, even more so than usual, Odds Shark cappers Joe Osborne and Andrew Avery have their best bets all set for this weekend’s action.

Joe starts off looking at the Seattle Seahawks-Buffalo Bills game in Orchard Park. Russell Wilson has torched the NFL this season, and takes the aerial show on the road. Wilson leads the NFL with 26 touchdowns as DK Metcalf and Tyler Lockett are coming into their own as a receiving tandem. It’s a stiff test for the AFC East-leading Buffalo Bills and their defense would need to be better for them to keep up.

The Denver Broncos are in Atlanta to face the Falcons, and the total is set at 50. The Broncos are fresh off a thrilling last-minute comeback win over the Chargers, as Drew Lock led the charge and could’ve had his breakout game. Betting or cheering for the Falcons this season has been a wild ride, so we’ll see what Sunday has in store.

Lastly for Joe, it’s teaser time! After a convincing home win last week, the Miami Dolphins are in the desert to take on the Arizona Cardinals. The Cardinals have had a nice start to their season, and the Kyler Murray-to-DeAndre Hopkins connection has looked superb. But the Dolphins boast a secondary that has the ability to limit the damage that duo could do. It’s the second start for Tua Tagovailoa and the rookie signal-caller should have an opportunity to post better numbers than in his debut. Joe is able to get the Dolphins all the way up to +10.5. He’s pairing the Fins with an NFC East team.

Ninja’s first of two college football bets is an SEC match with the Arkansas Razorbacks hosting the Tennessee Volunteers. The Hogs are coming off a backdoor cover with a garbage-time touchdown last week against Texas A&M and have been a covering machine this season. Tennessee is 75th in FBS in pass yardage allowed per game with 254 yards, so that could set up well for Arkansas quarterback Feleipe Franks, who is averaging just over 240 yards through the air this season.

The Pac-12 gets rolling this weekend, and that’s where Ninja is looking for this bet. Big change for Washington State this season as longtime head coach Mike Leach is gone and replaced by Nick Rolovich. Oregon State returns some key players on defense, which bodes well for the home squad. It’s a small number on the spread and that’s where Ninja is looking.
