We have expert betting tips for every game on the NFL Round 9 schedule.
NFL Week 9 Preview
11:20am San Francisco 49ers vs. Arizona Cardinals @ State Farm Stadium
The San Francisco 49ers have been incredible this season and they could have a Super Bowl on the cards.
They enter this game unbeaten and playing on the road in Arizona isn’t really going to slow them down.
Jimmy G has been lights out and the 49ers defense has been incredible. Those factors are why the 49ers should be winning this game by double digits.

1:30am Houston Texans vs. Jacksonville Jaguars @ Wembley Stadium
Another edition of NFL England continues as the Texans square off against the Jaguars.
The season was going well for the Texans, and it still is, but losing J.J. Watt is a big loss for their defense.
Luckily, they still have Deshaun Watson, who is showing why he’s one of the best quarterbacks in the league.
Jacksonville sits at 4-4 and they’re capable of winning this game, but we’re going with Houston on neutral ground.

Texans by 7
5:00am Washington Redskins vs. Buffalo Bills @ New Era Stadium
Buffalo suffered a rare defeat last week but they should be able to bounce back.
The Bills come up against the very average Redskins, which are 1-7 on the season and that’s unlikely to get much better.
When Buffalo are on their game, they can be tough to beat. Playing at home should be enough to see them score a comfortable victory and get back into the winners’ column.

Bills by 12
5:00am Minnesota Vikings vs. Kansas City Chiefs @ Arrowhead Stadium
This game is currently off-the-board and that’s due to the availability of Patrick Mahomes.
If the star QB plays, expect the line to be favoured for the Kansas City Chiefs by around seven points. However, if he’s kept on the sidelines, the Vikings could edge away in betting.
We’re expecting Mahomes to play this week in what could be a pivotal game. The Chiefs are 1-3 at home and they need some momentum going into the middle stages of the season.

Chiefs by 7
5:00am New York Jets vs. Miami Dolphins @ Hard Rock Stadium
This season has gone from bad to worse for the New York Jets, but joining them in the world of pain are the Dolphins.
Both teams have a combined one win from 13 games this season. The Dolphins showed life against the Steelers, but even after leading 14-0, they lost 27-14.
The Jets have all sorts of problems on the field and off the field. That doesn’t bode well for this game and Miami could win at home.
Betting tip: Dolphins +3 @ $1.90 Bet Now
Dolphins by 3
5:00am Chicago Bears vs. Philadelphia Eagles @ Lincoln Financial Field
Expectations were high for the Bears this season, but there’s cause for concern at 3-4.
They unexpectedly lost last week after missing yet another late field goal and it could have buried their season.
Philadelphia got back into winning form last week. It put them at 4-4 on the season and they now have a good platform going forward.
This is always a tough battle but with plenty to play for, the Bears could come out swinging.
Betting tip: Bears +5 @ $1.90 Bet Now
Bears by 2
5:00am Indianapolis Colts vs. Pittsburgh Steelers @ Heinz Field
The Steelers look poised to make a good run but they struggled to put away the Miami Dolphins last week.
On the other hand, the Colts have been solid this season at 5-2 and they’re the more reliable team.
They don’t have the superstars that some other teams have, but they play well as a team. They’re on the road here but they have a winning away record this season.
Betting tip: Colts 1.5 @ $1.90 Bet Now
Colts by 7
5:00am Tennessee Titans vs. Carolina Panthers @ Bank of America Stadium
This is an important game for both teams and the winner could come out the other side.
Carolina are 4-3 after losing last week and they’re sticking with Kyle Allen until Cam Newton is fully fit.
Tennessee has had quarterback problems all season, but they’re still hanging in there at 4-4.
Tough game to call but home-ground advantage goes to Carolina.
Betting tip: Panthers –3.5 @ $1.90 Bet Now
Panthers by 10
8:05am Detroit Lions vs. Oakland Raiders @ RingCentral Coliseum
Expect a physical game as the Lions come into enemy territory and take on the Raiders.
The Lions are keeping within touching distance in their division but a loss to the Raiders would cause a big dent in their chances.
Oakland have been playing well without being amazing. They are 3-4 but they have a positive record at home and they should play well this week.

Raiders by 6
8:05am Tampa Bay Buccaneers vs. Seattle Seahawks @ CenturyLink Field
Seattle should be too good for the Buccaneers here and we’re a little surprised at the line.
Bookmakers have the Seahawks as the –6 favourites, but we were expecting a double-digit line.
At 6-2 on the season, there is no reason why Seattle shouldn’t put up a big number on the Buccs.

8:25am Cleveland Browns vs. Denver Broncos @ Empower Field
It shouldn’t come as a surprise to see the Cleveland Browns struggling. There was too much hype and they’re not living up to it.
Luckily for the Browns, they play a 2-6 Broncos team which will likely be without starting QB Joe Flacco.
Bookies have the line set at Browns –3.5 and although they’re hard to trust this season, they should be tough to beat in this situation.

Browns by 10
8:25am Green Bay Packers vs. LA Chargers @ Dignity Health Sports Park
We keep expecting the Packers to get tired before their bye week, but it hasn’t happened yet.
They are rolling at 7-1 and they have been beating very good teams. That bodes well for this week as they’re not playing a good team.
The Chargers have been poor this season and we can’t see them improving enough to beat the firing Packers.
Betting tip: Packers –3.5 @ $1.90 Bet Now
Packers by 7
12:20pm New England Patriots vs. Baltimore Ravens @ M&T Bank Stadium
Is there any way to stop the Patriots this season? They look as good as ever at 8-0 and we could see another undefeated regular season at this rate.
Standing in their way this week are the fresh Ravens, which are coming off a much-needed bye week.
At 5-2, the Ravens are in a good position and Lamar Jackson has come of age this season.
Both teams are very good, but the line of Pats –3 is too good to pass up.
Betting tip: Patriots -3 @ $1.90 Bet Now
Patriots by 7
12:15pm Dallas Cowboys vs. New York Giants @ MetLife Stadium
It’s not easy to trust either team this year so the Tuesday afternoon game could be tough to predict.
Dallas has looked the better side but Saquon Barkley is back for the Giants and is already having an impact.
This could be closer than expected, so we’re happy to take the points on offer.
Betting tip: Giants +7.5 @ $1.90 Bet Now
