Week 9 NFL Picks from NFL Predictor

BY NFL Predictor Staff

It has been tough to get some traction in the NFL but we are looking forward to the second half of the season as we look to move away from the Mendoza line. Last week we went 1-2 with the lone win being on the Indianapolis Colts who were straight up winners over the undefeated Broncos as 5 point underdogs.  Our pick on the Tampa Bay Bucs went up in smoke as it remains very difficult to figure out what the NY Giants will do from one week to the next.  Our other loss came at the hands of the Dallas Cowboys as they can’t buy a win right now and ended up losing to the Philadelphia Eagles.  Have no fear we are usually strong in the 2nd half of the NFL season

NFL Predictions Records: 13-13-2

ST. LOUIS (-7) over Chicago (Get the latest odds from 5 Dimes Sportsbook)

The Rams are back home off of a loss to the Minnesota Vikings.  The Rams are a pretty good all around football team accept at the quarterback position which has been the case for a couple of years now.  Nevertheless,  we think they can get by this Chicago team at home without Nick Foles resembling a NFL QB.  Chicago just played on Monday Night,  on the road and must not travel again on short rest.  Expecting the Bears to win back to back road games on short rest is like expecting the Bravo channel to show a MMA fight.  Take the Rams.

OAKLAND (-3) over Minnesota (Get the latest odds from 5 Dimes Sportsbook)

Minnesota looked pretty happy after their win in a hard fought game vs. the St. Louis Rams last week.  Now they are heading out on the road all the way to California to face a Raiders team off of a loss.  This is a tough Oakland team who showed their worth against the Steelers on the road last week.  Oakland is being sold short by this line in our opinion.  We think Oakland will be highly motivated and they are getting solid play out of their quarterback, running back and rookie receiver.  Heck,  “sorry ass” Crabtree is even putting forth some solid play.  Look for Minnesota to be a bit hung over after the win and to be surprised by a better than advertised 4-4 Oakland team.

DENVER (-5.5) over Kansas City (Get the latest odds from 5 Dimes Sportsbook)

If Denver is going to lose back to back games,  we hardly think it would be with that second game being at home against a divisional opponent that they already beat on the road this year.  Kansas City comes in rested after a 45-10 blowout over the Lions.  That blowout probably blew their heads up but the truth of the matter is that the Chiefs are not that good.  Denver came to Kansas City and beat them earlier this year without really playing that great of a game.  A good team like Denver is bound to be focused off of the loss and playing in front of their home crowd,  we really can’t see Denver losing here.
