NFL Office Pool Picks Week 9 with Expert Analysis and ATS Predictions
Once again, I would like to take a second to apologize for the dismal showing we had in Week 8. We could count the number of wins I had on one hand, and that is simply not acceptable. The good thing about the NFL is that it’s a long season, and so we learn from our mistakes, dust off the bad weeks and keep moving forward in hopes of mastering our craft. Let’s have a great and profitable Week 9.

Week 9 Picks Against the Spread
Indianapolis Colts -10.5 over New York Jets: I hate laying double-digit points in the NFL, but this is a good spot to do so. The Colts are playing well, and the Jets are coming off a crazy win. I see a letdown for the 2-5 Jets on the road, and the Colts desperately need this game to keep pace with the Titans. Lay the big number.
Buffalo Bills -14.5 over Jacksonville Jaguars: Again, I hate laying double-digit points, but the Bills are miles better than the Jaguars. The Bills should hang 40 on them and cover this spread with ease.
Miami Dolphins -6.5 over Houston Texans: I want no part of betting this game with real money, but for the sake of this article I’ll lay the points with the Dolphins. They have more talent and should be able to handle a weak Texans squad.
Dallas Cowboys -10 over Denver Broncos: Double. Digit. Points. However, the Cowboys looked good on Sunday against the Vikings. And with the Broncos in a fire sale mode, the Cowboys should be able to put up a big score in this one and cover with ease.
Cleveland Browns +3 over Cincinnati Bengals: Just when we start to believe in the Bengals, they go and do something silly like lose to the Jets. I think the Browns are due for a solid game, and I think it comes this week. Mayfield should have no issues picking apart the Cincinnati defense, and I see them scoring 30+ in a win.
Baltimore Ravens -5.5 over Minnesota Vikings: Never trust the Vikings. No matter who they play. The Ravens are rested and will be able to run the ball down the Vikings’ throats. This should be a very simple and easy cover for the better team.
New York Giants +3 over Las Vegas Raiders: The Raiders are 5-2 and in first place in the AFC West. I’m waiting for it to all come crashing down, and I think it happens this week against the Giants. The Raiders are off a bye and must travel for a 10 a.m. PST start. I say they sleepwalk through the majority of the game and lose outright.
New Orleans Saints -6 over Atlanta Falcons: I thought the Falcons were in a good spot last week to beat a bad Carolina team. I was wrong. The Falcons stunk up the joint, while the Saints beat the defending Super Bowl champs. Backup quarterback or not, the Saints can catch the Bucs for top spot in the division with a win here, and that’s motivation enough to win big.
Carolina Panthers +4 over New England Patriots: I’m not buying what the Patriots are selling. They beat a Chargers team that was flat off of their bye, and now they have to play their second road game in a row back across the country vs a Carolina team that is off a win and that has a little momentum.
Los Angeles Chargers -1.5 over Philadelphia Eagles: As I mentioned above, the Chargers were flat vs the Patriots, and I don’t see that happening again this week. The Eagles beat the Lions. However, let’s be real, the Lions suck. The Chargers offense should pick apart a weak Philly defense, and the Chargers will get right back in the win column this week.
San Francisco 49ers PK over Arizona Cardinals: The Cardinals looked disjointed last week against the Packers, and I expect that to carry over here in a crucial division showdown. The Niners are coming off a good win and with some momentum in their back pocket. And playing at home, I say they get the job done.
Kansas City Chiefs -7.5 over Green Bay Packers: When news broke that Aaron Rodgers was out due to COVID, I was pretty upset. I thought we were getting the Packers at a great price of small underdogs, but now we have to lay the points with the Chiefs as the Packers simply have no QB on the roster that will be able to keep up with the Chiefs’ offense.
Los Angeles Rams -7.5 over Tennessee Titans: The Titans lost their best player in Derrick Henry and now have to face an elite defense on the road. That doesn’t bode well for them. The Rams have been humming along, and I expect them to bog down the Titans in the pass game and win this by 10+.
Pittsburgh Steelers -6.5 over Chicago Bears: Just when I thought the Steelers were down and out, the defense steps up in a big way and they get a win vs the Browns. Now they host a prime-time game with some momentum on their side and face a bad Bears team starting a rookie quarterback. Steelers by seven or more.
