Bet My NFL Week 9 Upset Picks

I never imagined that Washington behind the leadership of Colt McCoy would be Tony Romo, DeMarco Murray, Dez Bryant and the high flying Dallas Cowboys, but they did on primetime under the Monday Night Football lights.

If you are looking for a couple of similar NFL betting upset picks for week 9 then look no further.

Bet My NFL Week 9 Upset Picks

Tampa Bay Buccaneers at Cleveland Browns
When:  Sunday, Nov.2 at 1:00 pm ET
Betting Line:  Cleveland -6.5

Analysis: Cleveland has turned into a seriously good football team. Since their bye week, the Browns have won 3 out of 4. The lone loss was a crazy road upset at the hands of Jacksonville. The Jaguars beat Cleveland 24 to 6 in that game.

If Cleveland had done what they were supposed to do in that contest they’d be 4 and 0 straight up since their bye week and 2-1-1 against the spread. The Browns beat Oakland 23 to 13 in Week 8 for a 10 point victory as a -6.5 point home favorite.  They’ll be looking to do the same thing to Tampa Bay, but the guess here is that Tampa might do just enough to upset the Browns straight up in this game.

The Buccaneers couldn’t hang on for a win against Minnesota in Week 8. They ended up losing 19 to 13 in overtime even though they had the Vikings on the ropes in the fourth quarter. Cleveland is better than Tampa Bay but the Buccaneers were good enough to upset Pittsburgh 27 to 24 on the road a few weeks ago and the Bucs lone two covers this season have been in road games.

Maybe, Cleveland takes Tampa Bay lightly and the Bucs find a way to beat the Browns on their own home turf as a big time dog? That’s the hope here, anyhow.

Pick: Tampa Bay Buccaneers

Philadelphia Eagles at Houston Texans
When:  Sunday, Nov.2 at 1:00 pm ET
Betting Line:  Philadelphia -2

Analysis: Philadelphia continues to have one of the top offenses in all of football, but it’ defense continues to let it down. The Eagles had a lead over Arizona until the D gave up a 75 yards touchdown strike from Carson Palmer to Josh Brown that sealed it for the Cardinals. Houston won’t need to do as much against Philadelphia this Sunday. The Texans have a defense that will pressure QB Nick Foles all day. Not only that, but the Texans are allowing only 108 rushing yards per game this season, which means that Foles will have to throw probably more than either he or Coach Chip Kelly wants him to throw in this matchup.

On offense, the Texans’ rushing attack has been spot on. The team is averaging 139 yards per game on the ground. Arian Foster has been unstoppable. He already has 766 rushing yards this season and 9 combined touchdowns. QB Ryan Fitzpatrick will need to play a smart mental game, but if he does, and keeps from fumbling the ball or throwing interceptions, he should be able to complete some big passes against a Philadelphia defense that allows 266.9 passing yards per contest.

Houston has a great shot at upsetting the Philadelphia Eagles as a home dog in Week 9. 

Pick: Houston Texans
