Week 9 NFL Lock PicksJosh Bailey
We are past the halfway mark in the 2016 NFL season and you have come to the right place if you need a trio of NFL sports betting bankroll boosting Week 9 NFL lock picks.
Week 9 NFL Lock Picks
My Week 9 NFL lock picks may seem overly obvious, but as they say Any Given Sunday. Will Miami continue winning as a home favorite over the New York Jets? How will New Orleans handle traveling out West to take on San Francisco as a road favorite? Is Green Bay truly 7 points better than Indianapolis?
New York Jets at Miami
When: Sunday, Nov. 6 at 1:00 pm ET
Where: Hard Rock Stadium, Miami, FL
Odds: Miami -4
Analysis: The Jets made a furious comeback to beat Cleveland 31 to 28 in Week 8. Not only did the Jets win the game, but they also covered the spread. It was the second straight impressive performance by NYJ, who beat Baltimore 24 to 16 at home in Week 7.
Can the Jets keep it going? I don’t think so. Miami has won 2 games in a row as well. But while the Jets have beaten Baltimore and Cleveland, Miami has trounced Pittsburgh and Buffalo. The Dolphins go into this battle off a bye week.
That should have helped QB Ryan Tannehill grasp even more of Adam Gases’ offense. I like Miami to win this game by at least a TD.
Week 9 NFL Lock Pick: Miami
New Orleans at San Francisco
When: Sunday, Nov. 6 at 4:05 pm ET
Where: Levi’s Stadium, Santa Clara, CA
Odds: New Orleans -3
Analysis: San Francisco battles New Orleans after a bye week. The bye most likely helped San Francisco who needed a rest after 6 straight losses. The problem for San Francisco is that to beat the Saints, you must outscore them.
What it means is that your offense must go mano y mano with the unbelievable Drew Brees. Brees has played at an MVP caliber level this season. He should destroy a San Francisco defense that’s allowing 407.6 total yards per game.
San Francisco only scores 20.6 points per while New Orleans averages 28.7 per. The Saints should roll in this match up on Nov. 6.
Week 9 NFL Lock Pick: New Orleans
Indianapolis at Green Bay
When: Sunday, Nov. 6 at 4:25 pm ET
Where: Lambeau Field, Green Bay, WI
Odds: Green Bay -7
Analysis: I’m not a huge fan of either one of these teams. Neither defense is good enough to stop the other team’s offense. What am I fan of in this matchup is Green Bay taking on Indianapolis at home. The trends are all over the Packers in this one.
Forget about Green Bay being 2-1-1 ATS at Lambeau this season. The push was against the New York Giants. The loss was to the Dallas Cowboys. Historically, Green Bay rolls at home. The fact that they scored 32 points on the road versus Atlanta in Week 8 implies that they should have no trouble taking it to Indianapolis’s defense in Week 9.
The Colts allow 28.8 points on average per game. Green Bay could get close to 40 in this match up.
