If you like making bankroll-boosting straight up upset picks, then you’re in for a treat! I’ve got a trio of upset picks that are sure to please. Now, let’s rock and roll.
Who’s going to get the ‘W’ when the Miami Dolphins host the Oakland Raiders in their Week 9 AFC matchup of teams looking to rebound from pitiful performances this past weekend?
Can the Dak Prescott and the Dallas Cowboys hold it down at home against Alex Smith and the dangerous Kansas City Chiefs?
Are the Jacksonville Jaguars the pick to get past the desperate Cincinnati Bengals in their Week 9 matchup of playoff hopefuls?
Upset Picks NFL Week 9
Oakland Raiders (3-5) at Miami Dolphins (4-3)
When: Sunday, November 5, 2017 at 8:30 PM ET
Where: Hard Rock Stadium, Miami Gardens, Florida
NFL Odds: Oakland -3
Analysis: I know only 23 percent of public bettors like the Dolphins to cover the chalk as home underdogs against Oakland, but I’m among them! Oakland got completely embarrassed in their humbling 34-14 beatdown at Buffalo last weekend so I just don’t have a whole lot of faith in the Raiders coming into this one. I’m also expecting Miami quarterback Matt Moore to have a much better performance than he did in the Fins’ equally pitiful 40-0 shutout loss against Baltimore this past Thursday night. Oakland doesn’t play much defense at all and they’re 0-4 ATS in their last four meeting against the Dolphins.
Week 9 Upset Pick: Miami +3
Kansas City Chiefs (5-2) at Dallas Cowboys (4-3)
When: Sunday, November 5, 2017 at 4:25 PM ET
Where: AT&T Stadium, Arlington, Texas
NFL Odds: Dallas -1
Analysis: While Kansas City has yet to play their Monday Night Week 8 matchup against Denver, I’m going on record right now to say that the Chiefs are going to march into Dallas and walk out with the straight-up win! Kansas City is statistically better than Dallas on both sides of the ball, plus they’ve got the far better head coach in this one. Kansas City is a near-perfect 9-1 ATS in their last 10 road games and a stellar 10-4 ATS in their last 14 games overall. Dallas is 0-4 ATS in their last four games against a team with a winning record and 0-5 ATS in their last 5 home games vs. a team with a winning road record. Get the Chiefs now while they’re 1-point underdogs NFL bettors!
Week 9 Upset Pick: Kansas City +1
Cincinnati Bengals (3-4) at Jacksonville Jaguars (4-3)
When: Sunday, November 5, 2017 at 1:00 PM ET
Where: EverBank Field, Jacksonville, Florida
NFL Odds: Jacksonville -5.5
Analysis: I know Jacksonville has been a bit of a revelation this season and comes into this contest having won two of their last three games, but Cincinnati is completely desperate and has won three of their last four. Not only that, but Andy Dalton, despite his faults, is far better than Blake Bortles will ever be at quarterback and the Bengals have an elite defense that is limiting the opposition to just 19.3 points per game. I smell an outright upset in this one as Bortles tosses a couple of picks everyone! Cincinnati is 4-1 ATS in their last five road games and 3-0-2 ATS in their last five meetings against Jacksonville.
