NFL Week 9 odds are out and I have a trio of expert NFL picks you can cash in on by the end of the week.

NFL Week 9 Expert Picks

Oakland Raiders at San Francisco 49ers
When: Thursday, Nov. 1 at 8:20 pm ET
Where: Levi’s Stadium, Santa Clara, CA
TV: FOX/NFL
Odds: San Francisco -3

Analysis: Two of the worst teams in the NFL battle it out on Thursday, Nov. 1 when Oakland heads across the bridge to take on the San Francisco 49ers. The 49ers are so bad that they allowed the worst offensive team in the NFL, the Arizona Cardinals, to score 15 points in the fourth quarter for a an 18-15 AZ win.

Oakland’s not much better. The Indianapolis Colts pummeled the Raiders 42-28 in an embarrassing Oakland home loss. Sounds crazy, but the Raiders might be worse than the 49ers. Oakland can’t stop any team’s rushing attack while San Francisco’s defense can at least play okay in spots.

More importantly, SF won’t quit in this game while the Raiders quit about a month ago.

Pick: San Francisco 49ers

Kansas City Chiefs at Cleveland Browns
When: Sunday, Nov. 4 at 1:00 pm ET
Where: FirstEnergy Stadium, Cleveland, OH
TV: CBS
Odds: Kansas City -8

Analysis: The spreads awfully high, but Kansas City’s defense has come around. The Chiefs had given up way more points earlier in the season. It’s because KC’s gotten better at pressuring quarterbacks and stopping teams from rushing all over them.

Because KC figures to light up the scoreboard, Cleveland quarterback Baker Mayfield has no choice but to throw. When Baker throws, good things can happen. Bad things can happen too. More good thing than bad things could happen and the Browns still won’t cover.

Pick: Kansas City Chiefs

Tennessee Titans at Dallas Cowboys
When: Monday, Nov. 5 at 8:15 pm ET
Where: AT&T Stadium, Arlington, TX
TV: ESPN
Odds: Dallas -4.5

Analysis: The Titans have a good enough defense to keep the Cowboys from having too much success on the ground. Dallas made a trade for wide receiver Amari Cooper. Cooper should help the Boys spread the field some.

If Cooper can get loose, that will force the Titans to stop running back Ezekiel Elliott with their front seven. Things could come together nicely for the Cowboys. They’ll win and cover.

Pick: Dallas Cowboys
