NFL 2017 Week 9 Picks
The NFL continues this weekend, with week nine marking the home stretch of the season. We have three best bets, all targeting the total points, with singles recommended, together with a 6/1 treble at bet365.
Atlanta Falcons @ Carolina Panthers - Over 42.0 Points
The outcome of this game will go a long way in determing the outcome of the NFC South, with both teams looking to improve their winning records to keep the pressure on division leaders, the New Orleans Saints, whilst improving their chances of a wildcard berth.
Carolina is 5-3, but struggling to find any sort of consistency week-to-week. Impressive wins this season have been nullified by below-par efforts, namely due to the performance of Panthers, QB, Cam Newton. If they put their best foot forward on Sunday, they are more than capable of scoring more than 27 points, which they have done in two of their five wins.
In a similar vein, Atlanta is struggling to find the kind of form that saw them reach Superbowl, last season, boasting a 4-3 record after seven games. However, they still retain the core of 2016's highest scoring offense in the league and have shown flashes of finding that form again.
The two meetings between these two teams 12 months ago resulted in 81 and 49 points being scored and it would be no surprise if they both brought their A-game in a must win clash to go over the projected 42 point total.
Washington Redskins @ Seattle Seahawks - Over 45.0 Points
The last two Seattle Seahawks home games have seen seen 64 and 79 points scored, respectively, with the home side acocunting for 46 and 41 point, on those occasions. Add to this the fact that the Washington Redskins' last four games have all gone over the total points, together with all three road games, this season and the call is that this game should breeze past 45 points.
The Redskins season has hit the buffers in recent weeks with just one win in four, making this a must win game, whilst the 5-2 Seahawks continue their march towards the playoffs without any sort of run game, so expect lots more passing and lots more points in this one.
Denver Broncos @ Washington Redskins - Under 43.0 Points
The Philadelphia Eagles are the ebst team in the NFL according to their 6-1 record and they should have no problem extending that against a Denver side that is void of ideas on offense, to the point that the Broncos have called a change at quarterback, ahead of this game. Sadly fot Denver fans, the incoming Brock Osweiler isn't an upgrade on the departing Trevor Siemian.
As such, don't expect the visitors to pull up any trees on offense. Their last five games have seen them score 19; 0; 10; 16; 16 and againsta Philadelphia team that hasn't given up more than 24 points to an opponent, it could be a long afternoon. However, Denver does boast one of the NFL's better defenses and whilst the Eagles will win, it shouldn't be a landslide, keeping the game under the projected 43 points.
