THE SPORTS DOCTOR'S WEEK 9 NFL PICKS FOR 4 SEASONS
Denver Broncos (3-4) at Philadelphia Eagles (7-1)
Line: Eagles by 8
Carson Wentz is the real deal, and Philly’s defense has been fantastic, especially against the run. Denver has no chance. Take the Eagles to win and cover.
Los Angeles Rams (5-2) at New York Giants (1-6)
Line: Rams by 3.5
Both teams will be well rested coming off their bye weeks. The Giants defense is awful, and they haven’t done anything to fix it. Take the Rams to win and cover.
Tampa Bay Buccaneers (2-5) at New Orleans Saints (5-2)
Line: Saints by 7
New Orleans have won five straight, and it’s because of the defense. Coupled with the fact they are in the Dome, this should be easy. Take the Saints to win and cover.
Cincinnati Bengals (3-4) at Jacksonville Jaguars (4-3)
Line: Jaguars by 4.5
Both teams are good on defense, which should make this a low-scoring game. Jacksonville will be well rested coming off the bye and should take this one at home. Take the Jaguars to win and cover.
Line: Panthers by 1
The Panthers get the Falcons road weary, playing a third straight road game, but Carolina has had trouble scoring. I think Atlanta is ready to make statement before next week’s game against Dallas. Take the Falcons in an upset.
Indianapolis Colts (2-6) at Houston Texans (4-3)
Line: Texans by 12.5
The Colts are next-to-last in overall defense, allowing 407 yards per game. Deshaun Watson will throw for at least that. Take the Texans to win and cover.
Baltimore Ravens (4-4) at Tennessee Titans (4-3)
Line: Titans by 4.5
With no Joe Flacco and being on the road, the Ravens have no chance. Take the Titans to win and cover.
Arizona Cardinals (3-4) at San Francisco 49ers (0-8)
Line: Cardinals by 2
Even without Carson Palmer, Arizona should be able to send the 49ers to 0-9. Take the Cardinals to win and cover.
Washington Redskins (3-4) at Seattle Seahawks (5-2)
Line: Seahawks by 7
The Redskins are banged up and have to travel across the country to play against a Seattle team that’s really starting to roll. Take the Seahawks to win and cover.
Kansas City Chiefs (5-2) at Dallas Cowboys (4-3)
The Chiefs are playing on a short week on the road and have trouble against the run. Ezekiel Elliott will likely be out, but Dallas has a lot of other weapons. Take the Cowboys to win
Oakland Raiders (3-5) at Miami Dolphins (4-3)
Line: Raiders by 3
Miami was horrible against Baltimore, and will have Jay Cutler back. The Raiders haven’t been home all week, choosing to stay in the east to prepare, but they still are the leagues biggest disappointment this season. Take the Dolphins in an upset.
Detroit Lions (3-4) at Green Bay Packers (4-3)
Line: Lions by 2..5
The Lions have dropped four out of their last five and face a Packers team who are well rested and given Brett Hundley some time to figure out the playbook. Take the Packers in an upset.
