NFL Week 9 opening odds

Week 9 best odds and betting breakdown

Philadelphia Eagles at Houston Texans

The Eagles continue to soar, coasting to a 35-13 win over the in-state rival Steelers to move to 7-0 on the season. The Eagles are large favorites again in Week 8, this time on the road in Houston. As of now, Philadelphia doesn’t play a team with a winning record again until Week 13 (Tennessee.)

The Texans (1-5-1) have a short week to prepare for the Eagles. Houston is mismatched all over the field. According to oddsmakers, they have approximately a 15% chance of ending Philadelphia’s undefeated season.

Los Angeles Chargers at Atlanta Falcons

The Atlanta Falcons are in first place in the NFC South after winning a back-and-forth barnburner over the Panthers in Week 8. Oddsmakers aren’t believers, opening Atlanta as a home underdog to the Los Angeles Chargers in Week 9.

The Chargers come off the bye with several key players still unavailable to due extended injuries (J.C. Jackson, Mike Williams, Joey Bosa.) Wide receiver Keenan Allen could return after leaving the Week 6 game.

Miami Dolphins at Chicago Bears

The Dolphins are road favorites against an NFC North team for the second straight week. Tua Tagovailoa padded his stats in Week 8 against the Lions, throwing for 382 yards and three touchdowns. Most of the yardage went to Jaylen Waddle and Tyreek Hill, who now own the record for most receiving yards by two teammates through eight games in a season (1,688.)

Do the Bears have enough talent to contain the Dolphins duo? The Bears surrendered 442 yards of offense to the Cowboys in their Week 8 loss. Chicago is getting solid play recently out of Justin Fields despite an inability to provide him with protection in the pocket. Chicago ranks among the best in the league on the ground, but that plays right into the Dolphins’ defensive strength.

Carolina Panthers at Cincinnati Bengals

The Panthers might have a QB controversy. While they lost to the Falcons in overtime in Week 8, P.J. Walker did everything in his power to give his team opportunities, throwing for 317 yards on 8.8 yards per attempt. What does Carolina do when Baker Mayfield and Sam Darnold are ready to return? This is a situation worth watching.

The Panthers head to Cincinnati as huge underdogs in Week 9. The Bengals play the Browns in Monday Night Football in Week 8. Expect Ja’Marr Chase to be sidelined for both games.

Green Bay Packers at Detroit Lions

In Week 8, the Lions found the offense that eluded them for more than a month. But the defense yielded 31 points to the Dolphins, proving too much to overcome. Detroit has lost five in a row. Next up is a trip to Green Bay, where the Packers are also losers of several straight games.

Indianapolis Colts at New England Patriots

One week after an embarrassing loss in primetime to Chicago, the Patriots won a pivotal AFC East matchup against the New York Jets to bring their record to 4-4 on the season. Mac Jones appears to be locked back into the starting gig at quarterback.

The Sam Ehlinger era is off to a rocky start for the Colts. The rookie QB, who replaced injured Matt Ryan under center, threw for 201 yards in a 17-16 loss to the Commanders in Week 8. Making matters worse, Jonathan Taylor left the Week 8 game early with an ankle injury. He returned in the second half but was ineffective.

Buffalo Bills at New York Jets

At 5-3, the Jets are still in the thick of the AFC playoff race. But they’re not getting playoff-caliber play from Zach Wilson, who tossed three interceptions and completed fewer than half of his attempts in the loss to New England in Week 8. Wilson will have his work cut out for him at home in Week 9 against Buffalo, where the Bills are favorites.

Minnesota Vikings at Washington Commanders

The Vikings have won five straight, following an exciting 34-26 victory over Arizona. The defense remains a concern in Minnesota, although they got some excellent play from that unit late in the game to seal the win. Za’Darius Smith had three sacks for the Vikings, bringing his season total to six.

Kirk Cousins next travels to Washington to face his former team for the first time since leaving in 2018. The Commanders have a three-game win streak of their own going. QB Taylor Heinicke is 2-0 as a starter this season.

Las Vegas Raiders at Jacksonville Jaguars

Two teams in the doldrums face off in Jacksonville. The Jaguars travel home from London where they lost another close game, this time to Russell Wilson and the Broncos. Jacksonville has lost five straight, with each loss coming by a single possession (eight or fewer points.)

The Raiders failed to score a single point in New Orleans in Week 8, but Davante Adams came into the game at less than 100 percent. Derek Carr was sacked three times and threw an interception before being pulled in the fourth quarter. He will make the start in Jacksonville as a road favorite.

Seattle Seahawks at Arizona Cardinals

The highest total of Week 9 belongs to the Seahawks/Cardinals game. Kyler Murray is finally finding rapport with his receivers, none more than DeAndre Hopkins. The All-Pro receiver has 22 receptions on 26 targets in two games since returning from a suspension, and Arizona has scored a total of 68 points in those contests.

The Seahawks have three straight and own the top spot in the NFC West. Still, oddsmakers favor the Cardinals in this matchup, opening Arizona as a three-point favorite.

Los Angeles Rams at Tampa Bay Buccaneers

After opening the season as the betting favorites to win the NFC, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers are now just to win their own division. Tampa Bay fell out of first place in the NFC South with a loss to the Ravens on Thursday Night Football and faces another tough test against the Rams in Week 8. Can Tom Brady right the ship?

The Rams have also hit rock-bottom after getting blown out by the 49ers in Week 8. The defending champs were held to just 4 yards per play while allowing 7.1. Cooper Kupp left the game late with an ankle injury, which will be worth watching this week.

Tennessee Titans at Kansas City Chiefs

Rookie QB Malik Willis was lackluster in his first start, but the Titans rode Derrick Henry to a 17-10 victory over the Texans to help extend their lead in the AFC South. Ryan Tannehill could return in Week 9 to face the Chiefs, but if he’s not ready to go, expect to see Willis again. Oddsmakers will surely be paying close attention to reports out of Tennessee this week around Tannehill.

The Chiefs, meanwhile, come off the bye as sizable favorites at home on Sunday Night Football.

Baltimore Ravens at New Orleans Saints

The Ravens get extra rest to prepare for the Saints after defeating the Bucs on Thursday Night Football in Week 8. That means extra time for offensive weapons like Mark Andrews, Rashod Bateman and Gus Edwards to get healthier. All three left the game with injuries against Tampa Bay.

The Saints have their own injury issues, forced to play with backups at several key positions for weeks. But the next-man-up philosophy was successful in a 24-0 victory against the Raiders in Week 8. New Orleans could get several starters back in Week 9.
