We’re back for Week 9 of the 2019 NFL season! By the time this weekend of football concludes, all 32 teams will have reached the halfway point of their regular season schedule.
Tonight, we get an intriguing divisional matchup on Thursday Night Football. The Arizona Cardinals host the San Francisco 49ers and the NFC West usually brings intriguing short week matchups. The 49ers are undefeated through Week 8 and coming off a thumping of the Carolina Panthers. The Cardinals are 3-4-1 and just had a three-game win streak snapped by the returning Drew Brees.
I’m back once again with my weekly NFL picks. For Thursday I put together a complete list of straight up picks, and Sunday morning I’ll have my picks against the spread given how much can change between now and then. I’ll have a TNF pick against the spread later this morning.
We get the undefeated 49ers opening the week and then the undefeated New England Patriots closing out Sunday. The 49ers are a ten-point favorite Thursday, while the Patriots are a three-point road favorite against Baltimore. The latter could be one of the better matchups of the year.
On the other end of things, the Dolphins and Bengals look to snap their winless starts to the season — or keep them going depending on their long-term season goals! The Dolphins host the Jets and are a field goal underdog, while the Bengals are on bye. This really all leads to Bengals vs. Dolphins in Week 16.
If you’re in a pick ‘em contest, I’ve put together my complete list of Week 8 straight up picks. You can check out SB Nation’s full list of experts picking here, where I’m 72-49 heading into this week. I’ll have my full list of picks against the spread on Sunday. I’m taking the 49ers -10 at DraftKings Sportsbook tonight on TNF, and will have a full write up later this morning.
