The week 9 picks ATS are here! Last week we went 2-2 to push our total on the year to 17-10. This week I have a good feeling about some of these matchups and I'm really looking forward to this sunday. Without further ado… Here are my week 9 picks ATS.
The Bengals are coming off of a devastating loss to the Jets and the Browns are also coming off of a loss to the Steelers. This is a divisional game so that means that most likely it won't be a blowout on either side. The Browns Pro Bowl right tackle will be out this game and that should drastically affect their run game. If the Browns can't run the ball it will be put on Mayfields shoulders to win the game. Mayfields shoulder is injured so all puns intended. I don't see this Browns offense being enough to win this game on an injured QB and somewhat broken offense. Look for the Bengals to cover this spread come sunday.
Mac Jones and the patriots offense are really starting to put it together. Scoring more than 25 in four straight games is one thing but their defense has given up almost 25 a game in that span as well. Good thing the Panthers are an absolute mess. The Panthers have lost all mojo on offense and are going against one of the best defensive coaches of all time. The Patriots will be ready for the Panthers and I see them winning by a touchdown or more.
The Eagles are coming off a huge win in Detroit but these Chargers are no Detroit Lions… Justin Herbert has been in a slump the past two games but I think he gets out of it in this one. The Eagles allow the highest completion percentage in the league and their defensive star was on the trading block this week. Those rumours can make a team feel like the front office doesn't believe in them enough to make the playoffs. I don't believe in the Eagles either. I think the Chargers have a great bounce back game and take this one by more than three.
