I am back for another season and taking on the oddsmakers and helping you try to take down whatever type of football pool you’re in. Here are my Office Pool Picks for Week 9.
14 Browns vs. ARI
13 Saints vs. CHI
12 Packers vs. LAR
11 Chargers at NYJ
10 Steelers vs. TEN
9 Falcons vs. MIN
8 Ravens vs. SEA
7 Raiders vs. NYG
6 Colts at CAR
5 Texans vs. TB
4 Patriots vs. WAS
3 Bengals vs. BUF
2 Eagles vs. DAL
1 Chiefs vs. MIA
Season Record: 71-51-0
Get ready for this week’s NFL action with Dan Clasgens & James Adams…
Each week I will pick two games, my “Play it Safe” selection as well as my “Out on a Limb” pick:
Play It Safe (7-1): Browns vs. ARI
Despite the disappointments at quarterback, the Browns’ D has remained elite and kept Cleveland in the playoff race in the AFC. Now they get the Cardinals, who have their own questions at quarterback. Look for the Dawg Pound to be barking loudly in this one.
Out on a Limb (5-3): Packers vs. LAR
The Packers are a mess right now and appear to be on their way to nowhere. However, with Matthew Stafford likely out for this one it will be a tall task for the Rams to exit Lambeau Field with a victory.
THURSDAY NIGHT SPECIALS
Look for my “Against the Spread” plays in a separate article that will run each Saturday this season. Here I will look at my Thursday night betting recommendation.
$100 Under 37 (DraftKings -110)
Season total: +$190 (5-3 on season)
These two teams play a physical style of football and on the short week I am expecting this to be a fairly low-scoring affair. Let’s ride the under again here.
Same Game Parlay Prop Bet (DraftKings)
$20 (+500 DraftKings)
Season total: (-$140)
- Will Levis Over 10.5 RuYd
- Derrick Henry 60+ RuYd
- DeAndre Hopkins Over 53.5 ReYd
- George Pickens 40+ ReYd
