The NFL is heading into Week 9, and we’re coming up on the midway point of the season. With a few big games scheduled, let’s take a look at how we think three games will play out.
Detroit Lions (+4) over Green Bay Packers
The first game we’re going to look at is the Detroit Lions which will face the Green Bay Packers. The Packers have a record of 3-5 and are 1-3 on the road this season. They’ve lost four games in a row, including a recent 27-17 loss to the Buffalo Bills. This team is all out of sorts and we think that’s why they’ll lose today.
The Detroit Lions have a 1-6 record this season and are 1-3 at home. They’re not doing any better than the Packers are but at least they have chemistry. They also have a relatively high-scoring offense, averaging 24.7 points per game. Compared to the Packers at 18.1, the Lions are the better pick at +4.
Arizona Cardinals (-2.5) over Seattle Seahawks
The Arizona Cardinals come into this game as 2.5-point favorites this weekend. After a 34-26 loss to the Minnesota Vikings, they’ll look to get their team back on track. Tonight, however, they’ll face the Seattle Seahawks, who have a 5-3 record. The Seahawks are putting up 26.3 points per game, so it won’t be easy to beat them.
At home this season, the Cardinals have a record of 1-3. To get a win tonight, they’ll need to tighten up on defense instead of allowing 26.3 points per game. Still, the Cardinals have a talented roster and should be able to pull off a win. Since the spread is so small, we’ll take the Cardinals at home at -2.5.
Tennessee Titans (+12) over Kansas City Chiefs
The Tennessee Titans only average 18.9 points per game but they’re still 5-2 this season. Their defense allows 19.7 points each game which is good, especially this weekend. Facing the Kansas City Chiefs offense is a tough task but the Titans are up for it. They have a strong history against the Chiefs and have done well against the spread this season.
The Kansas City Chiefs are 5-2 this season with a 2-1 record at home. On average, the Chiefs are putting up 31.9 points per game but allow 24.6. They’re coming off of a huge 44-23 win over the San Francisco 49ers last week. The only difference we see this time is that Tennessee will control the clock. Because of this, the +12 Tennessee is getting is the better choice.
