Picks - NFL Week 9
*Check back later in the week for our Week 9 NFL Picks!*
GAME: HOU -1.5 @ JAX (O/U 46.5)
This game is in London, which may not seem like much, but this is essentially a home game for the Jacksonville Jaguars. They are the only NFL team that plays there every year. Minshew has come back to Earth a little bit, but Watson is not the same quarterback when facing a dominant pass rush. The Jacksonville Jaguars are one of the best teams in the NFL at pressuring the quarterback.
2 Units: JAX +1.5 (DraftKings -110)
DAL -7 @ NYG (O/U 48)
This line is not factoring in that the Giants have not been with their full compliment of offensive weapons. The Giants will finally have Barkley, Shepard, Engram, and Daniel Jones playing in the same game. The Cowboys have Amari Cooper healthy. Their offensive output is significantly improved with him inserted into the lineup.
2 Units: Over 48 (PointsBet -110)
SAC +1 @ NYK (O/U216)
The Knicks and Kings combined defense lets up 222 points per game. Both teams offenses combine for 200 points per game. Split the difference and you are at 211 total. However, this does not factor in that Frank Nitlikina has been inserted in the starting lineup for the Knicks. His defense prowess let the charge in holding the Celtics to just 104 points last game. However, he does not move the needle offensively. If anything, he is a liability.
2 Units: Under 216 (PointsBet -105)
