NFL Week 9 Odds (ATS, ML, O/U)

Dez Bryant figures that if the line can't give Romo the time to throw to him, he might as well throw it to himself.

Week Nine is upon us, and we get one extra game on the schedule as there are only four teams on a bye this week. Outside of the requisite intrigue over the Cowboys matchup, the NFC highlight of the early games would be Tampa Bay visiting New Orleans. The NFC South rivals faced off just three weeks ago in Tampa, a 26-20 Buccaneer victory placed squarely at the feet of Saints QB Drew Brees. Brees passed for almost 400 yards, but three interceptions including one in the end zone on fourth down while trying to win the game.The oddsmakers like the Saints at home though, as all three of their losses have occurred on the road (@Green Bay, @Tampa and last week @St. Louis). Tampa is getting LeGarrette Blount back, so it will be interesting to see if they can wrestle first place in the division away while on the road.  Tampa has won 3 of the last four matchups between the teams.

The AFC early game to watch is the Jets at the Bills. New York has won five of the last six meetings, but they have yet to secure a victory on the road in 2011. Meanwhile, the surprising Bills sit at 5-2 and atop the AFC East and are a pretty 4-0 at home if you include last weeks drubbing of the Redskins in Toronto.

The last half of the weekend schedule is chock-full of interesting matchups. Giants-Patriots and Packers-Chargers should have people wearing out the last channel button on their remote controls. In the Sunday night matchup, the Steelers try to exact revenge for the week one beating they took at the hands of the Ravens. Monday night sees Chicago invade Philadelphia.

Week Eight was another week of par for my picks, here's a look at the results.

Week 8 9-4 6-7 6-7
