This will be a sad weekend for those who like to back underdogs since lines for Week 9 of the 2018 NFL Season are looking pretty tight. However, as long as bottom-feeders exist there will always be a few decent odds to hop on, but nothing like previous weeks. The good news is the 4 largest spreads have Underdogs that could easily jump up and bite favorites… if they get a few breaks.
First, we have someone who will probably be in every one of these guides until next season: Buffalo Bills. They have constantly been given tons of points by oddsmakers across the country and this week is no different. They’re at home to Chicago and getting a whopping 10 points for showing up. The Bears have certainly improved this year but getting 10 on the road in front of an always-raucous home crowd in Upstate New York? Look at Buffalo +10 as they’re sure to keep it close.
Next is an interesting number for Kansas City as they go into Cleveland to take on the “new and improved” Browns. Current odds at most places is K.C. -9, but Cleveland just fired their coach and might be hitting the gridiron on Sunday out to prove a thing or two. The Chiefs should easily win but it’s impossible to concretely predict National Football League results and the Browns covering 9 wouldn’t even be in the “Top 10 Craziest Things We’ve Seen This Year” so bet accordingly. Those backing the favorite aught to do it at Intertops Sportsbook to get -8.5, gifting an extra half point (earlier in the week you could have actually got -8.)
The last two games with larger spreads should be a lot closer than the aforementioned. One’s the always-dangerous Tampa Bay Buccaneers in a divisional showdown in Carolina and many will remember “Fitzmagic” beating the Saints and Eagles in Weeks 1 and 2, destroying numerous Survivor Pools in the process. BetOnline has Bucs as 6½ point Dogs but wager at MyBookie to get it at 7 if you think they’re going to pull another rabbit out of their hat this Sunday.
Sadly, you won’t be able to get an extra half point for Monday Night Football as Dallas hosts Tennesse in Amare Cooper’s debut, since every single site currently has Cowboys -6.5. It could be a lot closer than experts think and a Titans outright win wouldn’t be shocking at all. Of course, we don’t know which Marcus Mariota is going to show up.
Here are all current numbers for NFL gambling at BetOnline Casino who offer lines on everything from ice hockey to Japanese basketball and anything in between.
