NFL Week 9 Odds & Opening Lines

Posted: Oct 31, 2022Last updated: Jan 23, 2023

Week 9 is the smallest slate of games in the 2022 NFL season.

A whopping six teams will be on byes during the first weekend of play in November, meaning there will be just 13 games between Thursday and Monday.

Even though it’s a short slate, there is still plenty of value to be found on the board, especially if you do you’re homework early in the week.

Here are the current Week 9 NFL odds and lines for the 2022 season.

NFL Week 9 Games

Philadelphia Eagles @ Houston Texans (Thursday Night Football)

Eagles -13 (-110) @ Texans +13 (-110)

The undefeated Eagles are two-touchdown favorites against Texans, which initially feels like a lot of points for a road team on a short week. This lookahead line was -9 on Friday, but has risen after another impressive Philadelphia win and another bad loss by Houston.

If I didn’t already have -9 in my back pocket, I’d probably stay away.

Los Angeles Chargers @ Atlanta Falcons (Nov. 6, 1 p.m. ET)

Chargers -3 (-114) @ Falcons +3 (-106)

The Chargers have had an extra week to prepare for their trip to Atlanta, which should offer little resistance to Justin Herbert and the passing game if Los Angeles play-caller Shane Steichen allows him to air it out.

Atlanta should also find some success on the ground here, which has me more interested in the Over than either side.

Miami Dolphins @ Chicago Bears

Dolphins -4.5 (-110) @ Bears +4.5 (-110)

Tua Tagovailoa and the Dolphins’ high-powered passing attack will meet NFC North opposition for the second straight week after overcoming a halftime deficit in Detroit. Chicago has been much more competitive at home this season, but asking Justin Fields and co. to keep up with this offense could prove problematic.

Carolina Panthers @ Cincinnati Bengals

Panthers +8.5 (-110) @ Bengals -8.5 (-110)

Since firing head coach Matt Rhule, the Panthers have been playing competitive football, even with a lack of talent on offense and third-string quarterback P.J. Walker leading the way.

Carolina may not win, but it should be able to keep things close against a Bengals team missing Ja’Marr Chase.

Green Bay Packers @ Detroit Lions

Packers -3.5 (-104) @ Lions +3.5 (-118)

Aaron Rodgers owns the Lions, boasting an 18-6 career record against Detroit that includes an 8-4 mark at Ford Field. And while this Green Bay is nothing like those of years’ past, the Packers should snap their four-game losing streak here.

I’d probably wait to see if you can get a three before laying the points, though.

Las Vegas Raiders @ Jacksonville Jaguars

Raiders -1.5 (-106) @ Jaguars +1.5 (-114)

These are among two of the most disappointing teams in the league this season and both are coming off bad losses in Week 8.

While it sounds weird, backing teams coming off a shutout loss is typically a profitable venture. All the Jaguars do is lose one-possession games, so give me the Raiders to get right on the road.

Indianapolis Colts @ New England Patriots

Colts +6 (-114) @ Patriots -6 (-106)

Over the years, Bill Belichick has made the best rookie quarterbacks look bad. This will be a tough test for Sam Ehlinger in his second career start.

I don’t really love laying this many points with New England, especially as the defense has had trouble defending mobile quarterbacks, but it’s a great teaser spot.

Buffalo Bills @ New York Jets

Bills -12.5 (-110) @ Jets +12.5 (-110)

Josh Allen has never lost at MetLife Stadium, and the Bills routed the Jets 45-17 there in 2021. New York’s defense has vastly improved since then, but it’s hard to imagine that Zach Wilson and the offense can put up enough points to stay close here.

At this number, I think it’s Buffalo or nothing, but I’ll stay away for now.

Minnesota Vikings @ Washington Commanders

Vikings -3.5 (-108) @ Commanders +3.5 (-112)

The Commanders have won three straight and Taylor Heinicke has shown the ability to win games in crunch time. This could be a sleepy spot for the Vikings, who have a four-game lead in the NFC North and travel to Buffalo in Week 10. I’ll take the points with the home dog.

Seattle Seahawks @ Arizona Cardinals (Nov. 6, 4:05 p.m. ET)

Seahawks +2.5 (-108) @ Cardinals -2.5 (-112)

The first-place Seahawks are road underdogs against the last-place Cardinals, who have struggled to win home games under head coach Kliff Kingsbury.

On paper, I think this matchup favors Seattle, but I’d wait to see if a three pops.

Los Angeles Rams @ Tampa Bay Buccaneers

Rams +3 (-118) @ Buccaneers -3 (-104)

This postseason rematch from a year ago may have lost some its luster as both teams have just three wins through eight weeks, which has only ramped up the significance of this matchup.

Backing the Buccaneers after three straight losses is a scary thought, but Tampa Bay has a rest advantage, a revenge narrative, and home-field advantage. It’s now or never for Tom Brady and co.

Back Tampa Bay as your NFL pick of the day.

Tennessee Titans @ Kansas City Chiefs (Sunday Night Football)

Titans +10.5 (-110) @ Chiefs -10.5 (-110)

The Titans have a negative point differential despite being 5-2, which is part of the reason why they are such big underdogs in this matchup with the Chiefs.

I don’t really want to lay this big of number with Kansas City, but it’s probably the right play, especially given Andy Reid‘s history coming off of a bye.

Baltimore Ravens @ New Orleans Saints (Monday Night Football)

Ravens -3 (-118) @ Saints +3 (-104)

This is probably a good sell-high spot on the Saints, who shut out the Raiders 24-0 on the back of running back Alvin Kamara. I’d get in on Baltimore before this spread goes above three.
