Picks against the spread for Week 9 NFL games

The San Francisco 49ers won a big one, covering the slim spread against the Oakland Raiders in Week 9. Time for my Westgate SuperContest picks, as well as my picks for the remaining games this week.

The 2018 NFL season is officially in full swing, which means regular season betting is back. I’m back for another year of picks in the Westgate SuperContest. SB Nation’s partners over at Odds Shark are sponsoring my entry again. The contest requires selecting 5 games each week and picking them against the spread. I had a hideous 0-5 performance in Week 8, dropping to 17-20-3 for the season. Overall for last week, I finished 4-10. It wasn’t pretty.

I did not take the 49ers this week, although I did pick them to beat the Raiders on Thursday. If I wanted to include them in my SuperContest picks, I would have had to make all my SuperContest picks on Thursday. I’m scuffling along right now, but I wanted to wait until the late Friday early Saturday deadline to get in picks.

Here are my five SuperContest picks for Week 9:

BROWNS (+8) over Chiefs
PANTHERS (-6) over Buccaneers (+6)
WASHINGTON (-1.5) over Falcons
SAINTS (-1.5) over Rams
Titans (+6.5) over COWBOYS

I went 4-10 overall in Week 8. Here are all my picks for Week 9:

49ERS vs. Raiders (+2.5): 49ers — WIN
VIKINGS vs. Lions (+4.5): Vikings
BROWNS vs. Chiefs (-8): Browns
RAVENS vs. Steelers (+3): Ravens
PANTHERS vs. Buccaneers (+6): Panthers
DOLPHINS vs. Jets (+3): Jets
WASHINGTON vs. Falcons (+1.5): Washington
BILLS vs. Bears (-10): Bears
BRONCOS vs. Texans (+1): Texans
SEAHAWKS vs. Chargers (+2): Seahawks
SAINTS vs. Rams (+1.5): Saints
PATRIOTS vs. Packers (+6): Packers
COWBOYS vs. Titans (+6.5): Titans
