2019 NFL Week 9 Over/Under Betting Picks

Written by on October 29, 2019

Many teams are halfway through their 2019 regular-season schedule but not a single team has clinched a 2019 playoff spot, and not one has been eliminated. Even the winless Dolphins and Bengals haven’t been eliminated yet but it’s fair to say they aren’t going to the playoffs. Here’s a look at two NFL Week 9 matchups where we will bet the Mybookie NFL totals instead of the spread.

2019 NFL Week 9 ATS Betting Picks

Washington Redskins vs Buffalo Bills

Believe this is the lowest total of the season and it should be as both offenses stink. The Bills are averaging 18.1 offensive points per game, No. 24 in the NFL, but are 5-2 because they have a good defense. Buffalo is the only team with a winning record ranked in the bottom half of offensive scoring.

Buffalo comes off a one-sided 31-13 home loss to Philadelphia on Sunday. Josh Allen completed just 16-of-34 passes for 169 yards and two touchdowns in the loss. Allen’s first touchdown was a 14-yarder to Cole Beasley, and the second was a 28-yard screen to Devin Singletary. Allen also led the team in rushing with 45 yards on eight attempts but did lose a bad fumble. With winds gusting at 40-50 MPH at times in Orchard Park, the Bills didn’t really push the ball downfield against a terrible pass defense.

Philadelphia nearly had as many rushing yards (218) as Buffalo had in total yards (253). The Eagles averaged more than 6.0 yards per play for most of the game (finishing with 5.5) in a thoroughly dominant effort.

The NFL has officially lifted the suspension of Bills’ rookie LB Tyrel Dodson, who was given the six-game punishment on Sept 12 for a violation of the league’s personal conduct policy. He now enters a one-week exemption period, during which he can practice with the team but can’t play Sunday vs Washington.

What about the Redskins?

The Redskins lost 19-9 at Minnesota last Thursday. Case Keenum was forced from Washington’s Week 8 game against the Vikings with a concussion. Keenum didn’t miss any time in the first half but wasn’t out there for the first play of the third quarter. He was ruled out soon thereafter. Keenum had a strong first two quarters, completing 12-of-16 passes for 130 yards. He remains in the concussion protocol. Coach Bill Callahan has already stated that Keenum will remain the starter for Week 9 if healthy.

Rookie Dwayne Haskins was awful in relief of Keenum against the Vikings. Haskins had his second tough relief outing, completing 3 of 5 passes for 33 yards and an interception. In two games — he relieved Keenum and played 2½ quarters against the New York Giants in Week 4 — Haskins has thrown 22 passes and four interceptions. The Redskins have wanted Haskins to improve Haskins’ accuracy; when he has missed on throws in practice or now in games, they usually have been too high.

Cleveland Browns vs Denver Broncos (Total 42.5)

The offensively struggling Broncos will not have starting QB Joe Flacco for this game as he’s dealing with a herniated disk in his neck. Flacco’s season could be in jeopardy if the Broncos don’t get a favorable medical report after the team’s Nov. 10 bye.

Brandon Allen, claimed off waivers Sept. 1 from the Los Angeles Rams, will start against Cleveland. Allen has yet to attempt a regular season pass but did complete 44-of-69 throws for 431 yards and three picks in four preseason appearances with Los Angeles.

In Sunday’s last-minute loss to Indianapolis, Flacco was sacked three times, including on the game’s final play, and 11 times in the past two games. He has been sacked 26 times in eight starts this season. Only two quarterbacks have been sacked more often — Cincinnati’s Andy Dalton and Tampa Bay’s Jameis Winston.

Browns vs Broncos should be a close one in NFL Week 9.

Denver is 22nd in total offense, 28th in scoring offense and 26th in passing offense, and has scored more than 16 points just once this season. The Broncos have now scored 24 or fewer points in 17 consecutive games, the longest stretch in the league over that span.

What about the Browns?

Cleveland lost at the unbeaten Patriots 27-13 on Sunday, turning the ball over on three consecutive plays in the first quarter. The Browns became the first NFL team this season to turn the ball over three times in a first quarter. And Cleveland running back Nick Chubb became the first NFL player to fumble on consecutive plays from scrimmage since former Browns QB DeShone Kizer achieved the ignominious feat two years ago.

The Patriots scored two touchdowns off the turnovers. Chubb ran for 131 yards, and Baker Mayfield finished 20 of 31 for 194 yards and a touchdown but yet another pick.

Mayfield has been turnover-prone (he’s tied with Jameis Winston for the league lead in interceptions with 12), though poor offensive line play and questionable coaching by Freddie Kitchens certainly haven’t helped.
