Analyzing The NFL Odds Highlights Biggest Betting Mismatches For Week 9


Dallas at Cleveland

When: Sunday, November 6, 2016 at 1:00 PM ETWhere: FirstEnergy StadiumTV: FOXOdds: Dallas -7Analysis: The Dallas Cowboys (6-1 SU, 6-0-1 ATS) have won six straight games and will take on a Cleveland Browns (0-8 SU, 2-6 ATS) team in Week 9 that has yet to win a single game this season. The Boys and their gifted rookie signal-caller Dak Prescott are looking better and better with each passing game while Cleveland just can’t get a win – and has gone through quarterbacks this season like they’re going out of style.Dallas got past Philadelphia 29-23 in an absolute overtime thriller as Prescott made several game-changing plays after struggling for the majority of the first three quarters. Cleveland put up a great effort but ended up falling to the New York Jets 31-28 this past weekend.More importantly for this matchup, the Browns are averaging just 19.7 points per game (25th) while allowing an overly generous 29.7 points per game (30th). With Dallas ranking seventh in both, scoring (26.8 ppg) and points allowed (18.5 ppg), I’m thinking this game could be over by halftime.The Cowboys are 5-0 ATS in its last five games and 5-2 ATS in their last seven road games while Cleveland has gone 1-4 ATS in their last five games and a disgraceful 1-8-1 ATS in their last 10 home games. The Cowboys win and cover the spread with room to spare.Pick: Dallas 35 Cleveland 21 

Carolina at LA Rams

When: Sunday, November 6, 2016 at 4:05 PM ETWhere: Los Angeles Memorial ColiseumTV: FOXOdds: Carolina -3Analysis: The Los Angeles Rams (3-4 SU, 3-4 ATS) have lost three consecutive games and only managed to score 10 points in their convincing 17-10 loss against the New York Giants two weeks ago. The Carolina Panthers (2-5 SU, 2-5 ATS) snapped a four-game losing streak by pounding inconsistent Arizona in its 30-20 Week 8 win on Sunday.The Rams have been awful on offense this season and enter this contest ranked 30th in scoring (17.1 ppg). While L.A. does have a solid defense and one of the best defensive lines in all of football, I just don’t see them being able to put enough points on the board against a Carolina defense that looked really good last weekend.Veteran signal-caller Case Keenum is clearly not a starting caliber NFL quarterback and will be in big trouble in this contest against Carolina linebackers Thomas Davis and Luke Kuechly. The Panthers have lost four straight road games, but they won’t drop this Week 9 matchup against a Rams team they are better than in every way imaginable.Pick: Panthers 31 Rams 14

New Orleans at San Francisco

When: Sunday, November 6, 2016 at 4:05 PM ETWhere: Levi’s StadiumTV: FOXOdds: New Orleans -3Analysis: The New Orleans Saints (3-4 SU, 5-2 ATS) have won three of their last four games and looked really solid in stunning Seattle 25-20 last weekend while moving to a perfect 4-0 ATS over their last four games. San Francisco (1-6 SU, 1-6 ATS) has lost a whopping six straight games since winning their opener and looked completely lost and confused in their 34-17 Week 7 loss against Tampa Bay.The Saints have one of the best quarterback-head coach combinations in the league in Drew Brees and Sean Payton while the Niners counter with an athletic, but not accurate quarterback in Colin Kaepernick and a head coach in Chip Kelly that now looks clearly out of his comfort zone in the NFL.New Orleans averages an impressive 28.7 points per game while San Francisco averages a middling 20.5 points per game. More importantly, the Saints have won seven of their last 10 meetings against San Francisco and will do so again by simply outscoring the Niners to get the outright road win.Pick: New Orleans 31 San Francisco 21
