Week 9 of the NFL has already started and you probably still need help with bets for Sunday’s games. We know how to take care of the people who need it most and we have elaborated a small analysis of the games that await you, along with a forecast to which you should pay attention.
WASHINGTON REDSKINS (5-2) VS ATLANTA FALCONS (3-4)
While the Redskins have placed themselves at the head of the NFC East Division, the Falcons have little margin for error if they want to advance to the postseason. The Washington defense has not allowed any runner to exceed 50 yards rushing in the campaign, and now they will have Haha Clinton-Dix, who came from the Green Bay Packers. Adrian Peterson adds 587 yards and four touchdowns in the campaign. Matt Ryan is fifth in the NFL with 2,335 yards passing, 812 of them to Julio Jones. The Atlanta defense is number 30 in the NFL, with 419.4 yards allowed per game.
BALTIMORE RAVENS (4-4) VS PITTSBURGH STEELERS (4-2-1)
With three losses in four games, the Ravens urgently need a win against the Steelers, who arrive with three wins in a row. Baltimore has the best defense, with 293.8 yards allowed, but allowed 33 points and was dominated by the Carolina Panthers last week. The Ravens’ offense has suffered, with only 96.6 yards per game, but they acquired Ty Montgomery from the Green Bay Packers. The Pittsburgh defense allowed 451 yards in its first game against Baltimore, but it comes from limiting the Cleveland Browns to 237. James Conner is third in the NFL, with 599 rushing yards, plus nine touchdowns.
DENVER BRONCOS (3-5) VS HOUSTON TEXANS (5-3)
In the first place of the AFC South Division, the Texans look to keep the good time against the Broncos. Philip Lindsay is still surprising and already adds 531 yards on the ground, with an average of 5.1 yards per carry. The Broncos defense returned to inconsistency and allowed 30 points to the Kansas City Chiefs last week. Demaryius Thomas and his 402 yards left for Houston and will make his debut against his former team on Sunday. The Texans have had problems in the red zone both on offense and defensive, being the 28th place in touchdown effectiveness on both sides of the ball.
SEATTLE SEAHAWKS (4-3) VS LOS ANGELES CHARGERS (5-2)
The Seahawks and Chargers are looking to improve their chances for the playoffs when they meet in the Pacific Northwest. Chris Carson has revived Seattle’s running game, with 457 yards and two touchdowns. Russell Wilson completes 65-9 percent of his shipments for 1,556 yards, 16 touchdowns and four interceptions. Philip Rivers has had an outstanding season, with 17 touchdown passes and only three interceptions. Keenan Allen has 501 receiving yards, while Melvin Gordon leads the runners with 446 yards and five yards per carry.
NEW ORLEANS SAINTS (6-1) VS LOS ANGELES RAMS (8-0)
In the duel of the day, the undefeated Rams visit the Saints, who have not lost since the opening day. In addition to adding six games without losing, the last three victories of New Orleans have been against divisional leaders, and only the victory against the Baltimore Ravens has been particularly complicated. The Saints offense is increasingly balanced, with Drew Brees, Michael Thomas, Alvin Kamara and Mark Ingram, while the arrival of Eli Apple on the defensive strengthens the secondary. Todd Gurley is an NFL leader with 800 rushing yards and 15 total touchdowns. The Los Angeles defense also improved with the trade for Dante Fowler from the Jacksonville Jaguars.
