NFL Expert Picks, Week 9: Eagles Over Bears Despite 9-Point Spread

With virtually no fan fare at all, we give you our NFL Week 9 expert picks against the spread. You can take these picks and do with them what you will, but know that we are 59-51 ATS. You can pick against us in our weekly contest which you can join here (ID: 55411, PW: arizona).      

Here's our picks for the Sunday afternoon, evening and Monday games. We'll have the rest of the picks posted on Friday and here's our lock of the week.     

Denver Broncos at Oakland Raiders (-9): Tim Tebow versus Carson Palmer, we can't wait! We have to give the edge to the Raiders at home but with Darren McFadden banged up, we don't see a cover. Pick: Broncos

Cincinnati Bengals at Tennessee Titans (-3): We just can't buy into the Titans...or the Bengals. But we buy more Bengals than Titans. Pick: Bengals

New York Giants at New England Patriots (-9): The Giants are banged up and the Patriots are coming off a loss. This one is easy if the spread wasn't so high. Damn those Vegas odds-makers! Pick: Patriots

Green Bay Packers at San Diego Chargers (+5.5): The Chargers aren't right and they aren't going to get right against the Packers. Pick: Packers

Baltimore Ravens at Pittsburgh Steelers (-3.5): We already picked this one. 

Chicago Bears at Philadelphia Eagles (-8): The Eagles have turned the corner and put all that "Dream Team" talent to good use. Pick: Eagles

St. Louis Rams at Arizona Cardinals (?): The line on this game ranges from Cards -1 to Cards -3 with "no line" also an option. That's what happens when you have both starting quarterbacks "questionable" for the game. Regardless, we're going to pick the home team because we're homers. Pick: Cardinals
