NFL picks, Week 9: Straight up and against the spread

I should get less sleep more often. Last week I made the picks after a night of maybe four hours of sleep and I went 12-1 on the straight up picks and 4-2 against the spread. I doubt I do as well this week because there are a lot of tough games to decide in Week 9.

Against the Spread

When betting against the spread I pick what I think the spread to each game should be. Then if my spread is two or more points away from the actual spread, I place a bet on the team my spread favors.Remember, I do this for fun. If you’re expecting to make money off of these, don’t. Also, please note at the time this was written BAL/TEN and KC/DAL did not have a spread on the site I use. I will add them later when a spread is out.
