Dolphins at Chiefs

Time: Sunday, 9:30 a.m. ET (NFL Network), stream on fubo (try for free)   
Open: Chiefs -5.5, O/U 50.5

Featured Game | Kansas City Chiefs vs. Miami Dolphins

“The Dolphins have played two teams this year that currently have a winning record — Philadelphia and Buffalo — and they lost those two games by an average of 21 points. They can’t beat good teams and I’m not sure if playing this game in a different country is going to change that. Also, if I have one rule here, it’s that I never pick against Patrick Mahomes when he’s coming off a loss. Mahomes has won eight straight games coming off a loss, which is the longest streak of any QB in the NFL.”

Tua Tagovailoa and the Dolphins may have the NFL’s best offense, with multiple MVP candidates in their lineup, but CBS Sports NFL expert John Breech isn’t betting against the reigning champions. Catch all his Week 9 ATS bets right here.

Vikings at Falcons

Time: Sunday, 1 p.m. ET (Fox), stream on fubo (try for free)
Open: Falcons -1.5, O/U 41.5

Featured Game | Atlanta Falcons vs. Minnesota Vikings

“The Vikings downgraded at quarterback while the Falcons upgraded. Kirk Cousins of course tore his Achilles last week, which pushes the rookie Jaren Hall into the lineup for now, while Falcons head coach Arthur Smith benched Desmond Ridder for Taylor Heinicke. Ridder led the NFL in giveaways with 12. … Atlanta’s defense looked good this year up until Will Levis surprisingly shredded them. I’m not expecting Hall to throw four touchdowns against the Falcons like the kid from Kentucky did last week.”

That’s CBS Sports NFL expert Jordan Dajani, who’s all in on a Falcons rebuild. Check out all his Week 9 predictions right here.

Cardinals at Browns

Time: Sunday, 1 p.m. ET (CBS), stream on Paramount+ (click here
Open: Browns -7.5, O/U 39.5

Featured Game | Cleveland Browns vs. Arizona Cardinals

“Arizona will be starting rookie fifth-round pick Clayton Tune in this game. That’s about as tough of a landing spot into the NFL as you can imagine for the youngster, as he’ll go into Cleveland and face a Browns defense that can torment even the most seasoned signal-callers. The Browns defense is a league-best on third down (28.3% opponent conversion rate) and allows just 260 yards of total offense per game. Myles Garrett also has 8.5 sacks on the year and can wreck a game on his own when he’s firing on all cylinders. This game has blowout potential no matter what the Cleveland offense looks like.”

CBS Sports NFL expert Tyler Sullivan isn’t giving Arizona much of a chance here. Check out all his Week 9 picks right here.

Rams at Packers

Time: Sunday, 1 p.m. ET (Fox), stream on fubo (try for free)  
Open: Rams -1.5, O/U 43.5

Featured Game | Green Bay Packers vs. Los Angeles Rams

“This is consecutive road games for the Rams after they were dominated by the Cowboys last week. And Matthew Stafford is dinged up. The Packers didn’t look good in losing at home to the Vikings last week, but their season is on the line here, and I think they will play that way.” That’s CBS Sports senior columnist Pete Prisco, who’s confident Green Bay can finally get back on track at Lambeau. Check out all of his Week 9 ATS predictions right here.

Commanders at Patriots

Time: Sunday, 1 p.m. ET (Fox), stream on fubo (try for free)    
Open: Patriots -2.5, O/U 39

Featured Game | New England Patriots vs. Washington Commanders

The SportsLine projection model, which simulates every NFL game 10,000 times, is on a 174-123 run on top-rated NFL picks dating to the 2017 season. It is also on a 28-15 roll on top-rated NFL picks since Week 7 of last season. After simulating every snap of Week 9, one of its top parlay picks for a potential 25-1 payout is clear: the Patriots cover at home against the Commanders in well over 50% of simulations after Washington traded both Chase Young and Montez Sweat. Get the full breakdown right here.

Bears at Saints

Time: Sunday, 1 p.m. ET (CBS), stream on Paramount+ (click here
Open: Saints -5.5, O/U 40.5

Featured Game | New Orleans Saints vs. Chicago Bears

SportsLine’s simulation model is up well over $7,000 for $100 players on top-rated NFL picks since its inception. The model also ranked in the top 10 on NFLPickWatch four of the past six years on straight-up NFL picks and beat more than 94% of CBS Sports Football Pick’em players four times during that span. Now, we can tell you the Saints (-8.5) cover against the Bears in almost 60% of simulations for Week 9, making it one of the strongest bets of the slate. Catch the full breakdown at SportsLine right here.

Seahawks at Ravens

Time: Sunday, 1 p.m. ET (CBS), stream on Paramount+ (click here)  
Open: Ravens -4.5, O/U 42.5

Featured Game | Baltimore Ravens vs. Seattle Seahawks

The Seahawks are fresh off a tight win over the Browns’ top-ranked defense, meaning they’re looking to make it three straight victories when they travel to Baltimore to face off with Lamar Jackson and the Ravens in Week 9. They’ll also have a new-look defensive line, with ex-Giants standout Leonard Williams in tow after the trade deadline. Does Seattle have what it takes to pull off the upset on the road? Or are the Ravens about to confirm they’re among the top contenders in the AFC? SportsLine expert Jason La Canfora has a confident bet on this matchup, plus other key games on the Week 9 slate. Find his analysis right here.

Buccaneers at Texans 

Time: Sunday, 1 p.m. ET (CBS), stream on Paramount+ (click here
Open: Texans -2.5, O/U 39.5

Featured Game | Houston Texans vs. Tampa Bay Buccaneers

“These teams are basically the same team. You could call them the Houston Buccaneers and the Tampa Bay Texans. They’re both coming off disappointing offensive days. Tampa Bay’s defense is 32nd on third down but first in the red zone. Houston’s defense is very similar. Both defenses are great versus the run, and both offenses can’t run. I think getting Tampa with the three points on extended rest, I think that’s the way to go here. I don’t think if Houston wins this game, it’s gonna be by more than three.”

That’s SportsLine expert and CBS Fantasy and gambling editor R.J. White on the “Pick Six NFL Podcast.” Catch his full breakdown on this game, plus projections for every Week 9 showdown, right here.

Colts at Panthers

Time: Sunday, 4:05 p.m. ET (CBS), stream on Paramount+ (click here)  
Open: Colts -2.5, O/U 43

Featured Game | Carolina Panthers vs. Indianapolis Colts

“Do you believe in miracles? No, OK, fine. Do you believe in Revenge Games™️? Great, because this is the perfect Revenge Game™️. Frank Reich was fired midseason last year as Colts coach for Jeff Saturday. If you don’t know the details, here’s a quick download: Reich won a Super Bowl as an offensive coordinator, and Saturday hadn’t coached above the high school level prior to that year. Jeff isn’t to blame, though; Jim Irsay is to blame. And Lil’ Jimmy Irsay is missing his quarterback and equipped only with Gardner Minshew. The Panthers aren’t good and the Colts aren’t bad, but Indy shouldn’t be favored here on the road. Bryce Young probably got the game ball last week, but even if Reich did I can easily picture David Tepper handing him another one, slapping him on the back and getting a good guffaw in on Irsay’s behalf.”

CBS Sports senior writer Will Brinson is dialing up an upset by the home underdogs. Catch all his Week 9 analysis right here.

Giants at Raiders

Time: Sunday, 4:25 p.m. ET (Fox), stream on fubo (try for free)
Open: Raiders -3, O/U 39.5

Featured Game | Las Vegas Raiders vs. New York Giants

“Taking any team to stay within a touchdown of a Raiders squad that cannot score seems like a pretty good move. But the Giants have also struggled to score points for basically the entire season. … It sounds like the offense will be missing its most reliable pass catcher as well due to Darren Waller’s injury, so I jut can’t have confidence in this team scoring more than 7-10 points. I’ll also point out that the Raiders are probably getting a coaching upgrade this week with the firing of Josh McDaniels, and plenty of teams have seen spikes in performance following the dismissal of a maligned head coach. Expect the team to give a lot of effort in the hopes of beating a bad Giants team and getting interim coach Antonio Pierce a win in his coaching debut. I could see this being something like 20-10 Las Vegas when all is said and done.”

SportsLine expert R.J. White, who’s fresh off a 9-0 week making ATS picks, likes Las Vegas at home, even amid staff turnover. Check out his full breakdown of Week 9 picks, including top teaser plays, right here.

Cowboys at Eagles

Time: Sunday, 4:25 p.m. ET (Fox), stream on fubo (try for free)
Open: Eagles -3, O/U 46.5

Featured Game | Philadelphia Eagles vs. Dallas Cowboys

“In his last three starts against the Eagles, not only has Dak Prescott gone 3-0, but the Cowboys have averaged 44 points per game. In those three wins, Prescott threw 11 touchdowns compared to just one interception. I don’t know why, but the Eagles seem to bring out the best in Dak. … On the Eagles’ end, Jalen Hurts is still hobbling around and I’m not sure how he’s going handle the Cowboys’ pass rush. I won’t be surprised if he struggles, but even if he does find time to throw the ball, the Cowboys have two corners (Stephon Gilmore and DaRon Bland) who are good enough to slow down A.J. Brown and DeVonta Smith. With this game in Philadelphia, I hate picking against the Eagles, but I’m going to do it anyway.”

CBS Sports NFL expert John Breech likes “America’s Team” to stun the Birds on the road. Catch all his Week 9 picks right here.

CBS Sports Fantasy and gambling editor R.J. White has twice cashed big in the world’s most prestigious handicapping tournament, the Westgate Las Vegas SuperContest. His Vegas content picks are 376-290-24 (56.5 percent). And he shares those five weekly picks on SportsLine. We can tell you he’s leaning in favor of the Cowboys, but you’ll wanna head over to SportsLine for a complete breakdown of his Week 8 contest picks. Here’s a sneak peek: 

“The Eagles are the league’s last remaining one-loss team, but they’re not playing like it. Jalen Hurts’ injury is sapping his rushing ability, a key component of the Eagles offense, and the team ranks 24th in interception rate. That’s not ideal going up against a Cowboys defense that’s first in interception rate and has dominated multiple games this season”

Bills at Bengals

Time: Sunday, 8:20 p.m. ET (NBC), stream on fubo (try for free
Open: Bills -1.5, O/U 46.5

Featured Game | Cincinnati Bengals vs. Buffalo Bills

“The Bengals have come back to life after the slow start due to Joe Burrow‘s calf injury early in the season, which really impacted the offense. Buffalo played looser against the Bucs last week and they have three extra days of rest. This will be a fun offensive game that will go right down to the wire. It’s tight, but the Bengals will win it late.”

That’s CBS Sports senior columnist Pete Prisco, who’s predicting a high-scoring thriller for the Sunday night contest in Cincinnati. To check out all of Pete’s picks for Week 9, click here.

Chargers at Jets

Time: Monday, 8:15 p.m. ET (ESPN, ABC), stream on fubo (try for free
Open: Chargers -2.5, O/U 42.5

Featured Game | New York Jets vs. Los Angeles Chargers

R.J. White doesn’t stick only to contest picks; he is also the king of ATS projections at SportsLine. R.J.’s gone 535-450-30 on his against-the-spread NFL picks from 2017-22, returning $3,532 to $100 players. He’s also clued into the Chargers in particular, going 26-10-2 in his last 38 ATS picks involving Los Angeles. Check out his breakdown of this matchup right here.
