Pumba’s Week 9 NFL Plays

Disappointing 1-4 record last week bringing me to 18-21-1 for the season but a good slate of games today to get that turned around.

Raiders -3

I just can’t seem to stop betting on this Raiders team. Unfortunately, Raiders had another huge distraction this week losing their leading WR after Henry Ruggs found out sometimes speed isn’t a good thing. Raiders have handled losing coach Gruden just fine and I’m thinking today they’ll be able to do the same without Ruggs against a weak Giants team.

Dolphins -5.5

In the game we’ve all been waiting for, we get a pair of 1-7 squads looking to see who can try harder to lose. Both of these teams started the season with a win and haven’t been able to get one since. As of the late the Texans have been far better at getting absolutely dominated week after week and I don’t think today goes much differently for them. The Dolphins have at least been competitive the last several weeks and should easily win today.

Vikings +6

As the Vikings tend to do, they disappointed their fans last Sunday night losing at home to a Cooper Rush lead Cowboys team. On paper this game looks like the Ravens should be able to dominate but the Vikings find a way to play to the level of their competition whether good or bad. The Vikings 4 losses this year have been by 1, 3, 4, and 7 which is why I feel comfortable getting +6 today. Also, for whatever reason I just sense that the Vikings might win outright today just to save Zimmer’s job for the rest of the season.

Bengals -2.5

Both of these teams are coming off of tough losses, but the Browns seem to be in way more chaos than the Bengals. OBJ is off the team now for a Browns offense that was already struggling. Browns have only managed a total of 41 in their last 3 games and today won’t go much better for them. I think this line is an overreaction to the Bengals losing to the Jets last week and should be closer to -5 or -6.

Cardinals +3.5

I can’t believe the Cardinals are getting over a full FG this week at SF. This is already the 2nd meeting for these 2 teams with the Cardinals winning by 7 at home in week 5. Cardinals didn’t look very good in their last game against the Packers but I never put too much weight into Thursday night games played on only 3 days rest. Cardinals have had extra rest days for this week and Ilike them to go into SF and have a great chance of winning this game outright.
