NFL 2022 Weekly Preview: Week 9

News Content

Welcome to our Weekly Preview. Can you believe it’s already November?

Last week, we swept the NFL board going 3-0 and finished with an overall record of 3-2 for the week.

We expect to keep our momentum this week with a great card.

If this is your first time reading our Weekly Preview, we have a winner for each of the 5 days of football.

This covers the NFL Thursday Night Football, a Friday college football game, a Saturday college football game, a Sunday NFL game and finally the Monday Night Football game to end the week!

With that said, let’s get into the winners for the week!

NFL – Philadelphia Eagles @ Houston Texans

This Thursday night we get the undefeated Philadelphia Eagles (7-0) taking on the second worst team in the league, the Houston Texans (1-5-1).

While the Eagles are looking to go 8-0 for the first time in franchise history, we believe that this will be a tougher than expected matchup for them.

Jalen Hurts is heading back to Houston to play for the first time in his career.

He grew up there so we are expecting him to have a lot of friends and family in the stands.

This added pressure usually doesn’t work out well for an opposing quarterback on the road and while we expect the Eagles to win, giving up 13.5 points on the road is a lot.

At home, the Texans play pretty decent football. They have lost by 10, 7 and also have tied.

The Eagles are 3-0 on the road and have won by 3 against the Lions, 16 against the Commanders and 3 against the Cardinals.

With the Texans only giving up 22 points per game, we believe that the 13.5 points are very safe to take.

The Eagles may come out a bit rusty as this will be their first game on the road since early October.

While we expect the Eagles to improve to 8-0, we think this game will be a lot closer than expected.

Take the 13.5 points and feel quite safe with the Texans on Thursday Night.

Selection: Houston Texans +13.5 @ 1.92

College Football – Oregon State Beavers @ Washington Huskies

Is there anything better in college football than a Friday Night game with a ranked team on the road getting points?

For years, we have taken the home favourite in this situation and it usually pays off.

The Beavers are an impressive 6-2 and are riding a 3 game win streak. Unfortunately for them, they aren’t a great squad on the road.

They were blown out 42-16 in Utah and won narrowly against Fresno State by 3 and Stanford by 1.

The Huskies on the other hand are undefeated at home and have won each game by 10+ points.

Their fans should be fired up on Friday Night as this will be a nationally televised game on ESPN 2 and against the #23 ranked team in the country.

Like we said earlier, we love fading the ranked team getting points against an unranked team.

The Huskies can move the ball as well as any team in the nation averaging a whopping 507 yards per game.

We expect them to move the ball against a Beavers defence that gives up over 350 yards per game.

Expect the Huskies to feed off their home crowd and win against the ranked Beavers on Friday night.

Lay the 4 points as we believe Washington will win by double digits.

Selection: Washington Huskies -4 @ 1.87

College Football - Michigan State Spartans @ Illinois Fighting Illini

The Michigan State Spartans have hit a new low.

After losing to their rival Michigan, some Spartan players assaulted a couple Wolverines in the tunnel after the game.

With 8 players suspended indefinitely and the Spartans losing five out of their last six games, something needs to change.

We are expecting the 95 million man, Mel Tucker, to have his team refocused and ready on Saturday.

If not, we believe that his contract may be the worst in all of college football. Michigan State needs to win 3 of their last 4 games to be bowl eligible.

They have Rutgers and Indiana at home but then will face #15 Penn State on the road in their final game.

With that said, these Spartans need to pull a big upset either this week or in their last game.

We believe that they have the athletes to pull the upset against a 7-1 Illinois squad that has not beaten any ranked opponents this year.

While they lost to Michigan last week, the Spartans played quite tough especially in the first half.

17 points is way too much to be giving to a hungry team that is playing for pride. Expect Mel Tucker to have his team ready for this game.

We could see a possible upset here, but we’ll be safe and take the 17 points.

Selection: Michigan State Spartans +17 @ 1.90

NFL – Seattle Seahawks @ Arizona Cardinals

This is a perfect spot for the Arizona Cardinals.

Already losing to the Seahawks 19-9 in Seattle as a 2.5-point favourite, we now get the same exact spread in Arizona.

The major difference here is that DeAndre Hopkins is back and playing great football.

In his two games back this year, Hopkins has caught 22 passes for 262 yards.

He will be the X-Factor here and we believe that Kyler Murray will have a huge game.

Last week, Murray threw two interceptions and didn’t play well.

We will blame the new Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 for his struggles as that game was released during his preparation time for the Vikings.

Now that he has a week under his belt of playing, we believe he will be focused for the Seahawks.

The Seahawks are overachieving at 5-3 and need to come back down to reality.

They have turned over the ball every game this season and these turnovers will eventually hurt them in the long run.

Winners of three straight, we expect them to get destroyed against a Cardinals team that is in a must win situation.

At 3-5, the Cardinals need to win this game to have any chance of making the Playoffs.

With a road game at the Rams next week followed by a game against the 49ers in Mexico City, these Cardinals can easily be 3-8 if they don’t win at home against the Seahawks.

With all that said, we believe this is an amazing spot for the Cardinals. Lay the 2.5 points and expect this to be a blowout.

Selection: Arizona Cardinals -2.5 @ 1.89

NFL – Baltimore Ravens @ New Orleans Saints

Are you ready for Monday Night Football?

We are ready to fade Andy Dalton once again in Primetime.

Andy is an impressive 6-19 in Primetime games and we expect him to struggle yet again against a very talented Baltimore team.

The Ravens have their bye week up next and would love to go into their bye at 6-3 rather than 5-4.

Almost every game the Ravens have played this year has come down to the wire.

Their three losses were by a combined 11 points and their wins were by 5, 3, 2, 9 and 15.

We have to go back to September 26 since the Ravens played in a game that was determined by over a touchdown.

With that said, we believe the Ravens will build on their success from last week’s Thursday Night victory against Tom Brady and the Buccaneers.

Lamar Jackson is by far the better quarterback here, and we believe he will have a huge game on Monday Night.

We are not sold on the Saints and we believe that their coach is making the wrong decision in sitting Jameis Winston and starting Andy Dalton.

We expect a terrible game out of Dalton with the Ravens forcing multiple turnovers.

Expect this game to get ugly quickly with the Ravens easily covering the 3-point spread. 

Selection: Baltimore Ravens -3 @ 1.97

While we have not hit our multi yet for the year, we feel like we have a great shot this week.

This week, our multi pays 25:1.

What better way to start November with a huge multiplier!

Best of luck and enjoy this wonderful week of football.
