Gregg Rosenthal went 7-8 straight up and in opposition to the spread on his Week 8 NFL picks, bringing his season totals to 73-49 and 62-58-1, respectively. How will he fare in Week 9? His picks are beneath.

The lines beneath equipped by Caesars are most common as of 11 a.m. ET on Thursday, Nov. 4 unless otherwise famed beneath.

Who knew that the presence of Mike White would make TNF extra spirited? Making his first NFL beginning in opposition to the Bengals this past Sunday, the fourth-yr pro confirmed the next repeat of Mike LaFleur’s offense than rookie Zach Wilson, however I’m hesitant to completely bewitch in before seeing him stop it again. And while the Jets’ urge protection bought a enhance from the returns of Jarrad Davis and C.J. Mosley closing week, the Colts’ upswing has lasted five weeks, no longer one. Indianapolis has three convincing wins in opposition to lesser squads and two heartbreakers in opposition to the AFC’s completely, a class I’m no longer ready to place White in. But.

  • WHERE: Caesars Superdome (Fresh Orleans)
  • WHEN: 1 p.m. ET | FOX
  • SPREAD: Falcons +6 | O/U: 42

Sean Payton has played coy about who will beginning at quarterback this week. Taysom Hill makes so worthy money it is onerous to take into consideration he’ll sit down if he is again from his concussion, however Payton is elephantine of surprises. Either arrangement, the Saints coach must possess cherished looking on the Falcons receive bullied closing week in Carolina. His team is as healthy up entrance because it has been all season and has the measurement to take dangle of in a identical trend to Carolina. Appropriate don’t request it to be straight forward; these Saints admire drama and the downgrade at quarterback is accurate.

  • WHERE: AT&T Stadium (Arlington, Texas)
  • WHEN: 1 p.m. ET | FOX
  • SPREAD: Cowboys -10 | O/U:  49.5

Appropriate when it regarded like the Broncos’ offense modified into as soon as getting its players again, left tackle Garett Bolles modified into as soon as effort and tight slay Noah Fant bought COVID-19. The Broncos’ protection, given a one-game reprieve from Taylor Heinicke, correct isn’t very no doubt equipped to take care of this Cowboys’ offense, assuming Dak Prescott returns to the starting lineup. If Prescott is out, I’d make the receive nearer, because Teddy Bridgewater might also mute place up factors for Denver, specifically if the Broncos are trailing for the duration of.

  • WHERE: Monetary institution of America Stadium (Charlotte, N.C.)
  • WHEN: 1 p.m. ET | CBS
  • SPREAD: Patriots -3.5 | O/U:  41

Invoice Belichick must possess cracked a smile looking on the film of the Panthers working 47 times and throwing it completely 25 closing week in a tight game — as a minimum till the game-sealing interception by ex-Patriot Stephon Gilmore. Carolina’s protection is diversified with Gilmore within the mix, and with linebacker Shaq Thompson continuing his torrid season after lacking three video games to spoil. Whether or no longer Sam Darnold or P.J. Walker is at quarterback, the Panthers are constructed to boring down the tempo of play — and they also’re constructed to boring the bettering Patriots offense. This figures to switch attempting for like a game that a young Matt Rhule, decked in Giants equipment, would possess enjoyed looking at Belichick coordinate again within the leisurely 1980s.

  • WHERE: M&T Monetary institution Stadium (Baltimore)
  • WHEN: 1 p.m. ET | FOX
  • SPREAD:  Vikings +6 | O/U: 49.5

The Week 8 bye did not resolve all of Baltimore’s spoil considerations, with wideout Sammy Watkins, starting tackle Patrick Mekari and a trio of starting defensive linemen out of prepare Wednesday. But needed blocking off tight slay Carve Boyle is coming again, and there might be reason to think relating to the Ravens will be taught the approach to quilt up their weak spots, because they continuously possess within the past. Losing gallop rusher Danielle Hunter for the season, on high of cornerback Patrick Peterson‘s absence, limits what Minnesota coach Mike Zimmer can stop defensively. This appears to be to be like as if a arrangement where the Vikings play greater than most folk request, yet rep a technique to lose painfully.

  • WHERE: Paul Brown Stadium (Cincinnati)
  • WHEN: 1 p.m. ET | CBS
  • SPREAD: Browns +2.5 | O/U: 47

The awful vibes in Cleveland bought worse this week, with Odell Beckham Jr. being educated to slay home Wednesday and Thursday. The Browns entered the week with extra spoil questions than their opponent, as unusual, and with the awful quarterback in a Cleveland-Cincinnati game for the first time in a truly lengthy time. But I mute believe their coach and roster extra overall than those of the frisky Bengals. An vitality-and-execution protection like Cincinnati’s has smaller margins for error, and Cleveland’s working game is constructed to steamroll.

  • WHERE: TIAA Monetary institution Self-discipline (Jacksonville, Fla.)
  • WHEN: 1 p.m. ET | CBS
  • SPREAD:  Payments -14.5 | O/U: 48.5

Right here’s the yr of the double-digit authorized within the NFL. Extra times than no longer, the double-digit authorized has lined. Someway, the Jaguars have not been sharp about any of those video games. That speaks to their straight forward schedule, which furthermore speaks to their cheap utter to being the league’s worst team. That’s a lengthy arrangement of announcing the Payments possess essentially the most proper protection in football, and there might be no longer no doubt a bunch huge ample to convince me to prefer the Jaguars on Sunday.

  • WHERE: Interesting Rock Stadium (Miami Gardens, Fla.)
  • WHEN: 1 p.m. ET | FOX
  • SPREAD:  Texans +5.5 | O/U: 46.5

After I modified into as soon as beneath the affect Davis Mills would beginning this game for Houston, I wasn’t sharp to prefer the 6.5 factors of bait on the Texans’ aspect. Houston is the uncommon team that will no longer be ready to stress Tua Tagovailoa, and I figured Brian Flores would cook up ample third-down heat to power Mills into rookie errors. So, at initial publishing, this rental predicted a 28-17 Dolphins snatch. But on Thursday, Texans coach David Culley announced Tyrod Taylor would retake the quarterbacking reins. The toll road modified — dropping a present 5.5 — and so did my calculation. Taylor regarded terrific in his six quarters of play before spoil. He dramatically upgrades this Texans offense, so I’m no longer contented giving freely too many factors in a matchup of 1-snatch groups.

I write these picks on Wednesday, when Giants participant availability is total guesswork. Even if I do know, there might be no approach to establish which four Giants will gallop away with recent accidents within the first half on Sunday. I’ve believed that Fresh York is greater than its file for a while now, and Daniel Jones is largely preserving up, however the fact Joe Decide’s squad has been outscored 42-0 within the closing two minutes of first halves is an indictment of his teaching ability. The Giants are awful on your complete situational football methods he is presupposed to be correct. In a combat of special groups mavens, I’m rolling with the BISACCIA BUMP.

  • WHERE: Lincoln Monetary Self-discipline (Philadelphia)
  • WHEN: 4: 05 p.m. ET | CBS
  • SPREAD: Chargers -1.5 | O/U:  50

The Eagles retain getting these opportunities to achieve to relevance within the broad-beginning NFC urge for the seventh seed, and they also retain coming up short. I loved a couple of of the Chargers’ post-bye defensive adjustments, despite the indisputable fact that accidents at cornerback short-circuited their day. Justin Herbert and offensive coordinator Joe Lombardi had been flummoxed by two of the league’s completely defensive minds in again-to-again video games, however Eagles defensive coordinator Jonathan Gannon isn’t any longer in that league, regardless of a blowout snatch in Detroit. Lay the factors.

  • WHERE: GEHA Self-discipline at Arrowhead Stadium (Kansas City, Mo.)
  • WHEN: 4: 25 p.m. ET | FOX
  • SPREAD: Packers +7.5 | O/U: 48

The Chiefs are 3-15-1 in opposition to the spread in their closing 19 video games, a stretch that locations some data on the concept that of being overrated. They possess got played so continuously beneath expectations with out the expectations altering, as a minimum till this week. This game modified into as soon as a prefer ’em, at home, in opposition to a ambitious — if wrong — Packers team. The market correction modified into as soon as right here, as a minimum till Aaron Rodgers bought COVID-19. Now Kansas City’s a heavy authorized in opposition to a team that will perchance also/must always receive Davante AdamsDavid Bakhtiari and Allen Lazard again within the lineup. Jordan Adore confirmed off his skills within the preseason, and his Week 1 cameo is ample to take into consideration that ever-resourceful Matt LaFleur is a ambitious prefer to quilt that number. I feel relating to the Packers can snatch outright thanks to their substantial working game. Plus, I’m right here for the chaos that will ensue after.

  • WHERE: Heinz Self-discipline (Pittsburgh)
  • WHEN: 8: 15 p.m. ET | ESPN
  • SPREAD: Bears +6.5 | O/U: 40

Justin Fields is coming off his completely game, as is the Steelers’ protection. Pittsburgh’s offensive line is bettering at urge blocking off and Mike Tomlin is having fun with successful with out worthy abet from his passing game. I prefer to know the site of Khalil Mack and Eddie Jackson before deciding on the receive on this game. If the Bears’ protection is conclude to elephantine strength, they receive my vote to withhold this game low-scoring ample to make it inviting.
