NFL Week 9 Betting: Miami Dolphins at Indianapolis Colts Pick and Prediction

On Sunday afternoon – the Indianapolis Colts will host the Miami Dolphins. This is a game at the beginning of the season, many would have wrote off, but now it becomes a very important week 9 game. Both teams are 4-3, and staring at a wildcard berth in the face. The Dolphins trail New England by a game in the AFC East, while the Colts are two games behind Houston in the AFC South.

The Indianapolis Colts have been a pleasant surprise this far. Indianapolis has four wins on the season, and have yet to lose two straight all season long. The Colts are coming off a thrilling overtime win over Tennessee last week. Indianapolis is led by a rookie quarterback Andrew Luck. Luck has thrown for 1,971 yards and 8 touchdowns through the first 7 games. The Colts are 9th in passing with nearly 266 yards per game.  Indianapolis has improved on the defensive side of the ball as well, with allowing just 213 passing yards per game, which ranks 7th in the NFL. The Colts have won their four games by an average of 4 points.

For the Miami Dolphins, they have also won close games. The first win over Oakland was a blow-out, then the next two were within a score. The most recent win for Miami was a 30-9 thrashing of the Jets. Miami has also lost two games in overtime. The Dolphins are also led by a young quarterback  – Ryan Tannehill. The former Texas A+M quarterback is questionable after leaving last week’s game with an injury. The Miami running game has been anchored by Reggie Bush, with nearly 500 yards and 3 touchdowns. The Dolphins are playing their second straight road game.

Free Prediction and Pick

 This should be a very tight game. Both of these teams are used to playing close games, so it will come down to who takes care of the football better. With Tannehill being questionable, we like Andrew Luck, the top pick overall to come away with a win in this game. Do not expect alot of scoring to be done in this tilt.

Prediction: Indianapolis Colts 21-17 Miami Dolphins

 The Indianapolis Colts are actually underdogs in this game. That surprises us, as they are at home, where they have played better. The Colts are not getting alot of love, but with a win – they would be into a postseason spot halfway through the season. Look for Luck to be better than Tannehill, and Indianapolis gets a big turnover late in the game to help them win the game and move to 5-3. We are betting the Indianapolis Colts, as the underdog to win the game.

Pick: Indianapolis Colts +1



NFL Week 8 Betting: New York Giants at Dallas Cowboys Pick and Prediction

The New York Giants travel to the Big D to take on the Dallas Cowboys. The Giants and Cowboys have already played once this season; in the opening game of the season, with the Cowboys coming away with the win on the road. Both of these teams compete out of the NFC East, where New York holds a 1.5 game lead on the rest of the division. At 5-2, they lead Dallas, Washington and Philadelphia, who are 3-3. The Giants are coming off a big win over Washington, while Dallas beat the Carolina Panthers last weekend.

The Cowboys are going to have to take care of the football if they want any chance at repeating Opening Night. The Cowboys turn the ball over way too much, which burns them in the end. Dallas passes the ball pretty well; averaging 277 yards per game via the air. The Cowboys defense has been pretty good against the pass as well; yielding 187.3 yards per game. Dallas is led by Miles Austin, who has four touchdown receptions and Dez Bryant, with 2.

The New York Giants are playing pretty good football right now. New York has won three in a row since a road loss at Philadelphia. The Giants are third in the NFL in passing yards with 295.3 yards per game.  Victor Cruz has seven touchdown receptions, while the running back combination of Ahmad Bradshaw and Andre Brown have eight combined scores. The Giants have yet to take their bye, as they will host Pittsburgh and play at Cincinnati the following two weekends.

Free Prediction and Pick

New York has Eli Manning on their side. He is a much better and poised quarterback than Tony Romo. Victor Cruz is emerging into a top notch receiver, and Ahmad Bradshaw continues to run the football well. New York is the team to beat out of the NFC East, and as defending Super Bowl champions, in maybe all of football. We expect the Giants to roll in this game by two touchdowns.

Prediction: New York Giants 31-17

As you can see with our prediction – we have no faith in the Dallas Cowboys covering such a small spread. We feel like New York is going to come out with a chip on their shoulder in this game and blow-out Dallas. The Giants are a much better football team on both sides of the ball. In the end, New York runs away with this game in a laugher, which means New York -1.

Pick: New York Giants -1
