NFL Around the League Week 9


As we enter another week in the National Football League it is hard not to notice that several teams are still undefeated. This is an NFL record as this is the first time that this many teams have been undefeated heading into week nine of the regular season.

One of the undefeated teams is the New England Patriots. The Patriots have been here before as they know what it’s like to face the daunting challenge of being undefeated throughout a regular season. This is one of the hardest accomplishments in the NFL and although the odds are against them, many believe that the Patriots are the team with the best chances to go undefeated. This week they take on the Washington Redskins and line makers have set this line at two touchdowns in favor of Tom Brady and the high scoring Patriots. The public is not afraid to back the Patriots as over 78% of the betting public is on the Patriots as huge home chalk this weekend.

The Denver Broncos and the Cincinnati Bengals are two of the other undefeated teams, but the most intriguing undefeated team may be the Carolina Panthers.

The Panthers have yet to lose but they are two point home underdogs to the Green Bay Packers. The Packers recently suffered their first loss of the season and will look forward to an attempt to get back on the winning track and hand the Panthers their first loss of the year.  The Panthers are off an impressive overtime win over the Indianapolis Colts on Monday night football, but will have a short week to prepare. The short line and the matchup of two very good teams make this one great game to watch and wager on.

Week nine has plenty of great games on the schedule, but the undefeated teams will draw more attention from the NFL fans and the football betting crowd.
