Some of the most important bets of a NFL Week are placed on Mondays. Here are the Week 9 NFL games I have already bet on. Odds via PointsBet.

Houston Texans vs. Miami Dolphins (-7) Total: 45.5

With the trade deadline coming up this week, this could be a very awkward game. Rumors have it that Deshaun Watson could be traded from Houston to Miami this week. If that does happen, it is a good chance Tua Tagovailoa will not be a Miami Dolphin next week. With that being said, I think we have a low-scoring game in Miami next week. I’m betting the Under. Edge: Under 45.5

Las Vegas Raiders vs. New York Giants (+3) Total: 47.5

The AFC West leading Raiders travel across the country to face the New York Giants in Week 9. The Giants at home is the ATS gift that keeps giving. Since 2019, the Giants are 6-14 ATS at MetLife stadium. The Raiders are 2-1 ATS on the road this season.

Arizona Cardinals vs. San Francisco 49ers (+2.5) Total: 46.5

This bet should be made early in the week since we are getting the Cardinals at a great number. Betting early in the week is about getting the best of the number. You will be laying more than 2.5 on Arizona later this week. Kyler Murray is 3-3-1 ATS on the road vs the NFC West. All of those games were as underdogs, and I think they will fare better as favorites. Edge: Cardinals -2.5
