Week 9 football spread: Redskins vs. Jets, Denver at Detroit

Point spread and betting preview of the Week 9 football games Washington Redskins vs. New York Jets and Denver Broncos vs. Detroit Lions.

Week 9 football spread: Redskins vs. Jets, Denver at Detroit On Sunday the badly beaten Washington Redskins (4-3) will play the New York Jets (1-7) and we have have found some numbers you don't want to miss. At Bookmaker the Redskins are naturally the favorite to win the game with odds -200 and the Jets are dog at +170. But what you don't want to miss is the point spread on the Washington Redskins vs. NY Jets currently sitting at only -3.5 points chalk the Redskins. Washington is 1-3-1 against the spread in its last 5 games and the NY Jets are 0-5 against the spread in their last 5 games.

 Washington was badly bruised last week by the Patriots 7-52 and the shame will make them beat the Jets by at least 10 points. Whether you agree or not that the Pats are running the score doesn't matter, the Redskins will do anything to prove that they don't stink offensively and defensively. The Jets are on their five-game losing streak and have opted to substitute quarterback Chad Pennington for Kellen Clemens, but how successful this move will be is yet to be seen. Jet's wide receiver Laveranues Coles missed practice yesterday and DE Mike Devito and DT Dewayne Robertson did a limited one. Full Wednesday practice in New York had DE C.J. Mosley and safeties Abram Elam and Eric Smith. At Washington only tight end Todd Yoder was limited on Wednesday. Overall, the Washington Redskins should cover the -3.5 point spread, winning the game by 10 or 14 points.

 Let's move to Michigan where the Detroit Lions (5-2) will welcome the Denver Broncos (3-4) for a Week 9 football game. The Lions may have surprised many experts with their 5-2 record, but not us, they were part of our Week 8 football picks last week to win. But the sportsbooks continue to underestimate the Lions. At Bookmaker the Lions are listed with odds on winning the Week 9 football game at -145 and the Broncos are +125. But the point spread on the Denver Broncos vs. Detroit Lions game is currently favoring the Lions only -2.5 points, total at 46 points. Betting trends indicate that Denver is 1-8 against the spread in its last 9 games and Detroit is 6-2-1 ATS in its last 9 games.

 The Broncos lost 19-13 to the Packers last week and the Lions won on the road against the Bears to continue their push towards the playoffs. With the Lions - it's all about team work and quarterback Jon Kitna, although without a touchdown pass since Week 4, has been able to motivate and guide the team to work smooth and keep piling up the victories. Broncos will come with their seventh ranked offense in the league, but the rest of the stats find Denver towards the bottom of the NFL. Both teams have statistical chance of winning the Week 9 football game, but the Lions are more motivated, getting their first chance in a long time to reach playoffs. Overall, the Lions will beat the Broncos by 3 points.
