The Week 9 NFL schedule will go a long way toward determining whether the New England Patriots can go undefeated and whether the Miami Dolphins will go winless. New England is a 3.5-point favorite at 5-2 Baltimore on Sunday Night Football, with the Ravens coming off a bye and boasting a strong running game that could give Bill Belichick fits. Miami, meanwhile, hosts a 1-6 Jets team as merely a field-goal underdog. according to the latest NFL odds. With Ryan Fitzpatrick keeping the Dolphins in games lately and covering three straight, this could be their best chance for an outright win. Fans everywhere will be making NFL picks on these games and locking in their NFL predictions soon. Before you make any NFL parlays, you need to see the Week 9 NFL expert picks and bets from legendary handicapper Hammerin’ Hank Goldberg.

A beloved national treasure, Hammer is 24-15 on his NFL best bets dating to last season. Already twice this season, Hammer swept his NFL best bets. Anyone who parlayed those picks was rewarded with 6-1 payouts.

This is the same handicapper who enjoyed 15 winning seasons in his 17-year ESPN run. In 2017, Hammer competed against 10 top handicappers in the Las Vegas Review-Journal’s NFL Challenge and beat them all, finishing 50-29-6 on NFL picks against the spread. Anyone who has followed him is way up. 

Now, Hammer has locked in his top three NFL Week 9 bets. We can tell you he is backing the Buccaneers (+6) at Seattle, despite Tampa Bay entering on a three-game skid.

“Seattle’s defense is poor, and this is a team Jameis Winston can actually have a decent game against,” Hammer told SportsLine. “The Seahawks only have 13 sacks. They’re 0-4 against the spread at home with two outright losses. Plus, Seattle just lost its center, Justin Britt, to a season-ending injury. Take the points.”

CenturyLink Field used to be a house of horrors for visitors, but in Seattle’s last two home games, the Seahawks lost by two touchdowns to the Ravens and would have lost to the Rams if not for a missed field goal as time expired.

Goldberg also has a strong take on Packers vs. Chargers, and an especially confident play on Patriots vs. Ravens, the must-see showdown of the week. The line is way off in that game, Hammer said. He’s only sharing who to back at SportsLine.
