NFL Picks: Week 9 Thursday Night

Chargers -7.5 over Chiefs

Here is what I said about the game in the trends that I posted on Wednesday morning (At the time the Chargers were 8-point favorites):

Chiefs +8 @ Chargers

Key trends: Away underdogs are 4-1-1 on Wednesday or Thursday night this season. Eastern or central time zone teams going 2+ zones west are 5-8.

Other notes: The Chargers beat the Chiefs in week 4. The Chiefs are 0-2 against their division. The Chargers are 2-1 against their division.

This game is very difficult to pick because both teams have been bad. However, I have basically promised myself to not pick the Chiefs and their pathetic offense no matter what. Even though the Chargers are terrible, they did have a 24-point lead over Denver last time they were in primetime before their major collapse. I think the Chargers can jump out to a big advantage and hang on against Matt Cassel.

Season picks ATS: 63-51-4

Season most confident ATS: 23-18-2

Season picks straight: 73-45

    • Thanks, although it was an easy pick because the Chiefs are terrible. Shame on me for picking them to win the AFC West at the beginning of the season.
