The 49ers are the only undefeated left in the NFL after the Patriots lost to Baltimore in week 9.

Favorites finished week 9 with a 7-7 ATS record, but dogs are still 76-57-2 ATS (57.14%) this season. It looks like week 10 could be profitable for dogs again based on the opening point spreads.

This is a short week, as DEN, NE, PHI, WAS, JAX and HOU are all on byes.

Check out the latest betting trends through week 9 of the NFL season:

•    Favorites: 8-6 SU and 7-7 ATS (Season: 84-50-1 SU and 57-76-2 ATS)
•    Favorites of 7 or more: 2-0 SU and 1-1 ATS (Season: 32-4 SU and 19-17 ATS)

•    Home Underdogs: 5-2 SU and 6-1 ATS (Season: 14-30-1 SU and 23-22 ATS)

Home dogs had a great week, going 5-2 SU and 6-1 ATS. Only the Giants failed to cover ATS at home as an underdog in week 9 on MNF. This week there are five home dogs at the time of publishing.

Through week 9 there have been 65 overs and 70 unders.


1. New Orleans Saints

SB LIV Odds: +450
Record: 7-1 (6-2 ATS)
Previous Rank: 2

The Saints are coming off a bye and should get some players back in the fold for week 10. If NO can get healthy down the stretch, they have a shot at winning the Super Bowl this season.


2. Los Angeles Rams

SB LIV Odds: +2000
Record: 5-3 (6-2 ATS)
Previous Rank: 4

The Rams travel to Heinz Field after a week 9 bye to play the surging Steelers. One area LAR need to improve upon is the run game (97.2 RYPG - 20th) if they want to keep pace in the crowded NFC West.


3. New England Patriots

SB LIV Odds: +250
Record: 8-1 (6-3 ATS)
Previous Rank: 1

NE finally lost a game. The Ravens dominated the Patriots (37-20), but sometimes a loss like this will help refocus a team. They also have a bye week to try and make some adjustments.


4. Green Bay Packers

SB LIV Odds: +1100
Record: 7-2 (6-3 ATS)
Previous Rank: 3

GB looked terrible in a loss to LAC (26-11). Rodgers only threw for 161 yards. It looked like he was trying to force the football to Adams who was back from injury. However, the entire team played poorly.


5. Arizona Cardinals

SB LIV Odds: +40000
Record: 3-5-1 (6-3 ATS)
Previous Rank: 8

The Cardinals played tough on TNF, but fell just short against SF (28-25), however they covered ATS easily. Drake made his ARI debut and he gained 110 rushing yards (1 TD) on just 15 carries.


6. San Francisco 49ers

SB LIV Odds: +650
Record: 8-0 (5-3 ATS)
Previous Rank: 5

SF are scoring 29.4 PPG (3rd), while only allowing 12.8 PPG (2nd). The Niners also rank #2 in sacks per game (3.8). The Niners aren’t just winning, they’re playing great on both sides of the football.


7. Buffalo Bills

SB LIV Odds: +4000
Record: 6-2 (5-3 ATS)
Previous Rank: 10

Buffalo didn’t need to do much to win and cover ATS when they hosted the Redskins (24-9). It was a great sign to see Singletary (20 carries for 95 yards and 1 TD) lead the Bills RBs instead of Gore.


8. Dallas Cowboys

SB LIV Odds: +1800
Record: 5-3 (5-3 ATS)
Previous Rank: 12

The Cowboys had a slow start on MNF, but they rallied late to easily cover against NYG (37-18). Zeke gained 139 yards on the ground, while Prescott threw 3 TDs after throwing an INT on his first throw.


9. Pittsburgh Steelers

SB LIV Odds: +5000
Record: 4-4 (5-3 ATS)
Previous Rank: 11

The Steelers are back in the playoff picture after winning three games in a row. The defense forced 3 turnovers in the game and Samuels played great at RB with Conner and Snell sidelined.


10. Carolina Panthers

SB LIV Odds: +4000
Record: 5-3 (5-3 ATS)
Previous Rank: 15

It’s being reported that Newton could miss several more weeks. Allen hasn’t been bad, but Newton is better. In week 9, the Panthers defeated TEN (30-20) thanks to McCaffrey’s 3 TD performance.


11. Oakland Raiders

SB LIV Odds: +8000
Record: 4-4 (5-3 ATS)
Previous Rank: 13

Jacobs looks like the frontrunner to win OROY after another big game (120 rushing yards and 2 TDs) in a win over DET (31-24). The Raiders need to keep winning if they want to make the playoffs, though.


12. Indianapolis Colts

SB LIV Odds: +2800
Record: 5-3 (4-3-1 ATS)
Previous Rank: 6

Brissett was injured in the loss to PIT and Hoyer had to step in. Brissett will be a game time decision this week, but expect the Colts to be cautious with him, as Indy hosts the Dolphins in week 10.


13. Kansas City Chiefs

SB LIV Odds: +900
Record: 6-3 (5-4 ATS)
Previous Rank: 16

The Chiefs earned a tough win against MIN (26-23) as home dogs without Mahomes. Mahomes will likely play in W10. I’m still worried about this DEF, as they allow 22.7 PPG (18th) and 369.3 YPG (22nd).


14. Houston Texans

SB LIV Odds: +2500
Record: 6-3 (5-4 ATS)
Previous Rank: 17

The Texans have won two in a row, including a W9 win against JAX (26-3). However, the schedule will get tougher after this week’s bye, as HOU play BAL, IND and NE their next three games.


15. Minnesota Vikings

SB LIV Odds: +2200
Record: 6-3 (5-4 ATS)
Previous Rank: 12

Minny is a team to bet on when they’re playing teams in the bottom-half of the standings. However, any time they play a tough team they find a way to lose like they did in W9 against KC.


16. Denver Broncos

SB LIV Odds: +25000
Record: 3-6 (5-4 ATS)
Previous Rank: 18

DEN started Allen at QB and picked up a win against CLE (24-19). Allen did what he had to do to get the win and the run game helped him out by gaining 127 rushing yards and 1 TD on 20 carries.


17. Jacksonville Jaguars

SB LIV Odds: +15000
Record: 4-5 (5-4 ATS)
Previous Rank: 9

The Jags offense did nothing in London and lost to HOU. Minshew lost two more fumbles and he now has 11 lost fumbles, which leads the league. It’s hard to win when your QB can’t hold the ball.


18. Detroit Lions

SB LIV Odds: +10000
Record: 3-4-1 (4-4 ATS)
Previous Rank: 14

Detroit have lost 4 of 5 games and have lost a lot of ground in the wild card race. Unless the Lions can go on an extended winning streak their season is over. They really needed to beat OAK.


19. Miami Dolphins

SB LIV Odds: +500000
Record: 1-7 (4-4 ATS)
Previous Rank: 19

The Dolphins actually won a game against the lowly Jets (26-18). Fitzpatrick threw 3 TDs in the win and Miami are now on a 4-0 ATS run. Can they upset the banged up Colts this Sunday?


20. Seattle Seahawks

SB LIV Odds: +2500
Record: 7-2 (4-5 ATS)
Previous Rank: 21

Wilson is having an MVP-caliber season and he’s coming off of a 5 TD performance in a win over TB (40-34). Lockett and Metcalf both scored TDs and had 120+ receiving yards each.


21. Philadelphia Eagles

SB LIV Odds: +1600
Record: 5-4 (4-5 ATS)
Previous Rank: 22

Philly have won two in a row after edging the Bears (22-14). Wentz struggled, but the Eagles were able to gain 146 rushing yards (1 TD). If the Eagles want to make the playoffs they need Wentz to step up.


22. Los Angeles Chargers

SB LIV Odds: +6600
Record: 4-5 (3-4-2 ATS)
Previous Rank: 26

LAC have now won two consecutive games and aren’t out of the playoff race yet. They need to get the run game going (79.4 RYPG - 28th), which they did in W9, as they had 159 rushing yards (2 TDs).


23. Baltimore Ravens

SB LIV Odds: +1000
Record: 6-2 (3-5 ATS)
Previous Rank: 27

The Ravens have won 4 games in a row and now rank #1 in points scored (31.4 PPG). If the secondary can continue improving, the Ravens are going to be among the teams contending for the SB.


24. Cincinnati Bengals

SB LIV Odds: +250000
Record: 0-8 (3-5 ATS)
Previous Rank: 25

Cincy are still winless and that’s unlikely to change this week against the Ravens. They’re coming off a bye and have decided to bench Dalton in favor of starting rookie Finley.


25. Tennessee Titans

SB LIV Odds: +12500
Record: 4-5 (3-5-1 ATS)
Previous Rank: 20

Tannehill struggled in the loss to CAR and he threw 2 INTs to 1 TD. He’s playing better than Mariota, but it’s clear the Titans need to figure out the QB position before heading into next season.


26. New York Giants

SB LIV Odds: +75000
Record: 2-7 (3-6 ATS)
Previous Rank: 23

The G-Men looked good early against DAL, but a rough ending to the 1H crushed them. Jones had 2 fumbles and 1 INT. He now has 10 lost fumbles, which is tied for second-worst in the league.


27. Washington Redskins

SB LIV Odds: +200000
Record: 1-8 (3-6 ATS)
Previous Rank: 24

Haskins struggled against the Bills and it was clear the Redskins didn’t want to give him free reign. The one positive in the game was that Haskins didn’t turn the football over.


28. Chicago Bears

SB LIV Odds: +12500
Record: 3-5 (2-6 ATS)
Previous Rank: 28

The Bears have lost four games in a row and are a complete mess. Trubisky is likely gone after this season. CHI are only averaging 17.8 PPG (27th), 186.2 PYPG (30th) and 80.5 RYPG (27th) on offense.


29. Tampa Bay Buccaneers

SB LIV Odds: +40000
Record: 2-6 (2-6 ATS)
Previous Rank: 30

The Bucs lost ATS again, this time to SEA, but the game was close. The defense was unable to stop Wilson, however, the offense played one of their best games of the entire season.


30. Cleveland Browns

SB LIV Odds: +12500
Record: 2-6 (2-6 ATS)
Previous Rank: 29

Cleveland couldn’t even beat the Broncos who were starting a rookie QB in his first game. CLE are a mess and I’m sure we’re going to start seeing some frustrations out of players down the stretch.


31. Atlanta Falcons

SB LIV Odds: +75000
Record: 1-7 (2-6 ATS)
Previous Rank: 32

The Falcons are coming off a bye and they have a tough game at NO this week. The Falcons have way too much talent to be a 1-7 team, but it’s clear this team needs to retool the defense.


32. New York Jets

SB LIV Odds: +100000
Record: 1-7 (2-6 ATS)
Previous Rank: 31

Darnold isn’t getting it done. Bell has been terrible and now may be injured. The Jets were hyped up during the preseason, but they’ve shown us they’re not nearly ready to compete after losing to MIA.
