Jacksonville Jaguars Vs. Buffalo Bills
Leading the way with the longest odds to win in Week 9 are the Jacksonville Jaguars who took down the Buffalo Bills. The Jaguars went into the game with a 1-6 record and were going up against a Bills team that was ranked first in points scored (32.7) and lowest points allowed (14.8).

Denver Broncos Vs. Dallas Cowboys
The Dallas Cowboys NFL odds had a huge backing with 92% of bets and 87% of the handle for bets on the spread in Week 9. This comes as they were going into the game as the only undefeated team against the spread at 7-0.
They went in as 10-point favorites on the Broncos and were completely embarrassed as they lost the game 30-16 while the Broncos had just +350 odds to win.
All set and done, those that bet $100 on the Broncos to win pocketed $350.
Arizona Cardinals Vs. San Francisco 49ers
The Arizona Cardinals are the owners of the best record in the league at 8-1 following their Week 9 win on the San Francisco 49ers. However, oddsmakers listed the Cardinals with +200 odds to win being that they played without Kyler Murray and DeAndre Hopkins on offense.
Regardless, the Cardinals took care of business in blowout fashion as they won the game 31-17 behind James Conner’s heroic performance of 173 total yards and three touchdowns.
The public was left happy in this one as 85% of total bets and 66% of the betting handle were on the Cardinals to win.
Tennessee Titans Vs. Los Angeles Rams
Many were quick to count out the Tennessee Titans after the loss of Derrick Henry for an extended period. However, on Sunday Night Football against the Los Angeles Rams, they made a statement as they walked away with a 28-16 win.

Atlanta Falcons Vs. New Orleans Saints
The Atlanta Falcons have not had much going for them this season as before Week 9 they sat with a 3-4 record. In their Week 9 bout with the New Orleans Saints though, the Falcons were able to take a big win on the road with a 27-25 final score.
The Saints were favored in this one even though Trevor Siemian was the starter with Jameis Winston going down for the year in Week 8. Matt Ryan turned back the clock in this one as he led the way on offense with 343 passing yards and two touchdowns.
Some big money was laid on the Falcons odds as their +6-point spread took in 79% of the betting handle.
Cleveland Browns Vs. Cincinnati Bengals
Like the Titans, many were quick to count out the Cleveland Browns being that their chemistry was in question after they released Odell Beckham Jr. This did not seem to be a problem at all though as the Browns routed the Bengals 41-16 after going into the game with +110 odds to win.
It was Nick Chubb who led the way with 137 rushing yards and two touchdowns. Baker Mayfield also went for an efficient 66.7% completion rate for 218 yards and two touchdowns.
Many were confident on the Browns underdog scenario as they took in 60% of the moneyline betting handle and 57% of the handle on their +2.5-point spread.
While likely to be called foolish by friends, any bettor with the desire to parlay all of these together would have walked with over $150,000 on a $100 six-leg parlay.
