Beating the Book: Chris Liss Handicaps Week 9
Beating the Book: Chris Liss Handicaps Week 9

This article is part of our Beating the Book series.

Finally a strong week (11-4 overall, 4-1 in the Super Contest), though I lost my best bet (Jets.) I still have a big hole out of which to dig, but at least the exit is visible again. 

This week, I especially like the Redskins (if Case Keenum plays), and I also have a good feeling about the Ravens, Eagles and Raiders. I feel shakiest about the Broncos.

THURSDAY NIGHT

49ers -10 at Cardinals

I wanted to be on the Niners, but I made this line only 7.5, so the Cardinals it is. Maybe San Francisco blows them out, but this is a huge road number on a short week against a team that's not a total doormat. Take the points. 

49ers 23 - 16

LONDON GAME

Texans -2 vs Jaguars

I had the Jaguars as 2.5-point favorites because I didn't realize the game was in London. Take away the home-field advantage, and it's closer to a pick 'em, so I'm taking the points. 

Texans 20 - 19

EARLY GAMES

Redskins +9.5 at Bills

With Case Keenum at quarterback, I had this line at 6.5, so I'm on Washington. Keenum has 10 days to recover from his concussion Thursday night, so I'm hoping he can make it back. If Dwayne Haskins were starting, I'd probably have this line right about 9.5, but either way I'll take the points. 

Bills 20 - 13

Titans +4
