Week 9 in the National Football League gets rolling this evening with the undefeated Philadelphia Eagles (7-0) taking on the Houston Texans (1-5-1) deep in the heart of Texas. Simply put, it’s best vs. worst under the bright lights on prime time.
There’s a lot to take in here, but let’s meet our Week 9 TNF best bets, shall we?

Best Bet No. 1: Eagles -14 (-110)
At first thought, it may seem a bit risky to ask a road team (even one as good as the Eagles) to win by a margin of 14 points. However, there’s a reason professional oddsmakers have Philadelphia as such heavy favorites. On paper, the Eagles are the far superior football team and should have their way with the Texans all night long. This game has the potential for a complete rout in favor of the birds. After a massive win against their cross-state rivals the Pittsburgh Steelers on Sunday, I don’t see much of a letdown from the birds here by any means. Take the Eagles at -14.
Best Bet No. 2: Miles Sanders Anytime Touchdown (+100)
After failing to register a touchdown last season, Mikes Sanders has quickly reeled off five scores in 2022 out of the Eagles backfield. From a sheer statistical standpoint, Sanders has been an efficient back for the Eagles, averaging 4.9 yards per carry with 563 total yards through seven games. At plus money, this is a really solid bet for one of Philly’s most important players on offense. I have a good hunch he finds his way into the end zone this evening. Toss a few bucks on Sanders for this prop bet, folks.
Best Bet No. 3: Davis Mills Under 212.5 Passing Yards (-110)
If you read a fantasy football article this week, it will likely (strongly) advise you to “bench” Mills at all costs. A head-to-head matchup against an elite Philadelphia defense, coupled with the absence of Brandin Cooks, spells a bad matchup any way you look at it. After starting with a line of as many as 220.5, this number continues to plummet. Fortunately, I was able to lock it in at 212.5 passing yards. This prop bet is easy pickings, and then some. Ride with Davis’ under on this one, folks.
