It’s Week 9 of the NFL season and without doubt the biggest game of the early afternoon Sunday games is the Seattle Seahawks taking on the Buffalo Bills.

Both teams boast six wins, though Seattle has one less loss, and are flying high at the top of their respective divisions. A victory for either team would go a long way in their hopes for a high postseason seeding. The Seahawks currently hold the #1 seed in the NFC, but with nine games still to play they cannot afford any let-up if they want to maintain that position. It will be interesting to see what type of game this turns into, with both offenses having looked hot this season.

A same game parlay with FanDuel or PointsBet offers bettors the chance for a huge payout, and enhances the excitement of this huge matchup. You can check out our full preview of the game, which features picks on the side and total, as well as our other picks for Week 9.

Seahawks -6.5 alternate spread (+150)

Tyler Lockett to score a touchdown (+110)

Cole Beasley over 48.5 receiving yards (-110)

Under 54.5 Points (-106)

Parlay odds: +1832

A few of these picks are highly correlated, but by throwing in the under pick, the odds get a huge boost. It makes sense to add this as the total is so high that Seattle could easily cover a touchdown against some decent Buffalo offense, and we still have a game in the high 40s.

Seahawks -6.5 alternate spread (+150)

Although these teams have the same number of wins through eight weeks, I think there is a real difference in quality between these two and the superior side is no doubt Seattle. The Seahawks have been borderline unstoppable on offense, with Russell Wilson having an unbelievable season. He, along with receivers Tyler Lockett and DK Metcalf, has been tearing defenses to shreds and Seattle is averaging 34.29 points per game.

Buffalo meanwhile has dropped off considerably on offense after such a hot start to the season. After being comfortably beaten by Tennessee and Kansas City, the Bills failed to score a touchdown against the Jets before just about edging the Patriots. Josh Allen is being seriously outplayed by Wilson now, and it’s hard to see how Buffalo will keep up with Seattle’s scoring. Although they have mostly won close games, I expect Seattle to stamp their authority in this one and win by at least a touchdown.

Tyler Lockett to score a touchdown (+110)

If Seattle do put a bunch of points on the board as expected, then it is likely Tyler Lockett will be involved in the scoring. Lockett had 200 receiving yards and a trio of touchdowns in Seattle’s overtime loss to Arizona, and that was the second time this season he’s found the endzone three times. Although there have been four occasions that he hasn’t scored, I think defenses are going to start focusing on DK Metcalf a lot more which should open the door for him. It’s also worth noting that he’s averaging seven receptions a game this season, and only once has he had fewer than four catches, so he should have plenty of opportunities to put points on the board.

Cole Beasley over 48.5 receiving yards (-110)

Josh Allen is going to need to throw that ball to someone, and more often than not it winds up being Cole Beasley. The SMU product has had 45 yards or more in six of his eight games this season, and that makes him a good bet to top this 49-yard total. While the Seahawks defense is improving, it is still giving up plays against the pass and Beasley does well at going under the radar while secondaries are dealing with Stefon Diggs and John Brown. Beasley gets a ton of receptions, and just two weeks ago had 11 catches for 112 yards. Allen trusts him, and I think he’ll see a good amount of action in this one.

Under 54.5 Points (-106)

This game holds the largest total of the Week 9 slate, and even if it does turn into a bit of a shootout the under could easily still cash. As a means of enhancing this same game parlay, I think that’s the right play to make. Seattle’s defense has been slaughtered but has recently started to show signs of improvement, and looked much better during the 37-27 win over San Francisco last week. Further, Jamal Adams is set to finally make his return to the Seahawks secondary. I cannot stress how much that will improve that unit, and Adams will no doubt be motivated and eager to make a statement in his first game back. I’ve already mentioned how much the Buffalo offense has regressed recently, and they could have their struggles.

The Bills have also improved markedly on defense in the past two games, keeping the Jets to just four total offensive yards in the second half of their 18-10 win two weeks ago. They also kept the Patriots in check for the most part and made a huge fumble recovery to ice that matchup. As stated, I do think there will be a good chunk of points in this one, but 55 is a bit ask in any game so I’m taking the under.
