NFL Week 9 picks, predictions:

The Arizona Republic: Bengals 24, Panthers 16

Jeremy Cluff writes: "The Panthers have been playing better, but we don't see them upsetting the Bengals in Cincinnati." Bet the Bengals to cover vs. Panthers

Bill Speros writes: "Cats and Kittens. The Panthers reached their season peak with that wild win over Tampa Bay in Week 7. Carolina had the Falcons beat in Week 8 after P.J. Walker dropped a 62-yard TD strike on D.J. Moore with 12 seconds to play. But Moore took his helmet off after the play while celebrating and cost his team 15 yards on the PAT attempt. Eddy Piñeiro would miss that kick, and another that would have won it in overtime. The Bengals are in Super Bowl Return mode."

Draft Kings: Take the Panthers with the points vs. Bengals

It writes: "Carolina has been playing well despite dealing Christian McCaffrey and Robbie Anderson, although more trades could be on the way. The Panthers aren’t the better team but they should be able to keep the Bengals close, especially if Ja’Marr Chase is ruled out of this game."

Fan Duel: Go with the Bengals to cover vs. Panthers

Isaiah De Los Santos writes: "The Bengals enter this matchup as big favorites according to oddsmakers and ESPN's FPI for good reason. This offense has finally found its rhythm, putting up 27-plus points in four of their last five outings. Though the loss of Ja'Marr Chase hurts, Tee Higgins, Tyler Boyd and Joe Mixon are all capable of picking up the slack. With a top-ranked defense to boot, Cincinnati should overpower a Panthers team with one real offensive weapon left in DJ Moore after the Christian McCaffrey trade."
