NFL Week 9 picks, predictions:

The Arizona Republic: Commanders 21, Vikings 20

Jeremy Cluff writes:" The Commanders are just finding ways to win. We think they can beat the Vikings in Week 9 to win their fourth game in a row." Bet the Vikings on the moneyline vs. Commanders

Bill Speros writes: "The Vikings can spread the ball, score, and boast the most balanced team west of Philadelphia in the NFC. The Vikings are a soft 3-4 ATS, but they are a small favorite here on the road. However, the juice on the line is too high. Just roll with the moneyline here."

Draft Kings: Take the Commanders with the points vs. Vikings

It writes: "Can Taylor Heinicke do it again? The Vikings are 6-1, and have proven themselves as a good team, but they don’t have a signature win against a top opponent. Their only loss was 24-7 to the undefeated Eagles. Washington could make this game pretty ugly at home and keep it close enough for Heinicke to perform some of his wizardry."

Fan Duel: Go with the Commanders with the points vs. Vikings

Isaiah De Los Santos writes: "Oddsmakers and ESPN's FPI both see this being a close contest, but have Minnesota ultimately pulling it out. I'm in agreement that Washington could make this a serious game. The Vikings' offense hasn't been as explosive as expected, which means the Commanders should be able to play their grindy, run-first style of football and keep Minnesota's playmakers off the field. The Commanders' defense has stepped up in recent weeks as well, allowing 21 points or fewer in each of their last three contests. I like Commanders +3 (-115) here with the Vikings' offense being a tad inconsistent so far."
