2014 NFL Season - Week 9: Win, Spread, Over/Under and Game Score Predictions

Welcome Back to The Sports Savant's Weekly NFL Picks 2014: Week 9 Edition!

This is quite possibly the hottest I've ever been on my picks since I began picking all of the NFL games in 2011.  I am on a tear that any Vegas bookie can admire.  Last week, I went a blistering 12-3(.800) picking the winner and an even more impressive 10-5(.667) in both the spread and over/under picks for all of the games in Week 8.

To add to the madness, I predicted Six Perfect Team Scores and had a personal record Eight Trifectas in Week 8 and topped it all off with a Perfect Game Score, predicting the exact outcome of the Jaguars v. Dolphins game.  The hot week added to my already scorching hot run picking the winners to 78-42-1(.650) and against the spread to a phenomenal 68-51-2(.571) this season.  Let's see if The Sports Savant can keep up this torrid pace of wins going into Week 9!
