Schwartz’s Trench Report: Why I’m Riding the Seahawks’ O-line, More Week 9 NFL Bets

Nov 04, 2018 9:05 PM EDT
  • Former NFL lineman Geoff Schwartz offers his best Week 9 NFL bets based on the battles up front.
  • He's picking a side in the Falcons-Redskins game and the Chargers-Seahawks matchup.

We’re back for Week 9 of the Trench Report. It’s the only place you’ll find gambling advice based on the battle in the trenches between the offensive and defensive lines.

Looking at the schedule, there aren’t many major advantages on the board in regards to line play, but I’ve targeted a two interesting matchups.

Atlanta Falcons at Washington Redskins

Spread: Redskins -1.5
Over/Under: 48
Time: 1 p.m.
TV channel: FOX

The Redskins have some at home for many reasons, including the resurgence of Adrian Peterson. I thought his age had doomed him, but he’s proving me and all the doubters wrong every weekend.

Peterson is averaging 4.6 yards per attempt with two games eclipsing 100 rushing yards. He has at least 90 yards on the ground in five of his seven games this season. Their offensive line has continued to gel this season and played through some injuries.
