The Las Vegas Raiders are back after the week off and we’re back with our writers and fan community 2021 NFL Season Pick ‘Em challenge at Silver and Black Pride is on for Week 9.

Here are the Week 9 odds from our friends at DraftKings Sportsbook. Live odds are available for tonight’s game as well, and the opening line is Colts -10 and the total set at 45.5.

For those interested, the Raiders are 3.5-point favorites against the New York Giants this weekend with 46 as the O/U over on DraftKings Sportsbook.

After a total of 94 possible contests, here is the writer’s standing:

  1. Matt Holder 77-45-0 (63%)
  2. Bill Williamson 76-46-0 (62%)
  3. BD Williams 71-51-0 (58%)
  4. Marcus Johnson 63-46-0 (58%)

Somehow every week I manage to cling onto first place. I’m still ahead by a game as a 6-9 week from Bill gave me some help, but going sub .500 (7-8) isn’t going to cut it for the rest of the season. Marcus and BD had a solid week though. They both went 9-6, however, they both have some catching up to do.

Fan Community Leaderboard

The three-way tie for first place was broken but the fans still have four people within one game of each other, six within one and eight that are two behind, so it’s still very much a tight race that will come down to the wire.

It was a down week for most of the leaders as Ren Hoek was able to pull away with just eight correct picks, meaning the majority of the leaderboard from last week went below .500. Shoutout to Raiderfan35 for working his/her way into the top-8 after putting together 10 correct picks, but our Week 8 winner was torindorn4life with 11 out of 15 winners.

L.A. Raider and RaiderRich25 were the other two people with 10 correct picks so it was a good week to have ‘Raider’ in your team name. I’ll have to note that moving forward.
