Here at Cappers Info, we are taking a weekly look at the teams that could be ones ripe to pull off some major upsets! Check out the potentially ugly dogs that could come up and bite you in the butt in you aren't careful for NFL Week 9 for pro football betting action!

Underdog Pick #1: Arizona Cardinals (+300 at Diamond Sportsbook) @ Minnesota Vikings, Sunday, 1:00 ET: Let's be real here… Is a two win team that is in dismay really going to beat any team in the NFL, regardless of whether it is home or away, more than three out of four times? The Vikings are the easiest team to place NFL bets against this year right now, as the perception on them by the oddsmakers is still good in spite of the fact that they are potentially in shambles. HC Brad Childress could really be fired any deal now, as owner Zygi Wilf is beyond infuriated by the fact that Childress released WR Randy Moss without Wilf's consent. Arizona isn't nearly good enough this year to be a playoff team, as its offense is really just not that good. However, the Cardinals have a knack for winning games like this, as HC Ken Whisenhunt knows what it takes to beat the best teams in the league. Don't be so shocked if one of the biggest underdogs on the board this weekend ends up being the biggest barker on the weekend.

Underdog Pick #2: Seattle Seahawks (+260 at Diamond Sportsbook) vs. New York Giants, Sunday 4:05 ET: We know that the Giants have won four straight games and arguably have the hottest team in the NFL, but we are going to laugh at that right in the face. The Seahawks have one of the best home field advantages in the game, as Qwest Field is notorious for being the hardest place for an opposing team to play. Even if QB Matt Hasselbeck doesn't end up playing, we have trust that QB Charlie Whitehurst has the ability to pull off this upset. The key is going to be taking advantage of New York mistakes. The Giants haven't always been the most disciplined team this season, and if that starts to rear its ugly head this week in Seattle, bad things can happen. We know that the Seahawks aren't the better team in this game, but they are definitely going to end up winning this game at least one out of three times, even though we tend to believe that this is a 50/50 proposition.

Underdog Pick #3: Buffalo Bills (+130 at Diamond Sportsbook) vs. Chicago Bears, Sunday, 1:00 ET: You have to make the Bills underdogs every single time that they take the field, but last week, we rode with them and nearly came up with the big upset last week against the Kansas City Chiefs. It isn't quite a "home game" at Ralph Wilson Stadium, but playing in the Great White North in the Rogers Centre in Toronto is almost as important and could create an atmosphere that is even more electric. The Bears are off of their bye week, but boy, do they seem like a train wreck waiting to happen. Chicago knows that QB Jay Cutler has to take care of the football, but until RB Matt Forte ends up finding a way to average more than four yards per carry, the weight of the offense is on his shoulders. Do you want to lay -150 or so that Cutler doesn't throw a game away against a winless team that is incredibly hungry for that first 'W'? We certainly don't.

Underdog Pick #4: Detroit Lions (+180 at Diamond Sportsbook) vs. New York Jets, Sunday, 1:00 ET: Two of the best teams in the NFL in terms of covering football spreads hook up at Motown, and once again, we are taking advantage of a soft line. The Lions are still underrated by the oddsmakers, and they are incorrectly underdogs in this game. The Jets are coming off of their worst outing in years, getting shutout by the Green Bay Packers. Can the offense really recover? We do know one thing, and that's that Detroit is going to have to bring its A game to take care of the New York defense. QB Matt Stafford is back in the fold, and he has a heck of a lot of weapons. The argument could be made that the Lions have more weapons on offense than any team in the AFC East, including the New England Patriots! Giving us this type of a line on a home team that is really trying to establish itself as a legitimate playoff contender is ludicrous. Don't be shocked if the Lions roar in a huge way to make a big statement on Sunday.
