NFL Football Picks
The Niners are 6-0, but this offense looks a lot less effective since losing Kyle Juszczyk. On the other side of the ball, the Panthers have been successful despite losing Cam Newton and have played exceptionally well on defense. Can anybody slow down Christian McCaffrey? There may be an upset brewing in the Bay Area! Betting the favorite here at -5.5 will be very risky in a game where Carolina has a legit shot to win straight up.
Will the REAL Raiders please stand up! They smashed the Bears and then were ravaged by the Pack at Lambeau Field last week. The Raiders D looks like a dream matchup for QB Desean Watson, but his home stats have been questionable at best. One thing is for sure… Both of these defenses suck and there should be fireworks in this Week 8 NFL matchup!
The Seahawks look to rebound after a bad home loss against the Ravens and who better to play than the Falcons? Atlanta has just one win on the season and have dropped five straight and to make matters worse for a mediocre offense, they traded Mohamed Sanu this week to the Pats.
The Eagles should be able to shut down the Bills run game. The way you beat Philly is to attack them through the air. The problem here, is that Josh Allen has a big arm but it’s not accurate. Great spot for the Eagles to win and cover this small line!
The Jags got their third win on the campaign last week beating the winless Bengals and now face the one-win Jets who are playing on a short week. So, the Jags favored by less than a touchdown is the easy call here? Not according to Loot. Get Levinson’s take on the game and why he thinks the dog is the play in this match.
A mid season Super BOWEL! Both these teams have looked like steamy garbage as of late. Philip Rivers age is starting to catch up to him and Trubisky is looking like he can’t read NFL defenses. While Loot is predicting a cover here, it might not be a bad idea to skip betting the point spread and take a look at betting the under in a game where both teams may struggle at moving the ball.
The Cardinals have won three in a row, albeit vs. weak teams (Cin, Atl, NYG). Despite this success, the books aren’t buying that they’re good as evidenced by them being +9 dogs. Drew Brees is expected back from injury. If this happens, he’ll surely have timing issues as even an old pro can’t step in and maintain his level of play. Alvin Kamara sat out last week and will be dinged up at best as well. Arizona looks to be a live underdog wager here.
The winless Cincinnati Bengals head east to London to take on the Los Angeles Rams who smoked the Falcons last week. This game opened with the Rams being favored by -10.5 and as been bet up to -13.5 at most sportsbooks at time of print. If you made the Bungles a +13 underdog in each of their games this season they’d be 5-2 ATS. If you made the LAR a -13.5 favorite in each of their games this season they’d only have covered two of seven games. With the game being played in a neutral location. Cincinnati looks to be a live underdog!
Betting -16 favorites will send you to the poorhouse. With this game being the featured as Week 8’s TNF game, all people will be thinking about is how good Minnesota has been and how the Skins got shut out in Week 7. Washington isn’t going to just roll over. A ton has to go right for the Vikes to cover 3 scores. Nice value here with betting on Washington!
The Jets looked a whole lot better last week with Sam Darnold at the helm. Will it be enough though to stay competitive with a Pats team that keeps winning despite having a weak offensive line and a steady flow of injuries to key players? Mike gives his prediction on who covers this AFC East division rivalry.
The Lions will try and shake off their crushing loss to the Packers on Monday night when they host NFC North rival Minnesota Vikings. Charles Jay stops by to give out his thoughts on how the game will play out.
The Pokes looked like garbage last week vs. the Jets. Dallas has now dropped three in a row and is already in danger of missing the playoffs. Amari Cooper is looking doubtful for Week 7 and it may not matter even if he does play as Philly is a bad matchup for them this week. Get Keith’s prediction before placing your bets
Between the Bears preferring to run and having an excellent defense, and the Saints potentially missing Kamara this week, both teams may be “grounded” which will create clock burn and a low scoring affair. I’m not a huge fan of betting “Unders” in the 38 range, but our NFL prediction model is giving us a 33, giving the total better value than trying to determine who covers the point spread.

The Packers are on a short week after their controversial win on Monday night over its NFC North rival Lions. They’ll face a rested Raiders team who must be feeling good about themselves after beating the Bears in England in Week 5. Get Ted’s projected point spread winner.
The public is two fisting the Jaguars who are not saddled with a -3.5 handicap for their road game against the Bengals. Cincinnati hasn’t looked great, but what 0-6 team would? Predictem.com handicapper Bob Clark thinks there may be some betting value on the host. Find out why?
