NFL Week 8 odds, picks: Packers beat undefeated Cardinals, Browns own Steelers, Panthers beat Falcons

There’s a one hundred pc likelihood the NFL stacked the primary month of the season to make sure most pleasure and leisure. It labored out and we acquired a large quantity of wildly entertaining video games. Nearly all the primetime video games have been shut, although, so we have leaned into the thought of parity abounding.

There’s a likelihood parity is not working and the NFL is separating into huge tier splits a la MLB. We’ll have a greater thought after Sunday, after we see further big chalk and/or residence canines battle by way of. 

Sooner or later there’s going to be buyback on these big canines. The query is when. Given my observe report the final two weeks it most likely would not occur this week.

Newest Odds:

Arizona Cardinals
-6.5

The Packers huge receiver corp is devastated by Covid infections which is able to maintain Davante Adams and Allen Lazard from enjoying on this recreation. However the greater inactive difficulty is on the opposite aspect, as J.J. Watt will now miss months when he undergoes shoulder surgical procedure. Clearly he is out for this recreation and it is one thing to watch with the veteran bringing a excessive stage of play and tons of vitality to this protection. Arizona’s been nice in opposition to the run, I am curious to see how they fare in opposition to a robust run group like Inexperienced Bay with out Watt on the market. I really like this beneath quite a bit as a result of each groups are inclined to play just a little slower and the Packers ought to attempt to drag issues into the mud with out their high receiver. Aaron Jones receiving props are manner too low for his function in a recreation like this. 

The decide: Packers 24, Cardinals 21

Props, Greatest Bets: Underneath 50.5, Aaron Jones over receiving yards 35.5

Newest Odds:

New York Jets
+10.5

Look forward line was Bengals -3.5 on the Jets, however then Cincy smashed the Ravens and Zach Wilson acquired damage. Now it is flown into double figures and I am unsure yow will discover an argument exterior of “the Bengals can have an emotional letdown after final week” to take the Jets. Mike White is beginning and the Jets did not do something nicely earlier than they went to a backup QB. If Zac Taylor’s gameplan leans on working the ball an excessive amount of and never attacking a weak secondary, possibly this stays inside double digits. However Cincy ought to have the ability to title the rating if it cranks the tempo up and lets Joe Burrow hearth downfield to Ja’Marr Chase

The decide: Bengals 28, Jets 14

Props, Greatest Bets: Bengals -10.5

Newest Odds:

Buffalo Payments
-13.5

The Payments are “simply” 4-2 and it could possibly be just a little disappointing for them. Josh Allen is aware of too: he identified after falling to the Titans the Payments got here out of their bye in 2020 and did not lose one other recreation till the playoffs. Final 12 months the Payments additionally flexed on their division opponents to allow them to know the division was altering palms. Buffalo went 6-0 within the division, profitable these video games by a median of 13.8 factors for some extent differential of +83. They’re already +35 this season after whipping the Dolphins in Miami in Week 1. Issues have gotten worse for the Dolphins since — Deshaun Watson rumors are consuming this membership, the offensive line is not enjoying nicely and the protection has fallen aside relative to final 12 months. Their final three opponents have been off a bye and Buffalo is the hardest one but.

The Choose: Payments 42, Dolphins 14

Bets: Payments -13.5

Newest Odds:

Cleveland Browns
-3.5

Look, in the event you’re betting this recreation ensure you see an damage report first — Jedrick Wills and Jack Conklin are big for the Browns. Both practiced Wednesday in limited fashion after the mini bye so that they’re monitoring to be a go right here, however this recreation modifications if T.J. Watt is speeding in opposition to backups. And Cleveland can run in opposition to this Steelers protection in the event that they’re wholesome up entrance and Nick Chubb comes again. Ben Roethlisberger and Chase Claypool are additionally restricted proper now. Clearly these guys are necessary to the Steelers offense. Anticipate loads of Najee Harris and Diontae Johnson touches on this recreation.

The Choose: Browns 17, Steelers 13

Bets: Najee Harris & Diontae Johnson over receptions

Newest Odds:

Atlanta Falcons
-3

Week 8 doesn’t characteristic one of the best video games on the slate, as you may see from this recreation. The Panthers began scorching and have cratered. The Falcons began sluggish and have picked issues up. Most of it’s schedule associated — Atlanta beat the Giants, Jets and Jaguars within the final 4 weeks whereas the Panthers beat the Jets, Saints (bizarre recreation, who is aware of) and Texans within the first three weeks. The Falcons misplaced to WFT whereas the Panthers took dangerous L’s to the Eagles and Vikings at residence. The lookahead line right here was Panthers -2.5 and I believe it is a coin flip, so I am going to take the factors. This might flip right into a wild shootout or be some sort of slugfest. Something is in play right here. I am sort of tempted to play some Sam Darnold overs as a result of they’re going to be so silly low and Joe Brady badly wants an excellent recreation out of him. 

The Choose: Panthers 21, Falcons 20

Bets: Cross

Newest Odds:

Indianapolis Colts
-1

The AFC South is at stake right here. The Titans are 5-2 however what an October they’d: lose to the Jets in extra time, beat the Payments at residence in primetime after which maintain the Chiefs to a few factors. Speak about a rollercoaster. The Colts picked issues up in an enormous manner during the last three weeks and Carson Wentz is enjoying nicely. I wish to love the Titans right here however I am fearful we see Tennessee simply pound the ball into an excellent Colts defensive run entrance with Derrick Henry and never have it work out nicely after which out of the blue Indy is lobbing the ball round and Michael Pittman is catching deep balls.  

The Choose: Titans 28, Colts 24

Bets: A.J. Brown and Michael Pittman over receiving yards 

Rams at Texans

Sunday, 1 p.m. ET
TV:
FOX | Stream: fuboTV (click here)  

Newest Odds:

Houston Texans
+14.5

Betting on this recreation could be completely depending on Tyrod Taylor and whether or not or not he performs. The Texans are mildly frisky when Taylor is beneath middle and a complete trainwreck when Davis Mills is pressured to play. That is not even the rookie’s fault, it is simply inconceivable to play nicely in that state of affairs. If Taylor is again, two touchdowns could be extreme for LA right here. However, man, they’ve smoked dangerous groups in non-revenge spots and Houston is a extremely dangerous group. Perhaps the Rams look forward just a little bit with the Titans and 49ers main into the bye, however I am unable to get Matthew Stafford throwing one other landing cross in opposition to the Giants when the Rams have been up 31-3. Darrell Henderson overs are an incredible look right here, each speeding and receiving. 

The Choose: Rams 38, Texans 14

Bets: Over Darrell Henderson rush yards, receptions, receiving yards

Eagles at Lions 

Sunday, 1 p.m. ET
TV:
FOX | Stream: fuboTV (click here)  

Newest Odds:

Detroit Lions
+3.5

I am unsure I can deal with any extra brutal Dan Campbell losses. And I am fearful in regards to the Lions too. They want a W and want one fairly quickly. Two brutal late kicks killed them and so they could not take down the Rams regardless of getting an onside kick and a number of faux punts. This feels just like the spot. Philly is little doubt the higher group right here, however a big portion of their offensive success has are available in rubbish time. Jalen Hurts squats on like seven fantasy factors and one way or the other comes residence with 30 as a result of he is chucking it round and scrambling late. The Lions are rubbish time too, however that is extra of a motive to take them since you’re catching factors. 

The Choose: Lions 24, Eagles 21

Bets: Nope

Newest Odds:

Chicago Bears
+4

What a recreation that is. The 49ers final recreation was a catastrophe in a Bomb Cyclone. The Bears merely have not been good all 12 months. Their offense is a whole catastrophe. Justin Fields would not have a good likelihood behind Chicago’s offensive line. However what is going on on with the younger ability guys for San Francisco is hard to fathom. Brandon Aiyuk regarded like a budding celebrity final season and now is not getting run on offense. Trey Sermon was a third-round decide who simply would not get carries regardless of tons of accidents. And Trey Lance apparently looked “normal and spry” in practice, however is not going to start out for the 2-4 Niners. This needs to be a smash spot for the 49ers however even their most ardent supporters (hello!) need to be fearful about what’s occurring with this group. Khalil Mack is out — if Akiem Hicks can also be out I might love San Francisco right here merely due to the run recreation. 

The Choose: 49ers 24, Bears 17

Bets: Elijah Mitchell over carries and rush yards

Newest Odds:

Seattle Seahawks
-3

Geno Smith versus the Jaguars lower than seven days after we noticed Geno versus Jameis. What a world. The speedy intestine response to seeing the Seahawks as a brief residence favourite in opposition to the Jags is to imagine Seattle will roll. However, once more, Geno Smith. The very best wager right here is the beneath. City Meyer may like working greater than Pete Carroll and each coaches seemingly skew conservative right here. The one concern there may be if Jacksonville begins slinging it round late however we needs to be far sufficient beneath 40 to not fear about that. If Seattle *wished* to throw the ball in any respect, they may do it in opposition to this Jaguars secondary. However they will not. 

The Choose: Seahawks 17, Jaguars 10

Bets: Underneath 43

Newest Odds:

Los Angeles Chargers
-5

Brandon Staley off a bye? Given how rapidly he is grow to be adored by the analytics group, I am curious to see how he appears to be like in his first week after a bye. However earlier than we crown a brand new king, it is most likely greatest to pay respect to the man who’s been doing this for 20+ years. Invoice Belichick’s group is not nice. The Patriots have three wins and two are in opposition to the Jets. The opposite is in opposition to the Texans. It is not very best! The Chargers confirmed earlier than the bye they’re vulnerable to the run and the Pats like to run. The Chargers are additionally not an uptempo group, so the beneath is an efficient look right here too. It is a surprisingly massive quantity given these two groups, however it most likely elements in Belichick dropping a 50-burger on the Jets final week. If the Chargers get an enormous lead early taking the Pats is an issue however given how New England defended Justin Herbert final 12 months I am prepared to take the factors in opposition to a group with out an precise homefield benefit.

The Choose: Patriots 24, Chargers 21

Bets: Underneath 49

Newest Odds:

New Orleans Saints
+5.5

The sport of the week one way or the other includes a five-point street fave. The primary underrated facet of this recreation is it is on Halloween, within the Superdome and in prime-ish time. It is not standalone however eyeballs will likely be on it. The second underrated facet of this recreation? The Buccaneers could be taking this personally identical to they did final week. Chicago humiliated Tampa final 12 months and Devin White talked openly about it after beating the Eagles, 10 days earlier than the Week 7 matchup. The Saints swept the Bucs final 12 months and received the division. That is Drew Brees/Sean Payton 2, Tom Brady 0. There isn’t any likelihood Brady’s OK with that and now Payton would not have Brees. It is a robust setting and the Saints protection is nice however Brady is on a 2007 fashion Vengeance Tour. New Orleans goes to feed Alvin Kamara within the cross recreation right here, so look that manner for props. 

The Choose: Buccaneers 35, Saints 28

Bets: Kamara over receptions, receiving yards

Newest Odds:

Denver Broncos
-3

Have a look at this gem of a recreation. What’s superb about each of those groups is the defenses have cratered fully. Everybody anticipated each of those golf equipment to have top-10 defenses and so they’re simply not good. The over is a superb look right here with potential deep photographs in opposition to dangerous defenses and several other massive downfield playmakers like Terry McLaurin and Courtland Sutton. Jerry Jeudy again for the Broncos makes me nervous however Teddy Bridgewater did not look proper final week. There’s undoubtedly some Drew Lock risk right here and there is an excessive amount of turnover potential to again the Broncos, even at residence.

The Choose: Washington 27, Broncos 21

Bets: Over 43, Terry McLaurin over receiving yards

Sunday, 8:20 p.m. ET

Newest Odds:

Minnesota Vikings
+1.5

Large shootout potential right here regardless of the actual fact each groups wish to run the ball a ton. If the Cowboys begin firing off scores — and they need to given the dearth of the Vikings potential to cease the run — Minnesota will dive proper into cranking up the play whole if the Cowboys rating early. They’ll, as a result of this offense was averaging 39 factors per recreation within the 4 video games earlier than the bye and so they weren’t even elite in purple zone conversion. The Vikings cross offense can sling it round after they’re enticed to; in the event you get an excellent quantity on a stay over on this recreation it is an incredible wager. 

The Choose: Cowboys 38, Vikings 31

Bets: Over

Giants at Chiefs

Monday, 8:15 p.m. ET
TV: 
ESPN | Stream: fuboTV (click here)  

Newest Odds:

Kansas Metropolis Chiefs
-9.5

The Chiefs have performed the worst soccer they’ve ever performed with Patrick Mahomes and Andy Reid on the town. They usually’re nonetheless 10-point faves over the Giants on Monday Night time Soccer. I do not actually love leaping on the Giants right here however the Chiefs protection is dangerous sufficient they may simply cough up three or 4 touchdowns to Daniel Jones.

The Choose: Chiefs 24, Giants 17

Bets: TBD
