NFL Week 8 Betting Preview

Six teams are on a bye in NFL’s Week 8. That means fewer games but no shortage of excitement, especially with some interesting interdivisional match-ups.

NFL Week 8 Betting Preview: The Match-ups

Thursday, October 24

Carolina Panthers (-6.5) at Tampa Bay Buccaneers (+6.5) 8:25 PM ET

The Panthers have a great chance of climbing above .500 for the first time all year when they face the Mike Glennon-led and Doug Martin-less Buccaneers. Carolina is 7-3 SU in its last 10 road games vs Tampa Bay, while the Bucs are 4-2 SU in their last 6 games vs the Panthers.

Bet now on the Panthers vs Bucs

Sunday, October 27

Dallas Cowboys (+3) at Detroit Lions (-3) 1:00 PM ET

After consecutive victories over division foes, the Cowboys go for a third straight win against a Lions team waiting on the availability of star receiver Calvin Johnson. Dallas is 5-2 SU in their last 7 games vs Detroit. Meanwhile, the OVER in 6-1 in Detroit’s last 7 home games. [sc:NFL240banner ]

Cleveland Browns (+7.5) at Kansas City Chiefs (-7.5) 1:00 PM ET

The Chiefs just managed to squeeze by Houston to preserve their undefeated record, but they expect a more comfortable time at home against Brandon Weeden and the struggling Browns. Kansas City is 5-1 SU in their last 6 games at home, while the UNDER is 6-2 in Cleveland’s last 8 road games.

Bet now on the Browns vs Chiefs

Miami Dolphins (+7) at New England Patriots (-7) 1:00 PM ET

Tom Brady hasn’t thrown a touchdown pass in consecutive road games. Will the friendly confines of Gillette Stadium be enough to prevent another interdivisional defeat? New England is 6-1 SU in its last 7 home games vs Miami, and the UNDER is 13-6 in Miami’s last 19 road games.

Bet now on the Dolphins vs Pats

Buffalo Bills (+12) at New Orleans Saints (-12) 1:00 PM ET

Thad Lewis was banged up last week, but he is still expected to start at quarterback for the Bills on the road against the Saints, who are fresh off a bye. New Orleans is 4-1 SU in their last 5 games at home; the OVER is 5-1 in Buffalo’s last 6 games.

Bet now on the Bills vs Saints

New York Giants (+5.5) at Philadelphia Eagles (-5.5) 1:00 PM ET

Nick Foles led the Eagles to victory in their first meeting with the Giants, but with the backup out with a concussion, Michael Vick will have to be sharp in his return. Philadelphia is 9-2 SU in their last 11 games vs NY Giants, while the UNDER is 5-2 in the NY Giants’ last 7 road games vs the Eagles.

Bet now on the Giants vs Eagles

San Francisco 49ers (-17) at Jacksonville Jaguars (+17) 1:00 PM ET

The Jaguars succeeded in covering a record spread against Denver earlier this month, one of the few successes of their season; can they do it against a smaller but still enormous spread against the Niners in London? San Francisco is 4-1 SU in its last 5 games, while Jacksonville is 1-7 ATS in its last 8 games.

Bet now on the Niners vs Jags

New York Jets (+6.5) at Cincinnati Bengals (-6.5) 4:05 PM ET

Their season trend of win one-lose one suggests that the Jets are now due for a defeat against the suddenly streaking Bengals team. The Jets are 9-1 SU in their last 10 games vs Cincinnati, but the Benglas are 6-1 SU in their last 7 games at home.

Bet now on the Jets vs Bengals

Pittsburgh Steelers (-3) at Oakland Raiders (+3) 4:05 PM ET

Between the dismal offenses (28th and 29th in the NFL in points/game), the adequate defenses and the recent trends, this game is almost guaranteed to be a low-scoring affair. The total has gone UNDER in 6 of Pittsburgh’s last 8 games, as well as in 5 of Oakland’s last 5 home games.

Bet now on the Steelers vs Raiders

Washington Redskins (+13.5) at Denver Broncos (-13.5) 4:25 PM ET

RGIII and the Redskins, who are 4-2 SU in their last 6 road games, better prepare for a Peyton Manning blowback in Mile High after their loss to the Colts. Denver is 10-1 SU in its last 11 games at home.

Bet now on the Redskins vs Broncos

Atlanta Falcons (+1.5) at Arizona Cardinals (-1.5) 4:25 PM ET

Carson Palmer (sacked 7 times, intercepted twice) was roughed up by the Seahawks defense last week. His offensive line should protect him better from the less imposing Falcons pass rush. Atlanta is 6-2 SU in their last 8 games vs Arizona, but the Cardinals are 6-1 SU in their last 7 home games vs the Falcons.

Bet now on the Falcons vs Cardinals

Green Bay Packers (-9.5) at Minnesota Vikings (+9.5) 8:30 PM ET

Green Bay is losing key receivers by the week, but the Packers still edge the Vikings in the number of competent quarterbacks. Green Bay is 6-1 SU in its last 7 games vs Minnesota, but the Vikings are 8-3 SU in their last 11 games at home.

Bet now on the Packers vs Vikings

Monday, October 28

Seattle Seahawks (-11.5) at St. Louis Rams (+11.5) 8:30 PM ET

The Seahawks defense must be licking their collective lips at the prospect of facing Rams backup Kellen Clemens with Sam Bradford done for the year. Seattle is 14-2 SU in its last 16 games vs St. Louis. Meanwhile, the UNDER is 5-1 in St. Louis’s last 6 games vs Seattle.

Bet now on the Seahawks vs Rams.
