Nfl Week 8 Betting Lines, Picks & Tips
Allen’s odds were +450 last week but are now +500 ahead of Week 7. Despite putting together a phenomenal performance on Monday night, Josh Allen and the Bills came up short against the Titans and the fourth-year quarterback is no longer the MVP front-runner. If Herbert can bounce back and somehow win MVP, you could fatten your wallet by betting on him now. Ahead of Week 6, Chargers quarterback Justin Herbert was +700 to win MVP. If each of the top-performing quarterbacks stays at their own current pace, the MVP race toward the end of the regular season should be as entertaining as ever.

Seattle is rested off the bye and Arizona is coming off a short week having played on Monday. Dallas still has the third-ranked offense in the NFL, but those numbers are skewed not find out here that Dak Prescott is no longer under center. After allowing another nearly 40 point performance by the opposing team, Dallas officially has the 32nd ranked defense in the league. New Orleans is off a bye week and only once has scored less than 30. The Panthers’ defense isn’t very stingy, and while Carolina struggled against Chicago’s defense, the Saints defense isn’t nearly as tough as the Bears. This has all the makings of a shootout and it’s a massive game in the NFC South division race.
Sports Betting 101 Ep 15: My Week 9 Nfl Early Bets
In their road win over the Browns in Week 6, the Cards leaned on Murray, who passed for 229 yards and four touchdowns without an interception on 20/30 completions. Houston’s defense will be stretched to the limit by Arizona’s receiving corps that features a resurgent AJ Green, Christian Kirk, DeAndre Hopkins, and newcomer tight end Zach Ertz. The road team is 4-1 ATS in the last 5 meetings, although the Bengals have covered 5 of their last 7 in Baltimore. This is one of many games where there is a considerable home favorite. It’s hard to bet against Baltimore right now as they are looking like one of the best teams in the league, although we just saw the Titans takedown the Bills on MNF.
New England won last year, 16-3, at Sports Authority Field at Mile High in Denver. Coming off big wins a week ago, both Houston and Baltimore are still alive, even if barely, in the AFC postseason race. The Texans moved to 4-6 with their first win in four weeks when they beat Arizona, 31-21, last Sunday. Quarterback Tom Savage finally was competent enough to lead Houston to a victory, the first since starter Deshaun Watson went down with a knee injury.
New Orleans Saints At Washington Football Team
With that notion in mind, I still struggle to understand the reasoning that Kansas City is favored 5.5 points on the road and against arguably the best team in the AFC. The Tennessee Titans delivered their biggest win of the season on Monday Night Football last week with a victory over the Buffalo Bills. Running back Derrick Henry once again carried the Titans’ offense against the top scoring defense in Buffalo. Henry rumbled for 143 yards with three touchdowns, and the Titans defense pulled together a goal-line stop as time expired. When Jon Gruden was dismissed as head coach last week, it was as if a weight was lifted off the Las Vegas Raiders’ shoulders.
If they can’t slow down the Rams, Rodgers and the offense will have to be prepared for a shootout. Brees has plenty of weapons on a Saints offense that averages 34.0 points per game, second-best in the league. Wide receiver Michael Thomas is Brees’ top target with 53 catches and 588 yards.
Quarterback Philip Rivers is enjoying a fantastic season with 3,951 passing yards and 31 touchdowns. His leading receiver is once again Keenan Allen who has 88 catches for 1,074 yards and six touchdowns. With 802 yards, Gordon is the team’s leading rusher, but he hasn’t played in the last three games.
The Panthers are 27th in the NFL yielding 25.7 points per game. Last year’s league MVP Cam Newton has been beat up all year and has just 18 touchdown passes and five scores on the ground. The Panthers will head to Tampa on Sunday where the Bucs have the slimmest chance of making the postseason. The Packers’ offense will go up against possibly the hottest defense in the NFL right now.
