NFL Week 8 Betting Picks
Both undefeated teams fell in massive upsets in Week 6, Could a Week 7 slate highlighted by a Dolphins-Eagles matchup provide us with some more chaos?
Let’s take a look at the early Week 8 odds and which bets to place early.
Washington Commanders (+6) vs. Philadelphia Eagles
The Commanders won’t come close to being favored against the Eagles in Week 8, even at home, but this line could draw a bit closer based on Week 7 results. Washington is set up well for a win over the Giants, with New York missing Daniel Jones again and the Commanders’ defensive line in line to feast on a broken Giants offensive line.
For the Eagles, Week 7 will be a loss if they play anything like they have in recent weeks. Philadelphia is facing a loaded Dolphins offense – even at home, there has to be concern about the Eagles after Jalen Hurts struggled so mightily against the Jets last week.
Can Hurts keep up with Tua Tagovailoa and that dominant receiving duo? The Eagles won’t be viewed as untouchable if they lose, and a road matchup with the Commanders – who took them to overtime earlier in the month – suddenly might not look so simple.
Cincinnati Bengals (+6) vs. San Francisco 49ers
The 49ers have been extremely difficult to beat at Levi’s Stadium, but the Bengals don’t have to win to cover this spread. With Deebo Samuel and Christian McCaffrey among San Francisco’s injury concerns at the moment, it’s possible this line narrows a bit as the game approaches.
The Vikings’ passing game will look to outplay Brock Purdy, who could have a more limited supporting cast in Week 7, and a close game there in Minnesota could allow some more doubts about the 49ers to creep in.
The Bengals, meanwhile, can’t do anything to hurt themselves on their bye. Cincinnati looked much more like itself in the two weeks leading into the bye, and an extended break should help Joe Burrow get healthier. The Bengals are no stranger to playing well in tough environments and can keep this game within a few points at the very least.
Seattle Seahawks (-1.5) vs. Cleveland Browns
This line won’t shift too far in the Seahawks’ favor because the Browns’ defense is so talented, but it certainly can move in Seattle’s direction after Week 7. The Seahawks have what should be a pretty simple matchup with the Cardinals. Already favored by more than a touchdown, it’s a nice soft landing spot for a team that is looking to bounce back from a close loss in Cincinnati.
The Browns are favored as well this week, but they’re at risk of disappointing in Indianapolis. Nobody seems to know how close to 100 percent Deshaun Watson is right now, and the offense has been totally hit-or-miss even when he’s in the lineup.
Disappointment against a gritty Colts team would lessen the shine from the Browns’ win over the 49ers and make the Seahawks a clearer favorite here.
Baltimore Ravens (-7) vs. Arizona Cardinals
You can still get this line at -7, and that’s worth a close look before the Cardinals likely drop to 1-6 against the Seahawks.
Three of the Ravens’ four wins have come by more than seven points, the only exception being a win over the Bengals in Cincinnati. Baltimore has learned how to take care of business against most inferior opponents and do it stress-free. With the lack of talent on the Cardinals’ roster, the Ravens likely don’t have to be at their best to win comfortably.
How much can this line move after Week 7? That’s up in the air, as the Ravens are far from a sure thing against the surging Lions. A win over Detroit, however, would solidify Baltimore as a team farther away from the Cardinals’ level than a -7 line indicates.
