NFL Week 8 betting

There have been several noticeable line changes when looking at NFL Week 8 odds. The Titans were initially -3.5 favorites at the Texans but following the news that Tennessee QB Ryan Tannehill would miss the game due to injury and illness, Houston was installed as a -1 favorite at several books. Meanwhile, Aaron Rodgers’ Packers are now a whopping +10.5 underdog at Buffalo with the Bills coming off a bye. Green Bay fell to the Commanders this past Sunday, 23-21. Washington’s victory, combined with the Indianapolis Colts’ offensive futility and subsequent benching of Matt Ryan, has put the Commanders as +3 underdogs at Indy. The Commanders had been a +6 underdog initially.

Here are those line changes and other spreads that jump when looking at the lines on Sunday morning:

  • Cardinals +6.5 at Vikings -6.5 to Cardinals +3.5 at Vikings -3.5
  • Raiders PK at Saints PK to Raiders -1 at Saints +1
  • Commanders +6 at Colts -6 to Commanders +3 at Colts -3
  • 49ers +2.5 at Rams -2.5 to 49ers -1 at Rams +1
  • Packers +8.5 at Bills -8.5 to Packers +10.5 at Bills -10.5
  • Giants +1.5 at Seahawks -1.5 to Giants +3.5 at Seahawks -3.5
  • Titans -3.5 at Texans +3.5 to Titans +1 at Texans -1

Baltimore Ravens +2 at Tampa Bay Buccaneers

The Ravens had been favored on the road at some sportsbooks earlier in the week but the line closed with Lamar Jackson and friends as +2 underdogs. Baltimore wound up rewarding its backers as it came away with a 27-22 win. The game went Over the 46.5 point total.

John Harbaugh’s crew is now 3-4-1 against the spread this season while Tom Brady’s Buccaneers fell to 2-6-0, the worst ATS mark in the NFL.

Denver Broncos at Jacksonville Jaguars

The Broncos played fairly well behind backup Brett Rypien but Denver ultimately fell to the Jets by a 16-9 score. Jacksonville lost their fourth in a row as they fell to the Giants by a 23-17 score.   

Russell Wilson missed Sunday’s game with a hamstring injury but he is on track to play in this contest according to head coach Nathaniel Hackett’s comments Monday. The Broncos didn’t look markedly different with Rypien under center and Jerry Jeudy was able to muster his best game since the first week of the season (7-96). Whether the 2-5 Broncos can take advantage of an equally struggling team in Jacksonville remains to be seen but they should have a chance of running a balanced attack.

The Jags’ offense looked like an improved bunch early in the season under Doug Pederson. But four consecutive losses – three which saw them score 21 points or fewer – have made the early success a distant memory. Travis Etienne was already moving into a true lead-back role after James Robinson went without a carry Sunday, and he’s now the unquestioned leader of the backfield following his teammate’s trade to the Jets on Monday. The dynamic second-year player could find success against a Denver defense that allowed 155 rushing yards to the Jets despite Breece Hall’s early exit with his season-ending knee injury. 

The Jags opened the week as 3.5-point favorites in this neutral-field battle. But if Wilson’s return is confirmed later in the week there could certainly be movement.

Carolina Panthers at Atlanta Falcons

The Panthers pulled off a shocking upset of the Buccaneers Sunday and the fact they held Tom Brady without a touchdown pass made the 21-3 win all the more noteworthy. Atlanta, meanwhile, ran into a runaway locomotive of a Bengals offense as they fell to Cincy by a 35-17 margin.  

Interim coach Steve Wilks made one heck of a case to keep the top job on a long-term basis with Sunday’s victory. The game saw P.J. Walker continue to show improved ball security and toss two TD passes. He now has the challenge of making sure his team stays up for a second consecutive divisional rival, one that they’ll aim to exploit through the air after Joe Burrow racked up 481 yards and three touchdowns against Atlanta.

Carolina looks like it will be able to attack plenty on the ground as Chuba Hubbard (ankle) and D’Onta Foreman combined for 181 rushing yards versus Tampa Bay.

Atlanta is still 3-4, but the defense’s weaknesses has the potential to send them into freefall, especially with an offense that can’t achieve consistency week-to-week. Kyle Pitts continues to be a near non-factor most weeks and Drake London saw just one target Sunday despite Atlanta falling behind right from the jump. The Panthers are allowing 120.9 rushing yards per game, however, so Arthur Smith could still opt to go with another run-heavy approach in this spot. 

Carolina remains a heavy underdog in this spot with the Falcons checking in as 6-point home favorites to open the week. 

Chicago Bears at Dallas Cowboys

The Bears are now a respectable 3-4 on the season following their upset win over the Patriots Monday night. Dallas, meanwhile, handled its business against the Lions in a game that marked Dak Prescott’s return to action.

The Cowboys will walk into this matchup with big advantages on both sides of the ball. Chicago’s weakness against the run dovetails perfectly with the Ezekiel Elliott – Tony Pollard backfield tandem. Additionally, the Bears are prone to taking sacks while the Cowboys’ league-best pass rush already has 29 sacks on the season

The Cowboys were 10.5-point favorites on Monday afternoon but that number was whittled down to 9.5 following Chicago’s impressive victory over the Pats.

Miami Dolphins at Detroit Lions

The Dolphins finally snapped their losing streak Sunday night, albeit in non-remarkable fashion, as they toughed out a 16-10 victory against the Steelers. The Lions were humbled by the Cowboys in their return from a bye, suffering a 24-6 defeat, their second straight game without a touchdown.

Miami see Tua Tagovailoa return from his two-game absence and turn in a solid performance that included 261 passing yards and a touchdown, along with 15 rushing yards. He renewed acquaintances with Tyreek Hill and Jaylen Waddle to the tune of 11 completions and 160 yards, and the dangerous trio, along with the surging Raheem Mostert, gets a crack at a Detroit defense allowing a league-high 412.2 total yards per game.

The Lions are hoping to finally have D’Andre Swift back for this game after he missed the last three contests with shoulder and ankle injuries. Amon-Ra St. Brown should also find himself back on the field after he was removed early from the loss to the Cowboys under the league’s new concussion protocol but was subsequently determined to be free of any head injuries. He and Jared Goff should have a good chance of getting back on track considering the Dolphins are giving up 269.7 passing yards per road game.

In what could be one of the more interesting matchups of the week, the Dolphins are relatively modest 3-to-3.5-point road favorites despite the Lions’ offense’s recent disappearing act.

Arizona Cardinals at Minnesota Vikings

The Cardinals got DeAndre Hopkins back in the fold Thursday night against the Saints and put him right to work, with the standout receiver producing 10 receptions and 103 yards right out of the gate in a wild 42-34 win for Arizona. The Vikings were off in Week 7 after pushing their record to 5-1 with a road win against the Dolphins in Week 6.

Hopkins’ breakout effort offered a glimpse of the havoc Arizona’s offense might be able to wreak once Marquise Brown returns from his foot injury, but for the moment, Kyler Murray will look to capitalize on his favorable matchup against a Vikings defense allowing 272 passing yards per game. He should also have a chance to get James Conner (ribs) back in action, which offers him another excellent target in addition to an effective backfield weapon alongside Eno Benjamin. 

The Vikings’ well-balanced attack will face a Cardinals defense that’s had its vulnerabilities against both the run and pass at different moments. Minnesota has had the bye week to further integrate itself into Kevin O’Connell’s offense, and Kirk Cousins and his weapons have already done a particularly effective job running the system at home with an average of 399 total yards per contest. 

In a game that has the potential to be one of the more entertaining of the slate considering the weapons on the field, the Vikes were standard 3.5-point home favorites when looking at NFL Week 8 odds early in the week.

Las Vegas Raiders at New Orleans Saints

The Raiders were able to finally notch their second win of the season by literally running through the Houston Texans in a 38-20 win that saw Josh Jacobs score three touchdowns. The Saints put on an offensive display themselves in Week 7 despite being short-handed, but it ultimately wasn’t enough in a 42-34 Thursday night loss to the Cardinals.  

Head coach Josh McDaniels has fully embraced affording Jacobs a true old-school lead-back role, feeding him a whopping 69 carries over the last three games. The approach has worked with great success, as Jacobs has netted between 143 and 154 yards in those contests while also piling up six rushing TDs. The Saints haven’t been anywhere near as effective against the run as last season, but most of their troubles have come on the road (141.0 RYPG allowed as opposed to home (99.3 RYPG allowed). 

The Saints are likely to turn back to Jameis Winston for this matchup after the 2015 first overall pick served as the No. 2 quarterback the last two games. Andy Dalton had a mixed bag of a performance against Arizona, throwing for 361 yards and four touchdowns but also tossing three INTs, including two pick-sixes. Whoever is under center for New Orleans will naturally be hoping for the returns of both Michael Thomas (foot) and Jarvis Landry (ankle) to the fold, which would give the team back its top wideout trio. 

The Saints are home underdogs as the week begins, albeit by just 1.5-2 points. If the team’s health outlook improves as the week unfolds, this game could well slide into Pick ‘Em territory on the NFL Week 8 odds board.

New England Patriots at New York Jets

New England had been gaining momentum as a legitimate contender in the AFC until a Monday night collapse against the Bears. The Jets, meanwhile, squeezed out an ugly 16-9 victory over the Russell Wilson-less Broncos, the team’s fourth consecutive win.

Bill Belichick poured gasoline on the Patriots’ budding QB controversy as he pulled Mac Jones from the Bears game early in favor of Bailey Zappe. It is unclear which player will start against the Jets on Sunday.

The Jets will aim to snap a losing streak in this series that dates back to 2016, but they’ll have to do so without star rookie Breece Hall – who suffered an ACL injury against Denver that has ended his season. Michael Carter, who’s an explosive player in his own right, will assume lead-back duties, and the matchup against the Pats shapes up as more conducive to the ground game. New York also swung a trade for RB James Robinson on Monday.

NFL Week 8 odds still show the Patriots as road favorites at -1.5 despite their ugly Monday night outing.

Pittsburgh Steelers at Philadelphia Eagles

The Steelers didn’t start off well against the Dolphins, but they ended up giving Miami all it could handle before dropping a 16-10 decision Sunday night. The Eagles were off in Week 7 after moving to 6-0 with a 26-17 defeat of the Cowboys on Sunday night in Week 6. 

Kenny Pickett drew another start Sunday and threw for 257 yards, but he also tossed another three interceptions to give him seven for the season. The rookie continued to develop his connection with fellow first-year standout George Pickens, who he hit for his one touchdown. However, Pickett has an uphill battle against him in a matchup against an Eagles defense that’s snagged nine interceptions in six games while also recording 17 sacks.

Philadelphia has very little weaknesses to be concerned with at the moment, as the team has opened the season in a zone where it’s mostly clicking in all cylinders. The matchup against the Steelers should allow Nick Sirianni to continue running the balanced attack that’s worked to perfection in the standings thus far, as the Steelers are allowing 133.8 rushing yards per road game and 299.3 through the air when traveling as well. 

The Eagles, which naturally will also enjoy a big rest advantage, are unsurprisingly 10.5-to-11-point home favorites as the week starts.

Tennessee Titans at Houston Texans

The Titans pulled off a 19-10 divisional win over the Colts coming out of their bye week, a defeat that was bad enough to apparently end Matt Ryan’s short tenure as Indy’s starting QB. The Texans went down in defeat to the Raiders in Week 7, suffering a 38-20 loss in which their sieve-like run defense was on full display. 

Tennessee’s win wasn’t pretty by any stretch, but Mike Vrabel’s club’s victories rarely are. Derrick Henry looked refreshed coming out of the bye with 128 rushing yards, but Ryan Tannehill suffered an ankle injury that does leave his status for this game in doubt. If he’s unable to suit up, rookie Malik Willis will notably be in line for his first NFL start, but Henry should be able to offer him plenty of support against a Houston team now surrendering an NFL-high 164.7 rushing yards per game. 

The Texans may be sellers at the upcoming trade deadline, so it remains to be seen if the likes of veteran Brandin Cooks will still be on the roster or at least active when this game kicks off. Rookie Dameon Pierce remains Houston’s most consistent and arguably explosive weapon by far, but he could certainly have trouble making his usual impact against Tennessee – the Titans are allowing a tiny 60.7 rushing yards per game on the road. 

With uncertainty regarding the Titans’ QB situation, Tennessee was notably just a 1.5-to-2-point road favorite when looking at NFL Week 8 odds early in the week.

Washington Commanders at Indianapolis Colts

The Commanders managed to actually secure back-to-back wins for the first time this season Sunday, as they edged the visiting Green Bay Packers by a 23-21 score. Meanwhile, the Colts experienced a particularly impactful 19-10 loss to the Titans, one that led to the announcement Matt Ryan would be benched the rest of the season in favor of second-year signal-caller Sam Ehlinger. 

Washington’s pair of wins will likely prove to just be window dressing when it’s all said and done, but the victory was encouraging given it came in Taylor Heinicke’s return to the starting role in place of Carson Wentz (finger). Heinicke quickly renewed his chemistry with Terry McLaurin (5-73-1), but Washington continues to struggle with efficiency on the ground, which could lead to trouble for the backup QB against a strong Colts pass defense. 

The switch to Ehlinger will make the Colts offense a bit of a wild card this week, adding to the unfamiliarity of the interconference matchup for the Commanders defense. Ehlinger was a true dual threat at Texas in his college days with 33 rushing TDs along with 94 passing scores, and he will have a very strong supporting cast with Jonathan Taylor, Michael Pittman, Alec Pierce and Parris Campbell among the weapons at his disposal.

NFL Week 8 odds showed the Colts as standard -3 home favorites as the week opened with the line not really impacted by Ryan’s demotion. 

San Francisco 49ers at Los Angeles Rams

The 49ers started off hopeful enough against the Chiefs in Week 7 before their defense uncharacteristically unraveled in a 44-23 loss. The Rams were off in Week 7 after moving to 3-3 with a 24-10 win over the Panthers in Week 6.  

There should be much better days ahead for the Niners once Christian McCaffrey is fully integrated into the attack, something that could certainly be evident as soon as this game with a full week available to the star back to immerse himself in the playbook. McCaffrey already looked solid with an 8-38 line on the ground and 2-24 tally through the air versus KC. His bigger role will certainly add a twist to the Rams’ defense’s preparation against what is otherwise a familiar opponent. 

The Rams appear to be ready to part ways with Cam Akers, which still leaves them with a solid Darrell Henderson-Malcolm Brown backfield tandem. However, the matchup through both the ground and air versus the Niners is never a palatable one for Los Angeles, with Matthew Stafford now having thrown six interceptions in four games against San Francisco since joining the Rams at the start of last season. 

Despite the 49ers’ lopsided defeat and the Rams having both homefield edge and a rest advantage, the Niners are 1.5-to-2-point road favorites.  

New York Giants at Seattle Seahawks

The Giants continued their improbable opening to the Brian Daboll era with yet another victory, as New York moved to 6-1 and 3-0 on the road by toppling the Jaguars in Jacksonville. The Seahawks, another one of the NFC’s surprise squads, pulled off their own impressive road victory, handing the Chargers a 37-23 loss at SoFi Stadium that featured a 168-yard, two-touchdown performance by rookie running back Kenneth Walker.

The Giants continue to get it done with a true teamwide effort that most recently saw Donald Jones throw for 202 yards and run for another 107 and a touchdown while Saquon Barkley contributed another 110 on the ground himself. New York’s pass defense has also been outstanding, with the one weak link the team does have, run defense, certainly a big potential problem against Walker.

On the other side, Geno Smith continues to shatter his previous reputation as a mostly failed high draft pick, with Sunday’s performance featuring 210 passing yards and two touchdowns. The veteran signal-caller did lose his most potent target in DK Metcalf to a knee injury Sunday, but Monday brought the news he won’t need surgery and simply suffered a patellar tendon strain.

Metcalf’s status was still up in the air as the week began and Seattle was still a -3 home favorite when looking at NFL Week 8 odds.

Green Bay Packers at Buffalo Bills

The Packers’ slide alarmingly continued Sunday in the nation’s capital, with Green Bay falling to the Commanders by a 23-21 score. The Bills were off in Week 7 after notching a monumental 24-20 road win against the Chiefs in Arrowhead that pushed their record to 5-1.  

Aaron Rodgers already had plenty of problems, and then Allen Lazard went down with a shoulder injury Sunday and was wearing a sling on Monday. Naturally, that puts his status for this game firmly into question and has the potential to further decimate a receiving corps that is already missing Randall Cobb (IR-ankle) and may also be without Christian Watson (hamstring) for this contest. Even at full strength, this would be about the most daunting matchup possible, considering the Bills are rested and will naturally have a rowdy primetime crowd behind them while already coming in allowing an NFL-low 281.5 total yards per game. 

The Bills have the look of a team that can only truly be hurt by their own mistakes as opposed to a particular opponent, and despite the stiff challenge the Pack’s defense can present, Buffalo’s offense still has an abundance of weapons that far outclass those on the other side. With an extra week to prepare and Josh Allen having thrown for 753 yards and a 7:1 TD:INT in the last two games alone, the Bills come in brimming with confidence and momentum. 

A game that will undoubtedly catch bettors’ eyes – irrespective of the Packers’ struggles – sees the Bills as 10.5-to-11.5-point home favorites.

Cincinnati Bengals at Cleveland Browns

The Bengals’ offense was clicking on all cylinders in a Week 7 win over the Falcons, with Joe Burrow throwing for nearly 500 yards and three touchdowns to push Cincy to 4-3. The Browns fell to the Baltimore Ravens by a 23-20 score, another close loss for a team that’s seen four of its five defeats come by a combined nine points.  

The Bengals have now won four out of the last five games following an 0-2 start, with Burrow completing 71.3 percent of his throws and generating a 12:1 TD:INT in that span. He now gets a chance to pick on a Browns defense that’s allowing 260.3 passing yards per game and 11.2 yards per completion at home. The good news for Joe Mixon is that Cleveland can also certainly be run on, with Kevin Stefanski’s squad allowing 133.3 rushing yards per contest. 

Jacoby Brissett continues to put together reasonably competent performances while holding the seat warm for Deshaun Watson, but they often fall just short of getting Cleveland over the hump. The going doesn’t figure to get easier against Cincy, which has surrendered a miserly 56.3 percent completion rate on the road and yielded a middling 6:5 TD:INT. Nick Chubb, who’s averaging a career-high 5.9 yards per carry at the moment, has a much more palatable task on paper – the Bengals are surrendering 141.5 rushing yards per away contest.

The Bengals are 3-to-3.5-point road favorites when looking at NFL Week 8 odds early in the week.
