Week 8 betting breakdown

Dolphins at Texans (-7.5): Expect to see Brock Osweiler again on the short week as Ryan Tannehill remains doubtful for the Dolphins. The Texans opened with a half-point extra value at 888Sport while the under (45) got half-point at FanDuel.

Eagles (-3) vs. Jaguars: Both teams travel across the pond to London with their promising seasons in flux. It looks like Bortles will start, so this line will likely stay near a field goal until kickoff.

Jets at Bears (-7): Intriguing match-up between two young QBs with potent offenses. Recency bias favors the hot home team who gave a good effort against the Pats last week.

Seahawks at Lions (-3): The Seahawks have won 4 of the last 5 in this meeting, but the home is favored by a field goal team at most books. Bettors could find some value on a key number at BetStars and FanDuel as of Monday.

Broncos at Chiefs (-9): FanDuel had the first price on this game, a rematch of the Monday Night thriller earlier this year. All of the books listed it at KC -10 as of Wednesday. KC going for seven wins in a row against its division rival, which could factor into this large number.

Buccaneers at Bengals (-4.5): Despite getting thumped Sunday night at Arrowhead Stadium, the Bengals opened as a sizeable favorite  (-6) at home. The number dropped to -4.5 at several books on Wednesday. Bengals QB Andy Dalton enters 4-1-1 against the NFC South, including a 14-13 win in Tampa in 2014. FanDuel was the only book offering this game on Monday morning.

Browns at Steelers (-8): Pittsburgh enters off the bye with momentum. Cleveland looks for its first win in Pittsburgh since 2003. Watch for the total to move.

Redskins (-1) at Giants: This screams regional bias. Watch for the line to move following the Monday night game the Giants play in Atlanta. Eli Manning does enter the game 18-9 against Washington, his best record against an NFC East foe.

Ravens (-1.5) at Panthers: The books give the visitors the edge despite their narrow loss at home in Week 7. This will be Carolina’s first home game as an underdog despite being 3-0 in Charlotte.

Colts (-3) at Raiders: This may be the most disagreement at week’s start we’ve seen all season on a spread. FanDuel listed this a pick’em on Monday, while William Hill favored the Colts by a point, and the line moved quickly after news of the Raiders trading Amari Cooper. Andrew Luck has split two starts against the Raiders, losing in Oakland in 2016.

Packers at Rams (-9.5): Aaron Rodgers has never been this big an underdog as a starter before. He and the Pack were getting 8.5 at BetStars on Monday, but the line keeps inching toward the Rams.

49ers at Cardinals (-1): Interesting to see Arizona favored at home after Denver blasted them in Glendale and knocked QB Josh Rosen out of the game. The Cardinals get the recency bias as they look for eight in a row against the Niners, following the 28-18 win at Levi’s Stadium earlier this month.

Saints at Vikings (PK): Remember the old days (well, like 10-20 years ago) when the Sunday night game got moved to Thursdays so the NFL wouldn’t go heads-up against the World Series? How things have changed. The NFC Divisional rematch may draw some viewers from baseball.

Patriots (-14) at Buffalo: Tom Brady enters 28-3 against the Bills in his career. The Bills are coming off another embarassing loss, which is surely playing into this massive number for the Patriots.
