Week 8 of the NFL kicks off this Friday with the Redskins vs. Vikings.
It promises to be yet another exciting week in the NFL and given the matchups in Week 8, we’re pretty excited.
The Packers vs. Chiefs is a particularly intriguing matchup on Monday afternoon and there are 15 quality games to bet on.
NFL Week 8 Preview
11:20am Washington Redskins vs. Minnesota Vikings @ U.S. Bank Stadium
We’ll put it simply here; the Washington Redskins are awful and they won’t come close to beating the Vikings.
Minnesota has been improving nicely this season and at 5-2 and 3-0 at home, they should be piling on the points against the 0-5 Redskins.
This game could be over before the halftime break.

4:00am Seattle Seahawks vs. Atlanta Falcons @ Mercedez-Benz Stadium
The Falcons are really struggling this season and now they’re starting to trade for draft picks next year.
That’s never a good sign and facing the 5-2 Seahawks isn’t about to make life any easier for the home team.
Seattle is unbeaten on the road and although playing in a dome will be odd for them, they should be able to get the job done.
Bookmakers currently have this game off-the-board.

4:00am Philadelphia Eagles vs. Buffalo Bills @ New Era Field
The Eagles aren’t exactly flying and they’re in serious danger of missing the playoffs this season.
Standing in their way this week are the overachieving Buffalo Bills, who sit at 5-1 on the young season.
Buffalo has proven to be tough to beat and their young core has improved significantly over the last few seasons.
We’re expecting the Eagles to improve, but Buffalo could get the job done at home.

Bills by 7
4:00am LA Chargers vs. Chicago Bears @ Soldier Field
We think it could be time to give up on the LA Chargers. They have looked awful this season and it looked so promising to start with.
At 2-5, the Chargers are desperate to make a run for the playoffs, but so are the Bears.
Chicago were very poor last week and they haven’t lived up to the hype following a massive season last year.
However, expect the Bears to be better against the Chargers.

Bears by 10
4:00am New York Giants vs. Detroit Lions @ Ford Field
There shouldn’t be much between these two teams, which both need a shot in the arm.
New York sits at 2-5 and although they have suffered some injuries, they have underperformed this season to date.
Detroit were unlucky not to beat the Packers in Week 6 but they didn’t do themselves any favours last week.
Saquon Barkley could return for the Giants and we could see them take this one out.

Giants by 3
4:00am Tampa Bay Buccaneers vs. Tennessee Titans @ Nissan Stadium
Both teams have big struggles at the quarterback position and alarm bells are ringing loudly.
It’s tough to know which team will come out with more energy this week but the Buccs are a solid side.
Jameis Winston has been turning the ball over with ease, so changing him out for a new QB could be exactly what they need.
Betting tip: Buccaneers +2.5 @ $1.90 Bet Now
Buccaneers by 5
4:00am Denver Broncos vs. Indianapolis Colts @ Lucas Oil Stadium
The Colts are travelling nicely this season at 4-2 and they could take advantage of a confidence-stricken Denver outfit.
Coming off a big win, the Colts are strong playoff contenders and there are no real flaws to their game, despite Andrew Luck retiring this season.
Playing at home helps their cause and bookmakers are offering a generous line.

Colts by 12
4:00am Cincinnati Bengals vs. LA Rams @ Wembley Stadium
The Rams should be miles too good for the Bengals and the points-spread line reflects that.
LA is currently the –13.5 favourite over the 0-7 Bengals and we can’t see the Bengals getting a win any time soon.
Stick with last year’s Super Bowl finalists.
Betting tip: Rams –13.5 @ $1.90 Bet Now
Rams by 21
4:00am Arizona Cardinals vs. New Orleans Saints @ Mercedez-Benz Stadium
We have been impressed with the 3-3-1 Cardinals and rookie QB Kyler Murray is working his way into form.
However, one of the more impressive teams are the Saints – who are playing without Drew Brees.
Teddy Bridgewater has stepped up to another level and they’re playing some slick football at 6-1.
They are 3-0 at home and that record shouldn’t come under threat.

4:00am New York Jets vs. Jacksonville Jaguars @ TIAA Bank Field
The Jets were simply awful against the Patriots on Tuesday and it wasn’t enjoyable to watch.
Bouncing back against the Jaguars seems difficult for a team which has a quarterback (Sam Darnold) who is coming off a shocker.
On the other hand, Jacksonville has looked good at times and they should be coming away with the victory.

7:05am Carolina Panthers vs. San Francisco 49ers @ Levi’s Stadium
Carolina has looked good with their backup quarterback but they’re about to get a taste of reality.
The 49ers have been the most impressive team this season and they are going along nicely at 6-0.
Jimmy G has been solid at the QB position and the SF defense has been incredible. They have added to that defense this week to make it even stronger.
Panthers are up against a tough team this week and they could struggle.

49ers by 12
7:25am Cleveland Browns vs. New England Patriots @ Gillette Stadium
Even though Tom Brady’s stats over the last four games don’t read well, the Patriots are a perfect 7-0.
That’s a scary thought and the Cleveland Browns aren’t a team that matches up well against this defense.
It has been a disappointing season for the Browns and we can’t see it improving any time soon.
Bookies have the line set at 13 and that’s spot on.
Betting tip: Patriots -13 @ $1.90 Bet Now
Patriots by 16
7:25am Oakland Raiders vs. Houston Texans @ NRG Stadium
This should be a close game between two teams playing well enough this season, without being amazing.
The Raiders are 3-3, which is considered a good record for them. However, taking on the 4-3 Texans at home won’t be easy.
Houston has the makings of a team that could go all the way. If they stay healthy, they should win this game and win many more this season.
Betting tip: Texans –6.5 @ $1.90 Bet Now
Texans by 10
11:20am Green Bay Packers vs. Kansas City Chiefs @ Arrowhead Stadium
Green Bay is going along nicely at 6-1 and they’re a perfect 2-0 on the road.
Usually, we would favour the Chiefs in this matchup, but without Patrick Mahomes, we have to favour the visiting Packers.
Mahomes is such an important part of the Chiefs success and we’re not sure the backup QB can play well for the entire game.
Aaron Rodgers is on fire and he might not be stopped here.
Betting tip: Packers –4.5 @ $1.90 Bet Now
Packers by 7
11:15am Miami Dolphins vs. Pittsburgh Steelers @ Heinz Field
This isn’t quite a high-profile Tuesday game as the two teams combined have won only two games this season.
Miami is going for a draft pick at 0-6 on the season and although the Steelers are 2-4, they have shown improvement of late.
The line is at –14.5 and that’s not surprising.
