NFL Week 8 Must Bet Games & Expert Picks

NFL – 2017/18 REGULAR SEASON MVP ODDS TO WIN

Baltimore Ravens -3 over Miami Dolphins

This is a mess battle on Thursday Night Football. The Ravens are coming off yet another loss, where their offense just looked atrocious. The Ravens are now 3-4, and trail Pittsburgh in the AFC North. Baltimore has scored just 130 points in 7 games, and have dropped back to back games. Now, Miami has won three straight games. Matt Moore brought the Dolphins back last week to beat the Jets. This is going to be a mess of a game, but in a must-win spot for Baltimore, look for the defense to get the job done. The Ravens -3 is the bet to make here.

Minnesota Vikings -8 over Cleveland Browns

The folks in London get a chance to see another National Football League game. The problem is – they will see the winless Cleveland Browns. Many think the Browns are going to get one soon, but it does not appear to be something that will happen in this game. Minnesota is playing well, with back to back wins over the Packers and the Ravens. Look for Minnesota to move the football and their defense bottles up a poor Cleveland offense. Minnesota by more than a touchdown.

New Orleans Saints -8 over Chicago Bears

Two pretty hot football games will get together, as the 4-2 Saints take on the 3-4 Bears. The Bears have won two straight games, on the road in Baltimore and then they held the Panthers to 3 points on Sunday. Chicago with a win would be right in the mix in the NFC North, at .500 on the season. The New Orleans defense has been pretty solid and getting after Mitch Trubisky will be the main goal. Look for Drew Brees, with a combination of that defense to hammer the Bears. New Orleans wins big.

Pittsburgh Steelers -3 over Detroit Lions

The Lions are coming off their bye. They need to find a way, as they are now 3-3 in the NFC North. The divisional is winnable with Aaron Rodgers out, and Minnesota fighting all sorts of injuries. For Pittsburgh, after beating the Chiefs, their win over Cincinnati last week has them two games up in the division. The Steelers are going to make the postseason, but they have to find a way to grab home field in the postseason for a shot at the Patriots in January. Pittsburgh wins this game by more than a field goal.

The Steelers vs. Lions game in NFL Week 8 is pretty interesting.

The Broncos got whipped at home by the New York Giants, and then went to Los Angeles and got smacked by the Chargers. Kansas City is looking to take the division and run, and with their talented offensive skill players, they get the job done. Chiefs keep the Broncos struggling here.
