Week 8 kicks off on Thursday Night Football in the Twin Cities where Mike Zimmer’s Minnesota Vikings will be gunning for a fourth straight victory and a 6-2 first half start to the season. Linemakers thoroughly expect them to notch it as well with Kirk Cousins and company lined hefty 16-point favorites against a Washington Redskins team whose only win of the season has come against the winless Miami Dolphins; by one point no less! That said, the Skins have been able to be competitive in spurts giving the Eagles all they could handle in Philly back in Week 1, and just going toe-to-toe with the undefeated 49ers last week before ultimately falling 9-0 as 10-point underdogs.
These non-divisional NFC rivals have crossed paths seven times dating back to 2010. Minnesota checks in 5-2 SU and ATS in those matchups with the teams combining for high scorers in all but one of those occasions. Minnesota has won and covered three of the last four times it hosted Washington with the over cashing in each time.
NFL bettors and fans of the sport have been robbed of arguably the best quarterback matchup of the season with Patrick Mahomes out of commission for the Kansas City Chiefs matchup against Aaron Rodgers and the Green Bay Packers on Sunday Night Football. His absence finds Andy Reid’s squad lined home underdogs for the first time since the 2014 season when the then Alex Smith led Chiefs thumped Tom Brady and the Patriots 41-14 as field goal underdogs. Should KC go on to lose this game, it will have dropped three straight in front of the Arrowhead faithful after falling to the division rival Colts and Texans before roasting Denver on the road last week.
Tonight’s matchup will mark only the fifth time these franchises will have run up against one another since the turn of the century. Each squad has garnered a pair of wins and covers with the over cashing in three times. KC is 1-1 SU and ATS as a home underdog with Andy Reid at the helm.
It’s gotten to the point of ridiculousness! Why the heck are the Miami Dolphins gracing the airwaves of Monday Night Football?! We’ve already been forced to watch the Browns smear the Jets, the Bears dominate the Redskins, the Steelers curb stomp the Bengals, and the Patriots run roughshod upon Sam Darnold. Now we have to watch the Miami Dolphins in all their winless glory take on the Pittsburgh Steelers who opened up as the biggest favorites of the Week 8 slate at online sportsbooks; you gotta be kidding me! “FitzMagic” and his fairy dust don’t stand a chance in the Steel City against a rested – but wounded - bunch of Steelers looking to continue turning their season around.
Pittsburgh enters this matchup two-games under .500 but owns a 4-2 ATS record after covering against both Baltimore and San Francisco in defeat. Miami has covered its last two games out of the bye against Washington and Buffalo. But these two squads are on completely opposite ends of the spectrum when it comes to performing under the Monday night lights. The Steelers have covered five of their last six appearances while the Dolphins have gone a bankroll draining 1-8 ATS in their last nine.
