NFL Week 8 Betting Online

All 32 teams are scheduled to play in Week 8 of the NFL season with a rare matchup between the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and Buffalo Bills getting the betting week started on Thursday Night Football. Buffalo has stumbled losing two of their last three games matching their total number of defeats from last season with Sunday’s 29-25 setback in New England. The Bills were an 8.5-point favorite extending their ATS losing streak to three. The Bucs and Bills met in 2021 with the Bucs scoring a 33-27 victory, however, this will be only the 13th encounter between the clubs. The Bucs have dropped two in a row to even their record at 3-3 and they are catching 7-points on the early line, the fifth time as an underdog in seven games.

Two of the six teams that didn’t play last week will get together on Sunday when the surprising Houston Texans visit the winless Carolina Panthers in a battle between the top two picks in the recent NFL Draft. Neither quarterback entered a situation that would deliver immediate success, but No. 2 pick C.J. Stroud has put up better numbers with his team currently at 3-3 than No. 1 pick Bryce Young has. Houston is one of seven road teams laying points on the early Week 8 line sitting as a field goal favorite.

Baltimore is the biggest road favorite on the early line spotting the Cardinals 9-points in their contest. The Ravens had arguably the biggest win in Week 7 dominating the Lions 38-6. With two straight wins and covers, the Ravens moved into first place in the AFC North, though it’s going to be tight to the end. All four teams enter Week 8 with at least two losses.

Cincinnati is another team that was off last week and the Bengals have the unenviable task of taking on the 49ers in their return matchup. A Super Bowl favorite before the season started and one of the last teams to lose a game, the Niners have dropped two in a row after an upset loss in Minnesota on Monday night. Meanwhile, the Bengals are headed in the opposite direction with two straight victories ahead of their bye.

After opening the season with consecutive losses, Cincy has taken three of four overall with all three wins coming against the NFC West. The Niners are a solid 6-point favorite on the early line and should be concerned about the play of Brock Purdy, who tossed two interceptions in a game for the first time and has three picks in the last two games after not tossing one through the first five, all San Francisco wins.

Four divisional matchups are included on the slate with an AFC East confrontation between the Dolphins and Patriots having the biggest opening line on the Week 8 board. Miami is a 10-point favorite and if the spread holds it would be the third time the Fins are laying double-digits. They covered the previous two but Miami is coming off a humbling 31-17 loss to Philadelphia where the league’s top offense scored a season-low point total and amassed 244 yards. The Pats ended a three-game losing streak helping the Dolphins out with a 29-25 upset of Buffalo on Sunday as an 8.5-point dog. Miami won the Week 2 matchup 24-17, their fifth win in the last six meetings while going 6-0 ATS in that span.

Matchups between the NFC North and AFC West highlight the primetime lineup with both games opening with a 9-point spread. For the first time this season the Los Angeles Chargers were involved in a game decided by more than one score, however the result was similar losing to Kansas City 31-17 last week. The Bolts are favored at home against the Bears, who could again be without Justin Fields. Rookie Tyson Bagent was 21 of 29 for 162 yards and a TD as Chicago beat Las Vegas outright 30-12 as a 2.5-point dog. Detroit is next in line for the Raiders as the two close out the betting week on Monday Night Football.

Week 8 has a strong lineup of games in the early window. Among the best is the Los Angeles Rams at Dallas Cowboys.

Last year the Rams suffered from a combination of a Super Bowl hangover, a rash of injuries, and reading their headlines. One of the worst culprits was head coach Sean McVay. The young genius milked the 2022-23 Super Bowl championship for all it was worth. McVay and his hot wife made all the gossip and entertainment sites. He became an endorsement machine for such products as Chunky Soup. But at the end of the season, McVay was exposed as merely human. He was humbled and humiliated to the point of nearly quitting. Now he returns looking for redemption.

NBC Sunday Night Football gets an intriguing matchup. The Los Angeles Chargers will host the Chicago Bears. It is true that the Chargers made the 2022 NFL Playoffs. But it’s also true that they had one of the greatest meltdowns in NFL Playoff history. The Chargers blew a 27-0 lead in a stunning loss to the young Jacksonville Jaguars. Head coach Brandon Staley lost almost all credibility in the setback. And he is on one of the hottest seats in football.

Staley is not without assets, starting with quarterback Justin Herbert. When Herbert was taken in the first round of the 2020 NFL Draft, he lifted the Chargers from a loser into a contender. Although the Kansas City Chiefs remain in the AFC West class, the Chargers are a threat to challenge KC as well as for an AFC Playoff berth.

Not long ago, ESPN Monday Night Football grew stale with a weak schedule and a revolving door of announcers. That is no longer the case. These days, ESPN boasts a strong schedule with top games every week. Week 8 is no exception. The Detroit Lions will host the Las Vegas Raiders in an interconference battle of playoff contenders.
