NFL Week 8 Picks and Stone Cold Locks – Money Line, Against the Spread and Totals

Week 7 is now in the books, what a surprise, another 2-1 day. Not bad in the NFL. We bring our season total to 14-8 and we are +14.35 units.  We now enter week 8. We have rivalry games, a game being played in another country, good teams playing bad teams, rookie QBs trying to defy the odds, and then there are the Chiefs … just a typical week in the NFL. Here we go!

New England Patriot -6.5 -122 (3 units): This game is in England. Those games always seem to be crazy in some way or another. I remember the Broncos/49ers game to was a snoozer until the 4th quarter and Troy Smith led the 49ers to victory … I also remember in 2009 the Patriots beating the Buccaneers 35-7. They have been here before, they are a veteran team. The Rams ride the coattails of their defense, I think their defense will be shaken up in the environment and the Pats roll.

New York Giants PK -137 (3 units): I am a very big Dallas Cowboys fan. By rule, I never pick their games, but this one I just couldn’t pass up. There are so many elements of this game that people need to take into account, the revenge factor, the Giants play great on the road, Dallas does not play to great at home, the Giants defense has gotten better since the week 1 loss and the Cowboys defense has gotten weaker. The loss if LB Sean Lee is devastating for Dallas as he was one of their more consistent playmakers. I do not see Dallas sweeping the Giants.

Broncos/Saints Over 55 -110 (3 units): The Saints have had 10 of their last 11 games go over. The offense is clicking and the defense is actually just a bunch of holograms on the field. Kind of like when Tupac last performed.  The defense will get it together and have a god game sooner or later… but we will win back the money the following week. The Denver offense is starting to get it together. I am worried that they will focus on the run and eat up a lot of clock, but with the Saints offense putting up points, this should become a shootout.
