Football Betting Predictions - Week 8

2020 RECORD: 56-43-3
ATLANTA FALCONS AT CAROLINA PANTHERS (-2): PANTHERS
I don’t trust the Falcons enough to get behind them as just a two-point road ‘dog, especially on short rest. Plus, Carolina might have Christian McCaffrey back. The Panthers should win, and I’m not getting cute with such a small line. Read our Falcons Panthers pick article for more a deeper dive into the Thursday Night matchup.
INDIANAPOLIS COLTS (-3) AT DETROIT LIONS: LIONS
This is certainly a low-confidence pick because the Lions aren’t trustworthy either, but Detroit has lost just once since Week 3 and has led by double digits in every game it has played this season. I’ll gladly take a field goal in the Lions’ favor at home, but watch the line moves for Indiana bettors.
LOS ANGELES RAMS (-3.5) AT MIAMI DOLPHINS: DOLPHINS
I can’t justify laying more than a field goal with an overrated Rams team that has cruised through a weak schedule. Miami is gaining steam, coming off a bye and ready to unveil Tua Tagovailoa before a top-heavy defense that has no idea what to expect. This should be close, and I’d give some thought to Miami on the moneyline.
LAS VEGAS RAIDERS AT CLEVELAND BROWNS (-2.5): BROWNS
I have zero feel for this game and wouldn’t be shocked if it went either way but the Browns are more talented and laying less than a field goal at home so the choice is obvious.
