NFL Week 8 Betting Tips
Baltimore Ravens at Tampa Bay Buccaneers
Thursday 8.15pm (ET)
It’s hard to be surprised by the decline of Tom Brady this season, the 7-time Super Bowl Champion is 45 years old after all. However, the sheer pace of it all has been a little concerning. The Buccs have one of the worst offenses in the league this season, scoring just 17.7 points per game. Compare that to the 31.4 they put up through the first seven games of the season last year and the alarm bells start ringing.
The Ravens are 4-3 to start the season and have looked good and bad at times throughout. In fact, so much has their inconsistency been on display that they have alternated wins and losses week by week throughout the first seven games.. They are on the back of a 3 point win at home against the Browns, will they finally snap the streak?
Don’t really fancy either team at this 1.5 point line in favour of the Ravns on the road but I am a massive fan of the unders here. The Buccs offense has been non existent and the 14 games these two teams have been involved in this season are a combined 11-3 in favour of the unders.
Green Bay Packers at Buffalo Bills
Sunday 8.20pm (ET)
Before we start complaining about how bad the Packers have been lately and how we have to watch them on Sunday night football., let’s just be grateful that we dont have to endure another Broncos prime-time game this week! Yes, Aaron Rodgers and the Packers offense has had a similar demise to that of Tom Brady and the Buccs this season, but they are still 3-4 on the season and by no means out of the playoff hunt.
The Bills are absolutely rolling at the moment. The loss to the Dolphins in Week 3 might have been the best thing for them. It got the pressure off their back early and since then, Josh Allen and the rest of the offense has been absolutely dominating games. They have put up 29.3 points per game, good for 2nd in the league while their defense has allowed just 13.5, best in the league.
It might be the first time in Aaron Rodgers career that he has been a double digit underdog, but on the road against this Bills team, I still don’t think the 10.5 point spread is enough. At home, I think the Bills absolutely roll through the Packers here. The Bills are 4-1-1 against the spread, so haven’t had much issue covering big lines this season, while the Packers are 2-4 against the spread.
Cincinnati Bengals at Cleveland Browns
Monday 8.15pm (ET)
The high powered Cincinnati offense has started to find some form in the 2022-23 season after a slow start to the year. They have won four of their last five games and have put up at least 27 points in all of those wins on the back of strong Joe Burrow passing games. They are now 4-3 on the season and sit tied with the Ravens in the division.
It’s still early in the season, but you’d already think this is a must win for the Cleveland Browns. They sit two games behind their divisional opponents in the Ravens and Bengals, and another loss to a team inside the AFC North here would make it near impossible to make the playoffs.
Defense has been the major concern for the Browns. Through their opening six games, they are allowing 26.6 points per game, which is the fifth highest total in the league. Like the look of the overs here. Cincinnati could score 35+ on this defense without breaking a sweat.
