Splash’s Week 8 Predictions

Splash’s Week 8 Predictions

by October 29, 2020 0 comments

Welcome to a weekly installment of NFL picks.

Feel free to keep track of your predictions and see if you can beat the author.

Straight-up Record: 76-28-1 

ATS Record: 58-44-3

Week 7 Byes: Arizona Cardinals, Washington Football Team, Jacksonville Jaguars, Houston Texans

Thursday Night Football:

Atlanta Falcons at Carolina Panthers (-1.5)

Panthers 24, Falcons 21

The Panthers are better on both sides of the ball, and they will not need a comeback to complete their season sweep of the Falcons.

Sunday Games:

New England Patriots at Buffalo Bills (-4)

Bills 28, Patriots 21

Neither defense has played particularly well this season, but the Patriots are reeling from back-to-back bad losses. Expect the Bills to send the Patriots to 2-5.

Tennessee Titans at Cincinnati Bengals (+5.5)

Titans 34, Bengals 30

The Titans often win without covering the spread. The Bengals often lose while covering the spread. This is a potential bettor paradise.

Las Vegas Raiders at Cleveland Browns (-2.5)

Raiders 31, Browns 24

The Raiders are talented enough offensively to knock off the Browns.

Indianapolis Colts at Detroit Lions (+3)

Lions 24, Colts 21 F/OT

Matthew Stafford is better at football than Philip Rivers. The Colts have one of the league’s best defenses, but they cannot defend a pick six.

Minnesota Vikings at Green Bay Packers (-7)

Packers 38, Vikings 3

Slam your life savings on this game. The Vikings needed a miracle to keep their first matchup within 10 points. This will be a blowout of epic proportions. 

New York Jets at Kansas City Chiefs (-19.5)

Chiefs 24, Jets 3

Is it a hot take to say this game will not be the largest blowout of Week 8?

Los Angeles Rams at Miami Dolphins (+3.5)

Dolphins 23, Rams 17

In the upset special of the week, Brian Flores will call a masterful defensive gameplan, and Tua Tagovailoa will win his first NFL start.

Pittsburgh Steelers at Baltimore Ravens (-4)

Steelers 31, Ravens 24

It’s a shame that this game is in the early window. 

Los Angeles Chargers at Denver Broncos (+3)

Chargers 31, Broncos 13

The Broncos will be senseless beaten to a pulp with Justin Herbert’s relentless 60-yard touchdowns.

New Orleans Saints at Chicago Bears (+4.5)

Saints 24, Bears 12

Saints fans will be able to laugh at Buccaneers fans as Drew Brees will remember how many downs there are. New Orleans will finally get a strong defensive showing.

San Francisco 49ers at Seattle Seahawks (-3)

49ers 24, Seahawks 21 F/OT

Seattle cannot have an easy victory, and the 49ers will take the victory in overtime.

Sunday Night Football:

Dallas Cowboys at Philadelphia Eagles (-9)

Eagles 38, Cowboys 10

Why. Is. This. Still. In. The. Prime. Time. Window. NFL, you should be ashamed of yourself.

Monday Night Football:

Tampa Bay Buccaneers at New York Giants (+11.5)

Buccaneers 35, Giants 13

With Chiefs-Buccaneers quickly approaching, the Buccaneers will throw their hat into the ring as the NFL’s team with a slaughter of the Giants.
