NFL Best Bets for Week 8

The 49ers lost for a second straight week, the Dolphins were shut down by the Eagles, and the Bills lost to the lowly Patriots – one of four one-win teams to get a victory in Week 7.

The crazy reality show that is the NFL season marches on, and here is what we *think* will happen this weekend.

Baltimore Ravens (-8.5) at Arizona Cardinals

The Ravens offense was spectacular on Sunday against the Lions, with five touchdown drives that averaged 82 yards per drive. Lamar Jackson is turning into a great pocket passer, and yet he also still ran for a touchdown in the 38-6 win.

The Baltimore defense ranks No. 1 in the NFL in points allowed, and in four October games they’ve allowed just 42 points. For their end of October game in Arizona, covering the 8.5-point spread should be easy.

New York Jets at New York Giants (+138 Moneyline)

The New York Jets are the favorite over the New York Giants, in this weekend’s battle of New Jersey. But the Giants have been playing much better with Tyrod Taylor at quarterback, and Saquon Barkley is looking like a guy who should have been given a long-term extension.

It’s a home game for the Giants, so the majority of MetLife Stadium will be filled with their fans. And if anyone can handle the good Jets defense, and not turn the ball over multiple times, it’s a quarterback as experienced as Taylor.

The Giants are the underdog, but the plus money you are getting with a straight up by the G-Men makes this an attractive bet. As value plays go this weekend in the NFL, this is one of the best.

Las Vegas Raiders at Detroit Lions (-8)

The schedule makers must have known that the Lions would slip up against the Ravens, and would need a good bounce back opponent the next week at home, and in primetime. Enter the Las Vegas Raiders, the definition of a “get-right” team on your schedule.

The Raiders were just dominated by a bad offense being led by an undrafted rookie from a Division II school. Now they get a great offense in the Lions, led by Jared Goff, who has been outstanding for six of the seven games this year.

The Lions are angry after their loss last week, and they will take out those frustrations on a very bad Raiders team.

Pay Per Head Software

The NFL season is almost halfway over, college football is entering the best part of its schedule, and the World Series is here. Plus we have the NBA and NHL, college basketball is coming, and the NASCAR season is down to its final two races.

The sports betting schedule is packed, and if you are an independent bookmaker trying to keep up with it all, it can feel overwhelming. That is where a top pay per head software provider like comes in.
