2019 NFL Week 8 Over/Under Betting Picks

Written by on October 21, 2019

By the time Monday night draws to a close, we will know if Week 7 of the NFL season ended with two unbeaten teams or just one. The San Francisco 49ers ground out a sloppy win in horrible conditions to move to 6-0 on the season over the weekend. The New England Patriots, who will face the New York Jets in primetime on Monday night, will try to win and go one better.

Rather than waiting to see how all of that plays out, we are instead going to look ahead to Week 8 of the season to see if we can pick out some winning wagers. We will be looking at all the different angles heading into the new week. It will be NFL O/U betting picks that we focus on here, but we will also have SU and ATS selections, so look out for those.

2019 NFL Week 8 Over/Under Betting Picks

Washington Redskins at Minnesota Vikings (OVER 41 ½)

Through their last 4 games of the season, the Washington Redskins have managed to score a total of just 27 points, which included being blanked by the 49ers over the weekend. That alone might be enough to steer you towards the under in this one, but there are other factors and trends that need to be taken into account.

The OVER has hit in each of Washington’s last 6 games versus the NFC North, with the OVER also hitting in 4 of their last 5 visits to Minnesota. Each of the last 6 meetings between these two have also gone in that direction.

  • The total has gone OVER in 4 of Washington’s last 5 games when playing on the road against Minnesota
  • The total has gone UNDER in 8 of Minnesota’s last 10 games against an opponent in the NFC conference

Cincinnati Bengals at LA Rams (UNDER 48)

As we head into Week 8 of the season, the Cincinnati Bengals must be wondering where their wins are going to come from. They have not been particularly competitive in their 7 straight losses this season, with the best player on their team, A.J. Green still out with injury as trade rumors swirl.

Things will not get any easier this weekend, as the Bengals hit the road to face the LA Rams. In their last y games versus the Bengals, the UNDER has hit 6 times. The UNDER has also hit in each of the last 8 games that the Rams have played against teams from the AFC North.

  • The total has gone OVER in 6 of Cincinnati’s last 7 games against an opponent in the NFC conference
  • The total has gone UNDER in 5 of LA Rams’ last 6 games played in October

Carolina Panthers at San Francisco 49ers (OVER 41 ½)

The San Francisco 49ers head into this weekend sporting a perfect 6-0 record to start the season. You would certainly like them to continue that run at home, but this is going to be a tricky one.The Niners are favorites against the Panthers in NFL Week 8.

You have a pair of defenses that are playing really well at the moment, which is part of the reason why the Panthers have won 4 in a row with the backup QB under center. That has prompted the bookies to put the O/U at a rather low 41 ½, which is very doable for these two. I am taking the OVER here.

  • The total has gone OVER in 4 of Carolina’s last 6 games this season
  • The total has gone UNDER in 4 of San Francisco’s last 5 games at home

Oakland Raiders at Houston Texans (UNDER 50 ½)

If you have been watching the Oakland Raiders this season, you will have seen a lot of games where offense was very much at the forefront. This is a team that has seen each of their last 4 games go over, and with a trip to Houston to face DeShaun Watson and the Texans, you might expect more of the same this weekend.

I am not entirely sold on the over her, simply because things tend to be a little tighter for the Texans in their won building, where 6 of their last 7 games have gone UNDER.

  • The total has gone OVER in 6 of Oakland’s last 7 games on the road
  • The total has gone OVER in 4 of Houston’s last 5 games played in October
