The Monday night game between the Washington Redskins and Philadelphia Eagles will bring Week 7 of the NFL to a close, bringing us one step closer to the halfway point of the season. We are getting to the point where seasons start to slip away from the teams who are struggling to pick up wins, while the best teams look to pad their leads in their respective divisions becoming one of the Top NFL betting picks week after week.

NFL Betting Picks for a Week 8 SU Parlay

After getting off to an 0-2 start, the New Orleans Saints have gone on a 4-game win streak that has taken them to the top of the NFC South. They will welcome in the surprising Chicago Bears this weekend, and while this could be a tricky one for the Saints, I think they will pick up the win. Sometimes it takes a stinker of a game to get a good team to wake up and start performing. After an awful loss to the Jacksonville Jaguars in Week 5, the Pittsburgh Steelers have put together back to back dominating performances, and look like the team we thought they would be. I like them to win over the Detroit Lions in the Sunday night game. The NFC East almost always seems to turn into a tight battle, and we are getting more of the same today. The Dallas Cowboys will play the Washington Redskins on Sunday, with Washington coming in on a short week. That gives the edge to Dallas, who I really like to win this one.

NFL Betting Picks for a Week 8 ATS Parlay

After a bit of a wobbly start, the New England Patriots are starting to look like the team we expected, delivering a dominating win over the Atlanta Falcons in Week 7. They are expected to be a 7-point favorite for their upcoming game versus the LA Chargers, which is a spread I believe they cover quite comfortably. There was a sense of things getting better in Cleveland after the NFL draft, but it is proving to be more of the same, as the Browns have started 0-7 and have players reportedly missing meetings and staying out late. It’s a disaster that will continue this weekend when they fall to the Minnesota Vikings as a 7 ½ point underdog. The Browns shouldn't be one of your NFL Betting Picks for Week 8. The Houston Texans and Seattle Seahawks will hook up in what looks to be one of the better Week 8 match-ups. The Texans will be rested after a bye week, while the Seahawks come into this one after a sloppy win over the Giants. I think the Texans can keep this one close and cover as a 5 ½ point dog.

Latest NFL Week 8 Betting Trends

  • Chargers are 3-8-1 ATS in their last 12 games
  • Patriots are 5-2 ATS in their last 7 games when playing at home against LA Chargers
  • Browns are 1-5 ATS in their last 6 games
  • Texans are 4-1 ATS in their last 5 games
  • Seahawks are 5-2 ATS in their last 7 games at home

NFL Betting Picks for a Week 8 Over/Under Parlay

When looking at the early betting odds for Week 8, it was the Thursday night game between the Miami Dolphins and Baltimore Ravens that jumped off the page when considering O/U bets. Baltimore has been struggling offensively for weeks, and Miami may be without the services of Jay Cutler. This one should stay UNDER 37 ½ points. The Cleveland Browns benched DeShone Kizer in Week 7, and you now have to wonder if the rookie QB will get the start against the Minnesota Vikings this weekend. No matter who starts for the Browns, they are going to have trouble scoring on the Vikings D. This looks like an UNDER 37 ½ points play all the way. The resurgence of the Pittsburgh Steelers over the last couple of weeks has been caused, in large part, by the play of their defense. I like the Steelers to shut down Matthew Stafford and company this coming Sunday, keeping the point total UNDER 45.

Latest NFL Week 8 Betting Trends

  • The total has gone UNDER in 6 of Miami’s last 7 games
  • The total has gone UNDER in 11 of Baltimore’s last 16 games at home
  • In 4 of Minnesota’s last 6 games, the total has gone UNDER
  • In 11 of Cleveland’s last 15 games, the total has gone UNDER
