Six Picks against the Week 8 NFL spread

Robert S. highlights six picks against the spread that, if betting was legal in Texas, he’d be betting money on this weekend.

Good afternoon, Bears fans! Welcome back to another episode of Six Picks, a series where I’ll go through my favorite spread matchups every weekend and explain my reasoning surrounding each pick. It should be a fun way to talk about all sorts of NFL teams and (hopefully) make some money while we’re at it.... or at least all you non-Texans can.

Bears analysis from the Tampa Bay and Carolina games kept me away from working on this series, but Monday Night’s Rams game doesn’t need any extra coverage so I whipped up another edition! Overall this feels like a week for taking favorites — with scoring higher than ever, spreads that are anywhere from -3.5 (Rams) to -10.5 (Eagles) just don’t feel as dangerous as they used to when it comes to betting. With strong teams taking on weak opponents, some of who may be beginning to tank, Week 8 feels like a week for “Goliath” much more than “David”.

Check out the picks below and let me know what you think!

How do you feel about this week’s selections?
