Week 8 NFL Betting Odds: Vegas Lines & Game Predictions

Week 7 of the NFL season was a great one of anyone betting on big favorites. Almost all of the teams heavily backed by the public ended up covering the number. This included the Patriots over the Bears, the Colts over the Bills, the Rams over the 49ers, and the Chiefs over the Bengals.

Don’t let these results impact how you view the odds this week. The NFL is notoriously unpredictable with any team having the ability to upset the opposing team on any given Sunday. Let’s take a look at what the oddsmakers have in store for us this week!

NFL Point Spreads, Totals & Betting Lines for Week 8

There are a lot of big favorites on the board again this week with six games featuring teams favored by a touchdown or more (the average week features 4 or 5). You may find it interesting to note that regular season NFL teams favored by 7 or more point are 1092-1132-52 (49.1%) since 1989.

Of those huge point spreads, the most interesting on the board might be the Green Bay Packers at the LA Rams.  The Rams have looked virtually unstoppable and are the odds-on favorite to win the Super Bowl this year. With the line currently sitting in favor of LA at 9.5 points, this is the biggest underdog that Aaron Rodgers has been as a starting quarterback. This line opened at 10.5 and sharps were quick to bet it down under the key number of 10, but it seems to have settled in between 9 and 9.5 points at most books. It will be interesting to see if there is any movement one way or the other closer to game time.

Below you will find the odds for this week’s games including the point spread and total. You’ll also find a link to a betting preview for each game as they become available.
