As we head into the midpoint of the 2018 NFL season I have a trio of bankroll boosting ATS expert picks for NFL Week 8 betting action. Let’s get started!
Expert ATS Picks NFL Week 8
Miami Dolphins at Houston Texans
When: Thursday, Oct. 25 at 8:20 pm ET
Where: NRG Stadium, Houston, TX
Odds: Houston -7
Analysis: Miami couldn’t keep the Detroit Lions from scoring 32 points against them in Week 8. That’s the reason so many NFL bettors already are pounding the Texans at -7. But, the Dolphins are a better team than people realize.
Although Miami had trouble keeping Detroit from scoring, it doesn’t mean they’ll have trouble against Houston. Texans’ defense looked good in Week 7 because it faced a horrible Jacksonville offense. It won’t have as much success containing a Miami offense with decent skill players.
Dolphins shouldn’t beat Houston straight up. They’ll keep it close against the Texans, though, closer than 7 points.
Week 8 ATS Expert Pick: Miami Dolphins
San Francisco 49ers at Arizona Cardinals
When: Sunday, Oct. 28 at 4:25 pm ET
Where: State Farm Stadium, Glendale, AZ
Odds: Arizona pk
Analysis: This game’s a pick. It shouldn’t be. On paper, San Francisco looks like the better team, but they really aren’t. The 49ers couldn’t hang with the L.A. Rams while in the last game between these two, Arizona dominated 28-18.
If quarterback Josh Rosen hadn’t thrown 3 interceptions, 2 of which ended up pick sixes, the Cards might have stuck with the Denver Broncos in Week 7. Arizona’s defense played well in that game.
San Fran’s offense won’t score enough point against the much better defense in the matchup. This should be easy money for those who back the Cardinals.
Week 8 ATS Expert Pick: Arizona Cardinals
New England Patriots at Buffalo Bills
When: Monday, Oct. 29 at 8:15 pm ET
Where: New Era Field, Buffalo, NY
Odds: New England -13.5
Analysis: Sometimes it’s best to just go with what we see. In Patriots at Bills, we see one team that should score at will, New England, against another team that will have trouble scoring, Buffalo.
Bills could only manage 7 points against Indianapolis in a 5-37 loss in Week 7. Buffalo gets a few points in this due to playing at home, but it shouldn’t matter. The line’s less than 14, which means Patriots cover.
Week 8 ATS Expert Pick: New England Patriots
