If you can’t find an NFL Week 8 spread that you want to bet on, maybe an Over/Under game total bet is the play. Keep reading for a trio of Over/Under betting picks for NFL Week 8 action.
Over/Under Odds Picks NFL Week 8
Philadelphia Eagles vs Jacksonville Jaguars
When: Sunday, Oct. 28 at 9:30 am ET
Where: Wembley Stadium, London, England
Over/Under Total: 41
Analysis: Jaguars’ offense is putrid. Jacksonville can’t rush the football. They can’t throw the football. It got so bad against the Houston Texans in Week 7 that before the first half, the Jags benched Blake Bortles for backup Cody Kessler. That didn’t work either. Kessler threw a pick while Jacksonville could only score 7 points.
In a way, Philly played worst. The Eagles ran out to a 10-0 lead against Carolina. For some reason, Philadelphia could only score a single TD after that. Eagles ended up with 17 points in a 17-21 loss.
Neither one of these teams likes to score points while both have excellent defenses. This should go under by a lot.
Cleveland Browns at Pittsburgh Steelers
When: Sunday, Oct. 28 at 1:00 pm ET
Where: Heinz Field, Pittsburgh, PA
Over/Under Total: 50.5
Analysis: Pitt got a bye in Week 7. They face a tough team in the Cleveland Browns on Sunday. If the Browns hope to win, Hue Jackson and Todd Haley have to take the training wheels off of quarterback Baker Mayfield. When Mayfield’s allowed to create, he’s already one of the tougher quarterbacks in the league to defend against.
Mayfield figures to throw with abandon in this game because Steelers will score a lot of points. Pittsburgh should have no trouble reaching the 30 to 35 mark. Cleveland can score at least 24, which means this goes over.
Indianapolis Colts at Oakland Raiders
When: Sunday, Oct. 28 at 4:05 pm ET
Where: Oakland Coliseum, Oakland, CA
Over/Under Total: 51
Analysis: Raiders should have a plan to exploit the Colts on Sunday. John Gruden had a whole week off to prepare for Indianapolis. He had better have a plan to take apart the Colts’ defense.
Indianapolis is in a groove after hanging 37 onto the Buffalo Bills. Quarterback Andrew Luck has thrown 4 touchdowns in his last couple of games. His TD/INT ratio is 8/3. Luck should decimate a bad Raiders’ defense.
Colts might score 42 points in this game, meaning all Oakland must do is score 10.
