Do you need to kick-start your sports betting bankroll? Then you have come to the right place. I have a trio of bankroll boosting upset moneyline picks for NFL Week 8 action. Let’s get started.
Upset Moneyline Picks NFL Week 8
Seattle Seahawks +145 at Detroit Lions -165
When: Sunday, Oct. 28 at 1:00 pm ET
Where: Ford Field, Detroit, MI
Spread: Detroit -2.5
Analysis: Early betting implies Lions’ are overvalued in this spot. The spread should go to Detroit -3.5, or even -4, once the public’s done betting. After that, some pro bettors will take the betting line down from -4 to -3. That’s where it figures to settle.
Seattle heads to Detroit off a bye. They have the advantage of planning specifically for this game while the Lions had to travel to Miami in Week 7.
Seahawks got their rushing attack going in the two games before the bye. If they can rush it against the Lions, they’ll have success. Seattle’s the team to back on the moneyline.
Week 8 Moneyline Upset Pick: Seattle Seahawks +145
Green Bay Packers +335 at L.A. Rams -420
When: Sunday, Oct. 28 at 4:25 pm ET
Where: Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum, Los Angeles, CA
Spread: L.A. Rams -9
Analysis: Spread’s gone up a point already with Rams opening at -8 and now at -9. Los Angeles looked awesome when putting a beating on the San Francisco 49ers. They beat the 49ers by 29 points.
Los Angeles must step it up to do the same thing to the Green Bay Packers on Sunday. Green Bay has an offense that can hang with the Rams’ offense. As great as Los Angeles has looked, Packers got a week off, which means Green Bay will have something special planned for the Rams’ defense.
L.A. drops their first game this season on Oct. 28.
Week 8 Moneyline Upset Pick: Green Bay Packers +335
New Orleans Saints -103 at Minnesota Vikings -117
When: Sunday, Oct. 28 at 8:20 pm ET
Where: U.S. Bank Stadium, Minneapolis, MN
Odds: Minnesota -1.5
Analysis: The line could go either way, but the guess here is that Minnesota ends up a -2.5 to -3 favorite by kick-off. If the Vikings do end up as a -3 favorite, New Orleans is a massive play on the moneyline.
The Saints rallied to beat Baltimore 24-23 in Week 7. New Orleans had help, Justin Tucker missed the tying extra point, but no matter how the Saints won, they won. New Orleans should beat Minnesota straight up.
New Orleans has gotten better week to week. They already showed they go on the road and hang 24 onto a great defense. Saints win.
Week 8 Moneyline Upset Pick: New Orleans Saints -103
