Week 8 NFL Lock Picks

Will New England avenge its loss to Buffalo? How will Kansas City perform as a road favorite against Indianapolis? Will Oakland or Tampa Bay step up in a key game for both teams in Week 8?

New England at Buffalo
When:  Sunday, Oct. 30 at 1:00 pm ET
Where: New Era Field, Buffalo, NY
TV: CBS
Odds: New England -6

Analysis: The New England Patriots travel to Buffalo with QB Tom Brady in tow in Week 8 looking to avenge their only loss of the season. Buffalo beat New England 16 to 0 on Oct. 2. There’s no doubt that Buffalo has a decent team. But the Bills go into this game after losing 25 to 28 to the Miami Dolphins in Week 7.

With Brady back under center, New England has been unbeatable. For his part, Brady has thrown for 1,004 yards and 0 interceptions. He’s thrown 8 touchdown passes. The Patriots have covered 3 straight and are 6-1 ATS on the season.

It’s hard to see Buffalo having any shot of beating the Pats against the spread in this game on Sunday. Bet it early if you can. The line figures to only go up from -6.   

Week 8 NFL Lock Pick: New England

Kansas City at Indianapolis
When:  Sunday, Oct. 30 at 1:00 pm ET
Where: Lucas Oil Stadium, Indianapolis
TV: CBS
Odds: Kansas City -2.5

Analysis: The Chiefs have started to become a force in the AFC. They beat a New Orleans team that had won 2 games in a row in Week 6, 27 to 21. The fact that the defense only allowed the high-scoring Saints to score 3 touchdowns, means that KC has finally gelled on the defensive side of the ball.

Their opponents on Sunday, the Indianapolis Colts, aren’t nearly as formidable as many may believe. The Colts did beat Tennessee in Week 6, 34 to 26, but Tennessee’s defense isn’t as strong as Kansas City’s.

The Chiefs appear ready to blow the doors off the -2.5 spread.

Week 8 NFL Lock Pick: Kansas City

Oakland at Tampa Bay
When:  Sunday, Oct. 30 at 1:00 pm ET
Where: Raymond James Stadium, Tampa, FL
TV: CBS
Odds: Oakland +1

Analysis: Tampa Bay looked great when beating San Francisco 24 to 17 in Week 6. But, I don’t mean this facetiously, doesn’t every team in the NFL look great after playing against San Francisco?

Let’s see how Tampa Bay does at home against a team with as many skill players as the Oakland Raiders have. The Raiders, for their part, were close to phenomenal when beating Jacksonville 33 to 16 on the road a week after losing 10 to 26 to Kansas City.

Oakland’s ability to bounce back from the loss to its most hated rival means that the Raiders have a solid, tough, team. Tampa Bay won’t have an answer for QB Derek Carr and WRs Michael Crabtree and Amari Cooper.

Week 8 NFL Lock Pick: Oakland +1
