Winning Week 8 NFL Parlay Picks

Winning Week 8 NFL Parlay Picks Feature No Upsets

Don’t look now, but the Dallas Cowboys are the best team in the NFL, followed closely by the Denver Broncos. Neither team is a lock to win in their week 8 against the spread matchups so let’s move on to teams that will win and that you should parlay.

NFL Week 8 Two-Team Parlay Picks

  • Kansas City Chiefs -6.5
  • New England Patriots -6.5

St. Louis Rams at Kansas City Chiefs
When:  Sunday, Oct. 26 at 1:00 pm ET
TV:  FOX
Betting Line:  Kansas City -6.5

Analysis: Kansas City was absolutely brilliant in their game against the San Diego Chargers in Week 7. It was a huge game for the Chiefs who needed the victory in order to get back to .500. A 23 to 20 win over one of the best teams in the AFC is no joke.
KC rushed for 154 yards against the Chargers in that contest. That stat does not bode well for the Rams who give up 145 yards per game on the ground on average. KC should exploit that with a lot of runs from Jamal Charles and Knile Davis.

Seattle outgained St. Louis 463 yards to 272 yards in the Rams’ upset victory. Things just didn’t go Seattle’s way in that matchup, but football handicappers shouldn’t expect the Rams to get all of the good bounces in this one. The trends point to a KC cover because the Rams are 2 and 7 ATS in their last 9 road games.

Pick: Kansas City -6.5

Chicago Bears at New England Patriots
When:  Sunday, Oct. 26 at 1:00 pm ET
TV:  FOX
Betting Line:  New England -6.5

Analysis: Chicago played horribly against the Miami Dolphins in Week 7. The Bears rushed for only 52 yards and Jay Cutler threw for only 172 yards and a single touchdown. Cutler also threw a pick.

Now, the Bears face a slightly better defense in the New England Patriots. The Pats’ D is first against the pass in the NFL. It allows only 208 passing yards per game. Since the Bears’ can’t run the ball, strange because they do have Matt Forte, New England can sit back in a Cover 2 and just give Cutler, Brandon Marshall and Alshon Jeffery all sorts of problems.

New England’s offense is averaging 26.7 points per game. It should easily break the 30 point mark against a Chicago D that allowed Ryan Tannehill to throw for 277 yards and 2 touchdowns.

Pick: New England -6.5

NFL Week 8 Three-Team Parlay Picks

  • Kansas City Chiefs -6.5
  • New England Patriots -6.5
  • Baltimore Ravens +1.5

Baltimore Ravens at Cincinnati Bengals
When:  Sunday, Oct. 26 at 1:00 pm ET
TV:  CBS
Betting Line:  Baltimore +1.5

Analysis: This is simply a case of Cincinnati reeling and Baltimore not reeling. Cincinnati lost 0 to 27 to Indianapolis. The offense was putrid and, once again, WR A.J. Green is questionable for Week 8.

Without A.J., QB Andy Dalton is lost out there. Baltimore has definitely turned it on recently. The two Smiths, Torrey and Steve, give QB Joe Flacco a great one-two punch. The defense is ranked first in the NFL in points allowed at 14.9. The defense is also ranked seventh against the rush meaning that Dalton and the Bengals will have to throw.

Baltimore should win this game outright. They will probably do so by a comfortable margin.

Pick: Baltimore +1.5

NFL Week 8 Four-Team Parlay Picks

  • Kansas City Chiefs -6.5
  • New England Patriots -6.5
  • Baltimore Ravens +1.5
  • Indianapolis Colts -2.5

Indianapolis Colts at Pittsburgh Steelers
When:  Sunday, Oct. 26 at 4:25 pm ET
TV:  CBS
Betting Line: Indianapolis -2.5 

Analysis: Even with 2 turnovers in the first half, Indianapolis managed to go into halftime up 10 to 0 over Cincinnati. Indianapolis has covered the spread in 5 straight games. On the season, the Colts are 6 and 1 ATS.

Pittsburgh scored 3 touchdowns in the span of 3 minutes in order to take a 24 to 13 lead into halftime over Houston on Monday night. The Steelers dominated the second half for a 30 to 23 victory. Pittsburgh shouldn’t get such lucky bounces against a top Colts’ squad in Week 8.

Indianapolis will cover.  

Pick: Indianapolis -2.5
