For fans who don’t really have a dog in the fight, this season in the NFL is proving to be a good one. Every one of the 6 divisions is tight, with no clear leader in each. Even the Philadelphia Eagles, who are the only unbeaten team left this season, do not have a huge lead in the East and are just 1 loss away from dropping out of the top spot. I think it’s fair to say that most divisional races are going to go all the way down to the wire, as are the playoff races. We are in for a great second half of the season, but before we get to looking ahead too far, let’s instead focus on Week 8. We are coming off a very solid week of picks, going 8-2 in Week 7, so let’s see if we can do even better, starting with our NFL ATS picks for Week 8. Let’s jump right into action so you can continue betting against the NFL Betting Lines.
Week 8 ATS Betting Picks | 2022 NFL Odds & Predictions
Cincinnati Bengals (-3 ½) at Cleveland Browns
While things are tight at the moment, there is a very good chance that the better teams in the league will move up a gear and begin to pull away in the second half of the season. One of those teams may well be the Cincinnati Bengals, who have been up and down in the season following their losing trip to the Super Bowl. They are back above .500 at 4-2 after winning back-to-back games, both of which were outings where the offense looked very good again. They will be on the road this coming Monday night against a Cleveland team that is on the slide after losing 4 in a row. Cincinnati has covered the spread in each of their last 5 games and should extend that run to 6.
Green Bay Packers at Buffalo Bills (-10 ½)
Prior to the start of the season, we all looked at the schedule and picked out the primetime games that looked very appealing. I’m sure that most of us had this one circled on the calendar, but given what has gone down this season, this Sunday night game suddenly doesn’t look quite so glamorous. The Green Bay Packers are struggling and currently look like a longshot to make the playoffs, sitting at 3-4 in the midst of a 3-game losing skid. The Bills, on the other hand, are flying and look every bit like the Super Bowl favorite the bookies set them as. The Bills are 8-2-2 ATS in their last 12 games, while the Packers have covered just once in their last 6 road games.
Denver Broncos (+3) at Jacksonville Jaguars
We are taking a bit of a chance and going with a game that is traditionally tough to handicap. The fact of the matter is that the London games tend to be a bit of a crapshoot, as it’s always tough to know which team will react better to the long travel and all that goes with those England visits. The Jaguars do this regularly, so may have the edge there, but there are other factors to consider. Both teams are struggling with 2-5 records on the season, but the Broncos have covered in each of their last 5 meetings with a team from the AFC South. The Jaguars have also failed to cover in their last 5 games starting as the favorite.
