Week 8 NFL Picks Against the Spread

You could work hard your entire life and find an okay job with okay pay, or you could just take these picks to the bank right now and win straight cash. LETS GO.

Carolina Panthers (-6) @ Tampa Bay (+6): Las Vegas has adopted a team, and it's the Carolina Panthers. Vegas has thrown a lot of love in the Panthers directions, but this line on the other hand might not be enough. This stingy Panthers defense is going up against a hurting Bucs' offense. Vincent Jackson is the only sure thing in that offense. I like the Panthers to move above .500 with a win here and they cover.

San Francisco 49ers (-16.5) at Jacksonville Jaguars
Good lord do I hate betting the Jaguars..... I will take them to lose and  cover, Come on boys don't let me down here in London.

Dallas Cowboys (+3) at Detroit Lions
I do not like this Cowboys defense against this high-powered Lions offense. If Reggie Bush can re-establish himself as a dual threat. And then there is Calvin Johnson... you cannot cover him, give the points and take D-Town.

New York Giants (+6.5) at Philadelphia Eagles

Most dangerous (1-5) team in the league. They will need to get after Mike Vick because this Eagles offensive line is beginning to resemble the lines of the passed, and they are not protecting the QB's. Take the points and the Giants, I think they win this one outright as well.

Cleveland Browns (+7) at Kansas City Chiefs
Oh my god it's former Redskins QB Jason Campbell starting once again! There is no way he sucks as bad as Weeden did. But that Chiefs defense is straight nasty. Take the Chiefs and lay the 7, this is a game I'd stay away from this week, the way new QB's rejuvenate teams is unpredictable. We saw what Hoyer did for this team and Campbell could do the same, but I doubt it against this defense.

Buffalo Bills (+12) at New Orleans Saints
How dare Vegas lay double digits against the pride of Duke University Thad Lewis. The Bills have played in one game decided by 7 points or less and that is the problem. They keep games close, so as much as I like Brees I think Buffalo will lose and cover. STAY AWAY FROM THIS ONE.

Miami Dolphins (+7) at New England Patriots
Never bet against Brady. 

New York Jets (+6.5) at Cincinnati Bengals
The Bengals offense is consistent. The Bengals defense is consistent. The Jets defense is consistent. The Jets offense is the single most consistent offense in the NFL. Geno Smith's bipolar play has made the Jets a gambling nightmare. I hate saying this, but I think the Jets cover, but still lose.

Pittsburgh Steelers (-3) at Oakland Raiders
Big Ben is starting to play well and the Steelers now have back to back W's. Last weeks win agains the Ravens was huge for the Gold and Black. I like them on the road this week to cover and get the W.

Washington Redskins (+13) at Denver Broncos
Redskins fans, please don't watch. Josh McCown ripped my Skins defense apart last week, I can only imagine what Peyton does to us. Denver covers.

Atlanta Falcons (+2.5) at Arizona Cardinals
Steven Jackson is back, the Falcons have a solid one-two punch is Jackson and Rodgers in

the backfield. Harry Douglas gotten off on the right foot in replacing Julio Jones as the best vertical threat on that team(Roddy White is still hurt). Don't forget about Tony Gonzalez, Carson Palmer is always good for a few picks. Take the points, I like the Falcons to win.

Green Bay Packers (-9.5) at Minnesota Vikings
Minnesota is a wreck. Packers cover and win.

Seattle Seahawks (-10.5) at St. Louis Rams
Russel Bussel Hussel Wilson
