NFL 2019 Week 8 Picks

All underdogs this week with onetwo exceptions.

BEARS -3.5 vs. Chargers – Bears defense is for real. Chargers seem like one of those teams that can only beat bad teams. ❌

Eagles +1 vs. BILLS – Make or break game for the Eagles, it feels like. In truth, they could lose and still win the NFC East. But it just feels like they need a win this week to assert themselves as a playoff team. ✅

Raiders +6 vs. TEXANS – I continue to think the Raiders are the most underrated team in the league. ✅

Panthers +4.5 vs. NINERS – San Fran has to lose eventually. ❌

PATS -10 vs. Browns – Late addition to my picks, snuck this one in just before kickoffs. Hate the feeling of betting on the Pats but, my god, they have both the highest-scoring offense and lowest-scoring-against defense in the NFL. Against the Browns. ✅

CHIEFS +5 vs. Packers – I’ll take the points and go with the home team – even with Mahomes out. Looking more and more like only injuries are going to keep the Patriots out of another Super Bowl, but if the Chiefs can straighten out their defense this feels like a possible Super Bowl preview. ❌
