NFL Betting: Week 8 Opening Lines

The New England Patriots and the St. Louis Rams will cross the Atlantic Ocean for a game at London's Wembley Stadium this weekend, with the Rams one of the biggest underdogs on the opening NFL betting lines for Week 8 of the season.

The Rams opened at +7 at 5Dimes for their game against the Patriots on Sunday afternoon, but they've been one of the top ATS teams in the NFL this season at 5-2 against the spread through their first seven contests. The Patriots are 4-3 ATS this year.

The Buccaneers, Panthers, Saints, and Cardinals also opened as big underdogs at 5Dimes for Week 8, with Tampa Bay at +7 in Minnesota, Carolina at +10 in Chicago, New Orleans at +7 in Denver, and Arizona at +7.5 at home against San Francisco on Monday Night Football.

The Niners are 4-3 ATS this season, with the Cards at 3-3-1 ATS. San Francisco had paid off six times in a row against division-rival Arizona until the Cardinals beat them 21-19 as a home underdog last December.

The other home underdog on the opening NFL betting lines at 5Dimes is Cleveland at +2.5 against San Diego, while the Cowboys are a pick'em at home against the Giants. Dallas is just 3-7 ATS over its last 10 games against New York, although they beat them 24-17 as a road underdog back in early September.
