The Jaguars come off their Monday Nighter on short rest, but look ahead to their bye in Week 9.

Clemson vs Georgia Tech preview

Three of the Clemson Tigers' last four regular season games come on the road, starting this week against the Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets.

Oklahoma vs Kansas State NCAA Pick

After having their perfect season spoiled at home last week, the Oklahoma Sooners hope to spoil the Kansas State Wildcats’ perfect season this week to keep their Big 12 title hopes alive.

Oklahoma is 7-1 SU in their last eight against the Wildcats with four straight wins, but Kansas State does have four outright upsets already this season en route to their 6-1 ATS record.

Landry Jones passed for 412 yards and five touchdowns against Texas Tech, but it wasn’t enough.


Cowboys vs Eagles in Week 8 contest

The Philadelphia Eagles have traditionally used their bye week to come out charged up to win and play tough defense.

As they host Dallas in Week 8 NFL odds action, they bring an 8-2 ATS in the past decade after a bye week and the UNDER is 9-2 past 11 years. The Cowboys have won four of the past six trips to Philly.

The Eagles opened as 3-point home favorites in this Sunday Night battle, but many expect that number to climb during the week.


Broncos host Lions in Week 8 line

These are new-look Lions but will they revert to their old ways heading into their bye week?

Detroit has won five straight road games and is 6-2-1 ATS in nine games on the highway going back to last season. Denver on the other hand has a significant home OVER trend (11-2 past 13 at home). [ Best NFL player props - check out Bovada ]
