SD vs BAL Week 8 Odds Preview

San Diego Chargers Philip Rivers

Are the San Diego Chargers (2-5 SU) and Baltimore Ravens (1-6 SU) as bad as their records indicate? Many pundits around the NFL would argue that’s not the case, but the fact is both teams have had horrendous starts to the NFL season and could very likely be in danger of throwing away the year if they don’t manage to string together some wins fast.

Shark Bites
  • The Ravens are 10-1 SU in their last 11 games at home in November.
  • The total has gone over in six of the Chargers' last eight games on the road in November.
  • The Chargers are 2-7 ATS in their last nine games in November.

Heartbreak has been a common theme for Ravens fans this year. Despite having a six in the loss column, every game Baltimore has participated in this year has been decided by a touchdown or less. Joe Flacco and company aren’t any better against the spread, posting a 1-5 ATS ATS record through six games.

San Diego hasn’t gotten it going either and are just 2-5 ATS despite ranking first in the league in total offense and first in passing yards.

TEN and HOU Red-Hot for OVER Bettors

Houston Texans DeAndre Hopkins

The Tennessee Titans and Houston Texans haven’t been the most reliable teams in the NFL when it comes to covering spreads, but they have been a boon for totals bettors by becoming very profitable OVER plays. Houston (2-5 SU, 2-5 ATS) is 5-1 to the OVER, while Tennessee (1-5 SU, 3-3 ATS) has gone OVER in four out of its opening six games.

The Texans have looked like a team that’s been seeking to establish an identity but haven’t quite been able to do so. A revolving quarterback carousel between Brian Hoyer and Ryan Mallett hasn’t helped matters, but Week 7’s 44-26 blow out at the hands of the Miami Dolphins was a low point for Bill O’Brien’s squad.

Tennessee quarterback Marcus Mariota was forced to sit out of Week 7’s 10-7 loss to the Atlanta Falcons with a knee injury, and the Hawaii native can’t come back soon enough. Zach Mettenberger was forced to start in Mariota’s place and finished with one touchdown, two interceptions, and 187 passing yards in an uninspiring effort.

Lions-Chiefs a Matchup of Bad Bets

Kansas City Chiefs Travis Kelce

A pair of teams that have been dropping games on the field and hurting the pockets of their bettors square off Sunday when the Detroit Lions and Kansas City Chiefs travel to England for a matchup at Wembley Stadium Sunday. Detroit (1-6 SU) has only covered the spread once so far this year, while Kansas City (2-5 SU) is just 2-5 ATS.

Both teams have been lackluster on offense and defense as the Lions rank 20th in total offense and 27th in defense, while K.C. is 21st in offense and 20th in defense.  The 2015 seasonhas marked a significant drop off for both teams that had winning records last year, but a win on Sunday could go a long way to lift their spirits in the middle of the year

Nover: Kelly is Hurting Eagles SB Odds

The Philadelphia Eagles are one of four teams on a bye this week. Yet this might be the most important week of the Eagles' season.

It all depends on Chip Kelly. He's been an innovator since coming to Philadelphia three seasons ago from Oregon with his high tempo, fast-break offense. Kelly's style and system have helped the Eagles go 10-6 during each of the last two regular seasons.

TNF Week 8 Odds - Patriots vs Dolphins

New England Patriots Rob Gronkowski

The Miami Dolphins have looked like a different team since former head coach Joe Philbin was shown the door and will be seeking to pick up their third straight victory against the undefeated New England Patriots in Thursday Night Football. In the wake of a 44-26 triumph over the Houston Texans, the ‘Fins have now scored the most points in the NFL for the second straight week.

The Dan Campbell-led Dolphins have their hands full in attempting to knock off the Pats, who haven’t shown any sign of a Super Bowl hangover. The Patriots held on to top the New York Jets in Week 7 and once again showed their uncanny ability to step up in the clutch.

Both teams have been profitable plays for OVER bettors so far this season, as the OVER/UNDER has gone 4-2-0 in their contests.

NFL Week 8 Expert Betting Odds Picks

Adrian Peterson. Matt Forte. Alshon Jeffery. Those are some big weapons in the Minnesota-Chicago game Sunday. So I'm going over 42.5 points.

Teddy Bridgewater is coming off his best game of the season. That means the Bears just can't key on Peterson. Chicago's defense ranks second-to-last in points allowed at 29.8 a game. Rookie Stefon Diggs has upgraded the Vikings' receiving corps.

SN: NFL Week 8 Betting Trends Analysis

Jim Bob Cooter is the Detroit Lions' new offensive coordinator. Maybe he can turn around this trend: The Lions are 0-8 against the spread (ATS) the last eight times when playing on a grass field. Guess where the Lions are this Sunday?

London's Wembley Stadium, which is a grass field. Detroit currently is a five-point underdog to Kansas City. The Lions, by the way, have lost 20 straight games in November when getting points.
