NFL Week #8 (2018 season)

Hello all! Here are my tips for week #8 in the NFL!

System on Totals

The lone pick from last week turned out to be a loser. The overall record in 2018 now stands at 8-3 (72.7% win percentage).

There are two plays according to this system for week #8: over 53.5 Broncos-Chiefs and over 42.5 49ers-Cardinals.


Week #8 Picks

What is going on? We started the season on fire with a 7-1 record, but we have gone 3-6 since then. We still hold a good overall record at 10-7 (58.8%) which is more or less on par with last year's performance, but we need to get back to our winning ways right here, right now.

I've got 3 picks this week, including a primetime game. Get those selections right here for just $25 USD.


Below you will find two leans for this week (unofficial picks). Last week we won both (Chiefs -6 vs Bengals and Titans +6.5 vs Chargers). Let's see how we do this week:

  • Raiders +3 vs Colts. Oakland benefits from an extra week of preparation, while the Colts are coming off an easy win over the Bills. The turmoil in Oakland is worrying me, though. There are rumors that coach Jon Gruden is losing the locker room following the Khalil Mack and Amari Cooper trades. I've also read that some teammates have lost belief in quarterback Derek Carr. The team could either completely collapse, or rebound by playing like mad men. We'll see.
  • Green Bay Packers +9.5 at Los Angeles Rams. I've been pretty disappointed by the lack of consistency by the Packers thus far this season, while the Rams' offense has been firing on all cylinders. But for some reason I do believe Green Bay will be playing desperate and will show up in a big way, while the Rams have basically already locked up their division. Green Bay was off last week, so they had time to get ready for this tough matchup. Meanwhile, the Rams have just played three straight road games and are coming off an easy win over the Niners.


Thanks for reading!

Last chance to get my top 3 picks of the week here. We are going to rebound this week.
