Betting underdogs was profitable again this past week, as dogs went 8-6 ATS. Four of those dogs also won straight-up on the moneyline last week (Steelers, Lions, 49ers and Cardinals).

Six games ended up going over the total in week 7, continuing the trend of more unders hitting now that the bookies have made adjustments by increasing most game totals by a point or two.

What NFL Week 8 Point Spreads Stand Out?

I don’t care how bad the Jets are, I always bet underdogs when the spread is above two TDs. In this case, the Jets are +19.5 and I’ll gladly bet them to keep this game within the point spread.

If the Ravens spread drops down to –3 I’ll be jumping on them this week.

Green Bay already defeated the Vikings by 9 points (43-34) in week 1. Green Bay is now 5-1 on the season, while the Vikings are a miserable 1-5. The Packers at –6.5 is a great bet.

Lastly, the Chargers at just –3 is a bet I’m jumping on now before the point spread moves higher. In a battle between Justin Herbert and Drew Lock, I’m siding with Herbert who has looked great.
