Last Week: 5-6-1 (Yikes)
Season Record: 52-46-3
TOJ Week 8 NFL Picks (Lines courtesy of BetUS)
Indianapolis (+8.5) vs. Tennessee – Neither of these teams are quite as bad as they looked last week. I do think the Colts are truly awful but they will show some pride on Sunday and keep it close against Tennessee, who doesn’t have the firepower to blow them out.
Jacksonville (+9) vs. Houston – Similarly, neither of these teams are quite as good as they looked last week. The Jaguars defense will keep them competitive.
Carolina (-3) vs. Minnesota – Carolina will get their second win a row heading into their bye week. Cam Newton and Steve Smith have this team light years ahead of where anyone thought they’d be this season.
New Orleans (-14) vs. St. Louis – I am not sure people really appreciate how terrible St. Louis is this season.
Baltimore (-13) vs. Arizona – The Ravens should take out their anger on a pitiful Cardinals team this Sunday.
Giants (-10.5) vs. Miami – The Suck For Luck tour loses in New Jersey for the second time in three weeks.
Buffalo (-6.5) vs. Washington – Oh, Canada. Jets nation will be rooting for the Redskins but won’t receive any help.
Detroit (-4) vs. Denver – Not sure I can see Tebow winning two games in a row.
New England (-3) vs. Pittsburgh – The Patriots have owned Pittsburgh, period. I hope it changes but there is no reason to think it will.
San Francisco (-9.5) vs. Cleveland – The 49ers should be able to rack up 11-12 wins this year considering their schedule.
Philadelphia (-3) vs. Dallas – This could really go either way. I will take the home team.
Kansas City (+4.5) vs. San Diego – The Chargers are still drowning in their tears from last week.
