Backing the Under has been a profitable NFL betting strategy thus far in the 2022 NFL season since unders have hit at nearly 60% this year. In fact, the first seven weeks have seen unders hitting at least half the time. Approaching the Week 8 NFL schedule, the lowest over/under is Broncos vs. Jaguars (39.5) which marks the league's first game in Wembley Stadium since 2019. On the other hand, the highest over/under in the NFL odds belongs to Dolphins vs. Lions (50.5), and both teams have seen the Under hit in their last two contests. How should you evaluate the latest NFL spreads and NFL totals? Which teams look promising for your Week 8 NFL survivor pool picks and NFL knockout pool picks? All of the Week 8 NFL lines are listed below, and SportsLine's advanced computer model has all the NFL betting advice and predictions you need to make the best Week 8 NFL picks now.
The model, which simulates every NFL game 10,000 times, is up almost $7,000 for $100 players on top-rated NFL picks since its inception. The model enters Week 8 of the 2022 NFL season on an incredible 148-107 run on top-rated NFL picks that dates back to the 2017 season.
The model also ranked in the top 10 on NFLPickWatch four of the past six years on straight-up NFL picks and beat more than 94% of CBS Sports Football Pick'em players four times during that span. Anyone who has followed it is way up.
Now, it has turned its attention to the latest Week 8 NFL odds and locked in picks for every NFL matchup. Head here to see every pick.
One of the model's strongest Week 8 NFL picks is that the Colts (-4) cover the spread at home against Washington. The Commanders rank in the bottom 10 in total offense and have the fewest takeaways in the league. They have topped 17 points just once over their last five games, while the defense has given up at least 21 points in six of seven contests.
On the other side, Colts running back Jonathan Taylor came off a two-game absence in Week 7 to produce 85 total yards and average 5.8 yards per carry, while Washington is in the bottom half of the league in yards per rush allowed. The Commanders don't have enough offensive firepower to stick with the Colts on the road and the model has Indianapolis winning by more than a touchdown. Thus, the Colts (-4) cover in over 60% of simulations and the Over (41.5) is projected to hit well over 50% of the time. See which other teams to pick here.
The model's Week 8 NFL knockout pool picks say to avoid the Raiders, even though they are road favorites over the Saints. Las Vegas is winless on the road this season (0-3) and the defense is the biggest reason why. The Raiders rank 24th in total defense, 26th in scoring defense and 30th in red zone defense. Additionally, they've forced the fewest turnovers in the league, which is only keeping that defense on the field even longer.
Meanwhile, the Saints' record may not indicate it, but the team has an elite offense that ranks third in yards and seventh in points. The only other teams ranking in the top seven of both categories are the league's three biggest 2023 Super Bowl favorites: the Bills, Eagles and Chiefs. Given Las Vegas' struggles on the road and a high-octane Saints offense that plays even better at home, the model is steering clear of the Raiders with its Week 8 NFL survivor picks. See which team you should pick here.
One of the strongest Week 8 NFL football pool picks from the model is that the Titans beat the Texans. Tennessee righted the ship after back-to-back losses to begin the year as the team is undefeated since then. Only the Eagles have a longer winning streak than the four in a row the Titans have won, as they are looking like the team that was the AFC's No. 1 playoff seed last year.
The Titans have won four of their last five against the Texans, and Houston has the league's second-worst record despite having the second-easiest strength of schedule. Derrick Henry has topped 100 rushing yards in three straight games and the model has him making it four on Sunday. As a team, Tennessee is projected to average over 5.0 yards per carry, while Houston is forecasted to average less than 4.0 yards per rush attempt. With that drastic difference, the model has the Titans winning in over 60% of simulations. See which other teams to pick here.
The model has also made the call on who wins and covers in every other game on the Week 8 NFL schedule, and it also says a Super Bowl contender goes down hard. It's also backing a shocking team in its NFL survivor picks. You can only get every pick for every game at SportsLine.
So what NFL predictions, NFL pool picks, and NFL survivor picks can you make with confidence? And which Super Bowl contender goes down hard? Check out the latest NFL odds below, then visit SportsLine to see which teams win and cover the spread, all from a proven computer model that has returned almost $7,000 since its inception, and find out.
