Fairway’s Football Forecast – NFL Week 8 Underdog Picks And Preview

Following another winning result in Week 7 going 2-1 on our underdog picks on these pages, we’re now 12-4 ATS with 9 outright winners this season. That makes are four-plus year record posting only underdog plays 114-83 (57.9%).

It also adds to our proven point spread history in NFL handicapping following 8 straight winning seasons when I sold selections and was documented more than a decade ago going 371-277 (57.3%) over an 8-year span picking mostly NFL sides and some totals.

Detroit (+3.5) vs Philadelphia – Lions Moneyline +160 at Caesars Sportsbook

The winless Lions (0-7) find more ways to lose, but I like their chances to break through this week at home against the Eagles. I saw Philadelphia play last week in Las Vegas, and was not impressed as the Raiders scored 30 unanswered points in a 33-22 win. Read more Lions and Eagles game analysis in my betting breakdown at osga.

Check out next week’s lookahead lines as I also provide a snapshot of some of the games for Week 9 at TheLines, including the anticipated Packers and Chiefs shootout in Kansas City.
