NFL Week 8 Schedule and Sportsbook Management Advice

NFL Week 8 Schedule. Week 8 action in the National Football League kicks off with Thursday night football with a couple of teams going in opposite directions. The Baltimore Ravens head to Florida to take on the reeling Tampa Bay Buccaneers. From the Thursday night football game between Tampa and Baltimore to Monday’s Bengals against Browns Halloween festival, this week in the NFL promises a boost to every pay per head agent’s bottom line. Check out a recap of the top contests in week seven, along with our weekly pro gridiron preview.  

NFL Week 8 Schedule2022 Week 7 Bookie Betting Recap

There’s something rotten in Lambeau. Aaron Rodgers is doing his best modern-day version of Hamlet, holding up the proverbial skull and wondering what life is all about after the Packers fell 23-21 to Washington as a -5.5 road favorite.

The Pack has now dropped three in a row straight up as the chalk. Use your pay per head sportsbook software and set max limits on any ML action against Green Bay.

You might as well throw Tom Brady and the Buccaneers into the possible three straight losses category. In their last, the Buccaneers fell to the Carolina Panthers. The loss wouldn’t have been so bad if Tampa didn’t face P.J. Walker. 

Walker was so effective that Carolina has benchedBaker Mayfield even though the television commercial star is healthy and ready to go. Will Walker lead the Panthers to a second straight victory on the road versus Marcus Mariota and Atlanta? 

Let’s get down to how sportsbook software agents can set up their bookie websites for success.   

2022 NFL 8th Week Schedule

Bookmaker Software Tips for Week 8 in the NFL

** Week 8 NFL bye teams: Kansas City Chiefs, Los Angeles Chargers

Thursday Night Football Game – October 27

Baltimore Ravens -1.5 at Tampa Bay Buccaneers

When NFL schedulers set this Thursday night football clash, they must have thought they were scheduling a classic for Prime Video. Not so, because Tom Brady and Tampa are awful.

The Buccaneers head into this on a two games losing streak. Trends say the Buccaneers are terrible in Thursday night football games. 

The trend should prevail in this. Tampa is a controversial play away from being on a three game losing streak to the Falcons, Steelers, and Panthers.

The best the Buccaneers could do against the Steelers defense was score 18. Tampa scored 3 versus the Panthers, and the Ravens have unstoppable Lamar. 

Consider: There’s not much to consider in this game. Tampa Bay has lost to a couple of teams with horrible offenses. Baltimore’s offense is one of the best in the league. Use the layoff account to manage the action on the Ravens.   

Sunday, October 30

Denver Broncos at Jacksonville Jaguars -2.5

Denver comes into this off a much-required bye week. The Broncos’ offense is not good. 

Russell Wilson and his teammates average a paltry 14.3 points per, ranking dead last in the league. It all starts with Denver’s offensive line, which doesn’t give Russell enough time. 

The Jaguars’ bye week doesn’t happen until week 11, so beating teams like the Broncos is an absolute must. Also, the Jags have lost their last three games, so winning this would be massive.  

Consider: So far, 73% of players are dumping on the Jags to cover, which tells online bookie software agents how much respect sports bettors have for the Broncos. Use the layoff account if you must. 

Chicago Bears at Dallas Cowboys -9.5

Are Da Bears back? Chicago blasted the Patriots 33-14 in one of the biggest upsets this season. 

Dallas beat Detroit, but Dak didn’t look good. Prescott may or may not play in this Sunday October clash. The -9.5 odds imply this isn’t a massive game for the Cowboys, but it is because the Bears look like they’re on the cusp of a winning streak.   

Consider: Set max limits on Chicago’s money line. Anybody who saw the Bears demolish the NE in this past Monday night’s football contest knows the team has turned the corner. 

New England Patriots -1.5 at New York Jets

After two games where they battered their opponents, huge expectations fell on Bailey Zappe and the New England Patriots. Many expected the Bill Belichick coached Pats to dominate Chicago.

Things didn’t turn out that way. The odds imply a one score game, but let’s give the Jets their due. NYJ has won four straight and five of six. 

Consider: In the past, the Jets were a double digit underdog versus the Patriots. But J-E-T-S is 5-2 this season. Robert Saleh’s squad is for real. Use your bookie website tools to ensure profit.   

Miami Dolphins -3.5 at Detroit Lions

Miami scored 7 points against the Steelers defense early in their Sunday night football game versus Pittsburgh. But after that, the offense struggled.

Tua Tagovailoa and his mates shouldn’t struggle against the Lions. Detroit almost pulled off the first game upset win over the Philadelphia Eagles.

With each passing week, the Lions get worse and worse. Don’t expect this to be one of the week’s one score games. Expect a big-time Miami win. 

Consider: Cutting exposure on the Dolphins is a must. So use the layoff account if required.

Las Vegas Raiders -1.5 at New Orleans Saints

The Orleans Saints Sunday Disaster show might continue. Dennis Allen is sticking with Andy Dalton even though AD threw a couple of pick-sixes versus the Cardinals in the Saints’ last.

Before their bye, the Raiders showed they’re much better on third downs now than earlier in the season. Las Vegas can win and cover because there’s no guarantee Kirk Cousins will outplay Derek Carr.  

Consider: New Orleans is a mess. Injuries will make Vegas a hot commodity in your price per head book. You know the drill.  

Arizona Cardinals at Minnesota Vikings -3.5

Cards versus Vikings is a big game for both teams. Minny has emerged as a Super Bowl contender. The Valley hopes to emerge as a Super Bowl contender.

Plenty of action should fall onto the Cardinals’ money line. DeAndre Hopkins returned to the AZ lineup last Thursday night and caught 10-of-13 passes in Zona’s massive win against the Saints.

Consider: This game should go over the total. Use your layoff account to cut over underexposure. Also, set max limits on the Arizona money line.

Carolina Panthers at Atlanta Falcons -4.5

After getting behind Joe Burrow and the Bengals early, Marcus Mariota couldn’t mount a second half rally to ensure the ATL scores a win.

Carolina blasted the Buccaneers. The Falcons are a decent football team. So you could see the action flow to the ATL to cover.

Consider: Players may use a betting program to determine which way to go in this game. Wait and see which sports bets software tool is best for you to use to make money.   

Pittsburgh Steelers at Philadelphia Eagles -10.5

Kenny Pickett will be an excellent NFL quarterback. But for now, he’s not nearly good enough to lead Pittsburgh to a win against the Philadelphia Eagles.

Philly heads into this off a bye. Not only that, but the best team in the NFL acquired defensive end Robert Quinn from the Chicago Bears.

Consider: Here’s another where it’s best to see which team your players prefer. You have plenty of tools to manage action.  

Tennessee Titans -2.5 at Houston Texans

This Houston Texans Sunday game has a much lower spread than many thought was possible. The Titans have won four in a row while the Texans have lost 4-of-5.

The fact the line hasn’t moved much implies money is landing on Houston straight up. It also means players don’t believe in Tennessee. 

Consider: Set max limits on the Houston money line. Use the layoff account to manage the action on the Titans if they get hot in your book. 

New York Giants at Seattle Seahawks -3

The Giants and Seahawks are two of the NFC’s best teams. NYG has won four straight and 6-of-7.

Pete Carroll is the best coach in the league. He’s turned what many believed was going to be the worst team in the NFL into one of its top squads.

The Seahawks head into this after money line wins versus the Cardinals and Chargers. Seattle’s defense is playing great, Geno Smith is playing like an NFL MVP contender, and rookie running back Kenneth Walker III is unstoppable. 

Consider: Action is going both ways based on the early numbers. You may not have to do much except set money line limits on the Seahawks to win.  

San Francisco 49ers -1.5 at Los Angeles Rams 

After a two games losing streak, San Francisco is looking to get back on track versus a familiar rival. 

SF has gone 6-0 against the spread in the last six head-to-head contests. The Rams missed out on trading for top running back Christian McCaffrey.

Instead of heading to Hollywood, the 49ers traded for McCaffrey. Christian will make his debut in a Niners’ uniform on Sunday. 

Consider: San Francisco owns the Rams against the spread. Use the layoff account if too much money lands on the 49ers in this huge NFC West clash.   

Washington Commanders at Indianapolis Colts -3

After a 19-10 loss to the rival Titans, the Colts decided to bench former NFL MVP Matt Ryan. The benching makes sense because Ryan has thrown nine picks this season.

Washington beat Green Bay in their last. The Commanders are a better team with Taylor Heinicke under center than Carson Wentz. 

Consider: This should be one of those 50-50 games. Online bookie agents shouldn’t use too many tools to manage the action on Commanders versus Colts.  

NFL Sunday Night Football: Green Bay Packers at Buffalo Bills -10.5

Instead of a four game winning streak, Rodgers and his mates will be on a four game losing streak after Buffalo wins and covers. By contrast, the Bills will solidify their position as the Super Bowl darling in this Sunday October primetime game.

Buffalo is 4-1-1 ATS. The Packers are 2-5 against the spread. So, yes, we’re safe in making the above prediction.   

Consider: For sure, set max limits on the Green Bay money line. Aaron Rodgers is a hall-of-fame quarterback who could provide enough magic to pull off the upset victory. It shouldn’t happen, it won’t happen, but it could happen.   

Monday Night Football – October 31

Cincinnati Bengals -3.5 at Cleveland Browns 

Joe Burrow has turned back into Joe Cool. The Bengals quarterback led Cincinnati to 14 points in the first quarter in an impressive 35-17 win against the Atlanta Falcons.

Burrow threw for 481 yards and 3 scores. Joe also ran for a touchdown.

All of it should lead to action on the Bengals to cover against the deflated Cleveland Browns. Cleveland has lost four straight and 5-of-6. 

Consider: Use the layoff account if the action gets too hot on the Bengals. But don’t go overboard. Browns versus Bengals is a big-time rivalry game. So Cleveland will step it up on Monday night.
