NFL Picks Week 8: Breaking Down the Games to Bet Against the Spread

Last week's against the spread record: 5-1

Overall against the spread record: 35-17 (67 percent)

To be completely honest with you, I originally only picked five games last week.

But I told myself five wasn't enough and that I needed to add one more.

Turns out the one I added was the Arizona-Seattle game—the only loss of the week for me.

Oh well.

This week, I am picking more games than I ever have simply because Vegas has the home team winning every single game of the week.

With 13 games this Sunday, I assure you, the home team is not going to win every single one.

In fact, I'm going with more visiting teams to win this week.

With a total of nine picks against the spread, here's what Vegas has for this weekend's game lines.

Denver vs. San Francisco (at London): San Francisco -1

Jacksonville at Dallas: Dallas -6.5

Washington at Detroit: Detroit -2.5

Green Bay at NY Jets: NY Jets -6

Carolina at St. Louis: St. Louis -3

Miami at Cincinnati: Cincinnati -2

Buffalo at Kansas City: Kansas City -7.5

Tennessee at San Diego: San Diego -3.5

Tampa Bay at Arizona: Arizona -3

Seattle at Oakland: Oakland -2.5

Minnesota at New England: New England -6.5

Pittsburgh at New Orleans: New Orleans -1

Houston at Indianapolis: Indianapolis -5.5
