There are quite a few teams that have matchups in Week 8 of the 2011 NFL season that are extreme favorites for a big win.
Every now and then, it's okay to go out on a limb and be confident in the fact that a favorite should have no problem beating their matchup.
I understand that last week the Baltimore Ravens did that theory a disservice last week when they lost in a huge upset by the Jacksonville Jaguars, but most of the time the better team should win.
With all this in mind, here are the teams that should have no problem locking in big wins this weekend.
The Ravens are not going to allow themselves to lose two games in a row, especially at home against the Cardinals.
Consider the fact that their upset loss came on national television against a highly inferior team, and the fact that Ray Lewis is the leader of this defense.
He would win this game and cover the spread personally to avoid another loss.
New Orleans Saints
The Saints have arguably the easiest stretch of two games known to mankind. They absolutely dismantled the Peyton Manning-less Colts last weekend, and this weekend they have the winless St. Louis Rams.
The Rams are going to be without the services of quarterback Sam Bradford, which translates to a very easy cover by the Saints.
This would have been a great game, but the 'Skins have all but imploded in 2011. Rex Grossman bombed as the starter, and then the injury bug bit with a vengeance.
The 'Skins will be going without Chris Cooley, Tim Hightower and Santana Moss just to name a few.
The Bills are going to circle the wagons yet again.
