NFL Week 8 Four-Team Parlay You Should Consider Betting
While the Jacksonville Jaguars continue to let us (and many other NFL betting fans) down, we did come close with our Week 7 parlay by hitting the other three out of four. Let’s see if we can nail that elusive fourth win and connect on a nice parlay payday in Week 8.
Pick #1: San Francisco 49ers (+1) at Arizona Cardinals
The Cardinals have just one win on the season, and that came at San Francisco a few weeks ago. They won 28-18 on the strength of getting five turnovers and two defensive/special teams touchdowns.
The 49ers have been very generous of late, coughing up a whopping 12 turnovers in the last three weeks. The 49ers might actually be a decent team if they stop turning over the ball as they lost by eight at Minnesota and were a -3 for the game, lost by two at the Los Angeles Chargers and were a -1 and lost by three at Green Bay and were a -3.
The Cardinals were flattened on Thursday Night Football by the Denver Broncos last week. While they’ll do slightly better this week, my expectations are low. Their coaching staff has been completely overmatched this season, Josh Rosen has been subpar and now he’s banged up, and top cornerback Patrick Peterson wants out of town.
As long as the 49ers don’t turn over the ball four or five times again, they should win.
Pick #2: Denver Broncos at Kansas City Chiefs (-10)
When you take a look at the Broncos three wins – against the Seahawks, Raiders and Cardinals – it’s clear that this is not a very good team. The only time they were competitive in a loss was when they blew a lead at home to Kansas City in Week 5. Things will be different this time around.
The Chiefs have been virtually unstoppable on offense all season long. They’re averaging 43.3 points per game. The Broncos defense is coming off their best game – a 45-10 drubbing of the Arizona Cardinals – and even with that, they’re still ranked 26th in the NFL. While they have 22 sacks on the year – second-best in the NFL – 12 of them came in two games.
The Chiefs will get ahead early in this one and put the Broncos in the uncomfortable position of playing from behind. Case Keenum and company aren’t built for that.
Pick #3: Indianapolis Colts (-3) at Oakland Raiders
I don’t want anything to do with the Raiders right now – even if they’re off a bye week. This is a team that’s very limited talent-wise, has a quarterback that’s lost his confidence and a unit that has nothing on defense. They have one one-point loss at Denver but other than that, their other four losses have been by an average of 17.0 points per game.
Nobody will confuse the Colts with a Super Bowl team, but taking a closer look at their schedule, they have played three teams that lead their division and two others that are in second place. All but one of their opponents – the Bills last week – are one game under .500 or better. That’s a tough schedule.
This one won’t be as easy it looks since they’re on the road, but if the Colts play a clean game here, they’ll win.
Pick #4: Cleveland Browns at Pittsburgh Steelers (-375)
It feels like the Cleveland Browns magic is fading a little bit. Yes, they were able to dig out of a two-touchdown hole at Tampa Bay last week but the team was mostly sloppy. The team totaled 305 yards of offense – including overtime – against the worst defense in the NFL.
The Browns allowed the Bucs to convert 6 of 13 third downs. They also gave up 456 total yards and then handed the Bucs another 114 yards on 14 penalties. Cleveland even won the turnover battle 4-1 and still lost.
The Steelers are fresh off a bye week. Things are going great for them right now as the Ravens lost two of three and the Bengals have lost two in a row. They were sloppy in their Week 1 tie with the Browns, but this time they’ll sort things out and get the win.
