Week 8 NFL best bets: A play on every game

By VSiN Staff  ( 

Our experts offer their best bets for every game on the Week 8 NFL slate.

Week 9 of the very unique 2020 NFL season is here. 

With games scheduled for Sunday and one (for now) on Monday, there are plenty of betting opportunities. Our experts Drew Dinsick, Dave Tuley and Matt Youmans combine to give their opinions on every game.

Indianapolis Colts (-3, 50) at Detroit Lions

Tuley: This is one of several games in NFL Week 8 right around the key number of 3, as it’s been wavering between -2.5/-3 all week. Getting 3 is enough to have me on the Lions at home. Even though the Lions probably should have lost to the Falcons this past Sunday, they’re still better than their 3-3 record while the 4-2 Colts are a little overrated. I know a lot of people like the Colts coming off their bye, but I’ll still go with the Lions carrying over the confidence from their last-second win as this game should also come down to the wire.

This is also a good spot to mention that there aren’t too many “advantage” teasers this week that cross both the key numbers of 3 and 7, but if your book has Lions 2.5, it falls in the category of teasing up to + 8.5 in a standard NFL 6-point teaser (if Lions +  3, you get to tease up to + 9, though that’s considered a dead number of NFL wagering). The best option to combine with Lions +  8.5 is the Raiders also teased up to + 8.5 at the Browns, though I’m also doing some teasers with the Packers teased down to pick-’em or -0.5 vs. the Vikings.

Pick: Lions + 3, plus Lions in teasers

Minnesota Vikings at Green Bay Packers (-6.5, 51)
