Picks, odds for NFL Week 8 Sunday action

Action Network NFL handicapper Thomas Casale replaces fellow honeymooner C Jackson Cowart. Here are Casale’s best bets for Week 8 (all lines courtesy of BetMGM):

Jacksonville Jaguars (-2.5) vs. Denver Broncos (in London)

If you got the front row when the 49ers (+2) played Denver in Week 3, Nathaniel Hackett and the Broncos are a miserable 1-6 ATS this season. Now they’re heading to London with disgruntled players and reporting that Hackett could be fired as early as Monday if the Broncos lose. Does this team inspire confidence in anyone?

Sometimes when betting you have to follow the old motto: “If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it.” The Broncos rank last in offensive scoring with 14.3 points per game. Jacksonville has dropped four straight, but they’ve all dropped eight points or less. The Jaguars cover the short number across the pond.

ATLANTA FALCONS (-4) vs. Carolina Panthers

I feel like the Panthers are getting way too much respect here after upsetting struggling Tampa Bay. It’s still the same Carolina team that fired its coach, traded its best player and only has its third quarterback left. Last week’s win was probably a fluke.

Betting on the NFL?

The Falcons are outperforming this year and were blasted by the Bengals last week. However, it’s a bad game for an understaffed Atlanta defense. Look to perform much better against a Carolina offense that ranks dead last in the NFL. The Panthers are 2-7 ATS in their last nine games against Atlanta. Expect this trend to continue.
