NFL Week 8 Opening Odds
(The Spread) – The opening point spreads and over/under totals are now available for Week 8 in the NFL.
Week 8 gets kicked off on Thursday night when the Minnesota Vikings host the Tampa Bay Buccaneers at 8:25PM ET. According to oddsmakers from online sports book Bovada.lv, the Vikings opened as 5.5-point favorites over the Bucs, while the over/under total has opened at 41 points. That said, the spread has already been bet up to 6.5 at most sports books.
On Sunday, the St. Louis Rams will “host” the New England Patriots in London at 1:00PM ET. The Rams opened as a 6-point underdog but the spread has already been bet up to 7 points. The total, meanwhile, has opened at 47 and right now is holding steady at that same number.
Continuing with Sunday’s odds, the Tennessee Titans opened as 2.5-point favorites over the Indianapolis Colts, while the Green Bay Packers opened as a 12.5-point favorite over the Jacksonville Jaguars. The Philadelphia Eagles have also opened as a 2.5-point home favorite over the undefeated Atlanta Falcons, while the San Diego Chargers opened as a 2.5-point road favorite versus the Cleveland Browns.
The Detroit Lions opened as a 1.5-point favorite over the Seattle Seahawks, although that number is sure to change after Detroit plays Chicago on Monday Night Football to wrap up Week 7. The New York Jets have also opened as a 3-point favorite versus the Miami Dolphins and the Pittsburgh Steelers are currently 4-point favorites over Robert Griffin III and the Washington Redskins.
The two primetime games figure to be good matchups as the Denver Broncos (-4.5) will host the New Orleans Saints on Sunday Night Football, and the Arizona Cardinals (-4) will host the San Francisco 49ers on Monday Night Football. The spread is already up to 6.5 for the SNF game, while the MNF game is now San Francisco –7.
