NFL 2018 Week 8 Gambling Recap

Saints Celebrate Over Vikings


The beauty of sports gambling is that you just never know what will happen, and throwing a few bucks down on a football game always makes things a little more entertaining. Well, except for Week 8 of the 2018 NFL season because most of the favorites won, which meant that most of the more daring gamblers lost. That’s how sportsbooks generally work: when the underdogs lose, so do the bettors who were foolish enough to back them with too much money: it’s been happening every day since Las Vegas opened their first casino.

All of us here at Best USA Online Casinos foolishly thought that the 8 point spread in the Steelers/Browns game was way too high since Cleveland were “ready to heat things up”, but boy we couldn’t have been more wrong. Instead of 8, the spread should have been 14…and Pittsburgh still would have covered it, winning the game 33-18. Maybe Baker Mayfield isn’t the new Golden Boy of the league?

This was actually the trend in many NFL games last Sunday as a lot of the spreads turned out to be way too low. For example, the Ravens/Panthers line was -2 for Baltimore but Carolina easily won the game 36-21. In the Colts/Raiders matchup Indianapolis was favored by 3 but ended up winning by 14, ensuring that Jon Gruden will finish far short of a “triumphant” return to Oakland. The crazy scores continued into the Sunday Night game between the Saints and Vikings with New Orleans easily winning by 10 when Minny was the favorite at -1.

Another “Underdog” to win on Sunday was the Seattle Seahawks, beating down the hapless Detroit Lions in Motor City by 14. In retrospect, based on both teams’ performance thus far into the season, shouldn’t the line have been reversed at -3 for the Hawks? In any event, Detroit looks like they might be ready to fold for the season (again) and continue their never-ending rebuilding process.

The other final scores weren’t as surprising, like the Denver Broncos covering the spread thanks to the whopping 10 points most bookmakers gave them as they marched into Arrowhead Stadium. The dominant Kansas City Chiefs still won the tilt but “only” by a touchdown, 30-23. It’ll be interesting to see if the Chiefs can continue their hot streak against the mighty Cleveland Browns this Sunday…

Man it’s hard not to put money down on NFL Dogs…on to Week 9…
