Week 8 of the NFL season is going to be quite the interesting one for a number of teams. There are currently 11 games on the NFL schedule for this weekend, and only one of the 11 home teams are underdogs, something that is out of the ordinary by the standards of NFL betting action.

It’s even more ironic when that one underdog is the defending Super Bowl champs. Something is really wrong right now with the New Orleans Saints, as they really haven’t had but one very strong game this season, and they have really yet to seize control of the Louisiana Superdome as they have had in recent years. This week, the Pittsburgh Steelers are coming to town in a clash of the two most recent Super Bowl champions. Pittsburgh’s defense looked penetrable last week against the Miami Dolphins, and the men in black and gold have to hope that that remains the case once again this week. However, with QB Ben Roethlisberger now having strung together back to back great games, this battle is sure to be a great one on Sunday. NFL picks can be made on this game until the Halloween night kickoff at 8:20, and the hosts are slender one point pups.

The month of November will kick off with a tremendous game as well. The Indianapolis Colts and Houston Texans are both coming off of their bye week, and they’ll meet at Lucas Oil Field for a tremendous Week 8 encounter on Monday Night Football. Houston took a major step in the right direction by beating down the Colts in Week 1 of the season, as RB Arian Foster rumbled for over 200 yards on the day. With the news breaking this week that TE Dallas Clark has been put on IR, one has to wonder if this is the year that the Texans win in Indianapolis for the first time ever. The oddsmakers are showing faith in the hosts though, as they are 5.5 point choices of the oddsmakers. The ‘total’ of 50 is the first game this year that has cracked the half century mark on the board.

This past weekend, the Buffalo Bills were the biggest underdogs on the board against the Baltimore Ravens, and they nearly pulled off the tremendous upset before falling in overtime to the men in purple and black. This weekend, they are once again the biggest dogs on the board, as they are 7.5 points in the rears to start against the Kansas City Chiefs at Arrowhead Stadium. Now though, Buffalo has the added pressure of being the only team in the NFL that has yet to win a game. It seems farfetched to really go the whole season without a win, but with the 2008 Detroit Lions watching and smirking, the Bills are going to be pressed to get the monkey off their backs in this one against the AFC West leaders.

With rashes and rashes of ‘over’ games of late, Week 8 is likely to feature 11 games with ‘totals’ in the 40s. The one exception is going to be the clash between the Carolina Panthers and the St. Louis Rams. These two were both playing in games last week that were decided at the gun, but the Panthers proved to be winners for the first time this year over the San Francisco 49ers, while the Rams were narrow one point losers to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. The prospect was there for this to be the first battle of the season between two rookie starting quarterbacks, but it appears as though QB Matt Moore is going to be the man under center in this one for the Panthers, not QB Jimmy Clausen. This should be a great one for QB Sam Bradford, who has led his team to three wins at home already on the season. St. Louis is favored by three points, while the ‘total’ has been set at the lowest number on the board at 36.5.

The one question mark this week is whether or not QB Brett Favre is going to lose his streak of consecutive games played dating back to the 1992 season or not. Favre reportedly has some serious ankle injuries at this point, and Minnesota’s game with the New England Patriots in Foxboro is currently off the board.
