Week 8 of the 2017 online NFL betting season is here and, just like every other weekend, football bettors are looking for the best NFL betting guide to escort them through this weekend’s action. Today we aim to look at the best spread bets of the weekend. Whether they be a sure bet on the spread or a more lucrative offer allowing you to cash in on a better payout on a clear cut favorite, the below listed matchups are your best options for betting on the spread this weekend. Take a look.
The still winless 0-7 49ers travel to the Brotherly City to take on the winningest team in pro football. At 6-1, there are few NFL gambling sites doubting the Eagles’ talents this season: Carson Wentz and Philly’s offense are too commandeering. There’s no question that the Eagles will win this game on Sunday, as the -750 favoring on the spread line makes perfectly clear. Furthermore, the Eagles shouldn’t have too hard of a time covering the 13-point spread. The Eagles’ have the 5th best scoring offense in the league with an average of 28.4 points earned per week while the Niners are giving up 26.6 points defensively. San Fran will be on the road and will have to contend against a tough defense. Lastly, the Eagles are 5-2 ATS this season while San Fran is 4-3. Betting on Philadelphia allows you to cash in on -101 odds for backing Carson Wentz and company. Not a bad payout.
Minnesota Vikings vs. Cleveland Browns
Another winless team will vie to crack the W column against a playoff contender. Granted, the Vikings aren’t as dominant as the Eagles but they are still the leaders of the NFC North. Like the game we covered before this, there’s no doubt that Minnesota will come out on top. The only question is whether or not they’ll be able to cover the 10-point spread. So far this season, the Browns have either gotten blown out or come close to winning the game: there is no middle ground for Cleveland. Against the Vikings, a team whose strength lies on defense, the Browns should be able to avoid the blowout this weekend; the Vikings are averaging 20.9 points per game while Cleveland is putting up 14.7 themselves. Sure the Browns are 2-5 against the spread this season, but they should not have too much trouble getting their 3rd ATS win of the season against Minnesota. There’s a -109 payout for fans willing to follow this NFL betting guide and back Cleveland on the spread.
San Diego Chargers vs. New England Patriots
The 3-4 Chargers look to reach .500 in Foxborough; one of the toughest places to earn a road win. The Patriots are 5-2 on the season and the best sportsbooks are pegging them as heavy favorites this Sunday, -345 on the money line to be exact. Considering how good Brady has been in his career at home, the Pats shouldn’t even hiccup as they earn their 4th consecutive win. With the spread being set at 7 points, this is one of the surest bets you can make this year. Sure, the Pats defense has been notoriously bad this year, leading most NFL betting guides to believe that this game could turn into a blowout. But players who watched New England hold the Falcons’ versatile offense to 7 points last weekend know that the Pats’ defense is in the midst of a serious turnaround. The payout isn’t that great on New England at -118, but that’s still better than the odds you’ll get straight up.
