Five NFL teams have perfect records entering Week 8, but that is guaranteed to change by Monday morning. Every unbeaten team is on the upcoming schedule, and two of them are set to go head-to-head.
The Green Bay Packers visit the Denver Broncos on Sunday night, as both teams look to win their seventh straight game to start the 2015 season. Even though the Broncos have the same record as the Packers, they are three-point underdogs at home. Denver has stayed undefeated because of their elite defense, but Peyton Manning has played like a shell of his former self. The five-time MVP has thrown more interceptions than touchdowns this season, and he’ll go up against Aaron Rodgers, who has thrown 15 touchdown passes and just two interceptions.
Every other unbeaten team is a significant favorite in Week 8. The New England Patriots are giving the Miami Dolphins 7.5 points on Thursday night, and the over/under of 51 points is the highest on the schedule. The Atlanta Falcons are seven-point favorites over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, while the Carolina Panthers are giving the visiting Indianapolis Colts 6.5 points on Monday.
The biggest favorite of the week doesn’t even have a record above .500. The 3-3 St. Louis Rams are 8.5-point favorites over the San Francisco 49ers. San Francisco has lost their first two games against NFC West opponents by 57 total points.
The New York Jets are the smallest favorites of Week 8. They’re giving the Oakland Raiders 1.5 points, following a big win over the San Diego Chargers.
As of Tuesday morning, there is no betting line for Cincinnati vs. Pittsburgh or Tennessee vs. Houston. It’s unknown if Ben Roethlisberger or Marcus Mariota will be available due to injuries.
