Each week I will pick two games, my “Play it Safe” selection as well as my “Out on a Limb” pick:
Play It Safe (5-2): Eagles vs. PIT
Man the Patriots hurt me in more ways than one last week. If you survived, the safest pick to me for Week 8 is rolling out Philly against a Steelers’ team that is missing key parts and enduring the growing pains of starting a rookie quarterback.
Out on a Limb (2-5): Bengals at CLE
Generally speaking I avoid road teams and divisional rivalries, but this Bengals’ offense is starting to gel and the one-dimensional Browns’ offense can ill afford to fall behind.
THURSDAY NIGHT SPECIALS
Look for my “Against the Spread” plays in a separate article that will run each Saturday this season. Here I will look at my Thursday night betting recommendation.
$110 Ravens +2 (DraftKings -110)
Season total: (4-3 on season; +$80 season total)
Until he proves me wrong, I am betting against Tom Brady. Baltimore is the better team and I always love when I think that and am getting points. Go Ravens!
Same Game Parlay Prop Bet (DraftKings)
$20 to win $110 (+475)
Season total: (-$10)
Lamar Jackson OVER 194.5 PaYd
