Office Pool Picks: Week 8

October 26, 2017

The crazy NFL season continues and I continue to do my best to figure it out. Some weeks are better than others. I like this week’s slate of games. Here’s my best crack at picking winners for your Week 8 Office Pool Picks.

Here are my picks for this week all your favorite office pool formats – Confidence Pool, Survivor and Against the Spread:

13 Eagles vs. SF
12 Saints vs. CHI
11 Vikings vs. CLE (London)
10 Chiefs vs. DEN
09 Bengals vs. IND
08 Patriots vs. LAC
07 Steelers at DET
06 Falcons at NYJ
05 Seahawks vs. HOU
04 Bucs vs. CAR
03 Dolphins at BAL
02 Bills vs. OAK
01 Cowboys at WAS

Each week I’ll offer up my “playing it safe” and my “out on the limb” pick for your elimination pool:

Playing it safe – Eagles
My preseason NFC champion pick, the Eagles, are very much looking the part. They get a young and less-talented 49ers’ team making the long trip across the country to take them on in 1PM game. There is some concern of heavy rains, but it won’t stop me from flying with Philly!

Out on a limb – Bengals
Cincinnati looked over matched on the field and the sidelines once again last week against their division foes, Pittsburgh, but they now get to return to the friendly confines of Paul Brown Stadium and host a reeling Colts’ team that competed in games against the Browns, 49ers, and Cardinals but were outscored by a 155-49 margin in their other four contests.

AGAINST THE SPREAD (14-15 on season)

Pick of the Week
Under 47.5 NO/CHI

Other Plays to Consider
Patriots -7
Steelers -3
Browns +9.5
Over 46 CAR/TB
