The Steelers, Packers and Chargers enter Sunday's NFL schedule as the best NFL bets against the spread, each at 5-1. Kansas City, Arizona and Cincinnati are right behind them at 5-2. At the other end, Dallas is the only team yet to cover one of their NFL spreads. Will those trends continue in Week 8, helping you cash your NFL parlays?
Of the three best against the spread teams, only Pittsburgh is an underdog Sunday. The 6-0 Steelers are getting four points at Baltimore in the latest William Hill NFL odds in a must-watch AFC North rivalry that will air on CBS. The road team has covered five of the last seven meetings, but the Ravens are 7-3-1 against the spread in their last 11 matchups. Before you make any Week 8 NFL picks and predictions, see the NFL best bets from legendary handicapper Hammerin' Hank Goldberg over at SportsLine.
A beloved national treasure, Goldberg swept his three NFL best bets last week, cashing easily with the Buccaneers, Packers and Panthers. In fact, his picks covered by a combined 33 points. It was the second time in three weeks Hammer nailed his three-game parlay, and anyone who followed those parlays was rewarded with a 6-1 payout.
Thus, Hammer enters Week 8 on a stunning run: Over the final 10 weeks of last season and through seven weeks this season, he is an incredible 34-17 on his NFL best bets, an amazing 67 percent cash rate.
This is the same handicapper who enjoyed 15 winning seasons in his 17-year ESPN run. In 2017, Hammer competed against 10 top handicappers in the Las Vegas Review-Journal's NFL Challenge and beat them all, finishing 50-29-6 on NFL picks against-the-spread.
Now, Hammer has locked in three confident best bets for Week 8. If you parlay his picks, you could be looking at a 6-1 payout. You can only see them here.
Top Week 8 NFL expert picks
Breaking down the NFL Week 8 schedule, Hammer says the Raiders (+2.5) will light up the Browns' depleted defense. Hammer knows Raiders quarterback Derek Carr has thrown at least two touchdown passes in five straight games and only been picked off twice all season.
Wideout Nelson Agholor has emerged as a big-play threat, with three touchdown catches of 20-plus yards.
The Raiders have covered four of their past five games, not to mention five of their last seven on grass. Las Vegas already has knocked off the Chiefs and Saints, so it won't be a surprise if they win outright, making the Browns an easy fade in his NFL expert picks.
