Washington @ Minnesota: 24/10/19 at 8:20 PM ET
Quarterbacks looking for revenge clash when Case Keenum faces Kirk Cousins at U.S. Bank Stadium in Minneapolis, MN. Keenum led Minnesota (5-2) to 2017 NFC Championship game while Cousins led Washington (1-6) to a Wild Card berth twice.
Neither has been a house on fire in their new homes but Cousins is the better of the two.
WAS vs MIN Prop Consideration: 1st Half Total points OVER 21 (-185)
Minnesota sits sixth averaging 391 YPG on offence - including 160 rushing yards per game. Washington is 27th allowing 134.4 rush YPG on defence. With just four days to prepare - the better coaches and superior teams have a big edge during TNF.
The price is a monster but the Vikings have scored 38 and 42 points in their last two games.
Seattle @ Atlanta: 26/10/19 at 1:00 PM ET
Early game action on Sunday has Seattle (5-2) visiting Atlanta (1-6) at Mercedes-Benz Stadium.
The Seahawks saw their three-game winning streak snapped as they were blasted 30-16 by Baltimore at home last week. Riding a five game losing skid, the Falcons 2019 NFL playoff window is almost closed.
Super Bowl LIV futures odds drop Seattle (29.00) out of the Top 10 while Atlanta (501.01) is starting to look at NFL 2020.
Atlanta just traded WR Mohamed Sanu (Patriots) to gain some cap space and banked a 2nd round draft pick. Sanu always played second fiddle to Julio Jones but was on his way to another 90+ target season.
The Seahawks have lost back-to-back just seven times since the arrival of QB Russell Wilson in 2012.
Despite yesterday's tough loss, we're focused on getting better heading into Atlanta. pic.twitter.com/g9CmbNQ5fs— Seattle Seahawks (@Seahawks) October 21, 2019
Week 8 Parlay Free Pick: Rams + Saints + Packers
We have posted guaranteed cash out options over the last two weeks. Opinions on buy outs and hedging are personal so we avoid suggesting which way bettors should go.
As we have the last two weeks though, we will usually take a plump bird in the hand rather than trying to catch a plumper one in the bush.
While cash out decisions can decrease profits – they also turn a 2-1 losing accumulator into a winner.
Had we not taken the two recent cash outs - our NFL Free Picks bankroll would be sitting at +652.18 instead of our current +1097.78 balance. We rarely see a need for greed eh.
With our Week 8 parlay free pick, we are taking alternate spread prices on the Rams (London), Saints and Packers over the Bengals, Cardinals and Chiefs. Cincinnati (0-7) is terrible, Arizona (3-3-1) is on a sketchy three game winning streak and Kansas City will be without stud QB Patrick Mahomes.
- Rams -9.5 (1.50)
- Saints -6.0 (1.50)
- Green Bay -2.5 (1.54)

Early Parlay Cash Out Opportunity
CSB Week 8 parlay free pick is two-thirds home. The early cash out offer, from Bet365, returns the original stake plus a net +109 profit.
Bettors stand to earn a +270 net return if Green Bay covers (-2.5) vs Kansas City OR take a (-100) loss if they don’t.
Bettors need to decide on an extra +161 profit or a (-100) loss on the parlay ticket. In a broader scope, Week 8 free picks are down (-18) after the two single selections. Taking the cash out moves the day to a +91.20 net return.
A failed Green Bay cover leaves bettors with a (-118) deficit heading into Monday Night Football. It’s a risk vs reward decision for bettors to make based on their gambling style. The bird in the bush is plumper than the one in-hand.
Miami @ Pittsburgh 28/10/19 @ 8:15 PM ET
We get a plug your nose matchup on Monday Night Football as Miami (0-6) meets Pittsburgh (2-4) at Heinz Field in Pennsylvania.
The Steelers went on the road and cracked the LA Chargers 24-17 with third string rookie pivot Delvin Hodges guiding the offense. QB Mason Rudolph could return from injury here.
Getting outscored by a 35-10 average score – the Dolphins are one of the worst teams in NFL history. Miami is in a “battle” with the Bengals (0-7) for #1 overall pick in the 2020 NFL Draft.
Understanding the Steelers certainly aren’t a scoring juggernaut two touchdowns and a hook is a big line.
As such, we are buying the ATS price down one point.
