Best Week 8 Parlays

All odds and lines from PointsBet, current as of Thursday at 7:30 a.m. ET.

Green Bay Packers -7 (-105)
Tennessee Titans-Cincinnati Bengals Over 53.5 (-110)
Los Angeles Rams-Miami Dolphins Under 46 (-110)

$10 bet wins $61.16 (+611)

Green Bay Packers -7 (-105)

Green Bay is 5-1 against the spread this season and will get a Vikings team that is 3-3 ATS. The Packers are also 4-1 ATS in their last five meetings overall facing Minnesota.

Clearly the superior team, the Packers will win in a similar manner as they’ve done all season. Their games haven’t been close. The Packers have won all five of their games by at least seven points.

Tennessee Titans-Cincinnati Bengals Over 53.5 (-110)

The Titans-Bengals matchup features two offenses that can score points and a pair of defenses that fail to show up at times. Tennessee is surrendering the 16th-most points per game (25.5) while the Bengals are yielding the 12th-most (27.7).

The Over is 8-3 in Cincinnati’s last 11 games and 5-1 in the past six games on the Titans’ end. I’m not worried about the Titans offense going off; it is a matter of if Joe Burrow can get going and as we’ve seen through the early portion of the season, he can. Burrow has thrown for north of 300 yards passing in 5-of-7 games this season, a trend that will continue on Sunday.

Los Angeles Rams-Miami Dolphins Under 46 (-110)

The Rams and Dolphins both have enough talent to pop on offense at-will, but it is their defense that is carrying them in 2020. The Dolphins have surrendered the third-fewest points per game (18.8) in the NFL this season while the Rams are allowing the second-fewest (17.7).

Considering the fact that Jared Goff doesn’t always play well in tough matchups plus the fact that the Dolphins are rolling out a rookie quarterback with two pass attempts to his name, points may be hard to come by in this matchup, which favors the Under.

The total has hit this level at 4-1 in the Rams’ last five games and 4-2 in Miami’s last six.

Anthony Cervino is 10-6-1 on his Best Bets for the 2020 NFL season.

All odds and lines are from PointsBet, current as of Thursday at 5 p.m. ET.

Indianapolis Colts -2.5 (-125)
Los Angeles Rams -3.5 (-110)
New England Patriots +4 (-110)

Bet $10 to win $55.60 (+556)

While I typically don’t like betting road teams, here’s a three-leg parlay consisting solely of away-team plays.

And they’re all in Week 8’s 1 p.m. slate.

We have the Colts visiting the Lions, the Rams at the Dolphins in Tua’s debut and the Patriots looking to end a losing streak against their division-rival Bills.

Indianapolis Colts -2.5 (-125)

For the Colts-Lions game, I like that sportsbooks are juicing the odds, meaning it costs you a bit more than the usual -110, to take the favorite.

That favorite, the visiting Colts, had an extra week to prepare for the Lions, a team that has won back-to-back games over two of the worst in the NFL (the Jaguars and the Falcons).

This mini-winning streak is likely part of the reason why this spread is as tight as it is. The Colts are simply better than the 3-point difference they need to cover in Detroit come Sunday.

Los Angeles Rams -3.5 (-110)

Taking the Rams over the Dolphins is based on one thing, and one thing alone: The Rams defense going up against a rookie making his first NFL start.

With Aaron Donald rushing the QB and Jalen Ramsey essentially taking away half the field, Tua could be seeing ghosts wearing blue and yellow throughout the afternoon. Donald alone has 21 QB pressures and 8 sacks in the Rams’ seven games this season. This should spell trouble for the Dolphins’ new starting QB and be enough for the Rams to win and cover this weekend.

New England Patriots +4 (-110)

I’ll call this the last leg, since the Patriots are the only underdog I’m taking here. While the Pats have seemingly hit rock bottom, this is do-or-die for New England.

If Bill Belichick’s team loses and falls to 2-5, their 2020 campaign is essentially over. I simply can’t see that happening, going up against Bills QB Josh Allen, who has an 0-3 record and just three TDs to go along with five picks in his career versus the Patriots.

But if somehow this is a new version of Allen, and Buffalo pulls off a win, I like the leeway of the 4 points as we can lose by a field goal and still win our bet.
