Gary’s picks

NFL Football

Week 8!  To keep up with our record for the year, along with results from each game we pick, please visit our Gambling Picks page!


Eagles (-3.5) vs Jaguars   (Sunday / 8:30am CT / NFL Network)  

  • the Jaguars are down their top 3 CBs this weekend, which should make things a little easier for Eagles QB Carson Wentz
  • still no Leonard Fournette for the Jags, which won’t help Blake Bortles, if he’s even the starting QB
  • Jags have scored 14 (at Chiefs), 7 (at Cowboys), and 7 (vs Texans) – an average of <10ppg – in their last 3
  • the Jaguars are having fights in their own locker room between teammates, and this just feels like a dumpster fire.  I’ve still got faith in the Eagles, so I’m rolling with Philly to take care of business in London, even though the Jags are 3-0 across the pond


Broncos @ Chiefs (-10)   (Sunday / 12pm CT / CBS)  

  • Chiefs are 7-0 against the spread so far this year
  • Broncos are 2-9 ATS as a road dog since 2016
  • I’ve just got no faith in the Broncos to be able to keep up with the Chiefs here


Seahawks @ Lions (-2.5)   (Sunday / 12pm CT / FOX)  

  • Seattle is 2-4-1 ATS since last season as a road underdog
  • Lions are 5-1 ATS this season, and are starting to really improve
  • I think Matt Stafford and Kerryon Johnson will put up points on this Seahawks defense, who really misses Earl Thomas, and the Lions will slow down the Seattle passing game.


Colts (-1.5) @ Raiders  (Sunday / 3:05pm CT / CBS)  

  • there are reports of infighting in the Raiders camp, as Jon Gruden told players they were not trading Amari Cooper… and then they traded Cooper.
  • the Raiders are just terrible, and the Colts kinda found themselves in a 37-5 win against the Bills last week.


Saints (+1) @ Vikings  (Sunday / 7:20pm CT / NBC)

  • the Saints are 9-0 ATS in October the last 3 seasons
  • there will be a lot of points scored here, but I trust the Saints offense more than the Vikings right now
  • Saints have some demons to exorcise in Minneapolis after last season’s Minnesota Miracle, and I think they’re fired up for this one
