Week 8 NFL Predictions: October 28, 2018
JAGUARS vs EAGLES
Pick: UNDER 43 POINTS -110
The Jacksonville Jaguars and Philadelphia Eagles will square off in London England with both teams desperately needing a win. Scoring points will be a struggle in this one. Both teams styles counter each other’s perfectly. The Jags need to rely on the ground game due to the poor play of Blake Bortles. However they face the leagues number 2 rushing defense. The Eagles rely on the passing game for most of their offense but they have to face the number 1 passing defense in the league here. Jacksonville has really struggled to score. They have only scored 28 points in their last 3 games. The Eagles have only scored more than 21 points in a game once this season. It’s not gonna get any easier in this game. Take the under.
RAVENS vs PANTHERS
Pick: PANTHERS +2.5 -110
The Baltimore Ravens will come into Carolina to take on the Panthers. The Ravens have not impressed me much on the road this season and this is going to be a very tough game for them. The Ravens rely on their pass rush a lot but I believe the mobility of Cam Newton will be able to counter that. If Newton is able to use his mobility he will open up this Ravens defense for the rest of their offensive play makers. I don’t see the Ravens being able to get much of a running game going against the 8th best rushing defense in the NFL. The Panthers are riding a lot of momentum after their comeback win over the Eagles last weekend while the Ravens are coming off a heartbreaking loss to the Saints. Take Carolina to play a strong game and pick up the win at home.
