Well I hate to brag but YES YES YES we went a perfect 3-0 last week and look to keep rolling in week 8 of the National Football League.

Baltimore -3 at Carolina:

No respect for the Carolina Panthers as a 3 point home underdog in this game. Cam Newton is nursing a sore should but Ron Rivera says he is 100 percent playing so since I am riding the Panthers getting 3 points I am hoping Cam is 100 percent. The Panthers have covered 4 of its last 5 games as a home underdog and Newton has thrown multiple touchdowns in 5 straight games. The Ravens defence destroys subpar offences but the Panthers are rolling and possess great value getting a field goal at home. Pick: Carolina +3

New Orleans pick vs Minnesota:

These 2 teams played twice last year with Minnesota winning both week 1 and in the playoffs. The Vikings walk off td in the playoffs was the first walk off regulation TD in NFL playoffs history. Again we are playing the value here. Since Minnesota's shocking loss to Buffalo as a 16 point favorite they have righted the ship and are playing at the elite level they are expected to. The Saints won in Baltimore after a shocking Justin Tucker missed PAT but are now playing back to back road games which is very tough. Minnesota has won 3 straight and are 14-3 all time at home vs New Orleans. They are a bargain not laying points in this spot. Pick: Minnesota Pick

Philadelphia -3 vs Jacksonville:

The Jags are having trouble winning right now but the good news for them as they are 3-0 in their last 3 games at Wembley Stadium. The problem is this Jags team appears to be broken. They are calling each other out. The defence has fallen off considerably and the offence is struggling mightily with No Leonard Fournette and a bad quarterback in Blake Bortles. The Eagles blew a 17 point 4th quarter lead vs Carolina last week but their issues are in the secondary which isn't a big deal since Bortles will not be able to exploit that. Look for the defending champs to get back on track in a game they need to win. Pick: Eagles -3

Enjoy the games and good luck!!
