PlayUSA NFL Bets Navigator Week 8

Welcome back to the PlayUSA Bets Navigator!

Turns out the Arizona Cardinals are beatable. After Thursday nights showdown against the Green Bay Packers, there is no long an undefeated team. For another year, the 72′ Miami Dolphins 17-0 record is safe.

For those needing a refresher, each week PlayUSA will gather three bets we are watching throughout the NFL betting season.

You should know, were are not professional oddsmakers in any way, shape, or form. Although, we do follow the legal US betting market and NFL odds, this content is strictly from a personal perspective. In short, we want to have a little fun with it.

Now, let’s dive into Week 7.

Bets we are watching: Week 8

Not enough touchdowns flocked to Baltimore last week but Arizona did prove when facing inferior opponents they can win big. This week, it’s all about offense and the availability of one key player.

This week’s odds come by way of DraftKings Sportsbook. More odds below:

Season record: 2-4

Tennessee Titans at Indianapolis Colts

  • Point Spread: TEN +3

The Titans aren’t the flashiest team in the NFL but they score points. They also have a beast of a running back in Derrick Henry who has amassed 869 yards on 191 carries with 10 touchdowns. Tennessee has played three close games this season and comes into Indy with a 5-2 record. On the flip side, the 3-4 Colts are giving up, on average, 21.3 points per game to opponents, according to ESPN. I expect Henry to run wild.

Remember, this is a point spread bet. The Titans need to lose by 3 points or win the game.

Dallas Cowboys over Minnesota Vikings

  • Moneyline: +135 (Dallas)

This entire bet hinges on one thing, the availability of Dak Prescott.

Through six games, the Cowboys’ on field general has thrown for 1,813 yards and 16 touchdowns and is a big reason Dallas is 5-1 and sitting on top of the NFC East. If he plays, they have a significant advantage. If he doesn’t, well, everything rests on Ezekiel Elliott.

This is a classic moneyline bet, thus, Dallas has to win the game to win the bet.

 Michael Pittman Jr. + Dallas Goedert + C.J. Uzomah all to score (anytime)

  • 3-Leg Parlay: +2582

It’s “go big or go home” week! Double tight ends and the top wide receiver for the Colts.

Pittman Jr. leads all Colts receivers with 35 catches and 508 yards. Although he has only scored 2 touchdowns this year, he faces a beatable Tennessee secondary.

Goedert is tied for the second-most receptions on the Eagles with 18 catches. He is Jalen Hurts safety valve and is a big target when the team gets into the red-zone.

Lastly, the Bengals offense has been on fire. Uzomah may not be a household name but he’s 4th on the team in targets (19), 3rd in receiving yards (256), and 2nd in touchdowns (5).

One touchdown from each player, on paper, is doable.

Since this is a parlay bet, all three players listed above need to score a TD (anytime) in order for the bet to win.
