NFL Best Bets for Week 8
27th 2012 - Old Man Winner

Det -2.5 vs. Sea

When everyone is high on one team and low on another its usually time to take the latter.

All the analysts have fallen in love with the Seahawks and seem to think the the Lions are worse than the new Brad Pitt Chanel #5 commercial (not possible). Now is the perfect time to jump on the Motorcity low rider bandwagon.

Seattle is awesome at home with their 12th man support, but do not travel well at all. Although they have had a couple extra days of rest they still have to travel 3/4's across the country and play an early game against a team that is in desperate need of a win to stay relevant in their division.

The Lions have not looked good this whole year. Stafford is looking up in the QB rankings at the likes of Andy Dalton, Andrew Luck, Ryan Fitzpatrick, and is tied with Carson Palmer. C'MON MAN! And, if that's not bad enough, Mr. $1M per game Man, Calvin Johnson, is looking up in the WR rankings at household names like Randall Cobb, Lance Moore, Andre Roberts, and Danny Amendola - and he's missed 4 games to injury!!!! They also lost their #2 WR Nate Burleson to injury last week.

All that understood, to borrow a phrase from fantasy guru, Mathew Berry, the hate has gone too far! Detroit's defense actually looked pretty good against the Bears last Monday night and they are too good offensively to be held down for long.

I like the Lions defense to play a solid game this week and expect their offense to finally show their "A" game.

I also like:

Wash + 5 @ Pit and OVER 47.5
I expect a shootout here. Neither of these defenses will hold up in this one. RGIII and Morris should have great games and I expect Santana Moss that hit another long one this week. Griffin throws a beautiful deep ball and in the second half the Steelers will get caught bringing too many into the box. Big Ben will also have a nice game, but Pitt will be too one-dimensional.
