NFL Week 8 odds: Six teams could face double-digit point spreads

Chris Graythen

Huge home underdogs are tempting NFL bettors as the opening Week 8 odds were posted Tuesday.

Four teams - including the San Francisco 49ers which will likely open as chalk of two touchdowns or more - face double-digit spreads in Week 8, and two more could join the fun this week.

The New Orleans Saints are laying 13 points at home to the Buffalo Bills, while the Denver Broncos, despite a Week 7 loss, are a 14-point favorite against the Washington Redskins. The Seattle Seahawks are huge 11.5-point road favorites at the St. Louis Rams in the Monday Night contest, while San Francisco is expected to open around -16 versus the Jacksonville Jaguars in London.

The Kansas City Chiefs, at 7-0, are the only remaining unbeaten team. They are a nine-point favorite early Tuesday over the struggling Cleveland Browns, and many experts predict that spread will balloon to double digits.

Aaron Rodgers and the Green Bay Packers visit the Minnesota Vikings in a game that remained off the board early Tuesday. The Vikings looked terrible on Monday night against the New York Giants and open as double-digit home dogs.

The week kicks off with another big road favorite. The winless Tampa Bay Buccaneers get seven points at home opposing the Carolina Panthers.
