Week 8 Complimentary NFL Teaser Results
This week we’re featuring another sweetheart, 4-team teaser that offers 13 points per game.
Denver + 9 @ Cincinnati
Green Bay Packers + 3 v. Arizona
Chicago + 9 @ Tennessee
Detroit + 7.5 @ Jacksonville
Why we like these games:
Denver is rolling right now, and spotting Peyton Manning almost 10 points makes this an almost no-brainer.
The Green Bay Packers played terribly last week and still managed to pull out the W. I don’t expect back-to-back poor performances, especially with Jordy Nelson back in the mix. The fact that the Cards can’t score also helps.
Chicago’s defense is too good to let Tennessee beat them by double-digits.
Stafford finally looked like his old self last week, and it came against a good Seattle defense. I’m thinking this is a sign of things to come. The Jags aren’t beating the Lions by double-digits.
