NFL Week 8 slate started with the Buffalo Bills getting back on track with a home win over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on Thursday Night Football and there are a bunch of other teams looking to redeem their reputations in the remaining games.

One of the most fun bets you can have with an NFL wager is to swing for the fences with a millionaire parlay, so I’ve taken a money line pick from every remaining game this week to create this huge +234163 odds parlay at DraftKings Sportsbook.

If you’re going to go for a big win, this is the week to do it with no teams on a bye, so “all” we have to do is to string together 15 wins to hit the jackpot — you can’t win the lottery if you don’t buy a ticket!

Let’s see the teams that could make us rich across Sunday and Monday night. Make sure to also check out our NFL Week 8 picks for every matchup.

Philadelphia Eagles ML over Washington Commanders (-325)

This is hopefully a straightforward game with which to ease into our mammoth task this week. The Eagles have already beaten the Commanders once this season, although that game was a lot closer than the odds for this one suggest.

Miami Dolphins ML over New England Patriots (-470)

Again, no surprises here and if this leg fails we will be extremely disappointed. The Dolphins have been obliterating weaker teams but running into trouble against stronger squads, so luckily for them the Pats fall into the first category. This is another game where our pick is looking for a quick season sweep in their division.

New York Jets ML over New York Giants (-148)

The Battle of New York sees Zach Wilson and the Jets with a chance to get a 3rd straight win against their co-tenants of MetLife Stadium. It will also be a battle of backup QBs, with Daniel Jones ruled out again, and the remainder of the rosters gives a big advantage to the Jets.

Los Angeles Rams ML over Dallas Cowboys (+215)

Even though we need 15 wins, there still have to be some upsets, and one could come in Texas, with the 3-4 Rams now well used to playing strong teams. The Cowboys can throw in a bad day every now and then and new dad Sean McVay’s team are just the kind of opponents who can deliver an upset.

Pittsburgh Steelers ML over Jacksonville Jaguars (+120)

This is a pick that’s really only on value grounds with the Steelers being plus-money home underdogs. The Jaguars are the better team, but the Steelers have won 4 games despite being dominated on the stats sheet in most of those contests and this road trip will be a real test of character for Jacksonville.

Minnesota Vikings ML over Green Bay Packers (-120)

The Packers’ situation might be worse than we suspected in the first few weeks, but now they’re 2-4 and this week they’ve been adding a new defensive player to their IR list at regular intervals. I’ll take the Vikings to back up their win over the 49ers with a divisional success on the road.

Houston Texans ML over Carolina Panthers (-180)

This game might have looked a good chance for a Panthers win at the start of the season, but the Texans are 3-3 now while the Panthers are 0-6. This game unusually features the first 3 picks of this year’s draft, with CJ Stroud having a point to prove against rival QB Bryce Young, who will be chased around by Houston’s Will Anderson.

Indianapolis Colts ML over New Orleans Saints (-105)

The Colts are actually home underdogs for this one even though they’re not at plus-money but they showed plenty of spirit in last week’s 1-point home loss to the Browns and could do better this week. The Saints have lost 4 of their last 5 and don’t appeal as road favorites.

Tennessee Titans ML over Atlanta Falcons (+120)

This is another close call where the Titans are more of a value pick than a confident one given they are on the brink of a fire sale and have an unenviable quarterback situation. The Falcons have been making some progress offensively but this is not an easy place for a young QB to go.

Seattle Seahawks ML over Cleveland Browns (-180)

You might not realize that this is a battle of 4-2 teams, but they both have injury issues coming into this game. The Browns found a way to get over the line against the Colts, but have PJ Walker starting at QB again this week and are entering a hostile road environment.

Kansas City Chiefs ML over Denver Broncos (-325)

This is a chance for the Chiefs to beat the Broncos for the second time in 3 weeks after a fairly grim 19-8 win in Week 6. They turned it up a notch against the Chargers last week, though, and this is one of the easier picks on Sunday’s slate.

Baltimore Ravens ML over Arizona Cardinals (-500)

The Ravens are burdened by the pressure of having moved into the top 3 in this week’s Pickswise Power Rankings, but that’s surely not as bad as the Cardinals’ situation as we have them in 31st!

Cincinnati Bengals ML over San Francisco 49ers (+170)

We need another upset to boost our odds and, however unlikely it might have seemed for the 49ers to fall from 5-0 to 5-3, the Bengals are one of the teams best-equipped to deliver another setback. Whether it’s Brock Purdy or Sam Darnold at QB for the Niners, their preparation for this one against the rested Bengals coming off a bye has not been ideal.

Los Angeles Chargers ML over Chicago Bears (-410)

The Chargers are a team to have second thoughts about as any type of favorite, let alone one with odds this low. Even so, there will be no more excuses if they can’t dispatch this Bears team without too much drama.

Detroit Lions ML over Las Vegas Raiders (-375)

Two of last week’s big upset victims go head-to-head but it was far more forgivable for the Lions to lose to the Ravens than for the Raiders to be whacked by Tyson Bagent and the Bears. I’ll take the team being motivated to bounce back by an angry Dan Campbell.
