Full list of Week 8 straight-up picks with confidence levels

We make picks for all 15 NFL games with levels of confidence ahead of Week 8.

The NFL wraps up the October slate of games this weekend with Monday Night Football closing things out on Halloween night. Week 8 opens with Ravens vs. Bucs on Thursday Night Football and closes with Bengals vs. Browns on Monday. In between, notable matchups include 49ers-Rams, Giants-Seahawks, and even a notable Packers-Bills game that sees Aaron Rodgers getting double digit points on the road.

With all that in mind, I’m back with straight-up picks for Week 8 of the regular season. I pick each game’s winner, and then slot the picks based on confidence levels — high, medium, low, and no. A game with three asterisks (***) after it indicates a game where I’m picking the betting underdog to get the win.

Last week, I went 7-7 thanks to a poor showing from my medium picks. I was 1-0 on high confidence picks and 5-3 on medium confidence. I finished 1-3 on low and 0-1 on no confidence picks, but it’s the medium where I need to hit more consistently. On to this week’s picks!
