Joe Flacco and the Baltimore Ravens opened as 2.5-point road underdogs against the division-rival Cincinnati Bengals for their Week 8 matchup on Sunday afternoon, but heading into the weekend that line has moved to a pick’em.
Baltimore, however, is just 3-7-1 ATS in its last 11 games against Cincinnati according to the NFL Week 8 betting trends, while the Bengals are 4-0 both SU and ATS in their last four home games against AFC North teams – and 11-2 ATS in their last 13 home games overall.

The Green Bay at New Orleans betting matchup for Sunday night also now sits as a pick’em at the sportsbooks after opening at Saints -1.5 earlier in the week. New Orleans’ poor start to the season has trumped their 23-5-1 ATS record over their last 29 games as home favorites.
The Chiefs has improved from 6-point to 8.5-point home favorites against the Rams for Sunday, with the Colts going from 1.5-point to 3-point road favorites against the Steelers, and the Dolphins going from 4-point to 7-point road favorites against the Jaguars.
The Panthers opened as 3-point home underdogs against the Seahawks for their Sunday afternoon matchup, and that line has grown to Seattle -5.5 over the past few days. And over in London, England the Lions have improved slightly from 3-point to 3.5-point favorites against the Atlanta Falcons for their game at Wembley Stadium.
