NFL Week 8 OddsShark Computer Picks

There will be one less undefeated team in the NFL this Sunday as the Green Bay Packers and Denver Broncos, both perfect so far this season, clash at Mile High. The OddsShark Super Computer has crunched the numbers and picked the sterling defense of the Broncos to shut down the explosive offensive of the Packers with a projected final score of 24-17.4 in favour of Denver.

The Broncos have allowed the fewest yards per game in the NFL, while also allowing the second fewest points per game. The defense has sparkled thanks to their pressure, which has them first in the NFL in sacks and fourth in interceptions.

The Packers have been their usual offensive powerhouse this season and have averaged 27.3 points per game. Green Bay has only played two games on the road this season, but quarterback Aaron Rodgers has been nearly perfect with a 72.7 completion percentage while throwing four touchdowns and no interceptions. 

Steelers to Squeak Past the Bengals

The Pittsburgh Steelers are expecting to get quarterback Ben Roethlisberger back in the lineup and that boost has led the OddsShark Super Computer to give a projected 25.6-24 win to the Steelers over the Cincinnati Bengals.

The Steelers have performed admirably with their starting signal caller out the past four games, 2-2 SU and 2-1-1 ATS, but Mike Vick and Landry Jones are a far cry from Big Ben. In two games against the Bengals last season, Roethlisberger threw for 667 yards and five touchdowns.

The undefeated Bengals have been dominating this season thanks to the progression of quarterback Andy Dalton. The fifth-year signal caller was often criticized before this season, but has thrust himself into a fringe MVP candidate with 14 touchdowns and two interceptions through six games. 

The Rams On The Right Side Of A Blowout

The St. Louis Rams and their fans are familiar with mediocrity, but the Super Computer is expecting them to beat the visiting San Francisco 49ers 30.8-13.5 in the biggest blowout of the week.

The Rams have been carried to a .500 record on the back of their attacking defense and running back Todd Gurley. The St. Louis defence has the best red zone percentage in all of football and has registered 23 sacks. In the Rams past three games, Gurley has rushed for 433 yards and two touchdowns.

The 49ers are trending in the wrong direction as they have picked up just one win in their past six games. San Fran has given up the second most yards of offense in the NFL and have allowed 25.7 points per game.
