NFL Week 8 Betting Trends
After Denver’s loss at Indianapolis last weekend, the Kansas City Chiefs are the lone remaining unbeaten team in the NFL. The Chiefs won just two games all of last season, it’s amazing the difference one year can make. It seems like a safe bet to assume no team will go unbeaten this year. Can the Jaguars actually win a game though? That’s a much tougher question to answer. Six teams have bye weeks this weekend, so the schedule is a little lighter than normal.
