New York Giants vs. Dallas Cowboys Free Pick

The Giants shook off a sluggish 2-2 start to post three-straight victories that has them back on top in the NFC East at 5-2 straight-up. They are 3-3-1 against the spread this season and the total has stayed UNDER in five of the seven games.

The reason for the turnaround other than the fourth-quarter play of quarterback Eli Manning is a revitalized defense that has returned to the form that helped carry this team all the way to a Super Bowl title last season.

NFL Betting: NFL Matchups for Week 8

Here at Bang the Book, we have all of the top matchups of the 2012 NFL betting campaign covered! Today, we’re taking a look at the best matchups for Week 8!

As badly as the 2-4 Bucs have looked at times this year, they really aren’t all that far out of the thick of the fight for the playoffs in the NFC, where seemingly no one really wants to put a chokehold on the few available slots. Minnesota is one of the teams that really could make a difference in the conference this year, as it needs perhaps just five more wins over the course of the rest of the campaign to ultimately end up in the second season in the rough and tumble NFC North

Pittsburgh Steelers vs. Cincinnati Bengals Free Pick

It has been an up and down ride for the Steelers so far with a 2-3 record straight-up and a 1-4 record against the spread. They will quickly have to put last Thursday’s heart-breaking 26-23 loss to Tennessee as 5.5-point road favorite out of their mind to avoid falling into a huge hole in the AFC North.

Ben Roethlisberger has Pittsburgh’s offense ranked seventh in the NFL in passing yards per game, but what is missing is the ability to consistently run the ball.
