SUNDAY'S week 8 slate is upon us in the NFL and I’ve got my eye on two picks that look fairly safe for a double.
The Steelers are fresh off their bye week at home to a Cleveland team who still don’t know how to win. So many of their games have gone right to the end, but they’ve come up short in most.
Pittsburgh will take heart of the Browns inability to stop the run, so James Connor should have a big day. Pittsburgh should also know by now that their division is no easy win this year, so they’ll have to take this one to keep the pressure on Baltimore and Cinci.
Second pick comes from LA where I might be seeing this through green tinted shades, but I cannot believe the size of the spread against my Packers who are also fresh off a bye.
As you know I was BIG on the Rams for their division and NFC Conference and its looking like good picks, but for Aaron Rodgers to be almost double digits on the road is baffling in my opinion. At 2-5 you can get a 14.5 lead which in my option is massive for the way Rodgers is playing despite his teammates letting him down (same old story for Green Bay)
Travel shouldn’t have too much factor as they’re fresh off a bye so back the Pack with a little confidence.
