2014 NFL Week 8 Betting Tips

Week 7 in the NFL was a rather lackluster week, as I recorded a 2-2 record last week. The Indianapolis Colts and New Orleans Saints had no trouble covering, but that was not the same story for the New York Giants and San Francisco 49ers, as they both flamed out. I look to have a […]

Just one week remains in the season, and plenty remains to be determined. The last Wildcard spot in each conference is up for grabs, as are all four NFC divisions.
