NFL picks against the spread, Week 8: Looking at the full slate plus 5 SuperContest picks

The 49ers are on a bye this week, but there are still games to pick! Here are my ATS picks, including five LVH SuperContest picks.

It’s time for Week 8 picks against the spread! The San Francisco 49ers have a bye this week, so no chance to lose money on them. Although, if I had the chance, I’d probably take bye laying the points.

For the third straight season, I am back for the LVH SuperContest. SB Nation's partners over at Odds Shark are sponsoring my entry again. The contest requires selecting 5 games each week and picking them against the spread. This year's contest is expected to have over 1,800 participants, which is a new record for the SuperContest. SB Nation is represented by myself and Matt Ufford, and there are folks from all over the blogosphere involved. Everybody picks their own five games and there will be a running leaderboard HERE. You can follow my standings under the name "Fooch.”

I am not good at this right now. I went 1-4 last week, and have one winning week (a 3-2 performance two weeks ago) on the season. I have gone 1-4 three times, 2-3 three times, and the 3-2 two weeks ago. It’s a mess. That being said, here are my SuperContest picks for Week 8. Fade at your leisure:

BROWNS (+3) vs. Jets: Browns
BUCCANEERS (-1.5) vs. Raiders: Buccaneers
BRONCOS (-5.5) vs. Chargers: Broncos
Eagles (+4.5) vs. COWBOYS: Eagles
BEARS (+6) vs. Vikings: Bears

Three dogs, four home teams. I’m going against the huge public money for picks this week. I have not had success thus far, so we’ll see if the public wins again this week.

Here are all my picks for Week 8:

TIANS vs. Jaguars (+3): Jaguars - Loss
Bengals vs. Washington, London (+3): Bengals
FALCONS vs. Packers (+3): Packers
TEXANS vs. Lions (+2.5): Texans
SAINTS vs. Seahawks (-2.5): Seahawks
BILLS vs. Patriots (-6.5): Patriots
BROWNS vs. Jets (-3): Browns
BUCCANEERS vs. Raiders (+1.5): Buccaneers
COLTS vs. Chiefs (-2.5): Colts
BRONCOS vs. Chargers (+5.5): Broncos
PANTHERS vs. Cardinals (+3): Panthers
COWBOYS vs. Eagles (+4.5): Eagles
BEARS vs. Vikings (-6): Bears
